Fantasy Novel

Notes A.k.a. "Pocket Monsters"

Classification -
Synopsis The hugely popular series with game and merchandising tie-ins. The young heroes are collecting "pocket monsters" and using them in tournaments. There are some other young characters as comic baddies.
Review I lost the review I originally wrote. Briefly, if you are a young person into the game and collecting you will doubtless have seen some of the series already. If not, avoid.
I recollect that its plotting and pace reminded me dismally of American animated cartoons. The character designs have a spiky pared-down look.
