These came out recently in New Zealand. Did anyone purchase them themselves?. They are quite good. But they cut out the pokeraps. Which is a shame. It says, "Coming up are the pokeraps!" and then nothing happens. Which is a shame

quite cheap as well. Was expecting them to be a bit more expensive. Don't know if they will bring out the other seasons.

How much did they cost you? I need both the Orange Islands and all of Johto (This'll get me started on that) to finish the Original Series so I'm actually interested in this. It shouldn't cost more than $150 so I think I have enough for it.

Anybody else see the irony of putting Brock on the Orange Islands boxart?

I saw that as well. Maybe they meant to put Tracy instead. To answer the OP I have yet to purchase it, I currently watch it online though.

I think they put Brock on the season 2 cover because the first few episodes on that set have Brock in it. Because series 1 continued onto that box set. Because the box sets only have 52 episodes on the disks, they carry onto the next box set



They are bringing out the next 2 seasons next year. The DVD's cost around $37. Not too bad I guess for 6 disks! I got them on a kiwi site called mightyape.

Only $37? That's wonderful. Thank you so much for posting this stuff. I'll see if I can order them right away.

Do the currency conversion as well (probably even cheaper for you) . I don't know if they send to the USA

Are they going to be released in the UK? I currently watch online but I'd love the DVDs.

I really need to import those too because Viz is squatting on their license and not listening to the increasing demand for Johto box sets along with reissuing Master Quest. Only complaint is that they might not work on some hardware DVD players in the US even if they are all region because some have a PAL TV system lockout including the one I have access to here which is a JVC three disc changer from 2001 that was really high end when it was brand new. I already have all the Kanto box sets along with the Orange Islands set but would otherwise have to deal with scalpers to get the region 1 NTSC Master Quest sets.

I don't know if they will be released in the UK. I ordered season 4 and 5, they just came out.

As did I season 5 is on its way from Australia as I type this. Also got an all region DVD player as well which I tested with PAL discs and they play without a problem. The fact that Magna Pacific actually listens to this stuff (unlike Viz) is huge because they released the complete original series!

I still haven't watched season yet. There are so many episodes to watch, i'm still on season 4. Like your avatar nickstr. I Love Misty :)

Thanks, so do I she just seems so beautiful to me er back on topic. The discs arrived on Friday and I am impressed but slightly disappointed that it was the official season and not the complete Master Quest one as I hate Advanced Generation and will not buy the season 6 set even for the last 12 episodes especially since I would most likely not be able to resell the unwanted discs. The quality is better than some were saying it would be and I did not notice any motion blurring or other NTSC to PAL conversion artifacts.

Becky

Yes, she is. I agree. I thought the quality was pretty good too. I hate how the episodes of one season go onto another box set. What did your box sets look like? . Same as mine?

So far I've seen up to Advanced Challenge in stores. I hope to buy them when I get some money. But I've only seen them for about $43-$50

The Master Quest box set I got is identical, weird disc holders and all it took me a while to figure out how to take the discs out and put them in.

Becky

Oh yes, my mum had to go back to the shop to find out how to take them out!
We were humilated when we found out to take them out.
It's really awkward. You have to push the disk down and up. Strange.
Season 6 and 7 is due for release next month. They are a tiny bit more expensive than the other seasons

I had to do that myself because I don't know of anyone else outside of New Zealand or Australia who has even seen those box sets. It was not that hard to figure out in the least after I looked at the disc holders carefully.

Did you order them off the website I ordered them from?

I got them from EzyDVD out of Adelaide but sadly the shipping was fairly expensive as you would expect in the case of international.

I actually asked some questions to someone from NZ about these box sets so I may as well ask on here so this is just a copy of my PM from before.

I live in the UK so buying the dvds you will have will work as they are PAL, but as im really picky with my dvd releases, such as I can see box set one is only half of season 1 and then the other half they call it season 2 and name th ebox Orange Islands when it hasn't finished season 1, just annoys me and on what I can gather from the net most episodes from each box is in the wrong place but anywho if i just try to ignore that as these box sets will be the best than region 1 as you may know Region 1 has not re-released S3/4 on to box sets and 5/6/ may be discontinued by now and season 7/8 needs to be released on box sets etc., it's just alot of hassle.

so my questions are,

does Season 1 inc, the eye catch who's that Pokemon?

is the pokerap/jukebox at the end of each episode?

does every episode have the intro and credits - such as on Season 2 region 1,
the first two discs were like this, Opening > Episode 1 part a > part b > Episode 2 part a > part b > Episode 3 part a etc,etc. till the credits come at the end, which was slightly silly and annoying.

Thanks for your time for reading this and hope you can answer these silly questions, and do you know where would be the best place for me to get these by importing.

I don't think that Pikachu's Jukebox is included on these unlike the region 1 NTSC discs. Depending on your player it should be possible to play NTSC discs and have them converted for display on a PAL television set especially if its all region. I have such a player that converts PAL to NTSC and works exceptionally well. Also got the season 3 and 4 box sets which seem to be nice as well in quality although I heard one person say that the episodes are 700 MB a piece on the discs and they usually see that as a bad sign.

No, 'Who's that Pokemon' isn't on the disks. Although, there a couple random moments where it pops up. It only saw it once or twice.
One episode had 'Who's that Pokemon'?. But they never said what Pokemon it was. Intentional...or error?

The Jukebox was on the end of some episodes I think, In season 1. They kept playing the same songs over and over again. It got a little annoying.
The Pokerap isn't on any of the episodes.

As for the opening..yeah. Every episode has the opening and there are credits.

8, 9 and 10 are due to release soon

The DP series is what I would get and prob the Indigo League since I remember when the first episode aired here in America.
