The Pokémon franchise arrived in Brazil on May 10, 1999, with the broadcast of Pokémon, Eu Escolho Você! during a morning TV program called Eliana & Alegria in Rede Record.

The Pokémon games in terms of gameplay have been officially released in English but distributed for Brazil, both South America and Latin America. Some have had a Brazilian localization but only for package and cart design (e.g. Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions and Pokémon Crystal Version), as the ROM image itself is in English. Only more recently have there been Pokémon games in Portuguese; the official and national language of Brazil.[1][2][3][4]

Currently, the Pokémon anime is broadcast on Cartoon Network, Pokémon Adventures is published by Panini Comics, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game is released by Copag.

Pokémon games

Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

All Pokémon games have been available to Brazilian customers in English. Some have had a Brazilian localization attempt of any sort, others would later translate the games themselves. However, from January 2015 to May 2017, Nintendo's officially licensed distributors ceased trade in the Brazilian market due to the ongoing, significantly high taxation tariffs on imported electronic goods, especially as direct competition recently decided to open manufacturing plants within the country to lift some of these tariffs. In May 2017, NC Games became the new licensed distributor of Nintendo products, until that company closed in 2019. The games have been digitally distributed through the Brazilian version of Nintendo eShop, also known as Loja Nintendo ("Nintendo Shop") ever since. Since then, Nintendo was officially re-launched in Brazil on September 18, 2020.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, Pokémon GO, Pokémon TCG Card Dex, Pokémon UNITE, and Pokémon Trading Card Game Live are the only Pokémon games to be localized (had the gameplay itself translated) into Brazilian Portuguese. In the past, Gradiente (Gradiente Entertainment) managed the packaging and cart appearance/production of earlier Pokémon games. Today, this is managed by Nintendo Brasil, but some fans have expressed that they want more games to be translated into Brazilian Portuguese (not just things like packaging); a movement called Queremos Nintendo.

Distribution events

There have been official events for Pokémon distribution in some Brazilian cities for Jirachi in 2010, Celebi in 2011, Keldeo in 2012, Meloetta and the Shiny creation trio in 2013 and a Shiny Gengar and Diancie in 2014. As of January 2015, future events are now up in the air since Pokémon games are to be available in the Brazilian market in limited quantities as Nintendo lost its mainstream distributor in Brazil.

Pokémon anime

Pokémon started airing on RecordTV on May 10, 1999. It aired daily in the morning. A few months later, it also began to air on Cartoon Network. Both channels noticed the great success that they had in their hands, and after several reruns of the first season, the second season began to air on both channels, first on RecordTV, and then on Cartoon Network starting the week after.

The second season had also high ratings, but was not as successful as the first. This was due to the broadcast of the Digimon series on a rival channel of RecordTV, Globo, in the same time slot. Eventually, RecordTV acquired seasons three and four as well. Around this time, in 2002, the success of Pokémon on RecordTV led another network, SBT, to buy the rights to the first three movies in partnership with Warner Bros., making the films a well-known part of SBT's film rotation.

Since RecordTV had aired its episodes in a short period of time, it started to rerun episodes frequently, a fact which lowered its overall audience ratings. Because of this, Globo purchased the rights to season five in 2003. Pokémon was so successful in the mornings on Globo that it also acquired the sixth and seventh seasons. When they too ran out of new episodes, Globo reran them a few times and eventually took the show out of its morning schedule.

In 2008, RedeTV! needed a temporary cartoon to fill a space which would be taken by a new show, and acquired the first season to do so. However, Pokémon was so successful that RedeTV! acquired other seasons to air at night on the channel at 6pm. In 2009, RedeTV! was the first to air season eleven, even before Cartoon Network, which usually is the first to air new episodes.

Starting on January 1, 2010, previous seasons of the anime debuted on Tooncast, a sister network of Cartoon Network. The channel aired the first 17 seasons in sequence, and then started airing reruns of Aventuras em Unova e Mais Além and XY. Some movies have also aired on this channel.

From the twelfth season to the eighteenth, the anime premiered on Cartoon Network. Starting with the eighteenth season, new episodes premiered in blocks of usually four or eight episodes every one or two months, from Monday to Thursday at 4 p.m. BRT. On May 12, 2016, the nineteenth season premiered on Pokémon TV. The first 28 episodes debuted on the service, but the last 20 debuted on Cartoon Network.

