The official Pokémon Youtube channel has released the first episode of Pokémon: Hisuian Snow. This roughly 6-and-a-half-minute-long debut contains gorgeous animation and introduces the thought-provoking cast. In addition, the Hisui region is displayed outside of Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the first time, emphasizing its naturalistic beauty.
The series has been stated to span three episodes, and the synopsis is viewable below:
Pokémon: Hisuian Snow 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.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus represents a long since necessary new step for the Pokémon franchise at large, ditching the mainline formula for an entirely new gameplay loop met with general praise from fans and critics alike. More freeform exploration and the drastically fresh setting aid in that freshness as it feels like the series has finally taken a step forward for the first time in what feels like eons.
The Hisui region houses various distinct biomes, from harsh tundra to warm, welcoming fields. In addition, the hub village, crafting, and more facets give players further reasons to sink their teeth into all of the exploratory gameplay mechanics.
