Pokémon in Vietnam

Pokémon anime
In winter 2013, {{wp|HTV3}}, a cable channel focused on children and families, created a poll on their website for everyone to vote for programs they would like to see aired on HTV3. HTV3 is well-known for dubbing all of the programs they air on their channel. Pokémon was one of the choices, and within a few weeks, it was announced that HTV3 would air the Pokémon anime for the first time on January 25, 2014. The series began on HTV3 with the {{series|Best Wishes}}, which currently airs on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9:30am, with the same episode repeating again at 5:30pm on the same day.
 
The Vietnamese dub on HTV3 is based directly on the Japanese version. Pokémon and characters are referred by their Japanese names, while [[move]], [[abilityAbility]] and [[item]] names are translated into Vietnamese. Unlike HTV3's other shows, the original Japanese themes are used, rather than themes dubbed in Vietnamese. The songsongs ''{{so|Best Wishes!}}'' and ''[[Fanfare of the Heart]]'' are used as the opening and ending themes for the whole series, even after the points which they would have been switched in the Japanese version. Beginning from [[BW070]], a subtitled Vietnamese translation of the lyrics to ''Fanfare of the Heart'' began airing with the ending theme.
 
A controversy arose with fans due to HTV3 re-dubbing many of the Pokémon cries (except for [[Ash's Pikachu]]), despite that the Pokémon names are the same as in the Japanese version.
