With the first live-action Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu, starting filming today in conjunction with Ken Watanabe’s casting announcement, the ability to catch ‘em all is getting harder and harder. Aside from the sheer number of the creatures, the TV shows and movies have grown at a rate just as furious.

But now, thanks to Amazon, there’s a targeted way to sift through all that good, good battling and capturing content.

According to the Pokemon website, Amazon is launching a subscription-based channel available to Prime members that exclusively houses Pokemon’s animated content for an additional $2.99 a month, above the regular Prime membership fee. This Pokemon Channel will stream Seasons 2–5 and 10–16 of the animated Pokemon TV series, along with four of the feature films (Pokemon: The Movie 2000, Pokemon 3: The Movie, Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea).

While Detective Pikachu won’t hit theaters until May 10, 2019, you’ll be able to bide your time with all the content on Amazon’s Pokemon Channel starting today.
