Season chronology

This is a list of episodes in Pokémon: The Johto Journeys, the third season of the Pokémon animated series (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā?, Pocket Monsters), covering the further adventures of series protagonist Ash Ketchum as he travels to Johto with Brock and Misty and meets new friends.

The third season of Pokémon originally aired in Japan from October 1999 to July 2000 on TV Tokyo and originally in the United States from October 2000 to May 2001 on the WB Television Network.

The Japanese opening song is "OK" by Rica Matsumoto. The ending songs are "Meowth's Party" by Inuko Inuyama, Megumi Hayashibara, and Shin'ichiro Miki, "Exciting Pokemon Relay" by Rikako Aikawa, and "Takeshi's Paradise" by Yuji Ueda. The English opening song is "Pokemon Johto" by PJ Lequerica.


Pokémon Karaokémon as seen at the end of every episode.

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 The WB Television Network or on Cartoon Network. (Other English-speaking nations largely followed either this order or the Japanese order). This series uses game music from Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Gold and Silver. Subsequent airings of the English version follow the original Japanese order, except in the case of episodes which are no longer shown in English. In Japan, these episodes, and the episodes of the subsequent seasons until the change to the "Advanced Generation" subtitle, were subtitled Gold-Silver Chapter (金銀編 Kin-Gin Hen?). The segment used at the end of the episode is now called "Pokémon Karaokémon" instead of "Pikachu's Jukebox" and this time, it include five songs from Totally Pokémon.

The series, in English, was released on 51 VHS and DVD volumes by Pioneer and Viz Video,[1][2] On May 30, 2014, Viz Media announced via Facebook they would finally be re-releasing the Johto Journeys and that a complete box set was released in the USA on November 10, 2015.

In the US, the remaining 11 episodes of Adventures in the Orange Islands share the same season as this. (Season 2 ends off on Charizard Chills.) This is due to the 52-episode limit preventing these episodes from being aired as apart of US season 2.
