===Character===
[[File:Ash and Delia.png|thumb|left|250px|Ash and his mother]]
Ash is an only child who lived with his mother, {{Delia}}, until he left for his [[Pokémon journey]] at the age of ten. His main goal in life, as described in [[EP001|the first episode]], is to be the world's greatest [[Pokémon Master]]. One particular characteristic about Ash that has not changed throughout the series, aside from his determination and his passion for raising and training Pokémon, is that he is incredibly selfless. He will often go to extraordinary lengths to earn a Pokémon's trust and respect and to better understand a Pokémon that he sees as troubled. He is also very fair-minded and trusting, a true testament to his good-natured character.
 
Ash is shown to havehas a strong sense of justice, especially when it comes to Pokémon. If a Pokémon is in trouble, he will make every effort to help them, even if he has no prior connection to them. If they are the cause of trouble, he will stop them, and then try to understand them, with almost all such occasions being a case of the Pokémon, or their Trainers or friends, having a problem which can't be resolved normally. In those cases, he will selflessly volunteer to help them. Should the problem be caused by [[human]]s, such as {{TRT}}, {{pkmn|poacher|Pokémon thieves, hunters, or poachers}}, Ash will resolve to do anything in his power to stop them.
 
Despite this, and previous dealings with villainous teams, Ash has retained a remarkably optimistic and naive outlook, a trait {{ashfr|his companions}} seem to share. He is quick to praise and has an unshakable trust in both his Pokémon and his friends. Also, Ash is determined to see the best in everybody unless he has a very good reason not to. An example would be Team Rocket's frequent 'sudden appearances' that coincide with their needs at that time, and Ash never questioning it until it is too late. Another example would be how he always praises {{an|Clemont}} for [[Clemontic Gear|his inventions]], no matter their high failure rate, and the near-inevitable explosion, or {{an|Cilan}} for his various hobbies. Furthermore, even though almost all of his friends have large dreams, Ash fully supports them and has never doubted their ability to accomplish them, possibly due to his own highly ambitious goal. He also encourages Pokémon to do the best they can, even if they aren't his own and has even helped train [[wild Pokémon]].
 
[[File:Ash catches a Pokémon SM.png|thumb|left|250px|Ash after catching a Pokémon]]
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. 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.

She battled Goodra but lost after Goodra learned {{m|Ice Beam}}. She then cooperated with Team Rocket to kidnap Pikachu, Dedenne and a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Wooper}}, believing the lie that Team Rocket would help heal Floette. However, after Team Rocket betrayed Florges and stole all the water from the wetlands, along with the three kidnapped Pokémon, Florges and her army switched allegiances and worked with Ash and Goodra to set them free. She then worked with Goodra to restore the wetland, using {{m|Grassy Terrain}} in conjunction with Goodra's {{m|Rain Dance}} to restore all of the water and vegetation.}}

Once the statue was placed on top of it, Stakataka became angry and started rampaging around until Ash removed the statue. Stakataka then let itself be caught by Ash upon learning that he was doing it only to make sure it would get back home. Later, back at the Pokémon School, Stakataka was safely returned to its home dimension through an Ultra Wormhole.}}

===Voice actors===
===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 {{game|Yellow}}, some elements are based on the anime. Red, the player character, starts with a {{TP|Red|Pikachu|Pikachu (game)}}, which is based on [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Red later receives the trio of Kanto [[starter Pokémon]] in similar circumstances as Ash: {{p|Bulbasaur}} from a girl based on [[Melanie]], {{p|Charmander}} from a boy based on [[Damian]], and {{p|Squirtle}} from an [[Officer Jenny]].
 
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}}.
