Pokemon Scarlet and Purple marks the arrival of the ninth generation of Pokemonand that is, we can see new creatures that are causing a sensation among pokemon trainersthis time, focused on the region of paleswhich with its open world mechanics puts at our disposal the ability to capture more than 400 Pokémon.
Something that seems quite striking to us is that Pokémon is not only its series of video games that arrive on each console of Nintendobut also has a popular anime series that has been on the air for 25 years telling the story of Ash Ketchum (recently crowned champion) and fighting against the Team Rocket and all regional variants of enemies.
Each new generation of Pokémon on Nintendo consoles means new characters and Pokémon appearing in the anime or spin-off series. With the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple on the hybrid console of nintendoswitchwe have seen that the most recent installment of the franchise has managed to break historical sales records despite the bugs, naturally the Pokémon from Paldea will also appear in the Pokémon anime.
In the first episode that we are presented with related to this new region of Paldea we can see Team Rocket with sprigatito, the Grass-type starter of the ninth generation, these have taken a starring role alongside the first Pokémon from Paldea to appear in anime form. He has done it in a special that will be liked by all the trainers who chose Sprigatito as their starter in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple.
As you can see, this short introduces us to Team Rocket, giving a tour of the Paldea region, and seeing Sprigatito, Meowth He has become jealous, this due to his great grudge with the other feline Pokémon. In the end, Sprigatito manages to disable them and escapes from the place, so he subtly finished off Team Rocket, and avoided being captured. This series of Team Rocket shorts in Paldea will have two more episodes (we assume that with fuecoco Y Quaxly).
It is very likely that a series of Pokémon set in Paldea will be announced later, as has recently happened with Pokémon: Chronicles of Arceusthe Pokémon tape inspired by the video game of Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
