Sonic X Cartoon Summarize:

The following is a short summarize of what the upcoming cartoon series will be about. However, please note that all this info is UNCONFIRMED material, so I guarantee for nothing. But if it is true, please keep in mind that you heard it here first. ;)

Sonic is always on the go and free as the wind. Usually, he is also in constant battle with Dr. Eggman, a scientific genius of robot engeneering, who is creating evil robots to fulfil his dreams of building his own empire.

One day while battling Eggman as usual, Sonic accidentally sets off a mysterious machine. The tremendous energy blast generated by that machine causes a rip in time and space, and Sonic, his buddies, as well as Eggman and his allies are all sucked into a warp in time and space...

After a while Sonic realizes that they are now on a planet where Earth-like humans live. Sonic meets a 12-year old boy named Christopher, who saves him from drowning in a Swimming Pool (Sonic can't swim).

Chris comes from a wealthy family, but turns out to be shy and timid boy. However, while spending time with Sonic, he begins to long for the same speed, power and energy that he sees in Sonic.

In the meantime, Eggman and his robots have also reached the planet. Eggman immediately starts plotting new evil schemes. His first move is to search for the Chaos Emeralds, whose tremendous power reportedly help its owner to conquer the world.

So Sonic too ventures to find the Chaos Emeralds, and together with Chris and his friends tried to defeat Eggman and his robotic creations.

Sonic X Promotional Video Trailer:

Here I try to describe the "Sonic X" Promotional Video Trailer that was shown at the SEGA booth on the 17th World Hobby Fair in Japan. It's not perfect, but the best I could put together, so please bear with me. ;)

Sonic the Hedgehog Tails the Fox
Knuckles the Echidna Amy Rose
Shadow the Hedgehog Dr. Eggman Rouge the Bat
Cream and Cheese Christopher
Big the Cat

The first half of the video introduces the main characters. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy represent the 'good guys', while Shadow, Eggman and Rouge represent the 'bad guys'. In addition, there are also new characters like Cream & Cheese, and the 12 year old human boy Chris. Big the Cat is mentioned too, but he will probably have only a very minor part in the series.

In the second half, we first see how Chris rescues Sonic from drowning in a swimming pool, and they immediately become friends.

Robo-Cards are brought to Eggman Eggman pondering Which robot is the best choice?

Next Eggman and his robot creations are introduced. Eggman seems to use some 'Robo-Cards' and a Slot Machine to decide which of his robots he should pick for his evil scheme, and then sends it out for action.

From the distance, Sonic gazes at the city being destroyed by Eggman's creation. Then he starts running toward it with sonic speed.

Meanwhile, Knuckles tries to stop Eggman's machine that wreaks havoc in town.

We switch to Chris, who is shown picking up a helmet and then running out of his room. He and his friend Danny meet at a hangar where Tails and Amy are waiting with the "Tornado" plane...

This plane has more than two wings! Sonic's buddy Tails

After boarding the plane, they take off toward the action. After liftoff, Tails and extracts two extra wings, turning his plane into some sort of 'X-Fighter'.

Who's that mysterious figure behind Eggman? It comes closer ...
... closer ... It's Shadow the Hedgehog!

Cutting beck to Eggman, we notice Shadow standing behind him... obviously, he's part of the plan too, whatever it may be.

It's a bird ... It's a plane ... No, it's Sonic the Hedgehog!
Eggmans fortress ahead Sonic transforms into Super Sonic And heeere we go!
The ultimate battle

Meanwhile, Sonic has caught up with the "Tornado", jumping on top of it into his usual standing position. Then he transforms into SuperSonic and flies away toward his confrontation with Shadow.

Th-th-that's all, folks. But who is the mysterious figure?

After that, the "Sonic X" logo is displayed, followed by the image of a strange figure, that vaguely looks like merge between SuperSonic and Shadow, but it's not explained any further.
