In 2000, it was available for Romanian fans to get Pokémon stickers by buying Chipicao (a croissant brand). They included the first 151 Pokémon.
The series first aired in the 2000s, with the first four seasons airing on ProTv before moving to TVR1. The fifth season premiered on Animax. The entire Advanced Generation Series was skipped due to unknown reasons. The anime resumed with the airing of the tenth season on Jetix in September 2008 but with entriely different voice actors. The eleventh season premiered in January 2009. Jetix became Disney Channel Romania on September 19, 2009 and it started airing season twelve in the same year. The anime stopped airing after the twelfth season for unknown reasons.
After about an eight to nine-year hiatus, the anime finally returned on April 1, 2018 with the release of Pokemon: Serialul - Soarele și Luna on Netflix. Only the voice actors for Ash and James, Cristian Niculescu and Dan Lupu respectively, returned for this season.
