The Pokémon Company has officially revealed the name and logo of their upcoming anime series: ‘Pokémon Horizons: The Series,’ alongside a new trailer.

The series is scheduled to premiere on April 14, 2023, in Japan and sometime in 2023 worldwide. This new series marks a departure from Ash Ketchum, who has been the protagonist of the anime series since its beginning in 1997, and unlike the previous anime series, this show will feature two new protagonists, Liko and Roy.

Liko and Roy are accompanied by Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly, the starter Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Liko is from the Paldea region, while Roy is from the Kanto region.

About the anime:

In “Pokémon Horizons: The Series,” dual protagonists Liko, whose partner Pokémon is Sprigatito, and Roy will encounter many characters during their journey, including a group led by Friede and Captain Pikachu called the Rising Volt Tacklers. Traveling across the Pokémon world on an airship, the Rising Volt Tacklers include Orla, who enjoys mechanical and electrical work and is accompanied by her partner Pokémon, Metagross; Murdock, who is skilled at cooking, and his partner Pokémon, Rockruff; Mollie, who specializes in healing treatments, and her partner Pokémon, Chansey; and Ludlow. Liko and Roy will also come across Amethio, who is joined by his partner Pokémon, Ceruledge, and belongs to an organization called the Explorers, as well as a popular video streamer known as Nidothing.

“‘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.”
