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.

An '''{{wp|Bumper (broadcasting)#Japan|eyecatch}}''' (Japanese: '''アイキャッチ''' ''eyecatch'') is a transitional feature in the [[Pokémon anime]] that appears between {{wp|Television advertisement|commercial break}}s during an [[episode]]. Sometimes, the 12 seconds available are used for two 6-second eyecatches or a single 12-second eyecatch.
   
==Original Japanese==
+
The only eyecatch retained for Western audiences was ''Dare da?'' (Japanese, kana: だれだ?; translation: ''Who is it?''), which became ''[[Who's That Pokémon?]]''. Unlike its Japanese counterpart, it continued well into the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, ending with ''[[AG040|Watt's with Wattson?]]''. It was replaced by ''[[Pokémon Trainer's Choice]]'', starting with ''[[AG041|What You Seed is What You Get]]'' and ending with ''[[AG145|Pasta La Vista]]'', when eyecatches disappeared in the [[dub]]. ''Who's That Pokémon?'' later returned in ''[[BW001|In The Shadow of Zekrom!]].'' With that, the English dub episodes of {{series|Diamond & Pearl}} are the only ones with no eyecatch entirely.

==Trivia==
 
* The only eyecatch retained for Western audiences was Dare Da?, which became "Who's That Pokémon?". Unlike its Japanese counterpart, however, it continued well into the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, ending in ''[[AG040|Watt's with Wattson?]]'' and being replaced by [[Pokémon Trainer's Choice]] until ''[[AG145|Pasta La Vista]]'', when eyecatches disappeared in the dub, but then returned in ''[[BW001|In The Shadow of Zekrom!]].''
 
** Then, it went away in ''[[BW003|A Sandile Gusher of Change!]]'' before returning again in ''[[BW004|The Battle Club and Tepig's Choice!]]''. The reason for the brief absence is unknown.
 
** The second airing of ''[[BW003|A Sandile Gusher of Change!]]'' showed it with the featured Pokémon being Sandile.
 
* {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} feature eyecatches when the player enters certain locations.

This article is about the the anime transitional feature. For the images seen in some games when locations are entered, see location preview.

An eyecatch (Japanese: アイキャッチ eyecatch) is a transitional feature in the Pokémon anime that appears between commercial breaks during an episode. Sometimes, the 12 seconds available are used for two 6-second eyecatches or a single 12-second eyecatch.

The only eyecatch retained for Western audiences was Dare da? (Japanese, kana: だれだ?; translation: Who is it?), which became Who's That Pokémon?. Unlike its Japanese counterpart, it continued well into the Advanced Generation series, ending with Watt's with Wattson?. It was replaced by Pokémon Trainer's Choice, starting with What You Seed is What You Get and ending with Pasta La Vista, when eyecatches disappeared in the dub. Who's That Pokémon? later returned in In The Shadow of Zekrom!. With that, the English dub episodes of Diamond & Pearl series are the only ones with no eyecatch entirely.
