First of all, I'm been watching this show since the first season that began in 1998 when it first aired on TV (the English version). I'm watching in Japanese from near the end of the Diamond and Pearl to now.
After I had completed this show, I'm starting to lose interest because its not the same feeling as I usually do when I watch the original to the Diamond and Pearl but I still try to watch X and Y since I saw the trailer and it looks cool with the new animations
Story - 6
The story is the usual common story-line, Ash
and his two friends, Iris, and Dent, goes on on a boat adventure for most of the time and seeing the characters from previous seasons like Professor Oak and Clair. During the 2nd half of the show, a character from the Kalos region arrives and the story continues there. Even though, the Decolora adventure is giving hints for the X and Y series that is coming next month; however, the episodes feels lacking and a bit predictable for most of the time.
Art - 7
The art is the same as it usual is in the black and white series. Overall, its nice and simple with a bit of 3D animation and its not bad for a long anime show.
Sound - 7
The sound is good as it always is in this show, even the music is good. Even though it does get repetitive by just listening to the soundtrack. The sound of the pokemon and their moves is usual as always. The voice actors did a great job with the roles.
Character - 7
Well, he's still the same as always since the beginning of his first journey. Not much with his character development, just traveling with his friends and Team Rocket getting in the way for the entire boat adventure and now Kalos too.
For the rest of his friends
Not so much character development for Iris and Dent.
Enjoyment - 6
Well, not as enjoyable like the previous seasons since the plot is getting a bit boring and uninteresting since this series is to make more time for the X and Y series. It can't be helped, either they can rerun a few of previous episodes which they never did or make new episodes that drag out till the next season starts since it is for the kids who are starting to watch this show.
This show has continued for a while and the creators are starting to run out of ideas. Hope the next season will be better than black and white since its not interesting as the diamond and pearl series. Also this series is common with going on a journey, getting badges, meeting new people and battling just like the games.
Overall - 6/7
For the Decolora adventure, it is recommend for people who likes Pokemon and can handle the sort of same events in every episode since the beginning of this show. This is not the last season maybe the next one will be the last one because of lack of plot and ideas of black and white series. Ash is still the same age as he always been except for the one episode in the first season with the journey for a year. Well, hope this review is ok, since I'll probably go on a rant if I continue.
Over the years, Ash Ketchum (Satoshi) has traveled to many different regions in the Pokemon world. Each new region brings a new generation of Pokemon with it and the anime features Ash and his pal Pikachu catching a new team of Pokemon with each new adventure.
Pokemon has always featured Satoshi (Ash) challenging Gyms to win badges and enter the Pokemon League. But Gym battles are not the only path open to a Pokemon trainer. Aspiring, young trainers can also work hard to win Showcases, Contests, and a number of other events with their Pokemon partners.
