Pokémon: Advanced is the sixth season of the the Pokémon anime, consisting of the last 12 episodes of the original series, and the first 40 episodes of the Advanced Generation series. This season showcases the Silver Conference and the beginning of the adventures of Ash, May, Brock, and Max in the Hoenn region, from Littleroot Town up to Mauville City.

It originally aired as part of the 2003-2004 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Address Unown!, which originally aired on September 13, 2003 and ended with Watt's with Wattson, which originally aired on September 4, 2004.

It is preceded by Pokémon: Master Quest, the last season of the original series dub, and succeeded by Pokémon: Advanced Challenge.


Polishing off the Silver Conference, Ash heads toward his next challenge—the far-off Hoenn region! While he must say goodbye to old friends, he makes the acquaintance of May, a Trainer just starting out on her Pokémon journey. Along with her little brother Max and the ever-reliable Brock, this pack of Pokémon Trainers begin pursuing their dreams—with Ash racking up three Gym Badges, while May changes tack to follow the Contest path of a Pokémon Coordinator.
