The Pokemon TV app finally lands on Nintendo Switch

Nintendo, Switch

Pokemon fans now have even more ways to enjoy the sprawling franchise’s offerings on Nintendo Switch. The Pokemon TV app has hit the console. It includes hundreds of episodes of the Pokemon anime series. Including some full seasons, as well as animated specials.

Kids can also kick back and stream Pokemon Trading Card Game and video game competitions. There’s plenty for the youngest Pokemon fans as well. The Junior category includes sing-along songs, nursery rhymes, and more. Content in the free app is refreshed periodically.

Pokemon TV emerged in 2010 on the brand’s official website. Android and iOS apps followed in 2013. Though the Switch eShop has hundreds and hundreds of games, there are precious few media apps. You can fire up YouTube, Hulu, and Funimation but Netflix and Prime Video are nowhere to be seen.
