Pokémon XY Anime Debuts January 18

Ash is still around and so is his Pikachu, but they’re on a new journey to explore the Kalos region. To celebrate the occasion, Cartoon Network will be airing Pokémon movies on the weekends prior to the XY début. The classic film starring Mewtwo, Pokémon: The First Movie– will play on the 4th. The next weekend Mewtwo is back in the animated special, Pokémon: Mewtwo– Prologue to Awakening followed by the latest film in the franchise. There have not been many opportunities to watch Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened. Finally, on January 18, Ash along with some new friends as well as old ones will embark on an adventure throughout a new region encountering many exciting Pokémon. Ring in the new year Pokémon style and it’s sure to be a fun 2014.
