Ash Ketchum is a Pokemon trainer from Pallet Town, and is the main character of the Pokemon anime. He began his journey after receiving a Pikachu from Professor Oak. And while at first Pikachu didn't like him, he soon became Ash's most loyal companion. Together, they have travelled through the Kanto region, the Orange Islands, the Johto region, the Hoenn region, the Kanto region again, the Sinnoh region, the Unova region, the Decolore islands, and are currently travelling through the Kalos region on his never-ending quest to become a Pokemon master.
Ash enrolled in Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp when he was young. One day, another camper named Serena got lost in the forest and wounded her leg after getting startled by a Poliwag. Ash, who was looking for the Poliwag, came to her rescue and wrapped a handkerchief around the wounded knee to brace it. He then helped her up and guided her out of the forest.
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.
Years later, Ash began his Pokémon journey at the age of 10 as a warm-hearted and well-intentioned but stubborn, rash, and amateur Pokémon Trainer. He was forced to accept a stubborn Pikachu from Professor Oak as his starter Pokémon because he woke up late on the day he was set to get his first Pokémon. He was determined to achieve his goal, however, and when Pikachu saw that he was willing to compromise his own safety to keep it safe, the two of them formed an extremely strong bond that has been noticed and remarked upon by many characters in the anime. This unbreakable friendship would set his course for the future.
However, from that point, Ash still had a lot to learn about becoming a Trainer. The first Pokémon he caught was caught by luck, as he knew absolutely nothing about battling, and he was hesitant to admit when he was wrong. What more, his journey was made even more complicated due to the presence of Jessie,James and Meowth of Team Rocket, who after witnessing Pikachu's power, made it their primary objective to steal him for their boss, Giovanni.
Thankfully though, Ash did not go on this journey alone, as soon after he left Pallet Town, he met Misty, who followed him on the pretense that he owed her a bike (which Ash 'borrowed' to save Pikachu, and which the Electric Mouse destroyed whilst protecting Ash). Ash then met Brock, the Pewter Gym Leader, whom he fought and lost to. However in his rematch, Ash nearly defeated Brock, but refused to give the final blow, due to the intervention of Brock's younger siblings. Touched by Ash's kindness to Pokémon, and with the return of his estranged father, Flint, Brock decided to go with Ash and pursue his dream of being the world's best Pokémon Breeder. Shortly afterwards, when Ash reached the Cerulean Gym, he was shocked to learn that Misty was one of its Gym Leaders. After Ash earned his Cascade Badge, he continued his journey with Misty, who dreams to be the worlds greatest Water Pokémon Master.
Unfortunately, many of Ash's first Gym Badges were given to him merely out of gratitude for his assistance rather than claiming an actual victory in battle over the Gym Leaders; of his first five Gym battles, only his victory over Lt. Surge was an actual victory. Furthermore, every time he thought he was doing well, he would somehow cross paths with his childhood rival, Gary Oak. Gary always reminded Ash that he was always a step or seven behind; indeed, by the time Ash had caught his seventh Pokémon, Gary had caught more than forty. Ash's troubles were not made any easier when, owing to his inexperience, his Charizard grew too powerful and refused to listen to him until Ash could prove himself to him.
With three weeks left until the Pokémon League competition Ash has fallen behind in training. On the couch of Ash's home, Ash and Brock watch the Elite Four's Bruno battling a Trainer with his Hitmonchan. As Bruno commands a ThunderPunch, the TV is switched off. Misty chastises Ash for goofing off. Ash tells Misty they were studying the tape of Bruno. Brock adds that they were learning the 'powers of Pokémon' despite not knowing what those power were. Ash comments that Bruno could train him to learn the power. However Brock and Misty lament that the famous Bruno wouldn't waste his time with them. Ash confidently states that if they knew how to find him then Bruno would definitely teach him. Just then Ash's mother enters telling the group that she knows where to find Bruno. Apparently Bruno's secret training ground is on Mt. Hideaway. Ash jumps up and tells his mother not to make dinner as they are going up to Mt. Hideaway.
