Pokémon in the Netherlands

78 bytes added, 19 October
When Fox Kids announced it would stop broadcasting Pokémon in March 2001, 32,000 complaining children called to Fox Kids. It turned out to be a 1 April joke, when the channel announced on 1 April that the third season would begin airing the same day.<ref></ref>
Episodes and movies in the Netherlands generally debut a few weeks after the first airing in the United States. A notable exception to this was ''[[SS020|Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness]]'' which aired in Dutch ''before'' airing in English anywhere in the world. Which together with the [[SS019Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out of the Gate!|first Pokémon Mystery Dungeon special]], three [[Pikachu short]]s ([[PK01]], [[PK04]] and [[PK07]]), [[The Uncut Story of Mewtwo's Origin]] (part of [[M01]]) ''[[SS026Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening]]'' (part of [[M16]]), [[Mewtwo Returns]] and [[The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon]] were the only specials of the Pokémon anime to be released in the Netherlands.
The Dutch dub also airs in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of [[Pokémon in Belgium|Belgium]]. In both Belgium and the Netherlands the anime is available on [[Netflix]].
