In a world filled with strange yet majestic creatures known as Pokémon, a new adventure begins! Hailing from the pristine region of Paldea, the timid Liko travels to the Kanto region to attend the Indigo Academy and become a Pokémon trainer—a person who forms relationships with Pokémon and trains them to participate in battles. Soon, Liko acquires Nyahoja, a fickle Grass-type cat Pokémon, as her first partner.

Prior to Liko's transfer to Kanto, her grandmother gives her a uniquely patterned and gleaming pendant as a protective charm. However, an enigmatic organization—The Explorers—seems to know a secret about the pendant and nearly succeeds in stealing it from Liko. Fortunately, she is rescued by the Rising Volt Tacklers, a group of adventurers led by a Lizardon-riding trainer named Friede.

After a series of encounters with The Explorers, Liko decides to join Friede's team, accompanying him and his crew members on a grand journey across the regions. Along the way, they aim to unravel not only the mysteries of the world of Pokémon, but also the power that resides within her pendant.

Preliminary (4/? eps)
Going into this. There was a bit of worry, bit of unsure about the whole thing. As lets face it. With the journey, and the length Ash has been on. You wouldn't think there would come a time, where someone else was front row,and was the main character instead of him. It had a lot of big shoes to fill from the get go. Mainly because of thatalone. Not that it needs to fill a large check sheet, in order to stand side by side with Ash's journey, but more with how times have changed, and how Pokemon is now. How it'd all be handled.

It's ...

Pokémon Horizons stands out as an impressive series. It boasts beautiful visuals and characters that are easy to relate to, with Liko, a shy girl, holding great promise. The show takes a more mature tone and introduces a range of adult characters.

For those who miss Ash and Pikachu, I recommend giving this series a chance without constant comparisons. In the first season, there's a clear promise of further character development. If you have an affinity for video games, this show might just be your cup of tea.

I admit I had reservations initially regarding the new main character. However, after watching the first three episodes, I ...

Preliminary (5/? eps)
Here's a unique review, coming from someone who genuinely doesn't care who the protag is. Ash was cookie cutter and the fact he got to star in like 20+ seasons is beyond me. It's a show about magical monsters, how did they manage to make it revolve around 1 person?!

So that's where I'm left with this. I went in thinking, "Oh nice! They're finally going to change the story formula and make use of the franchise" "We're finally going to get something like Scarlet Wings or Origins, fleshing out the world itself!"

And that's why I stopped watching, I got my hopes up.

It's just female ash, ...
