Pokemon's New Season Titled "Pokemon Horizons", Releases New Trailer

The day has finally come Pokemon trainers. Ash Ketchum and Pikachu have left the anime adaptation as its stars. Luckily, fans won't have to wait long before the next season featuring everyone's favorite pocket monsters returns. With new trainers Liko and Roy looking to take up the reins following Ash's exit, it has been revealed that the name of the upcoming series will be Pokemon Horizons. To help in celebrating the reveal, a new trailer has arrived giving fans a more in-depth look at the story featuring the pair of trainers who have some big shoes to fill.

The Pokemon anime has seen Ash and Pikachu take center stage for over two decades, with many believing that the eternal ten-year-old would always be the star of the show. It's clear however that the Pokemon series hasn't been afraid to shake things up and take a big chance with Liko and Roy, as the new trailer not just shows more of their Pokemon in action but also gives anime fans a better idea of their goals in the new season. From the trailer's footage, it's clear that the trainers will have some mysterious items that help them move forward in their journey.
