Pokémon BW anime COMPLETE rewrite


Amid the snow falling down in flakes from the sky

  2. They/Them
Two Septembers ago I got back into Pokémon. I made a Pokémon anime based on the Black and White games, and also (depending on your view) a COMPLETE rewrite of the Best Wishes series.
Then I went over it last March and realized, “Just where did I go wrong? Everywhere, so I guess I’ll rewrite this entire thing.” I kept some of the elements in. Anyway, here’s the series:

Pokémon: The Series: Black and White
Yeah. I couldn’t come up with a better title or a title that didn’t sound similar to S14 of the Ash anime. (If anyone comes up with a better name, thank you!)
The series is planned to have two seasons (S1 is based on BW1, while S2 is based on BW2).
The show takes place in these years: 2011-2012. Also, when I was planning the rewrite, I decided to take some Pokémon from Ash, Iris and Cilan and give them to the main four.
- Hilbert:
  • Palpitoad (Ash’s)
  • Gigalith (Ash’s; evolved)
  • Excadrill (Iris’s)
- Hilda:
  • Emolga (Iris’s)
  • Unfezant (Ash’s)
  • Krookodile (Ash’s)
- Cheren:
  • Leavanny (Ash’s)
  • Crustle (Cilan’s)
- Bianca:
  • Scraggy (Ash’s)
  • Stunfisk (Cilan’s)
Anyways, with that said, here’s the characters.
(And yes, the games are based on Black and Black 2).

Yes, I did something similar to Sawyer while I was writing Rosa, in case anyone notices.

Other Things​

I’ll post the episode list in this thread, and then the first episode will come, if anyone asks. I’ve only made one screenshot for it (traced, I’m so not very good at drawing in Pokémon artstyle, so if anyone wants to help make screenshots for this, I’d be grateful for the help).
Edit: The screenshot in question and the OG photo. (Credit to WillDinoMaster55 for Grass background.)

See, everyone? This is how sincerely bad I am at drawing.
And, I made an OP for Season 2 (B2W2 trailer exists but BW one doesn’t, it’s gonna be hard to make an OP for Season 1 lol). I made it last April and redid it. However, I can’t upload it at all unless I make a YouTube channel, which is not gonna happen because I will get in trouble if I did (don’t ask why).
