Collection includes the first three movies along with some from the fourth generation.
Second Update – May 27, 2020: Two new movies joined the roster while Pokemon: The First Movie leaves. 14 movies total are available now.
Update – May 8, 2020: The Pokemon Company have added a number of movies to the lineup, finishing the Diamond and Pearl set of movies and introducing the complete lineup of Black and White inspired Pokemon movies. 13 total movies are now on offer. The original story follows.
In a world where many of us are forced to stay at home, streaming has become a major source of entertainment, driven both by shared experiences and a sense of warm nostalgia.
There’s something to be said about moving off of Netflix and Disney+ yet–I’ve felt like I’ve seen everything there is to offer on both services for the past week, though that may just be their recommendations algorithms–for a respite with familiar friends and storylines. Oh, and Pokemon TV is free, which is nice.
The current movie list includes:
- Pokemon: The First Movie
- Pokemon the Movie 2000
- Pokemon 3: The Movie
- Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew
- Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea
- Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai
- Pokemon: Giratine & the Sky Warrior
The Pokemon Company says more movies will be added each week for viewing though it’s unclear if and when all movies will be freely accessible. It’s hard to imagine either of the newest films–set in something of an alternative timeline–make the cut. So, too, is it unlikely movies based around the third or sixth generations of games will be available as their respective tv series aren’t on the service either.
