Pokemon: Adventures in the Orange Islands is the second season of the Pokemon animated series. On American network Kids 'WB! it was advertised as Pokemon: Orange Island Adventures.

Similar to the situation with Pokemon Indigo League, the subtitle was not added until the VHS/DVD releases when it was added to differentiate it from other releases.

The season follows the adventures of Ash, Misty and their new friend Tracey Sketchitt who "replaced" Brock in the majority of their journeys around the Orange Archipelago. Ash's main goal this season is to take on the Orange Crew and win the Orange League. You can read more about the key events of this season by clicking here.

The opening theme for Adventures on the Orange Islands (Japanese) is "The Rivals" by Rica Matsumoto, where in the English dub the song used is "Pokemon World" by Russell Velazquez.

There were a few different ending themes used:-
- "Type: Wild" by Rica Matsumoto
- "Pokemon Ondo" by Sachiko Kobayashi
- "Koffing, and Ekans" and "Riding on Lapras" both by Mayumi Lizuka.

This season was first aired in Japan on July 9th, 1998 opening with episode "Princess vs. Princess", it had been intended to air earlier that year on March 3rd, 1998 but had been delayed presumably because of the Episode 38 incident where some audiences enjoyed one too many thunderbolts; apparently triggering seizures across South East Asia. The season concluded in Japan on July 22nd, 1999 with "Charizard Chills".

The English Dub of Adventures in the Orange Islands also opened its airing with "Princess vs. Princess" which was aired on September 4th, 1999 with the final episode being "Charizard Chills" which aired on September 2nd, 2000.

Interestingly this season was never actually intended to be, it was produced in order to buy more time for Pokemon Gold & Silver to be finished so that it's successor Season; Pokemon: The Johto Journeys could be introduced.

Official Description

Ash’s journey to the top of the Indigo League continues—but will his friendship with fellow Pokémon League competitor Richie endanger his chances? With his Kanto journey completed, Ash finds there’s still plenty to see and do when Professor Oak sends him and his friends to the Orange Islands. Brock falls head-over-heels for the attractive Professor Ivy and decides to stay with her, leaving Ash and Misty alone as a dynamic duo—at least until they meet intrepid Pokémon watcher Tracey Sketchit!
