When the players are in Chaotic/Perim they exist simultaneously on Earth. When a Chaotic player leaves Chaotic they become one person again and the Earth version of the player gains the memories of anything they experienced in the Chaotic/Perim world. This is awkward the first time they transport, as their online deck is blocked so that their Chaotic self can use it and their scanner becomes non-functional, causing many people to believe they have broke their scanners until they are re-united with their Chaotic self.A short preview was shown on 4Kids TV on September 30, 2006 at 10:30 AM ET. The show officially premiered on October 7, 2006 at 10:30 AM ET. 4Kids Entertainment plans to “roll out the storyline over seven years”, implying there were seven seasons planned for the television series. A second season, called Chaotic: M’arillian Invasion, began airing in September 2008 on 4Kids TV. While season 1 used flash animation, the M’arillian Invasion season is animated in traditional animation. Jetix (U.S.) bought the cable rights to the show and began airing it daily at 7:00 AM on October 1, 2007. The Secrets of Lost City season is animated in traditional animation, like the previous season.
