Pokemon Origins and Pokemon XY Mega-Evolution Specials To Be Broadcast on CITV This Weekend


It’s time to get your TV’s tuned-in and recorders on stand-by; as this weekend the CITV Channel (Freeview 122, Sky 621 and Freesat 602) will be hosting a Mini Pokemon marathon on both Saturday and Sunday morning.

Starting on Saturday 18th July 2015 at 8:30am the two Mega-Evolution Specials, taken from the Pokemon XY Series, will be shown back-to-back; afterwhich all four episodes of Pokemon Origins, the spin-off series which closely follows the events of the original Pokemon Red videogame, will be shown.

Meanwhile on Sunday 19th July 2015, and once again starting at 8:30am, six episodes from the second season of Pokemon XY: The Series will be shown back-to-back.

If you’ve yet to see any of these episodes, especially the Mega-Evolution and Pokemon Origin specials, then this weekend is the perfect time to watch them.

Pokemon XY: The Series To Resume Broadcast on CITV Next Weekend


It has been awhile but UK Children’s TV Channel CITV will be resuming broadcast of the Pokémon XY TV Series, starting with the very first episode next Saturday.

Starting on Saturday 5th April 2014 at 11:35am will be the first episode of the Pokémon XY TV Series, followed by the second episode on 6th April 2014 at 11:35am, after which one episode will be shown on Saturday’s and Sunday’s at the same time each weekend.

To celebrate the occasion CITV will be re-showing the 16th Pokémon Movie (Pokémon Movie 16: Genesect and the Legend Awakened) on the 5th April 2014 at 10:05am, so if you have yet to see the latest Pokémon movie then this may be your final ‘broadcasting’ chance.

As always CITV is a ‘free-to-view’ channel, meaning you can view it on Freeview (72), Sky (621) and Freesat (602) without having a subscription.
