The XY series (Japanese: ポケットモンスターXY(エックスワイ) Pocket Monsters XY) is the fifth series of the Pokémon anime, following after the Best Wishes series, and based on the events of the Generation VI games. It premiered on October 17, 2013 in Japan, and will premiere on January 18, 2014 in the United States, though the first two episodes were aired as a preview in the United States on October 19, 2013.

As with the previous three series, the XY series began with only Ash Ketchum, headed off to a new region with his Pikachu while wearing a new set of clothes. His previous companions, Iris and Cilan, left the series. Joining him this time are Serena, a new Trainer who previously met Ash in her childhood; Clemont, an aspiring inventor and scientist who is also the Gym Leader of the Lumiose Gym; and Bonnie, Clemont's younger sister.

It is currently unknown how many seasons the series will be divided into for audiences outside of Japan.
