From Galar to Kanto, the upcoming animated series titled “Pokemon Evolutions” promises ‘Timeless stories’ which will take the viewers to 8 different game regions with each passing episode. The 8-episode web-exclusive series, “Pokemon Evolutions” will premiere on The Pokémon Company’s official YouTube channel from September 9th.

The first episode titled “The Champion” will be dropping on 9th features everyone’s favorite champion Leon exploring Sword and Shield’s Galar region.

“Pokemon Evolution is both an exciting new collection of animation for the brand and a thank-you to the millions of fans around the world who have joined us on this journey over the past 25 years. Each region has been a touchstone for new generations of Pokemon Trainers as the brand has grown and we wanted Pokemon Evolutions to pay homage to the legacy while also being innovative and contemporary.
It’s a new adventure and familiar all at once. And, with the last episode set in Kanto, Pokemon Evolutions is a meaningful way to end our anniversary celebration in the place where it all began for Pokemon 25 years ago.”
