    In the US it comes on at 8:30 in the morning!
    Ain't no body got time for that.

    But seriously. I use "other means" to watch it, just because i'm not going to wake up for that.
    What about you? Are any of you guys crazy enough to get up that early?

    Heh heh, "that early."

    I think I wake up at, like, between 12 and 2, then I wake up again sometime between 3:30 and 5, or something stupid like that. X_x I'm usually still awake by 8:30, so I watch it when it comes on.

    You think that's bad? The Japanese episodes air at 6:30 am here. And I'll only wake up for those episodes if it looks really, really good.

    I usually wake up early on Saturdays, so I could catch Pokemon if I wanted to.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Oh, I wake up at 5 to catch the Japanese episodes, 8:30 wouldn't be that bad. But I didn't do it for the last one because it looked boring.

    lol, that is worse. I never even try to wake up. I just wait until a site has uploaded it.

    I wonder how many people wake up for the Japanese one.

    I'm usually up by then, but I DVR the show anyway because it's simpler and because that way I can skip the ads.

    Since I used to wake up at 7 in the morning to watch Diamond and Pearl, I would have no problem watching Black and White at 8:30.
    I just haven't been watching the BW dub all that much because I've already seen the episodes in Japanese already (with DP I only watched the dub) and sometimes I'm just not feeling like watching the anime at that time, but I get to it later and just watch a bunch of episodes in a row.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    I'm usually awake a little bit before 8:30AM on a Saturday morning, so I have no problems with watching it at that time. I would watch the new DP episodes that aired at 7AM with no problem. Even with little sleep, it doesn't take me too long to wake up and I'm a morning person anyway. All things considered, the show does have a reasonable premiere timeslot for Saturday morning.

    I don't; it's a little too early for me. While I do like to be up early, I tend to go to bed late so that makes it hard for me to wake up on time. D: Unfortunately that especially excludes waking for the Japanese episodes since they air even earlier in my timezone.

    Yup, I'm crazy enough. BUT it really depends on what episode it is. I keep in touch with the current episodes, so if I know it's going to be a dubbed filler I won't bother to watch until it's up online and I'm terribly bored. But if it's one where an old character returns- like the upcoming Dawn episodes- then yes, I'll definitely give up the time to sleep in! XD

    Well I used to wake up at 7 when I was a kid to watch the new Pokemon episodes, so if these younguns are half as dedicated as we used to be then they should have no trouble seeing the episodes :P

    Actually Pokemon is typically at or near the top of Cartoon Network's Saturday morning routine.

    I never watch it on TV anymore. Not since the 90's. I just find a site and watch them online nowadays.

    I actually stay up for those since it comes on on 5:00am central time.
