This may have already been metioned, but how come the UK isn't showning the new episodes. It keeps going back to Larvitars Mother episodes in Jhoto.

26th September 2004, 4:47 PM
The episodes will begin for a week on October the 23rd at 7:30am every morning. They will then resume their normal slot of being shown on Sunday at 7:30am and then being repeated the next Saturday.

The 23rd is a half term for people in school.

Us UK fans just have to be patient.

They new episodes are starting in the October half-term, one new episode per day. I think it's stupid that we have to wait until then! I can't wait!!

I'd much prefer the American system, whereby they air a brand new episode each week. The Sky One schedule system's crap, what's the point in airing 9 episodes in a row and then show pratically nothing for another 3 months. Don't they understand that people will lose interest in the anime if it isn't shown consistantly? If I remember correctly, that's exactly how I lost interest in Pokemon the last time, when they aired a load of Orange Island episodes up until Charizard Chills, then decided not to show another new one for ages. Snore........

No they are showing a weeks worth of episodes at half-term and then continuing with them on Sundays.

Woohoo Rising Trainer!

Yeah, I agree. I was fed up of waiting for that next episode to begin, and it never did for ages.

I should imagine they will show the series first, and then repeat it, and repeat it again, and probably repeat it again!, so I guess you'll just have to wait and keep up to date with an episode guide.

May as well face the fact. Sky One suck. They take too long with showing any shows. Its the same with Yugioh. They show all the new ones and then repeat them again. THen repeat those again and then show the new ones. A year after the US.
Its rediculous.

2nd October 2004, 10:22 PM
Uh why do you think that? Since it's dubbed in America, one would imagine that America should see it first before any other country. Anyway as someone was saying up there, we'll be equal by the time the nine episodes are played out here. The only problem I have is that all the discussion threads about the new episodes are pratically dead by the time we see them.

I live in America, but I think Sky One will start showing them eventually. They have to. I don't think it's fair that the US and UK are always competing. Both KidsWb and Sky One should try and show they're episodes at the same time, so there would be no fuss.

You could use the same arguement with Harry Potter though. It was created and printed here first, so we should get it a few days before you (we get it afew hours ahead due to the time difference).

Just incase anyone's interested they've gone past "The Breeding Center Secret" for the first time on Toonami (i.e. today was Princess vs Princess), they're calling them "brand new" episodes would you believe! Should mean that we would be seeing the conclusion of the Kanto season at least. Just thought I'd say that since it is really our only alternative to Sky One.

ITV is also an alternative to Sky One, but they edit out so much that it hardly matters

I don't like it when they say they're brand new when they've been seen in this country before, I can tolerate ITV saying they're brand new, as they're new to terrestrial TV, but Toonami really shouldn't say they're brand new episodes.

Will Toonami keep going further or don't they have the rights to show too many episodes

Katsuya
4th October 2004, 5:44 PM
I think Toonami bought out Kanto & Orange Islands.

And what time is Pokemon on Toonami now? It got changed for "Megas XLR" and some Transformers crap if I remember.

4th October 2004, 6:08 PM
Sky one are very bad at keeping up on new episodes. When I thought I was going to watch 'What you Seed is What you Get!' on Sky, it turned out to be 'Address Unown'. Sky one should of aired it that day. Ah well, we'll have to wait more...

Sharpshooter
4th October 2004, 6:15 PM
The so called "new ones" are played at 4:30pm, it's also on at 6:30am, but it was "The Breeding Center Secret" that was aired at that time today (i.e. not Princess vs Princess like at 4:30pm today). That'd suggest that they're repeats of the day before lol.

I'm sure I've asked this before but when is it on ITV exactly? Last time I asked I got no reply.

I didn't matter that they were dubbed in America for the last series, we were still ahead then. But yes, it is extremely annoying that all the threads are basically finished.

5th October 2004, 10:11 PM
Gyaaaaah!

