Pokemon Twilight Wings episode 5 has finally arrived after a brief delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This time, it’s a more subtle character piece than past episodes, which tended to focus on a short story involving different gym leaders and trainers from Pokemon Sword and Shield. In “Assistant,” Pokemon Twilight Wings’ Oleana episode, we see what it’s like to be her for a day.
Essentially, it’s all about Oleana taking charge. After a brief introduction showing her roots, when Chairman Rose “discovered” her, we have an opportunity to better understand exactly what this vice president does every day and how involved she is when it comes to keeping every element of a company and city running. (Also, those who might like the idea of some sort of relationship between Rose and Oleana will have a few special scenes to enjoy.)
At the end of Pokemon Twilight Wings episode 5, the star of the next episode is teased. It seems the Stow-on-Side gym leader Allister will step into the spotlight for the sixth episode of this miniseries.
In case you missed them, here are links to the past episodes in this series.
- Episode 1: Letter: Chairman Rose is the focus character.
- Episode 2: Training: Fighting-type gym leader Bea is the star.
- Episode 3: Buddy: Hop’s Wooloo (and Hop) take the stage in this episode.
- Episode 4: Early-Evening Waves has water-type gym leader Nessa considering her purpose.
If the series follows the monthly schedule, then we could see Pokemon Twilight Wings episode 6 in July 2020. Pokemon Sword and Shield, the games upon which these animated shorts are based, are available for the Nintendo Switch.