Now on their way to the mountain, Misty tells the group that Mt. Hideaway appears to be only 7 miles away. Ash and Brock, completely exhausted, convince Misty that she should rest. The group rest at a house where an old lady brings them food and drink. Ash asks her if she knows of a Pokémon Trainer named Bruno training around the area. The old lady doesn't recognize the name but tells the trio that Pokémon Trainers have been stealing her meatball kebabs. As Ash and Brock eat, a bunch of windchimes start rattling. The lady angrily tells them that the thieves must be back again. Push broom in hand the lady runs out followed by Ash and company. They see three hermits running off with sacks in hand. The lady gives chase as Ash recognizes the bandits as Team Rocket. As they are about to start their motto, Meowth pulls out a remote and speeds it up, leaving Jessie and James exhausted. After this they tell Ash that because they always get beaten by him they have decided to become hermits and live off the land. Meowth adds they're also living off the old lady's meatball kebabs. The enraged old lady gives Team Rocket a beating with her broom and the troublesome trio run away leaving behind the kebabs. The lady tells the heroes that the mountain is known for overgrown Onix. Apparently the soil makes them grow larger. The lady assures them that, despite their size, the Onix are very gentle.
Continuing up the mountain, Brock comments that they have been walking for hours but haven't seen any sign of Bruno or any giant Onix. Ash notices what he thinks is a road. Brock says that it doesn't look like a road but more like tracks made by a really big creature. Suddenly an intense rumbling is heard and the heroes turn to see an enormous Onix heading their way. The Onix approaches as the three run for their lives. When it looks as if the Onix is about to crush them a man beckons them to jump behind a rock. The Onix goes by leaving them unharmed. The man asks if they are OK. The group turn to thank him and Ash and Brock are amazed by who they see. Misty doesn't recognize the man. Brock can't believe that the man standing before them is none other than the Elite Four's Bruno. The three heroes are trailing Bruno up the mountain when Bruno asks if there is a reason why they are following him. Brock gets on his knees, and asks him to help Ash train for the Pokémon League. Brock motions for Ash to ask as well. Ash kneels also and ask for Bruno's help. Bruno agrees to help them as long as they are willing to do everything he tells them to do.
Their first task is to carry buckets of water. Brock theorizes that the task is to make them physically strong. Ash adds that it also helps inner balance and outer equilibrium before falling and soaking Misty. Their second task is splitting wood. Bruno tells Ash this is to give him a firm grip. Ash chops the wood which sends a piece flying off in Misty's direction hitting her in the face and knocking her off the rock she was sitting on. Task three is to carry heavy rocks up hill. Bruno tells them that this will teach them how to control their 'inner nature'. Finally Bruno asks Ash to peel the bark of a twig. Ash peels it perfectly. Bruno takes it and tells them the lesson is to always pack a fork when camping. Bruno breaks the twig in two and uses them as chopsticks. Ash is a little discouraged by this and Misty says she thinks all of Bruno's lessons seem phony. Brock denies this and is ready to prove Bruno is a great Trainer. Brock says that he will sneak up behind him and hit him with a stick, claiming Bruno should sense Brock and stop the attack. Brock envisions him doing so and goes behind Bruno and attacks full force. Bruno fails to detect anything and Brock strikes him hard over the head leaving a large bruise.
As Bruno recovers from the incident, he asks Brock and Ash if they really want to know about the secrets of Pokémon training. Brock and Ash eagerly reply yes. Bruno tells them there are no such secrets and the reason he was on Mt. Hideaway was to catch the biggest Onix he could find. Bruno says that it's no secret that to be a strong Trainer you have to catch strong Pokémon. These revelations leave Ash, Brock and Misty groaning. Brock is distraught that Bruno isn't who he thought he was. Team Rocket overhear the conversation and plan to catch a strong Onix so they can be as good as the Elite Four without having to do any Pokémon training.
