Upcoming Pokémon Anime Series Will Introduce A New Hero Alongside Ash
Step aside Ash, there’s a new Pokémon trainer in town. Famitsu is reporting that the new Pokémon anime series (called Pocket Monsters in Japan) will feature a new hero who will be training alongside Ash, marking the first time that two characters will be front and center. The new trainer’s name translates to Go, and he’s 10 years in age. Ash obviously still relies on Pikachu as his go-to Pokémon, whereas Go is a bit more modern, selecting Scorbunny from the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield games as his main.
The animated series debuts in Japan on November 17 on TV Tokyo. Odds are it will make its way stateside in the months ahead.
