    WOW! I definitely did not see that coming! One things for certain, Disney XD will treat Pokemon better than Cartoon Network has! But this is shocking considering how long Pokemon has been affiliated with CN.

    So this means Cartoon Network is dropping/losing Pokémon after all those years?!

    Yep, had a feeling CN would drop it, but didn't expect Disney to get it. Doraemon, Yo-Kai Watch, Beyblade Burst, and now Pokemon. I wonder if they'll get the sixth Yu-Gi-Oh series next?

    Wow. CN really has become a joke if it can't even treat such a huge brand like Pokémon well. I guess action and anime, even in such limited form, on the network is a strict "no". That's just sad. They should just rename themselves Comedy Network, because apparently that's all they're capable of with thousands of toons available.

    Not surprised Disney is getting it though. It only makes sense since DXD carries Pokémon in most international markets. Now DXD will carry it globally with the exception of Germany that airs it on Nick. But still, I'm somewhat in a shock despite not being a very big fan.

    Thoughts @Light Lucario ?

    Let's be real here, please. You know very well what I mean. All of these are more comedy than adventure/action inside out. Everything CN is currently airing is. They're removing pure anime and action one show at a time and replacing it with comedy action/adventure/anime wannabees. They're all about "fun" at the core now and nothing else.

    Since XD just loves to air marathons, they will get their moneys worth with those 935 episodes.

    First Star Wars, now Pokemon. Not surprising though.

    They show I listed are 50/50 comedy/adventure as for anime its not profitable anymore, more people are going to move into streaming sites and anime isn't really that profitable anymore

    They still have Transformers, Nexo Knights, Ninjago, the upcoming Ben 10, and Justice League action they aren't done with action orientated shows Just Yet.

    That could explain by they would just stop airing XY on the 26.
    Honestly this is a little sad for CN when you think about it, Pokemon was big for both CN/Boomerang because of how long has it been with both channels.

    Doraemon is still on their app, and I believe it was Bang Zoom who declined to license a third season. And Yu-Gi-Oh is one of those series that seem to last forever, so I think a sixth series is inevitable.

    No one said they were going to stop airing it then. It may just be on break that week while CN airs another TTG marathon. We don't know what the week after that will look like, so it could come back then.

    Steven Universe has more action than Pokémon, though.

    Much like Beyblade, Disney has acquired the broadcast rights to the entire franchise.

    I know that. What I don't know is if Cartoon Network will still finish XYZ. The one that's supposed to air on Saturday is still on the schedule. The week after that is TTG and after that is unknown. I know it's pretty much done on CN, but I don't know what will happen with the rest of XYZ.

    2 Lego shows (toyetic), 1 Transformers show (toyetic) and 2 reboots (more comedic than original with so-so action) won't cut it. That's basically nothing compared to 5, 10, 15, 20 years ago. Anime and action on CN is no more. That's just a sad fact.

    Really? You sure? Even if that statistically was the case, Steven definitely isn't perceived nor promoted as an action series whereas Pokémon is. Pokémon = battles = action. Steven? Not so much. Even if Pokémon has many fillers it's still closer to action first than Steven which is more about adventure imo.
