The Pokemon Company International has shared details about the first three episodes of the last arc for Ash, Pikachu, and their friends in the Pokemon anime series, and Misty and Brock are back.

The first one of these episodes is titled “The Wind of Beginning.” It sees Ash and Pikachu encountering the wounded legendary pokemon Latias while out on their adventures. In the second episode of the Pokémon, titled “Ash vs. Misty! Duel on the coast,” Ash will compete in a fishing duel against his friend and former travel companion, Misty. “Brock and Cilan, and the Witch of the Forest” is the name of the third episode. As the title suggest, it will feature Brock, Ash’s original travel companion along with Misty in the original series, and Cilan, who joined Ash alongside Iris in the anime adaptation of the Black & White generation of Pokemon.

The opening song for this arc has been revealed as “Aim to Be a Pokemon Master -with my friends-,” a remake of the original Japanese opening theme for the initial 1997 anime series. The animation accompanying the music track will highlight Ash and Pikachu’s 25-year long journey.
