The Pokemon Journeys Part 6 release date on Netflix is scheduled for December 2021.

It’s possible that Pokemon Journeys Episodes 61 through 72 will be officially labeled as Netflix’s Pokemon Master Journeys Part 2.

The official website said in March 2021 that Part 4 was the “final” collection of Pokemon Journeys: The Series episodes that would release on Netflix.

Therefore, Pokemon Journeys Part 4 was the ending of Pokemon Season 23 since the 2021 Pokemon Master Journeys anime is the official title for Pokemon Season 24, which came out in Summer 2021.

As Netflix users know, the streaming giant likes to set up audiences for binge-watching rather than releasing episodes weekly. That means Pokemon Journeys will be split up into multiple seasons or parts.

Rather than releasing a Part 5, the Pokemon Master Journeys Netflix release date is on September 10, 2021. The initial release of Netflix’s Pokemon Master Journeys will include 12 episodes.

The question is, where does Pokemon Master Journeys Episode 1 start? Monsters and Critics reached out to Netflix for clarification on this issue. Based on the email correspondence, it’s officially confirmed that Season 23 is ending with Episode 48, so Pokemon Master Journeys Part 1 will include Pokemon Journeys Episodes 49 through 60.

More Pokemon Master Journeys episodes will release on Netflix “approximately every three months for the duration of the season” according to the official website. A press release words it differently, stating that the “initial release of 12 episodes [will be] followed by quarterly releases on Netflix for the duration of the season.”

Since Part 5 (Pokemon Master Journeys) is coming out in September 2021, the Pokemon Journeys Part 6 release date will be scheduled for December 2021. Pokemon Master Journeys Part 2 will include Pokemon Journeys Episodes 61 through 72.

The Pokemon English dub cast returned for the Pokemon Journeys English dub and several new voice actors.

The Pokemon Journeys: The Series release date in Japan initially took place on November 17, 2019. Except for seven weeks of delays in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, new episodes have been regularly released every week.

The finale for Part 5, Pokemon Journeys Episode 60, was released in Japan on March 19, 2021, while the Pokemon Journeys Episode 75 release date in Japan is confirmed for July 30, 2021. Therefore, that’s why the Pokemon Season 24 release date in Japan was considered to be in Summer 2021.

In the first 24 episodes of Pokémon Journeys: The Series, Ash, and Goh become research assistants at the Cerise Laboratory in Vermilion City and find themselves traveling the Pokemon world studying and training Pokemon.

The two discover the wonders of Gigantamax Pokemon, explore Galar’s Wild Area, and even find some common ground with Team Rocket. And while Ash continues his journey to become a Pokemon Master, Goh catches his first Pokemon and discovers that Pokemon battles can be fun.

Episodes 25 through 36 had Ash returning to the Kalos Region with Goh to compete in the Battle Festival. Goh witnessed Mega-Evolution for the first time. They also traveled to the Galar Region to see a World Coronation Series Match.

The biggest development was that Pikachu became jealous of Ash focusing on training Riolu and ran away! Obviously, Ash’s bond with Pikachu is restored and strengthened, and Goh desires a Pikachu of his own.

Pikachu even refuses a Thunder Stone so he can evolve into a Raichu!

At the beginning of Part 4, Ash had been suffering from a serious losing streak, and his confidence was down in the dumps. But Ash was cheered up when his journey took him back to Alola, and his friends threw a party for him.

Their journey took them to many new exciting locations, with a long Sword and Shield story arc being a highlight. But the climax was when the legendary Clone Pokemon Mewtwo showed up and battled Ash and Goh! Team Rocket even tried swapping out Pikachu with their mecha version.

In Pokemon Journeys Part 5: Episode 49, Team Rocket infiltrated a school disguised as students. Team Rocket’s antics get even zanier later on since they bring in a… vending machine? Then a giant Gulpin ball goes on a rampage in the city.

