Netflix just dropped a trailer for its new kids’ series “Pokémon Concierge,” and we have a feeling some adults will be tuning in to watch the super-chill animated show
What happens when Pokémon stop fighting and start relaxing? Well, that’s the question the characters are trying to answer in a new Netflix series, Pokémon Concierge. The first trailer just dropped, and to say this show looks absolutely adorable would be the understatement of the year.
In the trailer, we get our first glimpse into what Pokémon Concierge will be about: a girl named Haru who takes a job at the Pokémon Resort, where her job is to figure out how to make the vacationing critters feel calm and catered to. It’s all done in a fun, stop-motion animation style with soothing music in the background. Just watch, and we guarantee you’ll be as excited as we are to watch this show with your Pokémon-obsessed kids.
This is a pretty far cry from the usual Pokémon fare. But we’re OK with that—this gentle option will be perfect for fans who want to know a little bit more about creatures themselves beyond catching and training them for battle.
The series is directed by Ogawa Iku with a screenplay by Doki Harumi, and each tranquil episode will feature just 14 to 20 minutes of tropical scenes and maybe a life lesson or two. This is the first time The Pokémon Company has worked with Netflix, but it looks like this series is going to be a smashing success, so here’s hoping it won’t be the last.
Pokémon Concierge makes its Netflix debut on Dec. 28, which means it’ll be the perfect cozy way to spend Christmas break after the holiday frenzy is over.
