Pokémon: Battle Frontier is the ninth season of the Pokémon anime and the fourth & final season of the Advanced Generation English-language dub. It is comprised of episodes 146-192 of the original Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation series. It follows Ash Ketchum as he continues to collect Symbols from the Kanto Battle Frontier while May participates in Pokémon Contests. It began with Fear Factor Phony, which originally aired on September 8, 2006 in the United States, and ended with Home is Where the Start Is!, which originally aired on March 3, 2007.

It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2006-2007 Cartoon Network Saturday morning line-up. The English dub underwent many changes at the start of the season. 4Kids Entertainment's licensing rights to the dub expired and in an agreement with Pokémon USA they decided not to renew. Meanwhile, Kids' WB! (a broadcast network) dropped all anime from its lineup leading to Cartoon Network (a cable network) picking up the series. It begins broadcasting on CITV/Action Stations! on October 30th 2008 in the UK, this is the first time this series has been shown on Freeview.

It is preceded by Pokémon: Advanced Battle and is succeeded by Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl, the first season of the dub of the Diamond & Pearl series, which is based on the Generation IV games.

Trivia

  • Battle Frontier is the only English season to have its own ending theme, instead of just a shortened version of the opening theme.
  • Battle Frontier is the only English season of the Advanced Generation series not to contain the word Advanced in its title.
  • In Flanders (Dutch-speaking part of Belgium), this season was skipped, and the broadcast of the Diamond & Pearl series started immediately after AG145 with the Dutch dub. However, in the Netherlands, Battle Frontier was broadcasted. It was eventually aired in Flanders.
