According to a number of online TV listings, the fifteenth season of the Pokémon anime, Pokémon Black & White: Rival Destinies, is scheduled to premiere on April 14, 2012 in the United Kingdom. The season will begin with Enter Elesa, Electrifying Gym Leader!, Saturday at 11:00 a.m. on CITV. This is one week after the Canadian premiere.

While some online listings merely mention Pokémon as the show in this timeslot, BT Vision is the only company to list the specific season. This makes sense, though, as CITV had stated previously that they would air the new season after the conclusion of a series of Pokémon movie screenings, which ends this Saturday, April 7 with Pokémon The Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram.

The season will start with Enter Elesa, Electrifying Gym Leader!, Saturday at 11:00 a.m. CITV as stated by BT Vision. The first episode focuses on Bianca going to the Nimbasa Gym, where her concerned father threatens to end her journey and take her back home.

Update:  According to its website, the season will also premiere on Disney XD on the same date, but at 8:00 a.m., three hours earlier.
