Pokémon in Finland

27 bytes removed, 27 June
Pokémon anime
Generally, episodes of the Pokémon anime air on Saturday and/or Sunday mornings on '''MTV3''', a Finnish commercial TV channel.
''[[S11|Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Battle Dimension]]'' has aired in Finnish on Jetix. When Jetix was replaced by Disney XD, Disney XD began to show reruns of ''Battle Dimension'' as well. Disney XD has also aired the [[M10|tenth]], [[M11|eleventh]], and [[M12|twelfth movies]].
MTV3's net-TV known as '''Katsomo''' started to upload the 11th season beginning on 11 May 2010 and finished the season in July 2010. New episodes were downloaded Mon-Fri by 18:00.

Many episodes were not shown in Finland for unknown reasons. The [[EP080|last episode of the first season]] and the entire [[S02|second season]] were skipped; and only about a half of the ''[[S03|Johto Journeys]]'', ''[[S04|Johto League Champions]]'', and the last 12 episodes of ''[[S05|Master Quest]]'' were shown. This happened also to ''Pokémon Advanced'', as only the first 26 episodes were shown.
This changed during ''[[S07|Advanced Challenge]]'', as it was the first-ever season to be shown completely in Finland. Every season after that has been broadcast in their entirety as well.
In Finland, the anime is available on [[Netflix]].
The aired episodes were originally dubbed in Finnish by '''Oy PVP-Voice Ab''' from seasons [[S01|seasons 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.
