Ash Ketchum

8 bytes removed, 15 September
During their journey, Ash caught a lost and traumatized {{p|Goomy}}, which he raised into a {{p|Sliggoo}}, and later, a powerful {{AP|Goodra}}. After earning his fourth Gym Badge, Ash eventually faced Clemont in their promised Gym Battle, and won with Goodra's help, gaining his fifth Badge. Later, Ash and friends come across Goodra's [[Kalos Route 14|old home]], where they discovered it was taken over by a {{an|Florges}} and her companions. After saving Goodra's swamp from Team Rocket while simultaneously solving the issue concerning Florges, Ash left Goodra in the wetlands so it could act as the protector of its swamp and the Pokémon living in it. Sometime afterwards, when Ash reached [[Laverre City]] to challenge the [[Laverre Gym|Gym]], he made a new rival in [[Sawyer]], a novice trainer hailing from Hoenn. Along the way, Ash would also support Serena in her quest to become Kalos Queen, and gave her some helpful advice when she eventually lost, telling her that losing is simply another step towards victory.
Later in their journeys, Ash and friends reached [[Anistar City]] and, together with Professor Sycamore, they met the Psychic Gym Leader, [[Olympia]]. She revealed his Frogadier's past as a Froakie from before meeting Ash and a glimpse of Frogadier's, his friend's, Sycamore's, Team Rocket's, and his own fate, indicating that they would all play a vital role in Kalos's future. Ash challenged her to a [[Double Battle]], which he won using Frogadier and {{AP|Talonflame}}.
Shortly after, the group came across a mysterious Pokémon, dubbed [[Squishy]] by Bonnie, who was being pursued relentlessly by the [[Villainous teams|villainous organization]], [[Team Flare]], prompting the group to put it under their own protective custody. Some time afterwards, Ash and his friends got involved in a conflict in Sanpei's [[Ninja Village|home town]], which led to Frogadier evolving into Greninja, as well as achieving [[Bond Phenomenon]] for the first time. During another confrontation with Team Flare in [[Terminus Cave]], Ash learned Bond Phenomenon came at a cost, as he was able to share Greninja's senses, but also share its pain.
