101 secrets from a Pokémon master : an unofficial guide for Pokémon Go players101 secrets from a Pokémon master : an unofficial guide for Pokémon Go players, Justin Ryan

This book is about a game called Pokémon Go™. It has some tips on how to play the game.

I liked it when they explained how to evolve a Pokémon and then battle with it. I also liked it when they explained how to catch a Pokémon by doing a curveball. I did not like it when they accidentally switched a Pokémon’s name around. I recommend this book to people who like Pokémon and want to learn more about Pokémon Go™. I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.

It will make sparks shoot out of the Pokéball and it will give more power to the pokémon . I recommend this book to people who are just learning how to play Pokémon Go™.

Kids’ Club Review by Aadarsh: Pokémon ultimate guide.

Pokémon ultimate guide.Pokémon ultimate guide.,

This book is about all of the pokémon movies. It has all of the information and storyline of every movie.

I like Clemont because he has got very cool contraptions he builds himself. My favourite movie is Hoopa and the clash of ages. This story is about a little innocent pokémon called Hoopa who turns into its evil form when a bottle called the prison bottle is opened. The person who opens the prison bottle gets engulfed by an evil spirit. I recommend this book to people who haven’t seen the pokémon movies and would love to see them. I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.
