The Pokémon Company and Netflix announced that upcoming seasons of Pokémon Journeys: The Series will debut exclusively on its platform in the United States. The plot is set to focus on Ash and his partner Pikachu as “they embark on adventures across multiple regions in the Pokémon world, meeting new characters and discovering more Pokémon along the way,” according to the press release.

The official plot synopsis states:

“Pokémon Trainer Ash Ketchum has a new plan: see the world! But first, he and his partner Pikachu are headed to the opening of the Cerise Laboratory, a research facility dedicated to uncovering the mysteries of Pokémon in every region. Ash meets Goh, another boy with boundless curiosity about Pokémon, and both are overjoyed when Professor Cerise asks them to become official research fellows. With Ash as determined as ever to become a Pokémon Master, and Goh aiming to catch one of every Pokémon (including the Mythical Mew), our heroes are in for adventure and excitement as they explore the wide world of Pokémon!”

This is the next step in the growing partnership between Pokémon and Netflix, following the recent U.S. premiere of Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution. Pokémon Journeys is set to premiere on Netflix on June 12, which will launch the first 12 episodes of the new 23rd season of the series. Additional episodes will then be added quarterly on Netflix for the duration of the season.
