Ash Ketchum the main character in the hit series Pokémon – alongside his anime friend Pikachu – will finally see and end to their journey as the anime series says goodbye to the characters after 25 years.

“Ash Ketchum’s determination and perseverance to achieve his goal of becoming the world’s top Pokémon Trainer over the course of 25 seasons represents the very best of what it means to be a Trainer,” said Taito Okiura, vice president of marketing at Pokémon.
The main character after 25 years has finally become the very best to proclaim himself as a top tier Pokémon trainer.
For those who don’t know the hit series featuring Ash Ketchum and his best friend Pikachu had a theme song which recited the lyrics I want to be the very best, like no one ever was.
The hit theme song was part reason most of the series fans were often glued to their screens hoping to see Ash become the best Pokémon trainer.
It’s been an extraordinary privilege to have been the English voice of Ash Ketchum for what will be 17 years. No matter what lies beyond his final chapter, he’ll live forever in the hearts of many generations to come. I'll keep him present for all of us in every way I can. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/UZxPO4xD6E
