Today The Pokémon Company announced the production of a new Pokémon anime series. You’re probably wondering what’s so special with this one, since they made a metric ton of them.

But it is indeed special. The title Pokémon: The Origin says it all: it’ll go back to the series roots and re-enact the original game(s) Pokémon Red and Green (Red and Blue in the west).

The story will be about Red and his rival Green and their adventures triggered by receiving a Pokémon from Professor Okido (Oak in the west), and their battles against the evil Team Rocket. Gym leader Takeshi (that was renamed Brock in the west in the first anime series) will also appear and play a relevant role in the new anime.

The series will be aired on TV Tokyo starting on October the 2nd, ten days before the Japanese release of Pokémon X and Y.

Below you can see the first trailer, a set of screenshots, the logo and artwork of the main protagonists.
