Anime News

It was announced on Friday on the official Twitter account for the Pokemon: Twilight Wings net anime short series that the 5th episode will be delayed to June 5 due to production delay caused by COVID-19. The episode is scheduled initially to debut this this month.

Pokemon: Twilight Wings will have a total of seven five-minute episodes. Its first episode was uploaded on YouTube last January 15, with a new episode releasing every month afterward.

Here’s some information about the anime as described by The Pokemon Company International:

Galar is a 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 in the capsule series.

The anime will be an “ensemble drama” showing the struggles and conflicts of young people living in the Galar region.

The net anime is based on the popular Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield games. Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield were released worldwide on November 15. The two versions of the game feature Pokemon from the Galar region, and players can choose one of the three basic starter Pokemon namely Gookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. This is also the game where the Gigantamax forms are featured, in which Pikachu, Eevee, Meowth, Butterfree, Charizard, Alcremie, and Corviknight will be having their own, said forms in this game. Two legendary Pokemon will also be introduced.

Other features in the Pokemon Sword and Shield game include the Max Raid Battles, Dynamax, Gigantamax forms, the Battle Stadium, Poke Jobs, Pokemon Camp, and Surprise trades. This is the second Nintendo Switch game for the popular franchise. 

The game has also announced expansion sets as well as a cloud-based Pokemon storage service (Pokemon Home).

Even before the release of the two games, people have already shared their frustration and disappointment over some Pokemon that are missing from the game. Fans say that this is saddening as people expected so much from the game’s developer Game Freak thinking that it would be better than its first Nintendo Switch games of the franchise, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s GoEevee! which were based on the 1998 video game Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition.

The first Nintendo Switch games Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu, and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! was released in November 2018. The release of the games was a huge success as it had a record of more than 11.28 million combined sales as of September 2019. This huge number has made the games known as one of the best-selling games for the Nintendo Switch.

There’s more in store for both Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield players a trailer was uploaded last March featuring the “The Isle of Armor. This is first of the two expansions for both versions of the game.

Only those who purchased the expansion pass of the game will be able to get access to this expansion.

The trailer reveals the Gigantamax forms and moves for the evolved starter Pokemon, which are the following: Gigantamax Rillaboon’s G-Max Drum Solo, Gigantamax Cinderace’s G-Max Fireball, and Gigantamax Inteleon’s Hydrosnipe. This expansion will also feature the Pokemon Kubfu, Urshifu (its evolved form) and its two fighter moves Single Strike Style and Rapid Strike Style.

This expansion will be available for expansion pass holders by the end of June. The second expansion, named “The Crown Tundra” is expected to release in the Fall.

Those who get the expansion pass will have access to new story content, Pokemon (which includes version exclusives as well the as the Legendaries), gyms, and the Gigantamax forms of existing Pokemon. For those who do not have the expansion passes need not to worry as free updates will also be launch which will give non-expansion pass users and opportunity to capture new Pokemon.
