In the US, the first season consisted of 52 episodes and followed Pokémon trainer Ask Ketchum, sidekick Pikachu, and friends Misty and Brock on their travels through the Kanto region in pursuit of the youngster’s goal. Ketchum to become the best (like none we’ve ever been). In his adventures to collect arena badges and become a Pokémon Master, the trainer and his ten-year-old Pokémon friends fought off notorious pocket monster thieves – the villainous Team Rocket – and encountered and collected new Pokémon along the way.

VIZ Media previously released 78 episodes of the animated series on DVD in October 2014. The arrival of the original Pokemon episodes on Blu-ray were announced earlier this year, when the entire inaugural season of Pokémon the series was made available digitally in HD (720p) for the first time.

The Pokémon franchise continues to thrive, with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon becoming the top-selling games released by Nintendo in the United States. Pokémon-related software has sold over 280 million units worldwide (as of May 2016) since 1996, and the long-running anime franchise has released nearly 1,000 episodes since its debut in Japan in 1997.

It’s Ash Ketchum’s tenth birthday and he’s ready to do what many 10-year-olds in the Kanto region have decided to do – become a Pokemon trainer! Things don’t turn out exactly the way he planned when he finds himself with a Pikachu instead of a standard first Pokémon, and earning Gym badges is proving to be a lot more difficult than he thought. Luckily, he’s got former gym leaders Brock and Misty by his side, along with a slew of new Pokémon friends, including Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander.

The Pokémon: Indigo League the box set releases October 30 in the UK and November 14 in the US. Pokémon the series: Sun and Moon, the latest version of the anime, airs Thursdays on Tokyo TV in Japan and Saturday mornings on Disney XD in the United States.