Audiences were introduced to all sorts of varying Pokemon. Ash, Go, and Chloe traveled to the Galar region to research the Galar Fossils. One of the highlights was Episode 53, when they encountered the legendary water Pokemon Suicune!

Pokemon Journeys Part 6 will pick up the story again with Ash having reached the 184th position in the World Coronation Series after Ash and Farfetch’d defeated Rinto and Gallade in an official match. With this victory in hand, Ash and Goh will find themselves taking on… broken plumbing?

Here is the plot summary for Pokemon Journeys Episode 61: Leave Everything To Us! The Plusle and Minun Handymen!!!

The siblings of the “PluMi Handymen”, Divi and Mulpi, have come to repair the water pipes at the Cerise Laboratory. With their mascot Pokémon Plusle and Minun cheering them on as well, they completely fixed the issue with the pipes! …or at least Ash and Goh thought so they end up having to help with the duo’s work, filling in for Divi. Meanwhile, it seems Minun is angry at Mulpli because of the injury…?

Here’s a review of Pokemon Journeys Episode 61:

Another highlight of Pokemon Master Journeys Part 2 is in Pokemon Journeys Episode 64 when it’s suspected that the Disaster Pokemon Absol is causing a hot spring to run dry. In Pokemon Journeys Episode 65, Ash receives an invitation from Iris for a dragon battle!

This article provides everything that is known about Pokemon Journeys Part 6 (Netflix’s Pokemon Master Journeys Part 2) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

Pokemon Journeys: How many episodes are left?

As previously noted, Netflix confirmed that Pokemon Journeys Episode 48 was the ending of the previous season. Each new Pokemon season tends to have around 50 episodes. For example, Pokemon XYZ had 47 episodes, while Pokemon Season 22 had 54 episodes.

Pokemon Generation 8 is highly unusual in the way it transitioned between seasons. The first part, Pokemon Journeys, had 48 episodes. The second part, Pokemon Master Journeys, will have “approximately 42 episodes” in total.

That means this newest generation of anime episodes will have at least 90 episodes in total between the two parts.

Pokemon 2022 on Netflix U.S. likely to be Pokemon Master Journeys Part 3?

By the time Pokemon Journeys Part 4 was streaming on Netflix in the U.S., Part 6 in the overall Pokemon Journeys anime TV series had started airing on TV in Japan.

It’s currently uncertain whether Netflix’s Pokemon Master Journeys anime will restart the episode count as part of Generation 8. As in, it’s possible the TV show’s continuation could simply be listed as Pokemon Journeys Episode 49 through 60.

Based on history, the title for Pokemon Journeys 2021 was extended to Pokemon Master Journeys to include the new focus for the time frame. This fits the pattern since the three seasons of Generation 7, Pokemon: Sun and Moon, were extended with the subtitles “Ultra Adventures” and “Ultra Legends.”

Although Part 4 was listed on the official Pokemon website as the “final” season on the Netflix streaming platform, Netflix was not going to give up exclusive rights to international streaming for such a popular brand name. Assuming Part 6 finishes off Episode 72, that means Pokemon Master Journeys Part 3 will continue the story on Netflix in 2022.

Based on the previously announced release schedule, the Pokemon Master Journeys Part 3 release date on Netflix U.S. will be in March 2022, the final month of the Winter 2022 anime TV season.

Pokemon Master Journeys ending in 2022?

Based on the release schedule, Pokemon Journeys Part 7 (Pokemon Master Journeys Part 3) would release episodes 73 through 84.

Assuming that Pokemon Journeys Episode 90 (Pokemon Master Journeys Episode 42) contains the ending, it’s possible the last several episodes could be bundled with Part 7. Or, it’s possible Pokemon Journeys Part 8 (Pokemon Master Journeys Part 4) will release episodes 85 through 90 in June 2022.

Either way, Pokemon Master Journeys should be finished before the ending of 2022. That means we’ll just have to wait until details about Pokemon Season 25 are released.

Stay tuned!
