There has been much speculation to wether or not his show is the Hoso's, well i think we can 99.9% confirm this after reading a press release on Toonami Uk's website that states.

"The biggest Japanese phenomenon of the 21st century is back with a WORLD EXCLUSIVE of a brand new show, Pokemon Chronicles.

Ash,Brock,Misty,Tracey, Professor Oak are back in a series of unmissable adventures where each Pokémon Chronicles reveals a distinct tale of mystery surrounding one of its characters.

Collect a brand new episode every week to find out even more about the characters from the most successful anime show in the world...

Pokémon Chronicles - you got ta catch 'em all."

so i think this pretty much confirms they are the hoso's

These are the HOSOs not a continuation of AG so May is hardly in it, in fact I think shes in one for like 2 minutes

Well that's the confirmation we needed from Toonami. Incidently, this being released 12 days before it gets released on DVD here. So it's good news all round for the UK! Finally.

So it is the Hoso series! The Hoso series is great, finally getting dubbed! And they are airing in the UK first.

I've seen a few of the episodes and really enjoyed them, I'm glad that they are coming next month, Wednesday 11th of May. Toonami don't usually play episodes of something just once a week, they are usually on all week.

PiPikachu
4th April 2005, 1:56 PM
leaves me stuck thinking wether to

a) watch them on tv only
b) watch them on dvd only
c) watch on tv and buy the dvd's

somehow i suspect i will probably choose c but heh :P

Factory Head Noland
4th April 2005, 1:59 PM
Go for c), that's what I'm gonna do. Are the DVDs coming out in the UK stores?

Sharpshooter
4th April 2005, 2:00 PM
I'd take C :P

The only thing of course though is that judging from the original, Toonami don't edit things all that well. We never get "Who's that pokémon?", rarely do we get Pikachu's jukebox, and occasionally they don't even play the opening theme song.

It's all good still but I do hope Toonami give us the whole package this time without cuttng any of the special features out of it.

Since Toonami cut out the openings, does this mean we won't know if the opening is new?

It's looking like we'll never see the Raikou special dubbed. They would have mentioned it in the teaser if it was part of the series.

4kids stated it's coming out in the Fall for the U.S in their press release. No need to get paranoid over something so trivial.

Coming out in that fall - does this mean on TV or DVD?

Here's a nice solution for everyone; in the US or not. Buy a region code-free DVD player and import from the country that gets it first. :P
Me? I'm good with the Japanese version, so I likely won't even watch Chronicles.

I've just emailed Contender (company releasing the Chronicles DVD) for the second time after a month, following no response to my first email:

Hello,

I understand that you are releasing a DVD entitled "The Pokémon Chronicles - Volume 1" on 23/05/05. I am writing to enquire whether you can give me any details at all about the content of DVD (such as episode titles or a basic plot synopsis), as this sounds like a very interesting release to a Pokémon fan like myself.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

Surely they must have something on DVD. We're only a month and half away from it's release. Let's hope I get better luck this time.

Well good luck as I emailed play.com about the product a few weeks ago and they couldn't give me any more details about it. Alas, I'm hoping we'll get an image of the chronicles volume one before it gets released, at least so it looks believable.

Well this is good news, something fresh and new to watch Pokemon-wise. I hope Toonami air it at a decent time like 4:30pm (unlike SkyOne & Mix where I usually miss the Hoenn eps due to sleeping). I'm looking forward to this :)

I probably won't end up buying the DVDs once I've watched the set on TV, although it's cool for it to be sold in the shops.

WARNING! POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW!

I actually received a reply my email from Contender Entertainment today. It listed the episodes on the upcoming DVD! Here's the email:


Hi there (my name),

Many thanks for your email.

I have listed the episode names and synopsis below – I hope this is enough info for you. Please come back to me should you require any further detail.

The Legend of Thunder (feature length episode)
Team Rocket’s newest villains, Attila and Hun, set out to capture the legendary Pokémon Raikou, in order to harness its power and use it to take over the world.

