So, Ash finally won the Alola Championship, so now what?
It’s been announced by Japan during a broadcast of the Sun and Moon anime that there is a new Pokemon anime in the works. In a trailer, Ash gets a redesign and this anime introduces a new character named “Gou”. Gou will also be accompanies with the new Pokemon Sword and Shield Scorbunny. Character designer Ken Sugimori designed Gou and the voice for this new character is Daiki Yamashita (the Japanese voice of Izuku Midoriya from My Hero Academia and Jun from Sword Art Online II). The anime is set to be released on Japanese TV on Nov 17 at 6 PM.
The website describes Gou:
A 10-year-old boy whose goal is to capture the Mythical Pokémon Mew that he met when he was young. He has a calm personality but a hot heart. His dream is to catch every Pokémon.
It took 22 years for this 10 year old trainer to become a champion. This news has been buzzing like crazy on Sunday. It was announced in Japan and revealed in the Japanese Pokemon anime Twitter than Satoshi (English name Ash) has just won the Alola League Championship. This has happened in the Japanese TV programmings and this will be shown in America with the English Dub at Disney XD channel. This is the first Ash has ever won a champion ship; in the past, Ash had his share of defeats and even came up as a runner up in the previous region in Kalos.

In case you missed it, Nintendo released a Pokemon Direct game news in regards to the game Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. I am not going to talk about every single detail, but I will tell you the biggest highlights in the trailer provided. Pokemon Sword and Shield will be the 8th generation of Pokemon and players will take part of the adventure in the Galar Region. The game will be coming out this year in November for the Nintendo Switch. In this trailer, we are given new battle mechanics such as Dynamaxing and raid battles. In Dynamaxing, trainers will be able to send out their Pokemon as giants in which will increase a Pokemon’s power. Unfortunately, the transformation will only lasts for three turns in one battler. In raid battles, you can team up with other players and work together to catch powerful Pokemon similar to Pokemon Go. There is also new characters in this game such as the Pokemon Champion named Leon and he has younger brother who will also be your rival; his name is Hop. The professor in this game is named Professor Magnolia and her granddaughter is Sonia.

Pokemon fans, I hope you brought your Poke balls because The Pokemon Company International has four major announcements for you trainers. In a series of tweets, we’ll be getting some awesome projects such as neat features for Pokemon Go, Detective Pikachu and a Pokemon game.

Based on the 3DS spinoff and also based on the Warner Bros live action movie, the game Detective Pikachu is heading towards the Nintendo Switch. According to the Pokemon website, the new Switch version will have a new entry that is different the 3DS version. Originally in the 3DS, Detective Pikachu ended with a cliffhanger. If you have a Switch and you want to see the game’s conclusion, get ready to save your money. There is no further details yet.
2. Pokemon Home
With so many Pokemon in video games, it’s hard to keep track on what you have and where to keep them. It’s been announced that there is plans of a cloud service called Pokemon Home where trainers can store Pokemon and manage their collection through an app. According to the website, Pokemon Home will be available to use on iOS and Android devices. You can use the service on Pokemon titles like Pokemon Go, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield and even Pokemon Bank.
3. Pokemon Sleep
Similar to the walking GPS game Pokemon Go, Pokemon Sleep is going to be a new app game where the game will detect your sleep patterns. Based on the tweets, you will be able to interact with Pokemon through sleeping and waking up instead of walking around and there will be a device similar to Pokemon Go Plus.
Pokemon Home and Pokemon Sleep will be available in mobile devices in 2020.

I love this gif.
It’s not going to be a review, but more like an experience I want to share. It’s going to be a short post.
Going to the movies is my favorite hobby especially since I live near my local theaters. On Wednesday last week, I went to see the movie Detective Pikachu by myself. The movie theaters gave an exclusive Pokemon trading card pack which has two cards. Surprisingly, when I went to find a seat, there was nobody here. In a weird way, I thought it was cool. I felt like I owned this entire place to myself. I truly felt like I was a king like T’challa in Black Panther. All hail the king. The cards I got was a Pikachu card and a Jigglypuff card. The movie itself was actually pretty good. I like Ryan Reynolds voice of Pikachu and seeing Pikachu in live action is so cute. I wish I could hug him but then I might end up getting electrocuted. I would recommend this movie to anyone who still loves Pokemon. This movie gave me vibes and flashbacks from Pokemon: The First Movie.
Having the whole room to myself was an awesome experience in my opinion. Have you ever had the whole place to yourself?
Today is Pokemon Day and what better way to start the day with an exciting new game! Nintendo unveiled the 8th generation Pokemon game and the game(s) is called Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. These two games will be on the Nintendo Switch similar to Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. It’s only a bit of footage, but we got to see the first look on the starter Pokemon. The grass type Pokemon is Grookey, the fire type is named Scorbunny and the water type Pokemon is Sobble.
The game is expected to come out in late 2019 for Switch,