Pokémon Gerações premiered on February 10, 2017 on The Pokémon Company International's Portuguese YouTube channel in Brazilian Portuguese. The final episode of the series was made available on June 20, 2017.

On June 5, 2017, the twentieth season premiered on Cartoon Network. The season ended with a special marathon on Pokémon Day 2018.

On January 26, 2018, the sixth season was made available on Prime Video, being the first Pokémon season available on the service. Pokémon, a série: Ouro e Prata, Rubi e Safira, Diamante e Pérola, Preto e Branco, and XY have been also available on the service in the following years, although only two series at a time.

Originally planned for January 2018, RedeTV! started re-airing the first season of the anime on March 19, 2018, during the program "Turma da Pakaraka". This marks the first time the anime is aired on the channel since 2012. It aired from Monday to Friday at the same time as it aired in previous years, at 6 p.m. BRT, with two episodes per day, and also another episode at 9 a.m. BRT. They also aired the first two movies.

The twenty-first season premiered on Cartoon Network on June 4, 2018, following the same schedule as previous seasons.

To celebrate the release of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Cartoon Network held a seven-episode marathon on November 18, 2018, most of them featuring Pikachu or Eevee. The following episodes were aired: A Caverna dos Espelhos!, Luzes! Câmera! Pikachu!, Festa Dançante!, Classe Mestra reunida!, Chamando atenção e treinando muito!, A jovem chama volta a atacar!, and Capturando a Vitória!. Another marathon was held for the release of POKÉMON Detetive Pikachu in May 2019.

The twenty-second season premiered on Cartoon Network on June 3, 2019 and was the last season to follow the schedule started on season 18.

From December 2 to 6, 2019, Cartoon Network did a special week to promote the release of the TCG expansion Cosmic Eclipse, airing the original series episodes Quem Vai Ficar com Togepi?, Duelando pelo Totodile, Entrega Especial Houndoom, Vamos Cantar, Pessoal, and Um Desejo sob as Estrelas. The twelfth movie also aired on Friday.

On February 27, 2020, the twenty-second movie premiered exclusively on Netflix, being the first movie not available on Cartoon Network since the seventh.

Due to the delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the twenty-third season premiered on Cartoon Network on October 5, 2020, on the new 7:25 a.m. timeslot every Monday, but after the exhibition of Acertando as contas! started to air at 8:30 a.m. This is the first season to air with localized logo, episode title, Who's That Pokémon? segment, and credits on a TV channel, although the past eight seasons had already been localized for Pokémon TV. Starting on May 3, 2021, after airing 30 episodes, Cartoon Network started its first rerun of the season, with the debuts for the following episodes scheduled to start on Tuesday, June 1, replacing their reruns of the twenty-second season.

Alike the previous movie, Secrets of the Jungle was released only on Netflix on October 8, 2021.

The 12 first episodes of the twenty-fourth season were released exclusively on Netflix on Janurary 28, 2022.

Dubbing

The Brazilian dub is based on the English dubs by 4Kids Entertainment and The Pokémon Company International.

When Pokémon arrived in Brazil, the Latin American distributor of Pokémon (Televix, that works with Swen in Brasil) led it to be dubbed by Master Sound Studios in São Paulo. After the anime was shown to be successful in Brazil and around the world, the distributors brought the second season, this time dubbed by BKS, that changed the voices of the Narrator and Meowth. In addition, many voice actors in the series refused to dub at BKS and it took a lot of work to convince the original cast to come back.

The following year, Swen and Televix decided to change the dubbing studio again, especially after the controversy caused by BKS's dubbing of Sailor Moon R. The new studio that dubbed the third season of Pokémon was Parisi Video, also from São Paulo. Parisi Video went on to dub the fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons as well. Parisi brought the entire cast of the series back, but the company went bankrupt and was left unable to pay its employees. Thus, yet another dubbing studio had to be found.

Notably, the first three movies, as well as O Retorno de Mewtwo, were dubbed in Rio de Janeiro instead of São Paulo. Guilherme Briggs provided the voice of Mewtwo, while Márcio Simões temporarily replaced Meowth. Jirachi - Realizador de Desejos was almost dubbed in Rio at the Dublamix studio, with Gustavo Nader as Ash, but only Priscila Amorim as Jirachi and Felipe Grinnan as Butler recorded in Rio.

