Pokémon, new trailer for live-action series to be released in Japan this month
Following the announcement in August, TV Tokyo today released a new trailer for the Pokétsume, the new live-action series of the Pokémon series that will be broadcast in Japan starting October 19.
This video, which can be seen in the tweet at the bottom of the news, gives us a new look at this series starring Madoka Akagi, a girl who grew up playing Pokémon Red as a child along with her siblings in Mashiro, a town in the Kanto region. After graduating from college, Madoka began working at a company that makes kamaboko, a typical Japanese food, and then moved to the advertising agency ADventure.
Madoka’s dream does not go as she had planned, and one day she discovers that she has to give a presentation that will decide the fate of the company. And it is at this difficult moment that Madoka receives a package from her parents containing a Game Boy Pocket and the copy of Pokémon Red that she played as a child: she starts playing and realizes that it contains something important for her life.
As a reminder, Madoka is played by Nanase Nishino, a former member of the idol group Nogizaka46 who has had roles in other Japanese TV series and films in the past, also winning some awards.
Pokétsume will be broadcast in Japan from October 19.
