Join Ash, Pikachu and all of their friends as they prepare for the Unova League and then even more adventures through the Unova region. Recently: After battling with Reshiram, Ash and his friends were able to free it from Team Plasma's control. Team Plasma was arrested and N decided to travel with Anthea and Concordia. Ash and his friends decide to leave for the Kanto region and begin their travels through the Decolore Islands. Ash and his friends run into Professor Oak and he captures a Rotom for his research. Last Time: "Capaci Island UFO!" Continuing on their journey, Ash and his friends come across what appears to be an Amulet Coin among what looks to be a broken flying saucer. As soon as they pick it up, a group of Beheeyem appear and affect the nearby town with a condition. Only Ash and Team Rocket are unaffected. Can Ash and Team Rocket put their differences aside to help save everyone? This Time: "The Journalist From Another Region!" Saturday, October, 12th, 8:30am Eastern Encore: Sunday, October, 20th, 8:30am Eastern As they continue on with their journey, Ash and his friends meet with a journalist from the faraway Kalos region, as well as a couple of new Pokemon they've never seen before. She invites them to the Decolore Islandsâ€™ Grand Harvest Festival where Ash and Pignite decide to join in the Pokemon Sumo competition. Will Ash and Pignite win this competition? Notes: The 16th season of Pokemon is here to finish promoting the fifth generation. Pokemon X and Y are released today! A distribution for a special Torchic will start on October 12th. A new series called Pocket Monsters XY will air on October 17th in Japan and Ash will, of course, still be the main lead. Serena, Clemont and Bonnie are also confirmed to be cast members in the new XY series. Cartoon Network will air Genesect and the Legend Awaken on October 19th. Right after the movie, they will air the first two episodes of Pokemon XY as a sneak peek. Pokemon The Origin will be dubbed as Pokemon Origins and be released on Pokemon.com starting on November 15th. Re-runs of Pokemon BW Rival Destinies are now on weekdays at 8:00am with premier episodes now starting at 8:30am. Please stay on topic when discussing the episode and do not focus on any kind of edits. Please don't discuss the new video games, the new series or the dub for the new XY series here. Take those discussions to the Video Game and Anime sections respectively. Please avoid using spoilers, including vague ones, in these talkbacks. Thank you. Also, with the sneak peek of XY airing in two weeks, should I make two episode talkback threads, or just one special event thread and save the episode talkbacks for when the series premieres proper? I'd appreciate any feedback on this matter.
