Pokémon fans will be able to watch a new adaptation of the original Pokémon games without Ash with a new show airing in Japan this October.
It's currently uncertain whether it'll form part of a spin-off series, or is intended to be a one-off special, but Pokémon: The Origin (or Pocket Monsters: The Origin) will feature protagonist Red, going up against rival Green. The storyline will follow the original Kanto games closely - Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, as released in Japan on the Game Boy many moons ago,.
Brock was also shown, but resembles his game look more than the original animé series version.
What are your thoughts on Origin - would you like to see a localised version and a full series?
