Pokemon Anime Reveals More New Characters

The Japanese Pokemon Twitter account Approved a short trailer dated March 17, 2023 announcing four new characters coming to the next anime series.

First, fans finally learned the name of the mystery man with two-toned hair who was teased in a previous trailer. The mysterious trainer is apparently named Amethyo, and he uses a Ceruledge as his partner Pokémon.

Besides Amethyo, fans were treated to designs of two other characters named Zir and Conia. Zir, the male trainer with the blonde mohican, uses a Rhydon while Conia, the female trainer, uses a Golduck.

According to information from the reliable Pokemon news source, Amethyo may just be the captain of the mysterious Explorers team that Zir and Conia are part of. Although Explorers are not directly stated to be an evil team, Zir and Conia’s designs certainly carry shadows of evil organizations in the past.
