“Pokémon Horizons: The Series” new episodes synopsis:  

Liko, Roy and Friede set off to Galar Mine in search of the black Rayquaza, where they run from the furious Galarian Moltres, and Liko is surprised when it begins communicating with her pendant. 

After meeting up with her grandma, Liko finally learns the identity of the Pokémon who transformed from her pendant — Terapagos! But the family reunion is disrupted when the Explorers go on the offensive, first pursuing Terapagos and then setting their sights on the black Rayquaza. Meanwhile, the Rising Volt Tacklers track down an Ancient Poké Ball thief, Orla shows her skills at a Poké Ball factory and the Brave Olivine gains two new Pokémon residents. Then, a rumour about a singing Pokémon leads the crew to another of Lucius’s Six Heroes — and the black Rayquaza isn’t far behind!
