Remember the news of Amazon getting rid of the anime streaming service Anime Strike? Well, Amazon is back again but this time, they are targeting Pokemon.

According to IGN, Amazon announced that Amazon Prime members will be able to stream and watch their favorite episode/seasons of the anime Pokemon. The new service is called Pokemon Channel and the service will also include TV seasons, specials like Pokemon: Origins and movies. According to Amazon, the movies will be rotated “regularly” which means that the movies they stream will be changed periodically. Here is what is being streamed currently:

Movies

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

TV

  • Seasons 2-5
  • Seasons 10-16

However, there is a catch to this service. In order to use Pokemon Channel, you have to be a Prime member AND you have to pay $3 (USD) a month. If you are curious about this, they are offering a seven day trial to Pokemon Channel.

Are you going to try Pokemon Channel?

  1. I guess it’s not a real large price to pay, but I don’t have access to Amazon Prime here. That said I could not find time for it anyway as like for instance Naruto it has way too many episodes at this moment 😊😊

  2. I just don’t see why they want a double paywall around things.Then again, I have no real interest in watching Pokemon, it is more that if this becomes the norm and they start grouping things up and hiding them behind more paywalls it is just not going to be worth it.

  3. They business model seems the same as cable companies do here… You pay a price for a number of channels and then you have a price (way higher then 3 dollars) for some specific ones… I don’t really agree with it to be honest xP and paying 3 dollars (a month right) for an Anime is just not worth it
