The canon of the [[Pokémon anime]] consists of the following:
 
* The events of each and every episode are canon, and occur in chronological order with the exception of [[EP052]], which takes place before [[EP049]]. Also, the special episodes ''[[Holiday Hi-Jynx]]'' and ''[[Snow Way Out!]]'' (originally postponed after [[EP038]] caused seizures in some viewers) take place either directly before or after [[EP039]]. Three unaired episodes ([[AG101 (unaired)|one]] in the {{series|Advanced Generation}} and [[BW023 (unaired)|two]] [[BW024 (unaired)|in]] the {{series|Best Wishes}}) are not canon.

* All movies up to ''[[M20|Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!]]'' are canon to the TV series (although only one of the two versions of [[M14|the 14th movie]] is canon), and usually act the same as [[filler episode]]s, as {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} do not obtain, evolve, or release any Pokémon, and do not earn any [[Badge]]s or [[Ribbon]]s. Often, a movie takes place chronologically between the episodes between which it premieres in Japan.
