Hi,

Currently Pokemon is split into 16 seasons which contradicts Pokemon's own website http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-episo ... v-seasons/.

Episodes 14x49 through 15x13 should be a separate season.

Cheers.

I really hate to tell you this, but the U.S. Pokémon site will never be taken as gospel for the original Japanese series. That's one of the many reasons why the series is presently locked.

That's understandable, is there any source for the current split as it doesn't fit with the seasons eg the openings/DVD break up?

Not sure, this happened largely before I frequented this site, but I believe we started from this ANN listing and followed the series links after Season 5.
Could this be inaccurate, sure, but it's currently the best we have for the original airing data.

At issue here is the rebranded seasons that Pocket Monsters got when it aired domestically as Pokémon.
To that end, we align with the original seasons, which are presently best reflected by the listing linked to above.

US airings split one if the recent seasons into two parts, prior to that pretty much everything synced up. I believe you can blame cartoon network for your woes but as has already been said our listing is correct per the original airing station in the country of origin.

It actually could use some work, as a number of those airdates are KidsWB / CN listings.

Gah.. one time long ago I fixed all the air dates for the whole series then it got left unlocked. Suffice to say I'm not doing it again. Lol.

Maybe it gets fixed with the Japanese title additions, who's to say? ;)

Realigned S01 and added Japanese titles.
How far does this jackassery go...?

ANN Listing.
Did minimal title editing; primarily used for dates and Japanese titles (a couple of which may not be quite right, I'll review later).
