Top Ten Pokemon Trained by Ash

This is a list discussing the Pokémon caught by Ash during his journey and the best of them! Please vote your favourite-giving a reason would make my day! Also, if your favourite pokemon is not included in the list, then feel free to add them!

The Top Ten

1 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. 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.

Sorry Greninja, but I hadn't seen you take on an Entei, defeat an Articuno, and always come up with great strategies.

If this thing can one-shot a Golem with Dragon Rage, a move that always does 40 damage, it is definitely deserving of the #1 spot on this list. It just broke the move Dragon Rage. - Blizzard

Oh my God this is by so far the most powerful pokemon owned by Ash

He is the best pokemon own by ash

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.

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

Greninja is definitely Ash's strongest Pokemon and those two have a remarkable strong bond even when they far away from each other. Their bond is one of the best kinda of like Pikachu, those two should together from now on due to them knowing each other so well! You couldn't asked for a better team then Ash and Greninja ; I love them both!

This Pokemon is so good that it has an ability that's not even out yet! Greninja has mega evolution stats and isn't overrated like Charizard plus Charizard never listened and is a pretty crappy Pokemon. You say Charizard beat legendary Pokemon so did Sceptile and Pikachu against Tobias. And that was Darkrai and Latios. Greninja is great too because it can turn into Ash Greninja and is super powerful!

More like the worst

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

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.

He is really REALLY damn good. Especially after his battle with Paul. He DESTROYED Paul's lineup after he stopped doing work with his scorpion guy even after taking so much damage it was just an enormously good performance this is it the only sole reason why he's up here

He was poisoned and he defeated Ninjask, Aggron and Electivire. Also, Infernape gives Ash some victories in gyms

It has to be rank 1 the reason is he never give up

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.

Defeated Tyranitar and Metagross. Both are very powerful pokemon. More than that he defeated legendary pokemon. I think this guy deserves 2

I would like to see that happen in the real game. Pikachu would faint by just trying to attack. - Yuanlong

Pikachu has been here from the start, it must be level 100 by now, but it does seem his level resets after each region... no-one knows, it's debatable but Pikachu makes most sense.

He killed Latios, Regice and Mega Lucario. Also, he defeated Drake's Dragonite and Trip's Serperior

Pikachu is ash strongest pokemon yet 4 th

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

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

I voted sceptile because he was my first starter and defeated the darkrai

I think sceptile should be behind infernape because it lost more battles and had lower stats

Killer King

V 43 Comments
6 Snorlax Snorlax

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

People, I love Ash's Snorlax as much as the next guy, is it above Pikachu?

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

He is great

7 Heracross Heracross

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

Heracross is a good pokemon, but its sexually assaulted Bulbasaur. Not cool.

I also like Heracross for some reason, it has cool moves and is very good in battle.

It is a beetle like Pokemon

8 Krookodile

Why did ash not use it in his battle with Cameron

It wears glasses can't get more cooler than that

Its power is outstanding and its glasses makes it pretty good

It should number 1. Kick ass

9 Staraptor Staraptor Staraptor, known in Japan as Mukuhawk, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Without a doubt ash's best bird Pokemon

Just my favorite of ash's pokemon

It's better than a charizard

AWESOME staraptors are OP

10 Swellow Swellow

He's great with his extreme stamina and he even has good health

Only swellow and pikachu can go super saiyan - flash101

Swellow pooped in ash's mouth. I bet he didn't like that

eh yeah no

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

12 Arceus Arceus

Why the heck is the creator of the pokemon world here... This is only Ash's pokemon...

That is not ash pokemon. LOL

It should be on the first.

13 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

14 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

15 Bayleaf

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

Chikorita wasn't even that powerful bay leaf for the reason that powerful either

Bayleaf is cute

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

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

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.

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!

This Bulbasaur found a way to learn Dig. If it defies the game logic, it is worthy of a spot on this list.

Also, it escaped death when almost crushed by a boulder by using Dig. Lucky it knew how to defy game logic. - Blizzard

17 Lapras Lapras

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

Free rides! - PokemonGOSucks

18 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.

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.

This is a really good Pokémon. I would recommend it on your Pokémon team

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

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

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

20 Gible Gible

Draco meteor OP

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

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

Really strong ash best flying type

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.

Beat salamence ZAPDOS

22 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 should be under 10...

23 Talonflame Talonflame

Sleek, cool body. Powerful fire attacks.

Talonflame is totally unbeatable

Talonflame because he beat Pyschic and Fairy gyms

24 Torterra Torterra

Ash's Torterra sucks.

Come on torterra should be on top 10

It's a moving continent! And it's OP

I wish it was better, since I love Torterra as a Pokémon species. - Blizzard

25 Glalie Glalie

Glalie did really well in the Johto League

Look at the wiki

26 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

It should be 10th

27 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

28 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.

29 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

30 Lycanroc (Dusk Form)

Lycanroc berserk 24/7

I love lyconroc and all it's forms

31 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!

32 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! ^_^

33 Leavanny Leavanny

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


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 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

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

39 Totodile Totodile Totodile, known in Japan as Waninoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

TOTODILE? Who ever heard of a strong totodile?


Jumpiest pokemon ever and I love totodile because it's my favorite from the johto starters and how it and corphish just swamped him in sinnoh but I'm also mad about because he didn't use them in sinnoh! WHY!

Noibat is so cute and good at battling with ash

He is hairy but cute

46 Fletchinder


47 Poipole Poipole

Its an epic pokemon!

48 Froakie Froakie Froakie, known in Japan as Keromatsu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is like the Treecko of Gen 6 except with a different personality. Come on, you have to admit it is cool!

Did Ash seriously get all these Pokemon? Lol

Poor last place froakie

Ash's Froakie has a sense of humor and is sometimrs even stubborn! But its still awesome and not to mention adorbs!

49 Exeggcute Exeggcute

Do I really even have to say why?!?! He single handedly took down those 4 or 5 gyms by himself without even having to even heal. He even cracked a smile whilst doing so.

Not by Ash - PokemonGOSucks
