Pokémon fans in the Philippines, rejoice! The eighteenth season, dubbed as ‘Pokémon XY: Kalos Quest’ will continue the adventures of Ash Ketchum and his trusted friend Pikachu, as well as his travelling companions Lumiose Gym Leader Clemont and his little sister Bonnie, as well as Serena, who once met Ash on a summer camp in Pallet Town when they were younger, and face new challenges across Kalos Region, which is inspired by France. In this season, Ash will challenge more gyms, including Clemont’s, and Serena will pursue her dream to become a Pokémon Performer and the next Kalos Queen.

As for the fate of the Pokémon franchise on GMA Network, the said network concluded the run of ‘Pokémon Black and White’ earlier this month and GMA has not released any plans to air seasons 15, 16 and 18. The said anime is now occupied by the fast-popular anime series ‘Yo-Kai Watch’.

Catch new episodes of ‘Pokémon XY: Kalos Quest’ starting Monday, 6:45pm on Cartoon Network Philippines. Cartoon Network Philippines is available on most cable providers nationwide.
