Pokemon anime fans are curious about the origins of the recently revealed main characters for the Paldea seasons – especially knowing that Ash Ketchum will no longer be the main character for new episodes.

One of the perennial jokes of the Pokémon anime is the lack of aging that the main characters suffer. Despite the show’s twenty-five-year run, and an obvious amount of time throughout the many seasons, Ash Ketchum and his friends have remained unchanged—appearing somewhere between 10 and 13.

But with the recent announcement that Ash’s journey will be coming to an end, many are speculating about Ash after he grows up. This has ranged from theories about Ash’s future profession, to who he might end up falling in love with and raising a family with.

Additionally, the reveal of the new Pokémon anime protagonists has supported the possibility that Ash and Serena will eventually end up getting married.

Pokemon anime fans are convinced that Ash will end up with a daughter

According to a Twitter post by MasterLeytrxthe newly revealed female protagonist for the upcoming Pokémon anime seasons set in the Paldea region could be Ash and Serena’s daughter.

The post reads: “New Pokemon Protagonist: – Rika (in JP), same name as Ash’s (Satoshi’s) JP VA – From the Kanto region – Refuses to talk about her family, keeps her family’s name a secret – Black hair, blue eyes – Hair Clip is the same symbol as Ash’s Kanto hat. Ash and Serena’s daughter confirmed?!”

The post is followed by another comment from MasterLeytrx which changes the new protagonist’s name to “Riko” instead of “Rika”.

Pokemon anime fans in the comments have their own theories, with one saying “It would be funny if Ash is confirmed to be her father right away and the mother is kept a secret for 24 years.” while another adds, “If this theory is true, does that mean this anime takes place in the future?”

Other commentators throw out the possibility that the new protagonist is the daughter of Team Rocket’s James, as she has a similar shade of blue in her hair.