Following the gigantic Onix tracks, Meowth believes that they have no hope of catching such a big Pokémon. Jessie and James reveal that they have an unexpected weapon to catch Onix. At the end of the Onix tracks in a large, open area Team Rocket set themselves in wait of the Onix. The ground begins rumbling as an enormous Onix bursts from underground. The Onix is much bigger than they were expecting and Meowth suggests they forget the idea. Jessie stubbornly says that they came for an Onix and that's what they would get.
Ash, Misty, and Brock are heading back down the mountain when they hear a loud noise. They race off to the source of the sound. Meanwhile Team Rocket are blasting missiles at the giant Onix. The smoke clears and the Onix is completely unharmed and begins advancing on them. Terrified the three run into a nearby cave. The Onix begins tackling the wall of the cave causing it to start collapsing. Team Rocket are shouting for help as Ash and the others arrive. To save Team Rocket, Brock sends out his Onix and Misty sends out her Staryu. Ash chooses Squirtle. Brock orders his Onix to use Tackle, but it gets knocked back due to the size of the huge Onix. Misty tells Staryu to use Water Gun but it is largely ineffective. Ash orders Squirtle to use Water Gun too and the combined water attacks cause the Onix to recoil from the cave. Team Rocket use the opportunity to run for their lives. The wild Onix recovers from the double Water Gun attack and uses its tail to hit Staryu and Squirtle and Brock's Onix before sending Team Rocket on their way. The Onix then notices the heroes standing on the ledge above. The Onix tackles the edge where they are standing causing Ash to lose his balance and fall into the area right in front of Onix. Pikachu jumps down and uses its ThunderShock attack. But Onix just shakes it off. Pikachu is about to try again before Ash grabs it telling Pikachu that electric attacks won't work. They huddle together awaiting Onix's attack. But before Onix can strike a lightning fast Bruno leaps in and carries Ash and Pikachu to safety. Bruno looks down at the Onix which is thrashing around. Ash and Brock ask him what Pokémon and attack he will use. Bruno states that he will not use a Pokémon.
Bruno jumps down and asks Onix why it is acting so violent. The Onix dives at him several times, but Bruno dodges its hits asking it why it is attacking him. Bruno then jumps on Onix's head. Onix whips his tail around but misses Bruno and connects with its own head disorienting it. Bruno requests it not to be afraid of him and asks it to let him know what it is feeling. He closes his eyes and concentrates for some time. He then starts feeling around Onix's body. Eventually he finds something between Onix's rocks. Asking Onix to bear with the momentary pain, he strains before pulling out a Sandslash. The heroes are shocked and Ash checks it on his Pokédex. Apparently the Sandslash was irritating Onix the whole time and causing it to act aggressively. Bruno lets the Ground-type Pokémon go and asks Onix if it wants to come with him. Onix accepts and Bruno catches it in a Poké Ball. He jumps back up to Ash, Misty, and Brock. He then tells them the true secret is for Pokémon and humans to care for each other like Ash and Pikachu. Both of them look at each other and start laughing. Bruno farewells the trio telling Ash he looks forward to facing him in battle. Ash and Pikachu laugh together as they become one day closer to the Pokémon League.
Over time, Ash's dedication to his goal paid off. After earning his first eight Badges, Ash went on to compete in the Indigo Plateau Conference, advancing to the fifth round - one further than Gary - and ending up in the Top 16.
Following Ash's defeat in the Indigo League, Professor Oak asked him to travel to Valencia Island in the Orange Archipelago to retrieve the GS Ball from a Pokémon Professor named Ivy. While in the Orange Archipelago, Ash learned of the Orange Crew - an elite group of Trainers not unlike Gym Leaders that provided challenges for Trainers to overcome in the Orange League. After Brock decided to stay with Professor Ivy and help her with her work, Ash and Misty were joined by an enthusiastic Pokémon watcher named Tracey Sketchit. Ash, Misty, and Tracey then traversed the Orange Islands on the back of a lost Lapras whom Ash caught. He eventually defeated the four members of the Orange Crew and finally won the Orange League by triumphing over the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader,Drake. Before leaving the Orange Archipelago though, Ash managed to find his Lapras's pod and released it back into the wild. Upon returning to Pallet Town, Ash discovered that Brock had returned due to some unknown incident that left the aspiring Pokémon Breeder in dread of even hearing Professor Ivy's name. Tracey, meanwhile, stayed at Professor Oak's laboratory as Professor Oak's assistant, and Brock rejoined Ash and Misty. After his victory in the Orange League, Ash encountered Gary again, and after being defeated in a one-on-one battle, he learned that his rival had been training hard in order to participate in the Silver Conference in Johto.
