So, I've come to Crunchyroll. I wouldn't say Im HUGE on Anime, but it's a good pass time, plus i had a 30 day free trial of Premium. I was sad to come here and find one of my favourite Anime's, Pokemon, not on here. Im sure there's probably a good reason for that, but Im naive and can't think of it. Anyone else know, and care to explain?

Probably because Pokemon is free to watch on Pokemon.com. They also have their own Roku app.

The way shows work on Crunchyroll is that Crunchyroll has to gain the licensing from the show and its creators to stream it on their site. If Pokemon isn't on here, then it probably because Crunchyroll doesn't have the rights to the show.

Really sorry to close this since you're new, but basically the general forums aren't the place to request shows. While you've got your Premium, you can try over in /forumtopic-588949/what-seriesmoviedramamanga-would-you-like-to-see-on-cr - lots of show ideas, and please do add yours!

But, yeah, Pokemon is run by their own site, I think associated with 4Kids (but not totally sure there).. anyway, most likely CR wasn't able to make a deal to side-stream it with them. I know they try to get every license possible, so it's not out of the question that Pokemon will find its way here someday...
