Original Article: The Pokémon Company has revealed that we'll be getting a new 'capsule' series early next year, exclusively on the internet.

Pokémon: Twilight Wings takes place in the Galar region made famous by Pokémon: Sword & Shield, and will span seven five-minute episodes. The series will "show in detail the dreams of Galar's residents", as well as the "challenges they must overcome and the conflicts they must resolve". Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region are expected to feature heavily.

Animation duties are being provided by Studio Colorido, the celebrated team behind the anime film Penguin Highway (trailer shown below). The first episode is expected to air on January 15th, 2020 and can be seen on the Pokémon YouTube channel.

The series will be directed by Shingo Yamashita, with the script coming from Sou Kinoshita. Character design will be undertaken by Shin Ogasawara.
