Goals?[edit source]

What exactly needs to be done with this article to bring it up to spec?

Also, should this be merged with Character Biographies...or should the main characters each have a page, to be placed in a Category:Character biographies or similar? -- Marius the Wanderer 19:20, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

It's a main character. It's better to have it's own article. In fact, every character must have it's own article --Ciencia Al Poder (Discussion) w:t-en WikiDex 19:58, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

I think it's ok to make his birthday on March. 31, this because of the fact that when the anime started on April 1, 1997 in japan, as it start, ash proclaims that, that was the day he finally turned 10 years old, at that time, it was night and it was his bed time, although April 1 may also be the best case, it seems to be the most logical idea for me --after all i'm not sure if he's even fourteen like it says but that also seems to be valid as well, what do you think? -- Mcbowser 08:19, 4 march 2008 (UTC)

Future Pokemon?[edit source]

Ash got a Soothe Bell after he and Paul won a double battle contest. This sort of gives away a future pokemon. Soothe Bells help "gives" pokemon happiness. I have a list of pokemon that evolve from happiness and what they evolve to.

Golbat-Crobat Chansey-Blissey (Brock has a happiny, could give or trade to Ash) Eevee-Espeon Eevee-Umbreon Cleffa-Clefairy Igglybuff-Jigglypuff Togepi-Togetic Azurill-Marill Budew-Roselia Buneary-Lopunny (Dawn's) Chingling-Chimecho Riolu-Lucario

Best ones: Cleffa, Igglybuff, Budew, Riolu, Eevee

Pichu and Munchlax also evolve with happiness, but Ash already has a Pikachu and Snorlax

This is Anakin99, signing out. May the force be with you!

Don't want to ruin it but Brock's happiniy evolved. From:Wiki contributor (I don't have a login.)

Machoke ?[edit source]

He doesn't have a Machoke with him all he has is 6 Pokemon on Hand cuase that's the limit Beakerfreak93 14:22, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Father[edit source]

A lot(and I mean a LOT) of fans believe that Giovanni is Ash's father. Think it's true, or have people just been watching too much Star Wars? Absol X 00:43, 29 August 2008 (UTC) Doubt it, but fans believe it enough to have a mention... Grovyle the Thief 21:40, 10 June 2009 (UTC)I hope notpiglatin6 00:08, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

In the first episode Ash watches a pokemon battle on Tv. My opinion is that the man with the Nidorino and Onix is Ash's father. (writed by a norwegian 12 year old boy)

Father[edit source]

If Ash's dad is really Giovanni,then wouldn't Team Rocket just leave ash alone.I'v seen a picture of the gym where the Team Rocket pokemon practice,and there's a poster(a BIG poster)with Ash and Pikachu on it.Plus underneath the photo, in big red letters I saw the word "WANTED".I doubt that Giovanni is Ash's dad.Maybe fans watch to much Star Wars and Toy Story.Or maybe Giovanni is just a bad father.

how do you practice playing pokemon tcg when theres nobody to practice with

There's no solid proof Giovanni himself put that wanted poster of Ash up. Plus—and most Diamond Shippers (Giovanni/Delia; this would greatly support Giovanni being Ash's father) may agree—Giovanni has kept-SPECIFICALLY- Jessie, James, and Meowth on Ash's tail to capture Pikachu, despite the waning patience he has with them, and the trio's repeated failures, without sending them back-up. This could be because he doesn't want to truly catch Ash and Pikachu, but merely keep him and his friends on their toes and give him a secondary goal to drive him, next to the Sinnoh League.

pikachu[edit source]

pikachu has been in it's pokeball at least twice

1: in the first pokemon movie when mewtwo tried to catch it

2 at the very beginning before ash sore it was a pikachu

Sorry to crash it, but i just saw Mewtwo Strikes back (not Mewtwo Returns) and he goes into A pokeball, as in Mewtwo's trademark blach pokeball. Ash doesn't carry Pika's pokeball, coz hes already got bulbasaur, charizard, squirtle, tauros, kingler and muk with him.

By an Unknown.

Could someone please edit this page with Ash's future pokemon? Ash is revealed to get a Torterra and Infernape as shown in the new opening 'Greatest Everyday'.

Ash's Mother[edit source]

There was an episode of Pokemon were another woman stated herself to be Ash's mom but I do not remember the episode nor the woman's name can anyone help?

Re:Ash's Mother[edit source]

How do you know it wasn't Delia Ketchum? Team Rocket often dress up to pretend to be someone their not - e.g. James as Professor Oak. Can you remember the theme song? The Region or Location? Any Characters? Also please sign your messages.

