One of the most fractured IPs in the United States, the animated series continues. Netflix is the only place to watch the most recent seasons of shows and movies; however, previous seasons are dispersed or not available on any streaming service.
Pokèmon animated web series
According to Screen Rant, one of the most popular Pokèmon games is getting a new animated web series. Pikachu and friends are still going strong nearly three decades after their debut, dominating the market with a bevy of video games, animated adventures, and, of course, limitless merchandise.
While the franchise’s on-screen adaptations have remained popular, Pokèmon has remained an RPG genre mainstay. Pokèmon Legends: Arceus, Game Freaks’ first open-world Pokèmon adventure, was released last year. The game sets before modern Pokèmon games, had all-new mechanics, making it the series’ most recent addition.
Aside from the gameplay, one of the most intriguing parts of Pokèmon Legends: Arceus was its setting, the Hisui area, a feudal replica of the franchise’s famed Sinnoh region.
