Pokemon Journeys promised it would be an anime unlike any before it, and the franchise stayed true to that mission up until its unprecedented hiatus. The outbreak of COVID-19 caused all sorts of production delays in Japan which forced the show to go on hiatus, but it will be returning soon. The official announcement was given recently on social media by The Pokemon Company itself. Japan is in the midst of detangling itself from the State of Emergency that ended in late May, and it will celebrate the return of Pokemon Journeys in a matter of days.
Pokemon Journeys: The Series was one of the many anime teased for a primed return as the cast and staff returned to work, and now the official Twitter account behind the series has officially announced that Pokemon Journeys: The Series will be returning from its pandemic hiatus Sunday, June 7th. Meaning, that the anime will be returning next week!
Confirming that with the state of emergency now lifted in Japan, Pokemon Journeys will be broadcasting the latest episode of the series next week. To celebrate the announcement, there's also a cool new illustration of Ash and Goh as well! There are tons of reasons to be excited for June as a Pokemon fan, and now the ball can finally get rolling!
