On September 4, 2000, {{wp|Polsat}} started to air the [[Pokémon anime]] on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. The first 104 episodes aired without any breaks until mid 2001. At the end of 2001, the next 52 episodes started to air.
 
After a short break, ''[[Pokémon: Johto League ChampionsS04|Johto League Champions]]'' premiered from September to December 2002. This season was moved to an earlier timeslot, when most Polish children were in school. Likely due to this, and because of a lack of payment to the Polish voice actors, there were no new episodes until 2004.
 
New episodes were shown on Sunday mornings (and later also on Saturdays) until April 2005. Some of the recurring characters like {{Tracey}}, [[Nurse Joy]] and [[Officer Jenny]] had their voice actors changed in this new season. Shortly after this, at May 19, 2005, {{wp|TV 4 (Poland)|TV 4}} started to air the series and, without any breaks, showed the first 260 episodes, on afternoons from Monday to Thursday, followed by first airing of ''[[S06|Pokémon: Advanced]]'' on September 11, 2006. New episodes ended in December 2006 and only reruns were shown until August 2008.
 
Reruns of the first three seasons have also aired on Fox Kids (later renamed Jetix) until September 2006. However, this version was censored (compared to the episodes shown by Polsat and TV 4, which were based on the [[4Kids Entertainment|4Kids]] dub) and several scenes were cut.
 
Jetix started to air brand-new ''[[S10|Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl]]'' episodes on December 1, 2008. This season infamously recast the entire series with completely new voice actors. Airing of this season ended in January 2009 and there have been no reruns since.
 
In February 2009, Jetix aired the first 26 episodes of ''[[Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Battle DimensionS11|Battle Dimension]]'', with most of the original cast restored. The next 13 episodes aired in April. The last 13 episodes were at first planned for May, later moved to August, but ultimately did not air until November 2009 on Disney XD. The [[M11|eleventh movie]] also premiered in November.
 
From May to August 2009, {{wp|Polsat}} aired the sixth season on Sunday mornings. They have ceased to air any episodes from the [[original series]].
 
''[[Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Galactic BattlesS12|Galactic Battles]]'' season debuted on Disney XD on 3 July 2010. The [[M12|twelfth movie]] aired first time on 2 October 2010. On 7 March 2011, first episode of [[S13|Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Sinnoh League Victors]] aired on Disney XD; this season is the first to have season logo episode titles in Polish rather than English (previously the Polish version was only spoken), this also applies to "To Be Continued" text. It's also the first one with credits showing staff and voice actors responsible for dubbing. The [[M13|thirteenth movie]] premiered on 27 August 2011.
 
''[[Pokémon: Black & WhiteS10|Black & White]]'' season debuted on Disney XD on 2 January 2012, while [[Pokémon Black & White: Rival DestiniesS15|Rival Destinies]] started on 4 November 2012. Reshiram version of [[M14|fourteenth movie]] aired on 27 May 2012 while the Zekrom version debuted in DVD format on 25 October 2012. The [[M15|fifteenth movie]] aired on 23 June 2013. First episode of [[S16|Pokémon Black & White: Adventures in Unova]] aired on 7 October 2013. The [[M16|sixteenth movie]] aired on 7 September 2014.
 
In September 2014, Disney XD aired the first 16 episodes of [[XY {{series|XY series]]}}. After two months in 3 November 2014 Disney XD started airing the next 16 episodes (without [[XY024|XY024]]).
===Movies===
In 2001, ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'' and ''[[M02|The Power of One]]'' premiered in Polish cinemas and later both movies were also released on VHS and DVD. In 2002 ''[[M03|Spell of the Unown: Entei]]'' and ''[[Mewtwo Returns]]'' were released directly to VHS and DVD. All movies were distributed by Warner Bros. Poland. All movies also later aired on HBO and HBO 2 channels. The first movie also aired on Cinemax and Cinemax 2 in 2008 and 2009.
