Here’s how Ash Ketchum, Pikachu from Pokémon became the very best

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.

The good news is Ash finally became the very best after becoming the Pokémon world champion.

“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.

The franchise plans to continue the series with brand new characters.
