Ash Ketchum, el protagonista del anime Pokémon , ha capturado muchos Pokémon diferentes durante sus viajes. Ha capturado un Pokémon en cada región, con un total de 5 Pokémon en este momento. También mantiene muchos Pokémon con Profesores Pokémon y puede convocarlos cuando quiera. También liberó, intercambió y regaló varios Pokémon y dejó a algunos amigos para entrenar en diferentes lugares.
Ash Ketchum posee un total de 77 Pokémon, incluidos sus 30 Tauros, lo que significa que ha capturado 46 especies diferentes. Incluyendo formas preevolucionadas, Pokémon intercambiados, liberados y regalados, en total, Ash posee actualmente oficialmente un total de 95 especies de Pokémon diferentes.
Ahora que le hemos dado una breve introducción, analicemos el tema con más detalle.
Nota del editor: este artículo se ha actualizado para reflejar el estado actual del inventario de Pokémon de Ash e incluye todos los Pokémon que actualmente posee, ya sea que viaje con ellos o que estén disponibles para él mediante invocaciones.
Ash Ketchum, conocido en Japón como Satoshi, es el personaje principal y protagonista del anime Pokémon. Vive en Pueblo Paleta con su madre, y el primer día de su aventura duerme hasta tarde y llega tarde al laboratorio del Profesor Oak, por lo que no recibe su Pokémon inicial.
Al ver lo desesperado que estaba, Oak le ofreció un Pikachu salvaje e indómito que tenía en su laboratorio, y Ash aceptó con gusto. Aunque a Pikachu no le agradaba Ash al principio y lo lastimó intencionalmente, después de que Ash arriesgó su propia vida para salvar a Pikachu, se convirtieron en mejores amigos. Comenzaron juntos su viaje por las diferentes regiones del mundo de Pokémon.
Aunque aparentemente no ha envejecido ni un día desde su primer día, Ash ha cambiado mucho mientras viajaba con Pikachu y sus otros amigos; sus compañeros cambiaron con el paso de las estaciones. Atrapó muchos Pokémon diferentes, libró muchas batallas duras, ayudó a salvar el mundo en varias ocasiones y apareció en todos los episodios del anime y en todas las películas de anime relacionadas.
Es un chico valiente, sincero, a veces crédulo y alegre. Conoce el significado de la verdadera amistad y está dispuesto a sacrificarse por el bienestar de sus amigos y sus Pokémon. Lo ha demostrado en varias ocasiones a medida que se desarrollaba el anime, y no hay duda de que nuestra interpretación del personaje es correcta.
¿Cuántos Pokémon tiene Ash?
A lo largo de sus viajes por el mundo Pokémon, Ash ha capturado una gran cantidad de Pokémon diferentes. Considera a sus Pokémon como individuos, como seres, y no sólo como “herramientas” o “armas”. Su filosofía se basa en una combinación de confianza, amistad y trabajo duro, todo lo cual utiliza para fortalecer los vínculos entre él y sus Pokémon.
De hecho, varios de sus Pokémon fueron capturados porque le permitieron atraparlos después de haberse hecho amigo de ellos o ayudarlos. No es un «snob» cuando se trata de Pokémon, ya que está dispuesto a trabajar con cualquier especie que esté bajo su cuidado y ayudarla a alcanzar su máximo potencial. Tampoco prefiere ningún tipo específico de Pokémon.
Dado que enumerar todos los detalles sobre las 96 especies de Pokémon que Ash capturó durante sus viajes sería demasiado largo, solo indicaremos algunos detalles sobre las más importantes, mientras que se enumerarán las demás.
La lista actual de Pokémon de Ash
Estos son los seis Pokémon que Ash mantiene con él en este momento.
|Pikachu es el primer Pokémon que atrapó Ash y el único que siempre mantuvo en su lista. Era su Pokémon inicial.
|Ash se hizo amigo de su Dragonair mientras estaba en la isla Dragonite, ayudándolo a aprender a volar. Evolucionó en el mismo episodio y luego decidió ir con Ash.
|Liberado por su antiguo entrenador, Gengar persiguió el Laboratorio Cerise hasta que finalmente ayudó a Ash a luchar contra el Equipo Rocket, después de lo cual decidió unirse a él.
