Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

This guy is like some disaster maker. The only thing is that he got hurt by a move that should not hurt him

CHARIZARD! Is the strongest pokemon of ASH

Charzard is very sleepy.

Charizard is just plain AWESOME!

2 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

Charizard does not care about ash

Greninja is ashes strongest Pokemon so far and and the only one with a special form equal to mega evolution

He cool

This isn't even a hard decision to make, to be honest he literally saved kalos, and to me at the end of ep 2, I don't feel like ash chose him. More like he chose ash.

3 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is ashs best Pokemon because they mastered its blaze ability and perfect attacks

He a monkey man and he has fire imagine the insurance, do pokemon have life insurance?

Infernape is Top 1 Pokemon for ash ketchum

What hasn't been said? It took massive damage but was able to defeat Aggron, Ninjask, and Electivire almost all on its own in the Sinnoh League. Also for gym battles he went against Volkner and took out Jolteon and Luxray. Again, on its own. Blaze ability makes it arguably most powerful of Ash's Pokemon. Oh and on top of that, Infernape only ever lost ONCE to Flints Infernape, witch is understandable because he's an elite four member. He never lost once he evolved at any other time. Do I even need to say more? Overall, Infernape is My favorite Pokemon, and definitely Ash's best.

4 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu is awesome, case closed.

Pikachu is better then mewtwo

5 Sceptile Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Greninja never even defeated a legendary, pikachu tied with a legendary infernape neither so sceptile has to be second after charizard

Yeah it defeated darkrai in sinnoh league in just one attack I think it deserves no.2

Killer King

It killed a Darkrai in one hit with leaf blade. What else do I need to say?

6 Snorlax Snorlax

He is great

Snorlax>All Other Pokemon

He defeated Steelix and two fighting-type Pokemon, Snorlax is a normal-type Pokemon and with ice punch he defeated a fighting-type

Well, I haven't watched pokemon in a long time, but I know Snorlax is definitely one of my favourite.

7 Heracross Heracross

Ash relies heavily on heracross

It is a beetle like Pokemon

I wish Ash used him more... - Blizzard

I like Heracross for some reason, people underestimate it but it is really strong and knows a lot of powerful moves.

8 Krookodile Krookodile

It should number 1. Kick ass

It's personality,it's moveset,it's win percentage and it's power just awesome.In my opinion one of the best pokemon not only of ash's but also world's best

Why did ash not use it in his battle with Cameron

Its power is outstanding and its glasses makes it pretty good

The Contenders

11 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

For some reason electric attacks never bothered it in the Orange Islands against that Starmie and Persian

It could take on an electric type single handed and then defeated a fire type just after that.

The funniest and coolest Pokemon you know it

Squirtle number 1

V 7 Comments
12 Gliscor Gliscor Gliscor, known in Japan as Glion, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Seriously, he's not on the list at all
Ash's funniest and one of his strongest Pokemon ever...

It's funny just looking at him and hearing his English-dub anime voice - PokemonGOSucks

I highly relate to this Gliscor, so I have to love him. - SocialMediaStinks

13 Hawlucha Hawlucha Hawlucha, known in Japan as Luchabull, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's a plane no it's a bird no it's Hawlucha

Is a amazing pokemon and us can't forget him

Super strong pokemon

It's powerful and has this weird heat thingi which is epicly awesomely cooly cool

14 Bayleef Bayleef

Bayleaf is cute

Love the affection especially when it was a Chikorita.

I just accidently voted for her I meant to click the plus sign just to say Bayleef is spelt wrong. - PokemonGOSucks

Loved this thing... always damn loses

15 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Bulbasaur is one of the most strongest and loyal pokemon Ash had. In Indigo league and Johto league, It played important role which helped Ash to win every match.

In the early Johto episodes it did really well, one of Ash's main pokemon after Charizard left.

The only thing that is annoying about Bulbasaur is it is so predictable that is going to choose him first if he pulls out a Pokeball like this haha Bulbasaur I Choose You!

Bulbasaur sucks he isn't even light, because bulb as in bolb

16 Lapras Lapras

Lapras is the 2nd best water type after mega gyarados

How does it beat these lower entries? It never won a single battle! Well, unless tying against Gengar counts. - Blizzard

One of ash's orange island team. Cool and powerful.

Lapras for the win

17 Goodra Goodra Goodra is a fictional creature in the Pokemon franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Goodra is a Dragon type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Sliggoo and the final evolved form of Goomy. Classified as the Dragon Pokemon, Goodra is a very slimy, yet affectionate Pokemon, and likes to hug its trainers, more.

