An '''{{wp|eyecatch}}''' (Japanese: '''アイキャッチ''' ''eyecatch'') is a transitional feature between a {{wp|Television advertisement|commercial break}} and a {{wp|television program}} that originated in Japan and is present in most {{wp|anime}} and {{wp|tokusatsu}} shows. In other countries, mainly the United States and the United Kingdom, the equivalents are "{{wp|Bumper (broadcasting)|bumpers}}".

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.
   
The {{pkmn|anime|Pokémon anime}} has featured eyecatches from its very beginning. 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 {{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.
   
{{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} have been the only [[core series]] {{pkmn|games|Pokémon games}} so far to feature eyecatches, presenting them when the {{player}} enters specific 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.
