Great
7 January 2018 | by pokemonqtSee all my reviews

Pokémon is entertaining and fun. The XY and earlier episodes were the best. All of it is interesting and you get invested in the character although it has quite a few problems like resetting the series every few seasons and refusing to advance the plot. It does not seem to be ending anytime soon. The animation and battles are cool. It still is a good watch.
