New Pokémon Master Journeys Trailer Sees Ash Reunited With Dawn and Cynthia

A new trailer for Pokémon Master Journeys reveals that Ash, Goh and Chloe will be joined on their journey by some old friends.

The new trailer was uploaded to the official Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel and previews the show's next story arc, which will be told in a two-part episode and will see Ash, Goh and Chloe traveling north to the Sinnoh region. There, Ash will reunite with the Sinnoh League's champion, Cynthia, and Dawn, who travelled with Ash and Brock during the original Diamond and Pearl season of the anime. Ash will need all the help he can gets, as his group will apparently do battle with Palkia and Dialga, two legendary Pokémon with the ability to control the fabric of space and time. In addition to the new trailer, The Pokémon Company also released a new poster image to promote the series' new Diamond and Pearl focused run of episodes.

The new episodes will be released in Japan to coincide with the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl for the Nintendo Switch. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are remakes of the original Nintendo DS entries in the franchise, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions, which were originally released in 2006. These remakes are the first games in the main Pokémon series to not be developed by Game Freak. Both versions of the game will be released on Nov. 19.

This season of the Pokémon Master Journeys anime features Ash and friends revisiting regions from past Pokémon generations, and is part of the entire franchise's look back at its own history as it celebrates the 25th anniversary of the franchise's debut. The original games in the series, Pocket Monsters Red and Green Version, were originally released in Japan for the black-and-white Game Boy in 1996. The games revitalized interest in Nintendo's aging handheld system, which at that point was already seven years old, and now serve as the foundation of an entertainment empire that has expanded beyond games into the mediums of anime, manga, live-action movies, a collectible card game and billions of dollars worth of toys, apparel, and other merchandise.

In addition to Pokémon Master Journeys, Nintendo has also released another anime series, Pokémon Evolutions, which adapts key scenes from all eight generations of the video games. The new series premiered in September with an episode focused on the latest games in the series, Pokémon Sword and Shield. New episodes of the series are released weekly via the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
