Gotta catch em' all!
15 April 1999 | by (Hasting, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Pokemon is the best executed cartoons of all time. It's just so cool to watch. The humor is wacked and funny and the Pokemon are so cute. I just love that Pikachu, it's just so cute to watch at. Not to mention the fact that the Game Boy game is also an awesome thing. It's an awesome show, if you go buy your Pokemon game, also go buy a video of Pokemon too. You'll be surprised.
