At first, Pikachu did not obey Ash and kept running away, so Ash had to tie him up. After getting chased by a flock of [[Spearow]], Ash attempted to save Pikachu from them; seeing Ash so determined to help him, Pikachu protected Ash from the Spearow by electrocuting the entire flock. From then on, Pikachu and Ash became best friends for life.

==Biography==
  +
===Pre-Series===
  +
When Ash Ketchum was a little boy, he was enrolled in Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp where he would learn about the basics of Pokémon and being a trainer once he gets older. One day, a young girl named Serena, who was also enrolled, got lost in a forest while trying to look for her group and injured her knee after a [[Poliwag]] startled her. But at the very same moment, Ash, who was looking for the Poliwag, arrived and found her. He wrapped a clean, blue handkerchief with a PokeBall on each corner around her wounded knee to brace it. But she couldn't get herself up due to the pain, so Ash lent her his hand and helped her stand up, guiding her out of the forest and taking her back to the campsite.
   
==Plot Overview==

===Original Series===
  +
====Pokémon: Indigo League====
  +
[[File:Ash season 1.jpg|thumb|right|150px|Ash, Season 1]]
  +
[[File:AshPikachu.jpeg|thumb|left|Though they have just met Ash and Pikachu have a close bond.]]
  +
Years later after attending Pokémon Summer Camp, Ash started his Pokémon journey when he had just turned ten years old. However, he overslept and when he got to the Professor's Lab, there were no more [[Starter Pokémon]] left. The Professor had one Pokémon left, but he said the Pokémon wasn't very friendly and released Pikachu.
  +
Pikachu disliked Ash straight away and shocked him with its [[Thundershock]] attack. (This marks the start of his journey with Pikachu.) Later, Pikachu starts to trust Ash. Upon challenging various Gyms, Ash started finding traveling companions such as Brock and Misty. On his journey he regularly encountered the wacky trio [[Jessie]], [[James]] and [[Team Rocket's Meowth|Meowth]] of Team Rocket, who kept trying to (and still try to) steal Pikachu. He finished in the Top 16 in the Indigo League Competition. During his journey he participated in a Pokémon race, was involved in a movie, got sucked into cyberspace and helped with the Moltres flame. Before heading to the [[Orange Islands]], he picked up the [[GS Ball]] from [[Professor Ivy]] and bade goodbye to Brock who'd decided to stay with her.
   
  +
====Pokémon: Adventures on the Orange Islands====
  +
During this time, Ash was sent to the Orange Islands by Professor Oak on an errand to retrieve the mysterious GS Ball as the transporter cannot send it to Oak's lab. Ash found out that there were Gyms in the Orange Islands and decided to challenge them, winning a trophy for beating the Gym Leaders. During his time in the Orange Islands, Ash gained a new travelling companion in Tracey Sketchit, a "Pokemon Watcher", who observes Pokemon in their natural habitats and draws them in his sketchbook, and caught new Pokémon, [[Ash's Snorlax|Snorlax]] and [[Ash's Lapras|Lapras]], as well. He battled the Orange Crew in a style of battling much different than what he was used to. Eventually he battled Drake and became the next [[Orange League]] Champion. Upon Ash's return to his lab with the GS Ball, Professor Oak couldn't open it either and asked Ash to deliver it to his associate [[Kurt]] in [[Azalea Town]] in the [[Johto]] region, where there are also Gyms for the Johto League. Brock returned and Tracey remained behind to help Professor Oak at his lab. Team Rocket tried to catch Pikachu again, but they were stopped by [[Gary Oak|Gary]].

Ash heard that there was a region called Johto and traveled there to find and catch new Pokémon unseen in Kanto. He battled the Gym Leaders there and caught the three Starter Pokémon, just as he'd done in Kanto. Brock returned and left Professor Ivy (for unknown reasons) and Tracey remained at Professor Oak's Lab. During this season, Ash won two badges for the Johto League, by facing [[Falkner]] of the [[Violet City Gym|Violet Gym]] and [[Bugsy]] of the [[Azalea Town Gym]]. He also catches a [[Ash's Noctowl|Shiny Noctowl]], had another battle with Misty and said goodbye to [[Ash's Charizard|his Charizard]] as he left it at the [[Charicific Valley]] so it could become stronger.

[[Brock (anime)|Brock]] left to be with [[Professor Ivy]], then they met a new travelling companion named [[Tracey]]. Ash befriends and catches many other Pokémon as well.

Brock returned and Tracey left to help Oak with caring for the Pokemon at his lab. After he returned Team Rocket tries to catch Pikachu again, and is later saved by Gary.
+
Ash won three more badges, but was delayed from having his sixth Gym Battle as the Gym Leader was preoccupied with caring for an ill Electric Pokemon, Ampharos, that fueled the lighthouse's power. Determined to get his Gym Battle, Ash traveled over to [[Cianwood City]] to get the medicine needed for Ampharos. Along the way he meets [[Whitney]], [[Morty]], [[Jasmine]] and [[Chuck]], along with some new friends like [[Sakura]], an aspiring Trainer and one of the 5 Kimono Sisters and reunites with [[Casey]], whose [[Casey's Meganium|Chikorita]] evolved into Bayleef. After his Gym Battle with Chuck, Ash and his mates traveled to the [[Whirl Islands]] on Chuck's suggestion to take part in the Whirl Cup Competition, a tournament for [[Water type|Water-type]] Pokémon.

He also met [[Lance]] and stopped Team Rocket's latest scheme at the [[Lake of Rage]] and brought a [[Ash's Larvitar|Larvitar]] back to its mother. In the Johto League, he battled his old rival Gary and finally defeated him, bringing their long rivalry to an end, then fought [[Harrison]] from the [[Hoenn|Hoenn region]], who had a [[Harrison's Blaziken|Blaziken]], a Fire-Type Pokemon Ash had never seen before. To face it, Ash chose his trusty Charizard: the two Fire-Types fought fiercely, but ultimately Charizard fainted and Ash lost. (However, Charizard managed to wound Blaziken badly enough to prevent Harrison from using it in his next match, which led to his defeat.) Ash then decided to travel to the Hoenn region, but sadly both of his friends had to return home and thus would not be traveling with him this time.

===Advanced Series===
[[File:Ash_Pikachu_Taillow.jpg|thumb|left|Ash in his Hoenn Clothes.]]Deciding to start another new journey, Ash was given new clothes by his mom and set out to travel to the [[Hoenn]] region, where he met two new friends that became his travelling companions - [[May (anime)|May]], a beginner trainer who just started her journey and has no clue what she's doing, and [[Max]], her little brother who has an extensive knowledge of Pokémon that far exceeds his years. [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] also returned, stating that he finished with his errands at home. Ash also left all of his Pokémon at home so that he can start a new challenge for himself, but he didn't leave his first Pokémon: [[Pikachu]]. Ash managed to win three badges by the end of the season: One from Roxanne of the Rustburo Gym, One from a rematch with Brawly from the Dewford Gym and one from Wattson of the Mauville Gym.

Starting a new journey, Ash received new clothes from his mom, trading his familiar button-up shirt for a sleeveless hoodie, his green gloves for black ones and got a new cap. Breaking with what he'd done previously when he left for Johto, Ash left the rest of his team with Professor Oak and Tracey, intent on capturing new Pokemon in Hoenn, taking only Pikachu, his Starter, with him from home - the idea being to recapture the feeling of first leaving [[Pallet Town]] as a new Trainer. Upon arrival, he gained two new traveling companions in [[May (anime)|May]], a beginner Trainer starting out on her journey with no clue what to do, and her younger brother [[Max]], who has an extensive, impressive knowledge of Pokémon that far exceeds his years. Brock also returned, having finished his errands at home. Ash won his first three badges by the end of the season: the Stone Badge from [[Roxanne]] of the [[Rustboro City Gym|Rustboro Gym]], the Knuckle Badge from a rematch with [[Brawly]] from the [[Dewford Town Gym|Dewford Gym]], and the Dynamo Badge from [[Wattson]] of the [[Mauville City Gym|Mauville Gym]].

Ash finally challenged Gym Battles but is held up by May because May decided to be a Pokémon Coordinator. Now both of them are on their way to the challenges up ahead of them. It is also there that Ash encounters both [[Team Magma]] and [[Team Aqua]], two villainous crime syndicates occupying the Hoenn region. Ash also won the Heat Badge, from Flannery, the Balance Badge from Norman (who happens to be May and Max's father) and a feather badge from Winona.

Ash was eager to challenge more Gyms but was held up by May as she decided to be a Pokémon Coordinator. Ash encountered both [[Team Magma]] and [[Team Aqua]], two villainous crime syndicates occupying the Hoenn region for the first time. Ash also won the Heat Badge from [[Flannery]], the Balance Badge from [[Norman]], May and Max's father, and a Feather Badge from [[Winona]].

