    Did you know? Pokémon has announced short videos that will be released on the official Youtube channel featuring stories from the first to the sixth generation?

    ..well, you do now :P

    The series will be 18 episodes long, and every episode will be around 3-5 minutes long. Watch the trailer here:
    [youtube]https://youtu.be/wMzwcIG8vgk[/youtube]

    The first two episodes will premier on Friday, September 16. Apparently, the shorts will dive more deeply into the existing regions and give us an opportunity to get to know characters better.


    What do you think of this news? Are you excited or not? Why? What do you expect to watch? What are things you don't want to see in the shorts? Discuss, people!

    This looks incredible, and seems like it will be noticeably darker than the anime. From what I've seen here, this could replace the current show and get away with it haha.

    It reminds me a lot of the origins anime they did but in small clips, I would rather this then the anime currently going or for it to be full 30/15 minute episodes. I love the way the portray these spin off like shows. I do hope they continue since it peeks for young adults and children compared to the anime which is aimed at children only. Overall, I am excited for this new spin-off like series, it has a lot of potential.

    I don't even watch the Pokémon anime anymore, but I highly doubt it. :P As mentioned, each episode will only be 3-5 minutes long, and there will only be 18 episodes total, so there really won't be enough time for deep adventuring/story telling.



    As for my own opinion on this, it looks kinda cool. I don't think I'll watch it, but the idea itself sounds like a good one.

    I'm glad to see they're doing this but also start at the same time since is a short anime it would be nice if they would do something like this in full length instead of OVA or shorts. Still I do have hopes for this since I've been waiting for more stuff like this.

    You'd be right to be reminded of that! This is supposed to be a spiritual sucessor to Origins. And to my eye, the characters (Giovanni and Red are the main ones here) look almost exactly like their characters in Origins, though Blue (the only clear face we see as a return from Origins) has changed. This could suggest that the same team is working on it, but this time on the behalf of Nintendo.

    If this is supposed to showcase the major events of each generation, that'd mean events like the legendary events and such right? Because, it seems to me that (except for the 1st generation) the E4 and Champion battles aren't that great of a deal... But that is just me.

    I'm actually super hype for this, then length is kinda a bummer but it looks promising. Reminds me of Origins and that was pretty good.

    I'm really excited about this announcement! By the look of it, Pokémon Origins and Pokémon Generations seem to be on the same wavelength. So if I liked Origins, I suppose I'll like Generations too. I'm looking forward to knowing about the untold stories they mentioned in the trailer, so I think I'm going to buy one Hype Train ticket *_* *_*

    I haven't watched this yet or paid much attention, but I really liked Pokémon Origins when that came out so I'm going to give this a go.

    They are actually really well done. The level of animation is very high and I like the more adult feel to it. My favorite episode is probably the one with Team Magma, so far.

    I really love Pokémon Generations! I am actually quite glad they are 3-5 minutes, as it means there will be more time for me to watch the episodes as I am a very busy person. Every episode is well done, and I am glad they are giving characters like Silver (who has never been in an anime before), Buck and other characters we know little of a chance! The animation quality is really beautiful and so is the music!

    For the most part they've been pretty cool, though I felt like the Gen 3 and Cheryl episodes were pretty poor quality. The voice acting that had gone on and the level of unnerving animation in Cheryl's was just eugh.

    These episodes are truly amazing. Honestly I wish they would keep going with these, but of course they have to stop and some point in time. My favorite happens to be the old cheatu one. Chansey looks very cute in that episode! Honestly I wish they would do the same type of shorts for Pokémon Adventures. They probably won't do that, but I can dream...

    I recently watched most of these. I kind of like what they are trying to do but I really wish they were longer. I feel like if they had more depth I'd be more interested.

    I had been watching this quite frequently but kinda dropped off a bit. :( I'm gonna try and catch up though because I adore this series and would love to see it animated into a full length show!
