According to the official Pokemon website, to celebrate the release of the Nintendo 3DS game "Pokemon X.Y" on October 12th, a TV special named "Pokemon: The Origin" will air at 7pm on October 2nd on the TV Tokyo network. The story is based on the Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green games which are regarded as the origin of the Pokemon series.

Pokemon: The Origin on MAL
Modified by myanimelistllc, Aug 31, 2016 5:15 AM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I hope it gets good ratings because if it does, Ash/Satoshi will be gone for good and we'll get a full and definitive Pokemon experience in the future. The artstyle is a bit seinen-ish though so they could be gearing it more to us older fans.

I hope it won't be 1 episode special. It'd be nice if it evolved into TV series later too.

Ohh a special for X Y series. Similar to Pokemon special for BW2. I wish they made a series based on those characters : (. But this looks even better.

Is this the first time Red gets to appear in an anime adaption, if so, that's truly amazing. I kind of like this art style compared to Ash's adventures, I hope this does become a full series though.

This is how the series should have looked like.

I always pick Charmander as well, definitely watching it!

Wow, it's like they made a Pokemon anime JUST FOR ME! (Or at least one that favors an older audience - Production IG and all)
If they're adapting the Pokemon Adventures manga, it would make for a really cool series! Thank god it'll star Red and not that pussy ass bitch Ash haha.

Hope it can become a full series too. The thing I find the worst about the current anime is not necessarily Ash, just that it's the same protagonist for so long, so having something really different for a change is sure to be awesome.

Holy shit, it's actually Red from the games!

And he picked the most difficult Pokemon to start with too. Oh boy, the memories.

The Pokemon Origin is darker and more exciting than the wishy-washy popular anime. I really hope this would be a full-length anime though. I would recommend checking out the manga for any Pokemon fans.

Maybe if people like it, we might get a Pokéspe anime somewhere in the far future...
Probably won't happen though :(

The TV show went to shit a very long time ago but my memories of the games are still untarnished. I can't stress enough how nostalgic this is going to be.

It's much more commercially viable to just stick with low budget TV animation and not changing anything about the formula: Prepubescent boy gather friends, catch Pokemon and get badges. Rinse and repeat...

Red is badass he is actually intelligent! He's not anything like Ash who's an idiot. Red is older too which will be a welcome change!

Well, I wouldn't consider him the same Red as in the manga, he's just based on the same game character as both Ash and Red are. So the intelligent and badass attributes may not necessarily apply. Also, Red in the manga started at the age of 10 as well, but unlike Ash, he actually got older as time passed.
Anyway, not trying to be nitpicking, just wanted to make some things clear. Looking forward to this.

That's too bad. I would've loved to see Red from the manga in an anime!

I'll check it out either way. I mean, Production IG and Pokemon. That's pretty cool!

Pokemon anime following game story with characters who don't suck... Oh boy, how awesome would that be. Too bad Red's design is pretty bad in this promo.

Ah damn, and now I'll probably look for an emulator to play some old school when I have loads of work to do. Thanks Japan again -_-

I'm definitely going to watch this.I love just about anything Pokemon. Although I haven't been very attached to any of the characters from the Black and White anime. I'm looking forward to seeing a special based off the games.I also hope for a full anime of Pokemon Special.

I'll give the this a shot. Honestly, not a big fan of Pokemon although I did grow up during the time when the franchise was at its peak; used Pokemon anime in ages though..

Oh and here's a visual:

A special? Like only one episode?
From the looks of the trailer it looks like a couple of episodes more.
I haven't watched Pokemon for over a decade but this seems interesting enough to give it a try.

I watched this a few hours ago. I can't wait.

Yes, it's only a special, but the quality should be more than good.

I'm also excited for the upcoming XY series.

Don't really like pokemon that much, but if this looks like it will be sorta like the beginning like the first show back in the day without ash, than I may watch this.

Could be more. So far we only have one confirmed. Lance is shown in the trailer so it will either be rushed or a series.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Hopefully, it will lead to an actual season rather than a special or OVA.