====Pokémon: Advanced Battle====
[[File:PokmonO_O.png|thumb|left]]Before winning his final badges, Ash became caught in a fight between Team Aqua and Team Magma as they unleashed the [[legendary Pokemon]] [[Groudon]] and [[Kyogre]] to reshape the world. However, thanks to Pikachu's connection with Groundon, both teams were stopped and the legendary Pokemon returned to rest. After that, he beat the terrific twosome Liza and Tate for the Mind Badge and Grand Festival winner Juan for the Rain Badge. Now entering the Hoenn League, Ash battles with all he has after he obtained all of the badges in the Hoenn region. He meets rivals, [[Morrison]] and [[Tyson (Hoenn)|Tyson]]. He fought against Tyson in the Hoenn League but lost. He has come to the 8th place in the Hoenn League. May also meets a new rival by the name of Harley who hates her guts for some reason. He returns to Kanto with Brock, May, and Max and is invited to take part in challenging the Battle Frontier leaders for their symbols, having already beaten Noland for the Knowledge Symbol.

Before winning his last few badges, Ash was caught in a clash between Teams Magma and Aqua as they unleashed the [[legendary Pokémon]] [[Groudon]] and [[Kyogre]] to reshape the world. Due to Pikachu's connection with Groundon, both teams were stopped and the legendary Pokémon returned to rest. After that, Ash beat the twin Gym Leaders [[Tate and Liza]] for the Mind Badge and Grand Festival winner [[Juan]] for the Rain Badge. Prior to entering the Hoenn League, Ash declined an offer from Professor Oak to trade in his current Pokémon with his previous captures on the grounds that his new team had earned it for themselves. He gained two new rivals in [[Morrison]] and [[Tyson (Hoenn)|Tyson]], the former he would beat, but the latter he would lose to. He placed among the Top 8.
   
===[[Pokémon: Battle Frontier|Season 9: Battle Frontier]]===
+
Returning to Kanto with Brock, May and Max, Ash was invited to partake in the [[Battle Frontier]], battling Frontier Brains for Frontier Symbols. Upon encountering the first Frontier Brain, [[Noland]] and his [[Noland's Articuno|Articuno]], Ash left his friends for a quick bit while the Factory Head took Max and Pikachu up in his airplane, telling them "I had to make a phone call." Later that night as the gang was watching Noland's Pokémon eat dinner, they speculated which of Noland's Pokémon Ash would challenge: Max guessed Venusaur, May guessed Rhyhorn, but Ash, aiming high, boldly decided on Articuno. Wondering which of Ash's Pokémon he would use against a Legendary, the gang was excited when they saw his pick; Ash had gone straight to the top and brought in the big guns, calling in Charizard from the Charicific Valley to take on the Ice/Flying-type head-to-head. Despite the Type advantage being set against it, Noland's Articuno demonstrated its ability to quickly recover after taking direct hits from Charizard's [[Flamethrower]] and [[DragonBreath]] attacks and managed to gain an advantage over the fiery behemoth with an [[Ice Beam]] to the wingtip and repeatedly combining its Ice Beam and [[Water Pulse]] attacks, the latter move being strong enough to counter Charizard's newest move: [[Overheat]]. Ultimately though, Charizard managed to withstand Articuno's [[Steel Wing]] attack, and as the Legendary Bird came in for one last strike, it grabbed its wings in midair, stopping the attack before it could connect and topped it off with its signature [[Seismic Toss]], knocking out Articuno for the win and earning Ash the Knowledge Symbol.
Ash battles all of the Frontier Brains, although he has a hard time battling the last Frontier Brain, but in the end, he won and collected all the symbols. He is even offered the chance to become a new Frontier Brain when one of them retires. However, Ash declines and soon learns of a new region filled with new Pokémon. May and Max depart and so does Brock.

Ash soon arrives in [[Sinnoh]] with Pikachu (and Aipom who snuck along).
+
Ash battled all of the remaining Frontier Brains and earned their Frontier Symbols. The last Frontier Brain however, [[Pyramid King Brandon]], proved to be more difficult for Ash to defeat; Their first official battle saw Brandon's Registeel defeating Ash's Torkoal in spite of a new move it learned. For their rematch, which would be four-on-four, Ash took a "back to your roots" approach, once again calling in Charizard but also this time bringing in [[Ash's Bulbasaur|Bulbasaur]] and [[Ash's Squirtle|Squirtle]] to reunite his trio of Kanto Starters. Putting them together with Pikachu, Ash formed a team of aces from his early days: pitting the four aces against [[Brandon's Dusclops]], [[Brandon's Ninjask|Ninjask]], [[Brandon's Solrock|Solrock]] and [[Brandon's Regice|Regice]], he finally claimed victory and the final Frontier Symbol - the [[Brave Symbol]] - completing the set and winning the Battle Frontier. After his victory, [[Scott]] offered Ash the position of Frontier Brain when one of them retired but he declined, opting instead to continue his journey. Before saying goodbye to May, Ash competed against her in the Terratta Pokemon Contest, their match ending in a tie. There was only one ribbon and they couldn't decide who to give it to. Ash had his [[Ash's Sceptile|Sceptile]] use [[Leaf Blade]] to cut the ribbon in half, choosing to split it with May before they all parted ways. Returning home, Ash met up with Gary again and saw the latter's new [[Gary's Electivire|Electivire]]. Gary informed Ash about the region of [[Sinnoh]], to which he immediately decided to travel next on his journey.
Along the way, he meets yet another new travelling companion, [[Dawn]] (who was interested in entering Super Contests). He also receives new clothes from his mother in the mail and gains yet another new rival in a trainer named [[Paul]]. Ash was rather shocked to run into Brock yet again after saying he was returning home, but welcomed his old friend on their new journeys once again. Later in the season, Ash misses meeting [[Team Galactic]] due to moving on with his journey too soon. He won a Coal Badge from Roark and a Forest Badge from Gardenia. Also, Ash encountered [[Pokemon Hunter J]] who temporarily managed to kidnap Pikachu. He also caught a [[Starly]] which evolved into [[Staravia]], a [[Turtwig]], and he adopted Paul's [[Chimchar]] by the end of the season.
 
   
===[[Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension|Season 11: DP Battle Dimension]]===
 
[[File:Ash_Puzzeled.png|thumb|left|A face view]]In this season, Ash continued battling and earning badges, while [[Dawn]] continues to earn contest ribbons, they also see [[Team Galactic]] and try to stop them from committing crimes. During this time, Ash earns up to his fifth Gym Badge. Most of the season, Ash had to wait for Gym Leader Fantina to return to her Gym in order to challenge her. Ash reunited with May during the Wallace Cup and took part as a coordinator once again (per Wallace's request). He also saw the spirit of Azelf rise out of the lake the contest was being held at. He tied with Maylene but earned a Cobble Badge from her, he won against Crasher Wake and beat Fantina for the Fen and Relic Badges. He also met Barry, his newest rival. He traded his Aipom for Dawn's Buizel, his Turtwig evolved into Grotle, and he caught a Gligar which evolved into Gliscor.

Continuing his journey in Sinnoh, Ash managed to beat Byron, winning the Mine Badge and Candice winning the Icicle Badge. Along the trip to Sunyshore City, Ash and his friends encounter International Policeman [[Looker]] and were recruited to help stop the plans of [[Team Galactic]] as the three of them were chosen to share a bond with the three Lake Spirit Pokémon. During which Brock managed to find [[Uxie]]. Managing to find Team Galactic in the middle of creating a new universe with the captive Lake Trio controlling [[Palkia]] and [[Dialga]], each freed the trio and Team Galactic was arrested while their leader vanished into the collapsing new world, causing the disbanding of Team Galactic. At the end of the season, Ash caught himself a Gible which was learning [[Draco Meteor]].

Departing for Sinnoh, Ash once again left his previous captures at Professor Oak's laboratory, with the exception of his [[Dawn's Ambipom|Aipom]] who'd snuck along. After arriving in Sinnoh by boat and reuniting with Brock, he gained yet another new traveling companion in [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]], a confident girl interested in following in her mother's footsteps as a Pokemon Coordinator. After receiving new clothes from his mother in the mail, Ash gained a new rival in a Trainer named [[Paul]]. Later in the season, Ash misses meeting [[Team Galactic]] due to moving on with his journey too soon. He won his first two Sinnoh Gym Badges: a Coal Badge from [[Roark]] and a Forest Badge from [[Gardenia]]. Ash encountered [[Pokemon Hunter J]], who temporarily kidnapped Pikachu by turning it into stone. Ash's first Sinnoh capture was a [[Starly]] which evolved into [[Staravia]], and a [[Turtwig]]. His final Sinnoh acquisition came when he adopted Paul's [[Ash's Infernape|Chimchar]] by the end of the season.

