Any fan of Pokémon knows that Feb. 27 marks Pokémon Day! The annual anniversary is meant to celebrate the first time the world was introduced to the fictional creatures, many of which have become iconic and easily recognizable today. The very first game was released in 1996 in Japan.

Well, to commemorate the big day, The Pokémon Company and Netflix shared an exciting announcement in February 2023. The two have teamed up to produce a stop-motion animated series, Pokémon Concierge. And now, we have an exciting release date update!

The fun and cute show is produced by Dwarf Animation Studios. The production company is behind other projects including My Dad the Bounty Hunter and Monsters at Work. Here’s all we know ahead of the animation’s release!

Pokémon Concierge is coming to Netflix in December 2023!

After months of waiting, we finally have a release date! Pokémon Concierge premieres Thursday, Dec. 28, 2023 on Netflix. There’s a total of four episodes that range between 14-20 minutes each. The TV-PG production definitely looks like fun based off the trailer (which we shared below!).

Everyone needs a break sometimes, including Pokémon. There’s definitely nothing wrong with that! And that’s what we’re going to see in the new animation series. Pokémon Concierge centers around an all-new character to the universe, Haru, per the synopsis. She is a concierge at the “peaceful” Pokémon Resort, where the creatures go to relax.

We’ll see her interactions with a variety of characters and their owners who visit the resort as guests. And I’m sure she’s more than up to the task! And as she works to make her guests happy, Haru might end up “discovering a new side to herself” along the way.

Pokémon Concierge teaser and trailer

In February, the streaming service did shared a teaser to give us a glimpse as to what the stop-motion animation will look like! We see Haru and perhaps one of the resort’s guests, a Psyduck, enjoying the sandy beach. Check out the teaser below:

In November 2023, Netflix finally shared the trailer and it’s just too adorable! The video features Haru’s first day on the job, some familiar faces, and some challenges she’ll face. Though that doesn’t compare to the help she provides! Check out the trailer below:

Pokémon Concierge cast: Who voices the characters?

As many of you know, Pokémon is a Japanese franchise. And so it’s no surprise that Pokémon Concierge will be available to watch both in English and Japanese. That means there’s two sets of cast – those who voice the characters in English, and those who voice them in Japanese.

The one bringing the character of Haru to life in English is Karen Fukuhara. The actress is best known for her roles as Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana in Suicide Squad and Kimiko Miyashiro/The Female in The Boys series on Prime Video. In Japanese, Rena Nōnen, also known as Non, will be voicing Haru. The actress is known for Japanese dramas High School Restaurant, Brilliant Thieves Royale, and Amachan. We shared the full cast list below:

English voice actors:

  • Karen Fukuhara as Haru
  • Imani Hakim as Alisa
  • Josh Keaton as Tyler
  • Lori Alan as Watanabe

Japanese voice actors:

  • Non as Haru
  • Fairouz Ai as Alisa
  • Eita Okuno as Tyler
  • Yoshiko Takemura as Watanabe

Singer Mariya Takeuchi lends her voice for the show’s main theme song, “Have a Good Time Here.” Some of the characters from the Pokémon universe you can expect to see are fan-favorite Pikachu, Eevee, Dragonite, and Magikarp.
