Pokemon Journeys Synopsis Forces Ash to Defend His Champion Title

One of the biggest story beats of the latest season of Pokemon's anime has been Ash Ketchum basking in the glow of his recent victory during the Alola Region Tournament, wherein the Pokemon trainer was finally able to score his first League championship. However, it seems that a new synopsis for an upcoming episode of Pokemon Journeys will see Ash attempting to continue his reign as champion of the region while also working towards his long-awaited encounter with Leon, the current champion of the Galar Region who has made a name for himself since he first appeared in Pokemon Sword And Shield.

Pokemon Journeys has done a great job of not only allowing Ash Ketchum to explore his new status as a Pokemon Champion, but it has also seen him grow in strength with the numerous powerful pocket monsters that he's been able to capture to add to his roster. Adding the likes of Gengar and Dragonite to his team, to name a few, the latest season has done a fantastic job of not only setting up major battles for Ash and his new friend Goh but revisit the many events and characters that have appeared in the series' past, giving fans several reunions that many thought would never take place.
