The Pokémon anime series began airing in 1997 and has since spanned 23 seasons. Yesterday, an episode aired in Japan where Ash Ketchum finally defeated the final coach in the Pokemon World Coronation Series Master Eight Tournament.
The main character’s opponent was Leon, the champion of the Galar region. The fight was between Picachus Ash and Leon Charizard, and ended with the first winning. After 25 years on the show, the protagonist has finally realized his dream of becoming a Pokémon Master.
What Ash does next is unknown. Fans speculate that the character will meet new adventures in the region of Paldea, which will be shown in the upcoming game Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