He also reunited with Jasmine from the Olivine Gym before heading to Lily-of-the-Valley. This may be the hardest and intense league he ever joined as he has many rivals to compete with and also there is a mysterious trainer who joined with a legendary Pokémon: [[Darkrai]]. He battled against most of his rivals except for [[Barry (anime)|Barry]], who battled [[Paul]] and lost, [[File:DP18.jpg|thumb|right|150px|Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Dawn and Piplup in the 13th Season.]]so Ash's next match was against Paul, the battle was intense as Paul showed Pokémon that he doesn't normally use and until the fight was only [[Electivire]] and [[Infernape]] but Ash won with Infernape's ability, Blaze. Though he faced an opponent that was hard to defeat, it is none other than the trainer with a [[Darkrai]]: [[Tobias]]. He was able to defeat Tobias' Darkrai but got a draw with Tobias' Latios. However, as Ash had no Pokémon left, he was defeated. He reached the top four in the Sinnoh League, and many people are amazed because he was the only trainer who battled against Tobias and at least defeated his Darkrai because no one was able to do so. Then afterwards he heads back home. Ash bid farewell to Dawn as she wished to continue entering contests and for the last time Brock, who now wishes to become a Pokémon doctor.
+
In this season, Ash continued battling and earning badges while Dawn continued to earn contest ribbons. They also encountered Team Galactic and tried to stop them from stealing the [[Adamant Orb]]. During this time, Ash earns his fifth Gym Badge. For most of the season, Ash had to wait for Gym Leader [[Fantina]] to return to her Gym in order to challenge her. Ash reunited with May during the Wallace Cup and took part as a coordinator once again (per Wallace's request). Late one night with Pikachu, he saw the spirit of [[Azelf (anime)|Azelf]] rise out of the lake the contest was being held at. He tied with [[Maylene]] but earned a Cobble Badge from her and defeated both [[Crasher Wake]] and Fantina for the Fen and Relic Badges. He also acquired a new rival in [[Barry (anime)|Barry]], a somewhat clumsy boy who insists on fining people. Ash acquired a few more Pokemon during this season; at the suggestion of [[Zoey]], he traded his Aipom for Dawn's [[Ash's Buizel|Buizel]], the only trade so far he hasn't reversed; his Turtwig evolved into Grotle; and he caught a [[Gligar]] which became a [[Ash's Gliscor|Gliscor]].

At home in [[Pallet Town]], Ash received new clothes and was invited along with his mother by Professor Oak to take a trip to the far away Unova Region for a scientific expedition. Upon arrival, Team Rocket (now serious and less goofy) once again tried to capture Pikachu. However, the legendary Pokemon [[Zekrom]] caused a storm that scared them away and temporarily knocked Pikachu out. Arriving at Professor Juniper's [[File:Don Battle Ash.png|thumb|right|200px|Ash and Pikachu during the Don Battle Tournament]]lab, Ash encountered a new rival named [[Trip]] (who won a battle against Pikachu as Zekrom temporarily kept Pikachu from using Electric attacks) and decided to go out on a new quest to win the Unova league. After leaving for his new journey, Ash met [[Iris (anime)|Iris]] and began travelling with her. Along the way he adopted an Oshawott that belonged to Professor Juniper and a Tepig from a Trainer who didn't want it any more. After winning his first Gym battle, Ash gained yet another new travelling companion in [[Cilan (anime)|Cilan]] (one of the three optional Gym Leaders). He also caught a very strong Snivy, which acts like the mother of his team. He has won the Trio Badge, Basic Badge and Insect Badge. As the season continues, he gets a mysterious egg and similar to the [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] series, he also gets all of the starter Pokémon in there; unlike Hoenn and Sinnoh, in which he only got a Treecko in Hoenn, and a Turtwig and Chimchar in Sinnoh.
+
Continuing his journey in Sinnoh, Ash managed to beat [[Byron]], winning the Mine Badge and [[Candice]], winning the Icicle Badge. Along the trip to [[Sunyshore City]], Ash and his friends encounter International Policeman [[Looker]] and were recruited to help stop the plans of Team Galactic as the three of them were chosen to share a bond with the three Lake Spirit Pokémon, during which Brock managed to find [[Uxie]]. Managing to find Team Galactic in the middle of creating a new universe with the captive Lake Trio controlling [[Palkia]] and [[Dialga]], Ash, Dawn and Brock freed the trio and Team Galactic was arrested while their leader vanished into the collapsing new world, effectively disbanding Team Galactic. At the end of the season, Ash caught himself a [[Ash's Gible|Gible]] which was learning [[Draco Meteor]].

Continuing on his Journey through Unova with Iris and Cilan, after they stopped Team Rocket from stealing Pokémon from the Nimbasa Pokémon Center, Ash and co. meet up with Bianca and meet the Gym Leader [[Elesa]] and meet Bianca's father. After he allowed both his daughter and Ash to continue their respective journeys, Ash battles Elesa and wins the Bolt Badge. Then he has the honor of meeting [[Alder]], the champion of the Unova League. He also saved Unova from being torn apart by [[Tornadus]], [[Thundurus]] by summoning [[Landorus]] and he had a Gym Battle with [[Clay]] after getting him some Revival Herbs. During the battle Ash's Roggenrola evolved into a Boldore and Ash won earning him the Quake Badge. After that, he helped Bianca with her newly evolved Escavailer and met Cedric Juniper. Next, he manages to catch the Krokorok that followed him as a part of his team. Finally, he had a Gym battle with [[Skyla]]. During which, his Tranquill evolved into Unfezant and managed to beat her, winning the Jet Badge fair and square. He participated in a race to the top of [[Celestial Tower]] and came in a close second losing to [[Stephan]]. He participated in the Donamite tournament and ranked Semi-finalist. He also confronted Tepig's original trainer, Suwama, during which Tepig evolved into Pignite. He also had to endure a harsh training session from [[Brycen]], which paid off as he won the Freeze Badge. His plans to go to Opelucid City were on hold as he found out the Gym was closed and had to go to Virbank City. There he battled [[Roxie]] and won his final badge, the Toxic Badge.
+
After the Team Galactic incident, Ash entered the [[Sinnoh League]] after beating [[Volkner]] and earning the Beacon Badge. He also reunited with Jasmine from the Olivine Gym before heading to Lily-of-the-Valley. Taking a different approach in this League [[AG125: Like a Meowth to a Flame|than he did in Hoenn]], Ash combined his previous captures with his current Pokemon to form well-balanced teams of new and old. The Sinnoh League was one of the hardest and most intense Leagues he ever competed in, as he had rivals Paul and Barry to compete with, and a mysterious trainer who joined with the [[Legendary Pokémon]] [[Darkrai]]. He battled against most of his rivals save for Barry, who battled Paul and lost, so Ash's next match was against Paul.
  +
[[File:DP18.jpg|thumb|left|150px|Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Dawn and Piplup in the 13th Season.]]
  +
The battle was intense as Paul showed Pokémon that he didn't normally use while Ash had reassembled his team of six from their earlier battle at [[Lake Valor]]. The fight came down to [[Paul's Electivire]] and Ash's Infernape. Despite taking heavy damage, Infernape won the match for Ash with its ability, [[Blaze]]. After defeating Paul, Ash faced an opponent other Trainers in the League dreaded to face as he was hard to defeat: the Trainer with the [[Darkrai]]: [[Tobias]]. After losing a couple of Pokemon to it, Ash was able to defeat Tobias' Darkrai with Sceptile and even knocked out [[Tobias' Latios]] with Pikachu. However, as the rest of Ash's Pokémon had fainted, he was eliminated. To this day, the Sinnoh League remains Ash's most impressive performance in a Pokemon League Tournament: he reached the Top 4 - the farthest he'd ever gotten in ''any'' Pokemon League - and was the only one of Tobias' opponents to defeat two of his Pokemon, let alone his Darkrai. After the Sinnoh League, Ash bade farewell to Dawn as she wished to continue entering contests, and also parted ways with Brock, his oldest friend and longest-running traveling companion for the final time, as Brock now wished to become a Pokémon Doctor.

