Like a Moltres from the ashes
While Ash and Pikachu are set to depart from their roles as the protagonists of the Pokémon anime, the show must go on! We now know that the next chapter of the Pokémon saga will premiere in Japan on April 14, 2023. This series will star two brand new protagonists Liko and Roy (seen above) along with various Pokémon from Scarlet & Violet and other games.
We still don’t know exactly what these new characters will be like, or if there will be any lingering appearances by Ash and his friends. We also don’t know when the new episodes will start airing in other regions of the world, so stay tuned for more info!
