    Pokémon gone from Fall KidsWB LineUp on "The CW"

    Guess Eric Stuart was right...

    Shock. This...barely makes sense. Pokemon was still the highest rated show on KidsWb's Saturday mornings.

    Erm, since Pokemon USA is going ahead with Season 9, I guess they have confirmation that the show will be moving to another channel? They wouldn't be dubbing the show if it wasn't going to still air on TV.
     
  3. Well Yu-gi-oh (the non-GX series) is about to finish in both UK and US so I guess it doesn't matter too much that is going since if you think about it the Oirginal does seem more popular than GX. But if GX isn't showing in America I have my doubts about it showing the UK :/

    So our there any other channels that show Pokemon in the US or any channel that might pick up these dropped shows? Wow if there aren't that means the dub will lose a major part of its audience if it just shows in UK (if Toonami or Sky get round to getting new ones), rest of Europe (I think it only shows in the UK in Europe though :/) and Australia (they are watching AG right?).

    Interesting though.

    Pokemon could either move to 4kidsTV or Cartoon Network. Basically its only options.

    I doubt it'll move to 4kidsTV to be honest with you

    After 4kids dumped the anime, I agree too.

    So, would Pokemon USA be dubbing the show for direct to DVD releases? I mean, if Season 9 is already being dubbed, they gotta know it'll air on a channel somewhere right?

    My bet is Cartoon Network to be honest with you, and not straight to DVD as that isn't a profitable business for a series to be...they have to air on tv to make money
     
  8. Falling ratings?! You MUST be kidding!;_; I'm calling a move to Cartoon Network as well--they've shown Kanto to Johto reruns before...no reason to not have it on the Miguzi block, or even Toonami.:)

    I'm guessing Cartoon Network either on Meguzi or perhaps the 7:00 or 7:30 slot of Toonami.

    Well CN already shows Yugioh GX so I'll go with CN probably picking up Pokemon also. I'm surpised that KidsWB is actually dropping Pokemon since it pretty much anchored their Saturday morning lineup and still has a steady fanbase. Well I'll be curious to see how they do this fall since WB producded shows never seem to have long lifespans since the quality is just so lousy.

    There goes my reason for watching the WB.

    I wonder if it wasn't forced upon them to get rid of the show versus them deciding to axe it themselves. It just doesn't make sense to get rid of the cash cow that is Pokemon.

    I really hope that CN won't air a new episode every night, because that would suck, since I have to go with my Dad on Mondays and Tuesdays and he won't let me watch it. Why isn't the new station airing Pokemon?!?!?!?!?!? I really hope there is an alternative station rather then CN. It would be cool if CN aired a new episode once a week, like on Fridays, that would be the absolute best day.

    I hope that the Cartoon Network doesn't pick up the new Pokemon. I don't get that channel. I can't see ABC Kids picking it up but maybe the FoxBox? It does have lots of anime.

    Yup. They just went straight to the theme song with old episodes. Why do they have to completely **** up the entire dub?? WHY?

    Maybe it's part of the Anti-Anime movement started by Christians...who knows? And we all know that ratings for both Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh haven't been failing.

    Well, I guess that I'm going to have to look up the epi pics and sypnosis for every episode that I haven't seen yet since I no longer will be able to watch the dub. Of coarse, I can also just download the ones coming out after that in Japanese. If the dub is going to be on CN, and airing on a weekday, then I most likely won't watch the anime, maybe I'll tape it from my Moms and watch the episode when I get back from my Dad's, because doesn't CN air new episodes on Monday?

    EDIT: They air new episodes on Friday, right? I don't think that includes anime like Pokemon, but MAYBE I have a chance!!!
