I got super excited about this but quickly realized it's a special, not a new anime series. That would have been fantastic. Still, can't really complain, this still looks like it will be really cool.

Same here Daniel, or at least based on Adventures but sadly that's probably never going to happen...

Any way looking forward to this :D

Added to trailer list. Didn't expect this one. I'm stoked to see a fresh, new Pokemon series.

new trainers Red and Green

It's like starting One Piece again to follow Law and Kid. I guess they are out of ideas.

Finally, a Pokemon anime without Ash or Pikachu :)

But it probably going a OVA only :(

They should do MANY OVAs.

I'm not sure. I thought this was a brand new anime series. I'll check.

They not ending Pokemon anime for this, it just going to be an OVA.

It a special, that usually means a couple of episodes (or one)

ENG version of the first trailer added and multiple episodes seem to be confirmed. No clue when THAT version will be released though (the vid didn't say).

MAJOR EDIT: Quote from the Pokemon Company's official Facebook:

To add to BigHeart711's updates, the special will have 4 episodes. Origins will premiere on Nov. 15.

See ANN link.

The company describes the story of the four-episode special:

Pokémon Origins tells the story of the very first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version, including the first steps of our hero Red as he sets off from Professor Oak's laboratory. As he explores the Kanto region, he'll encounter Team Rocket, battle his rival, and challenge the Pokémon League. Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue launched in North America in September 1998.

In the anime's story, Red encounters a strange Pokémon in the fierce battle with Team Rocket's leader Sakaki (Giovanni). Rival Green, Professor Ōkido (Professor Oak), Gym Leader Takeshi (Brock), Gym Leader Takeshi (Brock), Red's mother, and Team Rocket also appear in this special set in Kanto, the first region ever seen in the Pokémon franchise.

@takashichea: Looks like the quote didn't show up on my post. How messed up. XD Also, you repeated Takeshi's (Brock's) name twice.
