He is a 10-year-old [[Pokémon Trainer]] from [[Pallet Town]] in the [[Kanto]] region that has always dreamed of becoming a [[Pokémon Master]]. He is the first human character to be introduced in the series and is currently the only character shown to have been to all of the [[regions]]. Ash is the winner of the [[Orange League]] and is also the [[Alola]] region's [[Pokémon Champion]], receiving the title after winning its first [[Manalo Conference|Pokémon League Conference]]. As soon as he turned 10 years old, Ash rushed to [[Professor Oak (anime)|Professor Oak]]'s Laboratory to get his [[Starter Pokémon|first Pokémon]]. Originally wanting to choose [[Squirtle]], Ash ended up receiving the Pokémon [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]] instead, as he arrived late (thus leaving him with no other Starters to choose from). 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]] later in the day thanks to Ash's recklessness, Ash attempted to save Pikachu from them. Seeing that Ash was so determined to help him, Pikachu protected Ash from the Spearow by electrocuting the entire flock (which was thanks to being struck by lightning at that exact moment and having his Electric-type move supercharged). From then on, Pikachu and Ash became best friends. As an unskilled trainer, Ash traveled with [[Misty (anime)|Misty]] and [[Brock (anime)|Brock]] throughout the [[Kanto]] region, capturing new Pokémon along the way. Ash eventually managed to collect every badge from Kanto's Gym Leaders, allowing him to enter in the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]]. Since then, Ash has continued to travel, journeying through the various regions and making new friends such as [[Tracey Sketchit|Tracey]], [[May (anime)|May]], [[Max]], [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]], [[Iris (anime)|Iris]], [[Cilan (anime)|Cilan]], [[Clemont (anime)|Clemont]], [[Bonnie (anime)|Bonnie]], [[Serena (anime)|Serena]], [[Lana (anime)|Lana]], [[Kiawe (anime)|Kiawe]], [[Lillie (anime)|Lillie]], [[Sophocles (anime)|Sophocles]] and [[Mallow (anime)|Mallow]]. With each new region he traveled to, Ash continued to challenge all the Gym Leaders, entering [[Pokémon League Conference]]s 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. While Ash was traveling, he was constantly pursued by [[Team Rocket]]'s [[Jessie]], [[James]], and [[Meowth (anime)|Meowth]], who wanted his Pikachu. They chased him across all the regions so far, and are still chasing them to this day. Team Rocket never managed to capture Pikachu though, due to Ash's other Pokémon and friends helping him. Ash is currently working at the [[Cerise Laboratory]] as a research assistant along with his new friend [[Goh]] while competing in the [[World Coronation Series]]. ==Appearance== <gallery type="slideshow"> Ash OS.png|Ash's outfit in The Beginning series and Gold and Silver series hoennash.png|Ash's outfit in the Ruby and Sapphire series DPash.png|Ash's outfit in the Diamond and Pearl series Ash BW.gif|Ash's outfit in the Black & White series Ash XY 4.png|Ash's outfit in the XY and XYZ series Ash SM.png|Ash's outfit in the Sun & Moon series Ash PJ.png|Ash's outfit in the Pokémon Journeys series </gallery> Ash is a skinny, slender young boy with dark black hair, slightly tan skin, and brown eyes with two distinctive lightning bolt-like markings underneath each one. Ash's pupils were not visible during the Indigo League and through the Diamond & Pearl series until the Best Wishes series made them more profound and distinguishable. While Ash wears a few different outfits, he always wears a cap, which changes depending on the region he is in. Without a cap, Ash is shown to have a cowlick and a narrow, triangular, and edgy tuft of hair in the middle of his forehead that comes to a point on the right side. ===The Beginning and Gold and Silver=== In The Beginning, through to the Gold and Silver series, Ash wore a white and blue short-sleeved jacket with gold trim, a white collar and sleeves, a dark 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 cap with a green stylized "L". ===Ruby and Sapphire=== In the Ruby and Sapphire series, Ash appeared with new clothing. He wore a black and red cap with a green Poké Ball on it, a blue sleeveless hoodie with gold trim and a white hood, a black short sleeve undershirt with a red stripe, black fingerless gloves with light green borders, light blue jeans, and blue sneakers. ===Diamond and Pearl=== In the Diamond and Pearl series, Ash wore a black vest with a white collar and yellow stripe, a white short sleeved undershirt, blue cargo