Aipom is a type of monkey that spends most of its time in the trees. It uses its tail to swing from tree to tree, picking fruit, and handling other objects.

When [[Ash Ketchum|Ash's]] hat was taken away by the tail of a wild Aipom, Ash started to chase the Aipom. Aipom is a very cheeky [[Pokémon]], just like a monkey. Aipom likes to take [[Ash Ketchum|Ash's]] cap, which makes [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] very annoyed. When Aipom got experienced in the [[Pokémon Contest]] as an audience, and it got inspired by it. Sometimes when [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] uses Aipom, Aipom will use his power like in a contest, for example, the move [[Swift]].
 
 
When Ash decided to leave his home in [[Kanto]] and board the ship to [[Sinnoh]], he originally wanted to take only [[Pikachu]] with him. But Aipom tagged along and then traveled to [[Sinnoh]] with him.
 
 
When [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] is training his Aipom together with [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn's]] [[Buizel]], Aipom is distracted by the [[Buizel|Buizel's]] move and gets inspired by the move. On the other hand, [[Buizel]] wanted to get stronger, in a way other than competing in a contest. After talking to [[Zoey]], Ash and Dawn decided to trade Aipom and [[Buizel]]. Now, [[Dawn]] has an Aipom, which has already evolved into an [[Ambipom]].
