The day has come and there’s nothing else to do, beloved Ash Ketchum finally said goodbye to Pokemon anime just a few hours ago with the release of the latest episode in the franchise. A moment that was undeniably strong for the fans, but which in turn comforts us knowing that the trainer and his Pikachu had a happy ending.
After 1,233 episodes, 25 seasons, and just over 25 years, Ash’s story has come to an end, or at least that’s what it’s been saying since last year, when Turner became the champion of the Eight Masters and fulfilled his dream of being the best Pokémon. Coach, it was announced that the main character would finally be leaving the anime after so many years to make room for a number of new characters to come next season, which is scheduled to premiere in April. During these last weeks, the young Ketchum has been wrapping up his farewell arc and final episodes to finally come to a simple but hugely important conclusion.
As you can see, Ash’s final scene was very simple, and he only left this little space to show us that the trainer is just ready to go his own way, go on with his life, and with all the audacity to throw a branch that will hit the target. he lets Pikachu decide which course to take. And yes, it’s a happy ending, but also hopeful because it leaves the door open for the character to return to some point in the story, albeit perhaps a little or a little more.
Something great we saw in this episode of Ash’s farewell was that Team Rocket reunited after what was their bitter goodbye a couple of episodes ago, which tells us that Ash’s rivals will also continue on their course. , leaving aside the whim of wanting to catch Pikachu. .
In the end, this is a great conclusion or conclusion for the huge generation of fans who have followed and identified with the life of a coach for over 25 years, with the only difference being that we all grew up to become lords and Ash always stayed with a 10 year old boy.
