    Canada and the UK are still sticking to a once-a-week format, with Canada's Teletoon currently four episodes into the dub, and I think CITV in the UK is also airing new episodes once a week.
    Yeah that's BS.

    They should be sticking to the one-episode-a-week format.

      Networks can air their shows in whatever format they want. If the block format release works for them they are going to do it. And with streaming making binge watching more of the norm, it does make sense.

      Jjc has a point. Streaming services like Netflix have been hugely popular for a couple of years now, to the point people love to binge-watch shows. That's likely why Disney XD airs new shows in block formats, since they tend to pick up on what their viewers want.

      I know not everyone likes it, but it's going to be a more common occurrence in the future that we won't be able to stop.

        There's no point in doing that because then it'll go on another ridiculously long hiatus.

        The best way to do it is the one-episode-a-week format. End of story.

          I know I'm probably being stupid in reiterating the same points I made earlier in this thread, but I think TPCI made a huge mistake in granting the Pokémon anime television rights to Disney XD. Assuming they aren't deliberately embargoing new Sun/Moon dub episodes from the US due to geopolitical issues, TPCI would have been better off looking for a syndication distributor to sell the series to first-run syndication, preferably on an once-a-week basis, such as what was done, for example, with the 1991-2001 run of Baywatch or the 1986-99 incarnation of Siskel & Ebert (the Indigo saga's syndicated run would have lasted slightly longer had it not been put into a "strip" (weekday) scheduling format by Summit Media Group-strip syndication only really works well with certain genres such as game shows and talk shows, and prime-time series reruns that have at least 100 episodes available).
          The earlier sagas, from Indigo all the way to XYZ, could be sold in a separate deal (off-network syndication) for local stations to run in a "stripped" scheduling format (such as what many Fox, CW, and MyNetworkTV affiliates do with off-network reruns of popular sitcoms.)
          Of course, my statements above could be all just pipe dreams due to onerous federal restrictions on children's advertising due to the (failed) war on obesity.

          For more on how the US syndication system works, see http://www.museum.tv/eotv/syndication.htm .

            Yet I see no reason why DXD can't just do one episode a week instead of their idiotic BS 'block format'

            In fact... there is no reason for them not to do that.

                I see that date is listed on the Wikipedia article for episode titles but there was no source linked. Is that date posted anywhere else online?

                  Took Disney XD long enough to reveal that date. Course having the show be at the 9:00 AM time slot means I would have to change my schedule for a certain other thing.

                    Serebii has confirmed, as listed above, that Sun and Moon will finally start in America on Disney XD. May 12th shows the 2 episodes already aired and the 3rd will air on May 13th at 9am. I am going to assume that is Eastern Time. Serebii said the usual time, but it was airing at 6am here in TN when CN was showing XY Saga.

                      It is 9 AM eastern time and it'll be a week of New episodes so it'll be caught up with Canada by the 20th

                        Thank you. That is something Serebii didn't mention or not originally. Now I just need to remember to double check if it is set to record and up the amount of episode total to keep.

                          Thanks. 9am is a reasonable timeslot at least. Will the weekday new episodes be on at 9pm et, judging by that's when the first two episodes are reairing on the 12th?

                            So they're doing it in 'block' format huh?

                            I call BS.

                            There is absolutely no reason not to keep it at one new episode a week.

                              We don't know if the block format is how it'll always be. It might be just for the first week since it's the premiere week, and they'll go to once a week Saturday mornings after the first week.

                                I think that's pretty much what'll he happening, plus both Teletoon and Disney XD will both be on episode 10 on the 20th of May and i believe I heard something on toonzone forums about them airing episodes weekly starting the 27th of May.

                                  Hey guys. I have been looking at the calendar today. And although I can't really tell if they are new episodes or not, this is the time of days that Pokemon Sun and Moon are coming on. Forgive if someone has posted the times already.

                                  May 12th - Episodes 1 and 2 - 9pm Eastern
                                  May 13th - Episodes 3 - 9am Eastern
                                  May 14th - Episode 4 - 9am Eastern
                                  May 15th - Episode ? - 4pm Eastern
                                  May 16th - Episode ? - 4pm Eastern
                                  May 17th - Episode ? - 4pm Eastern
                                  May 18th - Episode ? - 4pm Eastern

                                  I can't tell if the 15th - 18th are new episodes or not. I do not see the title of the episode in the calendar I am looking at.

                                      We will accelerate through the episodes until we catch up and then we will be back on the 1 episode a week format. This is similar to what they did in Sinnoh. For about a month we had 2 new episodes every day and then they suddenly changed it back to the weekly format.

                                          I don't think so. I think what people were afraid would happen is there would be a lot of episodes come out all at once, and then they would show 6 episodes back to back, every day until there were no more to show. Leaving large gaps between seasons. Usually a Block Format is a period of 3 hours for a single show or a series of shows like Toonami in the USA.

                                          What they are doing for SM, is playing catch up so that USA isn't behind the other English speaking countries and then they switch back over to 1 episode a week.

                                          I don't know why people were so afraid of this. I mean I understand that Disney does that sometimes, but Pokemon has been on Disney XD in every other English speaking country other than the USA, and they didn't use a block format then.

                                            Not to mention that block formats are pretty common for children's shows. Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Disney, etc will have a few weeks a year where there is a new episode of a particular show every weekday. It's a sweeps thing.

                                                I'm assuming that link is not legal.

                                                As for Disney XD, is it known yet when the new episodes will air after the first week? Saturdays at 9am eastern?
