The new opening for the Pokémon Master Journeys anime appears to have a reference to Eren Jaeger and the Colossal Titan from Shingeki no Kyojin.
On March 4, episode 1187 of the anime of Pokemonand as it happens from time to time, it was accompanied by a new opening. This installment is part of Pokemon Master Journeys: The Serieswhich is the most recent season, and some fans saw a possible reference to the Serie from Shingeki no Kyojinor Attack on Titan. It is a scene that appears between seconds 0:55 and 0:56, where Go he is looking into the distance.
In front of him is the impressive Regigigasbut colossal in size. The point is that the way it is Go and in which this pocket monster appears recalls the classic art of Eren jaeger in front of colossal titan at wall mary. This illustration has had countless tributes and parodies over the years. The sequence that follows, with Ash Ketchum surrounded by flames, increases the similarity of said scene.

Only who is he seeing? Ash at that moment it is Gigantamax Charizard. It would not be strange if it is really a tribute from the team in charge of the anime, OLMto Shingeki no Kyojin. since a long time it’s known that among its animators there are fans of the animated adaptation of Hajime Isayama. The episode of Pokemon Master Journeys where this happens is Mitchaku! Dande no Supesharu Torēningu!!or Accession! Dande’s Special Training!!
It’s not available outside of Japan yet, so it’s going to be a while before we see it. The song that is heard is a new version of One, Two, Threeknown in the Land of the Rising Sun as 1•2•3. It is sung by Rika Matsumotowhich gives voice to Ash Ketchumand daiki yamashitawhich does the same with Go. Apparently it is the fourth arrangement of the original melody and was made by Hidekazu Tanaka. Wow, they took advantage of it!
While Pokemon Master Journeys it’s just one of the seasons of the pocket monsters anime and the story will continue as long as their games exist, in the case of Shingeki no Kyojin his days are numbered. the last season already has a date for the final episode. However, it is possible that the animated adaptation don’t end there and are saving some episodes for something else. But this information is far from official.
We will see how long it takes to locate the episodes of Pokemon Master Journeys with the new opening. Thanks to @Quagma9710 by The advertisement.
