Who is Liko in Pokemon Anime?
Liko is one of the two main characters in the Pokemon Horizons Anime. She is the first-ever female protagonist of the Pokemon Anime.
She is a young girl from the Paldea region. Liko has this mysterious pendant on a chain around her neck whose purpose is unknown Yet.
Liko has a hairpin similar to the Pokemon League logo, which used to be on Ash’s original hat. This similarity has caused speculation about her relationship and connection with the original Pokemon Animie’s Protagonist, Ash, and this is, for now, just a rumor among fans, and there isn’t any official word about this or the return of Ash to Pokemon. Let’s see what they have in the bag for us.
