Pokemon All-Stars is a ten-disc DVD set that was released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Pokemon. Each DVD features a Pokemon character, and the disc is supposed to include episodes that feature the Pokemon on the box. On a couple of the discs, I wondered why an episode was included for a particular Pokemon. One of the biggest examples of this was the inclusion of "Fit to be Tide" on the Squirtle disc. While Ash may have used Squirtle for part of the gym battle, the episode actually focuses a lot more on Lampras (and would have been more appropriate for a Lampras disc if one had been made).
The ten Pokemon featured in the set are: Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Squirtle, Blastoise, Eevee, Bulbasaur, Lugia, Charmander, and Mudkip. The ten Pokemon that ended up being featured in the set were voted on by Pokemon fans.
Each disc only contains three episodes. There are absolutely no special features. This is a decent box set for someone wanting to acquire some episodes of the series in a relatively inexpensive manner. However, for die-hard fans who want to acquire all of the episodes in the series are probably better off acquiring the DVD boxes of each season as they are released.
