In collaboration with the prominent animation studio, WIT STUDIO, Pokémon: Hisuian Snow is a three-part limited animated series. The first episode will be released on May 18th while the release dates for future episodes will be revealed later on.

"Pokémon: Hisuian Snow is a story that takes place during this ancient age when the relationship between people and Pokémon was very different. It tells the story of a boy named Alec and his encounter with a Hisuian Zorua. When he was younger, Alec's father taught him that people and Pokémon cannot live together. But Alec's interactions with the Zorua might offer a different lesson. Aboard a boat bound for the Hisui region, the protagonist Alec reminisces about the first time his father took him there. Over the span of three episodes, Pokémon: Hisuian Snow will go into detail about Alec's stories from the past."

The Pokémon: Hisuian Snow will be introducing its viewers to Hisuian Pokémon and new characters, who are:

Alec is heading to the Hisui region in search of medicinal herbs. He is a mild-mannered young man who is studying to become a doctor. As a child, he once accompanied his father on a visit to the Hisui region. He had an adventurous and mischievous side to him when he was a child.

Alec’s father is a woodworker. He originally lived in a different region, but recently moved to the Hisui region to procure materials. He came to fear Pokémon after a certain incident.


Zorua (Hisuian Form), the Spiteful Fox Pokémon who lives in the region. It is said that the lingering spirits of Zorua who were chased out of their homeland and perished have returned to life in this form, fueled by the power of their malice toward humans and Pokémon.
