Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The Masked Royale and Incineroar is still better than WWE

Parents need to know that one episode is banned in the U.S.A. because Ash/Satoshi disguises his face to look like the Pokémon Passimian. There are some frightening scenes that may be too much for young children such as The Masked Royale's Incineroar falling on Faba, almost crushing him to death. Other than that, this anime series is okay for children 6 and older. It is available on Disney XD on Demand and on the channel. It is usually paired up with Beyblade Burst Turbo and Inazuma Eleven Ares on Saturday mornings, and Beyblade Burst Turbo on weekday afternoons. It was formally paired up with Yo-kai Watch until November 2018.

This title has:

Too much violence
