New Old Pokémon Anime Series Will Celebrate the Original Game, Trailer and Screens Revealed

Today The Pokémon Company announced the production of a new Pokémon anime series. You’re probably wondering what’s so special with this one, since they made a metric ton of them.

But it is indeed special. The title Pokémon: The Origin says it all: it’ll go back to the series roots and re-enact the original game(s) Pokémon Red and Green (Red and Blue in the west). (Culture, Pokemon Green, Pokemon Red)

Hmm, it has Red then? That's interesting... I might just give this a look for nostalgia sake.

Yep, no more Ash whatshisname lol.
Snookies12  +   787d ago
Good... This is for the best... Let's be honest, Ash was a pushover lol.

EDIT: Haha, I love how he says "THE ORIGIN" at the end.

If only Ash was never made and they started the series out with Red instead.

The characters in this trailer look strange and soulless though. I thought Ash was ok just like most of the Animes characters but I stopped watching it after gold/silver.

I wonder if he'll talk...

Holy crap I am so excited for this! I seriously love Red/Blue version, not to mention that the animation style and quality is amazing...
OlgerO  +   787d ago
I easily played those games for 100 plus hours. I think it was the first handheld game I played

As an animation major I have to disagree with the animation quality and style being amazing, this is not very well animated compared to modern animation standards. Which is odd considering how simplistic it looks.
ZodTheRipper  +   787d ago
I thought the same but people still have their rosy glasses on when it comes to Pokemon lol
Yes the first 2/3 generations were incredible but since then this franchise became a joke quality wise with very few exceptions.
ajames347  +   786d ago
Ok well I can definitely respect your opinion on the animation quality (especially as an animation major, how cool is that? :D ). I actually really like the way it's animated though. To me it's like a smoother version of the first season's animation.

@zod18 Not sure how my opinion on a Gameboy game would influence how I feel about animation quality but you can assume whatever you want about me ;) And for your information I still play and enjoy all the games to this day.

I would say though, that the "way" it looks is definitely appealing though, and has a clean and soft look to it for the colors used.

Not sure if I'm describing it properly, you would know more than I, but I find the Art Style appealing even if it is simple.

It has nothing on, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex ( which I just started and LOVE!), but it's more appealing than a lot of anime's I've seen.

Haven't watched a ton though as 90% of the first episodes I've watched have turned me off from the rest of said anime. Most are too cheesy.

Saw that gif a while back and loved it. Anyone know what that's from by the way? It looks amazing.
vork77  +   787d ago

Imalwaysright  +   787d ago
What the hell?
RockmanII7  +   786d ago
The anime is 'Plastic Nee-san'
LoneWolf019  +   787d ago
Im fanboying hard! This looks to legit and finally leaving the childish cartoon and possibly entering a slight more mature anime!
DarkBlood  +   787d ago
o.o mother of god
AznGaara  +   787d ago
If this takes anything from the manga then Red is awesome! Can't wait.
Blank  +   787d ago
Im pretty interested in this! But what im really curious is how will the lavender town episodes will be like.
Khordchange  +   787d ago
Wow that was an epic unexpected moment
TongkatAli  +   787d ago
I have to admit, this looks really good. Ash is a piece of shit, good riddance, will never forgive him for releasing Pidgeot and his voice actor, my gawd!

Whilst I wanted a Pokemon Special anime, this will do, this will do, Nintendo. I am very excited for Pokemon this year! :D
Sarobi  +   787d ago
Oh damn. I'll have to check this out
tigertron  +   787d ago
My body is ready for the new Kanto series!

My childhood has returned. :D
tigertron  +   787d ago
Apparently it's a one off special, but I don't see how it can be with everything that happens...unless it's a quick montage of Red's journey, but that would blow. We need a fully fledged series.
CaptainPunch  +   787d ago
This should replace the current Pokemon series, which stopped being good years ago...
slinky123456  +   787d ago
Will his name be Red??? Lol
ironfist92  +   787d ago
Now THIS looks like its worth the watch. Maybe we'll have a crossover episode where Red wipes the floor with Ash.
TenkoTAiLS  +   787d ago
I don't think the author of this article read or had the news translated properly. This is not a new series, it is a Pokemon Special, meaning either one or two episodes, like the Pokemon Ranger specials they have done in the past.

The new SERIES is based on Pokemon X and Y and still has Ash as the main character. Sorry to burst peoples bubbles but this is a one off thing, not a new series.
Snookies12  +   787d ago
Total letdown if they don't turn this into a full series... :\
azshorty2003  +   787d ago
Aaawwww, really? I was so excited. Well I guess we'll see.

They need this to be a new series!! This will bring fans young and old. Ive played and own every generation of pokemon games and have all the movies to date but I don't watch the series anymore. I can't stand what they've done to ash. He should have been a lot stronger by now and aged quite a bit considering I'm not 11 anymore. We need a new pokemon hero.
i think people are forgetting the number one reason why the pokemon anime started to suck. it's been like 16-17 years and i still don't think they let ash when the pokemon league, or beat the elite four. as long as red is able to do this no matter how unrealistic it is i'll watch. can't wait to see misty, brock, and sabrina in this.
GentlemenRUs  +   786d ago
Hopefully it will be the last ever program!
lizard81288  +   786d ago
All of my Yes!
Williamson  +   786d ago
Can't believe it took this long for this to happen! But I hope its a new series and not a TV special consisting of only a couple of episodes.
