In fact, this series will also include new Pokemon from recent Nintendo games, such as the starters Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
As for Ash now, the company has revealed that in 2023, it will release 11 special episodes and calls them "Final Chapter", which will focus on the legendary protagonist and Pikachu. This means that you should prepare now to say goodbye to Ash, as after the finale of Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series you will see other central figures.
