I'd say that’s what most people mean when it comes to a "mature" series since Pokémon inherently isn’t a "mature" show and will most likely never see typical mature aspects.the battles were serious and XY&Z closure was quite serious itself. Other than that, Ash wasn't anywhere that far from his usual self up to that point.
Most population with context to Pokémon would probably take "mature" to mean more battles, less slapstick, and a less goofy more shounen type protagonist with a strong team and high stake plot.