They are probably thinking of Hypno's Naptime where a woman thinks Ash is her missing son or OI027: Double Trouble Pokémon! where Luana thinks Ash is her son that is off traveling. Crimsonnavy (C·S·B) 18:38, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

ash's AGE[edit source]

Pay attention. Ash isn't ten. After obtaining the 8th badge, Ash says its been a year since he left home when he gets to Pallet Town. So he's at least 11. Considering the likely possibility that a year goes by in each region journey (basing it off the legnth of the kanto arc, and battle frontier was about 1/2 the length of a normal region story length) its safe to say 5 and a half years will have gone by in the pokemon world; once he's done in sinnoh. Maybe more. Joshuaisincollege 20:57, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

He always looks the same though. lol. --User:Jargoness/sig 23:01, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
I editted this page not too long ago. He's probably about 13. YoungOtakuNerd (talk) 00:09, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

voice actors[edit source]

in norway ash have a male voice actor. that makes him sound much more mature in norway —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

in the english dp series he don't sound like Ash.GalvantulaPikachu 18:49, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Is he ever going to grow up?[edit source]

I remember Ash Ketchum back when I was his age or a couple of years older than him, I saw when he first came out in the Kanto region. That was almost ten years ago and the boy should at least be 20 by now but I've heard that he's still like age 13....I'm not saying that the several generations are horrible or anything like that but this kinda of weird and ridiculous b/c ash should grow up. I think that it would be cool if that happened and another thing....people have been asking me about who his father is, rumor had it that back 2008 or 2009 they were going to finally show who ash's father is but they never did. I don't know how long you guys plan on making ash a child but eventually people might get sick of him being a kid......anyway other than that my nieces and nephews and their friends and including my 2 year old son loves the shows and games.

i like him young but its a cartoon and cartoones are supposed to that did mickey mouse grow up or was it walt disney besides he might die and who would take his place. 18:13, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

i'd say 03:18, July 14, 2011 (UTC)

How about the Raticate ash got?[edit source]

Ash had a Raticate becaused he traded it with butterfree but he missed butterfree so he got it back. I think we put a Raticate in Traded Away because he really did have a Raticate.

He later traded the raticate back for his butterfree again because he missed it so much. And of course the last time we see that butterfree was in the episode when it went off to start a family with the pink butterfree.

Tsutarja[edit source]

Ash has a Tsutarja. His Snivy knows Leaf Tornado not Leaf Storm

Mysterious person, All I know is that she knows: Leaf Blade, Leaf Tornado, And Attract. LMFS 04:40, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Giovanni- The Possible Father[edit source]

Okay, we all know that Giovanni could be Ash's father. But, if he was, why would we sent Jessie, James and Meowth on his own son's tail? This is a possible idea; if Giovanni was Ash's father, maybe HE wanted to look after the Pokemon Ash caught and drop off and Prof. Oak's lab, but Ash wouldn't let him due to only caring about Pokemon's strength like Paul, and he was the leader of a group that stole Pokemon, and they've been fighting alot since Kingler was sent to Prof. Oak's lab as a Krabby? Remember, thar was just a idea. GGD, the Charizard fan! Talk to me! (and notice my PokeBall colored signature...) 01:23, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

There are many talk that Giovanni was his father but it was confirmed that his dad was traveling so it's not possible that Giovanni was his dad, and giovanni has already a son: Silver. Also though it's okay with your prediction,

my two predictions were either for ash's dad:

1. Ash's Dad is dead (then ash got traumatized by it. that's why he acts immature and he ahs two kind of scars at under his eyes?)

2. Red

3. Giovanni

AdventureWriter28-Leave Message Anytime 00:40, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

You have a bit of a point; Ash's dad is traveling. But maybe, just maybe, Delia just says that his dad is "traveling" because Giovanni and his working with Team Rocket caused them to devorce due to Giovanni working with an evil team?

Yeah, probably i want to really someday see somekind of dramatic happening of Ash's childhood or at least he meets his dad AdventureWriter28-Leave Message Anytime 02:10, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Guys, It's not Giovanni, Delila never even dated Giovanni! There is not any proof. Satoshi Tajiri didn't say so. Let me know if I'm wrong.LMFS 04:42, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit source]

In the Pokémon that Ash has, the descriptions of them are completely the same as in These sentences should definitely be changed around a bit as serebii is not accurate anymore (I would have changed some stuff around but the page was locked, very frustrating). Homer Dru 04:40, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Ash's Top Pokemon in my opinion
1. Charizard
2. Sceptile
4. Garchomp (if he trained Gible)
5. Pidgeot
6. Snorlax

RE: Ash doesn't have top Pokemon. They are all pretty much equal, because Ash shows the same amount of love and concern to each and every Pokemon that comes under his care.

^^ Are you forgetting about the 30+ pokemon he leaves with professor oak that he uses like once and then never thinks about them again?

Very true User:Slayingthehalcyon/sig2

Yes, but he wants to start each reigon fresh, but he needs at least 1 Pokemon to start a new reigon. He uses Pikachu since it was his first pokemon. It's like plying the games. You'd play through the games for fun, right? You wouldn't just send previous region Pokemon immediately and have no fun, right?

Ash + Misty[edit source]

I read in the Misty page that she's in love with him, if it's true we need to add this information in the Trivia.