Excited at the prospect of meeting new Pokémon and facing Gary again, Ash and friends left for the Johto region to collect eight Badges from the Gym Leaders there and compete in their Pokémon League. Much like his travels through Kanto, Ash, Misty, and Brock impacted the many people and Pokémon they met along the way, one of them being Kurt, to whom Ash delivered the GS Ball. In the middle of his travels, they visited the Whirl Islands, who, along with Ritchie, helped save Silver, a child Lugia, and its parent, from the evil machinations of Team Rocket. Ash along with Misty then competed in the Whirl Cup, with Ash placing in the top 8, who was defeated by Misty in a 3-on-3, though she also ended up losing in the next round.
Ash encountered Gary occasionally in Johto, and while they were still rivals, Gary seemed to view Ash with slightly more respect than before. Indeed, Ash's growth of character was evident throughout this story arc as he continued to think more and more about his Pokémon and less and less about himself. After earning eight Johto Gym Badges, Ash entered the Silver Conference along with Gary. Finally, the two rivals battled in the tournament in a Full Battle. Although it was very close indeed, Ash emerged victorious against his rival for the first time in his career as a Pokémon Trainer, marking one of the biggest turning points in said career. After the battle, Gary and Ash departed on good terms with each other, finally overcoming their boyhood animosity and recognizing each other as equals. However, Ash's journey through Kanto and Johto came to an end when he was forced to split up with Brock and Misty when the two of them received messages to return home.
Diamond and Pearl
Following Ash's victory over the Battle Frontier, May set her sights on Pokémon Contests in the Johto region and traveled there while Max returned home to Petalburg City in Hoenn. After encountering and battling his old rival, Gary (who has now become a Pokémon researcher), and learning of a new region with new Pokémon, Ash decided to leave for the Sinnoh region to earn the Gym Badges available there. Like before, he took only Pikachu with him at first, but brought hisAipom along when she snuck onto the ship Ash was leaving on. While Brock did not accompany Ash to Sinnoh, he did travel with him through Sinnoh like he had for Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn. This time, they were accompanied by another aspiring Pokémon Coordinator named Dawn. Like he did for May, Ash enthusiastically supported Dawn in her endeavors to become a Top Coordinator, just as she supported him in his Gym battles.
While traveling through Sinnoh, Ash formed a heated rivalry with a Trainer named Paul. Throughout Ash's journey, Paul would constantly put him down and the two often argued over their nearly opposite training styles. While Paul was harsh, distant, and sometimes plain cruel to his Pokémon, Ash insisted that the best way to raise Pokémon was through patience, caring and friendship. Their rivalry came to a head after they competed in a Tag Battle Tournament together, when Paul released his Chimchar after it failed to meet his expectations. Ash then decided to take in the Chimp Pokémon, and promised to make it strong using his own philosophy.
While in Sinnoh, Ash competed in two Pokémon Contests - once in Jubilife City and a second time in the Wallace Cup upon Wallace's recommendation. He also competed against several Pokémon Stylistsin the Hearthome Collection fashion show in Arriving in Style!, where he ended up in third place, winning the Unique Award for his original performance.
As Ash and his friends journeyed through Sinnoh, they ended up becoming heavily involved with legends of Sinnoh, with Ash being personally chosen by Azelf of the Lake guardians. Along with Cynthia,Looker and Team Rocket, they faced of against Pokémon Hunter J as well as the evil Team Galactic. Thanks to their efforts, the Sinnoh region was spared from Cyrus's insane scheme.
