Pokemon Journeys Edits Opening to Honor Ash's New Title

Pokemon Journeys is getting ready for its final climax, and has sneakily updated its opening theme sequence to celebrate Ash Ketchum's entry into the Master Class of the World Coronation Series! The newest iteration of the series has been following Ash as he has battled his way up the ranks of this world spanning tournament, and the previous episode of the series confirmed that he had officially become one of the top eight trainers in the world overall. It was then that the full roster for the final Masters Tournament was revealed, and confirmed it included some heavy hitting champions.

While the newest opening theme sequence for the series had already been teasing some big things for Ash as it briefly showcased a battle between he and the current champion, Leon, the newest episode has updated this theme even more. Showcasing some brand new scenes to spice things up, the newest opening not only includes a special look at the Master Class' top trainers but even goes as far as seeing Ash taking on Leon in a pretty fierce battle with the help of his Mega Lucario. You can see the differences as spotted by fans below: 

Pokemon Journeys is getting ready for its final climax for both Ash and Goh. While Ash has become one of the top trainers in the world and is readying for the final tournament of champions, Goh himself is closer than ever to getting onto the Legendary hunting Project Mew team. Both of these young trainers have reached a high point in their respective lives and the future episodes of the series will then be showcasing how Ash and Goh face each of these respective challenges. It's not going to be easy for either. 

Ash is currently heading into a tournament against the likes of Leon, Lance, Cynthia, Steven, Alain, Iris, and Diantha, and that means hopefully fans will get to see each of these regional champions in the heat of battle as the tournament finally kicks off. There has yet to be a date set for when this will happen, however. What do you think? Are you excited to see Pokemon Journeys get to its grand finale?
