It has been 25 years since the original 10-year-old Pokémon trainer character and his reticent Pikachu left Pallet Town, where he captured the hearts of people across many generations.

The character has encountered many difficult challenges throughout the years, finishing 16th in the Kanto region, three times in the Top 8 (Johto/Hoenn/Unova) in 2002, 2005, and 2013, and even finishing second in the Kalos area in 2016.

When Leon was finally vanquished, Ash Ketchum’s team of Lucario, Gengar, Dragonite, Dracovish, Sirfetch’d, and Pikachu battled him. All were destroyed, but Pikachu managed a crucial headbutt on Charizard to secure victory.

Ash Ketchum’s tenacity and persistence in realizing his dream of overtaking all other Pokémon Trainers in the world throughout 25 seasons, according to Taito Okiura, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International, “represents the very best of what it means to be a Trainer.”
