Pokémon reveals the advice Ash’s father gave him a long time ago

Pokémon Coco is the most recent film to join the franchise, and fans are eager for this jungle adventure to come to the side of the country after its grand premiere in Japan. The film, which was released on Christmas Day in Japan, has since shared some very interesting details with fans about its lead. And thanks to a certain novel appearance of the film, fans learned a bit of advice that Ash got from … his father ?!

Yes that’s right! It seems that Ash Ketchum does know who the father is, and the boy recalls advice he received from his old husband. Earlier this month, fans were told by Pokémon Coco director Tetsuo Yajima who would connect Ash’s father in his story, and that’s because our hero got good advice from his doll.

According to the filming of the movie, Ash is having a brief conversation with Coco about his father. The moment comes when Ash tries to connect with Coco when it comes to dads, because the newcomer is in conflict with Zarude, his adoptive father. There, Ash shares the wise words his father gave him after local kids 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, it would say to me, ‘The card with your goals is inside you. If you give up now then your dreams will does not come true. ‘”(via DogasuRugsak)

Clearly, Ash’s dad knew how to inspire, because this quote is what Ash needs. The boy did not give up his dream of becoming a Pokémon 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 these words first hand!
