The next clip shows the duo reuniting with Professor Oak at his Pokemon laboratory, where Ash happens upon a Bulbasaur and Squirtle who appear to be waiting for another young Pokemon trainer starting their Pokemon journey to claim one of them as their Starter.

Fans also get a glimpse of Ash reuniting with a bunch of his team members from different regions, like Charizard, Bayleaf, Pignite, Bulbasaur and Quilava. There’s also a fun shot of all of the Flying-types that Ash has caught from different regions interacting with one another.

To cap off the trailer, fans get the reveal that Gary Oak, Ash’s long-time friend and rival, will make one final appearance in the anime alongside his grandfather. While Gary recently appeared in the Pokemon Journeys anime series, it’s nice to see ‘Aim to be a Pokemon Master’ will close his Pokemon adventure as well.

While Team Rocket did not make an appearance during the preview, it wouldn’t be surprising if they appeared one final time as well, despite an earlier episode showing the villainous team go their separate ways.

All in all, it seems the final episode of the miniseries is shaping up to be a poetic way to conclude Ash’s journey once and for all, as he returns home for the final time.
