Odds & Ends: Teletoon runs new Beyblade, Pokémon, Power Rangers; Mind Game in Alberta

Teletoon is premiering new episodes and seasons of some blog relevant shows over the next few weeks:

  • The latest iteration of Ash and Pikachu’s journey, Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon — Ultra Adventures, is set to debut this Saturday on the channel at 12PM. In the United States, the season will launch on Disney XD starting March 24th. While not branded beyond the Sun & Moon moniker, the episodes that make up this season began airing on TV Tokyo in Japan last fall.
  • Following Pokémon at 12:30PM on Saturday will be the Canadian premiere of Power Rangers: Super Ninja Steel. An additional new-to-Canada episode will also air on Sundays at the same time. The back half of Saban Brands’ adaptation of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger debuted in the U.S. on Nickelodeon on January 27th. The season will mark the final entry under the current Power Rangers branding, with the next adaptation moving to a different logo as Hasbro pushes Bandai America aside to become toy licensee (and potential owner).
  • After a month-long hiatus, new episodes of Beyblade Burst Evolution will return to Teletoon. Episode 22 is scheduled for March 17th at 2:30PM, with episode 23 planned for the next day at the same time.

Elsewhere, YTV will debut “new” Mysticons episodes starting April 8th at 10:30 and 11AM. This will be the first time Nelvana’s series has had new episodes in Canada since last October, when episode 18 aired.

Canada is apparently getting more Turning Mecard. No word on if that’ll be on Teletoon or YouTube, or if it’ll be the Los Angeles dub recorded at Studiopolis, or the BTI Studios Hong Kong production.

Family CHRGD will begin airing the “second season” (episodes 14-26) of Zak Storm starting on Monday, March 12th at 8:45AM. Premeires will carry on in that slot until Friday as part of March Break activities. New episodes will move to its regular home on Sundays at 9AM starting March 25th.

All times listed in eastern.

GKIDS has been releasing Masaaki Yuasa and Studio 4C’s 2004 film Mind Game across theatres over the past few weeks. As it stands, right now only two locations have picked the film up in Canada:  Edmonton’s Metro Cinema (planned for March 18 and 19th) and Calgary’s Globe Cinema. If more locations are added, I’ll do a full on separate post.
