Pokemon Journeys Promo Hypes Start of Ash vs. Leon Battle

Pokemon Journeys has finally reached the climax of the Masters Tournament, and the promo for the next episode of the series is getting ready for the start of Ash Ketchum vs. Leon’s grand finals battle! Ash has worked his way up through the ranks of the World Coronation Series through the anime’s run thus far, and was able to battle his way against some tough champions to make his way to the grand finals of the Masters Tournament. Now he’s up against his biggest challenge in the anime series, and maybe the franchise to date as he takes on the undefeated champion Leon.

Pokemon Journeys has been getting ready for its grand finals battle between Ash and Leon for the past few weeks, and after much waiting, it’s finally time for it all to kick off in full. As one would expect, it won’t be settled within a single episode either as Ash and Leon’s battle is going to involve two grand finals level teams. There’s a tease that things will be kicking off explosively with the promo teasing the start of their battle coming in the next episode airing overseas. Check it out below:

Are You Ready for Ash vs. Leon?

Episode 129 of Pokemon Journeys is titled “Final I – Torrent,” and the synopsis for the episode teases it as such, “The finals of the Masters Tournament finally begin. [Ash] is enthusiastic about having an official match against [Leon], who has always been his goal. The excitement of the crowd is at its peak for the match between absolute champion [Leon] and [Ash], who has overcome all odds and reached this far. In the midst of this, [Leon] came up with a proposal…? As his former comrades and rivals watch, the decisive battle for the summit begins.”

The grand finals battle between Ash and Leon is Ash’s first real chance at becoming a full world champion in the franchise’s history, but it’s a much easier said victory than done considering that Leon’s never lost a battle before. He’s also got a strong team of Galar heavy hitters, and Ash is going to need to utilize all of the tricks he’s picked up over all of his battles so far.