ITV is so rubbish but I'm forced to watch it as I have no Sky One

Point 1: They cut out the intro which is annoying as I have seen every intro (English and Jap) except the English Season 6. Oddly sometimes the Ep Name screen (with the map) is there, sometimes it isnt.
Point 2: They cut more stuff out! Especially TRs motto. In 'Gonna Rule the School' it went from the guy saying "the Pokeballs are gone" to TR taunting Pikachu as it tried to attack their Wurmple Mecha.
Point 3: The guy who presents up on the roof is so annoying! Especially the "previously on Pokemon!" thing he does after the ad break. Decapitate him Scizor! ;212;

Phew...rant over.
Back on topic I wouldn't actually mind seeing the Johto League on Sky One since I missed it the first time through.

Yeah the thing is they actually show them at normal times too, none of this 5 o'clock in the morning stuff.

I think Ash's battles with Blaine must be the BEST set of gym match's I've ever seen! The concept of battling over a volcano just heightens the intensity in itself don't you think?! Especially when Pikachu looked like it was actually going to fall into the pit!

Err....not of the whole season, but of the WHOLE bloody show!! I missed a lot of Johto gym matches so I might be wrong here, but I doubt there will ever be a gym match like that again. The battle with Sabrina would of been up there, but the whole "Haunter with a slick sense of humor" really buggered that up. When I was watching it today, I just realised how much the Hoenn region missed gym battles like that. For example, his battle with Watson, I mean urghhhhh......it just would be insulting to even think about comparing that with his battle against Blaine.......

So aren't they showing any Pokemon episodes on Sky One until the 23rd October then?
¬_¬ Great. I don't really understand what the program 'The Match' is. It seems to have four one hour slots in a row! Is it really that good?

Anyway, I think Sky One is OK to some extent, after all it is the only channel where we can watch the up to date Houen episodes after the US - so I guess we can't complain too much... but that's just MO, so please don't bash. But they do seem to have irregular time intervals. I guess they've put them to a halt coz they're going to show them all in the half term, but I guess if they had show them on every Sunday AND in the half term then we would be miles ahead of the US and then they would run out of dubbed ones to show us. I've got nothing aginst them showing the eppys in the US first, after all it is dubbed there and I guess they have a bit more authority over it since 4Kids is an American company.

But after the half term, we shouldn't be that far behind the US so I guess that's OK - and it might end up being like someone said where the US show it on a Saturday and we have it on a Sunday.

Katsuya
9th October 2004, 11:28 AM
There was a time when

- Sky One went ahead of US in Yu-Gi-Oh, 2 shows every weekend

- Nickeloden shot past both with 4 shows every weekend

Toonami has a big advantage. If they've signed the whole of the show, then we could see them finishing Orange Islands by end of the year, moving onto Johto, which would be finished April-ish. By then, US would've finished Hoenn, Sky One nearing the end. Toonami has a very small chance of beating Sky One to the end of Hoenn.

Face it, Toonami is a cheapass show. The one in the uk only can afford about 5 different cartoons, hence why so much dragonball rubbish is put on there(I mean it must at least be on there about 20 times a day!). Toonami's budget for pokemon episodes is limited, it seems like it took them ages to be able to get the end of the kanto season! Never mind Hoenn lol.

Are the Orange Islands in series 2 up to "Charizard Chills"?

I also love the Ash VS Blaine battle, the music is just awesome and it's an excellent battle.

Sky One really need to pull their finger out and get real! They aren't even putting Pokemon on this weekend!

I now watch the retro eps on Toonami I like where they are atnow (not the beginning!) I like it when it's further in the show.

Sharpshooter
10th October 2004, 1:07 AM
Maybe I'm wrong, but I have serious doubts that Toonami will go past season one. It didn't advertise anything past the indigo league tournament it during it's commercial for the episodes.

Why is Dragonball/Dragonball Z on there so much anyway?! I know it's fairly popular, but surely it's not that much more popular than Pokemon! We'd be in poke-heaven if they showed as many eps of pokemon as they do of Dragonball Z, I mean like one day it was played between something like 12:00-5:00am and then 9:00-1:00pm!! wtf's that all about?!!

