The Pokémon Company have released a major update to their free Pokémon TV mobile and web app. The update includes a new and improved user interface and several new features, including the ability to download episodes for offline viewing.
The update should be hitting the App Store and Google Play stores today for iOS and Android mobile devices. The update is coming soon for Roku, Apple TV, Amazon, and Smart TVs. The update helps add many streaming features to the Pokémon which have become more common and standard thanks to Netflix and other streaming apps.
Now you can download a Pokémon episode or movie directly to your device. This allows you to watch it at any time, regardless of your internet connection. There’s no limit to how much you can store. However, videos will be automatically removed after a week.
The new update also adds Pokémon Trainer Club integration. By signing in with your account, you can watch episodes or movies from multiple devices, and it will remember where you left off. And optional push notifactions will alert you to when new episodes and movies have been added.
Currently the Pokémon TV app offers the following full seasons:
- Pokémon the Series: Indigo League (this is the original 90s show)
- Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon
- Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon – Ultra Adventures
- Pokémon Generations
- Pokémon Origins
The latest full length animated film, Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, is also available to watch for a limited time. Note that you can find certain Pokémon TV seasons on other sites, such as Sun & Moon – Ultra Adventures on Disney XD and the first season of Indigo League on Netflix.
