Pokémon Indigo League opens to Ash Ketchum’s tenth birthday and he’s ready to do what many 10-year-olds in the Kanto region set out to do, become a Pokémon Trainer. Things don’t go exactly the way he planned when he ends up with Pikachu instead of a standard first Pokémon, and winning Gym badges turns out to be much tougher than he thought. Luckily, he’s got former Gym Leaders Brock and Misty at his side, along with a bevy of new Pokémon friends, including Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander.

The Pokémon Indigo League six-disk Blu-ray set will include all 52 episodes of the first season in full 1080p high definition with English dub as well as English SDH subtitled dialogue options. The set will will also come packed with notable bonus features such as a complete “Pokérap” video and “Who’s That Pokémon?” digital art gallery. Also included will be a recipe card from the Pokémon Cookbook: Easy and Fun Recipes and a Pokémon Adventures Vol. 1 mini-manga sampler.
