Amazon Offers “Pokémon” Anime Streaming Channel

Now you can be the very best, like no one ever was… for three bucks a month.

Yesterday, The Pokémon Company announced that they are partnering with Amazon to launch a subscription-based channel devoted to the franchise’s anime content. The channel is available to Amazon Prime members for $2.99 per month.

Amazon’s Pokémon channel launched with seasons 2-5 and 10-16 of the TV series, as well as four movies:

  • Pokémon the Movie 2000
  • Lucario and the Mystery of Mew
  • Pokémon 3: The Movie
  • Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea

The subscription format is similar in nature to the now-defunct Anime Strike.
