THIS IS GOING TO BE A SPECIAL OF THE ORIGINAL RED AND GREEN GAMES RELEASED IN 1996. SADLY NOT A SERIES OR IS IT BASED ON THE MANGA.

Title: Pocket Monsters: The Origin (Pokémon: The Origin)
Airing: October 2
Studio Animation: Production I.G

Synopsis As he receives his first Pokémon from Professor Oak, Red's journey begins. Entrusted with a Pokédex, Red is to find all the Pokémon within the Kanto region, and battle many opponents. As he travels through the region, he battles his rival, Green, Gym Leaders such as Brock and when he gets to the Pokémon Tower, he confronts the evil team, Team Rocket.

This special is to commemorate the release of the new games, Pokémon X & Y and is based upon the Pokémon Red & Green games.

Character Designs


It is going to be a special and not an actual series :C

Something seems off from the actual game design

I want to say the eyes

Or maybe it's just because the pic in the OP has Red's hat turned back.

Maybe based off of the manga Pokemon Adventures? If it is, that'd be so cool.

EDIT: Hey guys I think I found the trailer:

That's pretty cool on how they are using the original red and blue characters. I hope that it isn't like Ash's pokemon adventure... I hope CR can stream it but I think that the Pokemon International company will release it in English soon enough.

I would prefer an adaptation of Pokemon Adeventures/Special, but this is nice too. Since it's a direct adaptation of the games, here's hoping for "Are you a boy or a girl?" and stuff like that.

I'm disappointed.

A wasted opportunity to make an Anime adaption of the Pokemon Adventures Manga. This is just a bunch of fanservice, really.

I'm gonna watch the fuck outta this. I've never stopped being a fan of Pokemon.

I think this anime is going to follow the game rather than the manga as well. In this thing we see Red look like his game self, and he starts with a Charmander; the manga version of Red is designed different (different clothes, spikier hair), and his rival gets the Charmander.

It really is about time they made an anime that properly follows the games. I've been bored of Ash's bullshit for over ten years and this'll be a breath of fresh air. XD

Brock's gonna be in it and Ash won't be? Count me in.

EDIT: oh it's just a special? Dang it. I don't mind the games being the same thing every time, but the shows themselves >_>

Aww. I was looking forward to it.

I mean I guess I still am, but not near as much.

I guess it doesn't make sense, when you think about it, for them to do a reboot of the anime when they still have the existing series going. I just really wanted a show without Ash.
