The first episode of the Pokemon television anime aired on April 1, 1997 in Japan. This week, the show will air its 1,000th episode.

The name of the 1,000th episode is "Lilie and Silvady, the Resurrected Memory!" and will feature Silvady's TV anime debut.

Broadcasting on November 9, the episode looks like a tearjerker (literally!) as evident in this Anicobin preview screencap:

There has been some dispute as to whether or not this episode is actually number one thousand, because by some accounts, it's actually 988.

But counting the Porygon episode and the Mega Evolution specials, next week's episode is the 1,000th.

It's been over twenty years of Pokemon anime. Can you believe it? 


    20 years, 1,000 episodes, and Ash still can't win a League.

      He won the orange league challenge.
