Rotom Pokédex in "Unofficial" Segment

The Rotom Pokédex qualifies under that category and travels alongside Ash and his buddies. Should it be included? If so, the template will need a minor adjustment for this to work. Pikatwig (talk) 03:05, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

I'm all for its inclusion. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 21:51, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Ash staying 10years old

The convention in Delaware with the original voice actor of Jessie when asked Ash's age said he was still 10 because the show is an evergreen show.--Pokemonfansuper 13:46, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

In the games section

Should we have a section of Ash's appearances in the games? He's appeared in Puzzle League and implied to be the writer of the letter at the beginning of the Sun and Moon demo. He's also present in all the SEGA Pico games, and there are event Pokémon based on his Pokémon (like Ash's Pikachu back in Generation IV and now Ash-Greninja).

Taking Care Of segment for Pokémon Egg

Since both he and Lillie were tasked with watching over the Pokémon Egg, it should be noted on both of their pages. Pikatwig (talk) 18:17, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Poke Ride

Why don't we add the Poke ride Pokémon that Ash uses? I had added Sharpedo, Tauros and Lapras but they removed? Why should Poke Ride be listed on Kiawe'd page but not Ash's? Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 17:53, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Everything that Ash uses or interacts with in any way should not (IMO) be notable. He rides Poke Ride Pokemon. So? That's what they're there for, he doesn't own them or anything significant. I really think random Poke Ride Pokemon should be removed from others' pages too, but I removed them here in particular because Ash just has so many Pokemon listed, and these ones really didn't deserve it (again, IMO). Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:10, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

But he actually using them in the series as Kiawe have Pokemon to ride at school as it shown own his page. He doesn't own the Taurus from the Pokemon school or the wailmer. If I'm correct, dose that mean Ash on his article should have those Pokemon own his article. Ash shown to use few Pokemon that aren't in the game to ride on such as Wailmer and pelipper. Should we add those Pokemon it seems important for the series articles. --DragoAlex (talk) 19:29, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Split suggestion

I propose that we split off the lists of Ash's Pokémon into a secondary article, which could be titled "Ash Ketchum's Pokémon," "Ash's Pokémon," "Ash Ketchum/Pokémon," or anything similar. By my count, the anime list alone takes up a full quarter of this page's ridiculous size (25k of ~100k bytes). In my opinion, this page should keep whatever Ash has in his party or in rotation, since that's what's relevant to the current anime, and everything else would be visible on the secondary page without cluttering up this main page. Thanks for your consideration. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:21, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I think it's the temporary Pokémon section that's taking up the most space and should be split off the page. We do have a List of Pokémon temporarily owned by the Team Rocket trio, so we can do the same for Ash's temporary Pokémon. However, everything else is too important to place elsewhere.--ForceFire 03:46, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
I second Force Fire's suggestion! Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 12:34, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
I've started a page, feel free to edit it and make suggestions.--ForceFire 05:44, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I'm also with ForceFire. And what do you think about putting together released, traded away, given away and unofficial Pokemon to "lost Pokemon"?--Dominikololo (talk) 15:09, 18 February 2017 (UTC)


First off I realized that Pikachu was edited in Ash's picture when in reality he should be alone like this: Ash-Pikachu-Sun-Moon-Anime.jpg Can someone remove pikachu from the picture?

Also for when the 20th movie comes out should we change his picture to his movie appearance? - unsigned comment from Theexploringgamer (talkcontribs)

The image will not be replaced, because the movie is a standalone thing, whereas his current outfit will go on for a while after the movie airs, so there's no point in changing it for the movie and then changing it back afterwards when the next Sun and Moon episode airs.
