CBBC HD To Broadcast Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai and Pokemon: Giratina the Sky Warrior on UK TV This Week

TV listings have revealed that CBBC HD, and in turn CBBC, will broadcast the feature-length Pokemon films, Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai and Pokemon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior, on UK TV this week. Both films, along with two seasons of Pokemon: Diamond & Pearl. are also available to Stream on BBC iPlayer.

The current schedule is as follows:

Thursday 26th August 2021:
9:10am – Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai

Sunday 29th August 2021:
10:20am – Pokemon: The Rise of Darkai

Monday 30th August 2021:
9:10am – Pokemon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior

While these films are available on DVD in the UK, and have previously been shown on UK TV via POP!, the broadcast of these films on CBBC HD does mean that ‘for the first time’ fans will be able to watch them in High Definition outside of a streaming platform. Outside of streaming platforms the only way to watch these films in High Definition is on Blu-Ray in North America and Australia.
