Just released today, The Pokemon Company has released an app to stream Pokemon TV episodes through your iPhone and IPad.

Thought this one might be of interest to NintendoLifers with iThings. :-)

Anything for Android? I suspect not.

Meh, I'm not a big fan of Pokemon anyways, but this sounds like it could be very profitable depending on the price.

It's free. Dunno if tere is a subscription cost to watch the episodes, but the press release doesn't mention anything of the sort.

And I think it has been released on Android. :-)

That's pretty neat. I don't have a tablet or anything but this is still good to hear. My brother has a Google Nexus 7 so I'll let him know and ask him to see what it's all about. Nintendo could really benefit by doing more things like this. I'm not talking about releasing games on iOS or anything, just providing ways for owners of those devices to see what they are missing out on. It couldn't hurt.

Yup, they're full episodes. Seem to be selected episodes from seasons though.

They haven't talked about the new pokemon game announced for Wii U either. Wait they did.

Still there's no point in rushing them, it will come up eventually.

(why is this in "other gaming" anyway? It's not gaming related at all, it would receive more attention in the general forum)

Apps might as well count as gaming.

To my surprise, it was released on Android. However, I'm really questioning why this was made. Unless there's a ton of money to be made off of ads or there's some deceptive charges in there I see this as a waste of resources (for profitability, and this is a subsidary of Nintendo is it not?). This is especially weird considering they charged $2 for a basic Pokedex, $26 for the whole damn thing.

Marketing. People can now get their Pokefix everywhere.

Far better than running a TV ad to promote the next Pokegame.

I saw this on ONM and downloaded it about 20 minutes ago. I've got school now, so I can't watch it until later, though.

Probably because people started complaining about them talking about iOS stuff last time.

Doesn't talk about games.

No, NintendoLife is too busy interviewing random fans and posting Youtube videos claiming them as "news".

Just for you.

NintendoLife tries to get any news that they can get their hands on. After all, its a non-funded site, from what I heard, and they do this on their free time.
I do see what you mean, and news has been a bit shallow for my taste, but it is what it is.

In the description, it mentions that not only can you watch episodes, you can also view trailers and commercials for upcoming poke-products. MARKETING!!

If I had a working iPod, I'd probably get this...

Which is odd, because I haven't played/watched Pokémon in years, lol.

The main reporting crew is in Britain. Of course there is going to be a time delay in the announcements.

Sigh. The purpose of this thread wasn't to criticise. It was to inform folks that the app existed in a light hearted manner.

But, since you brought it up. The press release for this app announcement (from one of the major PR companies in the industry) hit my inbox at 1:30am.

Which in England is about 3:30pm.

So, yeah. I was surprised that NLife hadn't reported on it, since it had reported on Nintendo game apps (official and illegal) on the app store in the past.
