A GREAT show, I'm very familiar with Pokémon and there were enough inside jokes to make it funny for me AND there was plenty for my friend who knew nothing about Pokémon and even wants to see it again.

Hilarious! Wish it ran longer (more dates) AND they bring it to Orange County.

The best thing i have seen this year outside of all nerd culture media being thrown at me. I will no doubt find a way to get back out to see it either by myself or with more people. Hopefully if you guys can find your way out here to Riverside,...continued

I first came in thinking I used to play and watch pokemon, now I can see the musical too! Triple Threat. After seeing the anime series, this musical show is better, later in my 29 years. The writer, Alex Syiek, and with the help of music by...continued

I went into this event thinking "Oh hey, I love Pokemon, and I also like musicals, so let's see what the two together could be like!". I did not have the highest of expectations, but did hope that by some strange chance, this union would be...continued

This show probably works best for young adults that grew up on Pokemon and older adults that have kids that grew up on Pokemon. My wife and I took our kids (daughter now 17 and son 19) and we had a blast.

My family loves Pokémon and has watched all of the movies over and over again for years. This show actually mirrored the first Pokémon cartoon show. It was a live version of that show to be honest. I don't recommend this show for kids under 10...continued

It was fantastic--great energy, very funny, not every joke was funnier if you were familiar with Pokemon but it did help.

Totally wow'd away by the casts' performance! It stook to the original Pokemon storyline with twists in the reasoning of their actions in the play. Perfect play for any adult Pokemon fan (not really for kids). The only problem with the play was...continued

Fun, energetic music and plenty of comedic bits that will make even a newbie of Pokemon laugh. Not to mention there are plenty of inside references to the video games and anime to satisfy veterans of Pokemon. I would watch this talented cast again!

This show fully exceeded my hopes and expectations! Roughly an hour and a half of non stop smiling and laughing as the actors successfully brought back that old Pokemon feel with a new comedic approach.

Fantastic show. Had so much fun. Clearly made by people who both love Pokemon, and have a wicked sense of humor. Also surprisingly sophisticated original music!

Funny and well done! Fun and entertaining for both my teenage son and myself. Reviews I read were helpful for finding well lit parking easily. Would definitely return to venue in future.

I went in, not knowing what to expect and preparing myself for the worst, but the Pokemusical team was very creative! They follow the basic storyline, but they have changed it up quite a bit. Ash's journey was hilarious and the cast was great at ...continued

This was the funniest thing I've seen on stage since Avenue Q. My husband, who loves Pokemon, was reluctant but was laughing hysterically one minute in. I'm being furloughed right now and he's laid off, and we'd like the cast and writers to know...continued

You do not need to know much about Pokemon to have a blast at this musical. It is so well-scripted, well-sung, and well-acted that you cannot stop laughing throughout the entire show. I loved the small venue, it felt more intimate, and it made me...continued
