The release date of Pokemon: Hisuain Snow is May 18, 2022. It is animated by the Japanese animation company WIT Studio.
The new web anime takes us back in time in Pokemon: Hisuain Snow! I haven’t seen Pokémon in years, but the games hold a special place in my heart.
I received the Pokemon Red version for the Gameboy on my 6th or 8th birthday and have been playing with future generations ever since. But unfortunately I’m bored with the dozens of movies and seasons that feature a forever child, Ash Ketchum, and his Pikachu.
But Pokemon: Hisuain Snow has my attention and I can’t wait to see it later this year!
What do we know about Pokemon: Hisuain Snow?
WIT Studio is producing it with Ken Yamamoto directing, Conisch making the music, Taku Kishimoto writing the screenplay and KURO the character designer.
We know the only voice actors are Koki Uchiyama as Alec as an adult, Rie Kugamiya as Alec as a child, and Rikiya Koyama as Alec’s father. Pokemon: Hisuain Snow is a web anime that will be a three-part series on Pokemon Channel and Official Pokemon Youtube Channel.
Pokemon: Hisuain Snow is about a boy named Alec and his encounter with a Hisuain Zorua. Alec’s father taught him that humans and Pokémon can’t live together.
Will this encounter change his mind? Interestingly, in the teaser trailer above, a young girl is looking at a Hisuain Zorua. She is also in the picture above, wearing a Zorua mask.
The Hisuain Zorua is a normal/ghost type and spiteful fox in the Pokedex. They were driven to the Hisuain region by people. But could not survive the harsh winter climate and residential Pokémon.
Their lingering souls have been reincarnated and they tend to attack every single person or Pokemon they see, using illusions and feeding on the fear their target generates.
How does Pokemon: Hisuain Snow affect the timeline?
We don’t know if characters from Pokemon: Arceus will make an appearance in Hisuain Snow. Considering the web anime will only have three episodes, it might be best to focus on Alec and this young girl.
The Zorua are known for creating illusions. And ghosts have always been a part of it Pokemon Universe. So I wouldn’t be surprised if the girl was already dead or will die during the anime.
But we’ll have to wait a bit before we get our answers. Stay tuned!
