In the first episode of Pokémon: Twilight Wings, a new seven-part animated YouTube series located in the Galar region of Pokémon Sword and Shield, A young hospitalized man looks at the gentle and elegant President Rose to help him realize his dreams of pocket monsters. Rose does not disappoint.
The episode, titled “The Letter”, lasts only a little more than six minutes, but it’s an excellent six minutes. The animation is beautiful. The music is touching and suggestive. The story is about a sick young man named John who dreams of seeing the champion of the Galar region, Leon, in person. When John learns that the president of the region’s league, Mr. Rose, comes for a surprise visit, he writes a letter conveying his aspiration.
John ends the letter just when the president and his assistant finish their visit. Can the child reach the roof before the couple leaves in their flying taxi?
It’s short, but very sweet, like the incredible President Rose. So busy, but so considerate. I just started to dive into Sword and shield, so it’s great to see how the people and places of the game come alive. I’m encouraging John, and I can’t wait to see where the series will go.