Pikachu’s Winter Vacation - Delibird’s Dilemma and Snorlax Snowman
Delibird’s Dilemma – An enormous snowball knocks Delibird from the sky and scatters his bag of presents throughout the village.
Snorlax Snowman – While helping their new friend Snorlax find its way home, Pikachu and pals battle a wild whirlpool, encounter an undersea Pokémon haven and witness the beauty of the Northern Lights!

A Family That Battles Together Stays Together!
Brock returns to his hometown of Pewter City to find that his mother has turned the once-proud Pewter City Gym into a cute and pretty gym for Water-Type Pokémon.

With thanks and kind regards

Poonam Sahota
Senior Product Manager - Childrens /General Interest

So it would seem aswell as the regular Hosos we are getting the Raikou special, plus another Pikachu's Winter Vacation.

I live in the US and I think they'll probably just come straight to the US by DVD. KidsWb owns Pokemon now, so Cartoon Network can't air chronicles. KidsWb most likely will every saturday with a new AG episode too. I hope for the US it just comes straight to DVD because KidsWb only will show one new one a week, and it's just plain stupid. BTW, I hate when CN shows Pokemon, it ruins it completely. It doesn't air the theme song, and it's on at ridiculous times like 7:00 PM. Most people are eating dinner, doing homework, getting ready for bed [little kids], cleaning their rooms, or something else. BTW, on the Raikou one, it says that Atilla and Hun are the rivals. right? In History, there was a famous hun leader called Attilla the Hun and he raided like a savage. Most people who have high school history know about this. ;rukario;

CyberCubed
5th April 2005, 8:27 PM
4kids so ripped off the name "Hun" from TMNT. Since they make both shows, it makes sense.

So the first DVD has the Raikou special, a Winter Vacation, and the Brock hoso? Considering the Raikou special is over an hour, it's pretty damn awesome.

Looks like the second DVD will start with the Misty episode.

I don't think you have much to worry about. When WB aired the 7th movie, their ratings went through the roof! For them not the release these in the U.S. would be absolute murder.

I can't think of anything they would...although if anything they may cut out the part where Buson advances on Marina.

I know they'll keep the gratutious overtones between B&B, though. They're that kinda company.

Know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna say that "Atilla and Hun" are gratutious code names. Seriously, there's already an agent named Viper, and another named Lord Vicious the Mask/Iron Mask Marauder, so why *couldn't* these be code names?

I tried to find out on my own if Hoso was the Poke Chron a few months ago after stumbling on TVTome's description of it and other sites. I knew I was onto something ^^ I never got anywhere with it since I went straight to 4Kids and asked them to confirm it. Needless to say I never got an answer when I e-mailed them. I wonder when the US will release it? I hope it doesn't go straight to DVD.

Heracross
5th April 2005, 10:00 PM
be nice to see if they've kept the music too :P
I'm pretty sure that they will keep a lot if not all of the music from the Raikou special. Even though the AG dub throws out almost all of the original music, they've been keeping more music from the movies lately than ever before. Since it's much longer than normal episodes they'll probably treat it differently, as if it were a movie and therefor pay more attention to things such as the music. Of course that might just be wishful thinking, I have no doubts that they'll ruin the music in all of the other specials. :/

5th April 2005, 10:00 PM
Attila and Hun have to be two of the worst dub names (and puns too), but the fact that we're finally getting the Raikou episode overshadows the crap names. :D

5th April 2005, 10:00 PM
Attila and Hun are actually good names. Unlike the usual choice of names of TR duos being the first and last names of famous cowboys, this time they ripped one right from the history book, Attila the Hun was chosen to lead the Hun army to victory against their enemies. For more information, play the Age of Empires II scenario or look it up at your local library (I can feel it now, you are all saying "That's what that place is for!").

And really, it's common sense that 4kids would release Chronicles in the U.S. Why would an American dubbing company situated in New York go through the trouble and money to dub something just to release it in the UK? Use your brains people.

Chronicles will not be airing on KidsWB, it'll obviously have a DVD release. SO far I don't think it's airing on 4kidsTV either, which is a shame.

No no, it's a good *source*, but that doesn't make them good names.

Although I'm starting to warm to "Atilla". "Hun" is still a dreadful name.

Naming them after warlords was a good idea, better than naming them after poets, but...the end result...it's like they got a bull's eye on the wrong dartboard.

