Pokemon Coco is the last film to join the franchise, and fans are eager for this jungle adventure to come ashore after the big premiere in Japan. The film, which was released in Japan on Christmas Day, has since shared very exciting details with fans about the leaders. And thanks to a certain novel improvement of the film, fans have learned some advice that Ash received from … his father ?!
Yes that is correct! It seems that Ash Ketchum knows who his father is, and the boy remembers some advice he received from his old husband. Earlier this month, fans were told by Pokemon Coco director Tetsuo Yajima that Ash’s father wanted to commit to the story, and that̵
According to the film’s novelization, Ash has a brief conversation with Coco about his father. The moment comes when Ash tries to relate to Coco when it comes to dads, since the newcomer is in conflict with Zarude, his adoptive father. This is where Ash shares the wise words his father gave him after some local children laughed at his dreams.
“When I was little, I would be laughed at by my friends because of my dreams. And when I started sucking my dad, I would say this to myself: ‘The map of your goals is inside you. If you give up now then your dreams will not come true. ‘”(via DogasuBackpack)
It was clear that Ash’s dad knew how to inspire, as this quote is what Ash needed. The boy has not given up on the dream of becoming a Pokemon Master, and his father seems to have pushed Ash in that direction. Now the only thing fans need is to meet the man and hear those words first hand!
