At first, [[Ash's Pikachu|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, thanks to being struck by lightning at that exact moment, supercharging his Electric-type move. 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 (anime)|Misty]] and [[Brock (anime)|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, journeying through the regions, making new friends such as [[Tracey Sketchit|Tracey]], [[May (anime)|May]], [[Max]], [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]], [[Iris (anime)|Iris]] and [[Cilan (anime)|Cilan]], challenging all the Gym Leaders, entering each region's Pokémon League, and catching 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 without thinking. Ash is currently traveling in the [[Kalos]] region, with his new friends [[Bonnie (anime)|Bonnie]], [[Clemont (anime)|Clemont]] and his old childhood friend [[Serena (anime)|Serena]]. Ash's name in the Japanese version of the anime is ''Satoshi'', likely after [[Satoshi Tajiri]], the creator of Pokémon. While there is much speculation, ultimately It is still unknown who Ash's father is; but according to 'Pokémon Live!', his mother dated [[Giovanni (anime)|Giovanni]] and was in [[Team Rocket|his gang]] but took a better route in life when she met Ash's father.

However, he overslept [[File:AshPikachu.jpeg|thumb|Though they have just met Ash and Pikachu have a close bond.]]and when he got to the Professor's Lab, there were no more starter Pokémon left; but the Professor has one Pokémon left, but he says that the Pokémon isn't very friendly and he releases [[Pikachu]].

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. He also battles the Orange Crew, whose style of battling is much different than what Ash is used to. Eventually he battled Drake and became the next Orange League Champion.

[[File:Young Ash.PNG|thumb|Ash helping Serena.]]

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 when he gets older. While looking for a [[Poliwag]], Ash happened upon a young girl and fellow camper named Serena who got lost in the forest while looking for her group. She'd fallen and injured her knee after Poliwag startled her. He wrapped a clean, blue handkerchief with a Poké Ball 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. Then he guided her out of the forest and took her back to the campsite.
   
===[[Pokémon: Advanced Challenge|Season 7: Advanced Challenge]]===

At some point before starting their journeys, Ash was friends with [[Gary Oak]] until they both fished out a [[Poké Ball]] on both their lines. After arguing about who keeps it, they broke it in two, each keeping one half as a reminder of that day.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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]].

+
*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.
*Other than the [[Orange League]], Ash has never yet won a league tournament.

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 (MS008)|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 Ketchum is the main protagonist of the Pokémon anime series who has always dreamed of becoming a Pokémon Master. As soon as he was ten years old, he rushed to Professor Oak's Laboratory to get his first Pokémon. He is the first human character to be introduced in the series. Originally wanting to choose Squirtle, but he was late. Ash ended up getting the Pokémon Pikachu, and left on his journey.

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, thanks to being struck by lightning at that exact moment, supercharging his Electric-type move. 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, journeying through the regions, making new friends such as Tracey, May, Max, Dawn, Iris and Cilan, challenging all the Gym Leaders, entering each region's Pokémon League, and catching 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 without thinking. 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. While there is much speculation, ultimately It is still 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.

AppearanceEdit

Ash wears a few outfits, as seen on the Pokémon anime, he also has black hair and brown eyes, and always wears a cap.

Original seriesEdit

In the original series, Ash wears a medium blue jacket with gold trim, white collar and sleeves, dark cyan or teal T-shirt, blue jeans with light blue cuffs, black and white sneakers with red dots, green fingerless gloves with light green borders and a red and white hat with a green stylized "L".

Advanced GenerationEdit

In the Advanced Generations series, Ash appeared with new clothing - a black and red hat with a green Poké Ball on it, a blue hoodie, black gloves, new jeans and sneakers.

Diamond & PearlEdit

In the Diamond & Pearl series, Ash appeared with another new outfit, consisting of a jacket, white undershirt, new jeans, new sneakers, and his hat's Poké Ball is blue.

Best Wishes!Edit

In the Best Wishes series, Ash appeared with a new outfit, new hat and new sneakers, wears a red and white hat with a blue Poké Ball, wears a blue and white hooded jacket with a golden zipper, black baggy jeans, black fingerless gloves with red borders and his sneakers are high tops.

XYEdit

In the XY series, Ash wears yet another new outfit, consisting of a blue collared shirt with short sleeves, darker blue jeans, red and white hat and red high top sneakers.

