Cream of the Crop for Pokemon!

Of all the early seasons of Pokemon this is my favorite. It improves upon the previous seasons in terms of comedy, character development, story, and of course action. The big battle between Ash vs Gary is definitely worth the wait. From a parental standpoint, nothing too much to worry about. Mild Violence, minor innuendos (mostly from Brock trying to hit on girls), Misty and Jessie wearing midriff-baring outfits, and mild insults (twerps). Other than that, plenty of great messages about hard work, respect above glory, compassion, teamwork, commitment, and respecting the environment. Ash, Misty, and Brock are all great role models as well

Pretty Cool Show

I think this show gets a five. Not a lot of sex and jam donuts. Not a lot of flirting. No cursing. The right amount of vilone. Great role models are pikachu, ash and brock. Great messages for 6 and 7 year olds! :)

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This fun, final series offers fans a chance to see what happens to Ash and his friends in their quest to become Pokémon masters. It also introduces a few new colorful Pokémons, while re-introducing some characters from past seasons in an effort to bring Ashe's overall story full circle.

The stories combine the expected life lessons, and feature the fantasy battles that the overall franchise is known for. But regardless of whether you are a member of the original Pokémon generation, or a fan of the more recent reboots, if you like Pokémon, you'll find Pokémon: Master Quest entertaining.
