Pokemon is on a high right now thanks to its latest game release, and that hype is only about to get bigger. If you did not know, The Pokemon Company will debut a new game early next year which brings its monsters to an open world. Pokemon Legends: Arceus will kick off a new era for the franchise, and it turns out the game is getting a matching anime arc.
The update went live today courtesy of Pokemon Journeys, the mainline anime’s current season. It was there fans were told an exclusive anime arc based on Pokemon Legends: Arceus will drop in Japan next month.
To commemorate the realase of #PokemonLegendsArceus, a set of 2 special episodes called “God Arceus” set for exclusive release on Amazon Prime on Jan 21 & 28 where Dawn, Ash and Go are set to explore the Hisui region.. #Anipoke pic.twitter.com/FnPJ3ZHolR

According to the reports from Japan, the Pokemon arc will consist of two episodes, and the story is being called “God Arceus” for good measure. It will follow Ash, Goh, and Dawn as the pair gather to explore the Hisui region. This means the trio is likely about to travel back in time for the arc, but when Arceus is involved, anything can happen.
The only stipulation holding this arc back is its exclusive debut. Current reports suggest this special arc will be released on Amazon Prime rather than Netflix. Episode one will debut on January 21st before finishing on the 28th. And to make it worse, only Japan will get access to these episodes.
There is always a chance Pokemon might bring this arc stateside, but that is yet to be seen. The only thing we do know is that Pokemon Legends: Arceus will debut in North America on January 28. So if we are lucky, this special might find its way overseas yet!
