==In the games==
===In the core series===
Ash Ketchum is based on {{ga|Red}}, his counterpart from the games. Additionally, "Ash" is one of the suggested names for Red in the games {{game|Red and Blue|s|Pokémon Red}}, {{v2|Yellow}}, [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|FireRed, and LeafGreen]], for the rival character {{ga|Blue}} in the games {{game|Red and Blue|s|Pokémon Blue}} (international) and LeafGreen, and for {{ga|Ethan}} in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}.
 
In the {{FB|Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon|Special Demo Version}} of {{g|Sun and Moon}}, Ash sends an unsigned letter and his {{AP|Greninja}} (with "Ash" being listed as Greninja's [[Original Trainer]]) to {{ga|Elio}}, the player character. Like in the anime, Ash's Greninja can transform into [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Greninja|Ash-Greninja]] by using its unique [[Ability]], {{a|Battle Bond}}.
 
====In {{pkmn|event}}s====
Several [[event Pokémon]] based on Ash's Pokémon have been made over the course of the franchise. In addition to the aforementioned Greninja, a special form of {{p|Pikachu}} [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Pikachu in a cap|wearing Ash's different hats]] up to the {{series|Sun & Moon}} were made available in {{g|Sun and Moon}}. In {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}, an addiitional Pikachu wearing [[Ash's hat]] from ''[[M20|I Choose You!]]'' also appeared.
