posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Anime adaptation of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games airs in Japan on October 17

The Pokémon television program Pokémon Smash debuted the first footage of the upcoming Pocket Monsters XY television anime on Sunday. The scenes show Satoshi (known as Ash in English) arrive with Pikachu in Miare City (Lumiose City) and Pokémon Keromatsu (Froakie), Harimaron (Chespin), and Fokko (Fennekin).

The Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games will launch on the Nintendo 3DS worldwide on October 12. The same new Pokémon in the upcoming anime will also be featured in this next generation of Pokémon games at the Kalos region.

The first television anime series based on Nintendo's Pokémon game franchise premiered in Japan in 1997, and it then premiered in the United States in 1998. Pocket Monsters XY will be the fifth new television anime title in the franchise, and first new one in three years (since Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! in 2010.)

Pocket Monsters XY will debut on October 17 in Japan.
