A comprehensive watch order of the Pokemon series, which includes every entry of the Pokemon franchise.
Original Guide: https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1875815

AEGC Interest Stack index: https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=2017008

Part 1 - Original Series to DP series

Part 2 - BW to XY - https://myanimelist.net/stacks/19044

Part 3 - SM and on

Release Order

The following order of the interest stack.

Chronological Order

Since the Pokemon anime is so large and big franchise, do refer the original guide link above to see this.

BUT

Since every entry in the interest stack is numbered by the release date where to watch (mostly movies, spin-off's, specials and such), I will tag the "where to watch" like this:

Chronological - Where it is canon to the main Pokemon series

Release - Where it isn't canon to the main Pokemon series and not must watch in the specific episode number

I did it so it will be easier to just realize the most canon order by the interest stack.

Enjoy!
