Pokémon: To Be A Pokémon Master is now available on Netflix in the US.
This mini-series is unique compared to the previous main series, Pokémon Journey, for two main reasons. First, the mini-series only had 12 episodes. Second, the focus of the mini-series is to introduce Ash Ketchum in his “ultimate adventure”. After 25 years of trying to become a “Pokemon Master” in a real-world setting, the show will try to answer what that means for Ash and how he moves on to the next part of his journey, no matter what. what that could be. These episodes have already been released in Japan (as Pokémon: Aim to Be a Pokémon Master), so viewers who don’t want spoilers should be careful what they look for about this mini-series.
