Dubbing
The aired episodes were originally dubbed in Finnish by '''Oy PVP-Voice Ab''' from seasons [[S01|1]] to [[S07|7]], a dubbing company known of its numerous dubbings on different cartoons. Seasons 5 to 7 were recorded in a former small municipality of {{wp|Kisko}} (nowadays part of the town of {{wp|Salo}}) in Southwest Finland instead of capital Helsinki. '''SDI Media''' has dubbed the series since ''[[S09|Pokémon: Battle Frontier]]''; season 8 was dubbed by '''Dubberman'''.
 
A unique feature of the Finnish dub (and other Nordic dubs) is that the names of Pokémon [[move]]s have been left in English. This hasn't always been the case, but this came into effect when the seasons 9 and 10 were aired in Finland. The reasons behind the change are a bit hazy, but it has been assumed that this is because the Pokémon games and TCG are published in English in Finland as well. At the same time, it has been inconsistent whether {{Abilities}} are translated or not. Until season 8, the names of the moves were said in Finnish. The Finnish dub is currently the only ongoing dub of the Pokémon anime in an Uralic language following the cancellation of the {{pmin|Hungary|Hungarian}} dub after season 12.
