Pokémon anime

The Pokémon Company have shared some more details and pictures for the new Pokémon anime series, which debuts on November 15th in Japan. First, we have two new characters:

  • Professor Sakuragi (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura)
  • Koharu, Professor Sakuragi’s daughter

We learn that Satoshi / Ash and Go’s adventure begins in the port of Vermillon City. This is also where Professor Sakuragi’s laboratory is located, the place where the two protagonist live. It’s described as a “hub”, from where they head to the different regions of the Pokémon world. Located at the back of the laboratory is the Sakuragi Park, where various Pokémon live.
