Confirming the departure of Ash Ketchum as the protagonist in the next series of Pokemon surprised many fans of the universe created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1996. However, Aim to Be a Pokémon Master proves to be a great homage to the origins of the series, and the surprises don't seem to be over yet given the titles of the next installments.

If the tenth episode of the special series will be dedicated to the last and probably the most blatant, Team Rocket's attempt to capture the Pikachu by Ash, as stated in the synopsis below, the following two will focus entirely on Ketchum and the important cameo that director Yuyamai has been anticipating for the past few weeks.

The March 17, 2023 episode titled "Ashes on Latias' reveals one of the sequences released in the preview to promote the series. The protagonist will fly together with Latias, whom he met at the beginning of the series and treated by himself to reach an undefined destination. The following week, on March 24, 2023, we will see the final episode instead "Rainbow and Pokemon Masters', which could foreshadow Ash's arrival in an unknown dimension or place, unpublished in the anime but present in the video games, and his meeting with the legendary Ho-Oh that led him on his incredible journey years earlier.

And what do you expect from the conclusion of Ash Ketchum's story in the Pokémon anime? We look forward to hearing your opinions and guesses in the comments. Finally, we remind you that on Monday, February 27, there will be a special Pokémon Day event where news about the franchise will be presented and we will leave you with the latest statements about the future of Pikachu in the anime.
