Pocket Monster TV is a segment used in the original Japanese version from "The Wayward Wobbuffet" to "Hoenn Alone!", replacing Dare da?. The following is a list of these segments. The Pokédex number (and in the updated 16:9 version, a silhouette) of a Pokémon are displayed on-screen and the viewer is to guess the answer before the commercial break is over and the Pokémon is revealed. Unlike the Dare da? segments, the kids' voices are changed to a computerized voice and this is the only time within the original Japanese version that the eyecatch is actually explicitly referred to as "Who's That Pokémon?" in English, as it is referred to in the spoken audio.
On TX Network channels and Kids Station, these episodes were broadcast with the segments in 4:3 resolution using the original version with the grid background. When the series was released on VHS and Amazon Prime Video, these episodes retroactively received the updated versions of the segment as well.
These episodes featured an updated version of the segment in which the segment is displayed a widescreen/16:9 resolution and the background is revamped to show several Poké Balls, yellow-colored text, and a rainbow-colored design around the Poké Ball seen at the bottom left. This version is used on these episodes even on televised broadcasts.
