Television schedules also reveal that the first episode of Pokémon: Black & White will be shown a day later, on Sunday 27th February at 9.25 am. Additionally, an episode is scheduled for 10.40 am on the same day; it is currently unclear if this is the second episode, or a repeat of the first.

This marks a surprisingly early British debut for the series, though it should be noted that no episode appears to be scheduled the following week, suggesting that the UK may have to wait a while longer for the full series.

CITV can be found on Channel 72 on Freeview (except in Wales) and Channel 621 on Sky satellite.
