There are VHS and DVD releases of the Pokémon anime.

In the original Japanese language, there are rental DVDs that will generally contain three episodes per volume disc.

In English, region 1 releases by Viz Media will use arcs for their releases instead of seasons, so for example Indigo League which consists of season 1 and the first 27 episodes of season 2 will belong on one 79-episode disc named "Pokémon: Indigo League".

In region 4 DVD releases in Australia, the releases are separated by season instead of arc, so the Pokémon: Advanced release will consist of season 6, which is every episode from Address Unown! to Watt's with Wattson?, instead of the 40-episode Advanced arc that begins with Get the Show on the Road!.

Pokémon: Indigo League (Region 1)

This is the complete collection box set, which includes all episodes of the Indigo League arc, as recognized by Viz Media, Holiday Hi-Jynx was removed from Poké between 2013 and 2014 and is no longer included on later box sets. This list is based primarily on how it was originally listed.

Discs 7-9 consist of the season 2 episodes of the Indigo League arc, and the third volume is mistakenly listed as season 1, yet this was fixed on later box sets as Viz Media releases the series by arc rather than season pack.

Beauty and the Beach aired as a lost episode on Kids' WB! only twice and does not belong in a season, therefore it is not included on DVD.
