I've been watching through Bleach and got to episode 209, but it's not there and now I'm sad-face I noticed the thing that says they'll implement the older episodes in the near future, does anybody have any idea when?

I too am working my way through Bleach, I just finished ep. 176. I'll be at 206 soon enough, so I'm interested in the answer too!

In general, why are there a few seasons missing in the first place? Was it a rights thing with Studio Pierrot (sp?)?

I have no idea.

The interesting thing is it says they're missing 206 - 265 but yet I watched 206 - 208 yesterday. Are they slowly releasing them one at a time?

The missing episodes are currently being aired (for the first time in the US) on Adult Swim. This is probably why they're not available here on Crunchyroll. It would affect their ratings and money making and stuff so blame it on marketing. Bleach IS popular after all so I can def see this as the reason. It airs Saturday nights in case you didn't know and I think the latest episode aired was 230-something. Hope that helps.

Ah that would make sense. I remember Adult Swim saying how they don't like their own internet-streaming to have any advantages over the TV version, so I guess it would make sense for them to not want any other sites to have advantages either...

english 209 was aired june 19.
so maybe we are being like 7 months behind them?

But we have episodes that havent' even been aired yet in the US.
Anyways, once we get to 229, you can skip the filler and watch the rest of bleach.
then come back and watch the filler once ever week if it is really important to you.

Oh yeah, the American airing is WAY behind and it does suck (for me anyway) because I actually enjoy watching the whole thing. I normally don't like filler but for some reason I don't find Bleach's filler all that bad. Some of it's pretty funny and some of the filler arcs are actually interesting like this "Zanpakuto's are against us" thing.
Anyway what sand500 said is true. If you've been keeping up with the American airing of it you can continue the Hueco Mundo arc here. Episode 266 starts right off with Ichigo vs Ulquiorra. You'd just have to keep an eye on Adult Swim for the missed filler.
