Pokémon fans get ready to start celebrating next year…well three weeks from now; Pokémon the Series: XY will make its Cartoon Network debut on January 18th at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT. The new series will follow beloved hero Ash Ketchum’s journey to the Kalos region, which is the location of the Pokémon X and Y video game.
However, that’s not all the network has in store. Fans of Mewtwo should be especially pleased for there will be two movies and an animated special which will air earlier in the month, focusing on the Mew clone.
Pokémon: The First Movie will air January 4th at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT. The animated special, Pokémon: Mewtwo – Prologue to Awakening, will air January 11th, also at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT. Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened will immediately follow the special at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT.
