Pokémon Origins Tells Story of First Pokémon Games, Red and Blue

In celebration of the worldwide October 12 launch of the newest Pokémon video games, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS, an animated adventure that takes a look at a classic era of Pokémon—Pokémon Origins—begins November 15 only on Pokémon TV. Pokémon Origins tells the story of the very first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version, including the first steps of our hero Red as he sets off from Professor Oak’s laboratory. As he explores the Kanto region, he’ll encounter Team Rocket, battle his rival, and challenge the Pokémon League. Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue launched in North America in September 1998.

Pokémon Origins is a four-part adventure, taking a new perspective on the Pokémon hero story. The remaining three episodes will be added to Pokémon TV the days following the November 15 premiere. This can’t-miss opportunity for Pokémon fans can also be enjoyed on-the-go via the free Pokémon TV mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
