Ash's first hat, worn during the [[original series]], is easily the most well-known: an official [[Pokémon League]] Expo hat that was red and white with a green, stylized "L" on the front, which Ash claimed to have "sent in about a million postcards" in order to obtain. {{an|Misty}} seems to have tried to win it as well, as she stated she sent in one postcard. Ash wore this hat during his journey through [[Kanto]], the [[Orange Archipelago]], and [[Johto]], and was very attached to it, becoming enraged when {{AP|a Mankey|Primeape}} stole it and played keep-away with it in ''[[EP025|Primeape Goes Bananas]]''. The design may be loosely based on {{ga|Red}}'s Generation I hat, and in early concept sketches for the anime, Ash's hat matched Red's exactly.
Commonly, Ash would turn the cap backwards, particularly when he was concentrating heavily, such as when he would face a {{pkmn|Trainer}} or capture a Pokémon. This was seen most often early in his journey in Kanto, gradually becoming less frequent until his journey in Johto ended, by which time he hardly ever turned his cap. ThatThe sequence was actually a common animation practice used constantlyfrequently to cut costs back inat the daytime.
