Pokémon started airing on Tv in 1997 and has always focused on just one character, Ash Ketchum, and his dream to "Catch'em All" along with his trusted companion, Pikachu. He wanted to become the Ultimate Pokémon Master, and now after 25 Years, the journey seems to be officially coming to an end.
This announcement was a surprise for many Pokémon fans, who love Ash and, of course, Pikachu. The Pokémon Company has just confirmed the end of an Era. Where the beloved Duo was featured in a dozen feature movies and the animated series. Heck! they even made some subtle appearances in the video game series.
