The first episode of Pokémon: Twilight Wings, the new Pokémon web series, is now streaming on YouTube.
The first episode, which runs about six minutes, goes a little bit like this:
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?
New episodes will be released monthly. Here’s the official description of the series as a whole:
Pokémon: Twilight Wings, which is separate from Pokémon the Series, is set in the Galar region, where Pokémon battles have developed into a cultural sensation. Over the span of seven episodes, Pokémon: Twilight Wings will show in detail the dreams of Galar’s residents, the realities they face, the challenges they must overcome, and the conflicts they must resolve. In addition to these new stories, you can expect to see a variety of Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region appearing throughout the capsule series.
