Pokemon TV

Pokemon TV just got added to the Roku. It looks like there's about 50 episodes. The video quality seems to be SD, but it's free and I didn't see any commercials.

I probably have all these episodes on tape, but this might be a good incentive to try to get my Roku set up to see how these look. (It's still in the box from when I bought it at Radio Shack a year or two ago.)

BTW, the new Pokemon season starts this Saturday, Feb. 7 on Cartoon Network, 8AM, EST.

Re: Pokemon TV

Not free, obviously, but Netflix also has a ton of Pokemon.

Thanks for the heads up on the new season, Ash, I'll be watching with my daughter.

Re: Pokemon TV

Didn't realize the new TV season, Sun and Moon, moved to Disney XD. They have the first two episodes streaming, otherwise I think it starts in January. The animation is very different.

Yeah, I just found out myself--and I missed the latest Pokémon movie, which ran on Disney and not CN. How were we supposed to know?

Re: Pokemon TV

The movie was still available on demand (on DIRECTV at least) and streaming (once linked to your cable/satellite account). That's how I downloaded it for the kids.

Re: Pokemon TV

Weird I did a search early this morning for sun and moon on DIRECTV and it didn't find anything, so I figured it wasn't going to be on yet.

I watched the movie and the two episodes--three hours of Pokémon on the last day of the year. I enjoyed the movie and wish I'd seen it on the big screen.

The jury's still out on the Sun & Moon episodes. It's a got a whole new design style. Ash looks quite different and wears different clothes. It's set in the "Alola Islands," i.e. Hawaii. It plays like a prequel to the main series since he's traveling with his mother and he looks and acts younger.

Re: Pokemon TV

Yeah that's what I meant when I said the animation is very different, a lot softer and more fluid but definitely a bit jarring. Poor Serena was thrown aside just like Misty, it seems.

I wish they'd do a spin-off series with her. I consider her the most interesting female character the franchise has ever had. Remember when she first cut her hair and changed her outfit?
