It is hard to believe but the Pokémon anime series will be celebrating its 1,000th episode next week. The 1,000th episode is titled “Lilie and Silvady, the Resurrected Memory! and will feature Silvady’s TV anime debut. The anime first began back on 1 April 1997 in Japan. The new episode will broadcast on November 9th. There’s apparently some debate online as to whether it is the 1,000th episode, but as Kotaku says, if you count the Porygon episode and the Mega Evolution specials the upcoming episode is the 1,000th.