At home in Pallet Town, Ash received new clothes and was invited along with his mother by Professor Oak to take a trip to the far away [[Unova|Unova region]] for a scientific expedition. Upon arrival, a more formidable Team Rocket - no longer fooling around and acting in a more serious capacity - once again tried to capture Pikachu. This was prevented by the timely intervention of [[Zekrom]], one of Unova's two Legendary Pokemon. Zekrom caused a storm that scared away Team Rocket and temporarily knocked Pikachu out. Arriving at [[Professor Juniper]]'s [[File:Don Battle Ash.png|thumb|left|200px|Ash and Pikachu during the Don Battle Tournament]]lab, Ash encountered a new rival named [[Trip]], an insolent boy with an intolerant attitude towards Trainers from Kanto. Ash battled Trip, but lost as Pikachu's Electric attacks had been temporarily disabled from the encounter with Zekrom. Ash later decided to go out on a new quest to win the [[Unova League]]. After leaving on his new journey, Ash gained new traveling companions in [[Iris (anime)|Iris]], an up-and-coming Dragon Master with keen eyesight, and [[Cilan (anime)|Cilan]], one of the three optional Gym Leaders of the [[Striaton City Gym]] who utilized Grass-Type Pokemon and also a Pokemon Connoisseur. Ash continued his inadvertent tradition of catching all three [[Starter Pokemon]] of a region, something not done since Johto: He adopted an Oshawott that had snuck away from Professor Juniper's lab and an abandoned Tepig whose Trainer no longer wanted it. Last but not least, Ash caught a very strong Snivy which acts like the mother of his team. Ash won the Trio Badge, Basic Badge and Insect Badge. As the season continued, he acquired a mysterious egg which later hatched into his [[Ash's Scraggy|Scraggy]].

Continuing on his journey through Unova with Iris and Cilan, after they stopped Team Rocket from stealing Pokémon from the Nimbasa Pokémon Center, Ash and co. met up with [[Bianca]] and encountered both the Gym Leader [[Elesa]] and [[Bianca's father]]. After he allowed both his daughter and Ash to continue their respective journeys, Ash battled Elesa and won the Bolt Badge. Then he had the honor of meeting [[Alder]], the Unova League [[Champion]].

After that he helped Bianca with her newly evolved [[Bianca's Escavailer|Escavailer]] and met [[Cedric Juniper]]. He managed to catch the [[Ash's Krookodile|Krokorok]] that followed him, adding it to his team. Finally, he had a Gym battle with [[Skyla]], duuring which his [[Tranquill]] evolved into [[Ash's Unfezant|Unfezant]] and managed to beat her, winning the Jet Badge. He participated in a race to the top of [[Celestial Tower]] and came in a close second losing to [[Stephan]], as well as the Donamite tournament and ranked Semi-finalist.

He also had to endure a harsh training session from [[Brycen]], which paid off as he won the Freeze Badge. His plans to go to [[Opelucid City]] were on hold as he found out the Gym was closed and had to go to [[Virbank City]] instead, where he battled [[Roxie]] and won his final badge, the Toxic Badge. He also met and befriended a [[Meloetta (anime)|Meloetta]] and reunited with his old friend Dawn from his time in Sinnoh and stopped Team Rocket's latest plot involving Meloetta.

Ash finally arrived at and competed in the Unova League, placing in the Top 8 as he'd done before. He made a new friend, [[N]] and learned about [[Team Plasma]] and another [[Legendary Pokémon]], [[Reshiram]]. With N's help, Ash was able to stop Team Plasma. With his adventures in Unova behind him, it was time for him to head home again: fortunately for Ash, Professor Juniper scored him boarding tickets to the Queen Decolore which traversed through the Decolore Islands. Along the way he met [[Alexa (Kalos)|Alexa]], a reporter from the [[Kalos|Kalos region]] and briefly reunited with Clair from the Blackthorn Gym to help find a [[Clair's Druddigon|Shiny Druddigon]].

[[File:Smash217anime.jpg|thumb|left|Ash in the Kalos Region]]
  +
Ash traveled to the Kalos region to compete in the [[Kalos Pokémon League|Kalos League]] and to continue his dream of becoming a Pokémon Master. He gained new traveling companions in the siblings [[Clemont (anime)|Clemont]] and [[Bonnie (anime)|Bonnie]] and later reunited with his childhood friend [[Serena (anime)|Serena]], who still remembered Ash rescuing her a long time ago and would travel with him as well. Despite being childhood friends with Serena, he had no memory of their relationship until Serena showed him the handkerchief he used to mend her knee when they were little kids in the episode, ''[[XY007: Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!|Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!]]''. Ash also caught three new Pokemon: his first Kalos capture was a [[Ash's Froakie|Froakie]] followed by a [[Fletchling]] then a [[Ash's Hawlucha|Hawlucha]]. Within the first five episodes of the season, Ash faced Alexa's sister [[Viola]], the Gym Leader of [[Santalune City]] who specialized in Bug-type Pokemon. During their battle, Ash faced difficulty against [[Viola's Surskit]], who gained an advantage over Pikachu by freezing the arena, turning it into an ice field. Ash decided that what needed improving was his Pokemon's balance, and with Alexa's help, engaged in special training designed to combat this flaw. Clemont also tried to help using one of his latest devices, but the machine backfired and exploded. In a rematch, Ash ultimately defeated Viola and claimed the Bug Badge, his first badge from a Kalos Gym. [[XY025: Climbing the Walls!|Much later]], Ash battled against the [[Cyllage City Gym]] Leader [[Grant]] and his Rock-Type Pokemon. Having seen Grant defeat Viola at the Battle Chateau, Ash sought a way to defeat Grant's Rock Tomb. When he faced Grant, this ended up becoming [[Rock Tomb Climb]], the use of which earned Ash his second Kalos Badge, the Cliff Badge. Some time later, Ash battle [[Moria]], a [[Sky Trainer]] who specializes [[Sky Battles]], and her [[Moria's Talonflame|Talonflame]]. During the battle his Fletchling evolved into a [[Ash's Fletchinder|Fletchinder]] and won. At the [[Pokémon Summer Camp]], Ash and his friends met [[Shauna (Kalos)|Shauna]], [[Trevor]], and [[Tierno]]. He later had a first-touch-battle against [[Tierno's Squirtle]] with Froakie and lost. After spending a good time at the Pokémon Summer Camp, Ash went to [[Shalour City]] and battled [[Korrina]], a Gym Leader who previously traveled with Ash and his friends in order to help her understand [[Mega Evolution]] with [[Korrina's Lucario|her Lucario]]. Despite a failed attempt of using Tierno's dancing strategy, Ash managed to win his third Kalos Badge, the Rumble Badge.

Primeape was a Pokémon that went berserk easily and originally didn't follow Ash's commands. However after Ash saved it from a fall in a fighting contest, it gained respect for Ash. After the contest, Ash decided to leave it with a trainer for more training so it could become a P1 Champion. However, it is highly unlikely Ash will return for it given he is easily distracted and forgets the obvious.

Professor Juniper gave Ash the Poké Ball for Oshawott which Ash used to obtain Oshawott. Oshawott is very affectionate towards Ash and even tries to knock Pikachu off of Ash's shoulder. It has many powerful attacks including [[Water Gun]] and [[Razor Shell]], allowing it to be a prominent member of Ash's team. Similar to [[Bayleef]], Oshawott is jealous of Pikachu's bond with Ash and even sometimes pops out of its Poké Ball to show its worth. In [[BW027]], Oshawott develops a crush on [[Iris' Emolga]].

Then, evolving from Charmeleon, Charizard didn't obey any orders that Ash gave and quite often used its flamethrower attack on Ash. However, after getting frozen in battle, Charizard started to respect Ash as Ash nursed it back to health. Since then it has been a vital powerhouse in Ash's team and has been used in several Gym, League and Frontier battles and has even held its own in battles against Entei and Articuno. It currently resides in the Charific Valley where it's doing some training.

When he found it, he saw its mouth had been tied by its past trainer who left it at the Battle Club after it lost to a [[Deerling]], making it unable to eat and so Ash helped free it and created a bond with it.

Although they didn't get along at first, Lucario teamed up with Ash in a desperate search for Pikachu at the [[Tree of Beginning]].

But just as Ash is about to use up all of his Aura, Lucario pushed Ash to safety as he doesn't want Ash to die. Before Lucario dies, he saw how Sir Aaron truly cared about it and how he was willing to sacrifice everything to save the land from the war, even if he had to seal Lucario in his staff.

