'''Toonami Jetstream''' was a {{wp|Streaming media|streaming video}} service run by [[Cartoon Network]] and [[VIZ Media]] to provide anime and action cartoons 24 hours a day. The service launched on July 17, 2006. The service remained online even after its parent programming block, [[Toonami]], ended on September 20, 2008. On January 20, 2009, Toonami Jetstream switched all available offerings with "top 10" lists from most of their at-the-time current shows. Toonami Jetstream shut down on January 30, 2009.

'''Boomerang''' is a cable network owned by {{wp|Time Warner}}, operating as a sister station to [[Cartoon Network]].
   
[[Cartoon Network Video]], Toonami Jetstream's former sister service, became Cartoon Network's lone streaming video service at the time Jetstream shut down. The Pokémon anime didn't initially migrate over to Cartoon Network Video, but would do so a few months after Jetstream's shutdown.

==Line-up==
  +
Boomerang is well-known for airing many cartoons that came from the 1900s such as {{wp|The Flintstones}} and {{wp|The Jetsons}}, as well as older episodes of currently-running series, Pokémon among them. A full list is on {{wp|List of programs broadcast by Boomerang|Wikipedia}}.
   
The service was only available in the United States. Other regions have their own version of Jetstream, though not with Pokémon included in the lineup.

==History==
[[Image:Jetstreamshutdown.png|thumb|right|Message of Toonami Jetstream's shut down on January 30, 2009.]]
+
Boomerang was made shortly after the introduction of Cartoon Network in 1992. However, it was only a block for the network, and didn't become a channel until 2000. During its time as a block, it lasted for only a couple of hours at a time.

===With Pokémon===
<!-- Only include information relevant to Pokémon in this section. -->The third season of the [[Pokémon anime]] debuted on the service on October 9, 2006 under the [[Pokémon: The Johto Journeys|Johto Journeys]] banner. The first episode offered on the service was ''[[EP106|The Pokémon Water War]]''. The last episode under this classification, ''[[EP157|The Fortune Hunters]]'', debuted on Jetstream on October 1, 2007.
+
Boomerang first started airing episodes of the popular Pokémon series when it first aired the {{series|original}} in 2010, and after that in March of 2010. Currently, as of June 2012, the channel airs episodes of [[Pokémon: Advanced]]. Episodes are currently airing at 6:00 PM & 6:30 PM {{wp|Eastern Time Zone|ET}}/{{wp|Pacific Time Zone|PT}} on weekdays<ref>[http://www.locatetv.com/listings/boomerang Boomerang schedule]</ref>.
 
[[Pokémon Chronicles]] also debuted on Toonami Jetstream on October 9, 2006. The first episode of the side series offered on the service was part 1 of ''[[The Legend of Thunder!]]''. The final episode, Pikachu's Winter Vacation: ''[[PK02|Christmas Night]]''/''[[PK03|Kanga Games]]'', debuted on the service on March 5, 2007.
 
 
The fourth season debuted on Toonami Jetstream on May 29, 2007 under the [[Pokémon: Johto League Champions|Johto League Champions]] banner. [[EP158|''A Goldenrod Opportunity'']] was the first episode offered under that classification. The last episode under this classification, [[EP209|''Machoke, Machoke Man!'']], debuted on Jetstream on May 27, 2008.
 
 
The first season debuted on Toonami Jetstream on January 14, 2008 under the [[Pokémon: Indigo League|Pokémon]] banner as part of a special offering involving {{g|Snap}}. [[EP055|''Pokémon Paparazzi'']] was the first episode offered under that classification. This classification never saw a regular progression.
 
 
The fifth season debuted on Toonami Jetstream on June 16, 2008 under the [[Pokémon: Master Quest|Master Quest]] banner. [[EP210|''Around the Whirlpool'']] was the first episode offered under that classification. The last episode under this classification, [[EP240|''Some Like It Hot'']], debuted on Jetstream on January 13, 2009. This classification was the only one featured in the Top 10 format prior to the service's shutdown.
 
 
The ninth season debuted on Toonami Jetstream on November 17, 2008 under the [[Pokémon: Battle Frontier|Battle Frontier]] banner. [[AG146|''Fear Factor Phony'']] was the first episode offered under that classification. The last episode under this classification, [[AG154|''Reversing the Charges'']], debuted on Jetstream on January 13, 2009.
 
 
Toonami Jetstream released episodes new to the service every Monday, unless a particular Monday is a United States holiday, in most cases the debut was on a different day (such as the following Tuesday or the preceding Friday). Like other shows on Toonami Jetstream, new Pokémon episodes in currently-running seasons debuted every week and remained available on Toonami Jetstream for six weeks after they debuted on the service.
 
 
Toonami Jetstream also offered short previews of ''[[M09|Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea]]'', [[DP002|''Two Degrees of Separation!'']], and ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'' prior to their television debuts.
 
 
To celebrate the release of Pokémon Snap on the Virtual Console, [[Pokémon.com]] have announced that episodes featuring [[Todd Snap]] will be offered for one week later in December. That method was scrapped in favor of traditional weekly progression; his three Johto appearances appeared as part of the normal Johto League Champions progression, with his Kanto appearances appearing on January 14, 2008, January 22, 2008, and January 28, 2008.
