Karlie Deonaraine, one of our readers, asked YTV if they would be airing the Pokemon "lost episodes" which aired on Kids WB. Here is an excerpt of YTV's viewer velations department's response.
Although we are aware that some of the "lost" episodes of 'Pokemon have been dubbed and recently aired on Kids WB, YTV has NO plans to air any of these episodes anytime in the near future. We hope you can understand that the 3 lost episodes are not included in our contract for 'Pokemon'. In other words, when YTV bought the rights to air 'Pokemon', our legal agreement with the distributor stated that we would not air those three episodes. The fact that Kids WB aired them does not influence our schedule in anyway as we are not associated with that station and therefore do not act in accordance with them. There is also no way we could obtain copies of the episodes from them as television stations are only licensed to receive programs from a distributor after negotiations have been done.
