Advanced Battle

This is a list of episodes in Pokémon: Advanced Challenge, the seventh season of the Pokémon animated series (ポケットモンスター, Poketto Monsutā, Pocket Monsters), covering the continuing adventures of series protagonist Ash Ketchum in Hoenn. The seventh season of Pokémon originally aired in Japan from September 2003 to September 2004 on TV Tokyo and originally on U.S. television from September 2004 to September 2005 on The WB Television Network.

The Japanese opening songs are "Advance Adventure" by GARDEN for the first 30 episodes, and "Challenger!!" by Rica Matsumoto. The ending songs are "Polka O Dolka" by Inuko Inuyama and Nolsol Chorus Group for the first 4 episodes, "Because the Sky is There" (for 7 episodes) and "Smile" by Toshiko Ezaki, and "Full of Summer!!" by Naomi Tamura and Himawari Chorus (for 8 episodes). The English opening song is "This Dream" by David Rolfe.

Overview[edit]

The division between seasons of Pokémon is based on the English version openings of each episode and may not reflect the actual production season. The English episode numbers are based on their first airing in the United States either in syndication on Cartoon Network, or on The WB Television Network. (Other English-speaking nations largely followed either this order or the Japanese order.) Subsequent airings of the English version follow the original Japanese order, except in the case of episodes which are no longer shown in English.

This season aired first-run episodes in Japan from September 4, 2003, to September 2, 2004. In the United States, it aired from September 11, 2004, to September 10, 2005. It originally aired as part of the 2004-05 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up.

The series was released on 10 DVD volumes by Viz Media.[1] Viz Media released Pokémon: Advanced Challenge – The Complete Collection on DVD on December 5, 2017.

This season, there is a new mid-episode eyecatch segment known as "Pokémon Trainer's Choice", which is hosted by Ash himself. This segment challenges the viewers to answer questions about the things they covered during the episode instead of identifying the creatures in "Who's that Pokémon?" from the first six seasons. "Pokémon Trainer's Choice" was abandoned at the beginning of the Battle Frontier season.
