Pokémon: The Origin Anime Announced, Mystery Clip Also Sparks Wii U Game Rumours
Posted by Andy Green
One-off special will be based on the original games
A new one-off Pokémon anime is on the way to coincide with the release of Pokémon X & Y.
It's called Pokémon: The Origin and is based on the original Japanese games, Pokémon Red & Green, which later became Red & Blue internationally. The show will centre around new Pokémon trainer Red as he sets off on his adventure for the first time, while the storyline will be just as it was in the game, with Red fighting against his main rival, Green, and challenging the first gym leader, Brock, to earn the Boulder Badge.
The programme will air as a special broadcast on 2nd October, while Pokémon X & Y will launch around the world on 12th October. There will also be a soundtrack available to download in November.
Check out the trailer to Pokémon: The Origin below.
Also of interest, but based on wild speculation rather than anything resembling fact, is a very short clip at the end of the video below that shows Mega Lucario and Mega Blaziken facing off in what some are interpreting as visuals from a potential upcoming Wii U game. Is it a cheeky teaser of something to come? Check it out and decide for yourself.
