Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Loyalty to the origins of this show make this current season a hit for followers of the beloved classic. Fans will pick right up where they left off, and as they move through this chapter, they will likely welcome the deeper unpacking of the dynamic of the Pokemon-human relationship. Prepare for those heartstrings to be tugged!

This is not the series for new or casual Pokemon viewers to just dive right in, as there's a lot of background information you need to know in order to follow the plot. But if you've been along for 23 seasons already, get ready for all the Pokemon action that you know and love!
