Season 9 Pokmon: Battle Frontier (2005-2006)[edit]

This section is empty. You can
help by adding to it. (January 2015)

The division between seasons of Pokmon is based on the English version openings of each
episode, and may not reflect the actual production season. The English episode numbers are
based on their first airing in the United States either in syndication on Cartoon Network, or in
Canada on the YTV Television Network. Other English-speaking nations largely followed either
this order or the Japanese order. Subsequent airings of the English version follow the original
Japanese order, except in the case of episodes which are no longer shown in English. The
episodes that comprise this season were known in Japan by the subtitle Battle Frontier Chapter(
Batoru Furontia Hen?).

This season aired first-run episodes in Japan from October 6, 2005, to September 14, 2006
(although, it should be noted that the Japanese season started much earlier). Following
Masamitsu Hidaka's departure as director on episode 25, Norihiko Sudo took over from episodes
26 onward. In the United States, it began airing on September 8, 2006, and ended on March 3,
2007 onCartoon Network.

This is the first season of Pokmon that has been dubbed into English by Pokmon
USA and TAJ Productions after 4Kids Entertainment's contract wasn't renewed (though assets
from the 4Kids dub are still used), the first season to air on Cartoon Network since 2002, and as
such, the first season dubbed by the new voice cast. There are some Pokmon in Battle Frontier
that are not in the Pokdex at the time of sighting, such as Weavile, Electivire & Mime Jr., as
they are Sinnoh Pokmon, and had yet to be "discovered." The series was released in two
volumes both containing three disc. Volume one contained the first 24 episodes and Volume two
