Pokémon: The Origin [trailer] [ VIDEO ]

Pokémon: The Origin is scheduled to premier in Japan on October 2. The internet denizens are still speculating to whether or not this is simply going to be a special or an ongoing anime series. Personally, I think it’s just going to be a feature.

Why? Two reasons. One, the production quality in this trailer is similar to that of the Pokémon theatrical movies and much higher than the ongoing series. And my second reason, is that the new Pocket Monsters XY (Pokémon XY stateside) anime series is premiering in Japan on October 17. But we can still hope, right? Probably not.

On another note, I wonder how closely this anime will parallel Scott Ramsoomair’s SUPER EFFECTIVE? Hmm…
