‘Pocket Monsters’ Anime Officially Reveals Gou and New Composer

Following a leak on Friday, Pokemon has officially revealed the new Pocket Monsters poster and character designs.

 

Ash’s traveling companion is named Gou, a young boy who is just starting his Pokemon journey. His goal is to capture every Pokemon, including the Mythical Pokemon Mew, who he saw when he was a child. Gou usually has a calm demeanor but can also get intense. His Scorbunny is good at using attacks that involve kicking. Gou will be voiced by Daiki Yamashita.

In terms of the show’s staff, the most surprising change is that legendary composer Shinji Miyazaki will no longer be composing the music. He has written the score since the first episode in 1997, including the films. Perhaps he wanted to retire? Yuuki Hayashi will be taking over for him.

The first Pocket Monsters episode will air as a one-hour special on November 17th. We should get more information after this week’s episode.

    Gou’s Dream is to catch all the Pokémon! He especially wants to catch Mew apparently! Do you think he can catch the rarest MYTHICAL Pokémon. Barely anybody in the anime catches a Mythical! And its the Rarest! How is he gonna catch that! As shown in:

    The rooms seem to be like the old games where it’s just a box surrounded by void.

    I assume they'll call him Professor Sakura in English
    Sakuragi just means Sakura Tree, which obviously doesn't sound as good of a name in English...

    So I assume the Ash's story will be rebooted, right? That would be cool like other Pokemon series. #SaltAlert

    considering the big tower in the background, the seaside city type setting, and the fact the galar region is based on the UK, i wonder if this'll be there version of blackpool hahaha
