Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

One of the strengths of this mega-popular anime series is that it appeals to kids of various ages, genders, and cultures. Although the storylines can be convoluted and meandering, the themes of loyalty, friendship, and teamwork are positive ones.

Although each episode of Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl: Sinnoh League Victors features at least one battle between Pokémon, there's nothing actually graphic or violent about it—the creatures "fight" using moves like the "Thunder Fang" and "Hydro Pumps" (basically a mystically-powerful blast of water). The villains of the show, Team Rocket, are your typical cackling bad guys, complete with a wisecracking animal sidekick (Meowth). They aren't very scary, and actually provide comic relief in the way they are portrayed as ineffectual buffoons.
