Back in December, The Pokémon Company revealed that a brand new online-exclusive anime would be kicking off this year. It's wasted absolutely no time in getting the first episode up, so make sure to check it out above.

The series, called Pokémon: Twilight Wings, will contain seven episodes in total and is set in Pokémon Sword and Shield's Galar region. Here's a synopsis:

John is a young boy who’s been hospital-bound from an early age. Ever since he saw his first Pokémon battle on TV, he’s been a big fan of Champion Leon—and he’s dreamed of watching one of Leon’s matches in a stadium. Could a visit from Chairman Rose pave the way for his dreams to come true?