|Riolu was a Pokémon Egg passed on from daycare to daycare until it reached a Pokémon Center in Kanto, where it bonded with Ash. After sensing a strong connection, the Riolu finally hatched and joined Ash. It evolved into Lucario while fighting Copperajah.
|This Farfetch’d was a troublemaker in Wyndon before it was defeated by Ash’s Riolu. After being healed in the local Pokémon Center, Farfetch’d accepted Ash’s invitation to join his team.
|Restored by Cara Liss and Gasattsu, Dracovish initially wanted to bite Ash and play with him, proving powerful enough to deflect Pikachu’s attack. At the end of his debut episode, Cara and Gasattsu allowed Ash to keep Dracovish, so he became a member of his team.
Ash is also traveling with a Rotom (Phone version), the second Rotom, after traveling with a Rotom (Pokédex version) earlier in the anime. Ash hasn’t officially caught the Rotoms but has and still does travel with them.
Ash’s Pokémon in laboratories
Ash keeps a total of 40 different species in three different laboratories. Most of his laboratory-kept Pokémon are with Professor Oak in Pallet Town, his birth town, while four are kept with Professors Kuki and Burnet, and one with Professor Cerise. Here is a list of those Pokémon:
With Professor Oak
|Bulbasaur is one of the first Pokémon Ash caught on his journeys. Bulbasaur was protecting a small group of Grass-type Pokémon and agreed to join Ash only if he defeated it, which he eventually did with Pikachu’s help. They had lots of adventures together. It now resides with Oak.
|Ash’s relationship with Charizard is one of the most interesting ones in the anime. Ash saved its life while it was a Charmander, but soon as it evolved, it started disobeying Ash because it found him too weak. Charizard and Ash deepened their bond later on, with Ash leaving Charizard to train in Charicific Valley. It is currently with Oak.
|Ash caught Krabby after fighting it on a beach with a stick. Even though it was small in size, as it evolved into Kingler, it became very powerful and one of Ash’s best teammates. It resides with Professor Oak.
|Muk was caught by Ash while in the process of fixing the power failure caused by it and the Grimer it protected. Due to its smell, he was initially sent to Oak, but it seems that the smell later disappeared. It resides with Oak and is known for its love for humans.
|In one of the famous banned episodes (this one because of the use of a gun), Ash visited the Safari Zone, wanting to catch as many Pokémon as possible. All he ended up with were 30 Tauros, which were all sent to Professor Oak’s laboratory. Ash would later use one of them in his battles.
|Ash and the gang met Snorlax during their visits to the Orange Islands, where it was eating everything it came across. They wanted to take it down to save the vegetation of the surrounding islands, but Snorlax was too strong until Pikachu weakened him with its attack, and Jigglypuff put it to sleep, which is when Ash caught it.
|While Ash and the group were figuring out a way how to stop the dispute between a group of Heracross and a group of Pinsir, one of the Heracross started following Ash around. After settling the dispute, it followed Ash and ultimately allowed Ash to catch it. It was one of Ash’s strongest teammates and currently resides with Oak.
|As a Chikotira, Ash’s Bayleef was very stubborn and caused problems, even after being caught by Ash. It was jealous of Pikachu because it wanted all of Ash’s affection for itself. They later normalized their relationship, and Bayleef became a reliable teammate. It does now reside with Oak.
|Ash initially stumbled upon Cyndaquil while running away from Team Rocket. When the villains attacked them, Cyndaquil destroyed their robot, but as it was about to explode, Ash used a PokéBall to save Cyndaquil from the blast. It had a good relationship with Ash and later evolved into Quilava. It is now with Professor Oak.
|Both Misty and Ash initially targeted totodile; the two of them even fought for ownership of Totodile after it was unclear whose Lure Ball caught it. He was very playful, exceptionally romantic, and liked to bite, chew and eat stuff. He was also very strong, seeing he never evolved. It is now with Oak.
|Noctowl was a very cunning Pokémon that lived in Ilex Forest. It was the first Shiny Pokémon introduced in the anime. It caused problems for Dr. Wiseman, before eventually being defeated by Pikachu and caught by Ash.
|Ash received Donphan as an Egg. When Phanpy hatched, it was a very playful and energetic Pokémon. Ash had some trouble controlling it, but they developed a close relationship, and as Phanpy evolved into Donphan, he became a very powerful and reliable Pokémon. It currently resides with Professor Oak.
