Of course while the synopsis explains a bit about what fans can expect from the first episode of the latest Pokemon anime, the title of the episode also confirms that it’s going to be all about the adorable baby Pikachu. So what’s the episode called? Birth of Pikachu. Anyone else thinking “Pika Pika Pikachu”?

Pokemon: The Series is set to kick off a brand new phase in Ash and Pikachu’s journey, back where it all began, and according to the synopsis it’s going to start even before then. Here’s what the synopsis says, “In a forest somewhere in Kanto, there once was a lonely Pichu. This Pichu – who was still quite young – had a certain encounter and farewell. This took place shortly before Ash and his partner Pikachu started travelling together. This is the beginning of the anime “Pocket Monster.” Right now we only know a bit about what to expect from the first episode, so it’ll be interesting to see if we’ll get to learn a bit more about Pikachu after the first episode.
