Pokemon the Series travels to Kalos in January on Cartoon Network

Pokemon the Series: XY will make its Cartoon Network debut on January 18, 8:30 a.m. ET/PT, following two movies and an animated special which will air earlier in the month. The new series will follow longtime hero Ash Ketchum's travels to the Kalos region, which is where Pokemon X / Y take place. Poke-fans of Mewtwo (who is the best pokemon anyway, no Billy you can't trade me your Ekans for him) should be especially pleased, as the two movies and special episode focus on the imperfect Mew clone.

Pokemon: The First Movie will air January 4 at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT. The animated special, Pokemon: Mewtwo - Prologue to Awakening, will air January 11, also at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT. Pokemon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened will immediately follow the special at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT.

More than a decade later, 10-year-old Ash continues his quest. To be the very best. Like no one ever waaaaas...