My guess is simple--Flint lied.

I actually think his English line makes more sense. Think about it--he doesn't know these kids, doesn't know that they're going to be his son's friends. And he loves his wife very much, so instead of telling them that she abandoned the family, he's going to make it so that she doesn't take any blame in their minds. Sure, it's a lie, but it makes it look like her not being there isn't her fault.

Sooner or later they'll be international seller's from the UK, probably almost immediatley on release just like how the UK can get newly released DVD's in America etc. So providing you have a multi-region DVD, it'll be alright I'd imagine.

That's possible, but it's also entirely possible that it's just bad writing and continuity. Brock *did* mention that he asked Professor Birch about Ash in "You Never Can Taillow," but he never mentions meeting the parents of Ash's two travel companions.

Actually, I'm pretty sure the woman with Flint is his girlfriend, not his mum. I'm 95% sure it's not his mum. It's either Flint's girlfriend or Flint's new wife. Either way, it's not his mum.

The dubbers name people after famous things. In Pokemon Heroes, Annie and Oakley are named after a woman called Annie Oakley. Same with Artilla and Hun. I love the name Artilla, but not Hun.

Overall:

1) I'm glad to hear the Raikou special is there.
2) I'm also glad to hear that the 2 Winter specials are there.
3) I also like that we DO have them.
4) Shops will have an offer or something, since the DVD comes out near the release of Pokemon Heroes.

Flint gets up and explains that the gym was running fine for awhile. He had the most mouth-dropping rock field set up. He then explains that it all changed when he met a new girl, Misuho.

Buson better be Hun. o.o; Attila doesn't suit him. :P

Yep. It's the new Cassidy/Mai/Clair/Old Caroline voice. It isn't too shabby, but still not an exact recreation.
I'm sure they'll do Flint as best they can. It's been so long after all.

Casey will be easy. Liza Ortiz with a higher voice than normal.

And the others are fairly recent (with the exception of Sakura), so that works too.

Are you guys sure that just because Pokemon Chronicles didn't show on the KidsWB lineup it will not show up in the US? The last report from 4Kids said that it would show up on WB either mid or late 2005, which means it will probably be a part of the summer lineup. KidsWB has done that before with X-Men Evolution and Megaman NT, so I bet this summer we'll see them show up in the US.

In case anybody still doubts that the e-mail sent to Anti-Richie is genuine, I just thought I'd confirm that I've also been in contact with Poonam Sahota a couple of times. In the past there's never been any new information on the release, but I asked again just yesterday and got the same information as Anti-Richie did. So it's definitely for real.

The run time of the DVD is 110 minutes.

It's being released in the UK on June 13 (not May as previously reported).

I'm looking forward to this series. :)

It appears a front cover has emerged as well! :)

Apologies for the size - only play.com has a front cover availible at the moment, would post it larger if I could find a suitable one.

The Advance DVD covers just have two pokemon on the cover, which is lame, and although this Charizard line cover looks nice, what does it have to do with those episodes? lol?

I would have thought they'd put Raikou on the cover, in order to advertise it as a legendary not seen in the anime yet...guess not.

I could just see some 10 year old looking on the cover of the DVD and thinking he gets new episodes of the Charmander line, only to be shocked when he see's that Charizard isn't in any of the 3 episodes. :O

Who knows? One thing's for sure, the folks in Japan are finally going to get a video version of it in a few months.

Question is when will that translate to a US release?

Blue Hiker
15th April 2005, 7:27 AM
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of that cover either. It looks way too cheap. But you never know, maybe they'll improve it before the release. It's not uncommon for cover art to go through a couple of revisions if it obviously looks really bad.

At this stage I don't think the new Pikachu short is going to be included as part of Chronicles -- you can see that all the actual OVAs are coming at the start of the series, so unless it comes at the very end I don't see it being included. That said, Pokémon Chronicles was definitely announced as being 22 episodes long, and even if you split the Raikou special up I think that leaves the count short by one or two episodes. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

And again, there's no news on a US release yet, but 4Kids wouldn't be dubbing it if they didn't seriously plan on releasing it in the US. I still think it'll probably show up on TV eventually -- perhaps on the 4Kids TV block. But even if it doesn't, it's sure to come out on DVD at the very least.

