Pokémon Chronicles is a series comprising the dubbed versions of a number of Pokémon anime TV specials. The series follows recurring and supporting characters Ash Ketchum met on his journey, like Misty, her sisters, Sakura, Casey, Ritchie, and Tracey. Ash only makes three appearances in the series in brief cameos.

Many of the episodes are side story episodes from the Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station show in Japan, but it also contained The Legend of Thunder! and shorts from the Pikachu's Winter Vacations series. The Pikachu's Winter Vacations shorts are presented as two individual episodes both titled Pikachu's Winter Vacation, with each of the Pikachu's Winter Vacation episodes composed of a pair of shorts.

Pokémon Chronicles first aired from May 11, 2005 to October 5, 2005, beginning with The Legend of Thunder! (Part 1) and ending with Pikachu's Winter Vacation (Christmas Night and Kanga Games) on Toonami UK. In Canada, YTV aired the series starting on September 9, 2005. In the United States, Cartoon Network aired the series from June 3, 2006 to November 25, 2006.

Pokémon Chronicles has seen DVD release in the United Kingdom and Australia. However, the series has yet to be available on DVD in the United States.


While Ash Ketchum continues on his quest to become the best, many others will experience their own unique journey through the Pokémon world—researchers, professors, Gym Leaders, Team Rocket members, Trainers, and even Pokémon. Some are familiar faces and others are strangers at first, but what they all have in common is a love of adventure—especially when it involves Pokémon!
