Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands is the second season of the Pokémon anime. The 35-episode season showcases the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Tracey in the Orange Islands before they return to Pallet Town. The season is referred to as "Adventures in the Orange Islands" by both fans and the released DVD collection due to the original airings having no subtitle, like later seasons would.

It originally aired as part of the 2000 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with A Scare in the Air, which originally aired on January 8, 2000, and ended with The Rivalry Revival, which originally aired on October 14, 2000.

Adventures in the Orange Islands marked the beginning of the filler arc that spans between the Indigo League and the Johto saga which begins with Pokémon: The Johto Journeys. It was produced in order to allow for the completion of Pokémon Gold and Silver, which the Johto saga was based on.

See the List of Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands episodes for a list of episodes aired as part of this season.
