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 (Japanese: ピカチュウ) 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.

Pickachu is a great pokemon with tons of personality. I understand that he the mascot but seriously his endearing personality makes him one of Ash's best pokemon. He went from completely hating Ash in the beggining to loving him so much. The earlier seasons gave him and Ash a lot more personality but at least Pickachu through out every series has a lot more personality that Ash.

He'a only supet poweful because Ash boostes the heck out of him I episode 5 by using a hydroelectric plant to boos Pikachu's electricity, it's the equivalance of using a cheat code in a game.

Overrated greninja glad u r gone. While I hate the overrated rat in the games, the anime it took on a latios pratcally by itself tying with it, that was raised by a trainer in the Pokemon league. As well as is the one that mostly takes out gym leader's ace, & take out a lot of Pokemon in the league that pulled ash through. Had ash-greninja ever took on a legendary by itself & just tied with it? No. Get that overrated frog down lower

Pikachu is the best Pokemon of ash. He's obedient and strong. He always leads ash to victory. He has helped ash to win many badges like thunder batch etc. He's a cute Pokemon and ash's best friend. He's not like charizard who never obeys ash. He has all the qualities of a good and strong Pokemon

2 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 ...read more.

I don't know why people can't understand Charizard's power it's full power and potential is not shown in the anime yet. Its power is unimaginable and limitless

Please this guy could do anything. He never fails to surprise me. That battle against Magyar was incredible I don't know why he got it in an early region. Ash gets stronger throughout the regions with the exemption of unova. I feel beating an articuno but losing to a poliwrath doesn't make sence. It should of been the other way around. This guy should of returned in the kalos and mega evolved into mega charizard x if he did he would of destroyed Alain.

Charizard is the best pokemon of ash. It is far better than greninja. I can't underestimate greninja but charizard has take ash to victory when it was needed. It also has won many battles for ash on its own. He even did't got as many chances as greinja. The early disagreement with ash made his chances low and we still have not seen charizard at its full form after training from chrisiphic valley. He did'nt had any battle except the one with Iris. Which was stopped in between.

Ash's Charizard has beaten Magmar and taurus in the initial stages. That was the time when it didn't listen to Ash. It's seismic toss I think is the most powerful attack till date. After that Its power has further increased on training with Lisa. I think now it can be hardly be defeated until a very strong water pokemon comes in front.

3 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.

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!

"I say Ash's Infernape deserved to be on his 10 best pokemon list, and get the fourth spot. Who could not like Ash's Infernape, I mean he defeated Volkner's Luxray and Jolteon, and helped Ash win some gym battles. But most of all he helped Ash defeat Paul in the Sinnoh League with his powerful blaze ability (which is also one of the many reasons why he's my favorite out of all of Ash's pokemon). So Infernape is literally like one of Ash's strongest and best pokemon he has.

He defeats two of gym leader's Pokemon 3 times in a row as a chimchar, hit by empoleon's supper effective Hydro Cannon as a monferno and still doesn't knock it out, when evolve into Infernape, he killed Jolteon with one hit mach punch and KO half of Paul's team. Infernape has blue flame attack that Charizard never has, since blue flames are hotter than normal flame, we can assume that Ash's Infernape is stronger than Ash's Charizard.

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

Sceptile was Ash's powerhouse in the Hoenn region. Not only that but it has a win over Darkrai (a legendary) under its belt. That was just a recent battle anyway... This goes to show how much potential it really has! I'm telling you, if Ash had to choose six Pokemon in a battle to fight to the death, Sceptile would definitely be a candidate. Besides, Sceptile knows way too many good moves such as Solarbeam; Leaf Blade; Agility and even Leaf Storm which is the second best grass type move (in terms of power) besides Frenzy Plant.

It holds the record for facing the most Legendaries at three, having battled Brandon's Regirock and Tobias' Darkrai & Latios and the only known pokemon to defeat that Darkrai. Other than that it has shown great courage and speed.

I think Sceptile is fastest Ash's pokemon, and with his insane power that destroys Darkrai with one hit (without any mega evolution) he should be ahead of Greninja. He should be second. (After Charizard)

It is the best and could more enough than any thinking I think charizard is good but sceptile always is no. One in my heart

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

Pikachu has only won battle with the type advantages. In that way, every pokemon would be greater than the other. Unlike it Charizard and Snolax had won battle inspite of type Disadvantages.

Ash's Snorlax gave up in a battle it was sleeping! like, what the heck? Horrible pokemon sleep in the middle of a battle! So unloyal! He had to give him up because he ate to much lol.

