Meanwhile, the new series will introduce dual protagonists called Liko and Roy, as they set off on their own adventures across the Pokemon world. It will feature starter Pokemon Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly from the Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet video games, and the shiny version of legendary Pokemon Rayquaza.
