Things are looking good for Ash Ketchum in the recent Alola League Tournament! As he has made his way into the finals of season spanning tourney, Ketchum has brought low many a foe in order to finally take home a win. Throughout his Pokemon training career, Ketchum has yet to win a tournament proper and fans have been biting their nails in anticipation as to whether or not Pokemon the Series: Sun and Moon would finally give him his shot! An upcoming promo for the future episode may just be pointing to a victory coming his way!

Twitter User AshandSerena posted images showing Ash receiving a trophy from Royal Mask, seeming to give away the fact that Ketchum will in fact be the champion of the Alola League Tournament, though whether or not this could be a misdirect is something that we'll have to wait to see revealed:

The last round of the tournament sees Ash struggling against Gladion in the championship round, with the two young trainers going all out to claim victory. With both having made their way up an exceptionally long battle and battling many foes, both in and out of the tournament itself, either competitor is well worthy of crown. If this is somehow a misdirect and Ash isn't the winner, the images would do an amazing job of fooling Pokemon fans, that's for sure.

With a new anime series premiering shortly, what better way to kick things off than with a big win in Ash Ketchum's corner?

If you haven't kept up with the current run of the anime, Pokemon the Series: Sun and Moon is described as such, "What starts as a summer vacation in the tropical Alola region turns into the next exciting chapter in Ash Ketchum's quest to become a Pokémon Master! There's plenty for Ash and Pikachu to explore in this sunny new region, with exciting new Pokémon to discover and interesting people to learn from along the way—including the cool Professor Kukui and the fun-loving Samson Oak.

More new faces will help guide Ash's Alolan adventure, in the form of a group of skilled Trainers—Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, and Sophocles—and a mysterious research assistant called Lillie. Frequent foes Team Rocket have also made the trip to Alola, looking to swipe some high-powered new Pokémon. But they have some heavy competition on the villainy front: the ruffians of Team Skull, who delight in causing chaos and may have more sinister intentions..."
