Pokémon TV app out on Switch with ‘hundreds’ of show episodes

Pokémon TV app Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch has just received a new app, Pokémon TV, containing hundreds of episodes of the Pokémon animated series, along with video game and trading card game competitions, and the available content will cycle out periodically to keep things fresh. There is also a
“Junior” category of Pokémon TV with things like sing-alongs and nursery rhymes (how cute). Nintendo of America has released a tiny video clip to advertise the launch:

Here is the Nintendo Switch eShop description for Pokémon TV:

Enjoy the adventures of Ash, Pikachu, and their friends—along with animated specials and highlights of Pokémon Championship tournaments.

Hours Upon Hours of Pokémon Fun!
Find loads of great Pokémon content to watch in one convenient place—hundreds of episodes (including full seasons), animated specials, and thrilling Pokémon Trading Card Game and video game competitions. Content changes periodically!

Fun Videos for Little Pokémon Fans!
The Junior category includes videos to entertain younger Trainers. Kids can join in with sing-along songs, hear popular nursery rhymes, and more!

The Pokémon TV app is a great way for fans to enjoy their favorite episodes and relive incredible battles from Championship competitions!

There’s somehow still no Netflix on Nintendo Switch, but this is a decent and surprising consolation.
