Pokémon Concierge Stop-Motion Animation Arriving On Netflix Soon
Netflix joined the Presents livestream today to make the Concierge announcement. Unlike previous animated adventures set in the Pokémon universe, this new series from Netflix and The Pokémon Company takes a very different approach.
Featuring Haru, a concierge at the Resort, and Psyduck, the story is told through stop-motion animation by Dwarf Studios. The events that occur revolve around her dealings with the various Pokémon that stop by the resort.
According to Minyoung Kim, vice president of Netflix content in Asia, “Netflix is looking forward to delighting fans in Japan and around the world with Pokémon Concierge,” a brand new visual and storytelling experience featuring groundbreaking stop-motion animation set in the Pokémon world created in close collaboration with The Pokémon Company. And we’re psyched to announce this new series on Pokémon Day, giving fans even more to look forward to on the day set aside to honour the worldwide phenomenon that is Pokémon.
With the coming of spring 2020, Netflix became the sole U.S. broadcaster of the anime. While the previous seasons have continued the story of Ash Ketchum and Pikachu, Concierge introduces a brand new direction for the franchise.
