A brand new and exciting Pokémon series is on its way to Netflix in 2023. Titled Pokémon Concierge, for the first time ever we get to see a Pokémon story told through stop-motion animation.

Over the past few years, Netflix and Pokémon have developed an extremely fruitful relationship. With various new movies and multiple seasons of Pokémon Journeys, there are hours of Pokémon to be enjoyed on the Netflix library.

Soon, fans will get to enjoy an exciting new stop-motion animated series, Pokémon Concierge, which has been developed by Netflix, The Pokémon Company, and the Japanese animation team dwarf studios.

That studio has previously worked on domo-kun, Komaneko, and Netflix’s Rilakkuma and Kaoru.

Minyoung Kim who works at Netflix as Vice President of Content, APAC Ex-India, announced the new Pokemon series during the “Pokémon Presents” presentation on February 27th, 2023.
