The Pokémon Company has now officially announced Pokémon Horizons, the next series of Pokémon anime.
This trailer was shown after the final episode of the Pokémon Ultimate Journeys that aired in Japan. This was the one that marked the end of Ash and Pikachu’s story arc which has spanned for 26 years or more.
The trailer features the two new protagonists of the anime, which are Liko and Roy. Liko’s partner is a Sprigatito and Roy. They will encounter many characters during their journey like the group led by Friede and Captain Pikachu called the Rising Volt Tacklers. They are currently traveling across the Pokémon world on an airship with crew members like Orla with partner Metagross, Murdock with partner Rockruff, Mollie with partner Chansey, and Ludlow.
“‘Pokémon Horizons: The Series’ is set to be a thrilling journey that explores new wonders and makes fascinating discoveries about the Pokémon world,” said Taito Okiura, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “The latest ‘Pokémon Horizons: The Series’ trailer sheds further light on the mysterious adventures that await Liko and Roy, and we invite Trainers to join in unraveling these secrets when the series begins premiering outside of Japan later this year.”
