Pokémon: Advanced Challenge is the seventh season of the English-dubbed Pokémon TV series. It is comprised of episodes 41-92 of the Advanced Generation series. This season showcases the adventures of Ash, May, Brock, and Max in the Hoenn region, from the outskirts of Mauville City up to past Lilycove City.

It originally aired as part of the 2004-2005 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with What You Seed is What You Get, which originally aired on September 11, 2004, and ended with Judgment Day, which originally aired on September 10, 2005.

It is preceded by Pokémon: Advanced and followed by Pokémon: Advanced Battle.


A shadow hovers over Ash, May, and friends as they continue their journey through the Hoenn region, and it’s not just that of Mt. Chimney—both Team Magma and Team Aqua put plans into action with our heroes caught in the middle! When not foiling evil schemes, Ash and May chase their personal goals, with Ash battling for three more Gym Badges and May winning her first three Contest Ribbons. The group also gains new Pokémon like Torkoal and Bulbasaur, but could they be too much to handle?
