Pocket Monsters: Aim to be a Pokémon Master follows Ash on a new journey with his old friends, Misty (voiced by Mayumi Iizuka) and Brock (voiced by Yūji Ueda), where he reunites with past companions and Pokémon from the various regions he has travelled in. Cilan (voiced by Mamoru Miyano), his companion from the Best Wishes arc, returned in episode 3, however did not join the team on their continuing journey.

The opening theme for the series in Japan is Aim to be a Pokémon Master -with my friends-, a remake of the original 1997 theme set against a backdrop of highlights from Ash and Pikachu's 25 years of journeying. A remix of the original English language Pokémon Theme is expected to be used for the international release, and promotional videos for the arc on Pokémon's official English language social media accounts have already featured the original song.
