Pokémon Journeys’ Masters Eight Match of the World Coronation Sequence is the place the most effective of the most effective will compete for the title of Monarch, a.ok.a. the world’s (official) strongest coach. Sadly, because of Ash Ketchum’s standing as the principle character whose dream is to battle Leon, the finest of the most effective of the most effective received’t be squaring off on this event.
Leon, the Champion of the Galar Area, is the reigning Monarch of the World Coronation Sequence – having received the earlier 12 months’s event with a victory over Lance. Because the reigning Monarch, Leon retained the primary seed all through the whole lot of this 12 months’s event. He’s by no means misplaced an official battle and led off this 12 months’s Masters Eight Match with a convincing victory over a helpless Alain.
It is nearly a criminal offense towards humanity that the Masters Eight’s prime two seeds received’t be dealing with off on this 12 months’s event. On opposing sides of the bracket, the one place they could possibly be paired up is within the Finals, and Cynthia is poised to inexplicably lose to Ash after she does away with Iris and the younger Ketchum plot armors his option to a victory over Steven. In a sequence the place he’s not the principle character, Ash would by no means get previous Steven, not to mention Cynthia. But as a result of his need to face Leon is the entire level of the Pokémon Journeys anime, Ash has the writing employees on his aspect for the primary time ever — and he’s by no means wanted it greater than he’ll towards Cynthia.
