The English version they only aired for 22 seasons almost 23 and it aired in 1998 in August but in the Japanese version pocket monsters they only aired with 22 seasons and air sense April in 1997 so that means the Japanese version is older because it’s 22 the English version it’s only 20

Great news but I think they never should have switched the anime style for the anime! It could’ve been way more nostalgic for us older fans

They need to end this fella journey. Forever young Ash. I'm now 33 years of age. But at Kanto to lose with trainer Red, I think during gameboy Yellow game, we did face Ash in the champions league. Haha well I hope the writer end this anime / Manga by Ash winning the Kanto League. And after that forever gotta catch them all.

Like finally! But I can not enjoy it totally because the design is so clingy ugh. Like at least kept it more the same and had him grow up instead of this....

Shame they couldn't let him win during the time the older fans like myself were watching the anime back in the 90s, I personally stopped watching around the start of Black/White since after watching from the start not much had changed when it came to Gym/League fights and I didn't see them changing the formula so I dropped it.

He should've won in the Kalos league. This victory felt hollow and it felt like Ash didn't improve during the series at all, especially when you look at previous rounds of the tournament and how he won through gimmicks.
TheMegaUzumaki Hace 4 meses
Kalos was a complete joke. This victory was authentic and Ash improved as a person and as a trainer. The only gimmick is Bond Phenomenon and how much of a waste of time it was. Ash actually got a Z-ring and crystals.

He won a contest that would be considered DLC content in any game where its just an extra dungeon. A true winner is the character Red and even more so with Gold (who won two leagues back to back).

Like some of the comments mentioned. It didn't actually took 22 years for Ash to win his first league championship. It took the viewers that amount. For each episode, a day passes in ash's world. You can then do the math.

I still say the Kalos league loss was BULL, you let him lose to the pokemon HE made popular in the first place, Charizard.
