This is the second box set that has been released for Season One of Pokemon. Once again, this collector's set is only the 4kids American dub with no second Japanese version. Like the first box set, it contains three discs; each in a nice hard case that slide into one cardboard sleeve. The artwork on the box and each individual case is similar to the first. The set contains the second 26 episodes of season one. The third and final box set is due out in February, 2008.
Once again, the menus are decent but nothing spectacular. On box #4's menu, it has a picture of Ash and Pikachu. For some strange reason, he is wearing an outfit that appears only in a later season. Whether this was done intentionally or was a mistake, I do not know. When it comes to scene selection, each episode is divided into only two parts. The first, being before the commercial break, and the second, coming after the break. The video quality is descent.
According to Wikipedia, the Japanese version contains 83 episodes; three were originally banned in the U.S. One of those episodes was eventually aired ("Beauty and the Beach") but has yet to show up on any DVD edition. That meaning, there should be 80 episodes that should be released as the final box set comes out. But if you notice on the third set, it says "episodes 53-79." A fourth episode may possibly not be released as the final set comes out in February. One theory may be that it is the "Holiday Hi-Jinx" episode that caused some controversy a few years back.
On another side-note, episodes 50-52 contain a character that is a Pokemon photographer. In its original airing, his name was referred to as Todd, but in this version, he is called Snapp--which was his real name according to the video game in which he belongs.
One nice thing that could be included in the DVDs would be the original TV spots for episodes that first aired on KidsWB! But seeing that Pokemon DVDs never have real extras, it would never happen. Overall, this is the best edition of season one part two that there is. It's worth the purchase if you do not mind the American version. I rate this product 5 out of 5 stars.
