Mewtwo Returns also known had premiered on January 3, 2010 at 06:30-08:00 WIB before the usual series.

Dub and localization

Since SCTV, the Indonesian dub mainly based on the Japanese version; however, the proper names from the English version were used. The most known renamed main character Ash Ketchum, was given the dub name Ali, while the rest of them are based on their English name.

On Indosiar, the dub name Ali was left while his Japanese name, Satoshi was used instead, as well as using the mixture between the English and Japanese names for Pokémon and other things in some episodes cases, though this was not the case for the notable main characters; Satoshi, Kasumi, Takeshi, Musashi, Kojiro, Nyasu. However, the main characters that were introduced later such as May, Max, and Dawn were named in their English name instead of Japanese name. Since Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire, the Pokémon voices were also dubbed, notably including Ash's Pikachu, which probably the most controversial dub for the fans. Since a certain episode from Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl, the dub began to using the English version as localization (mostly for Pokémon names or characters of the day) and the Japanese script as the main translation, although this was not definite in some cases. The previous main characters were still retained in Japanese, possibly to avoid confusion for the audience.

In the movie theater Genesect and the Legend Awakened, the Japanese authority realized Ash's Indonesian dub name and decided to using the name alongside the retained English names for the rest characters. Although the voice actors was initially selected by audition, it was later decided that the dub will be following Indosiar version by using the voice actors from Pokémon the Series: Black & White.

As English recording was used on MNCTV for Pokémon the Series: XY, Ash's Pikachu's original voice was retained and English version were used for Pokémon names definitely. The dub also made its own version by using the literal Japanese pronunciation as name for main characters, for example: Citron is called Shitoron and Eureka is called Yurika.

For Pokémon series on Disney Channel and RTV, as well as Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution on Netflix, English names are used for characters and Pokémon, with Ash being referred to by his English name.

Several Pokémon episodes and movies were also sold in DVDs and VCDs in some regions and major towns of Indonesia, although most of them are unofficial or pirate versions. Most of them are dubbed in English or Mandarin and subtitled in Indonesian.

Pokémon manga

Indonesia is one of the few countries that publishes a translation of Pokémon Pocket Monsters by Kosaku Anakubo, licensed by Elex Media Komputindo in 2001. The main character Red was given the same dubbed name for main character in the anime, Ali, while his Clefairy was renamed as Kleferi. The localization mostly following the English version. However, some Pokémon names were also changed into its Indonesian names in this manga, usually adapted from its English name, such as Charizard, which was altered as Karizar.

Pocket Monsters manga releases were stopped on April 21, 2003 when volume 12 was running in publish until March 3, 2010, where Elex Media Komputindo published the volume 13. This series was ended by the last volume on April 2010. Since these two latest releases, Clefairy's name was reverted into its Japanese name, Pippi.

Magical Pokémon Journey and Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All, were also translated under the name Pokémon PiPiPi Adventure and Pokémon Petualangan Baru ("Pokémon New Adventure"), respectively. They were licensed by m&c!, the manga and comic publisher owned by Kompas Gramedia Group. Both of them had their original Japanese titles, even their Japanese script was retained on the side of their covers. There were only 7 volumes for PiPiPi Adventure and 4 volumes for Gotta Catch 'Em All.

There are the complete volumes of The Electric Tale of Pikachu under the name Kisah Pikachu yang Menggetarkan ("Shocking Tale of Pikachu"), as well as another version of Magical Pokémon Journey volume 1 under the direct translated title Petualangan Ajaib Pokémon, both were published by Panda Books. These manga are based on Chuang Yi's releases, since they share the same cover theme.

There are two movie adaptation manga by Kemon Kawamoto in Indonesian, Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel and I Choose You! Remix, which were published by Elex Media Komputindo on July 24, 2019 and September 16, 2019, respectively.

Pokémon Trading Card Game

Pre-official era

Before the Pokémon franchise, especially the Trading Card Game that was introduced officially, the Pokémon cards were introduced when they were imported by Sucianto, the founder of Planet Comics, the famous and the oldest Indonesian Comic Store.[67]

Many card sets and theme decks of Pokémon TCG have been sold in the Indonesia's convenience stores and malls starting from the very first TCG set, Base Set, both in English and are uncommon for Japanese versions. Fake cards and booster packs can be found easily with very low prices.

After the popularity began to widespread, several unofficial tournaments are held within the stores' locations in several cities such as Jakarta and Bandung.

Official era

The official Indonesian localization of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, known as Pokémon Game Kartu Koleksi (literally "Pokémon Collectible Card Game"), was officially licensed and distributed by Salim Group and AKG Games (PT Anugerah Kreasi Gemilang).[68][69] The cards released in Indonesia are localized and translated into the Indonesian language, which is the thirteenth language the TCG has been released in overall.

In May 2019, the Detective Pikachu promotional card with "PROMO" symbol and card number 001/SM-P was given as a purchase bonus for buying two tickets for the live action film POKÉMON Detective Pikachu in some parts of Indonesia. The Grand Launch Event was held at the Grand Attium in the mall of Kota Kasablanka in South Jakarta, between August 8 and 11, 2019,[70][71] which marks the release date of the first Indonesian set on 8 August 2019. The first set, Hantaman Pertama, is matching with the Thai version of First Impact set, which was released earlier that same year.

However, there are misprinted names in certain Pokémon cards,[72] which were brought from the previous errors in the official Indonesian Pokédex, such as Haunter (Hantu) and Electrode (Elektroda). The errata cards from First Impact and Legends Awakened sets can be traded at the location of the official tournaments.[73][74][75][76]

Indomaret, one of Indonesian modern market owned by Salim Group, was also made a promotional card giveaway as a bonus for purchasing the TCG products.

The promotional cards was made starting on December 15, 2021 to commomerate the 25th anniversary of Trading Card Game.

The numerous promotional cards were also available during the events of Pokémon Festival Jakarta. Two promotional Half Decks, Pikachu & Charizard Half Deck and Venusaur & Blastoise Half Deck, can be only obtained by participating the workshop for the players who have not participated at any official tournaments.

Ayo Main Pokémon, formerly known as IDpkmn, is an official Pokémon Trading Card Game-related website for Indonesian community.

Beginning from October 27, 2023, two major updates to the distribution of Pokémon TCG products in Indonesia are implemented. The first major update is the merge of various Japanese Pokémon TCG products into larger Indonesia-exclusive products; this is similar to how English-exclusive Pokémon TCG sets are created. The first set released with this update in mind is the Indonesian Black Shine expansion, which combines the Japanese Ruler of the Black Flame and Raging Surf sets. The second major update is the introduction of a new Pokémon TCG logo, to be used alongside the traditional Pokémon TCG logo on all Indonesian Pokémon TCG products, events, stores, and other related properties. The new logo features Pikachu on a Poké Ball background, with the name "Pokémon Game Kartu Koleksi Indonesia" written in all caps.

There is one TCG illustrator from Indonesia, Rianti Hidayat.
