Synopsis

As with both the Advanced Generation and Diamond & Pearl series before it, the Best Wishes! series begins with only Ash Ketchum, headed off to the Unova region, located far away from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh, with his Pikachu. After he meets up with the new trainer and rival Trip and the region's Professor Juniper, he gains traveling companions in Iris, a girl from a town known for its Dragon Pokémon, and Cilan, Pokémon Connoisseur and the Grass Pokémon specialist of the three Straition City Gym Leaders.

No hard feelings anyone, I've been a pokemon fan for a long time. I've stuck with Pokemon through the first season- until Diamond and Pearl.I've got games and cards, posters and collectibles. I've loved Misty and May was okay- but Dawn? I wished she'd just go and vanish somewhere.
I've loved the first pokemon series when there was just Ash, Misty and Brock. In my opinion, Pokemon should've ended on Diamond and Pearl.

Pokemon is one of the worldwide BEST kid cartoon shows, yes for kids. But many teens still watch it, I'm not saying you shouldn't or anything- but Best read more

I'm a long time fan of the Pokémon franchise, both anime and video game, but this season of Pokémon really took a turn for the worst.

It follows the typical story of Ash Ketchum, but this time there is just about no returning character except for Ash himself and Pikachu. I really liked the character Brock, but sadly he was replaced by an annoying companion, Cilan. I'm assuming Cilan is supposed to be the exact same as Brock, as he is the first gym leader in Unova. The other companion is as always, a female companion, and her name is Iris. Despite me finding it read more

Recommendations

In both series the main characters have very similar personalities. Both series there is a kid aiming for the top in Pokemon defeating the pokemon league and in Hikaru no Go trying to become the best Go player.
We all know Pokémon and Digimon, right? They are both very great shows, which a lot of people enjoyed in their childhood. Now both of them are back, with new seasons which debuted in 2010. New characters, new designs and a new storyline. If you're new to one of the series, then I would recommend the other one. You don't have to watch the first seasons to keep up with the storyline. Digimon and Pokémon both envolve children with monsters who are battling.
