Additionally, former friends of Ash’s, including Brock, Misty, and Dawn, appeared in the episode.
Meanwhile, Sarah Natochenny, the voice actress for the American version of Ash, also congratulated the eternal 10-year-old Pokemon protagonist.
‘I want to share the English dub of this Pokemon episode with the world,’ she tweeted. It’s such an honor to have a voice for Ash Ketchum as he becomes world champion. He was the best. He’s like no one else.’
Beyond that, The Pokémon Company International Vice President of Marketing Taito Okiura said, ‘Ash Ketchum’s determination and persistence to achieve his goal of becoming the world’s best Pokémon trainer over 25 seasons best represents what it means to be a trainer. ‘
Additionally, Ash and Pikachu faced many challenges after embarking on an adventurous journey in the 1997 Pokemon: Indigo League series. The two also had to battle the Gym Leaders while preventing Team Rocket from causing more trouble.
Fans React to Ash Ketchum’s Victory
Many excited fans of Pokemon have shared on their social media accounts their reactions to Ash becoming world champion.
A user shared a photo of a large building in Japan where Ash’s victory was screened.
They say ‘I CAN’T I CAN’T I CAN’T BELIELY THE THE SHOW ASH’S WIN ON THE BIG SCREENS IN JAPAN RIGHT IN THE CITY.’
Moreover, another fan wrote, “I didn’t realize it was actually the culmination of all the seasons and stuff.” Show all the Pikachu team members, Ash catches him before he hits the ground, and more. I definitely cried like a baby.’
The quality is a bit uncertain as the episode just came out, but here’s a glimpse of the battle. https://t.co/Br0JxYKEAW
