When will Pokémon Horizons Episodes be released?
For now, new episodes of Pokémon Horizons aren’t easy to watch outside of Japan. Premiere episodes take place at 6:55 p.m. JST on Friday, which equates to 5:55 a.m. on the US East Coast and 2:55 a.m. on the West Coast. Besides the problem of inconvenient timing, the series was broadcast on TVTokyo, a channel that few Western audiences have easy access to.

Pokémon Horizons Episode 13 Meet a Potential New Friend
Episode 13 of Pokémon Horizons will focus on the airship preparing to set off for the Galar region, although there are clearly some technical issues preventing the launch from going smoothly. The preview of the episode also shows Roy confronting Wattrel, an Electric/Flying-type Pokémon that originated in Paldea. Wattrel is also known to be mentioned in the title of episode 14, suggesting this could be Roy’s first Pokémon catch since receiving the starter. A clip from the episode also introduces Friede Terastallizing one of his Pokémon, as well as the appearance of another Paldean gym leader, Iono.
The Galar region will be the third region introduced in Horizons, after Kanto and Paldea, and represents all kinds of opportunities for the series as a whole and for Riko and Roy in particular. Pokémon Horizon is taking on an interesting tactic by frequently jumping from region to region, but it still uses an arc-based structure, which makes more sense than Journeys’ cross-world adventures often do.
