Pokémon Sunday (ポケモン☆サンデー, Pokémon☆Sandē) was a Japanese Pokémon television variety show that ran on TV Tokyo from October 3, 2004 to September 26, 2010. It ran from the second part of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire to Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl. Pokémon Sunday was a sort of variety show featuring reruns of old episodes of the anime as well as a number of 'Research' episodes involving live-action elements. The show started out in the 8:00-8:30AM timeslot and was moved to the 7:30-8:30AM timeslot in October 2006. The show was originally hosted by Becky from 2004-2006 and was succeeded by Shoko Nakagawa in 2006 and later hosted its successors, Pokémon Smash!, Pokémon Get☆TV, Meet Up at the Pokémon House? and PokéDoko until 2023.

  • Location data exists for Pokémon Sunday in the Fourth Pokémon generation games. This was carried over into the Fifth Pokémon generation games, along with the addition of a Wonder Card for Pokémon Sunday; however, neither was ever used in the Fifth Pokémon generation games due to the premiere of Pokémon Smash! (Sunday's successor) prior to any event distributions.
