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.

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 a new 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

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

It almost pains me to put it this way, but Pokemon as of now can be summed up in one word. "Repetitive". Now this review isn't going to be unbiased, but a review by a Pokemon fan since the age of 6.

Story - Yet again, we follow Ash, Pikachu, and his painfully generic cast around yet another region. The story of Pokemon happens to be a story where if you've seen one season, you've seen them all.

Animation - This happens to be the only strong suit of Pokemon. The production values of this anime is some of the best. The new 3D effects work great read more

After I´ve seen the Diamond & Pearl season, I thought about giving Best Wishes a chance. I didn´t expect much and I wasn´t disappointed. After 15 episodes I can say: This season is poorly made!
For the beginning, the opening: What have they done? The usually good or even great music with their catching lyrics are gone and what is left is a 0815 sound plus voice. The idea of making the pokemon 3D was good but the realization could have been better.
The art: My guess is that the producers were only interested in making the attack more eye- catching and flashy. Much to the regret read more
