How come the original series episode list is "tweaked"? Pallet Party Panic should be Episode 83 but is listed as 81. Snow Way Out and Holiday Hi-Jynx are counted as episodes.

I dunno. It'd really mess up all the numbering we have right now... I really personally wonder why HHJ and SWO aren't counted... they were in the original schedule, they just didn't air them when Pokémon came back because they were meant to be aired as some sort of Christmas special, and that's kinda dumb to do in the middle of April. TTEchidna 18:47, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
I always thought they were only considered specials and not episodes. I seem to remember years ago several sites not counting them as episodes. And you're right, it would really mess up everything if we moved all of them. --PAK Man Talk 19:02, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
This is discussed in the manual of style. The original reason was so that the numbering lines up with Pokeani, however, things have gotten a little complicated since AG101. - 振霖T 02:46, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I really don't think that is a good reason because the fact is that they are still regular episodes and should be noted that way. If they weren't real episodes then why would they be on the boxsets?

----HoennMaster 05:30, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

The numbering is based on Japanese broadcasting, so whether or not they are included in American boxsets has no bearing on it. - 振霖T 09:36, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Can we include a translation of the Japanese titles?

I find it silly that we have the English title, the kanji for the Japanese title, but no translation of the Japanese. Is there a way to include both the Kanji and translation of the Japanese episode titles? I would be appreciative and be willing to help if there is someway to get them done quickly (like a team effort or some sort of code). Thanks for any answers.

Ditto for this, see my answer at the AG episode list talk page. UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 17:50, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

i was just about to suggest this.For each episode theres a translation into most launguages.But ironiclly not japanese romaji.How come?And a question why is fushigane in katakana i think it means mystery as in the episode bulbasaurs garden?--Solid! 08:11, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

A note on season boundries

While title changes usually happen at the start of a season, the start of new regions took more importance for the decision of when the change happens. (Thus, the uneven lengths of the Johto sections.) I don't know where the split between season 1 and season 2 lies but I do know the rest from how the Johto episodes are batched:

  • Season 3: The Pokémon Water War -> The Fortune Hunters (The end of Orange + Johto Journeys)
  • Season 4: A Goldenrod Opportunity -> Machoke, Machoke Man (Johto League Champions)
  • Season 5: Around the Whirlpool -> You're a Star, Larvitar! (Most of Master Quest)
  • Season 6: Address Unown -> Watt's with Wattson (The end of Master Quest + Advance)

So keep that in mind with the new template. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 00:14, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

The boundary between seasons 1 and 2 is a tricky case. EP052 and EP053 are the first two episodes of season 2, but the four episodes afterward are the last four episodes of season 1. This is due to dub reordering, probably so Todd's original three-episode arc wasn't split between seasons. As a result, the dub season 1's final five episodes are 51-54-55-56-57 and season 2's first three episodes are 52-53-58.
Keep in mind that the two episodes the dub reordered to the start of season 2 (52 and 53) were reordered into their place in the Japanese order in the aftermath of the EP038 incident. --Shiningpikablu252 00:55, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh who cares what the damn broadcasting companies ordered them as? Title change = season change. Season 1 was 82 episodes, there, happy day. We don't consider any other breaks besides the title change. TTEchidna 21:20, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Um, if you're doing it that way why does "season 2" start with EP082 which still uses the original OP? This really isn't any different to another division where saga and Japanese OP change ≠ "season" change, except it's one episode this time instead of 13. I mean come ON, if you're going to use a system that goes against an official source at least be consistent about it. Or you could, you know, use the actual seasons, keep EP054-EP057 in the right places — adding an asterisk note that indicates they aired as part of season 1 — and make this a factual encyclopaedia page instead of just a fans' list of episodes riddled with inaccuracies. -- Thingamajig257 00:32, 10 April 2010
I believe this list goes by the DVDs' season splits - EP082 was included on the Orange Islands DVDs, thus why it is the first episode of the second season.
Also, please take note of the dates on talkpage discussions in the future. It generally isn't the greatest idea to respond to anything more than a few months old. 梅子 00:55, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Also on the topic of the seasons in which the episodes air, there is full evidence on the Official Pokémon Website that the seasons air on those Episodes as well, here's the complete list of the seasons all the way up to number 6:
  • Season 1: Pokémon - I Choose You! -> Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden (Most of Indigo League)
  • Season 2: Princess vs. Princess -> Charizard Chills (The end of Indigo League + Beginning of Orange Islands)
  • Season 3: The Pokémon Water War -> The Fortune Hunters (The end of Orange Islands + Beginning of Johto Journeys)
  • Season 4: A Goldenrod Opportunity -> Machoke, Machoke Man (All of Johto League Champions)
  • Season 5: Around the Whirlpool -> You're a Star, Larvitar! (Most of Master Quest)
  • Season 6: Address Unown -> Watt's with Wattson (The end of Master Quest + Beginning of Advanced)
We should number the seasons respectively and have the different titles right at the time of when the changes in the opening occur.—Platinum Lucario (talk) 09:56, 1 February 2015 (UTC)


Hey, I uploaded file:EP039.png So it will appear on this list but it's not showing up. Is there somethine else I have to do for it to show here? - Flex S 11:43, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Umm, I can see it, it's there. Maybe you need to refresh the page.. Kevzo8 11:43, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Refresh the page.--FF(editstalk) 11:47, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Ahh, It's there now. I will work on uploading all original screenshots, for this article and others. If that is OK. - Flex S 11:50, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
GREAT! Check my User page for a list of episode headers that needs to be uploaded!.--FF(editstalk) 11:52, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

