Gotta catch ‘em all from the beginning with the Pokémon Indigo League blu-ray set

If you’re longing for some original Pokémon nostalgia after the newest movie, you’re in for a treat: Viz Media has announced a blu-ray set for the first fifty-two episodes, which will be released on November 14. The Pokémon Indigo League boxset will retail at $69.99 and include some physical goodies in addition to an HD version of the classic first anime series.

The POKÉMON INDIGO LEAGUE (rated TV-Y7) features the beloved series’ complete first season (52 episodes) presented for the first time on Blu-ray in a six-disc set and carries an MSRP of $69.99 U.S. / $81.99 CAN. The set features episodes presented in full 1080p High Definition with English dubbed as well as English SDH subtitled dialogue options. Notable bonus features include a complete “Pokérap” video and “Who’s That Pokémon?” digital art gallery. A recipe card from THE POKÉMON COOKBOOK: EASY & FUN RECIPES and a POKÉMON ADVENTURES Vol. 1 mini-manga sampler are also included.

As POKÉMON INDIGO LEAGUE opens, it’s Ash Ketchum’s tenth birthday, and he’s ready to do what many 10-year-olds in the Kanto region set out to do—become a Pokémon Trainer! Things don’t go exactly the way he planned when he ends up with Pikachu instead of a standard first Pokémon, and winning Gym badges turns out to be much tougher than he thought. Luckily, he’s got former Gym Leaders Brock and Misty at his side, along with a bevy of new Pokémon friends, including Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander.

“Long-time Pokémon fans will want to revisit all of Ash and Pikachu’s classic adventures in bold HD in this collection-worthy edition,” says Charlene Ingram, VIZ Media’s Director of Animation Marketing. “Catch them on Blu-ray in time for the holidays!”

It’s going to be a pretty electrifying Christmas season with new Pokémon games coming extremely soon, and with some new manga coming next year, it’ll be a great season for fans of the franchise. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