jeans, and black and red sneakers. He also wore a red cap with a blue Poké Ball print. Ash wore the same fingerless gloves he wore in the Advanced series. ===Black & White=== In the Black & White series, Ash wore a red and white hat with a blue Poké Ball print, a blue and white hooded jacket with a golden zipper, black baggy jeans, black fingerless gloves with red borders, and red high top sneakers. ===XY and XYZ=== In the XY and XYZ series, Ash wore a blue collared shirt with short sleeves and white trim, a black undershirt, darker blue jeans, a red and white hat, and red high top sneakers. Ash also wore the same fingerless gloves he wore in the Best Wishes series ===Sun & Moon=== In the Sun & Moon series, Ash wore a loose short-sleeved shirt with white and blue stripes, brown Capri pants with red outlines, baggy pockets and red folded sleeves at the edge, and blue sneakers. His cap was red, dark blue, and gray, and the Poké Ball design was white. Ash also kept a silver Z-Ring on his left wrist, which was later changed into a black Z-Power Ring. Unlike in other regions, Ash didn't wear fingerless gloves while he was in [[Alola]]. ===Journeys=== In the Journeys series, Ash wears a blue vest with yellow outlines, a white undershirt with short sleeves and a red stripe, indigo shorts with black outlines, and black sneakers with blue highlights. He also wears a red cap with a black Poké Ball design formed into the letter C. During his second trip to Galar, Ash obtained a Dynamax Band, which is white with blue and red on the end of each side. ==Personality== [[File:XY121 14.png|thumb|left|Ash hugging other Pokémon.]] Ash is very determined to be a great Pokémon Trainer. Also, Ash is a very strong person and shows a lot of sympathy towards Pokémon, usually helping and befriending them through his long journey. As a result, Ash doesn't like Trainers who mistreat Pokémon, such as [[Damian]] and [[Shamus]]. Ash is even a role model for many people such as [[May (anime)|May]], [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]], [[N (anime)|N]], [[Serena (anime)|Serena]], [[Lillie (anime)|Lillie]] and [[Goh]]. Also, Ash often astounds people with his skills and ability. Ash's strategy and tactics in battle is usually problem-solving, including thinking on his feet during special matches or that relate to the special abilities of Pokémon. Also, Ash even takes input from his friends and has always helped him whenever he was stuck in a jam. Emotion wise, Ash is generally kind, brave, enthusiastic, passionate and adventurous. However, Ash can be stubborn, hot-headed, short-tempered, cocky, reckless, and impulsive at times. During his journey, Ash realized that some of those traits were affecting him as they had caused him to lose some of his Gym battles. Recognizing this, Ash trained himself for both his rematches and to help keep those parts of himself in check so they wouldn't not only affect him in battle again but also outside of it as well. Although those traits still remain, they have been shown to be less of a problem in Ash's Pokémon battles. Through his hard work, Ash has corrected the hot-headed, cocky, and impulsive parts of his personality, although he still shows them when Pokémon were being mistreated, when some of his friends tease him, and for various other reasons. Since then, Ash has demonstrated much greater maturity and level-headedness both in and out of battles. In addition, Ash has shown to give everyone around him good advice in order to better themselves and their goals. Ash also has a fascination with science and technology, even though he cannot understand most of it. At times, Ash can have a hard time opening up, as he doesn't like to talk about his feelings and past. Ash also had difficult times when it comes to taking advice or criticism from others, especially from his friends, but that changed over time. While Ash has grown to be more open towards talking about his feelings and taking advice or criticism, he still has trouble opening up about his past sometimes. However, Ash does talk about the past with his friends and Pokémon whenever it comes up, if he needs someone to talk to, or if he feels like talking about it because it reflects a mistake of his. Despite being more open, Ash still shows his stubborn side at times, although it's mostly shown when he is depressed or upset. Ash is also honest and a Trainer that keeps his word as he usually doesn't break promises to his friends, family, and Pokémon, although he does the same thing for ones that aren't his. Sometimes, Ash makes promises to himself as well, which