Not to be confused with Location preview.
An eyecatch (Japanese: アイキャッチ eyecatch) is a transitional feature in the Pokémon anime that appears between commercial breaks during an episode. Sometimes, the 12 seconds available are used for two 6-second eyecatches or a single 12-second eyecatch.

The only eyecatch retained for Western audiences was Dare da? (Japanese, kana: だれだ?; translation: Who is it?), which became Who's That Pokémon?. Unlike its Japanese counterpart, it continued well into the Advanced Generation series, ending with Watt's with Wattson? and being replaced by Pokémon Trainer's Choice starting with from What You Seed is What You get? ending with Pasta La Vista, when eyecatches disappeared in the dub, but then returned in In The Shadow of Zekrom!. With that, the English dub episodes of Diamond & Pearl series are the only ones with no eyecatch entirely.
