Pokémon TV is an application that contains various videos related to the Pokémon franchise. The app features hundreds of episodes from the Pokémon TV series, including full seasons. There are also special animation features that can only be found on the app.
In addition to the more iconic content, viewers can also follow competitive matches from the mainline Pokémon games, as well as tournaments for the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The app will also occasionally receive a Kids category, which will include video content geared toward younger viewers, like sing-alongs and popular children’s songs. Pokémon TV will rotate what’s available to watch, so be sure to keep an eye on the season you’re watching or it will disappear faster than Entei in tall grass.
