Pokemon's New Season Will Reunite Ash With the Squirtle Squad

The new year is here, and that means Ash Ketchum is about to do something we've never seen. After all, Pokemon promised fans the trainer's journey would come to an end in 2023, and its new anime is seeing the trainer out. With decades of screentime at his side, Ash has a lot to do as he makes his final bow to fans. And now, a new update has confirmed one of his tasks will be to reunite with the infamous Squirtle Squad. 

Yes, that is right. The Squirtle Squad is coming back to television, and we can only assume their shades are coming with them.

Recently, this big cameo came to light when Animage put out a slew of new Pokemon titles. It was there fans learned about two future episodes of Aim to Be a Pokemon Master. One of them will follow Beartic, and the other? Well, episode five will be titled "Burn! The Squirtle Squad".

Of course, fans are eager to see what this episode holds for Ash. Aim to Be a Pokemon Master plans to bow out Ash gracefully before a new Pokemon anime gets underway later this year. With new heroes at the helm, there is no telling how much of the original Pokemon anime under Ash will play into the series. This could be the last time we see the Squirtle Squad on the small screen. And if that is the case, fans better treasure the time they get!