Centauro took over the anime from the seventh to the eighteenth season. In the transition, they managed to bring the main voice cast back, but changed the voices of almost all the supporting cast and extras. Nonetheless, the dub was so well-received that they ended up winning the 2006 Prêmio Yamato for "Best Redub or Sequel". Centauro also dubbed the spin-off series Pokémon Crônicas, which changed the voices of all supporting characters again, and was the first studio to also dub the movies, starting with Lucario e o Mistério de Mew.

In 2015, several early episodes had to be redubbed by Centauro, at the request of The Pokémon Company International, due to bad audio quality. These redubs have maintained most of the original cast intact and also didn't use the official translation glossary, with moves having the same name they had at the time, except Thunderbolt. These episodes include: Bulbasaur e a Vila Oculta, A Gangue das Bicicletas, Visita ao Vale do Sol, Bulbassauro... o Embaixador!, and Um Dilema Duplo. The fourth movie was also redubbed in 2015, but, unlike the episodes, both its opening and ending themes were played in English, instead of Brazilian Portuguese.

From the nineteenth to the twenty-second season, Pokémon was dubbed in Rio de Janeiro at MG Studios, which was also responsible for the dubbing of the online miniseries Pokémon Gerações. The original actors from São Paulo were completely replaced, including those that have been working on the dubbed anime since the first season (namely Fábio Lucindo as Ash, Isabel de Sá as Jessie, Márcio Araújo as James, and Armando Tiraboschi as Meowth). Part of the reason for this change was the fact that Fábio Lucindo moved to Portugal in 2015 to study in the University of Coimbra, and that DuArt Media Services replaced SDI Media Poland as the Latin American dubbing productor.[5] Despite this, Hoopa e o Duelo Lendário was dubbed by Lucindo and all of the original voice actors, likely due to it being part of Desafio em Kalos.

Due to the switch from DuArt Media Services to Iyuno-SDI Group (formerly known as Iyuno Media Group) that happened in the English dub between the twenty-second and twenty-third seasons, SDI Media Poland is again on charge of the Brazilian dub. Pokémon is now being dubbed at Double Sound, also in Rio de Janeiro, a dubbing studio infamous for delaying payments or simply not paying its employees at all, which lead to many of the voice actors (such as the voices of Ash, Delia, the Team Rocket trio, Officer Jenny, Kiawe, Gladion, and Mewtwo) refusing to reprise their roles if that meant working for them. Since then, the voices of Nurse Joy (Luisa Palomanes), Leon (Clécio Souto), and Raihan (Renan Freitas) have abandoned the series by virtue of delayed salaries, with reports of some other voice actors not getting paid for over four months.[6][7] Double Sound also dubbed Pokémon Evoluções.

In February 2021, the seventh movie was redubbed at Centauro in São Paulo for Star Channel, keeping most of the original cast, with the exception of Ash, who was voiced by his current voice actor, Matheus Perissé, a long-time Pokémon fan that had previously voiced Sawyer.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Brazilian dub stopped for over four months after Acertando as contas! had been dubbed, and after that time, some voice actors started voicing their characters remotely. For the first time since the original series, some episodes of season 23 were dubbed over the Japanese audio instead of English as a result of the pandemic.

On August 26, 2021, Pokémon Kids TV premiered on Pokémon TV, with their songs dubbed at Dubrasil in São Paulo. More songs were added to the service on October 15 of the same year.

Cast and crew

Despite having changed dubbing studios several times, the Brazilian dub of the Pokémon anime has maintained a fairly consistent voice cast when it comes to the main characters. The voice actors who have worked on the Brazilian dub of the main cast of the main series include:

Brazilian cover artwork for the Pokémon the Movie 2000 score

All of the Brazilian dub opening themes are translated versions of the North American ones. The first one was sung by Jana Bianchi and became a great success at the time of the "Pokémon boom".

Pokémon 2.B.A. Master was released in Brazil in two versions: the English-language 2.B.A. Master, and a Portuguese-language translation entitled Pokémon: Para Ser um Mestre. A Portuguese-language translation of Totally Pokémon was also released, entitled Totalmente Pokémon.

The Pokémon the First Movie and Pokémon the Movie 2000 soundtracks were released in Brazil as well. The soundtracks were identical to the English releases, but with the corresponding Portuguese-language movie opening theme added as a bonus track. The third movie soundtrack was also released in Brazil, featuring the Portuguese-language songs from Totalmente Pokémon in place of the English ones, as well as the Portuguese opening theme for the movie.

The score for the second movie was sold in Brazil as well.
