It seems Pokémon's 25th anniversary celebrations haven't ended just yet - with the animated series Pokémon Journeys announcing it will be airing a one-hour special in Japan on April 1st. This will line up with 25 years of the anime series, which originally debuted on the same date in 1997.

This special will be comprised of two brand new episodes. The first one titled "Ash & Clemont! Special Friendship Training" sees Ash travel to Lumiose City to battle in the World Coronation Series. Here he reunites with his X and Y companions, Clemont and Bonnie, but something goes wrong with Sirfetch'd.

In the second episode of this mini-arc "Ultra Class! VS Elite Four Drasna!", Ash takes on the Elite Four member Drasna in the same tournament. This will be followed by a third episode, which will apparently air on 8th April. It's titled "A New Show! The Team Rocket Undercover Kingdom Radio!!".
