Pokémon Concierge marks the first time the pair have collaborated and will follow Haru, a concierge at the Pokémon Resort and her interactions with the Pokémon and their owners who visit as guests.
The stop-motion project is being developed by Dwarf Studios and was unveiled earlier today at Pokémon Day, coming 27 years after the first Pokémon game was released.
“Netflix is looking forward to delighting fans in Japan and around the world with Pokémon Concierge, an entirely new visual and storytelling experience featuring ground-breaking stop-motion animation set in the Pokémon world in close collaboration with The Pokémon Company,” said Minyoung Kim, Vice President of Netflix Content in Asia.
