How to Watch the Pokemon Series? Easy Watch Order Guide

Pokémon, a world brimming with new adventures, creatures, and characters, was one of the most memorable parts of our childhood.

It had characters we could relate to, characters we wanted to be like, and the best comedic villain trio, i.e., Team Rocket.

From guessing which Pokémon was during the advertisement intervals, role-playing, and capturing imaginary Pokémon, the series gave us many nostalgia-inducing elements.

At some point in our lives, though, most of us stopped watching Pokémon and moved on to other series that seemed more interesting.

Nonetheless, we sometimes feel like taking a trip down memory lane, and when we do that, a big hurdle seems to block the way.

A hurdle of more than 1000 episodes long, that is. However, Pokémon never really stopped even after we stopped watching it.

7. About Pokémon

Pokémon was first released in 1996 and is set up in a world where humans catch monsters and store them in pocket-sized poke-balls.

They are creatures with an affinity to certain elements and some superhuman abilities related to that element.

Revolving around a teenage boy Ash Ketchum, Pokémon takes us through his journey to becoming the most accomplished Pokémon trainer the world has ever seen.
