The Birth of Pikachu – Sword and Shield, Ep 1


The first episode of Pokèmon Sword and Shield aired yesterday in Japan.

The episode featured when Pikachu was still a Pichu and it’s life before meeting Ash. Pichu was being looked after by a pack of Kangaskahn. We also get to see Ash’s new companion, Gou and why it’s his dream to find Mew.

For those that missed out on the first episode of the new series, here’s the link to the full episode.

My personal opinion of this episode; I honestly really enjoyed and will be definitely be continuing to watch it. I like how they showed Pikachu’s life before meeting Ash. The episode set the story for the series out well in my opinion.
