On November 28th, 2021, the official Japanese Twitter account posted an interview and The Pokémon Company also posted a corresponding press release to promote PM2019 91 and PM2019 92.

Onion, the Gym Leader of the Galar region Ghost Gym, is going to make his debut in the Pocket Monsters TV series, which airs every Friday at 6:55PM on the TV Tokyo Network! Onion, the mysterious boy that has an emotional bond with Ghost Pokémon, is going to play a major role for two weeks straight! Our spotlighted cast member is voice actress Chiyuki Miura, whom we've got a comment from!

In "The Ghost Train Departs...", which will air Friday December 17th, 2021, Satoshi and Go have gone to Shoot City Station to catch a train to Lateral Town. After seeing a masked boy drop a ticket, they decide to get on the somewhat creepy-looking "Ghost Train" in order to return it... But as they make their way through the train searching for the boy, Satoshi bumps into a mysterious stone, which seemingly leads to him starting to act weird...?

As they move through the cars in search of the masked boy, they discover a lot of Fuwante. Go is cautious, but Satoshi sets the Fuwante loose on Go and explodes with laughter when he sees him run away in fear! Go gets frustrated at how Satoshi calls him a coward and is acting uncharacteristically mean in general, but is also starting to feel supicious. However......?

Then, in "Gangar Does Its Best! The Road to Kyodaimax!!", which will air Friday December 24th, Satoshi and Go visit Onion, the Gym Leader of the Ghost Gym in Lateral Town, in order to make Gangar Kyodaimax. Onion tells them that Kyodaimaxing Satoshi's Gangar requires having it drink Dai Soup made from Dai Mushrooms. Will Gangar be able to gather Dai Mushrooms from the forest where lots of unique Ghost type Pokémon live without any problems arising, and then Kyodaimax?!

How will Onion be involved in the story of Satoshi and Go and the others over the next two weeks! Please pay attention to these must-see episodes for Pokémon fans!

We've got a comment from Chiyuki Miura, who plays Onion! We hope that you will take this opportunity to introduce the games to your friends and family.

"I was extremely happy when I learned I got cast. I've watched the Pocket Monsters TV series ever since I was a kid, and I have more memories tied to it than almost any other anime, so I can't believe I've going to be in it as THE Onion-kun! I gave the role my all, knowing that this is an extremely appealing character that lots of people really fell in love with when they played the video game, so he has to be portrayed with extreme care.

Onion-kun is so reticent it seems he's straight up bad at talking to people, which is precisely why I played every single word of his with great care while talking them over with the sound director. I'm looking forward to being able to bring you a new side of Onion-kun you didn't get to see in the video game, and I hope it will make you love him so much more. Please keep an eye on him as he tries his best in his own little way.
-Chiyuki Miura, voice of Onion

子どもの頃からずっと見ていた、思い出深いアニメの一つでもあったTVアニメ「ポケットモンスター」に、あのオニオンくん役で出られるなんて!と、出演が決まった時はとても嬉しかったです。ゲームをプレイした沢山の方が「好き」になるとても魅力にあふれた子なので、大切に演じなくては…!と、気合を入れて収録に臨みました。

人と会話することが苦手なのかな?と思うくらい口数が少ない子だからこそ、音響監督さんともディスカッションをしながら、オニオンくんの言葉ひとつひとつを丁寧に演じさせていただきました。原作ゲームでは見られなかった、彼の新しい一面を皆さんにお届けできるのが楽しみですし、もっともっとオニオンくんのことを「好き」になってもらえたら嬉しいです。彼なりに精一杯頑張っているところを、見守って頂けたらと思います。

CoroCoro Comic's Official website posted an article about this episode just before the original airing on December 17th, 2021. They also tweeted about the page on the official CoroCoro Comic Twitter account to promote it.

It's almost time for Anipoke! On the mysterious "Ghost Train", something strange happens to Satoshi!

pic

The anime "Pocket Monsters" will start airing soon! It airs every Friday at 6:55 p.m. and it is very popular! In this article, we'll introduce you to the Pokémon and characters that will appear in today's episode, as well as comments from the voice actors and director, and other Anipoke information you won't find anywhere else! Onion will be on the air for two weeks starting today!

pic

Satoshi and Go take the train to Shoot City Station to go to Lateral Town in the Galar region. Satoshi follows the masked boy to give him the ticket he dropped, but the boy goes into a suspicious door at the edge of the dimly lit station...

He goes through the door and finds an empty train platform. The announcement says that the train is headed to Lateral Town, and the two board the train... but it turns out to be a ghost train, full of strange phenomena!

pic

▲ The train is full of ghost-type Pokémon!

pic

▲ The two of them proceed through the pitch-black car in search of the masked boy... and Go! Behind you!

Satoshi and Go head to the seat number on the ticket in search of the masked boy. On the way, Satoshi knocks over a mysterious stone that seems to be displayed with great care. And that's when Satoshi suddenly changes! The ghost train is in chaos!

pic

▲ Satoshi tries to scare Go with Ghost Pokémon. What's with the tension?

pic

▲ And then there's this expression. Clearly, something is amiss...?

pic

▲ It must be because of the stone that Satoshi knocked over earlier!?

After passing through several cars full of ghost Pokémon, the two manage to meet up with the masked boy... but from here, the ghost train is in even more trouble!

pic

▲ The masked boy is surprised to see Satoshi and the others on board (↑he is also surprised in this picture).

pic

▲ It's a Mikaruge!! Does that mean the stone that Satoshi knocked over earlier...!?

pic

▲ And a battle! Is the opponent still the Mikaruge? Or is it?

More on that in today's Anipoke! Satoshi and Go are still unaware of the masked boy's true identity, and it will be interesting to see how Onion will be involved in their story!
