The latest Pokémon anime, Pokémon Master Journeys: The Series, will stream exclusively on Netflix in the United States.
Master Journeys is the 24th season of the main Pokémon anime series. The previous season of the show, Pokémon Journeys, saw series protagonist Ash explore the Galar region from the Pokémon Sword and Shield games, where he was joined by his newest traveling companions, Goh and Chloe. The new season expands the scope of the show to include all eight regions from previous Pokémon games, including a return to the Kanto region from the original game and the first season of the anime. Fan-favorite character Dawn will also return to the show this season, nine years after her last appearance. A new trailer released to the official Pokémon Youtube channel showcases Ash's encounter with Suicune, a legendary Pokémon from the Johto region.
The new season will debut on Sept. 10. The first 12 episodes of the season will be available on the premiere date, with new episodes being added in quarterly batches for the duration of the season.
The Pokémon anime series first aired in Japan in 1997 and is considered one of the most successful video game to anime adaptations ever made. The series has run for over 1000 episodes and has had multiple feature films and spinoff series. The anime is based on Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon video game franchise, which began with Pocket Monsters: Red and Green Version in 1996 and has continued with its most recent release, Pokémon Sword and Shield, which was released for the Nintendo Switch in 2019. The next games in the series, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which are remakes of a 2006 DS game, are scheduled to be released on Nov. 19.
