Want to talk about a specific episode or arc and can't find the thread? Have no fear, the Episode Index is here! This list is separated primarily into English Dub & Japanese broadcast listings, then by season. Recent movies will be listed with the saga they belong to. Older movies should be discussed in the thread dedicated to the season they aired with.
If there is not a designated thread for the episode(s) you wish to discuss, please feel free to create one using the proper format. Refer to the Episode Discussion Procedures below if you wish to do this. If you have further questions about this, please PM EternallyAnna.
Please keep in mind that all PokéCommunity Rules and Pokémon Anime Rules do apply here, excepting the 30-day revival rule. Threads which are exempt from the revival rule are the stickied Series Discussion threads, recent and upcoming movie threads, and any thread with "Review" in the title that does not have a corresponding Saga thread.
If you are looking for episode titles and their respective threads, then please take a look at the Episode Index in the posts below- this thread will be kept updated with all upcoming English dub titles and Japanese titles for Best Wishes onward.
Not everyone follows up on the Japanese episodes of the Pokémon Anime, so discussions can spoil things for those who prefer to watch the English dub. Therefore it is absolutely required that you use the [Spoilers] prefix that is provided when you create an episode thread. Following that, I would like your post title to be simply: XY 003 Discussion
When it comes to episodes that take place for more than two episodes (League & Tournament arcs; multi-part finales), we will create one big thread to discuss all titles and events that go with it. This will create less clutter and also keep the level of avoiding spoilers at a higher rate. Just create a thread using the [Spoilers] prefix followed by the name of the arc such as "Donamite Discussion" or "Episode N Finale Discussion".
Threads on upcoming movies should use the provided [Spoilers] tag. The title should include the movie number and either the movie subject or title. Examples: M15 - Kyurem VS the Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo Movie 16: Genesect and Mewtwo
These threads can be made as soon as episode/movie titles are announced and will be used for speculation and discussion until the English dub airs.
Dubbed episodes are the simple ones. Once a dubbed episode is aired in the USA, a review thread can be created. Prefixes will not be used for these threads. There is only one format for the title- "Episode Name" Review Thread. Example: "Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!" Review Thread. These threads should only be made for the currently airing series. Older sagas have their own all-encompassing threads as listed below.
Series Discussion Threads
Original Series Discussion
This thread covers dub seasons 1-5, which is the entirety of Ash's journeys through Kanto, the Orange Islands, and Johto. It also covers movies 1-5 (Mew VS Mewtwo - Pokémon Heroes).
Diamond & Pearl Discussion
This thread covers series 10-13 (Sinnoh era journeys) and movies 10-13 (The Rise of Darkrai - Zoroark: Master of Illusions).
Feel free to bring up whatever comments you have about any of the episodes in their respective threads. It'd be nice to respond to other people's comments as well, but since most won't be watching the same things at the same time, don't worry too much about it.
I think that pretty much covers it all for here, but if you may have any questions, then please feel to PM EternallyAnna or post in the FAQ & Simple Help Thread.

Note: Numbers and titles here match Bulbapedia listings as of 12 March 2013. Individual thread titles may not coincide due to the unaired Rocket vs Plasma episodes and speculative titles. Warning: Most of these threads are not current and are used only as reference. Please use the dub-titled review thread for an episode if you would like to make a comment, even if you are watching in Japanese. If there is not a dub review thread and the dubbed episode has aired, please create one. This is to separate speculation from review and also to keep latecomers in one thread. If outdated speculation threads are posted in, they will be locked as per the normal 30-day-revival rule. Dub review threads are exempt from the 30-day-revival rule.
