Missing Episodes

Dawn’s New Journey! / Pewter City Gym – The Greatest Danger!: These two episodes pick up with Dawn and Brock in their respective regions and show how both are doing in their new roles. No real reason has been given for not releasing these episodes in English though it could be due to the fact that they might confuse viewers who were expecting to watch an episode of Pokemon Black and White. Both of these episodes used the opening and closing credits from the previous season.

Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma! (Part 1) / Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma! (Part 2): These two episodes were unaired in Japan due to the Fukushima earthquake and nuclear disaster and remain unaired to this day even outside Japan despite featuring the introduction of a major city and the villainous Team Plasma.

If I Could Only Watch One…

  • …Episode I would watch Episode 1: In the Shadow of Zekrom!. Not only is it a great introduction to the new region, Pokemon and characters (all sporting complete redesigns from this episode onwards!) but it’s one of the best animated episodes of the series and really takes the show in a bold new direction. There’s also some great music and a dramatic appearance by one of the Unova regions most powerful Legendary Pokemon, Zekrom.
