Pokemon launched a multi-million dollar franchise on both sides of the pacific, and the episodes have continued non-stop since the 90s. Take a look back at those episodes as well as what’s new!

What’s on the Pokemon Episode Order?


Many are revisiting the old anime Pokemon show. The show has run continuously since 1997 to the present, so that can be a bit daunting if you don’t know what you’re getting into. This Pokemon episode order hopes to help you figure out where to start. This timeline includes all of the seasons for the Pokemon anime, as well as all of the films. Note: Some of the films don’t really exist in continuity, though they are placed here anyway. The first film, at least, is definitely a part of continuity.

Where do I start watching Pokemon?

The easiest place to start is right at the beginning with Indigo League. This is the start of the show, and introduces you to the original 150 Pokemon also found in the original game and in Pokemon Go. You should watch that entire series and the first film. Then if you want to continue after that you can. However, since that’s a lot of episodes, and some can be harder to find, you can always jump ahead. We recommend jumping forward to XY if you want to skip.

4 thoughts on “Pokemon Episode Order Timeline

  1. If you did not know Rob Letterman is directing a Detective Pikachu movie staring Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds but are you going to put this film in the Pokemon games timeline or the Pokemon Episode order timeline?

  2. Do you think if Detective Pikachu does good it will start a new continuity of live action movies? I think that would be cool if done right.

    1. It would be great if it did, but it won’t. At least in my opinion. I consider myself a fairly big Pokemon fan. Somewhere in between a casual fan and a complete Pokémon Nerd. That being said I had never heard of Detective Pikachu nor have pretty much anyone else who I have spoken too. Obviously we were able to go away and look it up but its still an odd choice for a first movie. In Japan I think it will be very popular but the rest of the world won’t do so well. It wont be a complete bomb. Enough fans will be curious enough to prop up the box office sales. But I am not expecting many to go and see it twice.
