Pokémon the Series: XYZ Collection 2 will be released by Beyond Home Entertainment in Australia on February 1, 2017. This DVD set contains the second half of Pokémon the Series: XYZ, the current season of the English dub of the Pokémon anime.

Tentative cover

The DVD set contains 3 discs, with the last 26 episodes of the season across them combined. The DVDs are Region 4 and PAL.

This set's predecessor, Pokémon the Series: XYZ Collection 1, was released in Australia on December 7, 2016. Since the previous set contains 22 episodes and this set appears to contain 26 episodes, this would mean that Pokémon the Series: XYZ has 48 episodes, one more than the Pocket Monsters XY&Z arc of the Japanese anime, despite both starting at the same episode. Based on leaked episode titles, this additional episode is likely The Legend of X, Y, and Z!, which aired as a special in Japan.

Note that the cover image is tentative. Pokémon the Series: XYZ Collection 1 used the same cover artwork prior to its release, but ended up using completely different artwork.
