The next season of the Pokémon anime is taking a break from the typical formula to explore the entire Pokémon world, rather than just the Galar region. As a result there’s expected to be a lot of variety in the adventures Ash and his new companion Gou get up to, and to match that some new artwork from various illustrators has been released for most of the first nine episodes. Check them out below, courtesy of Siliconera.
