Movie Time! Zorua in The Legend of the Pokémon Knight!

Hollywood had better get their act in gear, because there’s Pokemon cinema to keep track of! In the next Saturday Morning episode of Pokemon Black and White, Ash, Cilan, and Iris are taking center stage along with Luke, a film maker. As the group gets deep into their feature film, Luke’s shape-shifting Zorua Pocket Monster decides he wants to play every part in the movie. At least, that is, until he gets exhausted. Noting that, our heroes decide they’ll help fill out the film as the cast. Sounds like a nice little show, where everything wraps up in a tidy package. …a package that Team Rocket plans to steal! TOON in to Cartoon Network on October 22nd at 9am for the latest episode: Movie Time! Zorua in The Legend of the Pokémon Knight!

Seems like every week, Ash, Cilan, and Iris run into some sorta trouble. And, every week, the good folks at Cartoon Network are there to broadcast the adventures via Pokemon Black and White. On Saturday morning, October 15th, this phenomena continues during even the most peaceful of activities: fishing!

Of course not; not when Team Rocket has a devious-minded plan in store. So what does the team of Pocket Monster hunters do? TOON in to A Fishing Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition! to find out!

Fanimation: Half Bear, Half Shark, All BearShark, a Harry Partridge creation

Fanimation: Half Bear, Half Shark, All BearShark, a Harry Partridge creation

The world of fan animation is far and varied, with some individuals piecing together a flip book from post-its, and others grabbing studio time with AfterEffects and ProTools to produce theater-quality productions. From what we’ve seen of Harry Partridge’s work, he’s much closer to the latter. For years now, Happy Harry Toons have made themselves viral across the interwebs, including favorites like Saturday Morning Watchmen and The American Akira, with amazing quality, humor, and attention to detail. The latest effort, BearShark, perfectly falls in line with the rest; another masterpiece.

If there’s one thing we never want to see in real life, it’s an angry Pikachu surrounded by glowing bolts of electricity. However, if there’s one thing we absolutely can’t wait to see this Saturday Morning, it’s an angry Pikachu surrounded by glowing bolts of electricity! Thankfully, Cartoon Network did the hard work by capturing the footage in August 6th’s episode of Pokemon Black and White, The Dragon Master’s Path. When Ash and company meet Emmy and her angry Druddigon on the way to Nimbasa City, it’s up to the group to control the Dragon-type Pokemon! The task becomes all the more pressing when Team Rocket shows up to grab the Druddigon, Axew, and Pikachu!

Pokemon Black and White Emolga and the New Volt Switch on Cartoon Network

Pokemon Black and White Emolga and the New Volt Switch on Cartoon Network

If there’s one thing Pokemon seems to do better than most cartoons, it’s keep to a certain continuity. Sure, there’s some wonky aspects of the toon, but very often, cartoons ignore previous episodes and tell stories as if nothing is connected. However, with Cartoon Network’s Pokemon Black and White, you get aspects that happen last week in Emolga the Irresistible, and get to see them carry over to this week’s episode, Emolga and the New Volt Switch. Namely: the Emolga! In this week’s episode, Iris learns all about the Emolga’s Volt Switch, which forces Ash, Cilan, and Bianca’s Pokemon to appear. Meanwhile, there’s all sorts of “Attract” going on, keeping all the male Pokemon distracted. Talk about chaos!
