Review: Pokémon Horizons is the reinvention the Pokémon anime desperately needed

After 20 years with Ash and Pikachu, Pokémon Horizons was going to have to be something special, and we think it is. The four episodes we watched established a great new cast of characters and launched an intriguing mystery, but at the same time didn't isolate old fans, or hold back on the easter eggs and cameos from old friends. It's missing an iconic opening song, but other than that, Pokemon Horizons is off to a great start.

  • Liko and Roy are instantly likeable
  • Leap in animation quality
  • New mysteries are all established
  • Old structure is gone
  • Opening title song isn't memorable
