CITV To Broadcast Pokemon Origins Next Week


That’s right you are reading it correctly, CITV will be broadcasting the English Dubbed version of Pokemon Origins, which is a 4-part OVA adaptation of the popular Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green/Blue GameBoy Games, next week within the UK.

Each episode will be shown at 7:35am, starting with the first episode on Tuesday 27th May 2014 and ending with the final episode on Friday 30th May. This means that CITV, which is a freeview channel available on Digital TV, Sky and Freesat, will be the first UK based channel to air the series, thus making it a UK debut for Pokemon Origins outside the Pokemon TV App.

But wait there is more, as on Monday 26th May 2014 the CITV channel will be airing back-to-back episodes of Pokemon: Sinoh League Victors from 9am until 1pm.

And finally to top-it-all off CITV will be continuing to show brand new episodes of Pokemon XY: The Series on Saturday and Sunday at 11:35am.

CITV is available on Freeview (Channel 72), Sky (Channel 621) and Freesat (Channel 602).

      First of all its the 6th March 2015 (and not the 6th May 2015); secondly – we don’t know.

      The US has only just started showing Season 2 of Pokemon XY so, judging from past experience, the UK (i.e. CITV) will show all of Pokemon Advanced and then they may move onto the new season of Pokemon XY.

      New Seasons usually start around a ‘fesitive’ period; so maybe CITV are waiting for Easter to show the series.
