The Pokemon Company International have announced that the latest and twenty-third series of Pokemon will be known as Pokémon Journeys: The Series across Europe and North America and that, in the UK at least, it will receive a TV broadcast on POP! later this year with a special preview being shown next month on the TV channel.

The Japanese broadcast, known simply as Pocket Monsters, of Pokémon Journeys: The Series began shortly after Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield were released worldwide and acted as a ‘refresh’ of sorts with the series exploring the different regions within the Pokemon world as well as the brand new region of Galar. As part of this series Ash and his partner Pikachu will travel the Pokemon world, make new friends as well as meet familiar faces – all the while sporting an improved animation style.

Synopsis: Pokémon Trainer Ash Ketchum has a new plan: see the world! But first, he and his partner Pikachu are headed to the opening of the Cerise Laboratory, a research facility dedicated to uncovering the mysteries of Pokémon in every region. Ash meets Goh, another boy with boundless curiosity about Pokémon, and both are overjoyed when Professor Cerise asks them to become official research fellows. With Ash as determined as ever to become a Pokémon Master, and Goh aiming to catch one of every Pokémon (including the Mythical Mew), our heroes are in for adventure and excitement as they explore the wide world of Pokémon!

In the UK Pokémon Journeys: The Series will be broadcast on POP, who are currently broadcasting Pokemon: Sun & Moon as well as Pokemon: Diamond & Pearl on its sister TV channel POP! Max; however in the United States Pokémon Journeys: The Series will be available on demand through Netflix – with 12 episodes being added to the platform on the 12th June 2020 with additional episodes being added through regularly content drops.

A start date for the UK TV broadcast of Pokémon Journeys: The Series has yet to be announced, although a preview of the series will be shown, which will most likely be the first and second episode, on the 25th May 2020.  POP! is available on Freeview 206, Sky 616, Freesat 606 and Virgin Media 736.
