Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon Western Release Date Announced

In the series' 20th season, Ash and Pikachu go to Alola. We've finally found out when this adventure will be coming to the West.

Today, news came from the official Pokémon twitter feed that Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon will be coming to the U.S. on Disney XD next month.

The first two episodes of the new series will air on Friday, May 12 at 9 pm ET, followed by the third episode, which will air on Saturday, May 13 at 9 am. Following the third episode’s airing, the series’ schedule will stick to a weekly release on Saturdays at 9 am.

In the series’ 20th season, Ash Ketchum and Pikachu will venture to Alola in pursuit of Ash’s ultimate goal in becoming a Pokémon Master. They will explore the new region, discovering new Pokémon and meeting new people, including Professor Kukui and Samson Oak. However, it seems that they’ve also been followed by some old foes, as Team Rocket has also made the journey to the Alola region. They might even have a little competition on this turf, as the area is dominated by the villainous Team Skull as well.
