Pokémon the Series: Sun and Moon to Air on May 12

Pokémon fans love collecting the cards, playing the games and watching the anime. Since Pokémon Sun and Moon has been available since November and trading cards came out in February, there is only one left! The anime adventures continue in Sun and Moon starting May 12.

Ash and Pikachu begin a new journey in the Alola region discovering brand new species of Pokémon and making friends while attending school. It is quite a different approach in terms of storyline and art style for the Pokémon series but one that is sure to captivate audiences.

The first two episodes will air on Disney XD on Friday, May 12 before returning to its normal Saturday slot the day after with another new episode. Then, catch Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel later in the day. Watching all of these will get you started on all sorts of wonderful memories in Alola.
