I loved this show then and I love it now!
10 September 2013 | by mijumaru354See all my reviews

Ah Pokemon,the hit video game, cards, movies and of course the TV show. Since I am a long time fan of the game, recently completing Pokemon White version for my DS, I started watching the show. My friends who have also seen the show say its pretty good. And I must agree with them. Whilst nothing spectacular, the show pretty much tells out the adventure of Ash Ketchum, who, when he turns 10, decides to go on an adventure to become Pokémon champion. These road trip stories are always the best for me as it never always takes place in one town. Now there has been several seasons, and about 17 movies (correct me if I'm wrong) and the fun factor is still there. It is a bit of a weird show if you haven't experienced any of the other Pokemon medias (e.g games, cards etc.) Whilst nothing perfect, this show is, and always shall be part of my childhood. If you are a die hard fan of the series, give it a watch. I'm 100% sure you'll like it...