was shown during his first Pokémon League competition where he decided to not repeat the same mistakes he made in future League competitions. This was shown again after the events of the Kalos crisis as Ash blamed himself for what happened when he unknowingly revealed one of his abilities to a leader of a villainous organization, which ended up putting himself and his Pokémon, Pikachu and his Kalos Pokémon, endanger. After that event, Ash decided to keep his special abilities, Aura and Bond Phenomenon, hidden from others, even from some of his friends and Pokémon family along with his mother. When question about the skills or powers he possesses and the mysteries he holds, Ash had shown to panic about that or somewhat denies what he can do, which was mainly shown with Gladion and Goh, as he only sees himself as an ordinary Trainer just on his journey to reach his goals. However, Ash does use his unique skills every once in awhile as he would use them to help Pokémon or his friends and for various other reasons. Additionally, despite his confidence and zeal, Ash can be modest and humble as he sometimes gets embarrassed when complimented on his skills as a Trainer, but it doesn't happen very often. Also, Ash has shown an insecurities side as he does worry about what his friends that he travels or traveled with and his Pokémon family would think of him, shown when his mother would say embarrassing things about him in front of his friends or Pokémon and when he got [[SM043: When Regions Collide!|embarrassed by Brock and Misty]] as they reminded him about how he got their badges for petty reasons over getting them in battle right in front of his classmates, but the reason for that is because he wants everyone around him to see him for the person they came to known instead of who he use to be. However, Ash has seen that his friends and his Pokémon don't care about who he use to be, which not only shows that they have great faith in him but also that their true friends towards him. Ash's biggest fear is losing anyone he's really close to, especially his friends and family. However, Ash is afraid to lose his Pokémon family even more, due to Team Rocket's constant attempts to steal his Pokémon away from him. Similarly, Ash is afraid of putting everyone he cares about in danger. Ever since the time Pikachu [[RS089: A Scare to Remember|temporarily had amnesia and sided with Team Rocket]], Ash became afraid that his Pokémon might leave him the same way his partner and best friend almost did. Ash is also worried that he won't meet his Pokémon family's expectations or be strong enough for them. Because of his fears, Ash sometimes doubts his Pokémon potential, which also affects his faith and trust in them as well, especially when some of them display a unique kind of power in their strengths. In the XY series, Ash almost lost himself when he let his fears get to him but Serena reminded him of who he is and helped him get his act together. However, Ash does put his fears aside to help his Pokémon become stronger, which in turn helps him get over his fears altogether, albeit slowly. Because of that, Ash is often able to help Pokémon with a rare ability perfect their true power. Ash has also been shown to have a strong sense of justice. He doesn't hesitate to assist [[Officer Jenny]], the Pokémon Rangers, and the International Police in their missions. He has a hatred for evil organizations, such as [[Team Rocket]], [[Team Aqua]], [[Team Magma]], [[Team Galactic]], [[Team Plasma]], [[Team Flare]], and [[Team Skull]]. Due to having empathy for Pokémon, Ash also dislikes Pokémon Poachers such as Captain Crook, the Iron-Masked Marauder, Rico, and Hunter [[J]]. Ash regularly risks his own life to protect Pokémon and defeat criminals. [[File:Alola League Trophy.png|thumb|Ash after winning the Alola Pokémon League or the Manalo Conference.]] On the other side, Ash has a natural, inborn love for battling. He enjoys battling Gym Leaders and anyone who challenges him, especially Trainers with a similar zeal and passion as him. However, while Ash is passionate, a good battler, and has a lot of achievements under his belt, he loses most of the Pokémon Leagues he challenges. So far, Ash has only triumphed over the [[Orange League]] in the Orange Archipelago and the [[Manalo Conference]] in the Alola region. Despite his wins and losses, Ash knows he has a long way to go to make his dream a reality and continues traveling along with growing stronger to pursue it. Beside the Gym battles and Pokémon Leagues, Ash also enjoy competing in other special challenges and competitions