No, it's not an error. It's how it airs internationally, and DVD releases are usually modified comparing to broadcast version. The "saga" in the dub version starts when Ash decides to compete in the Orange League and Tracey joins the team. --AtoMan 17:11, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

No, I think you're wrong. Notice that there is a break between this and the previous episode in both Japanese and American airings, and that IMO marks the change of a season. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 17:18, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Um? First of all, the 2nd "season" starts with 53rd dubbed episode (Beauty and the Beach doesn't count), and is the first episode not to have PokeRap but a Pikachu's Jukebox, as well as shorter ending sequence (with smaller size black box with credits). What do you mean by "break"? The new "generation" series always start with Ash arriving in a new region and having his goal set. Before The Lost Lapras Ash had no intention of competing in the Orange League, because he didn't know about it. And even without that, The Lost Lapras is the first episode in 4kids dub that uses new Opening sequence and that's a fact, not a speculation. --AtoMan 17:35, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
I got the break thing wrong, forget it, but please notice that this statement talks about Orange Islands arc, not Orange League arc. During this episode the main characters arrive to the Orange Archipelago, it has nothing to do with the League. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 17:40, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Same thing. Arc doesn't start until Ash gets to know about the league and Tracey joins the team - before that his journey to Orange Archipelago doesn't differ from any of his Kanto journeys at all - after all, Orange Islands are still part of Kanto, right? Kist like sinnoh saga doesn't start in the episode when Ash first hears about the region, but in the one Dawn appears for the first time. The OP was moved in the dub version to the "right" place IMO. And DVD versions don't really count, because they are usually either KidsWB versions or have further edits. --AtoMan 21:32, 28 December 2008 (UTC)


The comment at the end about Zeppelin's is factually incorrect as Zeppelin's are currently being manufactured. Goodyear has even ordered four of them to replace their blimps in 2014. "The Zeppelin NT ("Neue Technologie", German for new technology) is a class of airships being manufactured since the 1990s by the German company Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH (ZLT) in Friedrichshafen." ~wikipedia Lounti (talk) 14:18, 7 December 2012 (UTC)Lounti
