The Pokémon anime first reached Denmark in January 2000, with the first broadcast of Pokémon - Jeg vælger dig!. In Denmark, Bergsala A/S owns the franchise.

Pokémon video games

Pokémon games sold in Denmark are in English, and are released at the same time as in the rest of Europe. The only game released in Danish is Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, but only the interface had been translated and the cards themselves remained in English.

Events

Event Pokémon distributed in Denmark include Movie 11 Shaymin in 2009 and Michina Arceus in 2010.

Pokémon anime

The Pokémon anime is broadcasted on Disney XD (previously known as Fox Kids and later Jetix) and on-demand on Netflix (Only Indigo League and all three seasons of Black and White. But more will come)

Who's That Pokémon? and the Pokérap were omitted in some airings of the first two seasons because of commercial issues, but appeared on the VHS releases.

EP105 was the last episode to air before a three season break on Danish television. The Pokémon anime would not return until EP263 leaving no explanation as to why the episodes in between where never aired. Therefore only the last 12 episodes of the Johto saga aired on Danish television. Much of the cast had been replaced, meaning that some recurring characters had gotten new voices. For example Misty, Professor Oak and Gary.

Skipping directly from Pokémon: Advanced Battle to Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl, Pokémon: Battle Frontier was not aired until after Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl.

In Denmark the anime is available on Netflix.

Community

PokeTeam is a Danish website that finds Pokémon related news items and translate them into Danish. After the official Danish Pokémon forum closed, many fans have turned to PokeTeam. Since 2013 a new version of Poketeam has been under construction following the closing of the old site.

In 2009, like Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the Netherlands, Denmark held a Pokémon Day 2009. It was a small event which included a download of Shaymin, a drawing contest, and a screening of the Danish dub of The Rise of Darkrai.

In 2015, a new Danish Pokémon community named PokeMania was launched. It is an interactive website with a forum. The layout of the website has similarities with the old version of PokeTeam. However, PokeMania does not focus on information about Pokémon as PokeTeam did. Though, it communicate about Pokémon news in Danish.

Trivia

  • In the Danish versions of the opening themes prior to Unbeatable, all lyrics referencing the season titles are replaced.
  • The continuity of the anime dub is very inconsistent between seasons. In the first seasons (1-2 & 5-8), attack names, Pokémon types and Pokédex species are translated. (For example, Water Gun is translated into Vandkannon). However, in the later seasons, attack names are not translated. In the Black & White seasons, neither attack names nor Pokédex are translated. Other words such as badges and gyms have changed from Danish to English or simply just gotten a new word.
  • Even though the games have never been translated into Danish, older fans often refer to the main series games of the first two generations with literal translation of their names, for instance, fans call Pokémon Red Version Pokémon Rød, Pokémon Yellow Version Pokémon Gul and Pokémon Gold Version Pokémon Guld.
  • In Address Unown! Unown is called Ukendt, which is the Danish word for unknown.
  • In Challenge of the Samurai Kakuna is called Puppe, which is the Danish word for cocoon.
  • The seasons The Johto Journeys, Johto League Champions along with 53 Master Quest episodes (including the banned EP250) were never aired in Denmark. Charizard Chills was the last episode dubbed in Danish prior to Address Unown!.
