more than 20 years of battle and 1000 episodes
It's finally here! After 25 years of adventuring, criss-crossing the globe in search of challenges, young Ash has officially become the world's best Pokémon trainer!
The final episode of Pokémon Ultimate Journeys, "The Finals IV: Partner" aired on Friday, November 11 in Japan and brought to life the historic moment when Ash is crowned the Pokemon World Champion.
The official Pokemon Twitter account personally congratulated the 10-year-old trainer on his victory over Leon (Satoshi), making him the top Pokemon trainer. Still carrying his trusty Pikachu on his shoulder, Ash has come a long way. The beginning of his adventure started in 1997. Congratulations Ash!