At least they show episodes, the only problem is there timing is irregular. I don't mind them showing any pokemon season during the wait for the new episodes, preferably hoenn stuff so we don't lose too much interest in that particular region and because no one else shows it.

What I do dread is the fact that they're going to keep this cycle up of showing a set of new episodes every two/three months.

I agree, with Sharpshooter007, Toonami probably won't go past the first series. There may be a chance that they will get the second, but I severely doubt they will show Johto - that lasted for ages!

Looks like pokemon advanced challenge is appearing on 23rd of october as pitcher_ross correctly pointed out. Well assuming that the radiotimes (i.e one of the UK's leading TV guide's) is correct!

http://www.radiotimes.com/jsp/listings_search.jsp

Then type pokemon on the right hand box where it says "Search for a current TV programme by name". You get a list of the upcomming pokemon episodes on sky one/sky one mix (not including any other channels like toonami etc). I you look at the bottom, it says:

Sunday 23 October, 8:30am, Sky One:
Pokemon Advanced Challege (if you click on it says "What you seed is what you get"

Sunday 23 October, 10:00am, Sky One Mix:
Pokemon Advanced Challenge (Also "What you seed is what you get")

Sunday 24 October, 8:30am, Sky One:
Pokemon Advanced Challenge (wait for it........"Love at first flight" yes after all the dispute of being banned, we get to see it first time round lol)

Sunday 24 October, 10:00, Sky One Mix:
Pokemon Advanced Challenge (Love at first flight again)

Check every so often for more updates on whats coming up.

For some reason I don't seem to hate sky as much anymore. Just hope they stick to their word!

The site I used is:

www.mydigiguide.com

If you type in Pokémon (with the é (press 'Contol Alt E') ) it shows you all the channels which screen it in the UK

Indeed, 'What you Seed is What you get' is on Saturday the 23rd
'Love at First Flight' is on Sunday the 24th
'Let Bagons Be Bagons' is on Monday the 25th

All of these are on the sensible time of 8:30 too!

Pokémon Master Josh

Monday 25th: Let Bagons Be Bagons!
Tuesday 26th: The Princess And The Togepi!
Wednesday 27th: A Togepi Mirage!
Thursday 28th: Candid Camerupt!
Friday 29th: I Feel Skitty!
Saturday 30th: Zig Zag Zangoose!
Sunday 31st: Maxed Out!

YAY! Its at 8.30, that means I can watch it AFTER my paper round!

They rarely reply to emails I send them, but I guess as there was so much interest, they felt obliged to reply.

What I believe will happen (and I'm quite sure of this) is they will start the episodes on Saturday the 23rd of October. They will then continue at 8:30 each morning until the next Sunday (Not the 24th!), the 31st.

The episode which is shown on Sunday the 31st will then be repeated the next Saturday (the 6th). The next episode will then be shown on Sunday the 7th, and then repeated the following Saturday, and the new episode on the next Sunday (you probably get the cycle here!)

Furthermore, for the next couple of weeks, they are continuing to show the Indigo league and The Orange League at the ridiculous time of 5:10 and 5:35 am!

Sharpshooter

Watch out, make sure you check your listings carefully because the airing times are far more irregular than you think.

For example Let Bagoons be Bagoons gets repeated on monday the 25th at 11:40am on Sky One Mix (after being shown earlier that day at 8:30am on Sky One) and not at it's usual time of 10:00am. Also there are THREE pokemon episdoes of the regular kanto season on tuesday morning instead of two (starting at 4:45am and not 5:10am). And finally the repeat for "The Princess and the Togepi" on Sky one Mix is on at 11:30am this time and not 11:40am like said previously for Let Bagoons be Bagoons or even at 10:00am like the two previous episodes before that were!!

It seems that Sky don't care about Pokémon at all. They just slap it in anywhere when they feel like it, making way for what they would consider more important MORE IMPORTANT programmes such as Zoids and stuff.

Just thought people should take note of that anyway just incase people don't miss anything due to a crappy airing system.