It may just be my computer,

But why aren't some of the Images showing up, And I'm not dumb, Like EP029 (The Punchy Pokémon), It shows the episode name, but not the image. AND ITS BEEN UPLOADED, plus, it seems fine on Opera but not on Firfox, the rest are there however.--FF(editstalk) 11:46, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

It looks fine to me. The image are captioned as its name, so that when you hover the pointer on the image, the title will be shown. If the image fail load, it would just show the dub name. Sometimes it really happens. Kevzo8 11:51, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh alright, I just have a fierce rivalry with my computer. thanks for clearing that up.--FF(editstalk) 11:54, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
I think I have the same thing, sometimes "Electric Shock Showdown" shows the name instead of the picture. Using Firefox. - Flex S 12:01, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
The list is like 50kb long, some browsers would really have problem loading the page. I'm also a Firefox 3 user.Kevzo8 12:04, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Why it's protected!

Because there's no freakin' need to edit this page ever ever ever again. It's fine as it is. It's done, been over for six years. There's no need to change how any episodes are listed or anything. We don't need to put every little detail about the episode on there, either. No one cares if it was banned. Guess why? Because all of the episodes that didn't air ARE BANNED. TTEchidna 21:32, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Images Broken

Hey, could this possibly be unprotected for like 5 minutes so I could fix the broken images? I would just fix the links so it shows up as the image that is on the actual episode page as they just appear as numbers and it looks horrible. thanks. -MasterKenobi 00:08, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

It's the server, it's happening to me too, don't worry about it.--ForceFire 03:03, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

same here.I had to refresh the page 15 times to finally get all the pics.--Solid! 08:07, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Another picture problem

I uploaded EP070, but it isn't showing up, and when I click on the image link, it says it hasn't been uploaded. When I try to re-upload it, it says an image (mine!) already exists. What am I doing wrong?? Jazzmoth 01:39, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

It's some sort of transferring problem. Your picture is there, Bulbapedia just isn't showing it. You may have to refresh the page or wait a while. --ケンジガール 01:42, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect Dating

I've noticed, going through the list, that some episodes are listed out of order. EP225 for example is set before previous english episodes. Firemaker 00:04, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

That's 4Kids's fault. They aired the episodes out of order because they're morons. TTEchidna 00:49, 27 June 2009 (UTC)


When I hover over Pippi on EP006 it says Cleffa, but Cleffa wasn't in the episode. It should be Clefairy. So can it be changed?Pokemon champ 03:57, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

I have tried to edit the page to correct this, too, but the page is still protected.

Asking for a chance

Can someone with admin powers change "Canna" to "Kanna" and "Shiba" to "Siba" in this article? --Maxim 13:55, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Edit request

Please fix "Fuschia" to "Fuchsia" in the TT tag in the Japanese name of EP032. Thanks. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 11:11, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Another edit request

Could someone change "Bulu" to "Bull" in the translated Japanese title for EP149, because "Bull" is the trademarked romanization for Snubbull. Compass 22:31, 27 August 2010 (UTC)


EP034: please change "{{tt|Garura|Kangskhan}}" in "{{tt|Garura|Kangaskhan}}". --Valepert 15:55, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Episode 81

"Pallet Party Panic" is officially considered (at least in the US) to be the first episode of the Orange Islands saga, yet it's classified here as the last episode of the Indigo League saga. Shouldn't that be changed?- unsigned comment from Lawrence (talkcontribs)

Indigo League

I though the Indigo League only had 52 episodes? Source: [[1]] - unsigned comment from Jasper C. (talkcontribs)

This page lists the Indigo League arc (Ash's adventure in Kanto), not the season Pokémon: Indigo League. --Abcboy (talk) 00:23, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

A request for you...

The first five series based on the events of the first five respective generations were not given an English name until after the release of Pokémon the Series: XY. Please, will you split this article into "List of Pokémon the Series: The Beginning episodes" and "List of Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver episodes" in merge the final twelve episodes into "List of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire episodes"?

  • Pokémon - I Choose You! (TB001) through Charizard Chills (TB105) should be in "List of Pokémon the Series: The Beginning episodes".
  • The Pokémon Water War (GS001) through You're a Star, Larvitar! (GS157) should be in "List of Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver episodes".
  • Address Unown! (RS001) through Hoenn Alone! (RS012) should be in Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire episodes".

SaturnMario, his talk and his contributions 23:25, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

But that wouldn't make any sense! The original series only consists of the Kanto, Orange Islands, and Johto episodes! Why should any of them be combined with the Hoenn episodes? They are not part of the same series! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:50, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Some sources identify that the original series only consists of 80 episodes of the Indigo League arc, 36 episodes of the Orange League arc, and 157 episodes of the Johto League arc. However:
  • The Pokémon Water War through The Rivalry Revival were not included in the Orange League arc.
  • Charizard Chills is considered the final official episode of Pokémon the Series: The Beginning.
  • The Pokémon Water War is considered the first official episode of Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver.
  • Address Unown! through Hoenn Alone! were not included in the Johto League arc.
  • You're a Star, Larvitar! is considered the final official episode of Pokémon the Series: Gold and Silver.
  • Address Unown! is considered the first official episode of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire and the Hoenn League arc.
--SaturnMario, his talk and his contributions 23:44, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Series does not correspond to seasons. In fact, on Pokemon TV, those episodes you mentioned are now moved to the corresponding region header. All AG episodes are now under RS series, all GS episodes are under GS series. We already have individual articles for the individual seasons. -Pokeant (talk) 07:40, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
