"Pocket Monsters, Fall Special!" (ポケットモンスター・秋のスペシャル!) is a rare Japanese episode of Pokémon. This episode is notorious for only having aired once, only in Japan, on October 10th, 1997, and it has received no wide release on a home video format. It aired after episode 28 (titled "Pokémon Fashion Flash!") in the fall of 1997.
The episode is listed as a "clip show", meaning that it primarily uses clips from prior episodes to summarize the events that happened. It is approximately 90 minutes long, and it includes clips from episodes 1-27.
This episode did not resurface until September 25th, 2017, when the Pokémon Perú's Facebook page uploaded the special in full. The raw video is also available for download on MEGA.