Yes, that's correct, but only after Monday the 25th - no doubt to compliment the new series.

So can anyone work out where we will be in comparison to UK by the time the final episode of the half term is shown (the 31st of November) ?

If so, I think now(I haven't checked the American listings) but it looks like it's

So we'll be one day behind the Americans by the time our half term schedule has finished.

Speaking of Sky, does anyone know what happened to the pokémon movies? They never seem to get aired, I was checking the listing's again and there's no movies of Pokémon at all in upcoming months. Considering the amount of channels we get; Sky cinema one, sky cinema two, sky movies one, two.....nine (eleven standards ones I think) we should at least see ONE of them!

I was hoping to see pokémon the movie 2000 sometime, but knowing Sky it looks unlikely that I'll ever see that again unless I buy the god damn thing! Even any of the other 5 movies would be nice!

Well, I emailed Sky months ago about this, when they were showing the 'Land Before Time' films in the morning, as I wanted them to show the Pokémon movies instead.

They replied, and said that they didn't own the rights to the films.

Whether they have any intention of buying the rights is beyond me.

Well do you know does? No chance of Sky getting them now, they'll think the Pokémon fad's far long gone(even though there's enough people who'd still consider watching them!).

Channel 5 own the rights to the second movie, and they screened that a couple of months ago, but again, who knows if they'll show more?

Amazon and eBay are your best bets. See:

First of all I think you mean "comparison to US" correct?

If so, I think now(I haven't checked the American listings) but it looks like it's

I Feel Skitty! - 16th October
Zig Zag Zangoose! - 23rd October
Maxed out! - 30th October

So we'll be one day behind the Americans by the time our half term schedule has finished.

Sorry I got that wrong, I forgot that "Love at first flight" was shown today in the US, it means that the 3 I mentioned above will be shown a week later:

I Feel Skitty! - 23th October
Zig Zag Zangoose! - 30rd October
Maxed out! - 6th November

Meaning we will be able see "Maxed out!" 6 days before the Americans! There's a shock....

The last time I looked on the radio times website they said that on the 6th november, Sky One would be showing the repeat of "Maxed Out!" Now what Sky usually do is repeat the eposide we saw on sunday, onto the next saturday. So if My prediction stands correct we should be seeing Pros and Con artists on 7th of november (i.e. a brand new eposide that wasn't part of the original 9 episode Bonanza). If that were the case then it would mean a brand new episode EVERY sunday!

I need to someone to confirm it for me though because the format on the radio times websites changed, and I can't seem to get anything on pokémon!

I wont be seeing "Zig Zag Zangoose!" tomorrow, i'm off to a funeral(grandad died yesturday *cries*) Mind you I've never met him so I guess there's not too much emotional attachment involved.

14th November 7:30am - Sky One - Come What May!
14th November 7:30am - Sky Mix - Come What May!

Sky are being gay at the moment with their schedule's. The episodes they put on between 5:10-6:00am are being rushed by the looks of it. At moment, we're coming the end of Kanto, but I thought it was a bit odd that by the 16th of november, "Bye Bye Psyduck" is on, and considering that we're currently on "Bad To The Bone" it doesn't mathematically seem correct, but ah of course Sky are skipping episodes! For example on the 10th of november both "Pallet Party Panic!" and "A Scare in the Air" are on, then the day after, it's "The Lost Lapras" and "Fit to Be Tide". You'll notice there, that there's no "Pokéball Peril" and a few other episodes should be shown inbetween "The Lost Lapras" and "Fit to be Tide".

B*stards - I was hoping that I'd get the chance to the tape the Orange Island episodes, (since my old tape for it has been taped over, I last taped them over 4 years ago so it that was expected). Well I can't now cause the order of episodes are buggered up, and there's no point in tapping something with missing gym battles etc.

Right ok everyone, I'm sure you've read about the disscusion of the new 22 episodes not featuring Ash & co coming to America in late 2005. Most of us, including myself think it's the Hoso's that haven't been released outside Japan, rather than an all-American series, which would stink.

