Pokémon: Ash Ketchum became World Champion after 25 years


After 25 years, Ash Ketchum finally became the World Champion in the Pokémon animated series. The news comes from the official social media of The Pokémon Company where the incredible feat of the young protagonist is celebrated, who finally fulfilled his dream.

Pallet Town's young trainer won the title in the latest installment of the Pokémon Explorations animated series, in which he won the final of the World Crowning Tournament, beating Dandel, the Galar Pokémon League Champion ( which players know well, as it also plays the same role in Pokémon Sword and Shield).

The match lasted four episodes and in the end Ash won the victory point thanks to Pikachu, who has defeated the fierce Charizard of Dandel. The tournament was attended by other well-known faces of the Game Freak series, such as Iris, Camilla and Lance.

Ash Ketchum's adventure began in the now distant 1997, when the very first episode aired of the Pokémon animated series and even then the young trainer of Pallet Town (who after twenty-five years of broadcasting still has ten) dreamed of becoming a Pokémon Master.

A goal that has proved decidedly arduous and along its path Ash has tasted the bitter taste of defeat several times by participating in the major league competitions, while demonstrating an undeniable talent.

Let's remember how for example he finished in the Top 16 in the Altopiano Blu tournament and touched the top step of the podium in the Kalos League where he finished second. He only became Champion in 2019, winning in the Alola League, which guaranteed him an invitation to the World Crowning Tournament, where he won the title of the strongest coach in the world. What can I say, congratulations Ash Ketchum!
