The drama show will be officially titled Pocket ni Bouken o Tsumekonde in Japanese. The full title can also be translated to “Cram an Adventure Inside the Pocket.” The trailer shows more details to the upcoming drama show, following its initial reveal in late August 2023.

Nanase Nishino, a former Nogizaka46 member who is also an avid Pokemon fan, will star in this drama as Madoka Akagi. She newly works at the advertising agency ADventure. Madoka will rediscover her Pokemon passion after her mother sends her a Game Boy Pocket with a Pokemon Red cartridge that she last played 20 years ago.

The 100-second PokeTsume trailer also shows that many members of ADventure will be comparable to some of the first-generation Pokemon. For example, the company’s chief is very forgetful like a Slowbro, and one of Madoka’s colleagues is as useless as a Magikarp. Aya Hirano will also appear in this drama show as Yoko Meguro, a woman who is tenacious in both work and romance like a Ninetales.

The trailer is available to watch on Poké Times, the official X account for Pokemon-related news in Japan.

Pocket ni Bouken o Tsumekonde, also known as PokeTsume, will start airing in Japan on October 19, 2023, at 24:30 JST / 11:30am ET. It is worth noting that Japanese television channels typically use a 30-hour format where the date is only updated at 6am. Therefore in regular time, the drama show will begin on October 20, 2023, at 12:30am JST.
