Ash Ketchum

24 bytes removed, 7 April
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 [[Red'sa Pikachu{{TP|Red|a Pikachu]]}}, which is based on [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Red later receives the trio of Kanto [[Starterstarter Pokémon|starters]] in similar circumstances as Ash: Red receives {{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}}.
