The upcoming Pokémon Sun & Moon 3DS games are inspiring a new anime-tie in series set to air in Japan in November. The surprising yet welcome news will see the return of Ash and take place in the Alola region where he will meet Kapu Kokeko (guardian deity) and be given a Z-Ring. It will feature new Pokémon and will see Ash go to school and follow his school activities as he aims to graduate.
The new anime is set to be released in November, and the games are to debut in Japan and North America on the 18th November before hitting Europe on the 23rd November. As yet there is no Western release date for the anime but considering the popularity of the franchise I believe a simulcast will more than likely be announced for the series if not a Western release date soon after.
