UK Toonami overtakes KWB

Not a double post because the last time I posted was 2 days ago here.

5pm Monday - Friday for Advanced Battle? Toonami have put on the synopsis "Ash, Brock and May continue their adventure around Hoenn." (or something like that) so there's no way to tell which episode is on on what day.

I'm not happy about Toonami getting it full stop. I hate the fact that there are gonna be new episodes on weekdays, I'm busy so I won't see them all. I hope they repeat quite a lot like Chronicles. Perfection was a Sunday morning at 10am watching new episodes on Sky Mix, this just sucks.

I liked having one new episode a week because it spread it out over the year and didn't give us a huge gap (well, there was the gap during the Verdanturf Pokemon Contest which was just random) now if Toonami air one new episode a day for 5 days a week then the series is gonna have aired within no time at all and we are gonna be without new episodes for ages.

Just when I thought Sky were at their worst they don't purshase Advanced Battle, I'm not a happy bunny about this...
Wait before you comment, because it could be for the first week only -_- Besides, Pokemon is one of Toonami's most successful shows.

If you read the rest of the thrad, you'll realise they're only airing new eps from Mon-Wed. Toonami repeat them at weekends, 7:00pm on weekdays and on Destination:Friday.

The reason they're not on weekends is because Toonami is trying to attract kids aged 6-11 to watch the show. Thy could not give a monkeys if anyone over 11 doesn't watch it, as they're not trying to pull in the ratings for that demographic. But, as it's been said before, Pokemon is Toonami's best loved show (apart from possibly Teen Titans and Xiaolin Showdown, which have both migrated to Cartoon Network), so they'll probably repeat them ever more times than what I've said.

Further proof of scheduling: Go to Sky's website and click TV Guide. Go to Toonami and work your way through the week. Pokemon Advanced only Mon-Wed. Xiaolin Showdown airs in the slot Thur-Fri.

because Destination Friday only has pokemon, not AB and on the monday and tuesday eps only it says 'new series'

I love it being on weekdays!

what is more relaxing then coming home from a hard day at school, to slob out on your sofa and watch your favourate anime?

Mon-Wed

Sky's guide is wrong - Go to http://europe.turnerinfo.com, go to Toonami, Schedules, then go to Fri 14. D:F is Pokemon Advanced Battle for an hour and a half, indicating three new episodes. Firther proof? Go to Monthly Schedules -> This month, and search through this week of Mon 10-Fri 14.

Sky isn't always right, it screws itself up for certain things, so if it's wrong on the website, it'll be wrong on the box as well.

Can somebody give me an indication of how PAB episodes have been aired already?

I'm home at the weekends and it is the only place where I have access to Sky (and thus Toonami of course), my brother needs to know so he has an idea of what episodes on tomorrow so he can tape it. Although I can actually get home at around 3pm on fridays, incase of any new episodes which I can see for myself.

PAB also gets played at the weekends, twice on saturdays and twice on sundays, they'll be repeats wont they?

So far the fist two episodes have been shown and they will probablyt air the third one today (Wednesday). Hopefully this will be a continuing pattern.

Well showing 6 or whatever episodes a week is a bit moronic so.....yeah fairly.

EDIT: Also never trust Sky when it comes to names and descriptions, I'll give you some proof:

Pokemon Advance Challenge: "Love at first Flight" Jigglypuff always puts Pokemon to sleep with it's singing, so its suprised when Whismur can stay awake. (something along those lines)

Pokemon Adavnce Challenge: "Lights Camerupt Action" Ash, May, Max and Brock learn about the legendary pokemon Kyrouge and Groudon. (thats the gist of it, ntohing about films)

There are way more my friends. Also once reffering Brwaly as a girl LOL!

There appears to be 3 new episodes per week on Toonami.

This week was:
Monday - "Clamperl of Wisdom"
Tuesday - "The Relicanth Really Can!"
Wednesday - "The Evolutionary War!"

Next week (beginning 17/10/05):
Monday - "Training Wrecks!"
Tuesday - "Gaining Groudon!"
Wednesday - "The Scuffle of Legends"

I'll check for repeats on Friday and post.

FHN over and out!

EDIT:
On Saturday and Sunday there is Pokemon Advanced Battle on at 10:00am and 4:30pm but it doesn't have a real episode synopsis (yeah...what's new?). It said after PAB today that the next episode will be on Monday so I think these are repeats.
The only problem is that 3 doesn't go into 2 :S I think they may repeat Monday's and Tuesday's episodes. I guess we will just have to wait and find out.

I guess we're gonna be WAY ahead of them. Good in some ways, not in others...
It's gonna be hard to catch every episode though, I have a filled schedule as it is.

We didn't get Trainer choice today which was annoying, nevermind though, wasn't to hazardous.

Tuesday before I left for college I notoced that at 7:30AM Tuesday they showed "The Relecanth Really Can" odd? that was new for the morning, wonder if it'll be the smae next week. Who can say, despite the bad One Piece Dub thats airing backwards >.< XD, so who knows what Toonami are thinking.

Just remember though people Toonami can only show new episodes as fast as 4kids dubs them.

At this rate we'll finish just after christmas and I doubt 4kids will have finished by then.

Or maybe they have, 4kids Dubbes Yu-Gi-Oh and when Nickolodeon gets that each year they air around four eps a week and finish it quick with no problem.

Do they not dub a whole season in one go then send it off to channels? I thought it would've been a better idea. This would let the channel do whatever they wanted with the episodes, example being here, 3 new episodes a week.

That would have been the logical solution, although I don't think 4kids think outside of the US so to speak (no offence to Americans but that's probably true) and because Kids WB only air weekly they may want to only dub weekly. Weird But we'll see.

But Pokémon Chronicles, that was aired here first and i'm not sure if it has gotten to the US yet.

Yeah, but I'm not sure if that was done specifically for the UK and infact they're are probably planning a release of some sort in the US shortly anyway. My point is is that I doubt 4kids are going to rush dubbing episodes just because Toonami want to air them quickly all of a sudden.

Although you were saying that the likes of Yu-G-Oh are dubbed in a relatively short space of time, so if that is how 4kids operates then you could be right.
