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

I love this charizard,charizard x,y love you so much

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!

Why charizard

3 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 should be #1 he never left ash to join another group of pokemon

4 Infernape Infernape

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

All should vote for this Pokemon because charizard first never listen to ash

5 Sceptile Sceptile

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

It beat darkrai, spencers claydol, Norman's slackoth and winona's altaria when it was just a GROVYLE. And who could forget...
... You don't know yet? I don't CARE yOU SHOULD

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.

Only Pokemon with SIX moves in fact it’s never lost a 1v1 it always took out a poke or two.

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.

I wish Ash used him more... - Blizzard

8 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

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
9 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 is a very good pokemon

V 7 Comments
10 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.

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

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

The Contenders

11 Staraptor Staraptor

Without a doubt ash's best bird Pokemon

Just my favorite of ash's pokemon

A good one

Talonflame is Ash's Best Bird Pokemon, I have some evidence of it, First of all the 3 can both learn the move Brave Bird because Talonflame has better stats plus Talonflame has better moves plus Staraptor almost lost to Paul's Honchkrow. Talonflame lost to a Moltres, a Legendary Bird, But almost won to it

12 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

13 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

14 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.

15 Tauros Tauros

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

16 Gliscor Gliscor

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

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.

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.

Goodra is just to good and he proved that in the kalos league

18 Hawlucha Hawlucha

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

19 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

Love the affection especially when it was a Chikorita.

20 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

21 Kingler Kingler

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

Ash's Kingler is underrated monster. - Brachiozaur

22 Muk Muk

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

23 Gible Gible

Draco meteor OP

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

24 Noivern Noivern

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

Great Pokémon, bad writers. This guy needed more screen time. - Blizzard

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

It should be 10th

26 Togepi Togepi Togepi (トゲピー, Togepy) is an 2nd generation Pokemon from the franchise of the same name created by Satoshi Tajiri, Togepi is an cute Fairy type Pokemon (originally Normal type prior to Generation VI) that can use an special move called Metronome which can cause different effects, despite common more.

Togepi is not ash's Pokemon. It is with Misty.

Not by Ash - PokemonGOSucks

27 Buizel Buizel

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...

28 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

29 Talonflame Talonflame

Sleek, cool body. Powerful fire attacks.

Talonflame is totally unbeatable

Talonflame because he beat Pyschic and Fairy gyms

30 Glalie Glalie

Glalie did really well in the Johto League

Look at the wiki

31 Donphan Donphan

Donphan is so awesoma!

32 Leavanny Leavanny

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


33 Lycanroc (Dusk Form)
34 Quilava Quilava

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

36 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! ^_^

37 Frogadier Frogadier

The last episode I wached his frokie envolved

38 Bayleef Bayleef

I love her.

...yay... - Sambazing

39 Totodile Totodile

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!

40 Noibat

Noibat is so cute and good at battling with ash

He is hairy but cute

Uhhh... it lost to a Riolu. shouldn't it be further down on the list than #44? - Blizzard


45 Pignite Pignite
46 Fletchinder


47 Froakie Froakie

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!

48 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

49 Solgaleo

I don't even know what is it
