Black & White to get June debut in UK
This past weekend, the TV Channel CITV aired Pokémon Preview Weekend, with the Zoroark: Master of Illusions movie shown this past Saturday, and the first two episodes of the upcoming Pokémon: Black & White anime series shown the next day. At the end of Enter Iris and Axew!! (The second episode in the season) a notice came up stating that the series will begin in full later this year.
PokémonWorld got in touch with ITV (the parent company of CITV) to inquire about the series' planned air date, and whether they plan on airing the final DP: Sinnoh League Victors episode Memories are Made of Bliss, which did not air before the season started repeats. While they could not confirm an air date for the missing DP episode, they did confirm that Black & White will be airing from early June.
The series most likely received a sneak preview a while before the planned airing to help generate hype for the Pokémon Black and White Versions which will be released in Europe this Friday, before an American release on Sunday.
