Ange (アオイ Aoi) is a boy who lives in Sinnoh. He was first seen in the episode Camping It Up!, when Pokabu, Brock, and Dawn, attended a Week-Long Summer School program for Pokémon Trainers. He serves as the tomboyish rival/friend for Ash, even though he develops a friendship on him later on.
Ange is a tomboyish, hotheaded boy who hates to be downed on or looked upon as weak. He is very confident with his skill, which often leads to increasingly embarrassing situations. He dresses up in boyish-like clothes, which confuses Ash, until he points out that he's a boy. He has short, almost uncombed blue hair. Angie is mostly seen wearing an over-sized, long sleeve green shirt with a blue collar, with green sweat pants with a single white stripe coming down the side of the legs.
A way that showed his hotheaded nature was when he would constantly get into fights with Ash, and his temporary Pokémon, Monferno.
He showed his confident side by testing Monferno, telling it to hit him with Ember and Mach Punch. While doing so he dodged the practice attacks and taunted Monferno, sparking frustration. The result was that it's power grew, and it beat her up to the point of bruises, which he didn't mind.
- It has been hinted by some fans that Ange developed a friendship on Ash when he saved him from falling. He complemented him and he started to blush. Although the crush was actually hinted in the previous episode when Ash grabbed his hand saving her from being pulled into the rumored Nether-World by a Duskull. Angie told him to let go before he got pulled in too,to which Ash replied "I'm never going to let go, even if that means forever!" stunning Ange as he repeated the last word "forever" the actual implications of what he said sinking in. Later on in a later episode , in which Ash and friends help Ange catch a loose Lickilicky in his hometown, at the end of the episode as soon as Ash and the others are out of hearing range, Ange's parents confirm his friendship stating quite a few things about his behavior since trainer school among other things leading to higher and higher levels of embarrassment that makes him absolutely flustered at his parents saying "AH! You guys cant just go saying things like that!!".
- He stated that he never started his Pokémon Journal.
- In the episode "Up Close And Personable", Ange wore a boy shorts bottom.
