We need to wait and see what they plan. It is too soon to know.But now, it might actually come true. It would be awkward and jarring for Ash to go toe to toe with Champions one saga and lose to a beginner trainer in the next. Creating a new protagonist would solve these power issues, as they can have him or her lose battles with beginner trainers without it feeling jarring because they are a newbie trainer themselves.

I found a YouTube comment that may or may not explain why:But still why haven’t ash mention he a champion
YouTube user said:I think the reason why they didn't mention Ash's Champion Title is pretty obvious: it wouldn't have made any sense from a narrative point of view. This episode was about Galar's championship, "Ash VS Leon" and how Dynamax works in battle. Why should have Ash said "Hey, you know? I'm a League Champion too!"? People always pretend events to happen in a certain way, and some things to be mentioned, but they never think how and if a mention would make sense due to the episode's narration and overall story.
They're in a bit of a tricky situation here (one that's always been an issue since the series originally had an ending with Ash's goal being set up based on that). If Ash wins the World Championship it would be hard to buy another level above that. The problem is if he enters and loses...what then? Forget the whole thing and do something else (which is basically what happened with the Badge Quest so not impossible---he never won a traditional league)? Enter the exact same tournament again next series?But rather than reverting to another badge quest as so many people thought, the writers are taking him to the next level. The problem is that there is no other level after this, assuming that he actually makes it to the finals (even if he loses there).
I am not of the opinion that this series will necessarily end when the next generation is released, though. They could easily just pull a "Season 2" and add another region to the batch, as well as a new champion that would be another contender for the finals. That is, the World Championship finals could be very far off. Why should it be treated as just another journey?
Seeing Pikachu just be a huge chonk is funny in general. That trudge Quick Attack XDIt was kinda funny to see how Pikachu tried to jump when using G-Max Volt Crash, like he usually does when using Thunderbolt, only for him to immediately fall back down due to his much heavier-than-usual body.
Yeah. Ash would become the strongest trainer in the world so the only justifiable reason to keep him around would be for him to serve as a mentor for a new trainer, who would eventually take over and become the new protagonist.Riley has a point. Once you're world champion, where do you go from there? He'd literally be the best in the world. Only way to keep Ash relevant is if he lost to Leon again.
It seemed to me he's doing bigger things than that.So I'm guessing Ash now has the goal to challenge Leon so I'm hoping he's gonna actually do Galar's gym challenge. I really want to see the leaders and for Ash to have an actually goal in this series.
I thought they were used sparingly and wisely in this episode, with them even getting a new Pokémon.Only negative was TR.
For what exactly. For being used good for once? For appearing in 5 out of 14 episodes?Only negative was TR.
There seems to be a similar vocabulary that Ash uses as Delia speaks, but it doesn't sound like Ash is bragging about being the champion so therefore he deserves the top bunk - it doesn't sound like that. It would be very unlike Ash if he bragged about him being champion to get the top bunk. Ash never used any of his status or achievements (having collected eight badges, having reached a top position in a league tournament, having met the champion, beating all frontier brains, etc) to justify that he deserves certain things. Also, it doesn't seem like Ash's character to parade around being the Alola Champion when nobody asked.Apparently he did, to Gou, while fighting over the bunk bed - as in who gets the top bed. I think that was episode 2? Subs for the episode don't show him saying that, but if you listen carefully you do hear him say it.
