Ash Ketchum is finally the World’s Greatest Pokemon Trainer after 25 Years
Ash Ketchum, the main character in the Pokemon anime series, has finally received the title of world’s greatest Pokemon trainer and became the world champion after 25 years. This major event occurred in the most recent episode 132 of ‘Pokemon Ultimate Journeys: The Series,’ which debuted in Japan.
Pokemon’s official Twitter account shared the news, “He’s done it! Ash has become a World Champion!” in addition to a short video congratulating Ash Ketchum. Over 5 million people have seen the tweet, and over 100k people have shared it.
This is especially significant for Ash, who has always struggled in events like this. In fact, until 2019, he’d never been a Pokémon League Champion from any of his attempts, a run that ended after he beat Gladion in the Manalo Conference and then became Alola’s Champion. Fans raced to social media sites to celebrate Ash’s accomplishment, with one fan calling it as “a special, legendary, historic day.”

The Pokémon World Coronation Series, as shown in the anime, is a global championship that tends to bring together the top trainers from all regions, including previous champions Cynthia, Iris, Steven, and Lance. Of course, Ash didn’t win by himself. Pikachu, his faithful companion, was by his side at all times. His winning team included Pikachu, Dracovish, Gengar, Sirfetch’d, Lucario, and Dragonite. So, his achievement is a bit emotional, especially as the Pokemon Journey episode 132 includes cameos by Ash’s previous Pokémon companions and old travel buddies, including as Brock, Misty, Max, Mya, Cilan, Dawn, and the others.
What lies ahead for Ash and the anime now that he has achieved his dream? Although the Pokémon Company has not confirmed plans for a fresh Pokémon series with a new hero, many have speculated that Ash’s journey may be coming to an end.
The television show began as a video game and had since aired over 1,200 episodes. The anime has followed Ash Ketchum’s journey to become a Pokemon Master since 1997, when he first spotted Pikachu, the cheerful yellow Pokemon, on his 10th birthday. Two new Pokémon games, dubbed ‘Scarlet’ and ‘Violet,’ will be published on November 18th, according to their official Twitter handle.
Took him long enough, but Congrats Ash, we are happy for you!
