< User:FinnishPokéFan92

Suede's Pokémon Journey is an ongoing YouTube review series of the Pokémon anime by the anime reviewer known as Suede (real name William DuFresne) from New Zealand, started in August 2016 in celebration of Pokémon's 20th anniversary. Its original objective was to review one episode per week for a year from the first season of the anime, which it succeeded in, but has also continued well past that point. This is a list all the episode reviewed by Suede so far and the ratings he has given to them.

At the end of each review, Suede credits Bulbapedia and Dogasu's Backpack as his main sources of information.

Rating system

From Pokémon - I Choose You! to Make Room for Gloom (including Holiday Hi-Jynx, Snow Way Out!, and the Pokémon Origins episodes), Suede rated the episodes with a grade ranging from A to F, with pluses or minuses added when necessary. From Lights, Camera, Quack-tion onwards, he has adopted a new rating system, mostly based on different kinds of Poké Balls. Older ratings were subsequently converted to match this new rating system.

Pokémon Origins reviews

These episodes were reviewed as bonus reviews for the transitional period between the first two US seasons. As they aren't part of the main series, their raitings have never been officially converted into Poké Balls by Suede.