such as the [[Battle Frontier]] in his home region Kanto, the [[The Rite of the Island Challenge|Trials and Grand Trials]] in the Alola region, and the [[World Coronation Series]]. ==Skills== [[File:Ash's climbing skills.jpg|thumb|left|Ash's climbing skills.]] Ash has quite a few abilities and skills. First and foremost is his athleticism, despite his young age, as Ash is very athletic and physically able. In fact, Ash was once even called a "human Mankey" because of his skill at climbing. Aside from climbing, Ash can run, swing on vines, carry heavy loads, and swim. Ash can also survive Pokémon attacks for a long period of time without taking too much damage, although it depends on the situation. Additionally, while Ash is a very talented battler, he also has some performing skills due to competing in a couple of [[Pokémon Contest]]s along with watching May and Dawn performances. Likewise, Ash has good fishing skills. Also, Ash has some cooking skills and does have good knowledge about Pokémon, due to spending a lot of time around friends who can cook and have deep knowledge about them. <gallery type="slideshow"> CoolAsh.png|Ash's Aura ability. XY100 12.png|Ash's Bond Phenomenon ability. SM054 19.png|Ash, and Pikachu using their Z-Move: 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt. PJ013 16.png|Ash and Pikachu using the power of Gigantamax. </gallery> Much like an Aura Guardian, Ash has the ability to sense and control [[Aura]]. Also, Ash has shown the ability to use [[Bond Phenomenon]], as showcased in the XY series with his Greninja. Ash even demonstrated great skills in utilizing [[Z-Moves]], as shown in the Sun & Moon series. In addition, Ash even created his own Z-Crystal, Pikashunium Z, and performed an exclusive Z-Move with Pikachu known as [[10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt]]. Also, Ash even demonstrated some skills in utilizing [[Dynamax]] and [[Gigantamax]], as shown in the Journey series. Unlike some Trainers, Ash is able to Gigantamax his Pikachu without having him return to his Poké Ball. [[File:Ash Azelf.png|thumb|left|Ash's connection with Azelf.]] Much like Dawn, Ash sometimes displays the ability to understand the feelings of Pokémon, due to spending a lot of time around them. His connection with Pokémon is so great that he even sometimes displays the ability of sharing a connection with Mythical or Legendary Pokémon. This is because of Ash's compassion and his strong will power to protect them; instances of it were shown when [[Azelf (anime)|Azelf]] chose to connect with Ash in the Diamond & Pearl series, Battle Dimension and Galactic Battles, and when [[Victini (MS014)|Victini]] linked up with him in the movie Black/White Victini and Zekrom/Reshiram. [[File:Ash Victini.jpg|thumb|Ash's link with Victini.]] When Ash has a connection with Mythical or Legendary Pokémon, he can feel their pain, sense if they have been captured, and see their thoughts or memories. On the other side of the link, the Pokémon can appear to Ash in his dreams to ask him for help, show him impending danger, or as a way of asking him to do something for them, as shown with Azelf, Victini, [[Solgaleo (anime)|Solgaleo]], and [[Lunala (anime)|Lunala]]. Ash has also shown the ability to hear what Legendary Pokémon are saying, shown with Solgaleo, Lunala, and [[Lugia (Journeys)|Lugia]]. At times, Ash has shown the ability to sense the presence of Pokémon or people whenever any of them were nearby or if they're in danger. One of Ash's other ability is that he can learn new things really fast as he picks it up right away, although there have been times that he needed to practice first before figuring it out. Also, during battle, Ash can come up with strategies real easily as he would use the environment to his advantages or find a flaw in his opponent's strategies. Ash's battling tactics skill is, as like other Pokemon trainers, he used type advantages against his opponents, but sometimes he use his Pokemon that are in a type disadvantages. Ash's methods of battling can be overwhelming his opponents by a combination of moves using physical and special kinds of moves. ==Relationships== ===Family=== ====Delia Ketchum==== [[File:Ash & Delia.png|thumb|left|Ash and Delia.]] Since Delia is Ash's mother, they have a healthy, loving relationship, although it does run into rocky spots at times. Ash loves his mother very much and cares about her, but he gets annoyed when she embarrasses him, especially in the original series, where she constantly reminded him to change his underwear every single day. When Delia got kidnapped in ''[[MS003: Pokémon The Movie 3 - The Spell of the Unown|The Spell of the Unown]]'', Ash went through great lengths to get her back. Ash appreciates when his mother comments on how much he has grown as a person and as a Pokémon Trainer, and he is very grateful that his mother supports him by watching his Pokémon League battles and helping him get ready to go on another journey. ===Friends=== ====Professor Oak==== [[File:Ash & Professor Oak.png|thumb|Ash and Professor Oak.]] Ash and Professor Oak have a very strong bond. This is because Oak is a family friend and has known Ash since he was little. In fact, Ash even went to Professor Oak's summer camp when he was a young boy, which was also where he met his friend Serena. Aside from the strong, almost family bond that Ash and Oak share, he also respects him as a researcher and professor. Ash sometimes goes to Professor Oak for advice and calls him whenever he needs one of the Pokémon that he has kept in storage as he trusts him to look after his Pokémon family while he travels. Much like his mother, Ash also appreciates whenever Professor Oak gives him support, whether it's for a Pokémon League tournament or for his new journeys. ====Gary Oak==== [[File:Ash & Gary.png|thumb|left|Ash and Gary.]] Ash and Gary have known each other since they were little, as they grew up together. Ash and Gary had a close friendship, but it ended when they became rivals and started their Pokémon journeys. Despite their rivalry, Ash and Gary still looked out for each other at times, showing that they were still friends. During their time in Johto, Ash and Gary were able to mend their friendship, as they grew close to one another again. Although Gary moved on to become a researcher like his grandfather and Ash continued his Pokémon journey, they remained friends, although they still have a bit of a friendly rivalry with each other. Ash gets annoyed when Gary teases him from time to time, but it's all in good fun. {{Clear}} ====Misty==== [[File:Ash & Misty.png|thumb|Ash and Misty.]] When Ash first met Misty, they didn't get off on the right foot. Ash was forced to "borrow" Misty's bike to save his partners life, and he accidentally destroyed the vehicle with Pikachu's Thundershock attack. While Ash initially didn't want Misty around and disliked that she kept following him, at first, as she claims that she was going to follow him around until he paid her back for her accidentally destroyed bike, though her reasons changed. Although, Ash eventually changed his opinion about Misty, as she became a mentor to him and helped him become a great Pokémon Trainer. Despite their initial differences and their occasional arguments, Ash eventually grew to care for Misty and became best friends with her, although they do tease each other from time to time. They have each other's backs and would do anything for each other. However, while Ash and Misty are best friends, they sometimes can be competitive with each other as they have a little bit of a friendly rivalry with one another as they try to show each other up. [[File:Yukata Ash and Misty.png|thumb|left|Ash and Misty in yukata outfits.]] After their travels in Kanto, Ash and Misty traveled through the Orange Islands and Johto together. After their journey through Johto, Ash and Misty [[GS157: Gotta Catch Ya Later!|parted ways]] when she was forced to run the Cerulean Gym while her sisters went on an “around the world” cruise, which they had won as a prize in a beauty contest. After Misty got her bike back, as it was repaired by the Viridian City’s Nurse Joy and returned to her, Ash was happy that his friend would get to her hometown much faster. However, Misty became upset with him when he believed that the repayment for her bike was the reason she traveled with him in the first place. Ash was clueless when Misty ran out of the Pokémon Center, but Brock helped him see that she wanted to continue traveling with them. Finding that Misty was in trouble, Ash and Brock rushed to her defense. Also, Ash assured Misty that their journey together was never truly about repayment for her bike. After everything was resolved, Ash and Misty parted ways to go back to their hometowns. [[File:Surfing Ash & Misty.png|thumb|Ash and Misty surfing together.]] Despite no longer traveling together, Ash and Misty, who decided to run the Cerulean Gym full time, maintained their strong friendship for one another. When Misty and Brock traveled to Alola, Ash was very pleased and enjoyed their time together, showing that their bond had not dwindled. ====Brock==== [[File:Ash & Brock.png|thumb|left|Ash and