Pokémon: Indigo League (known at the time it was first aired simply as Pokémon) is the first dubbed season of the Pokémon anime. The season follows rookie Pokémon Trainer Ash Ketchum, his Pikachu, and his friends Misty and Brock as they travel across the Kanto region. The subtitle "Indigo League" is not used within the episodes, but was later added by the DVD boxed sets to distinguish it from the later seasons.

In Canada, the series was picked up by YTV. In the United States, the first forty episodes (excluding three) aired in syndication in 1998, with the rest of the thirty-nine episodes were ran and picked up by Kids' WB! starting with The Problem with Paras in 1999. The season began with Pokémon, I Choose You!, which originally aired on September 8, 1998, and ended with Friends to the End, which originally aired on November 27, 1999.

This season was then followed by the Orange Islands arc, which was created to allow time for the development of Pokémon Gold and Silver, and when dubbed, served the same purpose for the translation of the aforementioned games.
