Please read this note from Bulbapedia (the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia): Pokémon Learning League was a web-based educational series that used characters from the Pokémon anime to teach students in the areas of science, math, language arts, and life skills. The site was for American children in grades 3 to 6. The site was free when it was first set up in Fall 2006 but was later only viewable through a paid subscription service after January 1, 2007. As of August 1, 2008, the site does not take new subscribers and now redirects to Pokémon.com.
It should be noted that there are many variations from the main anime canon, including the existence of the PokéPilot. Additionally, the fourth wall is often broken by the characters either asking for help or thanking the person doing the lesson.
