Pokémon anime series

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the state of emergency now declared throughout Japan, The Pokémon Company have announced that the broadcast of the latest Pokémon anime series has been halted. Starting this Sunday (April 26th), TV Tokyo will start re-airing previous episodes instead. Unfortunately, we don’t know when the next episode (Episode 23) will air, as it will depend on when the state of emergency is lifted in Japan.
