{{Nihongo|Ash Ketchum|サトシ|Satoshi}} is the main protagonist of the [[Pokémon Anime|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 [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]], and left on his journey.
+
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.

==Appearance==

Ash wears a few outfits, as seen on the Pokémon anime, he also has black hair and brown eyes, and always wears a cap.
   
==Biography==
+
===Original series===
===Pre-Series===
+
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".
When Ash Ketchum was a little boy, he was enrolled in Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp where he will 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 in the summer camp, got herself lost in a forest while trying to look for her group and injured her knee after a [[Poliwag]] startled her. Ash came to her rescue and 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 lended her his hand and helped her stand up. After that, he guided her out of the forest and took her back to the campsite.
 
   
===Original Series===
+
===Advanced Generation===
====[[Pokémon: Indigo League|Season 1: Indigo League]]====
+
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.
[[File:Ash season 1.jpg|thumb|right|150px|Ash, Season 1]]
 
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 [[Professor Oak|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]].
 
[[File:AshPikachu.jpeg|thumb|Though they have just met Ash and Pikachu have a close bond.]]
 
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 (anime)|Brock]] and [[Misty (anime)|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 Islands|Season 2: Adventures on the Orange Islands]]====
+
===Diamond & Pearl===
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]].
+
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.
   
====[[Pokémon: The Johto Journeys|Season 3: The Johto Journeys]]====
+
===Best Wishes!===
[[File:150px-EP177 Ash.jpg|thumb|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 [[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.
+
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.
   
====[[Pokémon: Johto League Champions|Season 4: Johto League Champions]]====
+
===XY===
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 fuelled the lighthouse's power. Determined to get his Gym Battle, Ash travelled 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 Pokemon|Water-Type Pokemon]].
+
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.
   
====[[Pokémon: Master Quest|Season 5: Master Quest]]====
+
==Personality==
[[File:Ash season five.png|thumb|Ash in the fifth season]]
+
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 (anime)|May]], [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]], [[N (anime)|N]], and [[Serena (anime)|Serena]]. Ash never changes his strategy of all out attacking and using water + [[Electric type]] [[Move]]s 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 [[MS004: Pokémon 4Ever - Celebi: Voice of the Forest|Pokémon 4Ever]].
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 [[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===
+
Since entering the Kalos region, Ash has demonstrated much greater maturity and level-headiness; both in and out of battles.
====[[Pokémon: Advanced|Season 6: Advanced]]====
 
[[File:Ash Pikachu Taillow.jpg|thumb|left|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 (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]].
 
   
====[[Pokémon: Advanced Challenge|Season 7: Advanced Challenge]]====

==Biography==
[[File:PKMEON BATALLA AVANZADA.jpg|thumb|Ash and his traveling companions in Hoenn]]
+
===Anime===
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]].

====Pre-series====

[[File:Young Ash.PNG|thumb|Ash helping Serena.]]
====[[Pokémon: Advanced Battle|Season 8: Advanced Battle]]====
+
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.
[[File:PokmonO O.png|thumb|left|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 Pokemon]] [[Groudon]] and [[Kyogre]] to reshape the world. Due to Pikachu's connection with Groundon, both teams were stopped and the legendary Pokemon returned to rest. After that, Ash beat the twin Gym Leaders [[Liza and Tate]] 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 Pokemon 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.
 
 
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 Pokemon eat dinner, they speculated which of Noland's Pokemon Ash would challenge: Max guessed Venusaur, May guessed Rhyhorn, but Ash, aiming high, boldy decided on Articuno. Wondering which of Ash's Pokemon 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 Frontier|Season 9: Battle Frontier]]====
+
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.
[[File:Ash_and_his_friends.png|thumb|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 [[Ash's Bulbasaur|Bulbasaur]] and [[Ash's Squirtle|Squirtle]] to reunite his trio of Kanto Starters. Putting them together with [[Ash's Pikachu|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 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 Oak|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.

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]], 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.

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 [[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]].

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]].

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 (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 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 [[Ash's Sceptile|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|right|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]]. He also saved Unova from being torn apart by [[Tornadus]] and [[Thundurus]] by summoning [[Landorus|Landorus.]] Following this, Ash had a Gym Battle with [[Clay]] after getting him some Revival Herbs.

====Magical Pokémon Journey====
Ash traveled to the Kalos region 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 would travel with him as well. Despite being childhood friends with Serena, he had no memory of their relationship until [[XY007]]. Ash also caught two new Pokemon: his first Kalos capture was a [[Ash's Froakie|Froakie]] followed by a [[Ash's Fletchling|Fletchling]]. 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.

*Ash has had 49 [[Pokémon]] including different evolutionary forms (78 if all Tauros are included).

*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]].
+
*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 only evolved into Fearow)
+
*With the exception of the Orange League, Ash has never won a league tournament.
**He captured shiny Noctowl in Johto.
+
*Ash is the only known trainer to have ever defeated [[Tobias' Darkrai]].
**He captured Tallow that later evolved into Swellow in Hoenn.
+
*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.
**He captured Starly that later evolved into Staravia and Staraptor in Sinnoh.
+
*Ash's birthday is on May 22.
**He caught a female Pidove that later evolved into Tranquill and Unfezant in Unova.
 
**He caught a Fletchling that has yet to evolve in Kalos.
 
*Other than the [[Orange League]], Ash has never yet won a league tournament.
 
*Ash's skin has tanned in the beginning of the Master Quest episodes, most likely from being outside in the sun all the time.
 
*Ash is the only known trainer to have ever defeated [[Tobias]]' [[Darkrai]].

*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.

*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.
*Ash is one of only seven characters in the show to have a last name: he and his mother Delia both have the last name Ketchum, while [[Professor Oak|Professor Samuel Oak]] and his grandson [[Gary Oak|Gary]] are two more sharing the last name Oak, with Professor Oak's assistant [[Tracey Sketchit]] being the fifth. Oddly enough, the sixth and seventh characters with this disctinction are Jeannette Fisher and [[Pete Pebbleman]], both minor characters in the Pokemon series and Characters of the Day, the former from [[IL077: The Fourth Round Rumble]] and the latter from [[IL076: Fire and Ice]]. Ash faced and defeated both characters in the Indigo Pokemon League.
+
*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 [[XY025: Climbing the Walls!|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 {{Type|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 type|Psychic]], [[Steel type|Steel]], [[Ghost type|Ghost]] or [[Fairy type|Fairy-type]] Pokemon as of yet.
  +
*In the French Dub, His name was now changed to ''Sacha'' for unknown reasons.

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.

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.
