Pokémon and grammar
The word Pokémon and most Pokémon species names are of the commom grammatical gender in Swedish, meaning that they are used with the indefinitive article en and the definitive article den, den här, denna, however they are not inflected other than with the genitive suffix -s. Despie this, some other inflections such as the definitive singular form Pokémonen, can be heard occasionally throughout the series.

- Sweden is the only Nordic country to fully air the first five seasons of Pokémon, as well as have their respective intros dubbed. Denmark nearly skipped the entire Johto saga altogether as only the last 12 episodes were aired. Finland skipped the last episode of the first season, the Orange Islands saga altogether, and the second half of each season from seasons 3 through 6. Iceland only showed the first 54 episodes of the first season of the anime altogether. Norway only aired 24 episodes of the Orange Islands saga and the last 12 episodes of the entire Johto saga.