What does everyone think the chances are of these episodes coming to the UK via Sky One, or does anyone have any inside infomation of Sky One airing these episodes sometime in the future at all?

Most of the stuff that comes from KidsWB! air's here, I'd be bitterly disappointed if they weren't to be aired in the UK, especially if they were to be those suspected Hoso's....

pitcher_ross
13th November 2004, 8:53 AM
I hope so, the Hoso's look really good from the images I've seen. 22? I can only think of 14. If they are showing it at the same time as Series 8, where are they going to get the extra episodes from?

The 14 specials I think they might show are:

1. Raikou! Legend of Thunder
2. Brock! Save Pewter Gym
3. Revenge Match in the Cerulean gym
4. Tough Battle! Enter Team Rocket
5. Epic Battle at Oak's Lab
6. Misty! Get the Cascade Badge!
7. The Pichu Brothers
8. Pokémon Investigation! Search for Professor Oak!
9. Calling on Great Detective Meowth! Is Niece Azurill in Great Trouble?
10. The Seriousness of Misty's Match! Risking a Life?!
11. Team Rocket Special - The Origin of Love and Youth
12. Another Legend Of Celebi
13. Pallet Town, The Setting off of The Pokémon Trainer
14. Pokémon Researcher Gary and Aerodactyl!

There are indeed 3 specials announced so far in Series 8, but if Pokemon Chronicles is being shown alongside it, will they show it?

That still leaves 8 episodes free. While I really wish to see the specials, I personally dont believe they will be the specials. Seems a shame though, they have already created them, so all they need to do is translate them and re-dub them.

Sharpshooter
13th November 2004, 9:14 AM
Well first of all, there's 19 conifirmed Hoso's released in Japan, not 14! :P

Considering there's 22 anounced, I would of though KidsWB! in America would have had inside infomation into the fact that Japan might be creating 3 more Hoso's by the time it airs there (late 2005), hence maybe that's why they issued 22 episodes instead of 19.

That's how I'd look at it anyway.

Richie and Moltres!'. Also, isn't it a bit late to show the first one, 'Slowking's Day', and 'Mewtwo Returns' is too long. That leaves 14.

Really? According to the site I use, sky are screening very random episodes. Here's the lineup:

When the Orange League finishes on the 24th of November, with Charizard Chills, they are then screening just 1 episode on Firday the 25th, 'A Way Off Day Off' (series 2, episode 17) at 5:10

Monday the 29th: they are screening one episode at 4:45-5:10 'Bound for Trouble', (series 2 episode 28)

and thats it, they're not showing any more early morning episodes after that. I wonder why?

Actually going back on that, I wish they would go back and repeat the Kanto season, it's better having that than nothing! Means I have to rely on Toonami for Pokémon now. *sigh*

Your infomation's correct, I checked www.radiotimes.com and they are strangely screening random episodes in no particular order.

Hmm, it also looks like the Americans are also getting way ahead of us again, they're airing doubles as we keep airing singles. Means they're gonna get more repeats though so it works both ways I guess.

Hold on a minute. You missed an episode, emailed sky, and they sent you a video, free of charge, with the episode on it? I've never heard of this before, and it sounds a bit unlikely to be honest.

Infomation about the US and Japan scheduling system is a sticky thread on the animé section, at the top just above this one.

Someone should ask Dogasu if it's possible to allow that Sticky to be altered for UK scheduling times as well as US and Japan, since the UK and Ireland are probably the second most popular visitors after the Americans to visit this site.

Are you planning any special Christmas scheduling for Pokémon during the half term, or is it a bit too early to ask?!

"Dear Ross

I can confirm that the week beginning the 20th December there will be Pokemon episodes broadcast on Sky One.

Movies take AGES to come out in the UK, you remember when Pokémon: The Movie 2000 (that's 2000) came out in 2001? Six Months after it came out in America and almost a year after it came out Japan.

