The Pokemon franchise keeps on adding new anime as they release more games. These animes feature Ash’s (Satoshi in Japan) adventures in new regions with new pokémons in his pursuit to become the Pokémon Master.
Pokemon Journeys is an anime that joined the franchise in 2020 but takes a different approach to showcase Ash’s new adventure.
The anime features Ash as a research assistant under Professor Cerise. He travels all eight regions of the Pokémon Franchise with Goh to learn the mysteries of all Pokémon.
Pokemon anime’s official Twitter account announced yesterday that Marina Inoue had been cast to portray a young researcher named Sonia in the ongoing anime Pokemon Journeys. Sonia will appear in the episode slated to be broadcasted on July 5.

She also appeared in the Pokemon: Twilight Wings net anime, but was voiced by Lynn in that version.
The July 5 episode will feature Sonia visiting a stadium, investigating a well-known artefact in Galar.
Ash and Goh are also at the stadium to observe the battle between the reigning champion Dande with his Charizard and the challenger Raihan with his Duraludon. Farfetch’d will also return in this episode.
The series returned from its COVID-19 induced break in early June with its 23rd episode titled A Massive Panic! Sakuragi Park!!”
Pokemon, first released in 1996, is set up in a world where humans catch monsters and store them in pocket-sized poke-balls, thus the name Pocket Monsters or Pokemon.
They are creatures with an affinity to certain elements and some superhuman abilities related to that particular element. Revolving around a teenage boy Ash Ketchum, it takes us through his journey to becoming the most accomplished Pokemon trainer the world has ever seen.
