Pokémon: Twilight Wings, which is separate from Pokémon the Series, is set in the Galar region, where Pokémon battles have developed into a cultural sensation.

The world of Pokémon is evolving as Trainers explore Galar, and this new era will be brought to life in the form of an anime series created by one of the leading animation studios in Japan.

The first episode of Pokémon: Twilight Wings is expected to premiere on January 15, 2020, on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
