Twilight Wings appear to be similar to Pokémon Generations, another animated series separate from the main show, which went live to the official Pokémon YouTube channel.

Twilight Wings may only center on characters from Galar, whereas Generations focused on all the regions that have shown up in the games. Every three episodes were about one particular region. For example, the first three games took place on Kanto, while the preceding three chapters took place on Johto.
