571 bytes added, 23:01, 5 January 2018
The Latin American dub of the Pokémon anime is recorded and produced in Mexico. The series has been dubbed by five different companies. Originally, dubbing production was conducted by the company '''Audiomaster 3000''' of {{wp|Televisa}}, which dubbed the series from the [[S01|first season]] until the first episodes of ''Pokémon: Advanced Challenge''. Audiomaster 3000 went out of business in 2005, leaving the [[S07|seventh season]] incomplete.
On the first season, initially used the Spain translation in some terms, like moves and cities (except [[Fuchsia City]]), due to the launch of Red and Blue in Spanish.
Thus, the series was rushed to '''Candiani Dubbing Studios''', which dubbed the series until mid-2009, with many mistakes of pronunciation and changing voices of several characters, without changing the names of cities and attacks.
On September 26, 2009, '''AF The Dubbing House''' confirmed on their [ Twitter] that they would start dubbing ''[[S12|Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Galactic Battles]]'', indicating that they were the new dubbing company for the series. This company changed the voices of several main characters and terminology used (moves and citiescity names from the {{pmin|Spain|Spanish localization}}), but was able to return Gabo Ramos to the role of Ash Ketchum, because this actor has spent a recurrence in Argentina.
Since the thirteenth season until eighteenth season, the series iswas being dubbed by '''SDI Media de Mexico''' as reported in November 2010 via Eduardo Garza's [ Twitter], which reported that he would be the dubbing director and asked for help to the fans to return to each character's original voice except for Ash's. The thirteenth season had more mistakes than the previous season, due to the terminology used (attack names from the {{pmin|Spain|Spanish localization}}), but several of these incoherences were corrected in the fourteenth season.
For unknown reasons dubbing changed to '''Jarpa Studio Mexico''' in collaboration with [[DuArt Film & Video]] since nineteenth season, with distribution going back completely to TPCI.
The Latin American dub is based on the English dubs by [[4Kids Entertainment]] and [[The Pokémon Company International]], retaining all of their character names, Pokémon names, and any cuts or alterations present in the English dub. 4Kids entirely distributed their dub, but currently, TPCI only licenses the dub while [ Televix Entertainment] was responsible for distributing the series in the Latin American market from 1998 until mid-2010 because TPCI decided change to SDI Media Poland. however sinceIn 2016 TPCI isstarted thedistributing newcompletely responsiblethe forseries distributingin theLatin seriesAmerica.