Brock.]] While Ash and Brock disagreed at first, they quickly became friends. Their bond soon became even stronger, resulting in them becoming best friends when they traveled the Kanto region together. When Brock stayed with Professor Ivy for a while, Ash understood his reasons. After Brock eventually returned, the two boys traveled together from Johto through Sinnoh. Through their travels, Ash grew to view Brock as a big brother figure and one of his mentors, as he would often give him helpful advice to better himself as a Trainer or help him see through his mistakes. Ash and Brock are always there for each other. They don't usually fight with one another, but whenever they have a small fallout, they make up pretty quickly. However, Ash and Brock almost lost their friendship when one of Team Rocket's tricks got out of hand but they mended it when the truth became clear. In addition, Ash and Brock sometimes practice battles together. They officially parted ways when their travels in Sinnoh ended, when Brock decided to become a Pokémon Doctor and Ash continued traveling to fulfill his ambitions. After going their separate ways, Ash and Brock maintained their lasting friendships with one another, as shown when he briefly traveled to the Alola region with Misty. ====Tracey==== [[File:Ash & Tracey.png|thumb|Ash and Tracey.]] Ash and Tracey are pretty close friends and have a great respect for each other, as they traveled together through the Orange Islands. They hardly disagree with each other, but when they do, they make up pretty quickly. The two boys eventually parted ways when Tracey became Professor Oak's assistant, though they still maintain a strong friendship. While Ash continued traveling, the boys sometimes see each other when the latter comes back home to Pallet Town. ====May==== [[File:Ash & May.png|thumb|left|Ash and May.]] May is one of Ash's best friends. They traveled through Hoenn and the Battle Frontier together, helping each other along the way. When May chose to become a Pokémon Coordinator, Ash gave her his full support and helped her in any way he could. Ash became a mentor to May and guided her in the ways of a Pokémon Trainer. In fact, they trained together for Ash's battles and for May's contests. Sometimes, Ash and May have their fights, but they always make up in the end. Although they went their separate ways to continue making their dreams come true, their friendship remained intact, shown when they cross paths again in Sinnoh. {{Clear}} ====Max==== [[File:Ash & Max.png|thumb|Ash and Max.]] Ash and Max are best friends. They share a common love for Pokémon and liked to do their own things while May and Brock went shopping in towns or cities throughout Hoenn and the Battle Frontier. Ash acts like a big brother figure towards Max and protects him. Also, Ash didn't hardly had any fights with Max. When Max was going to return to Hoenn while May traveled through Johto, Ash promised him that when he became a Pokémon Trainer, they would have a battle together. Although, Ash knows his friendship with Max will remind till the end. ====Dawn==== [[File:Ash and Dawn.png|thumb|left|Ash and Dawn.]] Ash shares an unbreakable friendship with Dawn. As a sign of their bond, they often high-five each other whenever something good happens for them. Ash and Dawn hardly butt heads as they do sometimes fight a little, although they easily make up. They also stand up for each other and have each other's backs. Similarly to what he did for May, Ash mentored Dawn in the ways of a Pokémon Trainer and helped her as a Pokémon Coordinator. [[File:Ash & Dawn high-fiving.png|thumb|Ash and Dawn high-fiving.]] Ash also supported Dawn and cheered her on during her Contest, while she cheered him on during his Gym Battles, and she sometimes dressed up in a cheerleader outfit for him. Like with Brock, Ash and Dawn also practiced battles to help their skill levels. After they went their separate ways, Ash and Dawn remained best friends, shown when they saw each other again in Unova. {{Clear}} ====Iris==== [[File:Ash and Iris.png|thumb|left|Ash and Iris.]] Ash and Iris are very good friends. They respect each others' skills and the love they have for Pokémon. Much like his relationship with Misty, however, Ash and Iris sometimes get into fights. Their fights are also a little more severe when compared to Ash's arguments with Misty as one of them almost caused them to lose their friendship when they both overreacted towards each other. Additionally, despite their friendship, Ash and Iris do tease each other from time to time, although he also gets annoyed when