Ash’s journey to become a Pokémon champion was full of surprises, but nothing could have prepared him or his fans for the astonishing twist involving his Dracovish. This unique Pokémon, created by combining two fossils, stood out with its distinctive appearance and powerful moves. Ash’s Dracovish became a vital member of his team, impressively battling tough opponents throughout the World Coronation Series’ Masters’ Eight tournament.
However, it was during Ash’s match against the formidable Leon that Dracovish revealed an unprecedented ability. Struck by Leon’s Dragapult’s Dragon Dart attack, Dracovish reacted in an unexpected manner. The spikes on its tail, previously unseen, started glowing and emanating energy. Seizing the opportunity, Dracovish used these newfound energy spikes to grip onto Dragapult and exert crushing force. This bewildering feat astonished the spectators, including renowned figures like Cynthia and the announcer, who described it as an awakening.
Despite being forced to temporarily switch out due to Dragapult’s Dragon Tail attack, Dracovish maintained its awakened state when reintroduced into the battle. This proved crucial in Ash’s victory against Leon’s Rillaboom. However, after that battle, the focus shifted to the series’ final arc, leaving fans without any further explanations regarding Dracovish’s extraordinary transformation.
Cynthia offered a plausible theory, speculating that Dracovish’s ancient power was reawakened by the energy of a dragon attack. As Dracovish’s tail is derived from a Dragon Pokémon fossil, it makes sense that it would resonate strongly with draconic energies. Fossil Pokémon are often associated with primeval energy, although Dracovish’s unique rarity makes it difficult to ascertain if this is a common occurrence. Surprisingly, this awakening ability has no parallel in the games, further tantalizing fans who were left wondering about the secret behind Dracovish’s anime-exclusive transformation.
Regardless of the mystery surrounding Dracovish’s newfound power, it undeniably played a pivotal role in Ash’s final victory and his subsequent crowning as the ultimate Pokémon champion. This unexpected turn of events elevated Dracovish’s status and left an indelible mark on Ash’s legendary journey.
