Synopsis

Pokémon Chronicles is a TV series comprised of the English-dubbed versions of a number of Pokémon TV specials. Many of the episodes are from the Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station show in Japan, but it also contained The Legend of Thunder! and shorts from the Pikachu's Winter Vacation series. The series, in each episode, basically focuses on the lives of the many of the recurring/main characters Ash Ketchum met on his journey, like Sakura, Misty, her sisters, Casey, and Tracey. Ash only makes two appearances in the series in brief cameos.

“Old friends! New adventures! Never-before-seen stories from the world of Pokémon!”

I honestly don't know what to think of Pokémon Chronicles. It's a great idea to have side-stories on secondary characters that we don't get in the main series, and it would've been nice if they had kept this going in later seasons. However, what was good about the series tended to be overshadowed a bit by the bad, and that nearly ruins Chronicles for me. Maybe it's because I expected a little more out of it because it wasn't part of the main series, but the thing about Pokémon as a whole is it's not read more

Ok the enjoyment score is high, I'm a pokemon nut and I'm not ashamed. If you're reading a review for chronicles then you probably know what pokemon is and have a good idea about whether or not you'll like it. But here's the clincher; an entire series of pokemon with no ash/satoshi whatsoever! I know, great right? anyway that's why this series earns a respectable seven.

This show is amazing D:
I wish they would have carried it on.
I bought this by mistake, because I thought it was the box set of the first series or something like that. I was disapointed to start with, but I grew to love it. The two best episodes (We're not heroes and Training Daze) focus on Team Rocket, away from Ash.
What's great is you get to see the backstory to everything in the main anime. In Training Daze, it's the story of how James/Meowth/Jessie met at Rocket HQ. James is hilarious in it.

We're not heroes! shows a completely different side to them, and it's read more

Pokemon is more or less the same with Ash doing the same thing over and over again, getting 8 gym badges and losing the pokemon league just to do the same thing in every new region. I can't complain too much because really Pokemon is just to show what your favorite pokemon does in the wild. But this show is something I really like, it shows what the more memorable characters like Misty who left after Johto, Richie and a few new faces. I guess maybe it was that it was the same Pokemon formula just in a different setting and maybe if was just read more
