The epilogue of Ash’s journey in the Pokemon series was announced on December 16, 2022. It will conclude the aftermath of Ash after he won the world championship. The series’ trailer has also been released at the same time as the announcement.
In the trailer, we can see that the first companion of Ash Ketchum, Misty and Brock, makes a comeback. The first rival of Ash, Gary, also seems to hit the screen once again. It can be said that Ash is finally going home to his region Kanto bringing his trophy.
The visual animation has been upgraded to be the same as the 2019 version. Even though it is arguably worse than its prequel, it is still better compared to the original version when Pokemon was first released in 1997.
For the fans of Pokemon out there, don’t fret, although the journey of Ash Ketchum is finally ended on a good note, doesn’t mean that the world of Pokemon will be ceased to exist. The next generation of Pokemon will follow the journey of the new two protagonists, Riko and Roy.
With a seemed new brand generation of starter Pokemon, we can finally add a whole new generation of Pokemon to the repertoire. That said, the new series may use the Scarlet and Violet game’s Pokemon database which unlocked a new Paldea region.
The new season is still shrouded in mystery. But, the fog will be dispersed as soon as the story of Ash ends in March. The new Pokemon will be broadcasted in April 2023. Just sit back and relax enjoying the story of Ash after he won the Pokemon world championship.
Pokemon 25 Years Journey
It is almost unreal that Ash, a never-aging 10-years old boy, finally becomes a master of Pokemon. Along with his yellow friend, Pikachu, he has ventured into nine different major regions and met many friends along the way.
Reportedly, there are 1300 episodes total telling about those two journeys from Pallet Town to Galar region where his dream to be a Pokemon master was fulfilled.
Having the iconic duo which represents the franchise Pokemon retired, the fans seem emotional about parting with them. But, with how everyone gets tired of Ash’s failure to become the champion over years, it is a bold decision to end the series and starts to blow fresh wind to the Pokemon franchise.
Sarah Natochenny, who has voiced Ash Ketchum since 2006, revealed her journey with Pokemon over years. She announced the epilogue on December 16, 2022. Considering this will be her last stop, she is grateful for the long journey of Ash and for the impact she had on her life.
