The Pokémon Company shared the news this weekend, confirming that the first new mainline show in more than 25 years will now premiere in the US via Netflix on March 7 – a few weeks later than originally planned.
“The Series will now premiere on March 7th on Netflix, just a short time later than previously announced,” TPC wrote.
“We know fans around the world are looking forward to local debuts of the highly-anticipated, new animated Pokémon series – and it’s almost here! Get ready for adventure with Liko, Sprigatito and friends in the world of Pokémon!”
Starring dual protagonists Liko and Roy, and their respective partner Pokémon, Sprigatito and Fuecoco, the Horizons series takes place in the Paldea region, which is the same setting as Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Following the conclusion of Ash Ketchum’s story, Pokémon Horizons is the first new mainline animated Pokémon series released in more than 25 years.
VGC’s Pokemon Horizons review called it the “reinvention the Pokémon anime desperately needed”.