==Origin==
  +
===Design===
  +
Ash's design is based on the player character from [[Generation I]], [[Red (game)|Red]].
  +
  +
===Etymology===
  +
Ash's Japanese name, ''Satoshi'', comes from '''Satoshi Tajiri, '''the creator of Pokémon. ''Ash'' may be a shortening of Satoshi and his last name, ''Ketchum'', may have come from the phrase "Gotta catch 'em all".<ref>[http://pokepassion.blogspot.com/2014/08/ash-cant-be-master.html Ash Pokémon Master]</ref>
  +
  +
==Trivia==
  +
*Ash has had 49 [[Pokémon (creature)|Pokémon]] including different evolutionary forms (78 if all Tauros are included).
  +
*Ash has caught at least one of the [[Starter Pokémon]] in every region, and has caught the main bird Pokémon that appears in that region's [[Pokédex]].
  +
**He caught [[Ash's Pidgeot|Pidgeotto]] in Kanto that later evolved into Pidgeot (Ash also almost captured a Spearow and later that same Pokemon evolved into Fearow) which he soon released to protect and lead a flock Pidgey and Pidgeotto.
  +
***It is Interesting to note that Ash must have accidentally evolved the Spearow into a Fearow a few episodes after its first appearance.
  +
**He captured a [[Shiny Pokemon|Shiny]] Noctowl in Johto.
  +
**He captured Taillow that later evolved into Swellow in Hoenn.
  +
**He captured Starly that later evolved into Staravia then Staraptor in Sinnoh.
  +
**He caught a female Pidove that evolved into Tranquill then Unfezant in Unova.
  +
**He caught a Fletchling that evolved into Flechinder in Kalos.
  +
*With the exception of the Orange League, Ash has never won a league tournament.
  +
*Ash's skin has tanned in the beginning of the [[Pokémon: Master Quest|Master Quest]] episodes from being outside in the sun all the time.
  +
*Ash is the only known trainer to have ever defeated Tobias' Darkrai.
  +
*In the Kanto region, Ash often turned his cap backwards when preparing for a battle or to capture a Pokemon. This habit wore off as time went on. However he was shown turning his cap backwards when he was battling Tobias, presumably because Tobias was arguably the strongest trainer he'd ever faced, being the only one who was capable of beating all six of his Pokemon using only two of his own. Although in the Best Wishes series, Ash is seen turning his cap backwards more often. He recently turned his hat around in [[XY003: A Battle of Aerial Mobility!|A Battle of Aerial Mobility!]] when he used Froakie to help defeat and capture Fletching.
  +
[[File:Ash hat back wards 13th season.PNG|thumb|Ash wearing his cap backwards in the 13th season, the first time in many seasons.]]
  +
*Ash has the ability to sense and control aura, as it was shown in ''[[MS008: Pokémon - Lucario and the Mystery of Mew|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'' and once again in the Diamond and Pearl episodes, "[[DP071: Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 1|Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 1]]" and "[[DP072: Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 2|Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 2]]". [[Sir Aaron|Aaron]]'s [[Lucario]] has stated that Ash's aura is the same as Aaron's, and Ash was able to use his aura to find and save [[Riolu]]. Ash only used his aura abilities when it has something to do with either Riolu or Lucario.
  +
*Ash turned 10 at the start of the series and was canonically so from seasons 1-3, though it is unknown if he actually aged. According to the narration of [[BW001: In the Shadow of Zekrom!|In the Shadow of Zekrom!]], he's still 10, although this narration is probably inaccurate, or maybe the directors have confirmed that Ash is still 10.
  +
*Ash has seen every legendary Pokémon from Kanto to Unova.
  +
*Ash is one of the default name options for the player in ''[[Pokémon Red & Blue Version|Pokémon Red and Blue]]''.
  +
*In ''Tekken 6'', there is a female character named Eleonore "Leo" Kliesen, who can be customized to look like Ash Ketchum. Coincidentally, both characters were voiced by Veronica Taylor and sounded very similar.
  +
*Almost every character in the Pokémon anime are featured in the games, such Misty (Who even appeared as a trophie in ''Super Smash Bros. Melee), ''Brock, who appeared in Pokémon Red/Blue version, Lyra (from Diamond Pearl), as a Trainer♀ in Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver version and Gary, who appeared as main rival in Pokémon Red/Blue version default named as Blue. However, the only game Ash has ever appeared was in Pokémon Puzzle League for the Nintendo 64.
  +
*According to [[XY025: Climbing the Walls!|Climbing the Walls!]], Ash's favorite move is Thunderbolt.
  +
*In [[BW001]], announcer calls Ash 10 year old.<ref>[http://pokepassion.blogspot.com/2014/06/Secret-Of-Ashs-Age.html Secret of Ash's age]</ref>.

==Origins==
+
==References==
+
{{Reflist}}
===Design origin===
 
Ash's design is based on the the player character from [[Generation I]], [[Red (game)|Red]].
 
 
===Etymology===
 
Ash's Japanese name, ''Satoshi'', comes from '''Satoshi Tajiri, '''the creator of Pokémon. ''Ash'' may be a shortening of Satoshi and his last name, ''Ketchum'', may have come from the phrase "Gotta catch 'em all".
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*Every time Ash battles and defeats a rival, he constantly loses to the next one in league tournaments, usually because his opponents are older, more experienced trainers with Pokémon that Ash has never seen or battled before.
 
*Ash has had thirty [[Pokémon]] throughout the series. (Not counting evolution and the thirty extra [[Tauros]] as one) 49 including different evolutionary forms.
 
*Ash's personality matches [[Azelf]]; the Willpower [[Pokémon]].
 
*Ash has caught at least one of the [[Starter Pokémon]] in every region, and has caught one bird [[Pokémon]] that appears in that region's [[Pokédex]].
 
**When one of Ash's friends captured the other starters, he would capture another [[Pokémon]] to fill in the missing types.
 
**He caught all of the [[Grass (type)|Grass]] type Starter Pokémon in every region he visited, the only type to do so.
 
*Ash has a different outfit in every region (Besides [[Johto]] and [[Kanto]]).
 
*Voice actor [[Veronica Taylor]] who voiced Ash also voiced [[May]] from season 6 to 8.
 
*Since the beginning of the series, Ash's skin has gotten progressively darker, perhaps due to the constant exposure to the sun, as he and his friends that their journeys with walk almost everywhere, and are normally outside.
 
*Other than the [[Orange League]] , Ash has never won a league tournament.
 
*Ash is the only known trainer to have ever defeated [[Tobias]]' [[Darkrai]]. [[Ash's Sceptile|Sceptile]] was the Pokémon that he used to accomplish this.
 
*In the Kanto region, Ash often turned his cap backwards when preparing for a battle. This habit wore off as time went on. However he was shown turning his cap backwards when he was battling Tobias, presumably because Tobias was arguably the strongest trainer he'd ever faced, being the only one who was capable of beating all six of his Pokemon using only two of his own.[[File:Ash hat back wards 13th season.PNG|thumb|Ash wearing his hat backwards in the 13th season, the first time in many seasons]]
 
*Ash is said to be 10 in Best Wishes, but he was revealed to be older than 11 in the [[Pokémon]] 3rd movie short, evident that Ash has aged a bit. It was believed that Ash has been on his journey for possibly approximately three years. The answer to this age problem is currently unknown.
 
*Ash has the ability to sense and control aura, as it was shown in [[MS008: Pokémon - Lucario and the Mystery of Mew|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]] and once again in an episode of DP Galactic Battles. [[Sir Aaron|Aaron]] 's [[Lucario]] has stated that Ash's aura is the same as Aaron's, and Ash was able to use his aura to find and save [[Riolu]]. Ash only used his aura abilities when it has something to do with either [[Riolu]] or [[Lucario]].
 
**This might mean that his spiritual Pokémon is/are [[Riolu]] and/or [[Lucario]]. Ironically, many fans speculate that those are the Pokémon that represent fighting spirit, much like how Ash is never willing to give up. This may also be why [[Azelf]], the Being of Willpower, chose to bind its heart with him.
 
*Ash is shown to be very oblivious to practically any girl who develops feelings for him. This has been pointed out numerous times in the anime specifically by his female companions. It is believed by fans that even his female companions have also developed feelings for Ash as well, though they never admit it or because he is too oblivious to realize this.
 
*Ash is also shown to not understand the idea or concept of love between Pokémon as he claims that they like each other all the time and that he does not know what the "big deal" is.
 
*[[Ash's Pikachu]] and his [[Unova]] [[Starter Pokémon]] have never been rotated, only [[Unfezant]], [[Swadloon]], [[Scraggy]], [[Palpitoad]], and [[Boldore]].
 
*Ash seems to catch less Pokémon when he is traveling with a new trainer.
 
**While traveling with May he caught 6 Pokémon, and while traveling with Dawn he caught 5 and obtained Buizel by trading with Dawn.
 
**While traveling with Misty he caught 18 Pokémon not counting Pikachu which he obtained from [[Professor Oak]] , and so far while traveling with Cilan and Iris he has caught 8 Pokémon and hatched [[Scraggy]] from an egg.
 
*Ash has had a rival throughout his whole journey through every region but the [[Hoenn]] region.
 
**Through the Kanto and Johto regions his rival was [[Gary Oak]], through the Sinnoh region his rival was [[Paul]], and in the Unova region his rival is [[Trip]].
 
