The Americans got an episode today which has an entire village of Wobbuffet.

Meanwhile, up in Canada, YTV gives us an episode that has Bellossom and James in tights.

I think I'm about to be ill.

Who cares. That episode has already been played for us Canucks.

Doesn't matter to me though, I get both the WB and YTV, thanks to my living on near the border and I have digital cable, ^_^

You think it sucks being Canadian?

Think again. Being a Swede is, by far, much worse.

TV4, which airs all the pokémon episodes, never aired the 11(!) last episodes of Orange League, then they changed their broadcasting schedule so that Pokémon now airs at 07.55 in the morning >_<

But there's more to come: They say they'll skip 26 episodes (WTF?!) in order to catch up with the US broadcasting schedule.

OrientalNoodle's problem with one missing episode pales in comparison.

YTV is a really big pain when it comes to broadcasting Pokémon, that's what I can say. I stopped watching it on YTV because:

1) They're hopelessly behind (I think the last episode aired in Canada is the one with Skiploom in it), and it will be months before they catch up (They're replaying early Johto episodes)
2) Their schedule is really subject to change. One week it was new, rerun, new, rerun, and another rerun. The next it was all new, and the one after that is all rerun.
3) Their weekend run is not that much better.

All the more reason to watch it on the WB here in Canada (and you do have two feeds), for those of you with cable or satellite, and with the return of Static Shock, I won't have to worry about waking up at six AM to watch Pokémon.

The most recent episode that YTV has showed was the Ecruteak gym battle. They've shown 26 episodes from the current season. I checked an online TV guide, and it looks like we're getting reruns for at least another two weeks.

(BTW, while looking through said guide, saw a listing for a Pokemon episode called "Mountain Time". Not being able to remember that one, I checked the plot synopsis, and read "Ash's team makes a new friend, but Team Rocket ruins the day." Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that apply to almost every Pokemon episode?)

I've got a gripe about KidsWB's false advertising. They make a big deal about a "3-part search for Articuno" and then the first two episodes have almost nothing to do with it!! I'd also like to remind AshCo that they've already seen Articuno...

And Frogjedi speaks the truth.

YTV is finally showing new episodes! Woohoo!

Unfortunately, the only one I've had a chance to watch (the Yanma ep) really sucked.

First, I haven't made it a point to watch the show for months now, and I've still seen the Wobbuffet village ep twice. (I also saw the one where they introduced the concept of Mirror Coat AND gave a decent reason as to why Wobbuffet was Countering Thunderbolt; and then saw them bone it by saying Poison was an Elemental attack. ;_;)

Second, yes, Sugar is very hot. You, sir, get a 5.

Third...
