Pokemon: Explorations it was the final leg of Ash Ketchum's long journey as a manager. In fact, after obtaining the title of world champion, the protagonist is about to say goodbye to the series, leaving space for the two young coaches who will be the protagonists of the next series: Liko and Roy.
In 2023 The Pokémon anime will be moved to the Paldea regionwhere the video games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are set, and to accompany viewers in their exploration, Loki and Roy will be together with their faithful companions Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly, the three starters of the ninth generation. At this time, the names of the two trainers have not been released, considering the changes that are always made when it comes to customizations outside of Japan.
However, also based on the theories that have emerged in the community, we can assume that these two trainers will somehow be connected to already familiar characters within the series, and maybe we'll have the opportunity to see familiar faces again. The only really concrete information for now is that Liko and Roy will crossbreed with a Shining Rayquazaone of the Pokémon of the weather trio introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and inspired by the Jewish mythology figure of the Ziz, or Lord of the Skies, who opposes the Leviathan, represented by Kyogre, and by the Behemoth, namely Groudon in the Pokémon universe.
In conclusion, we recall that according to an extravagant fan theory, Liko would be Ash and Serena's daughter, and after saying goodbye, leave you with the words of Ash's American voice actress.
