Pokemon Gives Ash's Gengar a Gigantamax Upgrade: Watch

Pokemon Journeys has officially given Ash's Gengar its own Gigantamax form with the newest episode of the anime! The series has been making its way through a string of two episode arcs that have challenged Ash and his team in a number of interesting ways. This meant not only a return of Dawn, Cynthia, and the Sinnoh region to honor the recent releases of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but the run of episodes for the year ended in Japan with a special two episode arc that saw Ash and Goh head out in a spooky adventure to help Gengar reach Gigantamax.

These special episodes had Ash and Goh heading back to the Galar region once more, and the two of them soon come across the ghostly gym leader from the Stow-on-Side gym, Allister. With this new character debut, and a couple of spooky shenanigans over the course of this two episode event, Gengar is helped to reach a brand new form, Gigantamax.

Throughout Pokemon Journeys, Ash has been making his way through the ranks of the World Coronation Series. With each new battle, he has not only been seen utilizing the various regional techniques he had learned about through his travels, but unlocking each of these powers for his new team. With an official Gigantamax Pokemon now in his team, this joins his Z-Move with Pikachu and Mega Lucario for a triad of powerful Pokemon that could certainly help him as he continues to rise through the Ultra Class in the attempt to get to the Master Class finals. 

Fans have not only been wanting Ash to have a Gengar on his team for many years, but were hoping to see that Gengar get this upgrade in the Galar region. Now that it has been officially introduced, it's just a matter of waiting to see how it's going to be used in any of the future battles. Just like the other regional abilities, Ash now has another powerful tool in his arsenal in order to take on some of the toughest trainers in his path yet. But what do you think?
