To commemorate all of his accomplishments throughout his one-year (in anime) career, the best Pokémon trainer has taken over the main screen at JR Shinjuku Station, which is the busiest train station in the world! The 26-year journey that Ash and Pikachu have been on in the Pokémon anime will end later this month.
The footage will be displayed until March 19, but the official Pokémon Twitter account has already shown the video off in a Tweet for those who won't be able to make it out to Shinjuku to witness it in person.
For those watching the current seasons of the Pokémon anime, the latest batch of Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series launched on February 24 on Netflix in the US, with the final batches, which feature Ash's final episodes, being released at a later time. The newest Pokémon anime which features the first new protagonists in the history of the franchise starts in Japan on April 14 with Saori Den directing at OLM.
Check out the trailer below for the newest chapter of the Pokémon series - Pokémon Ultimate Journeys: The Series!

This season brings to a close the research fellowship adventures of Ash Ketchum and Goh (sometimes Chloe joins them), as they travel across all eight regions, including the new Galar region introduced in Pokémon Sword and Shield and the Crown Tundra featured in Pokémon Sword and Shield: The Crown Tundra. Their home base is Cerise Laboratory, which is located in Vermillion City, which is located in the Kanto region. While this is going on, Goh is continuing his work on Project Mew, and Ash is making his way up the rankings of the World Coronation Series.
