It features 52 episodes of Ash Ketchum and his friends Misty and Brock's adventure through Johto from Goldenrod City to Cianwood City.

Trivia

  • At exactly 52 episodes, it is the first season to contain from the first episode to the last episode that uses a unique opening theme sequence and title, a precedent that would later be followed as of season 7. However, in some countries as well as on the original Kids' WB! airing, on Magna Pacific Australian Super Wallet releases, and on Boomerang and Cartoon Network, the opening theme for "The Johto Journeys" was used for the first five episodes of this season.
  • This is the last season to be entirely done with cel animation. Not counting the Mewtwo Returns three part arc trilogy, which only used digital colouring animation instead of using cels, marking three parts of the special the first three to use digital ink and paint colouring, and the only one until the next season, Master Quest.
