Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.
What on earth is Pokemon doing in 15th place?! Pokemon has had something to capture generation after generation. Pokemon should be coming first! When I came to look at this site, I could have bet my life that Pokemon would be first. I believe this happened due to the fact that the people who enjoyed the earlier generations of became haters of the newer generations of Pokemon. Its because they feel as if they are being left behind by Pokemon; I know this because I was one of them. Despite this, I still agree that Pokemon should be up there!
I've watched around 300 episodes of Pokemon. After a while a found myself getting bored with the story line. Collecting badges happens quite slowly. Most episodes have basically the same story: fellowship helps someone out, ash improves and learns thing along the way. Team rocket tries to steal pikachu or steal something else, they fail. end of episode. I enjoyed watching the first league ash participated in, I felt after that they could have stopped producing the Pokemon series. But maybe I've just outgrown Pokemon.
As far as I know it's the most well known anime in Sweden, at least in my generation and if it is still going strong I think it should be higher ranked. I know about all of the above mentioned but I'm certain that the average Swede does not, not like Pokemon. Big applause for Pokemon!
It's so good a show yeah very good my friend. I love so very much. It so better then DBZ. Why it in 12 place it better then 0 place. The best show ever in hole world.
The series that got me into anime in the first place.
Quality wise, it may not be as good as most others out there but on an international level it has been the most consistently popular one. I mean, one movie a year with Ash and Pikachu still as the main characters in tandem with the fact that each new game release they have has different protagonists.
It's my childhood. - zachhontiverospagkalinawan
Pokemon. It's the best show, like, EVER. The only thing that could make this even more awesome: MISTY! TELL ASH HOW YOU REALLY FEEL!
Pokemon should have like 50% of the votes! In the late 90s Pokemon was top notch and I mean it! Ash and Charizard for the win! It does bring back memories
I'm in my mid-twenties and still think the friendships and adventures of Ash Ketchum should be observed by all. Pokemon took McDonald's by storm with those collections of pokeballs and each time a new game is released. Granted, I'm fond of the original 151, but there are a few new favorite Pokemon too. I suppose the show was predictable during the first season because you knew each episode would end with "TEAM ROCKET'S BLASTING OFF AGAIN! " and a pokerap, but it's like eating your favorite food everyday--you still like it every time you take a bite.
Pokemon is the best anime of all time. Look how long it has been running and now rebooted, and the games are the top selling anime games by a landslide. Not so great for older people but as a kid this was the number one T.V. show
Pokemon IS THE BEST SHOW EVER! WHY IS IT NUMBER TWELVE!?! IT DESERVES TO BE NUMBER ONE!
Besides, who doesn't love to watch a show were strange creatures fight and whatnot?
My childhood memories involve Pokemon because they were only thing really good in my bad life. Love them forever and I wish that in realty friendships exist like in Pokemon.
It is the best franchise in the world it has done over five hundred Pokemon and loads of games
The original series featuring Ash, Misty and Brock were great, the stuff of my childhood. From the first episode right up until the end of the Orange Islands were really enjoyable. That being said, the seasons in Johto, Hoenn and I'm towards the start of Sinnoh now, seem to be mostly filler-like episodes excluding pokemon catching/evolving episodes, move learning episodes and important battle/contest episodes. Aside from that it seems to me like they meet a random person with a pokemon they haven't seen much and they never see said person again. I hear that the newer seasons are really good and I'm excited to see if they improve upon the middle seasons. - jacko_coates
Pokemon is the best. It taught us so much about the harmony we need between us and nature. The concept is so intriguing and appeals to all people, it deserves a spot in the top ten
Whoever did not place Pokemon on top is crazy! I have grown up watching this anime and trust me it is the BEST anime EVER! Hope that it gradually becomes the top anime. Simply AWESOME. Please vote for it.
Pokemon has more than 816 episodes and 16 movies. It is 10 times better than one piece and Naruto. Plus Pokemon is very educative and successful. Love Pokemon
Pokemon is the most consistent anime all over the world. It teaches a lot about friendship. I grew up watching Pokemon. Nothing can be compared to it. It doesn't only have battling all the time we can even see adventures enjoyment and a lot more. So I think it should be on top
Pokemon has maximum number of legends than any other anime. It suits those who wanted to go about many mysteries and explore many many things.
I mean come on! No one that has ever been a Pokemon fan can't forget when misty kissed ash! Not only that but it is full of battle's, emotions, &action! Who can't agree with that?
Pokemon is a anime unique in comparison to any other it entices every generation of children that watches it and it stays with them forever! Not many other anime do this and for this reason it is the greatest anime of all time or at least 2 or 3
Pokemon is my life, Pokemon is the best anime ever. Its really shameful its at 17th place here, please vote for Pokemon
Best anime ever. It will age like wine STILL favorite of many children and even youth. beautiful more than 800 episodes,15 movies and really full of everything that is enough to rejoice anyone.
Really people really? This was before on 15 now its 21... Come one people if you hate the new anime then watch the old Watch the kanto johto and hoenn seasons they are good Besides Pokemon is an RPG who doesn't like rpg?
The best anime I have ever seen. it has each and every ingredient that an anime should actually have. I love the creativity they put up with each and every time.
People think Pokemon is lame just because is a kids show, but anyone can watch it. Also people always say Ash is stupid but he has actually come a long way. Just look at the xy anime; he's smarter and has strong Pokemon. His Pikachu defeated two legendary Pokemon and he is the only non mega evolved Pokemon to defeat a mega evolved Pokemon. He lost to a snivy only because he couldn't use his full potencial. Anyway, the anime may not have a plot as good as One Piece but it has awesome fights and good movies.
