Pokémon: The Johto Journeys is the name of the third season of the Pokémon anime. The 41-episode season showcases the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Brock in the Johto region, from New Bark Town up to Goldenrod City.
It originally aired as part of the 2000-2001 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Don't Touch That 'dile, which originally aired on October 14, 2000, and ended with The Fortune Hunters, which originally aired on May 19, 2001.
The Johto Journeys marked the beginning of the Johto saga. Johto would continue for two seasons, with Pokémon: Johto League Champions picking off where The Johto Journeys left off. Preceding it was the Orange Islands arc.
