Each episode will be approximately five minutes in length. Animation will be provided by Studio Colorido, which is known for its warm and welcoming visual designs and dynamic photographic techniques, as seen in the anime film Penguin Highway. The world of Pokémon is evolving as Trainers explore Galar, and this new era will be brought to life in the form of an anime series created by one of the leading animation studios in Japan.
The first episode of Pokémon: Twilight Wings is expected to premiere on January 15, 2020, on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
