Pokemon Journeys is setting the stage for the anime’s final climax, and it has given Goh quite the critical status update in his trials for the Project Mew team! The newest iteration has been inching towards its final moments as fans have seen Ash Ketchum quickly rising through the ranks of the World Coronation Series to become one of the top trainers in the world. But as Ash now waits on the final tournament, the series has shifted its focus back to Goh as he gets ready to take on some of his final trials in order to qualify for the Project Mew chaser team.
Goh has already taken on a number of tough trials in the hopes of becoming one of the chasers on the Project Mew team, but it seems like the competition will be winding up in the coming episodes as the anime gets closer to its end. The newest episode of the series brought Goh through one of his toughest trials yet as he had to survive a battle royale against other Project Mew hopefuls, but a status update on the exams has revealed that he’s much further away from his dream than he’d hoped. He’s ranked seventh out of the final eight potential hopefuls.
Episode 110 of Pokemon Journeys reunited Goh with his rival Horace as they worked their way through a battle royal, and ultimately Horace was crowned the final victor. Goh was able to earn some medals from this effort and coming in second place, however, but he can’t celebrate for too long. It’s then revealed that only those with more than four medals can continue through to the final trials, and while Goh has seven and can continue, he’s actually seventh out of the final eight hopefuls continuing through.
He needs to make one of the final three slots to become a chaser on the Project Mew team, but that seems far and away from now with someone like Gary Oak leading the way with 12 medals. But at the same time, it’s not that hard to catch up as Goh has seven and is only in seventh place because so many others ahead of him have eight or nine. It’s not too wide of a gap to make up for, so he still has a chance if he works hard from here on out.
