When it launches the morning of February 12th, Pokemon Black & White will debut as the 14th season of the Pocket Monsters franchise. We know Ash and Pikachu will be there, but what else can we expect from Cartoon Network’s new Saturday Morning series? Well, despite the fact that his quest to become a Pokemon Master has taken over a decade, Ash appears to be younger than ever, with larger eyes and a hipper outfit. Maybe this is something Brock and others disapproved of, as Ash Ketchum’s explorations through the Unova Region are now joined by Iris (who wields the Dragon Pokemon Axew) and Cilan (a Gym Leader with a Grass-type monkey Pokemon Pansage). Typical battles are sure to follow with Team Rocket’s Jessie, James, and Meowth — in title-appropriate black clothes — giving the heroes a fair amount of trouble. But we’ll wait and see along with you tomorrow morning!!
Ash has arrived in the Unova region, along with Pikachu, his mom, and Professor Oak. Their new adventures get off to a rocky start when Pikachu gets hit by a bolt of lightning from a freak storm! With aid from Professor Juniper, Unova’s preeminent scientist, Pikachu apparently recovers fully. But something is amiss when Pikachu enters battle against a new foe and his fascinating Pokémon…
