At the end of today's episode of Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl, a short preview for the upcoming anime series based on the Pocket Monsters Black and Pocket Monsters White video games was shown. The preview revealed the name of the series, Pocket Monsters Best Wishes! (ポケットモンスターベストウイッシュ), and showed the silhouettes of two new characters. TV Tokyo's official DP site updated with the same information shortly after. Some time ago, an animators' guide for this upcoming series was posted online, showing off what can be assumed to be the characters starring in the first episode. While the picture was taken with a grain of salt, the silhouette revealed today is clearly showing the girl from this guide, making it extremely likely it's the real thing.

Well, so long Dawn...and possibly Brock.

I hope this girl proves more interesting than Dawn if we're going to have to watch her for 200 episodes.

It does seem like the original leaked image is indeed infact legit. I'm not a big fan of the title of the show though. I was hoping it was just going to be "Black and White". Best Wishes sounds too 'Dubbish'.

I think that "Best Wishes" could work as long as it has some sort of deep plot relevance. Other than that, man that girl character has some crazy hair.

Well, the name can be taken to be a pun on the region name, Isshu (イッシュ), which is spelled the same was as the last part of the series name.

Mustachioed man is named Don George.

Koromori is a combination of koro koro (the sound of rolling) and koumori (bat), replacing the 'u' in koumori with the "ro" of koro.


I do so very much hate the title though. So many better titles could have come from "BW" than "Best Wishes". Unless Satoshi/Ash is gonna have a Jirachi, they need to change the title >_>

It's probably a good thing Satoshi's new companion isn't the BW Protagonist♀, because she is old enough for Takeshi to hit on, and then we'd never get rid of him... and if he is coming back eventually, then at least the new companion is young enough that we wont be seeing him constantly hitting on her followed by the subsequent assault on his posterior (Oh Croagunk, I'll miss your poisonous kanchou-ing)

Randomness makes the world go round. So, I guess I spin the world right 'round, baby right 'round. Kuru kuru kuru! And spin!

That bat Pokemon does look like a cross between a Koffing and a Zubat. XD

And maybe Ash too...or the Ash we all know and love...

EDIT: Wait, Ash is in the series, so is Team Rocket. Not sure about Pikachu though...

Ash and Team Rocket were seen on that other model sheet.

Dawn leaving was a given, and it seems like they've finally given up on Brock. I wonder if this is the end of Contests in the anime too, it doesn't seem like they're as popular as they used to be in the series.

I kinda liked the whole thing... i learnt to start liking new stuff when it comes to pokemon... since we love the series, games, cards, etc... we'll have to get used to the new thing hahahaha ;) I also think the title could have been a lil more planned to come out a better one than best wishes, but since I realized 'wish' is pronounced the same way as the new region name (in japanese), i found it interesting ^-^

I had a feeling for a long time DP was going to be Brock's last saga. His lack of Pokemon and new captures this arc pointed to it, as well as his lack of overall screentime.

This new guy will obviously last longer than Tracey did in the anime. I doubt Brock will ever come back if he proves to be a popular replacement.

Between that and Misty being ignored and forgotten throughout DP, it seems like the writers are done with all the older characters.

The new girl looks bad. Seriously, how can we move from stylish Dawn to... this? Not sure if Brock will be in, maybe the new guy is a foe? I'm more curious about the guy with the Umbreon and where the heck is Wobuffet?

I thought they were going to use the BW heroine from the games, like they did with May and Dawn. Doesn't really make sense to use a made-up character than the game female heroine.

Dawn only traveled with Ash for one region too.

The anime without dawn and brock... Brock is gonna be replaced with that fat old guy... I am never gonna watch the 5th gen anime, play their games or anything! How are we going to live! Ash's outfit is soo gay (not as in i like men and i am a man or the happy thing) it's just the anime guys cant draw! They can get the money off anyone else exept me! I mean, the girl looks like she will do gym battles! What will happen to the lovely dovely thing with nures joy anf officer jenny!? The fat guy is too old to do that part!

Ash and Pikachu would stay in the anime. But if Ash goes, Pikachu goes and if Ash stays Pikachu stays because Pikachu is Ash's main

I think we've seen enough of Dawn. In fact, she got old after the first 50 or so DP episodes. The DP trio wasn't a very memorable group.

I'll be looking forward to Iris.

Well since this guy probably isn't the professor as some people suggested when the beta art was released but Professor Araragi's wasn't, I wonder what his role will be in the show. Seems odd that they would put him on the art if he wasn't going to be a significant character in the show.
