'''Baseball''' is a popular sport in the [[Pokémon world]]. It is usually represented through episodes of the [[Pokémon anime]] that feature {{an|Casey}}, a big fan of baseball.
Three episodes have featured baseball as a major theme:
Other episodes with Casey have had a more minor mention of baseball, usually through her singing the Electabuzz song.
To include the spirit of Pokémon, the teams are all named after a particular species:
* The {{p|Electabuzz}}: Casey's favourite team. Their star pitcher is [[Corey Demario]].
* The {{p|Magikarp}}s: Despite their name, {{Ash}} claims that they are a more successful team than the Electabuzz.
* The inclusion of baseball in Pokémon, where the focus is on [[Pokémon battle]]s, is likely due to its high popularity in Japan. During the baseball season, it is common for there to be weeks where no new episode of Pokémon airs due to [[TV Tokyo]] choosing to broadcast the game instead.
* [[Brock]] used baseball as a theme when he made an appeal with [[his {{TP|Brock's Sudowoodo|his Bonsly]]|Sudowoodo}} in the contest in ''[[AG167|What I Did for Love]]''. He pitched baseballs to Bonsly, who caught and juggled them.