*Ash has the most Types of any trainer in the series, having every type at least once, except for [[Steel Pokémon|Steel]], [[Ghost Pokémon|Ghost]] and [[Psychic Pokémon|Psychic]].
 
**Although, he did befriend a [[Haunter]], a Ghost type in Kanto, but left it with [[Sabrina]].
 
*Ash has seen every legendary Pokémon from Kanto to Sinnoh.
 
*Ash is one of the default name options for the player in [[Pokémon Red and Blue]].
 
*Ash is a great battler, but doesn't do well at battles relating to his or his opponent's Pokémon's gender. An example is when he used [[Snivy]] against [[Elesa's Emolga]], which was confirmed female when her [[Attract]] immobilized [[Palpitoad]], resulting in his defeat. Ash had forgotten that Snivy was also female, realizing his mistake only after Snivy's Attract failed to affect Emolga, again resulting in Snivy's defeat.
 
*In the French version, Ash is called Sacha.
 
*So far all of Ash's Fire-type Pokémon have been abandoned except for his [[Torkoal]] and [[Quilava]].
 
*In every region (besides Johto and Kanto) the first pokemon that Ash captures is a Flying type.

Ash Ketchum (Japanese: サトシ Satoshi) is the main protagonist of the Pokémon anime series who has always dreamed of becoming a Pokémon Master. As soon as he turned ten years old, he rushed to Professor Oak's Laboratory to get his first Pokémon. He is the first character to be introduced in the series. Originally wanting to choose Squirtle, Ash ended up getting the Pokémon Pikachu, and left on his journey. It is currently unknown how old he is as of the latest episode, although he was canonically 10 from seasons 1-3. Though it is said in the first episode of the Best Wishes series (on the TV) that Ash is ten. Which means that, yes, the directors have confirmed that Ash is still 10.[1]

At first, Pikachu did not obey Ash and kept running away, so Ash had to tie him up. After getting chased by a flock of Spearow, Ash attempted to save Pikachu from them; seeing Ash so determined to help him, Pikachu protected Ash from the Spearow by electrocuting the entire flock. From then on, Pikachu and Ash became best friends for life. As a completely unskilled trainer, Ash started his adventure while meeting his friends Misty and Brock and capturing new Pokémon.

Ash eventually defeated all the Gym Leaders in Kanto, allowing him to enter in the Pokémon League. Since then, he has continued to travel, make new friends such as Tracey, May, Max, Dawn, Iris and Cilan, challenging all Gym Leaders and capturing new Pokémon while still following his goal of becoming a Pokémon Master. Since this goal is so close to his heart, he sometimes acts a bit rash and rushes to the next battle he can as fast as possible. Ash is currently traveling in the Kalos region, with his new friends Bonnie, Clemont and his old childhood friend Serena. Ash's name in the Japanese version of the anime is Satoshi, likely after Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of Pokémon. It's unknown who Ash's father is, but according to 'Pokémon Live!', his mother dated Giovanni and was in his gang but took a better route in life when she met Ash's father.

BiographyEdit

Pre-SeriesEdit

When Ash Ketchum was a little boy, he was enrolled in Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp where he would learn about the basics of Pokémon and being a trainer once he gets older. One day, a young girl named Serena, who was also enrolled, got lost in a forest while trying to look for her group and injured her knee after a Poliwag startled her. But at the very same moment, Ash, who was looking for the Poliwag, arrived and found her. He wrapped a clean, blue handkerchief with a PokeBall on each corner around her wounded knee to brace it. But she couldn't get herself up due to the pain, so Ash lent her his hand and helped her stand up, guiding her out of the forest and taking her back to the campsite.

Original SeriesEdit

Pokémon: Indigo LeagueEdit

Ash season 1

Ash, Season 1

AshPikachu

Though they have just met Ash and Pikachu have a close bond.

Years later after attending Pokémon Summer Camp, Ash started his Pokémon journey when he had just turned ten years old. However, he overslept and when he got to the Professor's Lab, there were no more Starter Pokémon left. The Professor had one Pokémon left, but he said the Pokémon wasn't very friendly and released Pikachu. Pikachu disliked Ash straight away and shocked him with its Thundershock attack. (This marks the start of his journey with Pikachu.) Later, Pikachu starts to trust Ash. Upon challenging various Gyms, Ash started finding traveling companions such as Brock and Misty. On his journey he regularly encountered the wacky trio Jessie, James and Meowth of Team Rocket, who kept trying to (and still try to) steal Pikachu. He finished in the Top 16 in the Indigo League Competition. During his journey he participated in a Pokémon race, was involved in a movie, got sucked into cyberspace and helped with the Moltres flame. Before heading to the Orange Islands, he picked up the GS Ball from Professor Ivy and bade goodbye to Brock who'd decided to stay with her.

Pokémon: Adventures on the Orange IslandsEdit

During this time, Ash was sent to the Orange Islands by Professor Oak on an errand to retrieve the mysterious GS Ball as the transporter cannot send it to Oak's lab. Ash found out that there were Gyms in the Orange Islands and decided to challenge them, winning a trophy for beating the Gym Leaders. During his time in the Orange Islands, Ash gained a new travelling companion in Tracey Sketchit, a "Pokemon Watcher", who observes Pokemon in their natural habitats and draws them in his sketchbook, and caught new Pokémon, Snorlax and Lapras, as well. He battled the Orange Crew in a style of battling much different than what he was used to. Eventually he battled Drake and became the next Orange League Champion. Upon Ash's return to his lab with the GS Ball, Professor Oak couldn't open it either and asked Ash to deliver it to his associate Kurt in Azalea Town in the Johto region, where there are also Gyms for the Johto League. Brock returned and Tracey remained behind to help Professor Oak at his lab. Team Rocket tried to catch Pikachu again, but they were stopped by Gary.

Pokémon: The Johto JourneysEdit

150px-EP177 Ash

Ash in Johto

Ash heard that there was a region called Johto and traveled there to find and catch new Pokémon unseen in Kanto. He battled the Gym Leaders there and caught the three Starter Pokémon, just as he'd done in Kanto. Brock returned and left Professor Ivy (for unknown reasons) and Tracey remained at Professor Oak's Lab. During this season, Ash won two badges for the Johto League, by facing Falkner of the Violet Gym and Bugsy of the Azalea Town Gym. He also catches a Shiny Noctowl, had another battle with Misty and said goodbye to his Charizard as he left it at the Charicific Valley so it could become stronger.

Pokémon: Johto League ChampionsEdit

Ash won three more badges, but was delayed from having his sixth Gym Battle as the Gym Leader was preoccupied with caring for an ill Electric Pokemon, Ampharos, that fueled the lighthouse's power. Determined to get his Gym Battle, Ash traveled over to Cianwood City to get the medicine needed for Ampharos. Along the way he meets Whitney, Morty, Jasmine and Chuck, along with some new friends like Sakura, an aspiring Trainer and one of the 5 Kimono Sisters and reunites with Casey, whose Chikorita evolved into Bayleef. After his Gym Battle with Chuck, Ash and his mates traveled to the Whirl Islands on Chuck's suggestion to take part in the Whirl Cup Competition, a tournament for Water-type Pokémon.

Pokémon: Master QuestEdit

Ash season five

Ash in the fifth season

During this season, Ash finally collected the remaining three badges to enter the Johto League by beating Jasmine, Pryce and Clair. He also met Lance and stopped Team Rocket's latest scheme at the Lake of Rage and brought a Larvitar back to its mother. In the Johto League, he battled his old rival Gary and finally defeated him, bringing their long rivalry to an end, then fought Harrison from the Hoenn region, who had a Blaziken, a Fire-Type Pokemon Ash had never seen before. To face it, Ash chose his trusty Charizard: the two Fire-Types fought fiercely, but ultimately Charizard fainted and Ash lost. (However, Charizard managed to wound Blaziken badly enough to prevent Harrison from using it in his next match, which led to his defeat.) Ash then decided to travel to the Hoenn region, but sadly both of his friends had to return home and thus would not be traveling with him this time.


Advanced SeriesEdit

Pokémon: AdvancedEdit

Ash Pikachu Taillow

Ash in his Hoenn Clothes.

Starting a new journey, Ash received new clothes from his mom, trading his familiar button-up shirt for a sleeveless hoodie, his green gloves for black ones and got a new cap. Breaking with what he'd done previously when he left for Johto, Ash left the rest of his team with Professor Oak and Tracey, intent on capturing new Pokemon in Hoenn, taking only Pikachu, his Starter, with him from home - the idea being to recapture the feeling of first leaving Pallet Town as a new Trainer. Upon arrival, he gained two new traveling companions in May, a beginner Trainer starting out on her journey with no clue what to do, and her younger brother Max, who has an extensive, impressive knowledge of Pokémon that far exceeds his years. Brock also returned, having finished his errands at home. Ash won his first three badges by the end of the season: the Stone Badge from Roxanne of the Rustboro Gym, the Knuckle Badge from a rematch with Brawly from the Dewford Gym, and the Dynamo Badge from Wattson of the Mauville Gym.

