Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon is the twentieth season of the dubbed version of the Pokémon anime. It follows the conclusion of the third and final dubbed season of the XY series, Pokémon the Series: XYZ, and as such is the first dubbed season of the Sun & Moon series. The season follows Ash as he continues his journey, attending the Pokémon School in the Alola region.

In the United States, it debuted with a special showing of its first two episodes on December 5, 2016 on Disney XD alongside Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. In the United Kingdom, it debuted on November 20, 2016 on CITV. The full season will air in the United States in 2017.


What starts as a summer vacation in the tropical Alola region turns into the next exciting chapter in Ash Ketchum’s quest to become a Pokémon Master! There’s plenty for Ash and Pikachu to explore in this sunny new region, with exciting new Pokémon to discover and interesting people to learn from along the way—including the cool Professor Kukui and the fun-loving Samson Oak. More new faces will help guide Ash’s Alolan adventure, in the form of a group of skilled Trainers—Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, and Sophocles—and a mysterious research assistant called Lillie. Frequent foes Team Rocket have also made the trip to Alola, looking to swipe some high-powered new Pokémon. But they have some heavy competition on the villainy front: the ruffians of Team Skull, who delight in causing chaos and may have more sinister intentions…
