New Pokémon Anime Scheduled For Fall



The Pokémon: Diamond & Pearl series will be reaching its conclusion soon. Scheduled to begin this fall, after it concludes, is Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes, based on the Black & White games, and set in the Isshu region.


Leaked beta art, released earlier in the week, gives you a glimpse of one of the new characters — Iris. The bat monster near her head is named Koromori. The beta art also illustrates evolved forms of Mijumaru and Tsutaja.


Whether or not Ash will remain the star of the show, however, is unconfirmed at this point. While the beta art contains his image, a preview released at the end of the latest Pokémon: Diamond & Pearl episode depicted a silhouette of Iris alongside a new male character, as seen below.



No, that isn’t a Chansey evolution.
