Head-canon: Goh is trans???

Hello everyone! Today, I have something a little different for y’all. I hope you enjoy!

By now, most of us Pokémon fans have seen the newly dubbed Pokémon Journeys series on Netflix. Goh and Ash become research fellows for Professor Cerise’s new lab, and they go on adventures. But what you probably didn’t know is that there’s actually evidence that Goh might be… trans?

Anime doesn’t usually put blushing on males, now does it!?!?

I first got the idea to make this when I read something in the Wiki: “Goh is a skinny young boy that has a slightly androgynous appearance.”

Not much, but enough to get me thinking. Which is when I found articles supporting this idea, and fan fiction like this.

You get a photo of Goh! And you get a photo of Goh! You all get photos of Goh!!! (What can I say, he’s cute)

This article thinks he’s gay. I’m basically using the same evidence here to say he’s trans. Or maybe he’s trans AND gay? (We’ve all seen how he acts when Ash is around.)


In the first episode, he’s shown as a little kid. They use “he/him” pronouns for him. And that might discourage some people, but there are kids who come out early. Heck, I have a friend who’s been NB since grade three! Unfortunately, my beautiful head-canon train was stopped at this article. Or at least, I thought it was.

But wait! There’s more! If you read that article I just posted a link for, it’s talking about Goh not being NON-BINARY. There’s a big difference. So, just because Goh isn’t an enby doesn’t mean he can’t be trans.

And look at this!

Okay, I may sound like a desperate fan going out on a limb here, but that’s only because that’s exactly what I’m doing. Kind of.

So what do you guys think? Do you agree that he might be trans? Do you think I’m an absolute idiot? Or are you just completely bewildered that I managed to dig up this many articles on this topic? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see y’all next time. Bye!