she calls him a kid. Much like Brock and Dawn, Ash and Iris trained for battles together on their journey. After arriving in Kanto, Ash and Iris went their separate ways to fulfill their dreams. However, they both knew they'd always be friends no matter where they went. ====Cilan==== [[File:Ash & Cilan.png|thumb|Ash and Cilan.]] Ash and Cilan are close friends. Also, Ash greatly respects Cilan as a Pokémon Connoisseur and as a Gym Leader. Much like his relationship with Brock, Ash enjoys Cilan's cooking and doesn't usually fight with him but when they do, they make up right away. In addition, Ash would be helped by Cilan as he helps him see through his mistakes. Before going their separate ways, Ash was told by Cilan how much he learned from him. Pleased, Ash said he felt the same way about him. Although, Ash and Cilan friendship will remain no matter where their journeys take them. ====Clemont==== [[File:Ash & Clemont.png|thumb|left|Ash and Clemont.]] Clemont is one of Ash's best friends. Like with Iris, they practiced battles with one another during their journey. While Ash respects Clemont as a Gym Leader, he also admires his inventions and cooking. Unlike some of his other friends, Ash and Clemont rarely fought. On the other side, Ash would be looked out by Clemont, as he would sometimes warn him about impending danger. After their journey concluded together, Ash went back home to resume his journey while Clemont stayed to run his gym with Bonnie right beside him. However, Ash and Clemont knew that they'll always be friends no matter where they are. ====Bonnie==== [[File:Ash and Bonnie.png|thumb|Ash and Bonnie.]] Ash and Bonnie are very good friends. They both have great love for Pokémon, and Ash cares for Bonnie like a little sister. Like with Max, Ash is protective of Bonnie and would do anything to keep her safe from danger.

In fact, their relationship is almost like father and son, since they spent a lot of time together outside of the Pokémon School and enjoy each others' company. They even have a student/mentor relationship with each other that works two ways, since Kukui is his teacher in the school and Ash became a mentor to him when he unexpectedly ended up going back in time to when he was five years old. In the Poké Problem segment called ''A Timeless Encounter'', Professor Burnet commented on how Ash and Kukui were like brothers when they ate their food. [[File:The Double Royals.png|thumb|left|Ash, as Ash Royal, and Professor Kukui, as the Masked Royal.]] Also, Ash admires Kukui's alter ego, the Masked Royal, and gets fired up when watching his matches on TV with his Pokémon and Professor Burnet since they are also huge fans of his.

When fighting as the Double Royals, their battling coordination and teamwork were so good that James said, "Those two are so in sync, you'll never know it's their first time."

After finding out his identity, Ash was shocked that the Masked Royal and Professor Kukui were the same person at first. However, Ash became excited about it since he didn't care about how long Professor Kukui kept his secret. Ash and Kukui eventually had to part ways when he decided to return to Kanto, but their bond remained intact. Also, like with Professor Oak, Ash trusts Professor Kukui to look after his Pokémon alongside his wife. ====Professor Burnet==== [[File:Ash & Professor Burnet.png|thumb|Ash and Professor Burnet.]] Ever since Professor Burnet married Kukui and moved in with Ash, she has acted as a mother figure to the boy. They are both huge fans of the Masked Royal, although they were both clueless at first that it was actually Professor Kukui along with Ash's classmates.

A lot of people see that they're perfect partners. Despite their friendship, Ash does butt heads with Pikachu at times but they don't stay that way for long. Whenever Pikachu fell victim to someone's control, Ash would always help him and give him enough encouragement to break free from it, although he was successful a couple of times but there have been times the control would be too strong for him to break free from but he never gives up on getting through to his best friend no matter how tough the hold was on him. Also, when the other way around occurs, Ash was given the strength to break free from someone's control when he would hear Pikachu's voice calling out to him, which shows how strong their friendship for one another is. ====Rotom==== [[File:Ash & Rotom.png|thumb|left|Ash and Rotom.]] Rotom is not only a companion to Ash who gives information about Pokémon and advice during his time in Alola but is also his very good friend.
