This weekend brought a monumental moment for the Pokemon universe as the TV show reached its 1000th episode on Disney XD and the DisneyNOW. The episode entitled, “The Professors’ New Adventure” continues the latest season, Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon—Ultra Adventures. What’s it all about?
Here’s the synopsis from Pokemon International:
Following their journey through the Ultra Wormhole, our heroes return to the Pokémon School, where Lillie thanks everyone for their help saving her mother. Later, during a walk on the beach, Professor Kukui asks Professor Burnet to marry him! They aren’t planning a wedding ceremony, but our heroes have other ideas…a surprise ceremony awaits! Then, Lusamine asks the Pokémon School class to join the Ultra Guardians—a group that protects Alola from Ultra Beasts. And just after the bouquet toss, Solgaleo appears! Ash gets his wish and thanks the Legendary Pokémon for all its help, and he looks forward to seeing it again someday.
Sounds pretty cool, huh? A Pokemon wedding! I’ll take it. Besides, any chance to see legendary Pokemon is a win for me.
All in all, I have to say that I’m really glad this show is around. I hope it stays that way. 1000 episodes may seem like a lot to some, but The Simpsons are somewhere in the 600’s and believe it or not…there are probably just as many Pokemon fans as there are Simpsons. You can tune in to watch the 1000th episode on DisneyNOW right now.