|Ash’s first Pokémon caught in the Hoenn region was the fearless leader of a flock of wild Taillow that attacked Ash and the group. Later on, their leader came alone and challenged Pikachu, taking numerous hits before Ash eventually caught it to spare it from further injuries. It soon evolved into Swellow and helped Ash on his journey. He is now with Professor Oak.
|Ash’s Sceptile was caught as a Treecko. Ash helped it in trying to save its home, after which Treecko fought Ash’s Pikachu and eventually got caught. It initially had problems befriending the other Pokémon, but soon remedied that. It took a while to evolve into Grovyle and finally into Sceptile, becoming an important part of Ash’s team. It is known for its cool demeanor and for always carrying a twig in its mouth. It is currently with Professor Oak.
|Ash caught Corphish while it was attacking them on the beach, defeating it using his Treecko; this is why Corphish always considered Treecko to be his rival. It is very brash, likes to charge into things, hit with its claws, and eat others’ food. Although it did not evolve, it became very strong, and Ash often used it. It is now with Professor Oak in Pallet Town.
|This Torkoal was living in the Valley of Steel, where it was constantly bullied by Steel-type Pokémon. When Ash and the group met it, it was bound for a fight with the Steel-type Pokémon’s leader, Steelix. Ash commanded Torkoal to use Overheat, with which he managed to defeat Steelix, earning its respect. It then opted to join Ash and became a valuable member of its team. It is currently with Oak.
|While being a Snorunt, this Pokémon was very mischievous, causing trouble for Ash (stealing his Badges, hat, etc.) before being caught. Even after that, Snorunt remained the prankster of the group. It evolved rather quickly into Glalie and became known for constantly freezing people with its attacks, with its most common target being Ash. He is currently with Oak.
|Ash met Starly by accident – his Aipom bumped into it while searching for Pikachu, after which they fought, and Ash caught it. He helped find Pikachu and soon evolved into Staravia. It took him a while (105 episodes) to evolve into Staraptor. It now resides with Professor Oak.
|Ash met Turtwig a wild Pokémon that broke up fights between other wild Pokémon in his area. Turtwig saved Pikachu from Team Rocket, but also from Ash, thinking they were there to steal it, too. The misunderstanding was soon cleared and Turtwig was caught by Ash. It took him a total of 95 episodes to evolve into Grotle and another 66 to evolve into Torterra, one of Ash’s strongest Pokémon. It currently lives with Oak in Pallet Town.
|Similarly to Charmander, Chimchar was a timid Pokémon owned by a bad trainer, Paul, who did not value him because he wasn’t strong enough. Paul would eventually release Chimchar, after which Ash invited it to join his team, which it happily did. Ash trained hard with it, and after a while, it evolved into Monferno, before eventually evolving into Infernape and becoming one of Ash’s strongest Pokémon. Also, its personality was very similar to Ash’s. He is currently with Oak.
|Buizel was initially caught by Dawn and spent some time with her before becoming Ash’s Pokémon. Namely, Buizel was a feisty Pokémon that liked to fight, so it wasn’t all that compatible with Dawn, who preferred Contests. Since Ash had an Aipom that liked Contests more than fighting, him and Dawn decided to trade their Pokémon, and thus Ash became Buizel’s trainer. He currently resides in Oak’s Laboratory.
|This Gligar was a member of a group led by a wild Gliscor that accidentally landed in the city after a windstorm. After Ash and the gang helped the group, Gligar decided to join Ash on his adventures. It was very childish and cheerful, but it also has the habit of crying when scolded by Ash. It also had a fear of fighting but overcame when it when it needed to save Ash. This is when it also evolved into Gliscor. It became more powerful but kept all the character traits it had as a Gligar. He is now with Oak in Pallet Town.
|When Ash and the gang met Gible, he was an ambitious yet small Pokémon trying to learn the move Draco Meteor. Ash decided to help it, and Gible, ultimately started following Ash around. Gible would eventually master the move thanks to Ash and use it in battle. He is a very cute and childish Pokémon, often clumsy, oblivious, or destructive; he also likes to bite things and latch onto Ash’s head. Still, he is a very strong fighter with a strong spirit, which is why he is a good partner for Ash. He is currently with Professor Oak.
