    I think this order is correct and I thank you for making one. My sister and I are watching Pokemon all the way through. though the list is missing Pokemon: The Power of Us and Pokemon: Secrets of the Jungle. It’s kinda hard to know where those fit in.

    1. Thanks! The Power of Us and Secrets of the Jungle are movies so I didn’t include them in here. I can make a list of pokemon movies in order if you want.

  2. I appreciate it thank you for making the orders. Now I can see it correctly also, thanks for the filler list. Also, thank you for very less ads on the website.

    1. We’re glad that you’re enjoying visiting our website. Thank you so much 🙂
