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 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 better than charizard

Cute and powerful. Should be No. 1.

It should be no. 1

Pikachu is awesome, case closed.

2 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.

Do I even have to explain why he's here? He's defeated an Articuno and has proven to be just as strong as a dragonite. That's pretty damn impressive if you ask me

Charizard has to be Ash's strongest Pokemon. He's defeated a legendary Articuno and many other Pokemon who have advantages over him such as Gary's Blastoist! Sure he was a pain in the ass for a long time but at the end ends up being Ash's strongest Pokemon

From the beginning it's the strongest Pokemon. It defeat an articuno!

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

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

Gotta admit, Sinnoh is my favourite region. I grew up with it, and honestly wha'ts not to like about it? Great animation quality, great starters, great rivals (paul is a really complex character, some times I hate him sometimes I don't), great elite four and champion, great travelling companions and great pokemon. Infernape is a lethal and deadly pokemon with dual types, but combined with blaze has to be Ash's strongest pokemon in my opinion :) It can learn powerful moves like Flame Wheel, Fire Blitz, Flamethrower, Mach Punch etc and even beat Paul!

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

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

Hands down coolest pokemon EVER appeared in the anime

He should be number 1

This should be no. 1

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

5 Snorlax Snorlax

He is great

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.

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

6 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.

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

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!

7 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.

He is the best

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

Holy Frick, Ash Greninja is so cool.

Charizard does not care about ash

8 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

9 Bayleef Bayleef

Bayleaf is cute

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

10 Heracross Heracross

It almost beat Darkrai but gible failed to finish if only it was seen more often or mega evolved

Ash relies heavily on heracross

It is a beetle like Pokemon

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


The Contenders

11 Krookodile Krookodile

It should number 1. Kick ass

Why did ash not use it in his battle with Cameron

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

It wears glasses can't get more cooler than that

12 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

13 Pidgeotto

It evolved into a Pidgeot (but had to be released due to the Fearow incident) - PokemonGOSucks

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

It's so cute and it can stand up for itself

TOTODILE? Who ever heard of a strong totodile?

16 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!

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

It's better than a charizard

Without a doubt ash's best bird Pokemon

AWESOME staraptors are OP

Just my favorite of ash's pokemon

18 Swellow Swellow

Resistant to electricity as a taillow

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

Lol nope. Infernape went super saying 3 in the shinnoh league

eh yeah no

19 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

20 Gible Gible

He can draco meteor any Pokemon's ass, and don't even get me started on how he ALMOST took down Barry's level 100 Empoleon. Most underrated super midget in Pokemon history!

Draco meteor OP

Awesome dragon type. Garchomp is its evolution. Cynthia the champ has it

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

21 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!

How is Froakie not number 1. It is the only one of Ash's pokemon that has a temporary form change (Mega Evolution, Primal Reversion etc.).

Did Ash seriously get all these Pokemon? Lol

Poor last place froakie

22 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

Hawlucha's good

23 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

24 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

How long can a Butterfree live for? - 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.

25 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.

26 Boldore
27 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.

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

It lost to alain's bisharp

Only lost once! Super strong.

28 Lycanroc Lycanroc

Lycanroc won Ash's first league - yungstirjoey666

Lycanroc berserk 24/7

I love lyconroc and all it's forms

29 Cyndaquil Cyndaquil Cyndaquil, known in Japan as Hinoarashi, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
30 Snivy Snivy Snivy, known in Japan as Tsutarja, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


31 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

32 Oshawott Oshawott Oshawott, known in Japan as Mijumaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I want to tell that when first I started watching pokemon I saw oshawott I saw this pokemon in first

Ash train oshawott

33 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.

34 Pignite Pignite
35 Palpitoad Palpitoad
36 Unfezant Unfezant

Peasants me love this weak on beasts who isn't weak - Sambazing

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


37 Scraggy Scraggy
38 Fletchling Fletchling Fletchling, known in Japan as Yayakoma, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
39 Shiny Noctowl

Seriously, nobody noticed? His Noctowl is WAYYY better than Greninja the overrated airplane head

40 Glalie Glalie

Glalie did really well in the Johto League

Look at the wiki

41 Chimchar Chimchar Chimchar, known in Japan as Hikozaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
42 Corphish Corphish

He's just like bayleef-always wants to win even though he knows he can't win

43 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.

44 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

Won the p-1 against hitmonlee with no real training

45 Talonflame Talonflame

Sleek, cool body. Powerful fire attacks.

Talonflame is totally unbeatable

Talonflame because he beat Pyschic and Fairy gyms

The best flying type evah!

46 Exeggcute Exeggcute Exeggcute, known in Japan as Tamatama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

47 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

48 Noctowl Noctowl Noctowl is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II. It evolves from Hoothoot starting at level 20.

Ash’s shiny Noctowl is a classic for his team.

Its shiny

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

It was amazing... when it was a turtwig. When turtwig evolved, it sucked.

Ash's Torterra sucks.

Come on torterra should be on top 10

Don't evo turtwig

50 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.