Where did you see that? Crimsonnavy (Talk·Contributions·Blog) 03:48, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
There are some hints Ash may have a crush on Misty as well. In the trivia we need to add that Ash is accused mostly of being a couple with Misty. Team Rocket, Danny from the Orange Islands season, Melody from Pokemon 2000, Tracey, Brock and some other characters have teased Ash and Misty about having feelings for each other.
They do show some affection for each other...
Bullet Francisco 02:21, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
With regards to shipping, I think we should be careful not to add bias (if we add anything about it at all). Shippers can be rather sensitive to that and it could result in a lot of pointless arguing. Personally I think we shouldn't add anything, as the main character most of the main ships involve him (poke, advance, pearl, negai... then you've got pallet, boulder, league etc.) Jazzcookie 13:31, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

Ash and Gary[edit source]

How is Ash 10 and Gary 12 or 14?

They're both the same age, it's fixed now. Thanks for pointing this out. Jazzcookie 13:22, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

No Hat[edit source]

Ash looks better with hat off in my opinion . I think Richey and Sparkey would of made better main characters ...

Hey do you guys and girls want to talk about pokemon you like?

Ash's Pokemon[edit source]

Do you think Ash should be on the category for his Pokémon, he's not a Pokemon? It's over 9000!! 04:28, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

When do Ash go and pick up his Pidgeot in Viridian forest?

I think it would be cool if Ash used this pokemon in a battle in the Unova league:

Bulbasaur, Charizard, Squirtle, Pidgeot, Butterfree, Pikachu

Befreinding Pokemon[edit source]

Can Someone add Riolu, Giritina, Arceus, Dialga and Palkia to the 'Befreinded Pokemon' section. I mean, Ash Befriended Giritina, Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus at the end of MS012 Didn't he? And He also befreinded that trainers Riolu in 'Pokemon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu!' Add Them PLEASE! VICTINI AND KROKOROCK AREN'T ENOUGH!!!!!!! <:-(

Ash has pratically brefriended every legendary. If we follow your idea then we have to add Lugia, Mewtwo, Latias, (Latios... maybe) and tons of others

This page is in desperate need of cleaning up![edit source]

Who was the dumb*** that put Ash is somewhat like Tyson Granger from Beyblade's Original Series? The Pokemon anime came before that. Also, that is NOT TRIVIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is just opinion.

Also, lots of the this page needs cleaning up. Some stuff here is not even fact or is not complete or even correct. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Removed the comparison. – Crimsonnavy T  S  17:55, January 30, 2012 (UTC)

Ash's Pokemon Description change[edit source]

Additional things:

The description that is under the Pokemon section doesn't have proper grammer. I feel it should describe Ash's Pokemon collection as a whole, not just what he did in Unova to get some Pokemon. For example, put this:

Ash always show a lot of compassion and love for his Pokemon. He usually puts their interests before his, and helps them with their various problems. He usually uses Pokemon that are fast and perform powerful attacks, but is willing to work with any Pokemon that comes under his care.

Primeape[edit source]

In your description of Ash's Primeape, you CANNOT say that it is unlikely for Ash to return for Primeape because he is easily distracted and forgets the obvious. This is just disgusting. THAT IS JUST OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Primeape is in "training", so it can be called whenever Ash wants. The writers of the show just haven't made Ash call his Primeape back,but at least we know they haven't forgotten: he was along with Ash's Pokemon in Spurt!

The writers can make Primeape come back whenever they want, they just probably need to find a way to bring him back.

WHO PUT THAT ASH'S HAIR RESEMBLES GOKU'S HAIR FROM DRAGON BALLZ? THAT IS JUST OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Spam[edit source]

The last couple of points in the trivia is spam. I think it should be OBVIOUS Ash is not a specified grass-type trainer.

what will be his futer pokemon in unova thst he will catch soon other then krodial.

Unova League[edit source]

I can't wait until Ash enters the Unova League, I'd like to see him use his new Pokemon (Krokorok, Unfezant, ect) with his old ones (Bulbasaur, Quilava, Sceptile, Gible, ect), I'd also like to see Charizard and Primeape again. Ciao! I'll send a greetings card! 07:27, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hey All Trainer Micah

FATHER[edit source]

In the first episode Ash is watching a pokemon battle on TV. I think Ash's father is the man that used Nidorino and Onix. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

It's suggested that the trainer owning those Pokémon is Bruno of the Knato Elite Four. – Crimsonnavy T  S  22:28, May 19, 2012 (UTC)

Ladies' Man?!?[edit source]

Whether you like him or not, there have been a few unnamed girls that have certain feelings for Ash Ketchum but as always his "denseness", as you would everyone called, made him which I dub thee a nickname "the Aura Attractor."

Its not just that, some main characters had it for Ash, including Bianca(heroes latios&latias), Misty, and some others. (latias likes Ash too)


Why is his last name ketchum? Trevor of terror 21:41, May 23, 2012 (UTC)

Legend Badge[edit source]

he just needed to win the last badge in Opelucid City Gym.
