The Pokémon franchise first reached '''{{wp|Portugal}}''' around 1999, when the {{pkmn|anime}} started to be broadcast on SIC.
==Pokémon video games==
All Pokémon video games werehave been released in Portugal in English. However, the box features a sticker with a Portuguese translation that is glued over the information on various other languages (English, French, German, and Dutch) and instruction booklets in both English (in color) and a black -and -white copy translated into European Portuguese.

The television station that started broadcasting the Pokémon anime in Portugal is '''SIC''', ''{{tt|Sociedade Independente de Comunicação|Independent Communication Company}}'', a station based in {{wp|Lisbon}} that was owned by a consortium led by Francisco Pinto Balsemão, and backed by Controljornal (now Impresa Jornais, a holding that contains Impresa's newspapers and magazines), Impala Editores, BPI and {{wp|Rede Globo|Rede Globo}}. It is the third terrestrial television station in Portugal, launched on October 6, 1992. It aired the seasons 1-10, includingand ''[[Pokémon Chronicles]]'', havingand had several breaks in the process. The show aired in an irregular pattern, shifting from 6 A.M. to 10 A.M., but always in the same programing block, named '''[email protected]'''. The seasonsSeasons 1-9 were dubbed in the '''Nacional Filmes''' studio, in Lisbon.
The ''[[S10|Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl]]'' season was dubbed in the '''Dialectus''', a studio, located in Lisbon too. It premiered on SIC on January 31, 2009, airing more or less consistently one new episode each Saturday, around 7 A.M. After [[DP037]] aired on October 4, 2009, the show went on a hiatus.

In Fall 2010, the rights to the series were purchased by another Portuguese channel, '''Panda Biggs'''. Production of the dub was moved into the '''Cinemágica''' studio in Porto, which meantled to replacement of the entire voice cast. TPCi took over the control of the series, adding a Portuguese subtitle below most of the season titles' English names', retaining the episode titles written in European Portuguese introduced in the ''Pokémon: Diamond & Pearl'' season, editing the ending credits with information from the localPortuguese dub staff and replacing the "To be continued..." message with a translated one. It became known that the series' translator would be '''Sérgio Figueiredo'''.

Notably, this version had fixed some audio errors in the dub, along with replacing select lines from the original dub with ones of the new actors, which were presumed by the fans to be tests for the new voice cast.
