On September 1st, we just learned that the series would be called simply "Pocket Monsters", and it would focus on all regions instead of simply Galar, with a little announcement that we would get some news on September 29th.I was thinking, when can we expect to start getting info about the next series (assuming PM2019 will end). I don't remember how early the previous series were announced.
But one thing to keep in mind is that it was announced before the end of Alola League arc, after SM137. The league continued for 7 more episodes after that.
On September 27th, the artwork for the series has been leaked (the one Ash and Goh posing in front of lots of Pokémon and characters).
2 days later, the artwork has been confirmed to be official. We also learned Goh's name, his goal to catch all Pokémon in order to get Mew, his partner being Scorbunny, and the airdate of first two episodes.
In early October, nothing major happened. They just showed some further artworks of Ash and Goh visiting different regions.
That is until October 11th, when Sakuragi and Koharu were revealed within his lab in Vermilioın City. This is 2 days before Ash vs Kukui battle has been concluded.
On October 27th, the screenshots of first episode has been revealed, focusing on Kangaskhan and Pichu.
November 1st confirmed that the first episode would focus on before Ash and Pikachu met, gave us the episode title and a preview.
And the series started on November 17th.
They have been drastically secretive about information compared to the past series.
