Pikachu's Jukebox opening
Pikachu's Jukebox was a segment that aired before the ending credits in several episodes in the English dub of the Pokémon anime.
The segment consisted of a small piece of one of six different songs from the Pokémon 2.B.A. Master CD. It was used from Princess vs. Princess to The Rivalry Revival, replacing the Pokérap. Before the songs are played, an eyecatch appears in which Ash says, "Don't go away, Pikachu's Jukebox is next".
- The line "Good luck with Muk and its Poison Gas/Make one wrong move and it'll kick your Grass", accompanied by footage of Muk, was changed in later broadcasts and the Indigo League box set to the line "Dratini comes first when you choose Dragon/But evolution's the solution if you're gonna win!" with footage of Dratini and evolution. In this version, Pikachu's original "Pika pika!" during the opening logo is changed to a different "Pikachu!" soundbyte.
- Pikachu's Jukebox showed many clips from the Orange Islands saga before the season ever aired in the U.S.; these clips prematurely showcased the major plot points of Ash's capture of Lapras and Tracey's joining of the group.
- The Dutch and Swedish dubs kept all songs in English.
