Pokemon Anime Fans Are Emotional Over Misty's Return in One of Ash's Final Episodes

Pokemon anime fans have shared their emotional reactions to Misty returning for one of Ash’s final ever episodes.

Misty reunited with her old partner in the latest episode of Aim to Be a Pokémon Master – the mini-series that sees Ash visiting past friends and Pokémon as he tries to determine his goals now that he’s the world’s greatest Pokémon trainer, and what it means to be a Pokémon master.

Viewers took to social media to celebrate the moment that Ash and Misty reconnected, with many reveling in the nostalgia that the episode evoked for long-time fans of the series. Some even recalled their favorite episodes with the classic duo from the first season and beyond.

Ash is getting one last hurrah in Aim to Be a Pokémon Master, as his story in the long-running anime series is drawing to a close. He is likely to be joined by even more of the series’ most memorable characters, including Brock, as the final episodes of this special arc play out.

Once Ash’s journey is over, a new series will begin with dual protagonists Liko and Roy, who will embark on action-packed adventures across the Pokémon world. The series will debut this year after the conclusion of Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series and its eleven-episode final arc.
