Pokémon de English (Japanese: ポケモンdeイングリッシュ Pokémon de English) was a segment at the end of Pocket Monsters Encore used to teach Japanese children simple English words and phrases. All of the segments where later compiled into three volumes and later released.

Pokémon de English uses a mixture of unedited Japanese and painted-over English video. New English lines were also recorded for this release by the original voice actors from both Japan and the United States. Pokémon de English was later released as rental only VHS and DVDs in 2002 and 2007, respectively, including English audio, as well as closed captioning in both English and Japanese.

The blurb on the back of the DVD releases read:

"The contents of this DVD are edited from the US release and was originally broadcast in Japan. Now you can enjoy the native speed and clarity by watching Pokémon spoken in English by native English speakers!"
