Pokémon: Black & White is the fourteenth season of the dubbed version of the Pokémon anime. It follows the conclusion of the Diamond & Pearl series of the Pokémon anime, and as such is the first dubbed season of the Best Wishes series. The season follows Ash as he continues his journey, venturing into the Unova region with new friends Iris and Cilan.

It began on February 12, 2011 with the dub premiere In The Shadow of Zekrom!, and concluded on January 7, 2012 with Battle for the Underground!. This season skipped episodes BW023 and BW024 due to the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2011-2012 Cartoon Network Saturday morning line-up.

It is preceded by Pokémon DP: Sinnoh League Victors, the last season of the Diamond & Pearl series dub, and is succeeded by Pokémon BW: Rival Destinies.

Trivia

  • Who's That Pokémon? returned at the beginning of the season, after an absence of 344 episodes.
  • Unlike previous seasons, this season has more episode titles based more on either the original Japanese titles, or the plot of the episode as a whole, rather than being puns. This may be an extension of the idea of the franchise returning to its roots, as many early original series episodes had their titles based on the original Japanese title.
  • In some languages, the term "black and white" is commonly expressed as "white and black". This caused some dubs to change the season name from "White and Black" to "Black and White" midway of the broadcasting, at the request of the dubbing client, SDI Media, to match the names of the games.
    • The season name was also changed in Russian dub. As the new channel got the broadcast license, the season was rerun under the new title.
  • In the Danish version, Mathias Klenske, the Danish voice of Ash, did some of the translation, according to the credit subtitles used at Disney XD.
