Pokémon "Pocket Monsters, Fall Special!" (lost episode of anime series; 1997)
Pocket Monsters, Fall Special! (ポケットモンスター・秋のスペシャル！) is a rare Japanese episode of Pokémon. This episode is notorious for only having aired once, only in Japan, on October 10, 1997, and it has received no wide release on a home video format. It aired after episode 28 (titled Pokemon Fashion Flash!) in the fall of 1997.
The episode is listed as a "clip show," meaning that it primarily uses clips from prior episodes to summarize the events that happened. It's believed to be about 90-minutes long, and it includes clips from episodes 1-27.
This episode has not resurfaced online. It is likely that the only way this episode will be seen again is if a Japanese viewer recorded it from their television and can digitize the tape.
