There has yet to be any word on when international fans will be able to check out Episode 100 of the series for themselves, but you can currently find Pokemon Journeys and Pokemon Master Journeys now streaming with Netflix. The international release is currently up to Episode 75 of the original run in Japan as of January, so it might be a little while before everywhere else hits this mark in particular. Netflix and The Pokemon Company officially describe Pokemon Master Journeys as such: 

"It's a big, big world, but you know where to find Ash and Goh—battling and catching Pokémon from Kanto to Galar! With Pikachu, Cinderace, and their other Pokémon beside them, our heroes continue to travel all over the world to research Pokémon for Cerise Laboratory. Along the way, Ash climbs higher in the World Coronation Series rankings, and Goh adds more Pokémon to his Pokédex in his quest to catch Mew. Meanwhile, Chloe takes her first steps as a Pokémon Trainer when she meets a mysterious Eevee. New friends, returning rivals, and exciting adventures await—as the journey continues!"