All of Ashes pokemon at the time of Orange Island (including charizard) attacking all at once didn't faze it.

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

6 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolved 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 has the ability Protean, which changes ...read more.

Water types in general are some of my pokemon such as Swampert, Krabby, and Gyarados and FINALLY they made a fast,sick,and powerful pokemon! Ash also has a REALLY good bond with Greninja which they can "fuse" to become Ash-Greninja and now HE'S EVEN MORE POWERFUL! His ability is just amazing as well as his move pool. He should definitely be number one because: most of his battles he won, he's WAYFaster, Just because charizard has defeated a legendary pokemon greninja didn't get a chance ti fight a legendary, his base stats are sick, charizard doesn't get along as well as greninja does, if charizard didn't get a mega evolution he would be a sucky starter, and greninja is way more dope

Charizard is strong, but Greninja is certainly more powerful. Ash-Greninja is undeniably stronger than Charizard. Charizard's best feat includes beating an untrained Articuno and sweeping half of Gary's Team. Ash-Greninja's best feats include: Overwhelming the CHAMPION'S Ace Pokémon and fighting a Charizard who can beat E4 members on an even playing field. Even WITHOUT Ash-Greninja, Greninja can still engage Alain's Mega Charizard and hold his own. I think Greninja can handle Charizard without Ash-Greninja, and most certainly beat him with it.

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!

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!

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

Squirtle is just awesome! He acts cool, I like his awesome glasses, he cares when people are in trouble (Watch that Blastoise episode when all the squirtles and wartortles fall asleep! ), he has an awesome funny voice, he has a move called bubble that can defeat a machoke in one hit, almost everything about squirtle is awesome!

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 is ash's best in kanto apart from charizard or bulbasaur

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

Hey uh guy below me. Um yeah. Why u being a gen1er? Not even considering other gen pokemon? Seriously? by the way ashs pikachu sucks. Sure it beat two legendary being regice and latios, but it also lost to Snivy. Who was level 5. And never battled before. Even though pikachu was sick, he hit snivy with quick attack which should have been a one hit ko. Seriously though. Infernape, Sceptile, Gliscor,Greninja were not even considered? Wow. Just, wow.

If you watched that Battle Frontier episode with Brandon, you would realize that Ash's Bulbasaur is a powerhorse. He took down Dusclops (who defeated Charizard) and Solrock (who defeated Squirtle) in the same episode.
And that even despite him taking multiple Fire and Psychic attacks. You guys should stop sleeping on Bulbasaur.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

10 Lapras

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

Lapras is the 2nd best water type after mega gyarados

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

Lapras for the win

The Contenders
11 Bayleef

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

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

Love the affection especially when it was a Chikorita.

Loved this thing... always damn loses

12 Krookodile

Ash's best pokemon in the unova region. I personally didn't like the unova pokemons but ash's Krookodile was very strong. It helped ash in the league and the gym battles in a very big way. He should be 4th.

Its power is outstanding and its glasses makes it pretty good

Why did ash not use it in his battle with Cameron

It wears glasses can't get more cooler than that

13 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

Gliscor is one of my favorite pokemon and definitely one of ash's best.

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

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

Is a amazing pokemon and us can't forget him

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

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

Super strong pokemon

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

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

Without a doubt ash's best bird Pokemon

Just my favorite of ash's pokemon

It's better than a charizard

16 Swellow

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

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

Resistant to electricity as a taillow

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

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

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

Really underrated - a complete boss

Ash's Kingler is underrated monster.

18 Lycanroc

Lycanroc won Ash's first league

Lycanroc berserk 24/7

I love lyconroc and all it's forms

Amazing.He looks so cool to,love em.

19 Pidgeotto

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

20 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, ...read 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.

If this list is by win/loss record, goodra wins from the fact that it has never lost a battle.

If this list is by raw power, goodra also wins from having the highest numerical stats (with the possible exception of ash-greninja).

Come on it's a psuedolegendary. it's the most powerful Pokemon ash ever owned with base stat 600. it also defeated florges with a single ice-beam in Pokemon xy
Episode 69

The cutest, he even gave up Ash to protect his budz!

He is also so strong! Its amazing!

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

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!

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

TOTODILE? Who ever heard of a strong totodile?

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

Donphan is so awesoma!

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

24 Talonflame

Sleek, cool body. Powerful fire attacks.

Talonflame is totally unbeatable

Talonflame because he beat Pyschic and Fairy gyms

The best flying type evah!

25 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).

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

How long can a Butterfree live for?

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.
