The first episode of Pokémon Horizons, the brand-new anime series replacing the original Ash and Pikachu-led show, has recently aired in Japan.

Fans were excited to see the appearance of a never-before-seen Pokémon in one scene featuring Liko and Sprigatito.

The small turtle-like creature appears to be partially made of diamonds or crystals, sparking curiosity among viewers.

This new Pokémon is reminiscent of Ash’s encounter with Ho-Oh in the original anime series. 

Speculations have emerged regarding whether this turtle Pokémon might be a pre-evolution of Terapagos, the Legendary Pokémon set to be introduced in The Indigo Disk, part 2 of the DLC The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

More information is expected to be revealed with the release of The Indigo Disk in Winter 2023.

Upcoming DLC Expands Pokémon Universe

In the meantime, fans can look forward to the first part of the DLC, The Teal Mask, releasing in Fall 2023.

This DLC will take trainers on a school trip to the land of Kitakami, where a great mountain towers over the people living at its base.

The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero and other events will add more than 230 Pokémon not found in Scarlet and Violet, keeping fans engaged and excited.

Professor Friede: The Adventurous Pokémon Professor

The rebooted anime series Pokémon Horizons also introduced a new character in the form of Professor Friede, who is already proving to be a daring adventurer unlike previous Pokémon Professors.

In the premiere, Professor Friede and his Charizard engage in the first real battle of the series, saving Liko from a dangerous situation.

Professor Friede’s proactiveness and willingness to get his hands dirty set him apart from his predecessors.

Based out of an airship, he is the embodiment of adventure and is expected to play a significant role in the series, much more than Professor Oak did in the original show.

Pokémon Horizons Builds an Exciting Cast

With dual protagonists Liko and Roy, as well as characters like Friede and Captain Pikachu, Pokémon Horizons promises an exciting and fresh take on the beloved Pokémon world.

Fans can look forward to discovering more about the mysterious new turtle Pokémon, exploring the expanded universe through the upcoming DLC, and watching the daring Professor Friede in action as the series unfolds.
