More details on XY anime series revealed
TV-Tokyo's mini-site for the Pocket Monsters XY series has been updated to reveal new information regarding the characters in the new anime series. Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie are confirmed to Ash's new companions as he journeys through the Kalos region.
Serena is a girl from the Kalos region who loves fashion. It seems that she has met Ash before. Clemont is an Electric-type Gym Leader who loves inventing. He keeps his prized invention, the Aipom Arm, in his rucksack. Bonnie is Clemont's sister. Since she is trying to find a wife for her brother, Bonnie is a girl with a stern personality. As she isn't a Trainer yet, she will be keeping Clemont's Pokémon instead. The three characters will be voiced by Mayuki Makaguchi, Yūki Kaji, and Mariya Ise respectively.
Professor Sycamore is a professor from Kalos who gives the Starter Pokémon to the new Trainers. Team Rocket will also make an appearance in the new series. Similar to the Best Wishes series, Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny both receive new designs.
The opening theme is called Volt (Japanese: Ｖ（ボルト）) and will be performed by Yusuke. The ending theme will be X Strait Y Scenery (Japanese: Ｘ海峡Ｙ景色) and will be performed by J☆Dee'Z.

Bonnie holds Clemont's Dedenne. Bonnie, Clemont, and Serena interact with Fennekin and Chespin. Ash was shown running with a hurt Froakie.
