This is a surprise, but a nice change. Maybe this will be the cartoon aimed at older kids and pre-teens, instead of young kids (and their parents) like the current one. I hope this ends up successful so maybe we can get more concurrent animes.
I'm hoping red isn't as asexual as ash and gets yellow by the end of the series.
I'm all for seeing a new animated take on the franchise. I don't dislike the current anime mind you, but it will be nice to see something else.

Anyway, I just remembered that Fire Red was the one and only Pokemon game I found actively boring. If this is based super-closely on the Kanto games I will probably find it terribly uninteresting as well. Gaaah.
So here's hoping they take enough liberties with the game content to make it actually interesting...
Also regarding this being released alongside XY... well, you know how x and y are the directional axises in mathematics? And how the point where they meet is caaaaaaaalled... the origin point? :3
This looks really interesting. I can't wait to learn more about it.
