The question is asked by many but its answer is simple. If you want to watch Pokémon legally then you would have to use platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar, or you can stream it on online sites. But you would also need to pay there.

The only way you can watch Pokémon for free is through Telegram channels. You can definitely find some channels on Telegram that have Pokémon movies and series available to download. But that might not work all the time. It is recommended you buy the subscription from a dedicated platform for the best streaming services.