Blue Hiker

The previous winter shorts have all been dubbed, so it only makes sense that the most recent ones would be as well. I suppose since the Summer Festival short is also being released as an OVA in Japan it's not too different in that respect, but perhaps it's just too new to be part of the Chronicles series. Or like I said, maybe it could be included at the end of the series. Maybe.

The Slowking short isn't part of Chronicles so I'm not sure what you mean there.

Anti-Richie
15th April 2005, 8:28 PM
Thanks for confirming my email, Blue Hiker.

The cover art looks OK. Nothing special, though. They might have put the Charmander line on to tie in with FR/LG (a bit late, I know, but still..,)

Looking at one of the other topics gave me an idea: do you think they might include "Beauty and the Beach" as a bonus episode on a future volume of the Chronicles DVDs?

It just gets better and better for the UK at the moment regarding the Chronicles - Volume 2 is due out on the first of august this year! - http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2&title=649926&p=57&g=72&pa=sr

Hmmmmmmmmmm. I wonder who'll be on the front cover of this? Caterpie, Claydol and Yanma, perhaps? Or maybe something else totally random and unrelated to the Hosos. >.>

Turnabout is fair play?

We may be getting it here in the fall, though. There's talk it may be on the 4Kids Box, which is over on FOX, which would explain why it isn't on the WB fall schedule.

I actually think the UK deserve Pokemon Chronicles as the US get nearly everything before us (except we started Pokemon Advanced before you).

If its Caterpie and Yanma, then hell, I wouldn't be too bothered. Since Caterpie = personal favourite pokémon, and Yanma is just plain cute.
Although, I'm guessing its more than likely going to be another of the starter evolution chains.

For the record, does anyone know which animation team/s is/are in charge of producing the Hoso specials? From what I've seen, they're some of the better teams out there~

Heracross
4th May 2005, 4:36 PM
The Housous are the same length as normal episodes, the only thing that was longer than that was the Raikou Special. And if they show that on TV, they'll probably do the same thing they did in Japan and air it in half-hour segments rather than all at once.

There's been an advert about recently on Toonami, including scenes from the Team Rocket Hoso "Tough Battle! Team Rocket Enter!", the Raikou special and few others involving Tracey and Misty - so judging from those clips they are the Hoso's.

No, not really. The only characters we hear speaking are Jessie and some random scientist from the same episode, who I suppose isn't particulary important anyways. But from what I can gather, he sounded like Melvin the Magician, from the Exeggutor ep.

We're not 100% sure, but people are assuming that Buson will be Hun owing to someone on TMNT with a ripped physique and the name Hun.

If the show was dubbed in your country, wouldn't you find this a little on the strange side?

Judging by the fact that Toonami is doing the same thing with those awful One Piece and Code Lyoko things, I'd say it looks like they're planning on having all their new shows air in this sort of pattern from now on.

I actually think it's fair. The UK has only got a few games/episodes before the US in the last year. The only things that the UK got first were Pokemon Advanced (which I'm not sure about), Pokemon Dash and Pokemon Chronicles.

It should air in the US in fall.

No matter how good it is, I always think the opening theme song's crap at the first time of hearing, but this one was very bland, I think this is the first time the narrator even talks through it.

I've not seen the Japanese version but there does seem to be one too many errors here. Nevertheless I found at the first time of viewing, the episode to be very enjoyable. Will be waiting in anticipation for part 2 undoubtedly.

P-O-K-E-M-O-N
("pee-oh-kay-ee-em-oh-en")

Pokémon!

(Narrator now talking while music is still being played)

"Old Friends!"

"New beginnings!"

"Never before seen stories, from the world of pokémon!"

(The "Pee-oh-kay-ee-em-oh-en" spelling is sung in tandem with this next part)

Gotta catch'em,

'Dani and Yoshi' were always debatble canon names for the dub anyway. They were never actually confirmed to be the dub names for Kenta and Marina, so why complain?

Heh, so what are we going to do about Jun'ichi now then? Is he a Jackson or a Vincent? I can see much confusion ahead. Unless Vincent is his evil twin. Shock, horror.
