Ash, Pikachu, and their friends have had many amazing adventures, and you’ll soon be able to relive some of their most recent ones in the comfort of your own home thanks to the DVD release of Pokémon the Series: XYZ Volume 1. Covering the first half of the 19th season of Pokémon animation, and picking up where Pokémon the Series: XY Kalos Quest left off, this volume follows Ash’s journey through the Kalos region and the many obstacles he faces there. Along the way, our heroes encounter a variety of new Pokémon and challenges that range from a dream world to a ninja village to a dance party!
They’ll even get a chance to learn more about the powerful phenomenon of Mega Evolution. New friendships are forged when Bonnie discovers a small, unidentifiable Pokémon that she nicknames Squishy. Of course, the troublesome Team Rocket takes an interest in the little green Pokémon, but Ash has even more problems with the arrival of the villainous Team Flare. Just what is the team’s mysterious Operation Z, and why are they so interested in Squishy? Can Ash and friends thwart Team Flare’s ambitions? You’ll have to see for yourself in this exciting DVD set!
