The Pokemon Anime Series has never failed to impress us. Pokemon Journeys, also known as the Pocket Monsters in Japan, recently in their preview teased a rematch between Ash Ketchum and Volkner.
The series Pokemon Journey is the twenty-third season of the Pokémon anime series and originally airs on TV Tokyo. It was originally released on November 17, 2019.
The series teased a rematch between Ash Ketchum also known as Satoshi in Japan, who is the protagonist of various Pokémon anime series, and Volkner who is the strongest Gym Leader of Sunyshore City. Volkner once challenged Ash to fight against him but “Ash” won the challenge and took away the Badge. But a preview of the Pokemon Journeys has teased their rematch.
Ash and Goh for several years have worked together and defeated many Pokemons on their way. They made their way to various regions of the franchise with Ash battling against all enemies they encountered in their World Coronation Series to ultimately challenge the champion, Leon. Goh has always been Ash’s sidekick for many series and is a 10-year-old rookie Pokémon Trainer and a research assistant. He has one goal and it is to catch Mew, while his dream is to catch every single Pokémon.
Leon is the Champion of the Galar region’s Pokémon League and has a strong team consisting of favorites such as Aegislash, Cinderace, and the most popular Pokémon of all time, Charizard. Ash has already lost to Leon in their first battle, but it’s clear that he has not forgotten about his end goal for this series which is to defeat Leon.
This big match will be seen on the 77th episode of the season which will air in Japan. The rematch was previewed to celebrate the Pokemon Journey. Earlier Ash successfully defeated Volkner’s whole team and who are quite powerful as all were a part of the Ultra Class trainers. But now Ash has to face another set of enemies that Volkner will be bringing in the rematch.
The 77 th episode is titled “A Super Electromagnetic Ultra Class Battle” which clearly points out to Volkner who belongs to the Ultra Class. The storyline of the preview teases as follows- “Ash is all set to battle against Leon in the World Coronation Series, who is the strongest champion of all in the Alola region. We then see Volkner in the picture who is accompanied by Iris and both have won the match and reached the Ultra Class position and secured 99 th place. He is a Gym Leader and meets Ash while traveling the city. He has already defeated many enemies in his previous battles and now is all set to defect Ash.”
