Pokémon's first Galar Region animated short is utterly charming

Catch it here. 

If you're a bit of a Pokémon lore nerd, you'll want to keep an eye out for the monthly releases of Pokémon: Twilight Wings - a new animated series set in Sword and Shield's Galar region. And the first of these is out... right now.

Broken into seven episodes, the shorts detail "the dreams of Galar's residents, the realities they face, the challenges they must overcome, and the conflicts they must resolve". The animations and story in this episode are really endearing - and personally I'm a big fan of the amount of Corviknight. Bonus points if you spot all the references to London.

It's a nice little look into the background of the Galar region - and in future episodes you can expect to see "a variety of Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region appearing throughout the capsule series". So don't panic if your favourite's not here yet... although I'm not sure what they plan on doing with Alcremie.
