The Pokémon franchise first reached Serbia with the airing of Покемон, ја бирам тебе!. In Serbia Pokémon can be written as Покемон or Pokemon though the English logo is used in the anime.

Pokémon video games

Various Pokémon games are sold in Serbia, but they are left in English. From late 1993 to early 2006, Beosoft was responsible for selling Nintendo games in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia/Serbia and Montenegro. Computerland was the official distributor from early 2006 until late 2007 when CoolPlay (associated with Stadlbauer) became exclusive distributor of Nintendo and sold consoles and games up to 2013.[1] Since 2016, CD Media has been selling games.[2]

Pokémon anime

The anime in Serbia (at the time Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro) was dubbed from Pokémon: Indigo League to Pokémon: Master Quest by studio Loudworks. Pokémon Chronicles came out in 2005, dubbed by Happy TV, with seemingly all voice actors changed except for Misty and Ash. It aired on Happy TV and all the episodes except 19-21 were released on four DVDs from 2005 to 2006. With Pokémon: Advanced never getting dubbed surprisingly Pokémon: Advanced Challenge started airing a fair while after Master Quest concluded, still dubbed by Loudworks, but with some voice actors changed. The original dub aired on many different channels, including Pink and Ultra, while Advanced Challenge aired only on Ultra. Indigo League and Orange Islands' theme song was the Pokémon Theme dubbed in Serbian with Pokémon World being skipped. Johto Journeys, Johto League Champions, and Master Quest all used Pokémon Johto dubbed in Serbian, skipping Born to Be a Winner and Believe in Me. Advanced Challenge used This Dream dubbed in Serbian. Seasons 8 through 13 were never dubbed. Pokémon: Black & White started airing on Happy TV in Serbian, dubbed by studio Ideogram, using Black and White dubbed in Serbian as its opening. Anything beyond that was never dubbed as of now.

In Serbia, the anime is available on Netflix.

Pokémon movies

The only movies that were dubbed in Serbian are movies 4, 5 and 7. M05 is still dubbed by Loudworks, but M04 and M07 were dubbed by studio Prizor. M07 was released under the title Судбина Деоксиса. All of them, except for M05, were released on DVD. The songs were not dubbed.

A Serbian subtitled version of POKÉMON Detective Pikachu was shown in cinemas on May 16, 2019.
