Pokémon: Twilight Wings
The Pokémon Company have announced a new web anime series, called Pokémon: Twilight Wings. It will have 7 episodes, approximately 5mn-long, with a new one uploaded every month. The first one will go live on January 15th on the official YouTube channel of The Pokémon Company. Animation was done by Studio Colorido, who previously worked on Penguin Highway.
Here’s the key visual and some details:
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, fans can expect to see a variety of Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region appearing throughout the capsule series.
Over the past couple of days, Niantic shared two Community Notes for Pokémon GO, detailing recent/upcoming changes:
- Battle League preview, combat system update, legacy attacks, and more!
- Pokémon can now be found in more places around the world
Some new clothing items have been added to the Style Shop: some Team Polo shirts! Here’s what they look like:
