Recap / Pokémon Chronicles

Go To

Although most specials take place within the main anime canon, only two of them have Ash in a starring role. Instead, they may focus on recurring characters, Team Rocket, former main characters who were Put on a Bus, the Pichu Posse, or even never-before-seen original characters.

The planetarium specials were aired exclusively in Japanese planetariums and space museums.
