Remember the short animation focused on Barry’s adventure that was released not long after the launch of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl? For any fan who missed out on the animated web series Pokémon Evolutions, do yourselves a favor and watch it before revisiting its fifth episode with this production video!

Despite ending quite a while ago, The Pokémon Company has dropped a behind the scenes look of Pokémon Evolutions’ Sinnoh-focused entry “The Rival”.

As can be seen in the video above, The Pokémon Company’s behind the scenes look of “The Rival” highlights the episode’s scenes from the Lake Verity ambush, Staraptor versus Dragonite battle, Spear Pillar confrontation, and Barry’s final showdown. From rough sketches to early outlines, the video has a whole lot of early storyboards to appreciate!

The Pokémon Company generally does not release videos of their animations’ creation process, but this short glimpse will surely be a welcoming surprise to both animators and fans of the series. If The Pokémon Company happens to upload more of these behind the scenes shorts, we will be sure to let you all know!
