A whole new take on Pokémon
When it comes to Pokémon TV and movies, the majority of that focus has been on animated content. There have been a ton of anime episodes, animated shorts and movies, and cartoon specials, but not all that much in the way of live-action. That’s set to change in Japan in just a couple of months.
Pokémon Co. previously announced that they’re working on a live-action Pokémon drama that will debut on Oct. 19th, 2023. This series will air on TV Tokyo, and there have been no details on a localized release at this time. Today brings us a new poster for series, which you can see above.
This live-action Pokémon series will star Nanase Nishino as Madoka Akagi, a young woman who moves to Tokyo to work at an advertising company. Akagi ends up getting a copy of Pokémon Red from her mother, and we’ll get to see what her adventures are like as she explores the world of Pokémon.
