Still on the horizon
Back in December 2023, the Pokémon Company International announced that the new Pokémon animated series, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series,” would premiere in the U.S. on Feb. 23, 2024, exclusively on Netflix. Unfortunately that is no longer the case, and the premiere has now been bumped to March 7th, 2024. No reason for the delay was given.
Featuring a never-before-seen storyline, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series” will follow dual protagonists Liko and Roy — and their partner Pokémon, Sprigatito and Fuecoco, respectively — 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?