Pokémon: Advanced ChallengeEdit

PKMEON BATALLA AVANZADA

Ash and his traveling companions in Hoenn

Ash was eager to challenge more Gyms but was held up by May as she decided to be a Pokémon Coordinator. Ash encountered both Team Magma and Team Aqua, two villainous crime syndicates occupying the Hoenn region for the first time. Ash also won the Heat Badge from Flannery, the Balance Badge from Norman, May and Max's father, and a Feather Badge from Winona.

Pokémon: Advanced BattleEdit

PokmonO O

Ash and his friends, Brock, May and Max.

Before winning his last few badges, Ash was caught in a clash between Teams Magma and Aqua as they unleashed the legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre to reshape the world. Due to Pikachu's connection with Groundon, both teams were stopped and the legendary Pokémon returned to rest. After that, Ash beat the twin Gym Leaders Tate and Liza for the Mind Badge and Grand Festival winner Juan for the Rain Badge. Prior to entering the Hoenn League, Ash declined an offer from Professor Oak to trade in his current Pokémon with his previous captures on the grounds that his new team had earned it for themselves. He gained two new rivals in Morrison and Tyson, the former he would beat, but the latter he would lose to. He placed among the Top 8.

Returning to Kanto with Brock, May and Max, Ash was invited to partake in the Battle Frontier, battling Frontier Brains for Frontier Symbols. Upon encountering the first Frontier Brain, Noland and his Articuno, Ash left his friends for a quick bit while the Factory Head took Max and Pikachu up in his airplane, telling them "I had to make a phone call." Later that night as the gang was watching Noland's Pokémon eat dinner, they speculated which of Noland's Pokémon Ash would challenge: Max guessed Venusaur, May guessed Rhyhorn, but Ash, aiming high, boldly decided on Articuno. Wondering which of Ash's Pokémon he would use against a Legendary, the gang was excited when they saw his pick; Ash had gone straight to the top and brought in the big guns, calling in Charizard from the Charicific Valley to take on the Ice/Flying-type head-to-head. Despite the Type advantage being set against it, Noland's Articuno demonstrated its ability to quickly recover after taking direct hits from Charizard's Flamethrower and DragonBreath attacks and managed to gain an advantage over the fiery behemoth with an Ice Beam to the wingtip and repeatedly combining its Ice Beam and Water Pulse attacks, the latter move being strong enough to counter Charizard's newest move: Overheat. Ultimately though, Charizard managed to withstand Articuno's Steel Wing attack, and as the Legendary Bird came in for one last strike, it grabbed its wings in midair, stopping the attack before it could connect and topped it off with its signature Seismic Toss, knocking out Articuno for the win and earning Ash the Knowledge Symbol.

Pokémon: Battle FrontierEdit

Ash and his friends

Ash with May, Max and Brock

Ash battled all of the remaining Frontier Brains and earned their Frontier Symbols. The last Frontier Brain however, Pyramid King Brandon, proved to be more difficult for Ash to defeat; Their first official battle saw Brandon's Registeel defeating Ash's Torkoal in spite of a new move it learned. For their rematch, which would be four-on-four, Ash took a "back to your roots" approach, once again calling in Charizard but also this time bringing in Bulbasaur and Squirtle to reunite his trio of Kanto Starters. Putting them together with Pikachu, Ash formed a team of aces from his early days: pitting the four aces against Brandon's Dusclops, Ninjask, Solrock and Regice, he finally claimed victory and the final Frontier Symbol - the Brave Symbol - completing the set and winning the Battle Frontier. After his victory, Scott offered Ash the position of Frontier Brain when one of them retired but he declined, opting instead to continue his journey. Before saying goodbye to May, Ash competed against her in the Terratta Pokemon Contest, their match ending in a tie. There was only one ribbon and they couldn't decide who to give it to. Ash had his Sceptile use Leaf Blade to cut the ribbon in half, choosing to split it with May before they all parted ways. Returning home, Ash met up with Gary again and saw the latter's new Electivire. Gary informed Ash about the region of Sinnoh, to which he immediately decided to travel next on his journey.


Diamond and Pearl SeriesEdit

Pokémon: Diamond and PearlEdit

DP344

Ash, Pikachu, Dawn, Brock and Piplup.

Departing for Sinnoh, Ash once again left his previous captures at Professor Oak's laboratory, with the exception of his Aipom who'd snuck along. After arriving in Sinnoh by boat and reuniting with Brock, he gained yet another new traveling companion in Dawn, a confident girl interested in following in her mother's footsteps as a Pokemon Coordinator. After receiving new clothes from his mother in the mail, Ash gained a new rival in a Trainer named Paul. Later in the season, Ash misses meeting Team Galactic due to moving on with his journey too soon. He won his first two Sinnoh Gym Badges: a Coal Badge from Roark and a Forest Badge from Gardenia. Ash encountered Pokemon Hunter J, who temporarily kidnapped Pikachu by turning it into stone. Ash's first Sinnoh capture was a Starly which evolved into Staravia, and a Turtwig. His final Sinnoh acquisition came when he adopted Paul's Chimchar by the end of the season.

Pokémon: DP Battle DimensionEdit

Ash Puzzeled

A face view

In this season, Ash continued battling and earning badges while Dawn continued to earn contest ribbons. They also encountered Team Galactic and tried to stop them from stealing the Adamant Orb. During this time, Ash earns his fifth Gym Badge. For most of the season, Ash had to wait for Gym Leader Fantina to return to her Gym in order to challenge her. Ash reunited with May during the Wallace Cup and took part as a coordinator once again (per Wallace's request). Late one night with Pikachu, he saw the spirit of Azelf rise out of the lake the contest was being held at. He tied with Maylene but earned a Cobble Badge from her and defeated both Crasher Wake and Fantina for the Fen and Relic Badges. He also acquired a new rival in Barry, a somewhat clumsy boy who insists on fining people. Ash acquired a few more Pokemon during this season; at the suggestion of Zoey, he traded his Aipom for Dawn's Buizel, the only trade so far he hasn't reversed; his Turtwig evolved into Grotle; and he caught a Gligar which became a Gliscor.

Pokémon: DP Galactic BattlesEdit

Season12 ep46 ss1

The lake trio, with their hearts connected to humans, Mespirit with Dawn, Azelf with Ash and Uxie with Brock.

Continuing his journey in Sinnoh, Ash managed to beat Byron, winning the Mine Badge and Candice, winning the Icicle Badge. Along the trip to Sunyshore City, Ash and his friends encounter International Policeman Looker and were recruited to help stop the plans of Team Galactic as the three of them were chosen to share a bond with the three Lake Spirit Pokémon, during which Brock managed to find Uxie. Managing to find Team Galactic in the middle of creating a new universe with the captive Lake Trio controlling Palkia and Dialga, Ash, Dawn and Brock freed the trio and Team Galactic was arrested while their leader vanished into the collapsing new world, effectively disbanding Team Galactic. At the end of the season, Ash caught himself a Gible which was learning Draco Meteor.

Pokémon: DP Sinnoh League VictorsEdit

EP528 Ash, Brock y Maya

Ash and Pikachu with Dawn and Brock.

After the Team Galactic incident, Ash entered the Sinnoh League after beating Volkner and earning the Beacon Badge. He also reunited with Jasmine from the Olivine Gym before heading to Lily-of-the-Valley. Taking a different approach in this League than he did in Hoenn, Ash combined his previous captures with his current Pokemon to form well-balanced teams of new and old. The Sinnoh League was one of the hardest and most intense Leagues he ever competed in, as he had rivals Paul and Barry to compete with, and a mysterious trainer who joined with the Legendary Pokémon Darkrai. He battled against most of his rivals save for Barry, who battled Paul and lost, so Ash's next match was against Paul.

DP18

Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Dawn and Piplup in the 13th Season.

