As a Trainer, Ash has {{pkmn2|caught}} and [[Friendship|befriended]] a sizable number of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} throughout the anime. His philosophy on {{pkmn|training}} is that Pokémon are individuals and that a combination of trust, friendship, and hard work are needed to overcome adversity. Several of Ash's Pokémon were caught because they allowed him to after he befriended them. He seems to {{pkmn|battle}} best with Pokémon that are similar to Pikachu: ones that are [[Appendix:Metagame terminology#Sweeper|speedy and maneuverable, yet able to perform high-powered attacks]]; however, he is willing to work with any Pokémon that comes into his care.
Ash currently has ownership of 76 Pokémon, including all 30 of his Tauros. Including pre-evolved forms, traded, released, and [[Gift Pokémon|given away]] Pokémon (and not including the additional Tauros), in total, Ash has currently officially owned a total of 95 different Pokémon species.
