On November 25, get ready for a blast of nostalgia! In an upcoming pair of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon episodes, Ash, Pikachu, and their friends at the Pokémon School in Alola gear up for a field trip. Their destination? Ash’s home region of Kanto! It’s a welcome blast from the past as we see Ash reunite with Professor Oak, his mother, and some of his past Pokémon friends. His old traveling companions, Misty and Brock, show up as special guests. Of course, Team Rocket is there to cause trouble for the Twerps, too.
Kiawe, Lillie, and the others have never been to Kanto before, so it’s fun to see their reactions as they encounter Pokémon that, while familiar to you, are new to them! Can a Marowak from Kanto become friends with an Alolan Marowak? Just how short will Exeggutor feel next to its Alolan counterpart? The answers to these questions and more will be revealed when “Alola, Kanto!” airs on Disney XD on November 25 at 9:30 a.m. The follow-up episode “When Regions Collide!” airs the next Saturday, December 2.
Remember that in addition to the new episodes on Saturday mornings, you can tune in to Disney XD throughout the week to catch earlier episodes. You can also watch even more awesome Pokémon animation on Pokemon.com and the Pokémon TV mobile app!
