Pokemon Sun and Moon is a delightful game on it’s own, but we find the anime even better. Set in the island region of Alola, this playfully animated TV series is a perfect summer pass time for you and your kids alike.

Believe it or not, we watched all of it and can’t wait for the next episode!

Featuring a metric ton of memorable characters, Alolan forms of Generation I Pokemon and a hilarious Team Skull as a mini villain, the Sun and Moon anime must be one of the best Pokemon anime in years.

The core formula is still the same, don’t expect a complete plot twist: Ash still travels, collects Pokemon and fights to become the best he ever was.

However, what sets Sun and Moon from the rest of the entries is it’s animation quality, strong emphasis on island life and summer season.

Characters like professor Kukui and especially the ever-boasting Rotom-dex, create a light atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all generations.

If you played the Sun and Moon games, you are probably aware of the overarching story, featuring Ultra Beasts, Solgaleo and Lunala. That story is engaging and dangerous at the same time, featuring several uniquely designed Pokemon and plot twists.

In other words, we’re in for some good time later this year.

Pokemon the Series: Sun & Moon is available on Pokemon TV (English dub, up to episode 14) and on Disney XD.
