For anyone who is a fan of both League of Legends and the popular anime title Pokemon, the past 1 month has been really emotional because they have witnessed the 2 most emotional and historical championships.
DRX made history at Worlds 2022 as they came a long way from the LCK Regional Qualifiers all the way to the Championship. The Blue Dragon team has never been appreciated, even it is considered that DRX is the weakest of the 8 LCK – LPL teams, but that is nothing compared to their efforts.
DRX Deft – DRX’s eldest brother has waited 10 years for this Championship and it is also the last title to complete the collection that Deft has worked on all his career. On the journey to this meaningful championship, DRX had to overcome very strong teams such as EDG (Former World Champion 2022), GEN (LCK Champion), T1 (3 times World Championship Champion).
Just recently, fans of the Pokemon anime title witnessed another historic victory. After 25 years of diligently cultivating himself, the boy Ash Ketchum – the main character of the Pokémon work, has finally been crowned the world champion.
Just like DRX’s journey at Worlds, in the final match against Leon, Ash’s Pikachu brilliantly defeated the opponent’s Charizard. This is a historic feat because Ash’s previous championships (in the Orange Islands and Alola Islands) were not really appreciated.
When comparing these two victories, it is not difficult for the audience to see a lot of interesting similarities between Deft and Ash Ketchum. Winning Worlds 2022 is the title Deft has been waiting for and trying for 10 years in his professional career, and Ash Ketchum’s World Championship is also the result of 25 years of hard work of this character.
Moreover, this can be said to be the most meaningful championship of both. Deft and Ash have both been crowned champions, but nothing will be as emotional as the world championship. Not to mention, Deft and Ash are also similar in that they both failed many times and faced very strong opponents before standing on top of the world.
Besides, a typical detail discovered by fans is that both receive the strength of friendship to win. It is the unity and efforts of all team members that DRX can defeat T1. Likewise, before delivering the decisive blow, Pikachu also receives the support of Ash as well as of his Pokémon friends who have been and are his teammates.
Deft and Ash Ketchum both deserve recognition for their efforts towards eventual success. Both are typical examples of relentless efforts, combined with the help of the best teammates to bring the sweetest results.
