By embracing challenges, learning from failures, overcoming obstacles, and beating the best in the world, Satoshi finally achieves his long-held dream. His adventurous spirit, however, still runs high as he continues to explore new regions, witness unfamiliar Pokémon, and forge unexpected friendships and rivalries.

As the world opens its vast horizons to Satoshi, he once more encounters the people who helped shape his momentous path to success. A legendary journey nears its end just as an entirely new one is about to begin, with the bond between humans and Pokémon continuing forevermore.

Here is my review of this anime in 2023!

Story (9)
The story is about the journey of Satoshi/Ash where He meets his old friends along with the first-generation pokemon. But somehow the ending seems like a sad theme since there are a lot of people who say that this is the last episode where Satoshi/Ash ended his journey.

Art (9)
The art of this anime is very good. It's still the same as the original.

Sound (9)
All the sounds they used are very good and adjusted to the animation.

Here we see how Ash has matured bonding with different Pokemon while some familiar faces are seen along the way.

What seems to be a wish-fulfillment special series that ties Ash's story together in one final arc... is actually a handful of fillery plots ...

Endings can make or break a piece of media. If done correctly, their legacy can be cemented in the pantheon of pop culture for ages to come. Conversely, community goodwill that’s been painstakingly built up for years can be undone in an instant.

With that said…it is with a heavy heart that I bring you this bad news: Pokémon got the Game of Thrones treatment. If you’ve never watched Game of Thrones or read up on the angry fan backlash that ensued after the final season was over, I’ll get straight to the point.

Ash’s final season was a pile of rotting, stinking dogshit
