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.

Cartoon Network is a cable network owned by Time Warner that carries the Pokémon anime meta series. The channel was launched on October 1, 1992 after Turner purchased the animation studio Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1991. They started with Pokémon: Battle Frontier on September 8th, 2006. They picked up the series after corporate sibling Kids' WB! dropped the series in its efforts to focus more on series produced in-house, which has since been taken over by 4Kids Entertainment, the former producer of the anime series.

Previously, they had aired reruns of episodes from Pokémon's earlier seasons such as Master Quest. As of April 2010, almost every season has aired on Cartoon Network. They have also aired all of the Pokémon Chronicles episodes during the summer of 2006. Currently, the series does not air on the network.

New dubbed episodes of Pokémon Black & White: Rival Destinies can be seen on Saturday mornings at 8:30 AM ET/PT (7:00 AM CT). As of March 2011, it repeated Pokémon: Black & White. They both aired weekdays at 8:00 AM ET/PT. On February 18, 2012, Cartoon Network started airing Pokémon Black & White: Rival Destinies. Currently, their sibling network Boomerang airs the original series.

Cartoon Network tends to marginalize end credits-replace the original ending with their own generic credits while running a promo. This is not a very big loss for anime episodes, which have rather unremarkable ending sequences in the dub, unless the credits break away from the current format, such as in Borrowing on Bad Faith!. However, by extension, this means that the credits of Pokémon movies aired on the channel, which contain an epilogue, are missed, to the chagrin of viewers. Occasionally, the credits are simply sped up. Also, when the thirteenth movie first aired on the channel, several scenes were omitted, which TPCi did not appreciate.
