Ash Ketchum's final Pokémon episodes will air on Netflix in September

End of an era.

For English speakers, Ash Ketchum's journey with Pikachu in the Pokémon anime will come to an end in September.

The Pokémon Company announced last year the protagonist of the long-running series would leave after 25 years and that final episode has already been broadcast in Japan.

Yesterday at San Diego Comic Con, it was announced the final episodes will debut in English in America and Latin America on Netflix later this year: 8th September.

The news came alongside a trailer for Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series, featuring a recap of Ash and Pikachu's journey as well as a brief glimpse of what's yet to come. Tissues at the ready.
