Pokemon Concierge is here to make your Christmas week even better, with its adorable Pokemon and their owners located in a lush Pokemon resort. The show will feature real stop-motion animation.
Pokémon Concierge arrives on Netflix on December 28, 2023, to brighten up the post-Christmas blues with its adorable bunch of animated, furry Pokémon and a swoon worthy, soothing resort. The show will feature four episodes and mark the first collaboration between Netflix and The Pokémon Company.
Pokémon Concierge dropped its trailer on November 15, which offered a sweet glimpse of the dreamy world where human trainers and Pokémon live together. However, instead of focusing on the battles and practices, here we see them unwind, relax, and have fun like never before. It is like watching them let their hair down properly for the first time.
The show features all fan favorites, Bulbosaur, Pikachu, Psyduck, among many more, as well as a human protagonist, Haru. She comes to the lush island, where the Pokémon resort is located by a luxurious boat before being welcomed and mentored on her job. Haru is going to be the new concierge at the resort, her only job is making the Pokémon happy.
However, all does not go according to plan, no matter how hard one tries in life, and we see a series of hilarious mishaps and fun incidents occur to Haru as she tries to go about doing her job. However, her sweet and happy temperament, as well as helpful nature soon set her on the right track as she bonds with all the cuddly Pokémon trotting around.
The film’s trailer maintains its peppy pace with the film’s theme song Have a Good Time Here by Mariya Takeuchi, a legendary Japanese singer. Being a Dwarf Studios production, a renowned Japanese production house, the film’s attempt at real stop motion animation is bound to be a visual treat for all viewers, especially when director Iku Ogawa is helming the project.
The film’s Japanese voice cast comprises of Non, Eita Okuno, Farious Ai, and Yoshiko Takemura, while the English voice actors include Imani Hakim, Karen Fukuhara, Lori Allen, and Josh Keaton.
