The Pokémon Company International announced today that the new, highly anticipated Pokémon animated series, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series,” has launched in the U.K. exclusively on BBC iPlayer and CBBC. 6 episodes of the highly anticipated series have arrived in time for Trainers to tune in over the holiday season.
Featuring a never-before-seen storyline, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series” is the first new mainline animated Pokémon series released in more than 25 years. Fans will follow dual protagonists Liko and Roy — and their respective partner Pokémon, Sprigatito and Fuecoco — as they set off on action-packed adventures, encounter endearing characters like Friede and Captain Pikachu and uncover the mysteries of the Pokémon world.
A new adventure is beginning within the wide world of Pokémon! Arriving at Indigo Academy, a girl named Liko receives her first partner Pokémon, Sprigatito. But she soon finds herself pursued by the Explorers, a mysterious group that’s determined to take the pendant necklace she wears. Liko isn’t on her own, though, as Friede, Captain Pikachu and the other Rising Volt Tacklers offer her protection aboard their airship. Meanwhile, a boy named Roy dreams of becoming a Pokémon Trainer, unaware of the secret hiding within the Ancient Poké Ball he carries. As Liko, Roy and the Rising Volt Tacklers set sail for new horizons, what kind of discoveries await?
