the new season of Pokémon will feature Pikachu, but not the one everyone thinks

It was undeniable to think that, at some point in our lives, Ash Ketchum and Pikachu had to retire completely from being a pokemon trainer. Now, after winning the international championship and consecrating himself as the best coach in the world after 25 years, the time had come to hang up the cap forever.

And although there are still a few chapters left before it disappears from the screens, Nintendo and pokemon company They are already announcing the next protagonists and secondary characters of the new season of the anime inspired by these pocket monsters.

This time, we will talk about the return of possibly the most famous Pokémon of all time: Pikachu. However, this return turns a bit bittersweet when learning that he will not be the same Pikachu from Ash, but another belonging to a completely new professor in the series.

will be the Professor Friede who will accompany the brand new Captain Pikachu through the region of pales from Pokémon Scarlet and Purple. The choice of this Pokémon was not by chance, since the company itself has reiterated the importance of this creature in the anime since it began: “For 27 years, Pikachu has been synonymous with the Pokémon groupand we want this beloved Pokémon to continue to have a significant presence in the animated series and continue to be an icon of the brand.”

As you can see in the picture, this Pikachu will be quite different whom we are used to seeing, since instead of having a smiling and friendly air, he looks more like an unscrupulous general.
