* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Six distinct series (original: 1997-2002; ''Advanced Generation'': 2002-2006; ''Weekly Pokémon Broadcast'''s sidestory episodes (US: ''Pokémon Chronicles''): 2002-2004; ''Diamond & Pearl'': 2006-2010; ''Best Wishes'': 2010-2013); ''XY'' (2013-2016); ''Sun & Moon'' (2017-present) and 20+ annual movies. The anime franchise is just about as big, if not bigger, than the actual video game franchise; see below.)
** In the English dub, the main series anime gets divided up even more, in a setup like typical television seasons.

Franchises are more common in other countries, especially in the {{Anime}} and {{Toku}} genres of Japan. However, they are frequently implemented by way of [[AlternateContinuity Alternate Continuities]] that employ the same core cast in slightly (or greatly!) different settings, rather than alternate casts in the same continuity. This version is also very common in video games.
