I'm going to start off my review by stating that I will treat Pokemon D&P as a full flege anime and negate from the games and other chilhood influences. At this point it should be noted that Pokemon D&P is apart of the long running Pokemon FRANCHISE. A franchise that has a basic formula. That formula is aimed towards kids so there will be a lot childlike situations and themes. It just so happens that that formula continues to be reused time after time again. Its old to a lot of veteran viewers but new to the younger and newer generations. However, despite D&P being read more

Let's talk about art first. I watched pokemon from the first episode when it came out all those years ago. Compared to the art back then, DP (diamond and im sure you know) is amazing. I remember one episode where the screen just flashed red and blue for about ten minutes and pikachu's thunderbolt was just two dull yellow zigzags...i think it was the seizure one in the first few seasons; but now it's improved so much in so many areas, too many infact, so i'm not going to list them all.

I don't really think I should comment on sound since I watched the read more

I'm not very good at writing professional looking reviews. But I like this season because this is the season that made me get into Pokemon again. When I was very young. I like many kids watched Pokemon. But over the years, I didn't watch it anymore. At age 21 or 22, I decided to look up Pokemon online. One of the 1st eps I watched was from Diamond & Pearl. I did get confused cause I saw Dawn. And I knew that I missed alot. So I started from ep 1 of the Pokemon series. And watched every show and movie. And ever since Ive read more

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Another continuation of the Pokémon franchise, but, believe me, don't get your hopes up - if you haven't tried to watch it already. Let's face it: THe Pokémon anime isn't great. It's not good. It's bad. D&P has its improvements over its predecessors, sure, but it's still worse.

So, if yo usat a group of people inside a clsoed room, with monitoers covering the walls, showing nostop pokémon, what would the result be? Eyes clawed out? Ears bit off? Or maybe everyone would believe that if they just went on a journey by foot, every day they would meet a new read more

Pokemon and Medabots are shounen anime and they pretty much alike. Both anime's are about a boy, who lives alone with his mother, that gets a pokemon/medabot as their partner. They become friends and battle a lot with other people. They wanna become one of the best and to do so they participate into competitions. Both series also got some "bad guys" and they are complete idiots, they always lose in the end. 
Similar to Pokemon but the stories are a little less repetitive and gets slightly darker than Pokemon as the seasons go on.Both shows are about kids that find friendly powerful creatures and go on an adventure with them.Though with digimon the monsters are digital creations instead of real lifeforms and unlike most pokemon digimon can talk.Nonetheless both are great children's shows about friendship between kids and creatures.  
both have anthropomorphic characters.each charater has some type of ability or strength that will be sure to knock out their opponent.
