****:perfect 4 stars,quite possibly one of the most entertaining anime's somewhat based on a terrific game around.
25 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

A truly,truly wonderful anime,mix in a good amount of heart & music,kick up a little pokemon battling mayhem,& 2 main story parts make it a crumb of a bit better than the game,(Misty & Brock following with ash,the team rocket group),true contrary to popular belief it's not 80-100% accurate to the show,it's more 60% accurate,but it has been said that the show is based on the upcoming Yellow version,& the story changes are usually for the better,& the humor on this show is well paced in such as the known comic anime "Samurai Pizza Cats" so in some ways you don't have to be a big video game fan to enjoy this one.
