* Ash has caught 50 <!--Count good as of DP118: the evolution of Staravia into Staraptor-->different kinds of Pokémon, including evolutions and counting Larvitar, Seaking, Beedrill, Haunter, and Raticate, even though Larvitar and Haunter were not officially his, Beedrill was given away nearly immediately, and Seaking was released as part of contest rules. The original tagline for the dub was "[[Gotta Catch 'em All!]]", but Ash has only caught 10.14% of the current number of Pokémon. This line was eventually dropped in 2003, when he only had 8.03% of the then total of 386.
* Ash has caught or received 64 different individual Pokémon, 30 of which are his Tauros.
*Ash is apparently an reincarnation of himself due to the fact that he died in episode 22.
* Ash's first choice of a starter was Squirtle. Later, it is revealed that Gary was the Pallet Town Trainer who chose Squirtle. Ash's second choice was Bulbasaur, while his third was Charmander.
* Ash has captured each [[generation]]'s {{type2|Grass}} [[starter Pokémon]]: Bulbasaur, Chikorita, Treecko, and Turtwig.
