Physically, Ash is in very good shape, especially for someone 10 years of age. He has constantly been shown to have a lot of stamina, walking miles upon miles through all kinds of environments, while journeying between towns on his journey. He also has huge endurance, as seen when he took powerful attacks from various Pokémon head-on and then recovering quite quickly. Furthermore, Ash has demonstrated himself to be a bit acrobatic, occasionally being able to keep up with {{an|Iris}}, who virtually grew up swinging and jumping through treetops. Ash has occasionally displayed great reflexes, being able to dodge attacks or catch falling objects out of the blue, and even being able to save himself, or others, in the last second during perilous situations. What's more, Ash has exhibited tremendous will power, as seen when he took attacks for long periods and keeps advancing, which also drives his "never give up" attitude when it comes to Pokémon battles. Also, Ash uses his strong will power to protect the ones he loves and would risk everything for them. Ash would even use it wheneverWhenever he fell victim to someones control or attempted to, butAsh would regains his senses and fights back through his strong force of will upon hearing Pikachu's voice calling out to him. He is also strong, being capable of picking up heavy Pokémon such as Larvitar and Hippopotas.
Ash is also quite dense when it comes to matters of the opposite sex, more specifically in the field of [[Shipping|romance]]. Throughout the series, Ash has only displayed open interest in a [[Giselle|female]] only [[EP009|once]], and nothing came out of it. Though some girls in the series have shown obvious (and subtle) affection towards him, Ash meets it with nearly unfailing obtuseness, which some characters have also noticed. Even when it involves other people's romance, Ash is usually oblivious until someone points it out to him. Also, on a few occasions when it came to a matter of Pokémon love, with a male who's experiencing difficulty in gaining the attention of a female, while his friends will often mainly advise on improving the male's looks or charm, Ash's advice is simply to be stronger. Despite this, however, it is shown on several occasions that Ash does seem to understand the concept of marriage, most notably in ''[[SM055|The Professors' New Adventure]]'', when he got excited by the news of {{an|Professor Kukui}} and [[Professor Burnet]]'s engagement, and subsequently worked with his classmates to organize a big wedding ceremony for them.