|The female Pidove was the first Pokémon Ash caught in Unova, after defeating her with his Pikachu. She soon evolved into Tranquill, which later evolved into Unfezant while battling Skyla for the Sixth Badge in Unova. She is now with Professor Oak.
|Oshawott was actually one of the Starter Pokémon in Professor Juniper’s Laboratory before joining Ash. When Trip chose Snivy instead of him, Oshawott was disappointed but soon recovered and started following Ash, who thought it was cute, even to the point that it left Juniper’s lab. It finally convinced Ash to take it with him, but Ash had to obtain permission from Professor Juniper, which he eventually did. It is currently with Oak in Pallet Town.
|Tepig was once owned by a trainer named Shamus, who abandoned it after it lost in a fight. When Ash found it, it was hungry and very skinny, but after Ash took care of it, it decided to join his team (Iris also wanted to catch it but didn’t want to go with her). Later on, Tepig encountered Shamus, who pushed it away, stating that he was glad to have gotten rid of it. Ash then challenged Shamus to a Double Battle, during which Tepig evolved into Pignite, winning the battle and finally impressing Shamus. Shamus asked Pignite to rejoin his team, but Pignite just attacked him with Flamethrower and refused. He is currently in Oak’s Laboratory in Pallet Town.
|Ash’s Snivy is a very specific Pokémon. It is theorized that it had a former trainer, whom it left because it deemed his or her unworthy. Ash also had problems catching it, but as he earned its respect, he managed to make Snivy a part of its team. It was very strong and skilled for a base-level Pokémon, which Ash often utilized. It currently resides with Professor Oak in Pallet Town.
|Ash received Scraggy’s Egg as a gift for helping out Karena. The Egg soon hatched, and the newly-hatched Scraggy immediately showed it was headstrong and that it had a strong fighting spirit. Scraggy liked a challenge and viewed every new Pokémon as a potential challenge. He was also very brave and refused to give up. It is currently located in Pallet Town with Professor Oak.
|The wild Sewaddle Ash met was a mischievous Pokémon that attacked Ash several times. After Ash risked his life to save it, it finally allowed him to catch it. Sewaddle soon evolved into Swadloon, finally evolving into Leavanny during a training battle against Iris. As is characteristic of the species, Leavanny liked to sew. It currently resides with Professor Oak in his Laboratory in Pallet Town.
|The Palpitoad Ash met was the rowdy, bossy leader of a group of Tympole and a Stunfisk in a lake that Ash and the group accidentally invaded while looking for an antidote for their poisoned Pokémon. After his cohorts failed in defeating the “invaders,” Palpitoad eventually fought Ash himself and lost, afterward being caught by Ash. He was a very strong and reliable member of his team, currently residing with Professor Oak in Pallet Town.
|As a Roggenrola, this Pokémon was very tough, and it managed to knock out two of Ash’s Pokémon in a fight. After Ash saved it, it grew fonder of the Pokémon Trainer, and when Tepig defeated it in a rematch, it became a part of Ash’s team. It eventually evolved into Boldore during the Driftveil Gym battle against Clay’s Excadrill, despite its serious disadvantage. It currently resides in Professor Oak’s Laboratory.
|The sunglasses-carrying Sandile was the leader of a group of Sandile living near a spa; he caused trouble for the owner but actually wanted to protect its friends from a geyser that he knew would erupt soon. After Ash helped it save its friends, it started following him around, constantly wanting to fight Pikachu. It finally got its deserved fight after Ash helped it retrieve its sunglasses; during the fight, it evolved into Krokorok but still lost to Pikachu. Krokorok returned sometime later for a rematch, but it lost again; depressed, it wanted to leave, but Ash asked it to join his team, which he gladly accepted. He later evolved into Krookodile during a fight with Dragonite. He is now with Oak in his Laboratory.
|The Fletchling that would later become Talonflame was a mischievous Pokémon that Ash caught after having to battle it twice. It was also a very brave and honorable Pokémon, which helped it evolve both into Fletchinder and Talonflame, the latter during a battle with the Legendary Pokémon Moltres. It was one of the strongest and most reliable Pokémon in Ash’s team and is currently residing with Professor Oak.
