The latest episode of the Pokemon XY anime has just aired in Japan, and it introduces a new recurring character could change the line-up of Ash’s travel team.

In episode 72, we meet Shota, a new trainer who has so far revealed Bagon and Treecko on his team.

According to Serebii, Shota takes both his wins and losses with grace.

“After losing to Clemont, he noted about not being upset about losing the match as he has gained experience from it, proving that he is willing to do as much as he can to win, despite his inexperience,” read the character description.

Shota’s Pokemon can also be seen in the new opening animation for the Pokemon XY anime.

“Mad-Paced Getter” ultimately replaced “Mega V (Volt)” in episode 55 of the anime.

According to Bulbapedia , Shota is one of the characters shown in the new opening sequence alongside others like Ramos, Valerie, Olympia and Alain.

A prevailing rumor is that given his interactions with Clemont, Shota could replace the Gym Leaders as a new companion of Ash.

According to a recent update by Serebii, the latest episode of the Pokemon XY anime showed a new opening sequence which depicted two new Pokemon that are expected to join the team of protagonists.

“During the latest intro of the anime and following on from the recent ending, an Eevee was seen,”  wrote  Serebii.

“This Eevee has been shown to be observed by Serena and participate in Pokemon Showcases.” In addition, the intro also showed a Noibat, which Serebii believes will join Ash’s team in the near future.

“During the latest intro of the anime, and following on from the recent ending, a Noibat was seen,”  said  Serebii.

“This Noibat appears to be caught by Ash and in one scene of the intro, has trouble keeping flight.”
