WATCH: All your favorite Pokémon are cuter than ever in new 'Pokémon Concierge' trailer

It's Pokémon like you've never seen it before!

Netflix has released the official trailer for its new stop-motion animated series, Pokémon Concierge, and all of your favorite creatures look even more adorable and cuddly than ever.

The two-minute trailer introduces viewers to a woman named Haru, a new staff member of a Pokémon resort on a southern island who will take on the role of a concierge. The scene then cuts to Haru stepping inside the doors of the hotel, where it is filled to the brim with Pokémon of all shapes and sizes.

Some of the more popular creatures included in the trailer are Charmander, Rattata, Dragonite, Eevee, Mudkip, Pidgeot, Snorlax, Seel, Diglett, Psyduck, Magikarp, and Bulbasaur—all made out of clay and cotton.

"Our job is to take care of these Pokémon and ensure they enjoy the resort," Haru's fellow co-worker tells her.

However, this is easier said than done as Haru soon finds out that Pokémon aren't pleased so easily, and she must now figure out what puts a smile on their faces before they give a bad review of their stay.

Pokémon Concierge marks the first-ever collaborative production between Netflix and The Pokémon Company and will take a turn from the formula of catching, training, and battling the different Pokémon species by instead opting for the slice-of-life genre.

Produced by dwarf studios, the show's English dub cast is comprised of Karen Fukuhara (The Boy and the Heron), Imani Hakim (Everybody Hates Chris), Josh Keaton (Voltron: Legendary Defender), and Lori Alan (SpongeBob SquarePants).

Meanwhile, the main Pokémon anime series has replaced Ash and Pikachu as the heroes in the next series. The new main characters include a young girl named Liko and a boy named Roy, who are accompanied by the three starters of the new generation: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.

Pokémon Concierge will premiere on Netflix on Dec. 28.
