  The English language version of the Japanese program Pocket Monsters made its way to American airwaves on September 7th, 1998.  This translation enabled viewers from all over the world to experience the phenomenon that had been taking Japan by storm, but the thing that many of these fans don't realize is that the version they're watching is quite different from the product kids in Japan got.

The purpose of this section is to document all these changes that were made during the transition from the Japanese Pocket Monsters to the show we English speakers know as Pokémon.  What follows is a list of each of the fan-designated sagas of the TV series, as well as a list of the various other animated products produced for this franchise.  Clicking on a link will bring you to a list of episodes in those sagas that will then bring you to essays detailing every rewrite, cut, redrawn scene, music edit, and other change that's been made.