PersonalityEdit

Ash is very determined to be a good Pokémon trainer as seen in every episode. He shows a lot of sympathy towards Pokémon usually helping and befriending Pokémon he meets on his long journey. He doesn't like trainers who mistreat Pokémon such as J, Jessie, and James. He is a role model to many people such as May, Dawn, N, and Serena. Ash never changes his strategy of all out attacking and using water + Electric type Moves to defeat other Pokémon. Ash is generally kind, compassionate and brave, but can be stubborn, hot-headed, reckless and impulsive at times. He has also been seen to be quite athletic, several times through the Best Wishes Series, and once in the movie Pokémon 4Ever.

Since entering the Kalos region, Ash has demonstrated much greater maturity and level-headiness; both in and out of battles.

BiographyEdit

AnimeEdit

Pre-seriesEdit

Young Ash

Ash helping Serena.

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 when he gets older. While looking for a Poliwag, Ash happened upon a young girl and fellow camper named Serena who got lost in the forest while looking for her group. She'd fallen and injured her knee after Poliwag startled her. He wrapped a clean, blue handkerchief with a Poké Ball 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. Then he guided her out of the forest and took her back to the campsite.

At some point before starting their journeys, Ash was friends with Gary Oak until they both fished out a Poké Ball on both their lines. After arguing about who keeps it, they broke it in two, each keeping one half as a reminder of that day.

Pokémon Information
Ash Pikachu
Pikachu was given to Ash by Professor Oak, since the other three Kanto starter Pokémon had already been taken by other trainers. Originally, Pikachu would not listen to Ash and constantly shocked him. However, after accidentally angering a flock of Spearow, Pikachu had a change of heart when he saw Ash defend him. Since then, Pikachu has assisted and been very successful in many of Ash's battles, and over time has adopted Ash's mannerisms. Pikachu does not want to be in his Poké Ball, so he stays out all the time, often riding on Ash's shoulder or head.
Pikachu
Pokémon Information
Ash Greninja
Froakie first appeared in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, where he observed Pikachu shocking Bonnie, Clemont and Ash outside the Lumiose Gym. Froakie protected Pikachu from his own Electro Ball, which had been rebounded by Wobbuffet's Mirror Coat. At the end of the episode, Froakie appeared in front of Sycamore's lab with a Poké Ball and asked Ash to catch him, which Ash did so gladly. He later evolved into a Frogadier during a battle against Saizo and Barbaracle. He evolved into Greninja in a battle against Heidayu and Bisharp after enduring and blocking Bisharp's Shadow Claw.
Froakie → Frogadier → Greninja ↔ Ash-Greninja
Pokémon Information
Ash Talonflame
Fletchling first appeared where it swooped down to take a berry that Bonnie gave to a Dedenne. Afterwards, Froakie challenged it to a battle but Fletchling's speed and strength proved to be too much for Froakie. Froakie was finally able to land a hit on the Tiny Robin Pokémon. Ash threw a Poké Ball at it but the capture was unsuccessful. Froakie continued the battle with Fletchling and landed a hit with Water Pulse. Ash threw another Poké Ball at Fletchling and managed to catch it this time. It later evolved into Fletchinder during a sky battle against Moria's Talonflame and then into a Talonflame while battling against the legendary Pokémon, Moltres.
Fletchling → Fletchinder → Talonflame
Pokémon Information
Ash Hawlucha
Hawlucha first appeared when he was protecting a group of small Pokémon from a rampaging Ursaring. He was known as the "Champion of the Forest" after beating a Machamp prior to being captured. He decided to travel with Ash after he helped him perfect the move, Flying Press and settle the rivalry between it and Machamp.
Hawlucha
Pokémon Information

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, comes from the phrase "Gotta catch 'em all".[1]

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.
  • With the exception of the Orange League, Ash has never won a league tournament.
  • 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's birthday is on May 22.
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 has seen every legendary Pokémon from Kanto to Kalos.
  • 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 as Misty (who even appeared as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee), Brock (who appeared in Pokémon Red/Blue version), and Lyra (from Diamond & Pearl), as a Trainer♀ in Pokémon 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, mostly since this is his Pikachu's most notable move throughout the entire series.
  • Among all of Ash's Pokémon, he had only one Electric-type Pokémon and that is his starter pokémon Pikachu.
  • Ash was Veronica Taylor's favorite role to voice in her career.
  • Although he has used them, Ash has not officially caught any Psychic, Steel, Ghost or Fairy-type Pokemon as of yet.
  • In the French Dub, His name was now changed to Sacha for unknown reasons.
