Pokémon Horizons’ Netflix Release Pushed Back to March for North America

The North American premiere of the new Pokémon anime, Pokémon Horizons: The Series, has been delayed by a few weeks and is now set to debut on Netflix on March 7th.

The first series since Ash Ketchum’s departure, Horizons, was initially scheduled to be released on the streaming service on February 23.

Stepping into the shoes of the beloved cap-wearing protagonist (and Pikachu, naturally) are Liko and Roy, a dynamic duo set to embark on thrilling adventures in the Paldea region of Scarlet and Violet.


Pokémon Horizons made its debut on BBC iPlayer in December 2023 and is currently available for streaming in the UK. If you’re curious about what’s in store, you can also watch the first 11 minutes of the series on The Pokémon Company’s YouTube channel.
