THIS ROCKS!!!
6 December 1998 | by (Ventura, CA) – See all my reviews

This show is one of the best on the air! It is also the best Game Boy game ever made! It remains partially true to (the game.) It tells the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Brock as they search for all 150 Pokemon. There is only one word to describe this show: Great!
