Pokemon XY is the worst series in the whole Pokemon anime. Its nothing like the classic anime. Its very poorly made, and has VERY annoying characters. Im a huge fan of the pokemon series, but this is horrible compared to the other series in the anime.

Story line4/10-THERE ARE NO SPOILERS. Once again, Ash is ready for a new adventure in the Kalos region. He once again collects gym badges, working to become the best trainer. Its the say as any other pokemon series. Its somewhat enjoyable. I mean, its easy to fall in love with the story line, and its not the worst, but its read more

As a viewer of the Pokémon series from when they started, I would say that I enjoyed it as much as I did 14 years ago. As an old Pokémon fan I am I bought Pokémon X on release date and have enjoyed every second of it. Now the anime started, I saw a lot of elements coming alive from the game.
As I saw the trailer of the anime, I didn't expect much of it. I found that Satoshi or Ash changed his looks way to much. It looked like the characters came from a pot of gold on the end of a rainbow. read more

Another review from me, even though, does contain minor spoilers regard Ash and the new friends that he makes in this series.

Pokemon XY have exceeded my expectations when someone persuades me to watch this series after I did a review on how bad Decolora Adventure was due to content within the episodes.

Story - 8

The beginning of Ash's (Satoshi) new adventure starts when he arrives at Lumiose City since he continues his dream to be a Pokemon Master throughout the regions he explores with old/new friends he makes along the way. First, he meets the gym leader, Clemont (Citron) and his little sister, Bonnie (Eureka); read more

**Updated 1/11/15 with all episodes seen. **

Pokemon XY turned out to be a really worthy entry for Pokemon fans, old or new to sit down, relax and enjoy.

STORY: 5/10 Mediocre

Don't expect much story from Pokemon, for it is still a show that is primarily directed towards kids. You will still see the power of friendship, teamwork, trust and love swirling around every episode, so the basic formula did not change from the old Pokemon series.

In Pokemon XY we follow Ash in his endeavor to beat all eight gyms to challenge the Kalos league, Serena in her conquest to obtain three princess keys by read more

Anime: PriPara
The stupid main character and his/her slightly-less-stupid friends go on many crazy adventures. Both involve talking animals. They are both funny, colorful, and very enjoyable! 
reportRecommended by The39Clues
Anime: One Piece
Both main characters have the same goal: become the best of their worlds. While in Pokemon they travel in the lands, challenging people and dealing with the bad guys, in One Piece they travel in the sea, dealing with the bad guys and the ones that should be considered the "good guys". Both animes are slow, but will give you a weekly dose of entertainment

Anime: Youkai Watch
"Gotta get/collect them all" theme and "monster of the week" themes.

However it should be noted that monster battles are more action-packed and intense in Pokemon, while Monster summons in Youkai watch have less action and usually depend more on the Youkai's special abilities (e.g. possession).
