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.

fantastic franchise

Pokemon conveys life messages and positivity as the fundamental cores of the friendships between Ash and Co. and hence the core of the show. The games are action packed, full of beautifully designed landscapes to explore, fantastic plots that are puzzling yet exciting to be a part of and most importantly you have full control. The anime started off fantastically having everything you wanted but know it simply is a method to reduce attention span.

Too much consumerism
