Pokémon has released a Looney Tunes-inspired short

Mimikyu classic era of cartoons.

The Pokémon Company has released a short episode inspired by the classic era of American animation, and it's well worth a watch.

The four-minute animation stars a hungry Scraggy as he hoovers up a trail of beans which have dropped out of a bag. But the bag isn't any ordinary bag... it's actually a Mimikyu in disguise.

If you're a fan of Pokémon or the golden age of animation riffed on so brilliantly by Cuphead, this short but sweet episode is worth your time.

Pokémon's anime series is still on hiatus, but The Pokémon Company is keeping kids entertained on YouTube.

Pokémon: Twilight Wings, the web-only animation series which ties into recent games Sword and Shield, released its latest episode today.

Rather brilliantly, it includes numerous nods to Sword and Shield's own marketing campaign, such as its 24-hour forest livestream and reveal of Sirfetch'd.
