Just to make it clear, I've swapped the fields in the table above, so it's easier to see:
    • Where the information is currently
    • Where it should be

Code: Select all

+--------------+--------------+
| TVDB episode | Real episode |
| S14 E01-E48  | S14 E01-E48  |
| S14 E49-E84  | S15 E01-E36  |
| S15 E01-E13  | S15 E37-E49  |
| S15 E14-E38  | S16 E01-E25  |
| S15 E39-E58  | S16 E26-E45  |
| S16 E01-E48  | S17 E01-E48  |
| S16 E49-E92  | S18 E01-E45  |
| S17 E01-E40  | S19 E01-E40  |
| S17 E41-E49  | S19 E41-E49  |  # Needs updated to English titles
| S18 E01-E23  | S20 E01-E23  |
+--------------+--------------+


Once this mess is sorted out, we should be able to continue with the other updates, which include:
    • Correcting Special listings
    • Fixing absolute order discrepancies
    • New episodes
    • Season imagery

Do we think this will get fixed?

I'm under the impression that this will not get fixed. I recently read this thread:

viewtopic.php?t=27677

And it look like because

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encycl ... 91&page=25

has everything listed in one giant season that's just the way things are going to be. Could someone please confirm this? If that's the rule I under stand, it's just very confusing when every other English source say there are more seasons.

I've commented on another topic (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=39181&p=118274#p118274) that some episodes have the wrong air date, they have american airdate instead of japanese and that makes that some seasons don't make sense chronologically.
Besides, the movies and specials are positioned after the wrong episode

My understanding is that, due to the amount of work that was reverted when this series was left unlocked, the current dates are staying in place until the new site is fully deployed (as it should be possible to restrict editing the airdates without necessarily locking the entire series).
Strangers are just the friends we haven't met yet.

I am new to the forums here so forgive me for not knowing this, but when will the new site be fully deployed? Also I will have to tend to agree with what seems to be the majority of the users posting here that it is 20 seasons instead of the 18 that is currently shown. On the other sites that I have been searching on for references it shows 20 seasons (links included below).

even on the pokemon website

Can I bump this, I can’t believe this still isn’t fixed. Literally every official list has the 21 seasons. Even freaking amazon has it correct. Please fix it.

I want to Bump this one again. All the sites have season 14-20 instead of how TVDB has it set up. Can the seasons after season 14 please be fixed?

Just comparing with http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?sh ... e&aid=9956 as I can't read the info here: http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/pokemon ... index.html
and http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-episo ... v-seasons/ wouldn't be used in this case
it looks like the confusion is that they aren't using real season numbers (as is the case sometimes with anime) and rather titling the series something new each time.
The wiki does the best job of showing the time line of the series here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pokémon_(anime)#TV_series
I'd use that time line and use something like aniDB for episodes.
As this is locked we'll have to wait for a mod, such as yourself.

Actually, if we go by that listing, there are technically 22 Seasons.
Best Wishes / Black & White, XY, Sun and Moon chapters are all combined in rather strange fashion.

I'm not acting because I genuinely don't know what to make of this. :?

It's not that we don't know the existing listing is deficient, it's more that every source we have says something different about what's correct.
