The Southern Islands

The southern islands had a German dubbed version.

It first aired in 2012 on OIF. The full German title was Preis Mann und Das Mädchen Mut - Pokemon Ritter(Priceman and the Girl of Courage - Pokémon Knights). OIF showed 2 episodes a week every Sunday night. There was minor censorship, but this dub stayed close to the original Kanto version. Twin Monsters enjoyed some success on OIF, but it was not until VERST II in March 2013 that the show became popular in the southern orange islands. OIF's dub only included the first two series, but VERST II decided to dub the remaining four series, none of the voice actors from OIF were brought back to reprise their roles.