The battle was intense as Paul showed Pokémon that he didn't normally use while Ash had reassembled his team of six from their earlier battle at Lake Valor. The fight came down to Paul's Electivire and Ash's Infernape. Despite taking heavy damage, Infernape won the match for Ash with its ability, Blaze. After defeating Paul, Ash faced an opponent other Trainers in the League dreaded to face as he was hard to defeat: the Trainer with the Darkrai: Tobias. After losing a couple of Pokemon to it, Ash was able to defeat Tobias' Darkrai with Sceptile and even knocked out Tobias' Latios with Pikachu. However, as the rest of Ash's Pokémon had fainted, he was eliminated. To this day, the Sinnoh League remains Ash's most impressive performance in a Pokemon League Tournament: he reached the Top 4 - the farthest he'd ever gotten in any Pokemon League - and was the only one of Tobias' opponents to defeat two of his Pokemon, let alone his Darkrai. After the Sinnoh League, Ash bade farewell to Dawn as she wished to continue entering contests, and also parted ways with Brock, his oldest friend and longest-running traveling companion for the final time, as Brock now wished to become a Pokémon Doctor.

Black and White SeriesEdit

Pokémon: Black & WhiteEdit

DP19

Ash and Pikachu in Unova

At home in Pallet Town, Ash received new clothes and was invited along with his mother by Professor Oak to take a trip to the far away Unova region for a scientific expedition. Upon arrival, a more formidable Team Rocket - no longer fooling around and acting in a more serious capacity - once again tried to capture Pikachu. This was prevented by the timely intervention of Zekrom, one of Unova's two Legendary Pokemon. Zekrom caused a storm that scared away Team Rocket and temporarily knocked Pikachu out. Arriving at Professor Juniper's
Don Battle Ash

lab, Ash encountered a new rival named Trip, an insolent boy with an intolerant attitude towards Trainers from Kanto. Ash battled Trip, but lost as Pikachu's Electric attacks had been temporarily disabled from the encounter with Zekrom. Ash later decided to go out on a new quest to win the Unova League. After leaving on his new journey, Ash gained new traveling companions in Iris, an up-and-coming Dragon Master with keen eyesight, and Cilan, one of the three optional Gym Leaders of the Striaton City Gym who utilized Grass-Type Pokemon and also a Pokemon Connoisseur. Ash continued his inadvertent tradition of catching all three Starter Pokemon of a region, something not done since Johto: He adopted an Oshawott that had snuck away from Professor Juniper's lab and an abandoned Tepig whose Trainer no longer wanted it. Last but not least, Ash caught a very strong Snivy which acts like the mother of his team. Ash won the Trio Badge, Basic Badge and Insect Badge. As the season continued, he acquired a mysterious egg which later hatched into his Scraggy.

Pokémon: BW Rival DestiniesEdit

Ash's Future Team

Ash with his Unova team.

Continuing on his journey through Unova with Iris and Cilan, after they stopped Team Rocket from stealing Pokémon from the Nimbasa Pokémon Center, Ash and co. met up with Bianca and encountered both the Gym Leader Elesa and Bianca's father. After he allowed both his daughter and Ash to continue their respective journeys, Ash battled Elesa and won the Bolt Badge. Then he had the honor of meeting Alder, the Unova League Champion. He also saved Unova from being torn apart by Tornadus and Thundurus by summoning Landorus. Following this, Ash had a Gym Battle with Clay after getting him some Revival Herbs. During the battle Ash's Roggenrola evolved into a Boldore; using its ability, Sturdy, Ash defeated Clay, earning him the Quake Badge.

Ash in the Kalos Region

Ash traveled to the Kalos region to compete in the Kalos League and to continue his dream of becoming a Pokémon Master. He gained new traveling companions in the siblings Clemont and Bonnie and later reunited with his childhood friend Serena, who still remembered Ash rescuing her a long time ago and would travel with him as well. Despite being childhood friends with Serena, he had no memory of their relationship until Serena showed him the handkerchief he used to mend her knee when they were little kids in the episode, Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!. Ash also caught three new Pokemon: his first Kalos capture was a Froakie followed by a Fletchling then a Hawlucha. Within the first five episodes of the season, Ash faced Alexa's sister Viola, the Gym Leader of Santalune City who specialized in Bug-type Pokemon. During their battle, Ash faced difficulty against Viola's Surskit, who gained an advantage over Pikachu by freezing the arena, turning it into an ice field. Ash decided that what needed improving was his Pokemon's balance, and with Alexa's help, engaged in special training designed to combat this flaw. Clemont also tried to help using one of his latest devices, but the machine backfired and exploded. In a rematch, Ash ultimately defeated Viola and claimed the Bug Badge, his first badge from a Kalos Gym. Much later, Ash battled against the Cyllage City Gym Leader Grant and his Rock-Type Pokemon. Having seen Grant defeat Viola at the Battle Chateau, Ash sought a way to defeat Grant's Rock Tomb. When he faced Grant, this ended up becoming Rock Tomb Climb, the use of which earned Ash his second Kalos Badge, the Cliff Badge. Some time later, Ash battle Moria, a Sky Trainer who specializes Sky Battles, and her Talonflame. During the battle his Fletchling evolved into a Fletchinder and won. At the Pokémon Summer Camp, Ash and his friends met Shauna, Trevor, and Tierno. He later had a first-touch-battle against Tierno's Squirtle with Froakie and lost. After spending a good time at the Pokémon Summer Camp, Ash went to Shalour City and battled Korrina, a Gym Leader who previously traveled with Ash and his friends in order to help her understand Mega Evolution with her Lucario. Despite a failed attempt of using Tierno's dancing strategy, Ash managed to win his third Kalos Badge, the Rumble Badge.

OriginEdit

DesignEdit

Ash's design is based on the player character from Generation I, Red.

EtymologyEdit

Ash's Japanese name, Satoshi, comes from Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of Pokémon. Ash may be a shortening of Satoshi and his last name, Ketchum, may have come from the phrase "Gotta catch 'em all".[2]

TriviaEdit

  • Ash has had 49 Pokémon including different evolutionary forms (78 if all Tauros are included).
  • Ash has caught at least one of the Starter Pokémon in every region, and has caught the main bird Pokémon that appears in that region's Pokédex.
    • He caught Pidgeotto in Kanto that later evolved into Pidgeot (Ash also almost captured a Spearow and later that same Pokemon evolved into Fearow) which he soon released to protect and lead a flock Pidgey and Pidgeotto.
      • It is Interesting to note that Ash must have accidentally evolved the Spearow into a Fearow a few episodes after its first appearance.
    • He captured a Shiny Noctowl in Johto.
    • He captured Taillow that later evolved into Swellow in Hoenn.
    • He captured Starly that later evolved into Staravia then Staraptor in Sinnoh.
    • He caught a female Pidove that evolved into Tranquill then Unfezant in Unova.
    • He caught a Fletchling that evolved into Flechinder in Kalos.
  • With the exception of the Orange League, Ash has never won a league tournament.
  • Ash's skin has tanned in the beginning of the Master Quest episodes from being outside in the sun all the time.
  • Ash is the only known trainer to have ever defeated Tobias' Darkrai.
  • In the Kanto region, Ash often turned his cap backwards when preparing for a battle or to capture a Pokemon. This habit wore off as time went on. However he was shown turning his cap backwards when he was battling Tobias, presumably because Tobias was arguably the strongest trainer he'd ever faced, being the only one who was capable of beating all six of his Pokemon using only two of his own. Although in the Best Wishes series, Ash is seen turning his cap backwards more often. He recently turned his hat around in A Battle of Aerial Mobility! when he used Froakie to help defeat and capture Fletching.
Ash hat back wards 13th season

Ash wearing his cap backwards in the 13th season, the first time in many seasons.

  • Ash has the ability to sense and control aura, as it was shown in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and once again in the Diamond and Pearl episodes, "Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 1" and "Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part 2". Aaron's Lucario has stated that Ash's aura is the same as Aaron's, and Ash was able to use his aura to find and save Riolu. Ash only used his aura abilities when it has something to do with either Riolu or Lucario.
  • Ash turned 10 at the start of the series and was canonically so from seasons 1-3, though it is unknown if he actually aged. According to the narration of In the Shadow of Zekrom!, he's still 10, although this narration is probably inaccurate, or maybe the directors have confirmed that Ash is still 10.
  • Ash has seen every legendary Pokémon from Kanto to Unova.
  • Ash is one of the default name options for the player in Pokémon Red and Blue.
  • In Tekken 6, there is a female character named Eleonore "Leo" Kliesen, who can be customized to look like Ash Ketchum. Coincidentally, both characters were voiced by Veronica Taylor and sounded very similar.
  • Almost every character in the Pokémon anime are featured in the games, such Misty (Who even appeared as a trophie in Super Smash Bros. Melee), Brock, who appeared in Pokémon Red/Blue version, Lyra (from Diamond Pearl), as a Trainer♀ in Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver version and Gary, who appeared as main rival in Pokémon Red/Blue version default named as Blue. However, the only game Ash has ever appeared was in Pokémon Puzzle League for the Nintendo 64.
  • According to Climbing the Walls!, Ash's favorite move is Thunderbolt.
  • In BW001, announcer calls Ash 10 year old.[3].
