    I wonder how many people wake up for the Japanese one.
    I actually stay up for those since it comes on on 5:00am central time.
    lol, that's pretty late.

    Diamond and Pearl airs at 8-30 on Sundays
    Black and White airs at 7-00.

    No, Australia doesn't get Rival Destinies yet, but it should air soon, since the Junior Battle Tournament arc just finished, and Ash is nearly at Nimbasa City.

    All Eeveelutions are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    When I was younger I would watch it on TV on KidsWB and CN until the DP series.

    Recently got back into it, and I usually record it on my DVR and watch them later. If I'm awake at at 7:30 (the time it's on here in Missouri) , I will watch it , but usually I watch my recording or a stream.

    When I stayed in the US a few years ago, I got up early on a Saturday morning, got my cereal bowl and watched Pokemon Galactic Battles when it aired.

    ... I stopped watching it when my dad started to make fun of me for watching pokemon.

    Anyways, I don't know exactly when they air the episodes dubbed in my country. Ever since Pokemon moved to cable, it became hard to watch when it airs a new episode. All I get is reruns whenever I DO get to watch it by chance - the most appalling was OS episodes reruns because I thought they had disappeared.

    The rare chances I get to watch BW in my mother tongue... I face-palm every time Cilan does his "It's TASTING TIME!" because the dub voice actor did a horrible job and he sounds less-than-enthusiastic about "tasting".


    As for the Japanese episodes, I couldn't find any channel that will air it. Anime channels, Japanese channels - I went through all the programs, and I couldn't find a channel where they air Pokemon in Japanese.

    Pretty ironic since there's a separate anime channel where they air a lot of recent anime with SUBS. I don't know why they don't air Pokemon like that. Maybe it's because a channel had bought something like a "right to air alone" or something.


    Nowadays, I just watch them on the Internet.

    I usually wake up for them on weekdays at 8, but I don miss a few sometimes. It's fine on weekends- Rival destinies comes on a 11 on CITV.

    Yes, I do. Gotta wake up a bit early on Saturdays anyway to do a little house cleaning. :D Though I just don't really watch reruns anymore. I just use DVDs for that.

    However, I always catch the newest Japanese episodes at a later time.

    I stay up until 6:30 am so I can watch when it airs in Japan on Thursday mornings at 6 am, but when I was a kid I used to wake up at 6 am to watch it on TV before school.

    I don't keep track of the dub, though. The last time I purposely got up for the dub was the Archen episode and that was like over a year ago XD I'll watch it if I'm already up, though.
    I hear them coming for me, because the top is lonely

    I haven't watched the episodes the day they air in the USA since 2001 (had been since 1998). After that, I stopped watching the show completely until season 7. Then, I would watch it after I got home from school on a Cartoon Network block called Miguzi, that lasted until the voice cast switched. Then an angry younger me boycotted the show for a couple of years. Now I do watch the show, but never on TV.

    Instead, thanks to the miracle of eBay and importing from Australia, I now watch the first 13 seasons on DVD and will wait until 14+ is available on DVD before I really watch Unova's era.

    Top game series: Pokémon, Mass Effect, Mario, Sonic, Batman Arkham, Ace Combat, Forza, GTA, Sly Cooper, etc

    I don't think the show still airs on TV in my country anyway, so I am pretty much forced to use "other means".
