The first Pokémon Evolutions episode ‘The Champion’ is out now
The first episode of the new Pokémon Evolutions animated series has gone live. The first episode, The Champion, features Leon from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. At over seven minutes long, it’s one of the longest web-series episodes Pokémon has ever done.
Leon and the Galar region are in this episode, but the next will feature the Alola region, then Kalos and all the way back to Kanto in late December.
Produced to help celebrate 25 Years of Pokémon, this eight-episode series will begin in the Galar region and culminate in the Kanto region—the first region that appeared in the Pokémon series. Each episode features familiar characters and Pokémon alongside a connecting thread of a Pikachu that leads the viewers on their voyage through the regions.