It's kinda odd, we get the episodes released around the same time as the Americans do, yet we're behind them for the movies? Strange. I remember for the for when Pokémon: The Movie came out here (watching it in the Odeon cinema's back in Ipswich) we were about 15 episodes into the Orange Islands saga, which meant regular viewers of the animé would relate to the movie looking somewhat out of date because Brock was in it.

I have the Destination Deoxy's movie downloaded in Japanese, yet to watch it cause of the all the exams I'm sitting this month, should be good though.

No "Disguise Da Limit!"? Typical, Sky usually play new episodes for a certain while, and then start back to the beginning again of that particular season. However when they start at the beginning they usually play the episodes once each day, and then by the time we get to Disguise Da Limit!, we'll more new episodes to follow on the days after, bit like what happened during half term last october. Not my preference now, I'd be much more happier if they were to play one new episode a week, instead of this disorganised scheduele.

Told ya, they just continue to play repeats until they get a set of new episodes, say about 10 or so, and then play them all at once, expect this to be the last until season 7 (or year 7 as they call it) is finished. Presumably this is to be scheduled deliberately for the Easter holidays, Sky really do think this is entirely a kids thing, so they'll advertise the hell out of it in order to compete against other networks during the "skools out" period.

Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokémon are neck and neck in terms of ratings in both the UK and US(infact Pokémon was on later in the morning that Yu-Gi-Oh, that would suggest Pokémon is popular as it's allowing people to get up later), so for Yu-Gi-Oh to have 2 hours on saturday must mean we'll have two hours on sunday.

No, I didn't have to pay. Go to mydigiguide.com, and in the top right hand corner choose the very bottom option (which should already be selected) of mydigiguide TV listings, and then type in Pokémon or Simpsons (any show on Sky One really, unless you want to find other channels), then click on the option 'Sky One' in the listing results.

Unfortunatley there's no episodes on Sky for the following week after (that being 19th and 20th of feburary).

Yu-Gi-Oh get's it's fair share and we don't. Gits.

The UK and Australia are both not getting new episodes for some reason, only the US and Japan are. I live in the US, and were already up to Gulpin It' Down and Exploud and Clear.

Have you seen the ammount of Y-G-O on Sky One and Sky Mix this week!?!?!?! There's about 6 episodes a DAY! And yet no Pokemon!
Y-G-O is one of the worst shows EVER!

Sky One is unfair! Bring on the Pokemon! I don't think we get new eps of Advanced Challenge until the 21st March! Shocking...

Exactly! Hardly anyone misses Johto, I think Johto was the best region so far.

It had:
1) The best Pokemon (Bayleef, Cyndaquil, Noctowl, Totodile etc.)
2 The best storylines (Lugia saga etc.)
3) It was long (many, many episodes)
4) The battles were awesome (Silver Conference etc.)
5) Every Gym battle was great (Falkner, Whitney etc.)

Also Johto didn't bore me as Hoenn sort of is (sort of!).

Most of the reasons you have suggested are the reasons why people didn't like Johto.

1.) I agree that some of Ash's Johto pokemon were alright, but I prefare his Kanto and Hoenn.
2.) It was long because about 75% of them were fillers. There wasn't hardly any storyline at all to contribute to Ash's training or the Johto league.
3.) The Hoenn battles (both Gym and otherwise) were better because Ash was a better trainer and came up with great battle strategies to win.

Johto was a fantastic region, I'd enjoyed most of the fillers, and not to mention the gym battles were awesome too. The only disappointing aspect was the tournament, cause Ash beat Gary lol.

"The Princess And The Togepi" is to air one day after on sunday (27th february), then that's it until next weekend it appears.

Anyone see the amount of Pokémon Toonami is putting on?! They're starting to air 8 episodes a day, neat stuff!

When do you think they will start airing season 3?

God knows, hopefully sometime before summer. If they intend to play this many episodes then surely they must also know that people are going to become bored at some stage of the current episodes.

I'm gonna email Sky about airing Pokémon back at 5 in the moring again, and this time ask if they plan to do Johto, or at least the remainder of the Orange Islands this time round. What's their email address?

