Pokemon Journeys has shared the first look at the next major Kanto Gym Leader making their return to the anime with the preview for the next episode! Fans have been very much enjoying the newest iteration of the series as it has not only explored some elements from the newer region introduced in the video games, but has made time to explore all of the past regions of the franchise as well. This has led to a number of major fan favorites making their comeback to the anime in previous episodes, and now the next return is getting ready as well.

This one is going to be a much more casual return than some of the other Gym Leaders that have come back, however, as it won’t be an opponent Ash is facing in the World Coronation Series. Instead, Ash, Goh, and Chloe seem to be attending a special flower arrangement class held by the Celadon City Gym Leader Erika. This Gym Leader has gotten a makeover for her upcoming return as well, and you can check out the preview for Episode 94 of Pokemon Journeys below from the series’ official YouTube channel:
Episode 94 of Pokemon Journeys: The Series is titled “Heracross Loss, Lovey Dovey Pinsir” and the synopsis for the episode describes it as such, “A [Lilligant] has just arrived in [Cerise Laboratory], and Heracross has become attracted to it. [Pinsir] gets saddened at the sight of this, since it’s in love with Heracross. The depressed [Pinsir] starts thinking that things might’ve been different if it had a pretty flower too, so [Ash and Goh] decide to take it along as they accompany [Chloe] to a ‘Pokemon flower arrangement class’ held by [Celadon City’s Gym Leader Erika] in order to cheer it up. Will [Pinsir] manage to win Heracross’ attention?”

This is far from the only major comeback from the Kanto era coming to the anime either as there is another spoilery face coming as part of the new Pokemon Legends: Arceus tie-in anime special premiering in Japan later this month. It’s yet to be revealed as to whether or not these special episodes will be releasing outside of Japan as well, but will keep you updated on if or when that’s announced.
