Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon (Japanese: ポケットモンスター サン＆ムーン Pocket Monsters Sun & Moon), referred to by fans as the Sun & Moon series, is the sixth series of the Pokémon anime and is based on the events of the Generation VII core series Pokémon games. It follows the XY series. It premiered on November 17, 2016 in Japan, although the first two episodes aired as a sneak peek in the United States on December 5, 2016.
A new art style is implemented for the third series in a row, this time more drastically than the series that preceded it, with characters being drawn with a much more exaggerated, rounded, "cartoony" style.
So far, it has been divided into one season for audiences outside of Japan.
When the Sun & Moon series came to be dubbed into English and other languages, it has been divided into one season:
