Pokémon: Master Quest is the name of the fifth season of the Pokémon anime, consisting of 52 episodes of the original. The season showcases the final adventures of Ash, Misty, and Brock in the Johto region, from the Whirl Islands to Mt. Silver.

It originally aired as part of the 2002-2003 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Around the Whirlpool, which originally aired on September 14, 2002, and ended with You're a Star, Larvitar!, which originally aired on September 6, 2003. This season skips EP250, which was banned from airing.

Master Quest is the last of the three seasons taking place in the Johto region. It is preceded by Pokémon: Johto League Champions and followed by Pokémon: Advanced, the first season of the dub of the Advanced Generation, which is based on the Generation III games. This season is the last of the 4Kids Entertainment dub to be produced at TAJ Productions.


With the Olivine City Gym temporarily out of commission, our heroes are off to the Whirl Cup Competition—and Misty wants in on the action! Resuming their journey, they find that Jessie, James, and Meowth aren’t the only members of Team Rocket they need to worry about, though that dastardly trio still has a few tricks up their collective sleeve. After a heated battle with the final Gym Leader, Ash moves on to the Silver Conference, but does he have the mettle to take on his old rival, Gary?
