The First Season Was The Best
1 August 2009 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the pokemon anime back at 2002, it was first when I saw the show and it's first season. The first season is till now the best; I loved most of the episodes in season 1 and after finishing from watching the entire season, I was more then excited to watch season 2. But season 2 wasn't good as i expected neither are the rest of the seasons. This show should've had one season only; till now i'm trying to like this anime again but can't. Except for season 1 each season afterwards is just worst then the other.

A word of advice: don't waste your time watching this anime's second season and onwards.
