The Pokémon Company International has announced that there will be a new three episodes long web series released next month, which takes place in the Hisui region. They state that this new show, titled Pokémon: Hisuian Snow, will debut on May 18th, 2022. You’ll be able to watch it on either the Pokémon YouTube channel or Pokémon TV. Down below you’ll find more info about the show, from the official press release.


Press Release:

The Hisui region was originally explored in the Pokémon Legends: Arceus video game and represents the Sinnoh region of old—before the existence of Pokémon Trainers and Pokémon Leagues. “Pokémon:  Hisuian Snow” is a story that takes place during this ancient age when the relationship between people and Pokémon was very different. Aboard a boat bound for the Hisui region, the protagonist Alec reminisces about the first time his father took him there. Over the span of three episodes, “Pokémon:  Hisuian Snow” will go into detail about Alec’s stories from the past.

Character Details:
Viewers will meet Hisuian Pokémon and new characters in this limited web series. The Pokémon Company International has revealed initial details of key characters and Pokémon in anticipation of the premiere.

Alec
Alec is heading to the Hisui region in search of medicinal herbs. He is a mild-mannered young man who is studying to become a doctor. As a child, he once accompanied his father on a visit to the Hisui region. He had an adventurous and mischievous side to him when he was a child.

Alec’s Father
Alec’s father is a woodworker. He originally lived in a different region, but recently moved to the Hisui region to procure materials. He came to fear Pokémon after a certain incident.

Zorua (Hisuian Form)
