And everything from the Orange Islands to Battle Frontier is forgotten. :/

The good stuff, the yup. Sad

But this is great news because my little handicap brother loves Pokemon and has been waiting for Netflix to get it sense we first got Netflix 2 years ago or so.
He will be very pleased. Smile

Nothing on a subtitled release?

I do think Nintendo and The Pokémon Company would have been better off taking all the rights back and offering an enhanced version of their Pokémon TV app on 3DS and Wii U.

Considering the huge difference in Pokémon names, character names and changes between the original and dubbed versions, one will most likely never happen.

I watched all of Indigo League several years ago and have been waiting for someone to stream The Orange Islands arch for a while now outside of the Pokemon website which only shows a hand full of episodes at a time. Hopefully if this does well we could get some more on Netflix (don't like watching anime on Hulu).

Interested in checking out the Victini and Reshiram movies. The theater I worked at had a box of goody bags from the film because we got them after our screenings so I have a few of those in my room even though I never got to see it.

It would be great to at least get some of the movies as bilingual releases.

Mewtwo Strikes Back is much better in Japanese. The English dub doesn't even get the moral right.
