Pokemon TV now available for Android

Here's a little boost of nostalgia for you all. You can now watch episodes of Pokemon, arguably one of the most popular cartoon shows of the late 90's, straight from your Android device. The Pokemon TV app lets you stream free episodes from the series straight to your device. It doesn't have the complete series, but there are enough episodes to help you kill time and also find your inner child.

The Pokemon TV app updates its selection of episodes weekly, but we're not sure whether the older episodes will be phased out, or remain in the app. The app also features movies, trailers, and specials from the beloved series that you can watch to your heart's content.

What I would love to see is an official Pokemon game released for Android devices. Pokemon should definitely follow the examples of Square Enix and re-release their old games to the Android devices. That would be a trip down memory lane for everyone. Pokemon did state that it intended on releasing a Pokemon game for both iOS and Android, however we have yet to see proof of that.

The Pokemon TV app is available on both Android smartphones and tablets, and it features a user-friendly interface for navigating through the many seasons of Pokemon. The promotional video above shows the app in action, and gives you a preview of what you can expect from it. The app is available now from the Google Play store.

    This is a pretty cool
    app for the kids, but I’m getting sick of downloading so many individual apps
    lately. I want to watch TV on-the-go, but it got tedious flipping from
    one app to the next, only getting limited amounts of TV from each channel.
    I got the new DISH Hopper however, and with the DISH Anywhere app I can take my
    live TV and DVR with me virtually anywhere I go. It needs internet
    access, but there’s internet access all over the place and I haven’t had an
    issue with connectivity yet. I work a lot of hours at the DISH call
    center, and like that now I can turn on the game as I ride home on the
    train. It’s nice being able to take my TV with me and watch as if I were
    right there at home, and the kids like riding in the car a bit more if one of
    their movies is playing on the iPad. It has made TV a lot of fun again,
    and everyone in our family benefits!
