Ash's Froakie (Japanese: サトシのケロマツ Satoshi's Keromatsu) is the first Pokémon that Ash obtained in the Kalos region.


Froakie's previous Trainers

Froakie originally belonged to Professor Sycamore, as one of the three starter Pokémon a new Pokémon Trainer could choose. It first saw Ash when he fell down from the Prism Tower in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!. It continued to observe the gang until Team Rocket intervened in Ash and Clemont's friendly Pokémon battle. It volunteered to help out by successfully using its Frubbles to counter Jessie's Wobbuffet, but ended up receiving quite a bit of damage during the encounter. Ash then decided to take it to Professor Sycamore's lab, where it was treated and restored to full health. Upon asking about its Trainer, the professor told Ash that its Trainer had called to give Froakie back. He revealed that Froakie had gone through several Trainers, but came back either from leaving them or being returned for being disobedient.

Ash and his Froakie

Later on, Team Rocket attempted to use a ring-type device against Froakie, but the lab's Garchomp got caught in the middle instead, causing her to go on a rampage after the machine malfunctioned. Ash, along with his Pikachu and newly befriended Froakie, headed out to rescue Garchomp. In order to prevent her from falling down the Prism Tower, Froakie used its Frubbles on Garchomp's feet and Pikachu broke the device using Iron Tail.

While leaving Professor Sycamore's laboratory the next day, Froakie threw a chunk of its Frubbles in Ash's face in order to get his attention. It was standing alongside a Poké Ball on the floor in front of it, expressing its desire to join his party. Froakie then happily pressed the Poké Ball's button and was captured.

In XY003, Froakie was introduced to Professor Oak, where he was fascinated by it. For most of the trip on Route 4, Froakie was seen outside of its Poké Ball. After a wild Fletchling took a Berry that Bonnie was going to give to a Dedenne, Froakie stubbornly attempted to fight Fletchling, only to lose. After Ash learned that it was only trying to get payback at Fletchling for making Bonnie sad, Ash and Froakie challenged Fletchling to one final battle, which ended in both its defeat and capture.

In XY006, Froakie helped train Pikachu and Fletchling for the rematch against Viola. It used its Frubbles for Pikachu and Fletchling to dodge.

Personality and characteristics

Froakie is a stubborn Pokémon, displayed by the fact that it had several other Trainers that it refused to listen to, either forcing them to return it to Professor Sycamore or abandoning them and returning to the lab itself. It is also extremely similar to Ash personality wise, possibly more than Pikachu, as it is not afraid to leap into danger regardless of its own safety and doesn't back down from a fight. It is clear that it recognizes these traits in Ash, hence why it was finally willing to accept being taken into Ash's wing. It also has a sense of honor, as demonstrated when it attacked Fletchling just because it made Bonnie cry.

Moves improvised
  • Frubble (Japanese: ケロムース Keromousse) — a physical characteristic of Froakie. It reaches into the bubbles on its neck, pulling out handfuls of bubbles and throwing them at its opponents much like an actual attack. This is used usually to subdue the opponent allowing for Froakie to strike while they are distracted. However, it can also be used as a kind of adhesive, and Froakie can also use the frubbles to make a copy of itself.


  • With Froakie, this is the first time that Ash captures a starter Pokémon as his first Pokémon in a region.
    • Froakie is also Ash's first capture of a region that isn't a Flying-type since Heracross.
  • Froakie is Ash's first Pokémon to be owned by more than one Trainer before him.
