The Pokémon Company announced today that a new content series, Pokemon: The Arceus Chronicles, will debut on Aug. 19 at the Pokémon World Championships in London. The series will then be released after the festivities, on Netflix for the entire world to see.

The series concerns Ash, Pikachu, and friends as they journey to the land of Sinnoh, coming to the aide of legendary Pokémon Arceus. Apparently, the familiar heroes meet up with goated Pewter City Trainer and Pokemon O.G. Brock on their mission to stamp out what's left of Team Galactic.

At first glance, this newest installment in Pokémon lore looks to bridge the gap from old-school Pokémon cartoons to more recent gaming installments such as Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which was released on Nintendo Switch in January 2022.
