Dogasu's Backpack | Episode Comparisons | Kanto Region

Here is a list of the episodes in the first storyline of the original Pocket Monsters series.  All episodes are listed in the Japanese order.  Click on the Japanese episode number to reach the comparison.

Season One (Syndication)

Pokémon Indigo League

Season One began airing in the United States on September 7th, 1998.  The season ran for 52 episodes.

The first 40 episodes of the season premiered in syndication, meaning that the network they aired on was different depending on the city.  For some people, Pokémon aired on their local Fox affiliate.  For others, UPN or Kids' WB! 

The batch of episodes dubbed for syndication omitted three episodes; Episode 018, "Holiday at Aopulco," Episode 035, "The Legend of Miniryuu," and Episode 038, "Electric Soldier Porygon."  The eighteenth episode was eventually dubbed and aired as a "lost episode," but it is not recognized as being a part of any season.
