Cartoon Network
With the premiere of each season, the channel performs special promotions such as marathons of older episodes and, in years past, contests and other events. In December 2002, to commemorate the premiere of ''[[S05|Pokémon: Master Quest]]'' on January 1, 2003, the channel held a contest called "{{tt|Los Elegidos Pokémon|The Pokémon Chosen}}". To participate, viewers would vote for their favorite episodes on Cartoon Network's website, the most popular of which would be aired in a marathon on December 31, 2002.<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20030207023701/http://www.cartoonnetworkla.com/spanish/promos/pokemon/ Los Elegidos Pokémon - Cartoon Network archive] (in Spanish)</ref>
