Adventures on the Orange Islands
This is a list of episodes in the animated series Pokémon, named Pokémon: Indigo League for the DVD releases. The episodes aired in Japan as Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā ), covering the first season of the series about the adventures of series protagonist, Ash Ketchum and his friends, Misty and Brock on the way to the Indigo Plateau. The episodes are directed by Masamitsu Hidaka and produced by Oriental Light and Magic and TV Tokyo.
Ash Ketchum is now 10 years old and is able to start on a new journey as a Pokémon trainer. On his first day Ash slept through his alarm and missed his chance to get one of the three Kanto starter Pokémon: Charmander, Bulbasaur or Squirtle. However, Professor Oak had one last Pokémon at his lab, a Pikachu. At first Pikachu did not get along with Ash, but over the course of the season Ash gained Pikachu's trust and they became best friends, developing a special bond. On the way Ash meets Misty, the Cerulean City Gym Leader who loves water Pokémon and wants to join him until he'll pay for her bike which was accidentally destroyed by Pikachu, and Brock, the Pewter City Gym Leader who wants to join Ash on his journey so he can become the greatest Pokémon breeder. Ash catches and makes friends with many Pokémon which sets him up for a great adventure. However, through his journey he has to deal with the Team Rocket trio of Jessie, James, and Meowth, and his childhood rival, Gary Oak, Prof. Oak's grandson who also is a Pokémon Trainer that always seems two steps ahead of Ash. After obtaining all 8 Kanto Gym Badges needed to compete in the Pokémon League at Indigo Plateau, Ash reaches the top 16, losing out to a close friend, Ritchie.
The division between seasons of Pokémon is based on the openings of each episode, and may not reflect the actual production season. The English episode numbers are based on their first airing in the United States in syndication, and on The WB Television Network. (Other English-speaking nations largely followed either this order or the Japanese order.) Subsequent airings of the English version follow the original Japanese order, except in the case of episodes which are no longer shown in English. Midway through the original series, YTV began to air the episodes before Kids' WB until sometime in Johto.
The first season ran from April 1, 1997 – January 28, 1999 in Japan. This season was shown on TV Tokyo. In the United States, new episodes originally aired in syndication from September 8, 1998 – November 20, 1998, but were moved mid-way through the season to Kids' WB's Saturday morning line-up on February 13, 1999.
The episodes of this season have been released in 26 individual DVDs and VHS between December 13, 1998 and January 23, 2001. Between 2006 and 2008, Viz Media re-released episodes of the season in three DVD compilations. The first twenty-six episodes of this season were released on DVD on November 21, 2006, with "Beauty and the Beach", being skipped. The second part of the first season came out on November 13, 2007, with "Princess vs. Princess" and "The Purr-fect Hero" being skipped. The third and final part was released on February 12, 2008.
Since April 5, 2010, the original Pokémon episodes are airing weekdays on Boomerang (TV Channel) at 6:30pm.
