A Great Video Game Adaptation
18 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Pokémon" is an Animé based on one of the most popular Nintendo Video game series of the same name and one of the most popular franchises ever.

it has Video Games, Cards, Books, Toys, The Cartoon series, Movies and Much More.

And "Pokémon" is by far one of the best video game franchises of all time, and it's up there with "Super Mario"; "The Legend of Zelda"; "Sonic the Hedgehog"; "Tekken"; "Street Fighter"; "Final Fantasy"; and "Soul Calibur" as one of the greatest video game series' ever!

Pokémon was easily my first and most-loved Animé ever, it's not the worst show ever it's an awesome show

Everyone loved the Pokémon games, so of course the show was gonna be a big hit as well

but I don't know why so many people doesn't like this show Personally I think Dinosaur King is worse

the haters are right the episodes are a bit repetitive and the voice acting was mediocre, but what English dub of an anime didn't have bad voice acting? Not too many. This show was definitely very close to the games, the plots were interesting and fun, and it was always great to see Ash catch a new Pokémon.

the 1st 9 Seasons were great so let's start with Season 1

The show stars Ash Ketchem, a 10 year old who starts his quest to become a Pokemon master. Along the way he gets Pikachu, Misty and Brock and fight against Jesse, James, and Meowth, AKA Team Rocket.

the Kanto saga/Season 1 was by far the best it has a great plot and nostalgic Pokémon battles

Pikachu was cute, Brock was cool, Misty was hot, Team Rocket was funny (but now became one of the worst and one of the most annoying villains ever during season 3 to season 13)

the 1st episode was the best Pokémon episode to date and thats where the Pokémon story begins but too bad team rocket was not in the 1st episode until the 2nd episode

the Pokémon theme song from season 1 was one of the most memorable theme songs ever

the 2nd Season was GreatThe Johto Saga was Good but Not Great as Season 1the Hoenn Saga and the Kanto Battle Frontier Saga are Decent&Okay but it has a Few Problems

but things went way Downhill as the Diamond and Pearl Series Started

and then it just got Boring, Repetitive. The same thing happened over and over and over again just with different Pokémon/characters.I guess they were running out of ideas? Honestly most of the great shows went downhill if they run for too long.

after the Diamond and Pearl series there was a new Pokémon series Called Pokemon Best Wishes/Pokemon Black and White but i never watched them because it won't be the same

oh well Pokémon is still a cute show and its not worse then dinosaur king

Pokemon is one of the Greatest Shows of All Time, but not Phineas and Ferb nor Littlest Pet Shop 2012

I'm a Pokémon fan I like this show, the video games, and toys and everything. way better than Littlest Pet Shop 2012, Way Better than Pac-Man and the ghostly adventures and Way Better than Phineas and Ferb

but this show is probably alright for kids age 5 to 12 or if you're born in the 90s but it can be hard to watch if you're older.

if you're new for Pokemon watch the very first Season of Pokemon or play The Pokemon games on Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS Instead

if you stopped watching Pokémon after season 2 or if you stopped watching Pokémon after season 5 try Digimon (Season 1&Season 2&Season 3) or Medabots or Yu-Gi-Oh! (the Original was Better) or Power Rangers (Mighty Morphin, Zeo, Turbo, In Space, Lost Galaxy, Time Force, Wild Force, Dino Thunder, SPD, Mystic Force, Operation Overdrive, Jungle Fury, RPM, Samurai) instead
