New Pokémon series premieres with hour-long special April 14 in Japan
The Pokémon Company has announced the release of their latest anime in the franchise, Pokémon Horizons: The Series. This time the series follows the journey of the new protagonists Liko and Roy in the region of Paldea. The departure of iconic character Ash Ketchum has fans wondering what this new adventure holds in store.
The new trailer the company has released offers a glimpse of what’s to come. Liko stars with her adorable partner Sprigatito and Roy with his unusual Poké Ball, both keen to explore the region and challenge the strongest Pokémon. The series promises to be exciting as the duo embark on their journey of self-discovery and uncover the mysteries of ancient artifacts.
While Ash Ketchum’s absence might make some fans feel nostalgic, Liko and Roy promise to bring a new and exciting dynamic to the series. Liko in particular is expected to be an intriguing character to watch as she navigates her journey while also searching for the truth about a mysterious follower. The addition of Professor Fried and Captain Pikachu also adds new levels to the story, and it will be interesting to see how they fit into the narrative.
In addition to the anime’s title and premiere date, the Pokémon Company has also released a new opening song, “Dokimeki Diary asmi feat. chinozo” revealed. Fans can look forward to a catchy and upbeat tune that will keep them hooked for every episode.
Discover the varied landscapes and powerful Pokémon of the Paldea region

The region was first introduced in the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet video games, and fans are excited to see it come to life in the anime. The region promises to be full of varied landscapes, new Pokémon, and different bosses that Liko and Roy will encounter.
Ash Ketchum’s departure also means that the series has an opportunity to explore new storylines and themes. While Ash’s story has certainly been inspirational, it’s time for new characters to take the spotlight and for the franchise to evolve.
