Pokémon and Netflix are working on a new series

It has been confirmed that a new animated series titled "Pokémon Concierge" is currently in the works as a collaboration between Pokemon and Netflix.

The details:

  • In February’s Pokémon Presents event, Vice President of Content, APAC, at Netflix, Minyoung Kim, and President and CEO of The Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara, announced that both companies would be working together to create a new animated series featuring "a brand new storyline."
  • The plot of the series surrounds Haru, a concierge at the resort who will help out the Pokémon guests during their stays in what looks to be a unique take on the slice-of-life genre. It will also feature stop-motion animation handled by Dwarf Studios, which is behind the 2019 Rilakkuma and Kaoru Netflix animation series.
  • There is no word on when the series will be released, but we did get a short teaser of the animation showing an adorable Psyduck taking a stroll on the beach. Depending on how long the show has been in production, it's safe to assume that it will be released either in late 2023 or sometime in 2024.

In other recent Nintendo news:

  • Nintendo held another Direct showcase last month that revealed multiple titles, including a sequel to Samba de Amigo, a new Professor Layton, and a Metroid Prime remaster that is now available. You can find our recap of the show here.
  • Microsoft has announced that it has signed a 10-year legal agreement with Nintendo to bring its console titles, including Call of Duty, to Nintendo platforms going forward. This is part of Microsoft’s ongoing move to push for the acquisition of publisher Activision-Blizzard, as it tries to convince EU regulators that the deal will not cause significant harm to PlayStation’s brand.
