Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands is the second season of the Pokémon anime. This season showcases the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Tracey in the Orange Islands before they return to Pallet Town. The subtitle "Adventures in the Orange Islands" is not used within the episodes, but was later added by the DVD boxed sets to distinguish it from the later seasons.

It originally aired as part of the 1999-2000 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Pallet Party Panic, which originally aired on December 4, 1999, and ended with The Rivalry Revival, which originally aired on October 14, 2000.

Adventures in the Orange Islands marked the beginning of the arc that spans between the Indigo League and the Johto saga which begins with Pokémon: The Johto Journeys.
