We don’t have long left before we have to say goodbye to the protagonist of Pokemon Ash Ketchum for the past 25 years. We now know the air date of the anime’s first episodes in Japan, with Ash Ketchum’s adventure ending on January 13, 2023, according to a Famitsu article. In the final episodes, Ash will be reunited with his original companions, Misty and Brock.

We’ve known for some time that the final episodes of Ash’s journey will act as his swan song before moving on to a new protagonist’s story, and we now know that the original theme will be revisited for these final episodes. Leaving Squirtle aside, some Pokémon trainers will shed some tears when these episodes air later in the month. Ash Ketchum’s eleven-part journey is expected to end in April.

The game is called animal good and you can watch the trailer for it here. animal good will be released on PlayStation 5 and Steam where it is now available on wishlist.

While Videogamedunkey’s announcement of a new publisher caused some resentment in gaming circles, an independent publisher putting the spotlight on smaller games shouldn’t be seen as a negative. Especially when you consider that he can use his platform in partnership with his company to bring the spotlight to games that might otherwise not have caught the attention of players.
