"pamatovat se" requires the "na" preposition and and an object in accusative. Usually it is for remembering some older events, your youth, etc.

"pamatovat si" takes a direct object in accusative.

just "pamatovat" with a direct object means you are old enough to remember something

"pamatovat" + "na" + an object is to keep something in mind, not forget something "zákon na to pamatuje" "the law counts with this"
