'''Cartoon Network''' is a cable network owned by {{wp|Time Warner}} that carries the [[Pokémon anime]] meta series. 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.
+
'''Toonami Jetstream''' was a {{wp|Streaming media|streaming video}} service run by [[Cartoon Network]] and [[Viz Media]] to provide anime and action cartoons 24 hours a day. The service launched on July 17, 2006. The service remained online even after its parent programming block, [[Toonami]], ended on September 20, 2008. On January 20, 2009, Toonami Jetstream switched all available offerings with "top 10" lists from most of their at-the-time current shows. Toonami Jetstream shut down on January 30, 2009.
   
Previously, they had aired reruns of episodes from Pokémon's earlier seasons. As of July 2008, almost every series has aired on Cartoon Network. They've also started airing Advanced Generation episodes (currently [[Pokémon Advanced]]) from 7-8 AM EST. On September 29, 2008, they began to re-air [[Pokémon: Battle Frontier]] from 1-2 PM EST.
+
[[Cartoon Network Video]], Toonami Jetstream's former sister service, became Cartoon Network's lone streaming video service at the time Jetstream shut down. The Pokémon anime didn't initially migrate over to Cartoon Network Video, but would do so a few months after Jetstream's shutdown.
   
Cartoon Network also aired all of the [[Pokémon Chronicles]] episodes during the summer of 2006. Currently, the series does not air on the network.
+
The service was only available in the United States. Other regions have their own version of Jetstream, though not with Pokémon included in the lineup.

Toonami Jetstream was a streaming video service run by Cartoon Network and Viz Media to provide anime and action cartoons 24 hours a day. The service launched on July 17, 2006. The service remained online even after its parent programming block, Toonami, ended on September 20, 2008.

The fifth season debuted on Toonami Jetstream on June 16, 2008 under the Master Quest banner. Around the Whirlpool was the first episode offered under that classification.

Toonami Jetstream offerings

Listings in italics were active on Jetstream as of the final regular upload.

Trivia

File:Master Quest Jetstream.jpg
The Jetstream version of the Master Quest logo.
  • Toonami Jetstream used the opening based on Pokérap GS for all Pokémon Chronicles episodes. That was only done on the televisied airings with part 1 of The Legend of Thunder!; all other Pokémon Chronicles episodes used the Pokémon Chronicles theme for their televised airings.
  • The first five episodes of Johto League Champions used the Johto Journeys opening on Jetstream, similar to the original Kids' WB! airings of the episodes.
  • The Todd version of Todd Snap's Kanto episodes are the ones used on Toonami Jetstream. This appears to go with the retcon of making Snap his surname when Pokémon Snap was announced for the Virtual Console.
  • The Master Quest logo used different colors on the Jetstream banner than in the show itself.

Errors

  • Pokémon Paparazzi was mislabeled as being episode 10. The actual episode 10 in Indigo League is Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village. Subsequent Indigo League episodes also had wrong numbers attached. This running error may have been a result of Cartoon Network's recent tendency to air the first season's episodes in the order Kids WB showed them instead of their proper order.
  • Control Freak!, listed as episode 39 of Johto League Champions, was mistakenly given the title and description of the listed episode 39 in the previous arc. The scene selection showed images from the correct episode, and the correct episode played.
  • The above error was later repeated with Throwing in the Noctowl, the listed episode 14 of Master Quest. It was mistakenly given the title and description of the listed episode 14 of Pokémon Chronicles, but showed images from and played the correct episode. The episode was also given an initial expiry time of only nine days instead of the usual six weeks; it was later reuploaded with the correct expiry time, but still with the wrong title and description.
  • Mantine Overboard! initially did not list the episode number in the Master Quest classification (it was supposed to be 5); this error was later fixed.
  • The above error was later repeated with Fear Factor Phony! not listing its episode number in the Battle Frontier classification (it was supposed to be 1); unlike the above error, however, this one was never fixed.
  • The listed episode 6 of the Master Quest classification, Octillery The Outcast!, was initially listed with a title of "Copy Needed"; this error was later fixed and did not reoccur when featured in the Top 10 format.
