Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight! Meowth that's right! If your Pokéheart's already poképattering with pokéglee, you definitely need The Pokémon Company International's Pokémon TV app, for all the Ash, Pikachu, Piplup, and Weezing goodness you can stand right in the palm of your hand (I name these particular characters since I see them in the previews. Give me time!).
Browse fifty full episodes by region; the app includes ten each from Unova, Sinnoh, Hoenn, Johto, and Kanto. Do make sure you've got either a wifi connection or an unlimited data plan - the shows stream rather than download directly to your device. Playback is smooth and quality is high. The soundtrack is in English - which I normally object to with anime - but in this case it jams on the nostalgia button just right, since I hold such fond Saturday morning memories cavorting with Jigglypuff in my native language.
The app will remember where you've left off in each episode, and of course you can fast forward, rewind, and pause at will.
I'd love an option to download whole episodes for later viewing without wifi connection; no idea how this would jive with copyright issues, but it would certainly be handy on car rides and/or island excursions. That there are just fifty fixed episodes is both great and a bummer; the prospect of seeing all of them is lovely, but as their number dwindle, so too does the appeal of the app.
And yet, and yet. You just gotta watch 'em all. The Pokémon Company International's Pokémon TV is a great lil' companion app for pocket monster fiends everywhere.
