Critic Reviews for Pokémon: Indigo League: Season 1

All Critics (4)

Pokémon may not be high artistry (because, you know, it's for children), but the show's pervasiveness is a testament to the power of nostalgia.

Despite the many negative associations with the kiddie fanbase, the show had clever writing and a golden marketing formula designed to spread Nintendo's Pokémon videogames into new, lucrative territory.

March 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite the endless fantasy violence, Pokémon attempts to promote messages about choosing the right path in life and resolving differences peacefully--before the fighting starts.

March 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ultimately, the show's story is boring, repetitive, and formulaic. The show constantly preaches about friendship and helping others.
