Pokémon is a franchise consisting of video games, anime and other media owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. Since 1996 it has become the second most successful video game franchise in the world. The anime series, not sharing the canon with the video games, was first broadcast in 1997 and as of July 2020 has made over 1,100 episodes, spawning 16 movies and counting.

The anime follows Ash Ketchum, a young boy destined to become a Pokémon Master, his partner Pikachu, his group of fellow Pokémon trainers that differs every season, and usually his nemeses Jessie, James and their talking Meowth, three members of Team Rocket determined to steal every Pokémon they find. As of 2023, the anime features an entirely new cast, following protagonists Liko and Roy as they travel the world with an adventuring group called the Rising Volt Tacklers.
