A new Pokémon anime inspired by Pokémon Legends Arceus is coming to Netflix next month.
Announced today, Pokémon: The Arceus Chronicles will debut on Netflix next month on September 23. However, if you happen to be at the 2022 Pokémon World Championships in London on August 19, you can catch a sneak peek of the debut episode in a special live screening.
The race to save Sinnoh has begun in Pokémon: The Arceus Chronicles! Join Ash and his friends as they work to take down the remnants of Team Galactic! Catch the English premiere on 8/19 at #PokemonWorlds or tune in on 9/23 to stream on @NetflixFamily! 🪐 https://t.co/3KEQBFE6cq pic .twitter.com/lm9N2Vmu83August 9, 2022
The Arceus Chronicles sees Ash, Pikachu, Goh, and Dawn venturing to the Sinnoh region, where Pokemon Legends Arceus players will know the last main game took place. This time, we are once again coming into contact with the Legendary Arceus, when the company receives a mysterious message from the imposing creature.
Once again, Team Galactic returns to the fold in the new anime show on Netflix. You’ll no doubt remember the nefarious organization if you played Pokémon Legends Arceus, as one of the most annoying groups that pick on the player character and their allies throughout the Pokémon games.
This is far from the first Pokémon anime series based on a main game, and it’s not even the first anime series based on Pokémon Legends Arceus. In early May of this year, Hisuian Snow debuted on YouTube, telling the story of newcomer protagonist Alec in three special episodes. This time, the new anime series skips the YouTube release and comes exclusively to Netflix for viewers around the world.
