To help boost interest in the series, which now has some episodes available on Netflix, a sample has been released. Folks can now catch Pokemon Journeys episode 1 on YouTube.
This episode of the Pokemon anime starts off at the very beginning. It essentially acts as a prequel, as we start by meeting Pikachu as a Pichu. As for the humans, Goh and Professor Cerise’s daughter, Chloe, attend a Pokemon camp hosted by Professor Oak.

As a reminder, the Netflix schedule for Pokemon Journeys is a bit odd. It started with the first 12 episodes. Episodes 13-24 will be added in September 2020.
While Pokemon Journeys is still running, it is an adaptation that’s covering content from multiple games in the series. For example, Pokemon Sword and Shield characters will eventually appear.
Also, if you’re looking for additional Pokemon anime adaptations to watch, the web-exclusive Pokemon: Twilight Wings series has almost ended its seven episode run. The sixth episode launched in July 2020 and featured the ghost-type gym leader Allister.
Pokemon Journeys is now streaming on Netflix.