|Ash and the team met the wrestling Pokémon Hawlucha in a forest, where he was the protector of the wild Pokémon living there. He was the current “Forest Champion,” having defeated the former champion, Machamp, who went into the mountains to train. An Ursaring and a Conkeldurr caused trouble and framed Hawlucha, making Machamp fight it again until Machamp realized the truth and took the two scheming Pokémon away. Hawlucha eventually fought Ash under the condition that – if it lost – it would join Ash’s team. Hawlucha didn’t lose, but it still joined Ash, leaving the forest to Machamp. He was a very loyal and strong Pokémon, one Ash often relied on. He is currently with Professor Oak.
|The Egg that contained Noibat was found by Ash’s Hawlucha, who brought it to the group. Noibat soon hatched from the Egg and quickly imprinted on Ash, becoming very loyal to him. It did not take long for Noibat to evolve into Noivern, becoming a very powerful member of Ash’s team. He is currently staying with Professor Oak in his Laboratory.
With Professors Kukui and Burnet
|Raised in the flock led by Toucannon and Trumbeak, Rowlet helped save Ash’s Pikachu and then decided to join Ash’s team, although Ash was unsure whether it wanted to leave its family. When Ash left the Alolan Islands, Rowlet stayed with Professors Kukui and Burnet.
|The Rockruff that evolved into Lycanroc was initially living with Professor Kukui, although it was never officially his Pokémon. It formed a bond with Ash, whom Kukui encouraged to catch, which he did. When Ash left Alola, he left Lycanrock with Kukui and Burnet.
|The story of Litten is one of the saddest in the whole anime. Litten was a wild Pokémon living with an aging Stoutland, who protected it until it died from old age. After a while, Litten joined Ash’s team and evolved into Incineroar. When Ash left Alola, it was left with professors Kukui and Burnet.
|Meltan appeared with a group of his friends in Alola but was left after accidentally having fallen asleep next to Ash’s Rowlet. Ash soon befriended it and caught it, after which it evolved into Melmetal. It was left with Kukui and Burnet after Ash left Alola.
With Professor Cerise
|Ash caught Mr. Mime early into his journey in the Kanto region. He didn’t use him much initially, leaving him with his mother in Pallet Town. Ha later used him in battle and ultimately left him with Professor Cerise.
Ash also has two Pokémon still in his ownership, but which he doesn’t keep with him or in a laboratory. These Pokémon have been left at specific locations to train but are still owned by Ash. They are:
|Squirtle was among the first Pokémon Ash caught on his journeys. He was a rogue Squirtle and the leader of the Squirtle Squad, a famous Pokémon gang. Today, he can be found with his former gang.
|Primeape first appeared as a wild Mankey that stole Ash’s cap after the latter failed to catch him. He later evolved into Primeape, becoming very aggressive and uncontrollable. Ash finally caught the Primeape, but after a while, left him with Anthony to train and become a fighting champion.
Ash has also owned (not temporarily like it was with the Ultra Beasts) another nine Pokémon, which he has released, given away, or traded away during his journeys. These Pokémon are:
(to be with a group of other Buterfree, including a female Butterffee)
(not far from Pallet Town to protect a flock of Pidgey and Pidgeotto from wild Spearows and Fearows)
(initially traded for Ash’s Butterfree, but Ash soon annulled the trade and got his Butterfree back)
(back to its school and its mother in the Orange Archipelago)
(to Casey, because she loves yellow and black-striped Pokémon)
(to Dawn for her Buizel, because it preferred Contests over fighting)
(to help the Z2 destroy the remnants of the Giant Rock)
(so that it can stay with its friends in its homeland)
(because Ash realised it had to be in its homeworld)
Esto concluye nuestra lista. Le hemos brindado una lista completa de todos los Pokémon que poseyó Ash Ketchum en un momento dado, con detalles interesantes sobre cada uno. Esta lista no incluye Pokémon que Ash tuvo solo temporalmente (como las Ultra Bestias), sin tener la intención de conservarlos permanentemente, así como aquellos Pokémon con los que se hizo amigo y con los que viajó pero que nunca atrapó (Haunter, Larvitar, Solgaleo).
Y eso es todo por hoy. Esperamos que se haya divertido leyendo esto y que le hayamos ayudado a resolver este dilema. ¡Hasta la próxima y no olvides seguirnos!
