Pokémon TV Hits Google Play, Gives Free Access to All of Your Favorite Episodes

Pokemon TV

I won’t spend too much time on this one because I’m afraid no one will care, but if you grew up with Pokémon like I did, this is a sweet chance to relive some of those classic episodes. Today, the official Pokémon TV app hit Google Play, giving free access to a ton of older and new episodes of this show. 

I’ll be spending the rest of this work day going through season 2, which is of course the most epic, given that Mewtwo decides to come slap Ash in the face and you have Gary who is the biggest a-hole in Pokémon history. Anyways, go get some if you feel up to it.

    My kids play the Pokemon games and watch the show. My younger son used to be really, really into it. I ended up loading Emerald into the GBA emulator on my old phone more as a joke…. aaaaand long story short I my be the oldest person to beat a Pokemon game (fear my Pelipper!)

  • Remote installed onto my girlfriend’s Nexus 10. I believe she will be pleased.

  • And another reason to continue loving and supporting Droid-Life!

    Afraid no one will care?! I’m so incredibly offended right now…

  • YES.

  • no season 1?

    • J. Gilbertson

      i was upset. I think I have a VHS somewhere in a storage box at my parent’s house of Nintendo Power’s “Introduction to Pokemon” that they gave all their subscribers to introduce pokemon before it hit the states.

    I still remember getting my first pack of cards in like grade 1 or something and I got a mewtwo but had no clue it was an unreal card to get so my assho*e friend traded me a freakin jiggly puff. Still gets me going! haha

  • Awesomeness I grew up during the height of the pokémon craziness. Still remember standing in line for an hour at gamekeeper to get a couple of trading card booster packs. Those were the days.

  • J. Gilbertson

    Won’t lie… I really want to bust out pokemon blue on my GB color and start a new game but my pokedex says 150 and I really don’t want to lose that Idk why lol.

    • Tony Allen

      Most games of that age don’t work anymore, the internal batteries have died and wiped the data. Mine all have.

      • J. Gilbertson

        Mine actually still works surprisingly. I was tempted to play it. I think I’ve also encountered missingno (sp?) quite a few times.


    Omg I used to think Misty and Nurse Joy was so hot!!!

  • Here it is sideloaded on Google TV. Pokemon TV side loaded – GTVFriends http://j.mp/Z8XhX9

  • Side loaded and working on the Google TV.

  • OH SNAP installed!

    • J. Gilbertson

      you mean “OH POKEMON SNAP!” haha!

  • will bartlett

    i am at work and not able to install this…anyone wanna tell me what early seasons they have and if they are full seasons?

    • Currently, the oldest season they have is season 2, episodes 2-12. Then it goes up from there. Not seeing any Season 1 at the moment. It’s sort of a weird layout and they show regions and whatnot. It’s weird lol Download it when you get home!

      • will bartlett

        i already have it sent to my tablet!

  • MSlab

    I feel old.

  • Kevin McDole

    What universe are you from? What do you mean nobody will care? I LOVE POKEMON!

  • john

    this rocks! My childhood again

  • Neomastermind

    Oh how I love Pokemon. Can’t wait until October.

    • JetBlue

      What’s in October?

  • tanknspank

    Only Tim would post something like this. But that’s why we love him 😀

    • Thomas

      +1 on the love Tim part 😉

  • Fattie McDoogles

    @tim-a-tato I heart you!!! lol I wish they would rerelease the games officially. I would love to play them on my phone.

    • gokusimpson

      gameboid works quite well

      • Fattie McDoogles

        yea but its not the same. I have it on gameboid and its cool. I would just love to see a dedicated game with all the games build into it.

        • tanknspank

          That and emulators seem to have a bigger impact on battery for the devices I’ve played on, for a subpar experience. I would think a native game would perform better it most cases.

          • gokusimpson

            True and true. It’s also not the same without the physical buttons to mash

          • JoshGroff

            That’s why I use my sixaxis. 🙂

          • Kevin McDole

            You’d be surprised. I emulate Pokemon Emerald on my HTC Rezound (not the best device anymore by far, can’t even render Angry Birds without stuttering) and I have to say, I get 60 fps. I even have my CPU profile set so that when I’m playing Gameboid, it underclocks between 384mHZ – 540mHZ. Try doing that with any other Android app…can you say LAG?

          • tanknspank

            I play emulators all the time on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. I know the performance is there. But underclocking isn’t going to save you much battery. Emulators do to much compared to native apps. My Galaxy Nexus with the extended battery is only good for about an hour while using my MOGA with it.

          • Aardvark99

            I think it was emerald I played using Gameboid on my old Droid X (way slower then a Rezound). It also ran great – I typically ran it at an accelerated speed and it still worked near flawlessly, The music was the only thing that seemed off at times, but when running at high-speed I had to shut the sound off anyway.

    • Nintendo would lose so much money, that’s why none of their games are officially on anything but Nintendo devices.

      • Fattie McDoogles

        How would they lose money? You can’t lose money on releasing content that is already prepared that you aren’t doing anything with. I am not talking about the DS/3D games I’m talking about all the gameboy games.
