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

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 pearl...as 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 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

Right, to start off with, im 18, i think thats a pretty huge clue as to why i rated this anime so low, as a child pokemon was the best thing on TV, probably because when your 7, you dont really watch something and question each characters intergrity, like how ash has so many good pokemon in his PC yet he continually chooses to shun them in a box and start again from scratch, i mean come on, as a fellow pokemon player it really pisses me off watching someone continually losing to emotionally unstable emos as he tries to make his way to the read more

Anime: Medarot
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.

Anime: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters
In both anime, there is a young protagonist who sets up to become the best at his field: Yugi tries to become the best duelist, while Ash tries to become the best Pokemon trainer. Also, in both anime, the main character engages in duels with other characters using their monsters: in Yu-Gi-Oh!, the monsters are summoned through cards, while in Pokemon, the monsters are summoned through Poke Balls. Both anime show the adventures of these characters as they make new friends, but also new rivals.
