Pokémon: Advanced Battle is the eighth season of the Pokémon anime, and the third season of the dub of the Advanced Generation, consisting of episodes 93-145 of the original Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation series. This season concludes the adventures of Ash, May, Max, and Brock in the Hoenn region, as Ash and May compete in the Ever Grande Conference and the Hoenn Grand Festival, respectively. It also showcases the beginning of Ash's second adventure through Kanto while challenging the Battle Frontier.

It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2005-2006 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with Clamperl Of Wisdom, which originally aired on September 17, 2005, and ended with Pasta La Vista, which originally aired on July 8, 2006. This season skips AG120, a clip show episode.

Jamie Davyous Owens joins the cast this season providing the voice of Officer Jenny from Lee Quick.

This is the final season that takes place in the Hoenn region. It is preceded by Pokémon: Advanced Challenge and succeeded by Pokémon: Battle Frontier.


Ash earns his final two Badges and secures himself a spot in the Hoenn League Championships, while May comes dangerously close to not getting her final Ribbon—setting the stage for epic showdowns with both of her rivals in the Grand Festival. Ash meets two Trainers that become his own Hoenn rivals, facing off against both of them during the course of the tournament. Upon returning to Kanto and reuniting with old friends, Ash is recruited for a new challenge—the Battle Frontier!
