The official Pokémon website has confirmed that the upcoming mini-series Pokémon Origins will be available to watch exclusively on Pokémon TV from 15th November.

The upcoming four-part adventure is based closely on the very first Pokémon games, Pokémon Red & Blue, meaning that Ash Ketchum is nowhere to be found. The story follows Red as he embarks on his quest to become a Pokémon master. Along the way he'll encounter Team Rocket, battle his rival Blue and even have a stab at the Pokémon League.

Although only the first episode of Pokémon Origins will be available on 15th November, the Pokémon website does state that the remaining three episodes will be added over the following days. The release date above applies to both the US and UK.