Next week on Saturday, Channel 4 are showing another 100 greatest program, this time it's the 100 greatest Cartoons.

Does anyone have any initial predictions about what will be number 1 or where Pokémon will be?

I think it's fairly obvious that the Simpsons will be number 1. I'm not sure if Pokémon will even be in the top 100.

They've already done the 100 greatest cartoons. Simpsons DID win it and Pokemon came I think in the top 50.

No, they did 100 Greatest Cartoon Characters, Homer Simpson was number 1, remember? I think Pikachu was there somewhere.

EDIT: The program I was thinking of was the 100 greatest TV characters, when Homer Simpson won. See: http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/microsites/G/greatest/tv_characters/results.html

They also did the 100 greatest kids tv shows, Pokémn was 73 and Simsons was 1. See: http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/microsites/G/greatest/kidstv/results.html

I've voted - really glad to see Wallace and Gromit there, The Snowman and Wacky Races there, I love these!

Ok whats the difference between 100 Greatest Cartoons and 100 Greatest Kids Shows. Its the same thing practically. The only difference is that you can include cartoons made for adults (South Park for example)

I hope that GMTV air Johto, I haven't seen Johto on TV in ages. Didn't they stop airing Pokemon in Master Quest? Maybe they will air the rest of it but they may go onto Advanced.

Sharpshooter
21st February 2005, 9:10 PM
I last episode GMTV aired I believe was "Brave The Wave", which of course is in the advanced season, not sure if they'll pick up from it though.

Anti-Richie
21st February 2005, 9:27 PM
GMTV only aired Master Quest up to Espeon Not Included, but they did air the rest of season 5 on GMTV2 (on ITV2).

Pokémon Advanced didn't make it onto GMTV2, so that last episode aired really was Brave The Wave. They didn't even air the first 10 or so Silver convention episodes either, so in all only 18 episodes were broadcast by GMTV last year. It really is a waste of money, if they purchased the whole season and didn't show it.

Good news that they are finally airing Pokémon again. My guess is it will be the start of season 7.

Oh god I hope not. Sky constantly play's episodes from season 7 all the time now, I don't get to see anything else, and also because I have them all taped anyway. So let's just hope it's somewhere in season 6, perhaps the aftermath of "Brave The Wave".

Oh by the way I have some information regarding the Johto saga.


Dear Tom

Thank you for your e-mail about the programme Pokemon.

Unfortunately, we no longer have the rights to years 1 and 2, but year 3 will be played before the end of the year, however, there is no specific date at the moment.

Thank you for contacting Sky.

Kind regards

Donald McLean

Viewer Relations

Yeah great Rush-job. Before the end of the year probably means Christmas lol.

I think "year 3" might mean the Johto Journeys as well as the conclusion of the Orange Islands saga, since on two occasions they stopped at "Charizard Chills".

Unfortunatley that means the end to Kanto for Sky, you'll have to watch Toonami for those now. And possibly the end of movie rights for the time-being as well, since they totally ignored that question.

pitcher_ross
24th February 2005, 6:59 PM
Wow, i'm really surprised that they'll never show the first or seconds series again - I much preferred these to Johto, short and to the point I felt.

I guess we know now why they were screening them in the morning at 5:00.

I thought they would have brought the rights to the series' outright?

Sharpshooter
25th February 2005, 3:35 PM
Obviously not because as it seems to be less of a priority to Sky now unfortunately, especially with all that Yu-Gi-Oh bollocks being played like there's no tomorrow :rolleyes:

I was hoping they would have some movie rights, but it looks like we're just gonna have to buy those instead I reckon.

I was going to say that I think that Toonami owns all the rights to those seasons.

Yeah says it begins 25th of March on the radiotimes guide too. In addition, where I live, a local channel plan's showing the third movie as a treat for easter on the 24th.

To catch up with the Americans as of current, it'll take up to a week (2nd of April) to get Love, Petalburg Style! which was shown recently in the states. And not to mention they'll have another 2 new episodes by the time that's done. So in practise, if Sky play's enough episodes this time round, we could actually go past them lol.
