No. This is actually exactly why the series is locked.
Original host nation controls the first-aired listing.
For Pokemon, that is Japan; the relevant site being TV Tokyo.

ANN is the best, single mirror of that information: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclo ... 91&page=25
Renumbering to S16E49 - S16E92 should pull the correct information, but check that they line up.
The math isn't quite adding up for me.

SO far as I can tell the Japanese site gives no season listing. So despite the fact that we have tv.com, the american pokemon site, and tvguide.com all giving info on a season 18 you have decided to go with an Animenewsnetwork. Why don't you just post the other info and pull the airdates from the Japanese or anime site?

My mistake for not linking to the "correct" season page:
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid ... 6297&lid=7

What you - and others - refer to as Season 18 per the 4Kids / TPCI domestic releases originated as the second half of Season 16 on TV Tokyo. We're already pulling the correct dates from both that and ANN for verification, and their translation logs haven't yet missed the mark.

http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/pokemon_xy/episodes/
Those titles match the LID=25 / Japanese listings 1:1, then the English titles are matched to those.

As an aside, it's incredibly disrespectful to discard primary source information because you don't read the language. It's 2016 and gTranslate is usable now. That's all I have to say on that matter.

Here's that PM, dwizard0:
I used Chrome to translate the page and didn't see any season information. You are quite the jerk. All i did was ask why you wouldn't use the other sources of information. You are exceedingly disrespectful and I'm sorry I had the unfortunate luck of dealing with you instead of someone levelheaded who could have answered without name calling and acting like a child.
My reply:
...and now the forums will get to see you as you really are. If you're just going to use PMs to harass and insult me, they won't remain private. I swing that kind of lumber.
Xenophobia has no place here.
If your sole comeback is that only the U.S. order matters, you can leave yourself, or I can help you find the door.

EDIT: Also, you've been incredibly disrespectful to myself, TV Tokyo, and pretty much anyone who enjoys Pokémon outside of the U.S. If you cannot deal with simple facts, that's not my problem.
