VIZ Media will release the complete first season (52 episodes) of Pokemon Indigo League for the first time on Blu-ray on November 14th. The new six-disc package will be available for $69.99 U.S. / $81.99 CAN. The set features episodes presented in full 1080p High Definition with English dubbed as well as English SDH subtitled dialogue options.

As the new series opens, it’s 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.
