Pokemon Evolutions Anime Spotlights all Eight Regions; Ball Guy Is Here
The Pokemon Company announced that it would be releasing a limited series of Pokemon anime, called Pokemon Evolutions. The first trailer looks stunning.
Pokemon Evolutions is an eight-part series. Each episode will take place in a different part of the Pokemon universe. Although the trailer shows glimpses of each episode in action, it focuses primarily on Episode Galar, which appears to be focusing attention on Leon, the regional champion. However, the real star of the show is the Ball Guy (sorry Pikachu), who we briefly see in the montage. Who cheers him on? We will soon find out who is hiding behind the mask. Are Pokemon Evolutions going to be answering the greatest mysteries in the Pokemon world?
The trailer makes sense because the Galar entry will get some attention. However, it will also be the first to air via the Pokemon YouTube channel and the Pokemon TV app (which just launched Switch).