Ash eventually obtained all of the Sinnoh Gym Badges he needed to enter Sinnoh's Pokémon League Conference. During his battles in the Lily of the Valley Conference, he managed to advance to the Top 4. For the second time since meeting Paul (the first being in a PokéRinger tournament during which Ash's Staravia evolved into a Staraptor and defeated Paul's Honchkrow), Ash managed to defeat his bitter rival, using Infernape (who had evolved from the Chimchar Paul abandoned) to deal the finishing blow. This caused Paul to finally acknowledge Ash as a Trainer of some merit, thus ending their arguments. Ash later fought against Tobias, becoming the only known Trainer to defeat his Darkrai. Although Ash ultimately lost the battle, he was not overly upset, as he was closer to his Pokémon than ever before. At the conclusion of the Diamond & Pearl series, Ash, Dawn, and Brock split up and went their separate ways, with Brock confirming that he would not be joining Ash on his travels to Unova as he decided to pursue his new dream of being a Pokémon doctor.
Despite having some impressive physical abilities, Ash almost never engages in combat himself and instead commands his Pokemon. And despite the fact that Ash's goal is no longer to catch em all, he has still acquired quite a lot of Pokemon throughout his travels And many of these Pokemon are also quite powerful.
Also, while not capable of talking per se, Ash can sense what a Pokemon is trying to tell him.
As for the actual Pokemon that Ash owns, many of them are quite impressive when it comes to battle. In fact, three of them have defeated legendaries in combat. These Pokemon are:
- Pikachu, who has defeated two
But beyond that he has captured many more Pokemon. The following is a list of all of his Pokemon, organized in chronological order by capture/used Temporarily . (Beedrill)

According to Misty, Ash really only earned 3 Badges and the other 5 Badges were given to him on a technicality:
- In Showdown in Pewter City, Brock gives Ash the Boulder Badge after Pikachu's Electric attack caused a fire, ultimately setting off the Gym's sprinklers and weakening Onix enough to allow Pikachu to fight back with another Electric attack.
- Misty's sisters gave the Cascade Badge to Ash in The Water Flowers of Cerulean City after Pikachu's Thunderbolt saved the Gym and its Water Pokémon from Team Rocket's giant vacuum machine.
- Electric Shock Showdown is the first episode in which Ash can actually be considered as having earned a badge. His Pikachu struck Lt. Surge's Raichu in the stomach, hammering it with what can be described as an electric Slam attack, thus earning Ash the Thunder Badge.
- Sabrina's Kadabra was defeated in Haunter versus Kadabra only as a result of Haunter making Sabrina and Kadabra laugh so much as to render the latter unable to battle. Thanks to the Haunter Ash met in the Pokémon Tower, the Marsh Badge was given to him by Sabrina's Father.
- The Rainbow Badge was given to Ash after he saved Erika's Gloom from her burning Gym caused by Team Rocket's blaster bomb in Pokémon Scent-sation!.
- Ash earned the Soul Badge in The Ninja Poké-Showdown after his Charmander defeated Koga's Golbat with Ember and Fire Spin.
- In Volcanic Panic Ash's Charizard delivered a devastating defeat to Blaine's Magmar by using an aerial Submission followed by a Seismic Toss. Thus Ash leaves Cinnabar Island having earned the Volcano Badge.
- Ash's eighth and final Gym Badge was given to him after Jessie, James and Meowth accidentally rigged their own platform to explode, blasting themselves off in The Battle of the Badge. The Earth Badge is then seen falling into Ash's hands as the Viridian City Gym collapses.
There is also an entire league exclusive to the anime where the four Gym Leaders all have special requirements in order to gain their Gym Badges, the Orange League, located on the Orange Islands.
- Ash finds the first Orange Islands Gym in Fit to be Tide. There he challenges Cissy for the Coral Eye Badge. However, they do not participate in a typical Pokémon Battle; instead he and Cissy go head to head in three water-based physical challenges using their Water Pokémon.
