Pokemon Journeys This anime series is based on the events of all the core series games, including the Generation VIII games Pokémon Sword and Shield. It follows Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon.

The series features “double protagonists” Ash Ketchum and Goh, along with their respective partners Pikachu and Cinderace.
Pokemon Journeys Similar to Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon, Ash is based in a single location, alongside Goh, and together they travel around the world, specifically all regions that have appeared in the core series (from Kanto to Galar), and meet Pokémon living in each region while pursuing their respective goals.

Goh, having had a fateful encounter with Mew when he was six, dreams of one day catching the Mythical Pokémon, and is currently filling his Pokédex and participating in the Project Mew research project in the hopes that they will get him closer to his dream. The series also features as supporting characters a young girl named Chloe, and her father Professor Cerise, who runs the Cerise Laboratory in Vermilion City.
