Report is benign. It's just a move tag since this belongs in the anime section. My problem with Pokemon is that the titular creatures, apart from Meowth and Mewtwo, only communicate by repeating their names. That grows too wearisome to watch even if the rest of the anime is relatively fun and pleasant.

Watched it waaaay back. Haven't seen any of the new adaptations, but grew up with the first gen. Never revisited it, but thinking back about it is pretty awesome. Had some good memories of that show.

I thought so to, the anime was on his highest point in the first 4 seasons i think. But the newest seasons are just bad, bad, bad.

I wouldn't call it the best (there are a lot of better shows) but I used to watch the original series on TV a long, long, long time ago.

it began airing in north america when i was 8 so since i was 8. if i was to recommend something better i guess i would stick with the child befriends monster genre and say Digimon. i've always been more into Digimon. sure the pokemon games are amazing, and that season one opener will forever play in my head, but i liked digimons story and characters more. as an adult it's hard to listen to the english dub of the first season, or stomach most of season 2, but season 3 will always beat pokemon in my book.

i started watching during elementary school. And you dare me to recommend a better anime? Well....here goes. Try watching literally anything else and you will get a better anime than Pokemon. Pokemon is so basic tier. I mean most of the show is even about them actually battling and there isn't a chance in hell that ash will ever become a Pokemon master

Pokemon came out a year after I was born but the first time I remember watching it I was maybe 5? maybe earlier? I probably watched it before then but was too young to remember.
