Additions

Should something be added about how we get most of the same stuff as the US? Porygon-Z 16:53, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Probably, yeah. I don't know how much of a "duh" that is, but it wouldn't hurt. ZestyCactus 16:59, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm just having a difficult time of thinking of a way to word it. Porygon-Z 18:45, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
How about a merchanside section starting with "Canada recieves most American Pokémon merchandise, such as...", or something like that? --electAbuzzzz 18:47, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm gonna add it basically the same as what you just said. Will have to think of more. Porygon-Z 18:50, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Kids' WB!

Did this happen anywhere else besides Newfoundland? In St. John's, up until the mid-2000s we could always hear The WB, but never see it. It wasn't your normal grey pixelated mess, it was the actual broadcast all jumbled. Sometimes it looked alright for a few seconds. It was like this everywhere in SJ, not just my house. I don't believe you could buy these channels unless you had digital cable or satellite, so I'm not sure why they were there. These channels were in the 60s and 70s, but buying the full cable package got you from 2-59. Moving on, every place I visited in NL (which is alot of places) besides St. John's and the surrounding area actually had The WB as a legit channel. Porygon-Z 19:13, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

I've never heard of anything like that. O_o not that I don't believe you, but I've never seen that before. We don't have The WB in Toronto (unless, y'know, I just don't know people who do have it) ZestyCactus 18:15, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
I was always looking forward to travelling around in the summer because I would be able to watch the new Pokemon episodes ^^. Porygon-Z 18:17, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Interestingly enough, Here in Hamilton, Ontario, we have had WB ever since pokemon debuted pretty much, and nothing like what you explained happened over here. Right now, I have a dish network satteleite system and can get Cartoon network. Just incase a storm comes, I have basic cable package from cogeco cable so I am able to get YTV as well. I have never seen this happen on both my cable provider and my dish, so long story short, the WB problem must have been very localized from where you live. Vhayes1992 23:03, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon.ca

It gets redirected to Pokemon.com. Worth mentioning? I think it would be nice to have a link to the country's Pokemon site in the infobox, too. Porygon-Z 18:11, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Hm I just tried it, and it doesn't anymore...used to. Porygon-Z 18:12, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Am I seeing things?

It.s Friday December 11, and Instead of "The lonely snover" being aired, Advanced Battle came on on YTV. Anyone else see this. It is airing as I am typing this. - Vhayes1992 13:07, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Ahhh I have no idea, I was already on my way to work by then and I never remember to tape it. D: I guess one of us should try to catch (or tape) Monday's show and see if that's AB, too? ZestyCactus 00:34, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Look Here and it prove that they started AB. - Vhayes1992 01:10, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
So are they airing AB now instead of GB? ZestyCactus 02:11, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
**all the time or just on weekdays? ZestyCactus 02:11, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

On Demand

On YTV On Demand there WAS some Pokémon episodes, I think there was the one where Iris meets Georgia, and Excadrill listens to Iris and a few other Black and White episodes, should we change it to say they do put Pokémon on YTV on demand?
