Generation V
In the [[Pokémon World]], [[television]]s are one of the many {{ttsearch|household appliance|WouldSecret householdBase be the correct term?decoration|Ornament#TVs|TVs}} items in many homes. There are also many unique TV shows for a specific region. Televisions appear in both the games and the anime.
 
==Kanto=='''Televisions''' (also abbreviated '''TVs''') are part of the furniture in most houses in the [[Pokémon world]]. They debuted in [[Generation I]], but were merely for decoration until [[Generation III]]. They have also appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]].
In [[Kanto]], specifically in [[Generation I]] and {{gen|III}}, televisions were used for decoration purposes and had no unique TV show. Though the televisions does show a movie.

==Johto=Generation III===
ThereTelevision returned in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, replacing [[Generation II]]'s [[Goldenrod Radio Tower|radio broadcasts]] and served a purpose unlike the Generation I TVs. They were nopresent televisionsin most houses in [[JohtoHoenn]], but had a limited function, only showing programs when an event occurs, such as they[[Pokémon haveoutbreak|swarming beenPokémon]], replacedor when the {{player}} changes a Pokémon's nickname at the [[Name Rater]]. They may also show interviews with the player character, who answers by selecting words from a radiodrop-down list. When a program is airing, the television screen will flash, and will not cease flashing until the program has been watched. If an event has not happened to activate a television program, the screen will remain blank and the phrase "''Mom/Dad might like this program... better get going!''" will be played. The programming is organized by [[Hoenn TV]].
 
==Hoenn==In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, a key item called the {{DL|List of key items in Generation III|Teachy TV}} is given to the player at the start of the game. It airs the Poké Dude Show, where a character called the [[Primo|Poké Dude]] will instruct the player on basic gameplay elements like how to catch Pokémon and how to battle.
[[Hoenn]] was the first region to introduce interviews with the player.
