Pokémon: Indigo League (known at the time it was first aired simply as Pokémon) is the first dubbed season of the Pokémon anime. The season follows rookie Pokémon Trainer Ash Ketchum, his Pikachu, and his friends Misty and Brock as they travel across the Kanto region. The subtitle "Indigo League" is not used within the episodes, but was later added by the DVD boxed sets to distinguish it from the later seasons.

In Canada, the series was picked up by YTV. In the United States, the first forty episodes (excluding three) aired in syndication, with the rest of the run picked up by Kids' WB! starting with The Problem with Paras. The season began with Pokémon, I Choose You!, which originally aired on September 8, 1998, and ended with Pallet Party Panic, which originally aired on December 4, 1999.

This season was then followed by the Orange Islands arc, which was created to allow time for the development of Pokémon Gold and Silver, and when dubbed, served the same purpose for the translation of the aforementioned games.

See the list of Pokémon: Indigo League episodes for a list of episodes aired as part of this season.

  • With 80 episodes, this is the longest season of the dub yet.
    • If Japanese episodes are taken into account, this season would be 82 episodes long. EP035 and EP038 were banned outside of Japan. Also, Beauty and the Beach was initially banned but re-aired after heavy editing as a "lost episode" during Pokémon: The Johto Journeys. It was never aired again nor was it included in DVD release.
    • Holiday Hi-Jynx and Snow Way Out! are considered episodes of the season but are considered special episodes in Japan.
