The Pokémon Company is all set to release a series of animated shorts that will bring the story from the games to life in Pokémon Generations.
The year 2016 is clearly all about Pokémon. Not only did fans get the highly-addictive Pokémon GO, they also keep on receiving updates regarding the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon. The Pokémon franchise will be expanding a bit further through the debut of Pokémon Generations.
Pokémon Generations will be released on the company’s official YouTube channel. The first two shorts will debut on the 16th of September 2016. There will be a total of 18 episodes, each being between 3 to 5 minutes in length. Combine them and you’ll get approximately an hour and a half of new anime content.
The episodes will explore stories set in Kanto, the region where the first adventure began, and will move on all the way to Kalos. Fans will surely notice some familiar faces in the released trailer and concept art.
Pokémon Generations will make use of characters and events from the game series. So, if you aren’t a fan of the main Pokémon anime series you can check out Generations for canon game-inspired Pokémon content.
The new series does come across as a treat for fans of the older generation of Pokémon games. I wonder if the Pokémon Company has plans to continue with the series if it becomes a huge hit. Fingers crossed we get something similar to Pokémon Chronicles as it did a good job of fleshing out a couple of characters and expanding the Pokémon lore.
The main Pokémon anime series is set to continue with the debut of Pokémon Sun and Moon inspired anime in November 2016. Apparently, Ash Ketchum is going to school.
