“I wanna be the very best, like no one ever does.”
You know the opening of the song, don’t lie. If you’re a ’90s/’00s kid, we all grew up with Pokemon, whether that be through the trading cards, the games, or (in my case) the anime series. While I have been exploring the Pokemon games as I’ve gotten older and exposed to the whole culture, there was one part of it I always loved as a child, and that was the TV series. While 2021 TV releases are always fun to look forward to, sometimes, I like a blast from the past.
But Pokemon is great in so many ways, one of which being that they constantly update their regions, characters, stories, and new Pokemon with each new series that the game takes on, revolving around the corresponding game release. But, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t at all very different from each other. So here, we are going to rank all of the Pokemon anime series, from the very beginning to the present.