- In Navel Maneuvers Ash travels to Navel Island where he runs into Danny, a man who he presumes to be another challenger against the Navel Gym. Danny turns out to be the Gym Leader and offers Ash three challenges, winning a Sea Ruby Badge only if he won two out of three. Ash loses the first one, but manages to accidentally win the second with some help from Charizard, and win the third.
- Ash challenges pompous Rudy in Misty Meets Her Match. Rudy first assigns him an attack challenge in which Ash has to use his Pokémon to knock down all the targets on a tricky water course. Ash technically misses one, but it's not acknowledged in the show and Ash passes this pre-test. Secondly, Ash faces an three-on-three battle with Rudy with Pokémon of the same type battling each other. Ash wins and earns the Spike Shell Badge.
- Double Battles were introduced officially for the first time in Pokémon Double Trouble in Ash's fourth and final Orange Crew Gym battle against Luana, who specializes in them. Here Ash used Pikachu and a newly-obedient Charizard to defeat Luana and earn the Jade Star Badge.
In the Johto region, one needs to earn eight badges in order to participate in the Silver League.
- Brock's Pokemon Food
- Grotle Nut
- GS Ball
- Kabuto Fossil
- Rubber Gloves
- Slowpoke Costumes
- Snover Berries
- Thunder Stone(X2)
- Ash wants to win a Badge using the Pokemon that he is training and no one else's.
- Ash wanted to defeat Brock legitly.
- According to Brock Ash simply shows off your true power when you're in a battle. Desk-type work ? That's really not your thing. Don't worry. It doesn't change the fact that you're a genius at Gym Battles, really !
- Ash likes a good challenging victory.
- According to Brock it's not about the Quantity of Pokemon that you catch but the Quality of them.
- Well if at first you don't succeed you try again and again.

Picks up, runs with, and then hurls a log twice his size It's not clear how heavy this log is, though some fan calcs have put it at over 1000 lbs.
Hit in the shoulder by a vine whip from an extremely powerful Venasaur, and is completely fine. It's not clear how strong this Venasaur was, but it was extremely strong and a different Venasaur could use vine whip to bring down a tree
Tanks a volt tackle from his Pikachu, and Pikachu's volt tackle is capable of plowing through rock. Also note that Pikachu was confused at this point, so it had no idea it was attacking Ash.
While Pikachu is under the effects of mind control, he tanks a thunderbolt, is thrown by quick attack, then hit by an iron tail(which is capable of shattering boulders), and then hit by another thunderbolt for good measure.
(it should be noted that some this section has to do with one of the movies, specifically Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, which some debate the canon of. However, since Ash's aura has come into play in some episodes, one can most likely assume that the movie is canon)
Aura is the name for the spiritual life energy that is possessed by all living things in the Pokemon universe. This includes both Pokemon and humans. However, Ash's aura is significantly stronger than that of almost any other person.
He is also capable of projecting his aura out of his body, and in dire situations can project it into other in order to heal them. However, doing this is extremely dangerous and can prove fatal if to much aura is given
Ash is an incredibly, sometimes ridiculously tenacious person. He has lost battles time and time again and keeps coming back and trying again, never getting discouraged. He has some impressive willpower feats, such as:
Relationship with his Pokemon
Ash Ketchum cares extremely deeply about his Pokemon, and views them as his closest friends rather than his pets. He has shown time and time again that he would do anything to help them. Just to give a few examples, he:
Ash's Pokemon are also extremely loyal to him and would do anything to protect him. Yes, even Charizard
Throws himself in front of a flock of Spearow in order to protect a Pikachu that didn't even like him It was this act that made Pikachu become loyal
Spends the entire night caring for his Charizard after it was badly hurt in battle. It was this act that caused Charizard to become loyal.
People often claim that Ash is just an idiot that doesn't use any strategy, but really that statement is completely wrong. Okay, in the first season it might be right. Okay, and maybe in early Unova. But beyond that Ash is actually a very good trainer. As for his strategy, Ash is not one to plan things out in advance. Rather he relies on his quick thinking and creativity in order to defeat his opponents.
