Pokémon Sword & Shield Mini-Series Announced For January 2020!


The Pokémon Company International have just revealed news of an all-new 7-part Sword & Shield anime series coming January 2020!

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.

Each episode will be approximately five minutes in length. Animation for the series will be provided by Studio Colorido, which is known for its warm and welcoming visual designs and dynamic photographic techniques, as seen in the anime film Penguin Highway.

The world of Pokémon is evolving as Trainers explore Galar, and this new era will be brought to life in the form of an anime series created by one of the leading animation studios in Japan. This is incredibly exciting news, fans haven’t been treated to a series like this since 2013’s hit mini-series, Pokémon Origins.

The first episode of the series is expected to premiere on January 15, 2020, on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
