If Pokemon: Twilight Wings left you wanting for more information about its production, this interview with series director Shingo Yamashita and his assistant Yoh Watanabe might address that need, as they talk about their creative approaches and goals, hidden secrets, and the Pokemon memories that fueled it all.
Pokemon Sun & Moon‘s TV series wrapped up after 3 years, and Pokemon is now embarking on a whole new adventure. Let’s explore what made its production a resounding success: not the individual accomplishments like pipeline improvements and animation-friendly designs, but rather how all those aspects came together cohesively to define the show’s identity.
Welcome back to the most special post of the year! As is tradition, we’ve gathered writers from different communities but a shared trait: a love of animation and all it encompasses.
