The original Pokemon series came long back in 1997, with Ash and his Pikachu as the main focus making the franchise almost 25 years old. The show is argued to feel like an advertisement more than an anime series among its fans. Moreover, many fans discuss if there will be a replacement for Ash that will soon follow in the plot of the show. With Goh coming through as one of the main protagonists in the newest launch, the next releases might bring a lot more changes.

The visuals not only saw the addition of new characters but brought back many old ones too. Hence, it is clear that the new arc will find a lot of recurring faces in the plot. Currently, Ash is on a journey called the Mew Project, where he searches for the mythical pokemon, Mew, and the genes of other pokemon. It is significant that Ash has come across Mew before in Pokemon: The First Movie.
Moreover, the promo finds Horace, who is an arch-nemesis of Goh, back into the story. Another detail that has shook the fans is Gary owning a Tyranitor along with his Arcanine and Umbreon. In addition, Pokemon Journeys next arc is likely to focus on Articuno in the coming episodes. It is likely that Ash joins hands with his old rival in this arc while Goh fights his enemy once and for all. Lastly, according to the 99th episode of the anime, after winning his battle against Mary, Ash and Goh aim for the Master Class next.
