In use from 1984 to 2001, the first Shogakukan Video logo was seen on all VHS tapes from the company, including early Pokémon releases.

Original Japanese VHS releases of Pocket Monsters contained these logos. However, if the videos were released with English translating closed captions, the Shogakukan Video logos would be replaced by the full screen version of the regular Warner Home Video logo (to make it more suitable for non-Japanese audiences), before the Media Factory logo follows it.

The Shogakukan DVD logo debuted in late 2001.

From the 1980s to 1994, there were actually many different kinds of the first two warning screens/scrolls. The ones shown above were recreated into high-definition format.

Often presenting after this warning scroll is one of two old Korean video warnings. They're actually "parental discretion" video warnings, and were widely used on all South Korean VHS tapes, with the first one from March 1990 to March 1991, and the second from April 1991 to April 1994.

Beginning in Spring 1994, a new classification age rating disclaimer replaced the 1991-1994 video warning, when the "12+" and "15+" ratings changed colors (blue and yellow, respectively), while the "18+" rating remained red and the "All Ages" rating remained green. This also caused the 12+ and 15+ ratings to become legally restricted film ratings, where no one under those specific ages could rent or purchase such movies, as enforced by law.

Starting in late 1998, after the "ban for Japanese products" was lifted, all South Korean imports of VHS tapes contained another video warning, used until around mid-2004.
