The Pokémon Company is - as it often does with a new generation and games on the way - going into promotional overdrive. That's no bad thing, as it often means plenty of goodies and extras to dive into as the hype train picks up speed.
Now we have 'Pokémon Generations', a series of animated shorts that'll delve into history and lore through the 20 years we've had of Pokémon. Every week there'll be short episodes to watch on YouTube.
The new animated series Pokémon Generations revisits each generation of the Pokémon video game series to shed new light on some timeless moments. From the earliest days in the Kanto region to the splendor of the Kalos region, go behind the scenes and witness Pokémon history with new eyes! These bite-sized adventures, about 3 to 5 minutes long, will be released every week through December 23, 2016.
As an extra bonus, Pokémon Origins Episode One: Red has now been posted on YouTube. As the name suggests this is focused on the first generation, and all four episodes are now available on Pokémon TV.
Are you excited about Pokémon Generations, or planning to catch up on the Origins Red episodes? Let us know in the comments.
does this mean we finally get actual pokemon animes
Pokémon Origins left me wanting for more and now the time has finally come!
Possible chance to see a BW protagonist vs. N, Reshiram vs. Zekrom? Sold!
Mere Nostalgia pandering is it? Nothing to get excited over.
So Red will be in Sun & Moon and catch Zygard? (At least look at it?)
-Entei Raikou and Suicune (before that house burned down?)
-Red looking at Zygard
-Giovanni (Celebie event in HGSS?)
-Looker and a armed group storming a building
-Red in a minecart
-Dragonite (Lance?) VS Red Gyarados
-Green VS Kanto league
-Girl running from ghost
It looks neat, will watch. And import a eventual Japanese Blu-ray.
Probably going to have some surprising hype reveal at the end for Alola like Mega Charizard X in Origins. Also this is going to be and epic series lasting all the way to December 23 so LETS GO!!!
THANK ARCEUS IT FINALLY CAME!!! And Japan didn't get it ahead of time so no Spoilers!!!! Red is the Original Pokemon Master, and this confirms he went to other regions!!! Pokemon Origins evolved into Pokemon Generations!!!
"...splendor of the Kalos region,..."
"splendor of the Kalos region"
splendor of the Kalos region
splendor of the Kalos region
Uh... o-kay then.
I think this is to make up for the Kalos League in the anime and how they are sending Ash to school in Alola. I just wish it was longer than 5 min. But we get Looker!
This looks amazing! A little disapponted that those will be shorts rather than an actual anime serie, but count me in!
So, it will focus on some parts from the main series from different perspectives. Blue battling Lance, Lance battling Gyarados, perhaps Giovanni listening to Team Rocket's call and such stuff. Interesting.
@kamikazilucas If ~4 minute long episodes counts for you, then yes, we got an actual pokemon anime
Yes, yes, YES! Nostalgia pandering yes! BUT I DON'T CARE! N is comin'
Phew, okay. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to it.
@Nonno_Umby Well said. Also, are you aware your avatar is in a constant loop of death
P.S. Which anime is it from?
@KTT they will be parts of a full episode so like 4 mins of the episope every week
Wait, so Ethan and Lyra will get the Origins treatment? SO [insert obvious expletive here] SOLD.
@Ed_Fairway I know, but he doesn't die in that scene (for no reason). The anime is called Nichijou, and it is a non-sense/comedy/slice of life. It is one of my favorite, you have to watch it for understand how funny it is!
This looks great! You know, it's interesting how in the new Sun and Moon anime Ash was given a new look. Its pretty similar to Red's style, and now this has been revealed. Is it at all possible that Ash and Red could meet?
YES!!!!!!Finally all the trainers from the games are going to appear in an anime,instead of always getting Ash!!!!
@Nonno_Umby I thought the scene looked familiar. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but thanks.
I'd say any scene with Sakamoto is my favorite, case in point
Nostalgia pandering or not, I like it! Looks like I have some anime to watch.
Smart move, I'm hyped just reading about it.
@AlexSora89 If they don't give that role to Red. After all, he faces at least Zygard, and if you stop the video right before Regigias you can see Pikachu on the right side.
I do hope we will see other MC's thought.
And a animated Zinnia. And Emma.
@Basilgarrad Of course he went to other regions, Johto and Unova were confirmed before.
I think this is safe to say this is essentially the 3 years between origins (aka red/blue) and gold and silver after the gen 1 stories since for all we know red saw/caught all 800+ pokemon (counting the sun and moon ones) during that time and he traveled to all 6 current regions (and likely Alola). Also of note is sometimes Red's Pikachu is out of a Pokeball and isn't at others, so perhaps one of these episodes might show Red bonding with his Pikachu and explaining why it surpassed Charizard in power.
Essentialy, it's like Pokémon Origins treatment, but now to all generations? I'm not bothered with the fact that they're shorts, all I'm wanting is for these shorts to be awesome(which considering Origins, that should be the case)!
Shspw vs jdbdhd bj s I s hi h!
Awsome! Can't wait for this!
Sine these will be short episodes, I'd make sure not to get too hyped. I frequent the Transformers community, and the recent 'Combiner Wars' miniseries was overhyped and subsequently panned by fans. If you want to enjoy it more, go in with neutral expectations.
It is confirmed that AZ, Lysandre, Ghetsis, N and Cyrus are going to appear. It was hinted Maxie and Archie are to come too. There is already concept art online for Team Plasma in B/W 1 so it seems that we're getting a double treat for B/W 1 & 2 or potentially just Neo Plasma and Old Plasma from B/W 2.
Was that...Johnny Yong Bosch as "Blue"/Green? After ruining my concept of Brock already? I...NOT EVERYONE IS FIRION! Or Ichigo. Or even Vash. Pls.
Wish this was a full series (They can't make a spinoff anime longer than 90 minutes, apparently) But I'll definitely see this.
BTW, this is animated by OLM still, right? Because the animation is really smooth here.
Will it go the Ash route and have Red take over all the stories? 😒
Hoping to see Gold/Ethan, and Hilbert, mostly excited for Johto and Unova, once again the Pokemon company makes looker the awesome agent he is
@tobibra The girl with the chansey running from the haunter/ghost thing is probably cheryl from DPP.
Also the heatran vs claydol is probably buck's claydol from the same games.
@kamikazilucas Ya sure about this? To me it looked like each episode is a separate thing, tackling a different topic, with maybe N part having a longer time. The part "These bite-sized adventures" sounds like they confirm that.
I hope not! We already have an anime trainer from Kanto that's been hogging all regions so far!
@KTT well theres going to be a new episode every week and theres not just 6 weeks till december
