Toonami is an extension of Cartoon Network. It formerly aired Pokémon Chronicles and, after Kids' WB! stopped airing new episodes of the anime, Battle Frontier.
From July 2001 until June 2002, Kids' WB!'s weekday afternoon editions, which included Pokémon, were branded Toonami on Kids' WB, making this period the first instance of Pokémon on Toonami.
The Toonami block aired for the final time on September 20, 2008.
Although the Toonami block itself ended, the block's streaming-video service Toonami Jetstream, which showed episodes from various arcs of Pokémon anime, continued operations until January 30, 2009.
In the UK, Toonami was its own channel that was later renamed as Cartoon Network TOO.
After nearly four years of being off the year in the US, Toonami later returned on the air on May 26, 2012, but now on Adult Swim, Cartoon Network's late-night programming block. This was done by popular demand after Adult Swim's April Fools stunt.
