PocketMonsters Fansubs is a fansubbing group subtitling the Japanese Pokémon anime in English. They also own PocketMonsters.net.[1]

The group started subtitling in 2008 with DP094, and they regularly subbed every episode from the main series from that point up to 2017 with SM049. They also subbed the corresponding movies, trailers and similar promotional material. Separate translators had subtitled earlier episodes, which were released on an irregular schedule.

Names of characters and Pokémon are kept in Japanese, while location names, etc. are handled in a way that, according to the group, best represents the intention of the original name. If the official English games use a name that works as a straight translation of the Japanese, this name will typically be used by them to lessen confusion. All Pokémon moves use the name from the official English video games.

The group has been inactive since November 2018, with their final release being SM091. However, no actual plans of discontinuation have been announced.
