It has been eight years since Pokemon has visited Iris, so a lot has changed since she saw Ash last. She is known as one of the most powerful trainers of her region following her travels with Ash. And of course, our hero is still living the high life with Pikachu. Ash is mentoring Goh while he works with his new team to prepare for a battle with Leon. Now, Ash will have the chance to pit his Dragonite against Iris, so there is no telling who will win.
This new Pokemon Journeys episode is expected to air on April 30, so fans have a while to wait before it goes live. Netflix has yet to update when its next bunch of episodes will come online for fans overseas, but there is a question of whether more will come at all. The last batch of episodes on Netflix was labeled as the final ones for Pokemon Journeys, so the show could be moving. Or more than likely, it seems the anime will be rebranded as a new series for its upcoming episodes.
