Most of you are probably familiar with Pokemon Generations – the webseries has been running on Youtube for a while now, and there are only four episodes left. But did you know that Pokemon Generations wasn’t available in Japanese until today?

That changed today, however, as the first six episodes are now available in Japanese. You can check them out on the Japanese Pokemon Youtube channel here.
