Pokémon Chronicles is a series comprising the dubbed versions of a number of Pokémon anime TV specials. The series follows recurring and supporting characters Ash Ketchum met on his journey, like Misty, her sisters, Sakura, Casey, Ritchie, and Tracey.

(Part 1) and ending with Pikachu's Winter Vacation (Christmas Night and Kanga Games) on Toonami UK. In Canada, YTV aired the series starting on September 9, 2005. In the United States, Cartoon Network aired the series from June 3, 2006 to November 25, 2006.
Pokémon Chronicles has seen DVD release in the United Kingdom and Australia. However, the series has yet to be available on DVD in the United States.
While Ash Ketchum continues on his quest to become the best, many others will experience their own unique journey through the Pokémon world—researchers, professors, Gym Leaders, Team Rocket members, Trainers, and even Pokémon. Some are familiar faces and others are strangers at first, but what they all have in common is a love of adventure—especially when it involves Pokémon!
