Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands (originally branded on Kids' WB! as Pokémon: Orange Island Adventures) is the second season of the Pokémon anime. This season showcases the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Tracey in the Orange Islands before they return to Pallet Town. The subtitle "Adventures in the Orange Islands" is not used within the broadcast episodes, but was later added by the DVD boxed sets to distinguish it from the later seasons.

It originally aired as part of the 1999-2000 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Princess vs. Princess, which originally aired on September 4, 1999, and ended with Charizard Chills, which originally aired on September 2, 2000.


Ash’s journey to the top of the Indigo League continues—but will his friendship with fellow Pokémon League competitor Richie endanger his chances? With his Kanto journey completed, Ash finds there’s still plenty to see and do when Professor Oak sends him and his friends to the Orange Islands. Brock falls head-over-heels for the attractive Professor Ivy and decides to stay with her, leaving Ash and Misty alone as a dynamic duo—at least until they meet intrepid Pokémon watcher Tracey Sketchit!
