The final episode of the Pokemon anime’s English dub had longtime Ash Ketchum voice actor Sarah Natochenny a little emotional.

Ash Ketchum’s time in the Pokemon spotlight officially came to an end earlier this year, with most fans having already moved onto the new series starring Roy and Liko. However, the English dub of Ash’s final episode has only recently hit Netflix, and there’s no surprise that it was a pretty sad time for voice actor Sarah Natochenny, who was responsible for the voice behind Ash Ketchum that a lot of you will have grown up with.

To mark the moment in which Ash’s final episode hit the platform, Natochenny shared her emotional reaction to seeing the freshly dubbed final scene of the Pokemon anime as it was performed in the studio a few months ago. Natochenny shared the clip via her personal Twitter account (thanks Nintendo Life), in which you can see her break down in tears now that her 17 year stint as Ash Ketchum is at an end.

This was just the fresh dub too, and Natochenny says that she has “no idea if [she] can watch it all now” combined with the music and effects included in the actual episode itself. She’s also been joined by original Ash Ketchum voice actor Veronica Taylor, who has also tweeted out a lovely little tribute to the perpetual 10 year old’s first episode to mark the end of his time in the Pomemon anime. In the tweet, Taylor says that her time as Ash was an “honor” and that all Pokemon fans should “strive to be our very best.”

Of course, both voice actors have been treated with nothing but love from Pokemon fans, with many taking the opportunity to describe how much their performances over the years have meant to them growing up. This also means that with the recent release of this final episode, Ash Ketchum is gone for good, and now we have a new generation of Pokemon protagonists to get used to, for better or for worse.
