My post Pokemon Anime Essential Watch List is one of my most popular posts ever on this blog, and I’ve had a couple of requests for non-spoiler versions of the post, so I decided to go ahead and do that!
Kanto (Indigo) League
Indigo League is one of the best series for filler episodes and one of the most easily accessible series, being on Netflix, so even if you’re going for a faster watch schedule, I would recommend watching all of this series, as most of the iconic Pokemon and Pokemon anime references/jokes come from here.
