Our heroes have many exciting new Pokémon to discover and interesting people to learn from along the way. More new faces will help guide Ash’s latest journeys – but frequent foes Team Rocket have also made the trip to Alola, looking to swipe some high-powered new Pokémon. They’ll have competition from the ruffians of Team Skull, who delight in causing chaos and may have more sinister intentions.
