Ash wears a new outfit which is different than his previous outfits. He wears a white and blue striped short sleeved loose collared shirt, brown capris with red outlines with baggy pockets and red folded sleeves at the edge of his capris and shades of blue sneakers. His hat is red and black and the Poké Ball design is white and wears a silver Z-Ring on his left wrist.
Since entering the Alola region, Ash is shown to be far more enthusiastic than he did in the Kalos region while at the same time kept his determination and his love for Pokemon. While Ash does retain his competence and experience, not getting upset over losing the Trial Challenges and defeating multiple Pokemon at the same time, he displays a considerably more childish and hyperactive demeanor.
