Pokemon Black & White Anime Coming to Cartoon Network February 12

North American fans still have about two months to go before they’ll be able to pick up the latest chapter of the Pokémon saga on March 6, but they’ll have a good threeish weeks of anime to tide them over while they wait to catch ’em all. According to this week’s announcement by The Pokémon Company, the Pokémon: Black & White (known as

Pocket Monster: Best Wishes! in Japan) anime series will debut on Cartoon Network February 12, with Canada’s Teletoon network hosting their premiere February 13.The North American premiere will be preceded by the animated movie Pokémon Zoroark: Master of Illusions (a.k.a. Pocket Monster Diamond & Pearl: Genei no Hasha Zoroark) on February 5 at 7:00 p.m. according to ANN, with Pokémon: Black and White following the next weekend with two new episodes at 9:00 a.m.

I’m not sure if the American version will include the original Japanese theme song (localized or not), so for the sake of wearing a goofy smile for the next five minutes, here’s a live version of that optimistic intro music:
