The journey of Satoshi and his friends through the Kalos region continues! After Satoshi obtains his seventh gym badge, the group is moving toward the next town when Eureka discovers a mysterious Pokémon resting in her pochette. Soon given the name Puni-chan, it is one that even Satoshi and Serena's new Pokémon Zukan cannot identify. However, it quickly becomes apparent that Puni-chan is the target of a mysterious group clad in bright red suits known as Team Flare, aiming to capture the new Pokémon to further their agenda. But when Satoshi and the gang realize that the enigmatic organization has no intention of treating Puni-chan with any decency, they take a stand in opposition to Team Flare's plans, daring to fight back.

With Gojika's predictions looming above them, Satoshi aims for his final gym badge while Serena contests for her last Princess Key in order to be able to compete at the TriPokalon Master Class. But as Team Flare begins to move in search of the mysterious Z, the stories of Pokemon XY and Pokemon XY: Mega Evolution cross paths as Satoshi and his friends, along with Team Rocket, get caught up in a scheme that could put Kalos in great danger.

Pokemon 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 ...

ok so as we all know, serena and amour saved this show big time after nightmare that was the kalos league.
yea, ash greninja was cool. to bad his arc went nowhere.
alain. just.... why man, why.
yajima, if it wasnt for amour i would have ranked it 1/10 alain didnt even WANT to take part in the kalos league. talk about a dumb decision from the writers, making ash lose to the same guy 3 times. im so happy leon trashed him in the masters tournament.
good: serena, amour, greninja, creative ash, the kiss
bad: alain, kalos league was WAY to rushed (second episode ...

Pokemon xyz 4/10
This saga became one of the most overvalued of all the Pokemon anime.
Animation and music are good: (7/10)
But the story is the same as always: (1/10)

1._Ash reunites medals and returns to fight in the league.
2._the league, lose it again as always.
3._El evil team did not last 5 or 10 chapters and all sorted CRYING (much melodrama for an anime that promotes the game and in the end everything returns to normal).

Some techniques that were never seen in pokemon, were taken from other anime, for example naruto, such as shuriken or water pulse.
