Pokemon Journeys has been working its way through the Masters Tournament with its latest string of episodes airing in Japan, and new episode titles for the series are teasing what to expect from the semifinals of this big tournament of champions! The newest iteration of the long running franchise is now in the midst of its climax as Ash Ketchum has been battling through the quarterfinals of the Masters Tournament. This tournament so far have seen the various regional champions go up against one another, and now the best of the best have made their way to the next round of the competition.
Pokemon Journeys is gearing up for the semifinals matches of the Masters Tournament, and it's been revealed that these matches will officially kick off with the mid-August episodes of the series airing in Japan. According to new listings for the future episodes of the series (as spotted by @AnipokeFandom on Twitter), Episode 120 of the series will be airing on August 12th and is apparently titled "The Climax Begins: [Ash's] Masters Tournament Experience!" so it seems like the franchise will be jumping right back into the tournament.
It seems that there will be a break in between the tournament's episodes as following the latest episode of the series ending the quarterfinals of the Masters Tournament, the series will be taking a brief detour for a Chloe focused episode. Then with this future title it seems like we'll get to see Ash's reflection on what has come so far. But the more exciting title is right after. Airing on August 26th in Japan, Episode 121 is reportedly titled "Semifinals I: Overwhelming Victory!" and this is certainly promising as it teases the first match of this second round.
The first match of the semifinals is between Leon and Diantha, and while the title doesn't tease who wins, it seems like it's going to be a massive victory for one side. It's pretty clear who this winner will probably be, but it remains to be seen if Ash can win his own semifinals match and make his way to the grand finals of the World Coronation Series overall. But are you curious to see how the semifinals round works out? Can Ash actually win the Masters Tournament? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
