Pokémon video games
Various Pokémon games are sold in Iceland, but they are left in English. In Iceland, there were always two distributors selling games. The first one was from 1986 Bergsala AB and the second one was Hljomco HF. which was purchased in 1998 by Ormsson which sells Nintendo products to this day.
The anime started airing in 2000, though only first 54 episodes of the first season aired in Iceland. This was mostly due to the anime's low popularity in Iceland and it is unknown if reruns of the aired episodes still happen in the country. This dub has been known as a "lost dub" because none of the episodes and almost none of the movies have been released outside of Iceland for unknown reasons.
In Iceland, the anime is available on Netflix.
The first five movies were also dubbed. M01 was released on July 21, 2000, under the title Pokémon: Fyrsta myndin - Mewtwo á móti Mew. M02 was released later that year on December 26, 2000, under the title Pokémon 2: Vald eins. M03 was released on May 11, 2001 before being made available on DVD under the title Pokémon 3: Álög Unown. M04 was released on October 10, 2003 under the title Pokémon 4 - Að Eilífu. M05 was released on September 24, 2004 under the title Pokémon 5 - Hetjur.
An Icelandic subtitled version of Detective Pikachu was shown in cinemas on May 10, 2019.
