Pokémon Origins (Japanese: ポケットモンスター THE ORIGIN Pocket Monsters: The Origin) is a miniseries that first aired in its entirety in Japan on October 2, 2013 and premiered the first episode in English on Pokémon TV on November 15, 2013, with subsequent episodes following on November 18, 20, and 22, 2013. The plot closely follows that of Pokémon Red and Green, but is aesthetically based on the artwork, sprites and other minor elements from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen (and to a far lesser extent, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver), as well as including some unique features, such as Blue's green jacket and Mega Evolution. It stars Red as the protagonist and Blue as Red's rival.

The story is split into four episodes. All four episodes were released on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan on December 4, 2013. On January 30, 2014, the English dubs of all four episodes were made available on the Hulu streaming service for the United States.

Background Information

  • Unlike the main anime, all of the Pokémon make generic animal noises, making the world portrayed in this special considerably more realistic. However, these sounds were still replaced in the English dub.
  • The sound effects and visual effects for Poké Balls (such as when a Pokémon is being sent out) differ in comparison to the effects used in the main Pokémon anime, instead being more loyal to the game. Another example is the three small stars that pop out of a Poké Ball when it has successfully caught a Pokémon.
