Pokemon is finally getting a dedicated Netflix series: Pokemon Ultimate Journeys will land on the streaming service to kick off a whole new Pokemon adventure on October 21.

Pokemon Ultimate Journeys will pick up, where Pokemon Master Journeys ends: Episode 91 will be the first episode of the new series, marking the 25th season of Pokemon. God... damn... has it really been 25 years already? That's wild, because Pokemon makes me both nostalgic and depressed in equal measures: A constant reminder that time does not stand still - not even for Pokemon fans.

Here's what you can expect from the 25th Pokemon season:

In this season, the Pokemon World Coronation Series is heating up! Ash, Pikachu, and their Pokemon friends are preparing for the competition with intensive training. Meanwhile, Goh is in the midst of a series of challenging trial missions to become a member of Project Mew. Chloe and Eevee are busy as well, learning about the different evolutionary paths that Eevee can take. Will they be able to come to a decision about the future of her beloved Pokémon partner? Get ready for nonstop action, familiar faces from journeys past, and plenty of Pokemon discoveries!
