Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This fun series, which is based on the fourth generation of Pokémon video games, stays true to its roots by combining action-packed moments with life lessons. The new characters are fun, but the iconic Pokémon battles continue to remain central to the show.

Older Pokémon fans may feel a sense of nostalgia as they watch their favorite Pokémon use their unique powers and personalities to battle it out against others, and on occasion, their trainers. But no doubt that Diamond and Pearl will entertain a new generation of viewers.
