The Pokémon franchise was first introduced in Thailand around 2007. The series is popular among kids and adults equally. The Pokémon are usually referred by their Japanese or English name among fans. In Thai script, Pokémon is written as โปเกมอน Pokémon.

Pokémon video games

In Thailand, the main series video games are very popular as side-series games are rare to find. The video games are sent to Thailand in their Japanese version. Afterwards, the English version will become available. However, the English versions are more popular than the Japanese version. As with the anime, there are many illegal copies sold in Thailand.
