This is me trying to place where movies, side-story episodes, shorts and specials, and fit into the overall timeline of the anime. The core content of regular episodes (excluding time travel and flashbacks) all occur in their order of epicodes, and are considered the backbone of the anime. EP052 and EP053 shouldn't have epicodes and are actually more like Holiday Hi-Jynx and Snow Way Out!, but they have them because it would be too much work to remove them (at least, that's what I remember being told last time I suggested it).

If you have further information which can be used to place the episodes, please feel free to add it. This page is not intended for the mainspace and is just a personal project. Note that I didn't actually watch anything while editing this page (although I have seen many of them before) and simply went off the information I remembered or found easily on other pages. User:SnorlaxMonster/TTEchidna/Animeteams was useful in making this page.
