Early this year, The Pokemon Company International announced it would be phasing out the Pokemon TV app. Available for almost 14 years, this free streaming service lets Pokemon fans watch episodes from the original saga, movies, and other titles from the series.

While the app has been unavailable for download for a few months now, the company started phasing out the service on March 28, 2024. At least until this past weekend, it was still possible to watch it on Smart TVs and iOS and Android. But now, the service has now been completely shut down.

The Pokemon Company says the app was sunset because they are exploring “other distribution platforms that make it even easier to access the ever-expanding library of Pokémon content.” Still, it’s unclear what the next step will be, as no plans have been announced.

If you want to watch the Pokemon anime, there are plenty of options like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and more. But it might be hard to find exactly what you want, as the show is shattered throughout several streaming services.
