The Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station (Japanese: 週刊ポケモン放送局 Shūkan Pokémon Hōsōkyoku), also known as Hōsō, was a show that aired every Tuesday night on TV Tokyo from October 15, 2002 to September 28, 2004. It was preceded by Pocket Monsters Encore and succeeded by Pokémon Sunday. The episodes were hosted by Misty and Brock, who just introduced the episode and closed the episode.

It used Marching March as its ending theme.

Episode types

There were three types of episode:

  • Variety shows: These would often include episode clips and live action segments featuring KABA.chan, a Japanese celebrity who came out as a transgender woman in the mid-2010's, dressed in a Treecko suit, and a random group of elementary school children. KABA.chan, who is probably best known to non-Japanese for her cameos in Destiny Deoxys, including a scene where she got on a train moments before leaving, played a major role in most of the variety show episodes.
  • Encore - Sometimes, an old episode would be rerun, and other times full-length movies and TV specials would be aired. Many times these episodes would be requested by fans.
  • Side stories - New animated episodes featuring recurring side characters such as the Pichu Brothers, Casey and Ritchie. These episodes were dubbed into English for the series Pokémon Chronicles. These special episodes are commonly referred to by fans as "Hosos" or "Housous", a derivative of the show's title.

There were 91 episodes in total.

Opening animation

The series did not use a lyrical musical opening like its anime counterpart. The 10-second CGI clip showing an 8-story high 'TV Pokémon' building is displayed while an announcer introduces the show. A large Poké Ball is on the top of the building. Just before the clip ends, the Poké Ball opens and is converted into a satellite antenna. The Poké Ball antenna then shows electric bolts, signifying that it is transmitting, and the logo appears on screen. The building then fades out and, Misty and Brock appear and introduce the clips for the day's episode.
