Despite being a Japanese Anime, this show has always been targeted towards an American audience. This is because the video games Pokemon Blue and Red and trading card games were more popular in the USA than in Japan. Thus, the english versions of the first 4 seasons were made before the Japanese versions. Ash in the English versions name isn't Satoshi, and some names of pokemon are respelled english words. Not only that, the characters mouth movements match what they're saying in English, and sometimes they don't match with what they're saying in Japanese. However, 4k entertainment did have a hand in changing the food that they eat. See more
