Some Pokémon animation — two seasons of the television series and a couple of the movies — will be available to stream from Netflix starting this Saturday, March 1, Netflix and The Pokémon Co. International announced today.
The library of Pokémon content coming to Netflix includes the anime series' first season, Indigo League, which originally aired from 1997-1999 in Japan and the U.S. Indigo League will be available to Netflix subscribers in Canada, Ireland, the U.K. and the U.S. Netflix is also getting the 14th season, Black & White (image above), which debuted in Japan just after the September 2010 release of Pokémon Black/Pokémon White on Nintendo DS.
Season 14 will be available in all Netflix territories, along with two full-length Pokémon feature films: Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram and Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom, both of which were initially released in July 2011.
Netflix's Pokémon offering won't be nearly as comprehensive as the Pokémon library on Hulu in the U.S., which features multiple seasons of the anime series and many of the films.
