The announcement offered some details about the stars of the series. The leads are a young man named Alec and a Hisuian Zoroa. Hisuian Zorua is a normal and ghost-type Pokemon with a tragic background. But throughout the series, people will see the relationship develop between Alec and one of them. The splash art for the three-episode series shows Alec, who is wearing a Zoroark mask, meeting the Pokemon.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus isn’t the entry in the Pokemon series to inspire a short, anime web series. For example, it happened for Pokemon Sword and Shield as well. Pokemon: Twilight Wings, by Studio Colorido and Filmony, featured short episodes online focusing on characters from the series.

Episode 1 of the Pokemon: Hisuian Snow short series will appear on May 18, 2022. People will be able to watch it on Pokemon TV and YouTube. Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available for the Nintendo Switch.
