Ash Ketchum

XY series is long over. Changed the tense in the sentence.
Ash is very attached to his Pokémon, and prefers to fight and train with them personally. Furthermore, he cares for their opinion, even giving them the option of whether they should [[Evolution|evolve]] or not. As such, the majority of his Pokémon also share Ash's stubborn and reckless nature, persistently attempting to rise and continue the battle, even after receiving great amount of damage and being at the end of their rope. However, if it is by their own wish, or if he believes it is best for them, Ash will (if sometimes reluctantly) [[trade]] or [[Released Pokémon|release]] them, and in some cases, leave them with experienced individuals so that they could get stronger.
 
Though Ash normally catches five or more Pokémon per [[region]] (not including when he traveled through the [[Orange Archipelago]] and challenged the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}} in his second tour of [[Kanto]]), he rarely ever switches the Pokémon in his current [[party]] with those in [[Pokémon Storage System|storage]] at {{an|Professor Oak}}'s {{TP|Professor Oak|Laboratory}}. He usually only did so when he participated against powerful opponents (such as Trainers in the [[Pokémon League Conference]]s, and [[Frontier Brain]]s), or when attending certain events that requires a specific Pokémon (like {{AP|Tauros}} at the [[Pokémon Swap Meet]] or {{AP|Snorlax}} at the [[Sumo Conference]]). However, during the {{series|Best Wishes}}, Ash actively cycled through the nine Pokémon he managed to catch in [[Unova]], although these Pokémon, when not in his party, were instead kept in storage at [[Professor Juniper]]'s lab in [[Nuvema Town]]. Near the end of his journey in Unova, Professor Juniper transferred all of Ash's Pokémon to Professor Oak's lab. Ash hasdid not yet useduse this system of training in the [[XY series|following]] series.
 
Ash currently has ownership of 70 Pokémon, including all 30 of his Tauros. Including pre-evolutions, traded, released and [[Gift Pokémon|given away]] Pokémon (and not including the additional Tauros), in total, Ash has currently officially owned a total of 84 different Pokémon species.
