The Pokemon: Hisuain Snow release date is May 18, 2022. It’s being animated by Japanese animation company WIT Studio.

The new web anime is bringing us back to the past in Pokemon: Hisuain Snow! I haven’t watched a Pokemon anything in years, but the games hold a special place in my heart.

I received the Pokemon Red version for the Gameboy on my 6th or 8th birthday, and I’ve been playing off and on future generations since. But, unfortunately, the dozens of movies and seasons showing an eternal child, Ash Ketchum, and his Pikachu bored me.

But Pokemon: Hisuain Snow has my attention, and I can’t wait to watch it later this year!

What do we know about Pokemon: Hisuain Snow?

WIT Studio is producing it with Ken Yamamoto as director, Conisch is making the music, Taku Kishimoto is the screenwriter, and KURO is the character designer.

We know the only voice actors are Koki Uchiyama as adult Alec, Rie Kugamiya as child Alec, and Rikiya Koyama as Alec’s father. Pokemon: Hisuain Snow is a web anime that will be a three-part series on The Pokemon Channel and the official Pokemon Youtube channel.

Pokemon: Hisuain Snow is about a boy named Alec and his encounter with a Hisuain Zorua. Alec’s father taught him that humans and Pokemon can’t live together.

Will this encounter change his mind? Interestingly, in the teaser trailer image above, a young girl is looking at a Hisuain Zorua. She’s also in the top picture wearing a Zorua mask.

The Hisuain Zorua is a normal/ghost type and a spiteful fox in the Pokedex. They were driven to the Hisuain region by humans. But could not survive the harsh winter climate and residential Pokemon.

Their lingering souls were reborn, and they tend to attack any lone person or Pokemon they see, using illusions and feeding on the fear their target produces.

How does Pokemon: Hisuain Snow affect the timeline?

We don’t know if any characters from Pokemon: Arceus will make an appearance in Hisuain Snow. However, considering the web anime will only have three episodes, it might be best to focus on Alec and this young girl.

The Zorua are known for creating illusions. And ghosts have always been a part of the Pokemon universe. So I wouldn’t be surprised if the girl was already dead or will die during the anime.

But we’ll have to wait a bit before getting our answers. Stay tuned!
