  • Pokémon Season 14: Black & White Collection 2 (BW025-BW048)


  • Who's That Pokémon? returned at the beginning of the season, after an absence of 344 episodes.
  • Unlike previous seasons, this season has more episode titles based more on either the original Japanese titles or the concept of the episode as a whole rather than being puns. This may be an extension of the idea of the franchise returning to its roots, as many early original series episodes had their titles based on the original Japanese title.
  • In the Danish version, Mathias Klenske, the Danish voice of Ash, did some of the translation. This is according to the Credit Subtitles which are used at Disney XD.