Goodra only at #18 is wrong: it has battled many strong foes and was one of Ash’s best weapons in Kalos

The thing hasn't lost a single battle while with ash. So far, the closest it's come to losing a battle is a tie with a slurpuff, which is a FAIRY type. Immune to one of goodra's best attacks, being dragon pulse. This should easily be top 5 on the list, it has shown to be a war-tank and extremely strong offensively.

It lost to alain's bisharp

Only lost once! Super strong.

18 Kingler Kingler Kingler, known in Japan as Kingler, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

From the very first season and still has one of the highest win ratios. Kingler's a true OG.

Ash's Kingler has a 70% victory ratio.

For someone with a lack of experience, it does fight pretty well. - PokemonGOSucks

Really underrated - a complete boss

19 Gible Gible

Draco meteor OP

Come on, think about it. Ash Gible can eat a Shadiw Punch :D

20 Noivern Noivern Noivern, known in Japan as Onvern, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Noivern didn't really get much time in the spotlight, and that's really upsetting, because Ash's Noibat has come a long way. It beat a Zapdos for crying out loud! ZAPDOS! And Zapdos is easily the strongest out of the legendary birds.

Really strong ash best flying type

Beat salamence ZAPDOS

21 Buizel Buizel Buizel, known in Japan as Buoysel, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Buizel is one of ash's most bad ass pokemon! I love his counter shield and ice aqua jet. It loved to battle and train. I think buizel should be number one

Even if buizel is stubborn it is still strong.

The master of extempore!

Buizel rules.

22 Talonflame Talonflame


Sleek, cool body. Powerful fire attacks.

Talonflame is totally unbeatable

Talonflame because he beat Pyschic and Fairy gyms

23 Torterra Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Ash's Torterra sucks.

24 Glalie Glalie

Glalie did really well in the Johto League

Look at the wiki

25 Pidgeot Pidgeot

This Pokemon should be in the Top Ten does not have to be first but to be on the list because? I'll tell you why Pidgeot ash helped in many battles and lost for 15 years this has not come

Pidgeot was most loyal to ash after Pikachu and has won most of his battles and I'm pretty sure he is his most strongest Pokemon after he evolved in his final stage.

Ash always release Pokemon and he promised to pidgeot that he will return but he never returns

I think Ash should have gotten Pidgeot back, it can mega evolve and was strong.

26 Tauros Tauros Tauros, known in Japan as Kentauros, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Which Tauros is this exactly? The one that battled Drake and Gary, or one of the 29 other Tauros Ash caught? - Blizzard

Ash have so many tauros it can defeat team rocket with a single attack by teamwork

Torotoro its touros the bull

27 Muk Muk Muk, known in Japan as Betbeton, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He can beat a powerful bellsprout. I'm surprised ash didn't use him more.

28 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Ok, mewtwo isn't pokemon was trained by ash, but I liked himself. - mewtwo1

This thing rekt the Pokemon league

Ash never caught Mewtwo plus Mewtwo sucks he is a clone of mew. What a bitch of a copy cater

29 Lycanroc (Dusk Form)

Lycanroc berserk 24/7

I love lyconroc and all it's forms

30 Donphan Donphan

Donphan is so strong and good in battle is tough and guess what it resist to a aggron that use water pulls

Donphan is so awesoma!

31 Butterfree Butterfree

I'm pretty sure he's dead by now. (Yes it's a he, it's been confirmed and butterflies don't live that long). - PokemonGOSucks

Butterfree was obviously one of ash's favorite pokemon because it was his 1st pokemon and it's good bye made me want to cryy

Man,Ash's Butterfree was awesome.He took down koffing and ekans by himself while he was just a little catterpie! Hope he will return.

I'm surprised no one remembers Butterfree. Let's keep it that way! ^_^

32 Leavanny Leavanny

It's the only Bug/Grass type Pokemon to handle a Poison Type.


33 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. more.

Weakest Pokemon to me

Legendary pokemon. never actually belonged to ash though

Solgaleo is a dam legendary!

I don't even know what is it

34 Quilava Quilava Quilava, known in Japan as Magmarashi, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I just love fire types and typhlosion's my favorite but ash's Quilava is so awesome than it!

The best johto pokemon

He's a better pokemon than Chikorita. Even Cyndaquil could easily beat Bayleaf..

The fire type Quilava is an awesome starter for Ash in the Johto region. Personally, Quilava is my favorite Pokémon of all time. Quilava will dominate Bayleaf, especially in the type advantage.

35 Primeape Primeape

Primeape has a 100% win ratio in its battles for Ash. It beat Hitmonlee, meaning it won its only battle, giving it a 100% win ratio. Ash got robbed of a great Pokémon. - Blizzard

Primeape saved ash's ass a few times

It's in training (with some other trainer) - PokemonGOSucks

Primeape is a good poke though and he's cool like Krookodile
