An eyecatch is a transitional feature between a commercial break and a television show that is present in most Japanese anime. In the rest of the world, the equivalents are commercial bumpers. The Pokémon anime has featured eyecatches from its very beginning. Sometimes in the Pokémon anime, the 12 seconds available is used for two 6 second eyecatches or one 12 second eyecatch.