Note that the following are just a few examples, because if I put every example we'd be here all day.
During his battle with Clemont his Goodra is paralyzed and Clemont is using an electric terrain that boosts the power of his Luxray. Flashing back to the first day he met Goodra, Ash figures out how to take away all of Clemont's advantages in a single move.
While at a severe disadvantage battling a Walrein in a pool, Ash notices that Walrein's attacks are freezing the water. He then tricks the opposing trainer into freezing the entire pool, taking away her main advantage.
After noticing that Bunnelby uses its hands as ears, tricks it into grabbing Pikachu's tail. This renders its main fighting style useless and allows Pikachu to land a point blank strike. Notably, the opponent he was facing was a gym leader.
During a tag battle tournament Ash was paired up with Paul (his rival during that series). During one battle Paul essentially gave up on his Chimchar and stopped participating in the battle. Ash then took command of his rival's Pokemon and single-handedly won the battle. It should also be noted that Ash and Paul won the tournament despite having the worst team work out of any team.
Ash then takes this Chimchar onto his own team after Paul releases it for being too weak. After traveling with Ash it fully evolves and masters its blaze ability. Durning the Sinnoh League tournament it goes on to beat half of Paul's team, taking down hisAggron, Ninjask, and Electivire
Ash took in a Froakie that had abandoned or been abandoned by several previous trainers due to not listening to commands. Ash managed to gain its full loyalty in less than an episode
Ash has actually invented his own move known as counter shield, which involves a Pokemon spinning around while firing an attack both to defend and attack. This move is so good that it was copied by Dawn, Fantina (a gym leader), and even Paul.
This next one isn't a strategy feat but is still interesting to mention. In one episode of the current series Ash visits an alternate reality called the mirror world, where everyone's personality is the opposite of their normal personality (for example, Team Rocket are a group of heroes). And in this world Mirror Ash (who is supposed to be the opposite of Ash) is portrayed as a complete crybaby and an incompetent trainer. Hell, the way Ash convinces Mirror Serena that he's not from that world is by beating her in a battle (as she claims she would never lose to her version of Ash).
Thus far, Ash has won 8 Kanto gym badges (admittedly less than half of these were legitimate), 4 Orange League gym badges,8 Johto gym badges, 8 Hoenn gym badges, 8 Sinnoh Gym Badges, 8 Unova gym badges, and 6 Kalos gym badges
Defeated Drake, the champion of the Orange League who had been undefeated for some time, and became champion of the Orange League.
Defeated Gary Oak in the only 6 vs 6 battle the two have ever had. (It should be noted that in both league competitions where Ash and Gary were competing, Ash did better than Gary) For reference, this is how strong Gary is.
Even some of Ash's losses are impressive. In the Sinnoh League he went up against a trainer named Tobias who had swept through every gym and every league competitor with his Darkrai. And then he went up against Ash. Ash not only took down his Darkrai, but his Latios as well (both of which are powerful legendaries). This means Ash did better against him than literally any other trainer in Sinnoh. For reference, this is how strong Tobias is.
Ash's Pokedex Entries
- Bulbasaur. It bears the seed of a plant on its back from birth. The seed slowly develops. Researchers are unsure whether to classify Bulbasaur as a plant or animal. Bulbasaur are extremely calm and very difficult to capture in the wild. Solar Beam, Bulbasaur's strongest attack. Light is collected and formed into a powerful beam with intensive force.
- The Seed Pokémon, Ivysaur, Bulbasaur's evolved form. The bulb on its back absorbs nourishment and blooms into a large flower.
- Venusaur, the final form of the Bulbasaur evolution. This Seed Pokémon soaks up the sun's rays as a source of energy. Venusaur uses its large petals to capture sunlight and transform it into energy.
- Charmander. A flame burns on the tip of its tail from birth. It is said that a Charmander dies if its flame ever goes out. Charmander's special attack, Rage.
