The new series of the Pokémon anime currently airing in Japan has been treated to its very first western trailer, alongside the news that it’ll be heading to both the US and UK later this year.
Known as ‘Pokémon Journeys’ in the west – the show will begin airing on 12th June in the US and on 1st September in the UK. It’ll be a Netflix exclusive in the US (with new episodes set to be added to the streaming service in every quarter of the year – thanks, Serebii), and will air on POP in the UK.
You can watch the new trailer for yourself above; familiar favourites Ash and Pikachu are joined by new companion Go as they set off on a new adventure. We get to see a whole bunch of older Pokémon like Lugia, Mew and Pichu, as well as a couple of new Pokémon Sword and Shield characters like Scorbunny and Corviknight.
It remains to be seen just how much of an impact the western version of the show might face thanks to the current production issues in Japan, but it certainly looks like a good chunk of the series has been localised and is ready to go.
Looking forward to watching this later in the year?
