Following the release of the Pocket Monster trailer last September, many fans have noticed that Ash got a new friend on his side. The new protagonist is Gou and will join Ash in his new journey.
Looking at Gou’s appearance, no one can exactly tell Gou’s gender. Gou features unique body shape and facial attributes that even us can’t tell if it is a boy or girl. But thanks to the recent interview with Gou’s voice actor that clarified the confusions of the fans.

According to the voice actor, Gou’s appearance was not an accident and it was designed to look like a boy or a girl, similar to Blanche of Pokemon Go which was revealed recently before the arrival of Team GO Rocket boss Giovanni.
