The Pokémon Company has released another trailer for Pokémon Horizons: The Series, and it’s also the first English-dubbed trailer, too.
This anime is the one replacing the long-running Pokémon anime that recently wrapped up after 25 seasons of pocket monster adventures. Horizons features new protagonists, Liko and Roy, who are joined by Friede, the Professor of this series, alongside Captain Pikachu. In this new English-dubbed trailer, we see Liko and her Sprigatito, Roy and his Fuecoco, Friede and Captain Pikachu, and plenty of other Pokémon.

“We are incredibly grateful to the fans who joined us for our first Comic-Con International panel, and it was an absolute joy to connect with members of the Pokémon community who have contributed to making Pokémon animation the success that it is today, while providing a closer look at what’s to come for the series,” said Taito Okiura, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International during a San Diego Comic Con panel. “As we gear up for the upcoming release of ‘Pokémon Horizons: The Series,’ we remain passionate about delivering animated content with captivating stories and lovable characters that appeal to fans across the globe and look forward to sharing more soon.”
Alongside this new trailer, The Pokémon Company also released a new 11-minute sneak peek at Horizons’ first episode:
As you can see, Friede and Captain Pikachu lead a group known as the Rising Volt Tacklers, and they will seemingly be at odds with the antagonistic group known as the Explorers, which includes Amethio and his partner Pokémon Ceruledge. Somebody in the show also has a shiny Rayquaza fighting for them, indicated by its black (instead of green) color.
Elsewhere during the panel, The Pokémon Company also released a new trailer for Pokémon: To Be a Pokémon Master, which is a collection of episodes that will conclude Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series when it launches on Netflix on September 8. These “nostalgic episodes will bring back fan-favorite Pokémon and characters, such as Misty and Brock, while providing a glimpse at what the future may hold for Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu in this final chapter of their 25-season journey,” according to a press release.
