Satoshi and Pikachu have arrived in Miare City of the illustrious Kalos region to capture more Pokemon and continue their journey towards becoming the very best. Meanwhile, a genius inventor named Citron and his little sister Eureka wander the city when they run into Satoshi who quickly challenges them to a battle. However, they are soon caught up in a dangerous incident when Team Rocket, following Satoshi into Kalos, cause a Gaburias to rampage through the city.

Far away in the quiet Asame Town, a young girl named Serena slogs through daily Sihorn riding practice at the behest of her mother, a professional Sihorn racer. After practice, she sees the events unfolding in Miare City on television where she recognizes a boy from her childhood. Having left a significant impact on her life, the sight of him stirs in her a desire to meet him again; and so, Serena sets off to Miare City, determined to find the boy from her past.

Pokemon XY follows the group as they travel throughout Kalos in pursuit of their ambitions—Satoshi challenging Pokemon gyms, Citron learning from Satoshi, and Serena searching for what exactly her dream is. Along the way, they meet new friends, face new rivals, and continue to thwart Team Rocket's schemes, all the while discovering a little about the mysteries of mega evolution.

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.

Pokémon the Series: XY&Z Review (CONTAINS SPOILERS)

It's not every day, I get to write a Pokemon review. It's always bittersweet, having a new generation of Pokemon come to an end. In the games department, X and Y was absolutely revolutionary for the Pokemon franchise. As for the anime, well... we just came off of the Black and White anime, which is widely considered to be the worst of the Pokemon anime. So X and Y had a lot of fixing to do? Does it succeed? Well, let's talk about that.

First off, I don't know how they keep doing it, but the Pokemon anime just keeps read more

Okay, OLM, you did better this time.
I'll give you that.

Ash is competent in battle again, well mostly.
You brought back contests, sort of.
His companions are useful and complimentary. I even see myself in Clemont.
My biggest issue though, it takes too much time for miss Serena to do anything and her calling isn't even in the games.
This generation in general has been strange to the max. Sure, we had representation of both Kalos and Hoenn Pokémon in the series, but NOT ONE that was obtained for the main team was from Hoenn. NOT ONE. You had the odd other regions which works mind you but were read more

Let's be honest here. After the mess that was Best Wishes, I didn't really want to watch the Pokemon anime anymore. That was until I saw the trailer for the 1hr Special for the first two Pokemon XY episodes. I was pretty surprised and eager to see how far this would have played out. And I wasn't disappointed!

First of: Story 6/10
Pokemon anime guys! Don't ever expect too much plot! But... I really was NOT expecting plot. While a little more romance than usual thanks to Serena, there is a plot for the XY series currently going on, with some of the key characters and read more
