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 region 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, 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


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 regions 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 region. The United Kingdom service uses the same schedule in regard to the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh regions, but has a different schedule for Unova with showings being 33 episodes ahead of the US. 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 2, 4, 7, 11, 15 and 17 are being aired. The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Animated Specials are also available in the United States only.

French, German, Italian, and Iberian Spanish

The French, German, Italian, and Iberian Spanish services show the episodes on a shared schedule. While there are five different episode categories like the English versions, they are instead categorized by the episode season with only two regions being available at a time. Each season 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 2, 4, 7, 11, 15 and 17 are being aired. Both the website and the mobile app are available in these languages.

Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, and Russian

Some languages have Pokémon TV available on the website only. The mobile app is unavailable in these languages, defaulting to United States English. The Pokémon TV service in these languages shows a complete season at a time with no rotations, but the update schedules are unclear. They currently have the seasons separated into two categories; these being season 10 and 11. They are also showing the third Pokémon movie.

Brazilian Portuguese and Swedish

Brazil and Sweden also have Pokémon TV available on the website only. Each season shows ten episodes (in release order) that rotate every Friday. They currently have four categories showing seasons 10, 11, 12 and 13. They are also showing the third Pokémon movie.

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.
