Pokemon Sun and Moon (known in Japan as Pocket Monsters: SuperMax!) is the 20th season of the long-running Pokemon anime franchise. Ash and Pikachu travel to the Alola region with Serena, and new friends Mallow and Hau, as they take on the unexpected. Alongside winning gym battles, they are invited to take on the Island Challenges, and meet old Pokemon that gain new forms after adapting to Alola's environment. While facing off with Team Rocket, they also cross paths with an evil punk gang Team Skull, and the most dangerous villain in the Alola Region, Nakdafar the Pokemon Djinn.
