A trailer has dropped for the upcoming live-action Pokemon series PokeTsume.
The series follows Madoka Akagi (played by Nanase Nishino), a young woman who just moved to Tokyo to work for a company and finds herself feeling listless and homesick.
To help support her daughter, Madoka’s mother sends a care package including some of her old things. Among them is an old Game Boy and a copy of Pokemon Red.
While playing the game, Madoka appreciates parallels between the characters in the game to her own situation; seeing similarities in characters like her rival co-worker, or another who reminds her of a Magikarp just trying to get by.
You can check out the trailer for PokeTsume below.
