Pokémon TV is a free video service provided by The Pokémon Company International that provides select episodes of the Pokémon anime to viewers. It was first accessible to users in November 2010. Episodes are divided by series or by seasons with the viewable episodes being rotated out over time. It can be viewed through the Internet with a web browser or by downloading the free "Pokémon TV" app on the App Store for iOS and tvOS (Apple TV), on Google Play for Android and Chromecast devices, on Amazon for the Amazon Fire TV, and on the Roku Channel Store for Roku devices.

Available content

English

There are two English versions of the service, a United States and a United Kingdom version. Both the website and the mobile app are available for both versions. On the United States service, all six series are available with ten episodes for each. Each Friday, the episodes showing are rotated, removing the earliest five and adding the next five of a series. The United Kingdom service generally uses the same schedule. The new episodes rotate identically with the US version with both regions updating at the same time, but the UK is updated on Saturdays rather than Fridays due to time zone differences. In addition, specials shown on the US and UK services may differ.

The US version is accessed through the US website or, in the case of the mobile app, having the device set to United States English or an unsupported language. The UK version is accessed through the UK website or using the app with the device set to United Kingdom English.

Currently, seasons 1, 4, 6, 7, 10, 15, 16, 17, and 18, and "Fire-Type Fun" are being aired. Pokémon the Series: XYZ is also being rotated in the United States, with one episode being added and another one removed every week, but only the first two episodes of this season are available in the United Kingdom.

French, German, Italian, and Castilian Spanish

The French, German, Italian, and Castilian Spanish services show the episodes on a shared schedule. Like the English versions, there are six different episode categories. Each category shows ten episodes (in release order) that rotate each Friday, with the episode showing being similar to the English versions in that it removes the earliest five and adds the next five. Currently, seasons 1, 4, 6, 7, 10, 15, 16, 17, and 18, "Fire-Type Fun", Pokémon: The First Movie, and the first two episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ are being aired. Both the website and the mobile app are available in these languages.

Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish

These languages' services also show the episodes on a shared schedule, but unlike the other languages, the service is divided by seasons. Each season shows ten episodes (in release order) that rotate every Friday. They currently have four to five categories showing the following seasons:

  • Danish - Seasons 12, 13, 14, and 15, and the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ;
  • Dutch - Seasons 10, 11, 12, and 13, the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, and Pokémon: The First Movie;
  • Finnish - Seasons 8, 16, 17, and 18, the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, and Pokémon: The First Movie;
  • Norwegian - Seasons 1, 16, 17, and 18, the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, and Pokémon: The First Movie;
  • Brazilian Portuguese - Seasons 9, 10, 11, and 12, the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, and Pokémon: The First Movie;
  • Russian - Seasons 13, 14, 15, and 16, and Pokémon: The First Movie;
  • Swedish - Seasons 13, 14, 15, and 16, and the first eleven episodes of Pokémon the Series: XYZ.

Other languages

Despite Brazil and Spain having Pokémon TV, Portugal, Argentina and Chile do not have their own website to distribute the service and instead prompts the user to redirect to the official North American site.

Languages other than these or the ones with more support are unavailable in the service.
