New Pokemon Anime Announced With Teaser Trailer, More Info Coming Later This Month

Pokemon will be getting a new anime project titled Pocket Monsters, which will span across all known regions including Galar Region.

September 1, 2019

Following last week’s announcement and this week’s leaks, Pokemon will be getting a brand new anime series simply called Pocket Monsters. This was the title for the original series that debuted back in 1997. The new Pokemon anime is set in all regions so far, Galar included, with Pokemon from each region.

The full unveiling of the series will be revealed on September 29th. This reveal came with a teaser trailer which features artwork of each region’s starters, starting from Kanto’s Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle up to Galar Region with Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.


It’s unclear at this time whether this new series will herald a full reboot of the animated franchise or if this is another side project, similar to Pokemon Origins or Pokemon Generations.

In gaming news, there are two recent trailers for Pokemon Sword and Shield. The first showed off Team Yell, new Pokemon forms and evolutions, a new Pokemon, and new rivals. The second showcased more gameplay, new abilities, moves, and held items. There’s also a new video, narrated by Shigeru Ohmori, as he tours players around an unnamed town in in the game. While it seems to be a location from early on in the game, it is still quite robust and differentiates itself from previous towns with its location on the side of a hill.

Pokemon Sword and Shield will be released for Nintendo Switch on November 15th. Meanwhile check out a write-up from one of our DualShockers own, in which he claims this will be the series title to reignite his passion for the series. You can preorder Sword here and Shield here.
