What happened in Pokémon Horizons Episode #23?
Episode #23 of Pokémon Horizons revealed that Friede had narrowly escaped the collapsing tunnel and the group had regrouped at the local Pokémon Center. They decide to go back and try to deal with the Galarian Moltres, which Dot is able to identify, as it is holding one of the Ancient Poké Balls. Moltres is still very aggressive, so Riko faces an uphill battle trying to convince it that they mean no harm. Riko’s pendant once again transforms into the mysterious turtle Pokémon, showing Moltres a vision of the ancient explorer Lucius, who mentioned something called “Rakua”. That, combined with the Ancient Pokémon Arboliva, finally convinced it to return to the Poké Ball – leaving Riko in possession of a Legendary Pokémon.

With the pendant now, seemingly permanently, taking the form of the crystal turtle Pokémon, it’s more important than ever for the team to find out exactly what this thing is and all it’s capable of. Hopefully they don’t lead Amethio and the Adventurers to meet Liko’s grandmother on the way…
The prospect of finally knowing something about this mysterious Pokémon, which has reappeared in the series since the second volume, is an exciting one for fans, as even its name is now is still unknown.

Pokémon Horizon now has its first chance to be the face of a new Pokémon, and hopefully it’ll bring some insight into the mystery it’s been building up to now.
