The anime has aired in 169<ref>[https://www.pokemon.co.jp/corporate/en/services/ ''Pokémon in Figures'' - The Pokémon Company] (retrieved June 2, 2020)</ref> {{cat|Pokémon around the world|different countries and regions}} in over 30 [[Dub|languages]]. It is available on [[Netflix]] in 217 countries with different dubs and subtitles, and all countries except Japan and South Korea have at least English audio<ref>[http://unogs.com/title/80186475 ''Pokémon the Series'' - Unofficial Netflix Online Global Search] (retrieved June 2, 2020)</ref>. [[The Pokémon Company International]] usually refers to the anime as the "Pokémon animated series" or "Pokémon television series", while some [[event Pokémon]] based on Pokémon from the anime have their location set as "the Pokémon cartoon" in the English version of the games. It is also referred to formally as '''''Pokémon the Series''''' (Japanese: '''テレビアニメ「ポケットモンスター」シリーズ''' ''TV Anime "Pocket Monsters" Series'').
 
 
==Overview==
The show is mainly aimed at children, and as such, mature topics such as death are not often brought up, though sometimes they appear in some episodes, and most notably in movies. Many Pokémon that are implied to be violent or sinister in the games are also made to be less aggressive. There are generally some references meant for adults, though these are kept to a minimum especially outside of Japan.

==Movies==
The movies are not considered by all people to be canon to the show, with some preferring to think of them occurring in an alternate timeline. This theory comes from the fact that {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} do not seem to be profoundly affected in the show by the events of the movies, which tend to have a lot of peril and drama. Others, however, see the movies as being akin to [[filler episode]]s, as none of their [[party|parties]] change, and no [[Gym Leader]]s are defeated nor [[Pokémon Contest]]s won. This is presumably the correct interpretation, as not only have most of the events of the movies been referenced at least peripherally in the show, but also, several of the events of even ''major'' episodes have been forgotten by the writers of later episodes.
