The anime is being directed by Saori Den (Mirage Queen Prefers Circus), and the creative director is Daiki Tomiyasu (Pokémon Sun & Moon, Pocket Monster Mezase Pokémon Master). The series scripts are being overseen by Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Wolf's Rain, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop). Action director Tetsuo Yajima, character designer Rei Yamazaki, and sub-character designer Kyoko Ito are all involved. Conisch is writing the music, and Masafumi Mima is in charge of the sound.

A one-hour first-episode special will mark the anime's April 14 debut. At 6:55 p.m. on Fridays, the program will air.

The anime will debut in 2023 "and beyond," according to a prior English press release from The Pokémon Company. Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly from the video games Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will all appear in the anime, as well as the legendary Pokémon Rayquaza in Shiny form. Alongside the main protagonists Liko and Roy, Friede and Captain Pikachu—a Pokémon professor and his Pokémon partner—will also appear in the anime.

Two days after the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games were made available worldwide in November 2019, Pokémon Journeys: The Series made its Japanese television debut on TV Tokyo and its affiliates under the title Pocket Monster.

In the United States, Netflix released the first 12 episodes of Pokémon Journeys: The Series in June 2020, and fresh episodes were released on a quarterly basis after that. In May 2020, Teletoon, a Canadian television network, also debuted the anime.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series, the anime's localized title, features 48 episodes. The 49th episode of Pocket Monster continued Pokémon: Master Journeys: The Series, which had its Japanese premiere in December 2020. The 25th season of the Pokémon anime, Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series, debuted on Netflix on October 21.

The final collection of 11 special episodes for Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series, Pocket Monster Mezase Pokémon Master (Aiming to be a Pokémon Master), debuted on January 13 in Japan. Ash and Pikachu's "last chapter" is the series.
