Netflix Drops Teaser For Stop-Motion Series ‘Pokémon Concierge’

The Pokémon Company and Netflix are working together to develop a new stop-motion called ‘Pokémon Concierge’ which will follow a worker at a resort developed for Pokémon.

“In celebration of Pokémon Day, Netflix today announced Pokémon Concierge, its first collaborative production with The Pokémon Company and an ambitious stop-motion project produced by critically acclaimed dwarf studios,” Netflix said in a statement. “Expanding the Pokémon world, the story follows Haru, a concierge at the ‘Pokémon Resort,’ and her interactions with Pokémon and their owners who visit as guests.”

The released teaser trailer features a beach where the telepathic Psyduck walks onto the scene, leaving footprints in the sand. The concierge approaches and they look into the sky.

Vice President of Netflix Content in Asia Minyoung Kim expressed her excitement for the project.

“Netflix is looking forward to delighting fans in Japan and around the world with ‘Pokémon Concierge,’ an entirely new visual and storytelling experience featuring ground-breaking stop-motion animation set in the Pokémon world in close collaboration with The Pokémon Company,” she said. “We’re also excited to reveal this new series on Pokémon Day and provide fans with even more things to look forward to on this special holiday celebrating the popular franchise.”

Pokémon seems to spread out as a franchise with various shows being shown on different platforms.

As the What’s On Netflix website notes, “Pokémon remains one of the most fragmented IPs in the United States. While Netflix is the exclusive home to newer seasons, much of the older shows and movies are either spread out or unavailable via a streaming service.”

“For example, Pokémon the Series: XY is only on Hulu whereas some of the movies are only available on Prime Video,” they added.

Netflix has previously streamed ‘Pokémon Journeys’ and ‘Pokémon Master Journeys’ as original series.
