Ash's Litten (Japanese: サトシのニャビー Satoshi's Nyabby) is the third Pokémon that Ash caught in the Alola region.


As a wild Pokémon

In the past, Litten was rescued by an aging wild Stoutland, and the two began to live together. However, the Stoutland soon became too old to search for food by itself, leaving Litten to do the gathering.

This Litten first appeared in Alola to New Adventure!, relaxing on the beaches of Melemele Island before it was accidentally stepped on by Ash when he was racing with Pikachu. Litten, in anger, attacked Ash with Ember and walked off.

Litten briefly appeared in Loading the Dex! where it approached the Pokémon School and watched Komala. Litten was later seen in First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-style!, being fed by an Old woman in a marketplace on the beach, where it saw a wild Rowlet carrying off a wind chime.

In That's Why Litten is a Scamp!, Litten approached Ash and Pikachu in an attempt to get something to eat. When Ash offer him a piece of the sandwich he was going to have for lunch that day, Litten stole the larger portion and ran off, only to be stopped and foiled by an Alolan Persian. Annoyed by Litten's trickery, Ash promised to catch Litten. The next day, Ash and Pikachu saw Litten being attacked by the previous Alolan Persian and stopped it. Litten, despite being on the verge of collapse, protested against being brought to the Pokémon Center, biting and scratching Ash all the way there. After being treated, Ash brought Litten to Kukui's house, but it managed to escape in the middle of the night. Ash, Pikachu, and Rotom followed Litten to an abandoned house, where they discovered that Litten had been gathering food for an old Stoutland. Having learned this, Ash decided to give up on capturing Litten, leaving it to care for its caretaker. Suddenly, the group was attacked by the Alolan Persian from earlier. Ash had everyone leave the house, where Pikachu and Litten then started battling the Persian. Litten eventually defeated Persian, and successfully protected Stoutland. The next day, Ash discovered that Litten and Stoutland had relocated. After being assured by the old lady of the marketplace that Litten was doing fine, Litten appeared from behind her to grab the fruit she had prepared and ran off into the distance.

Litten reappeared in SM016 when Ash's Rowlet and Lana's Popplio got separated from their Trainers and fought Meowth off when he tried to catch them. It took them to Stoutland, who told Litten to go and help Rowlet and Popplio get back to their Trainers, which Litten reluctantly did.

Litten reappeared in SM021. It stole a donut Ash dropped with the intention of giving it to Stoutland, and was chased back to the canal where it and Stoutland were staying by Ash, his team and Rotom. Stoutland attempts to help it learn Fire Fang and demonstrates it by biting a log, and Litten hurts itself when it attempts the move on a rock. Later on, Litten runs up to Ash while he is walking down the path to school, desperate for help with a collapsed Stoutland. After Pikachu fires an Electro Ball at the ground to allow them to escape Meowth, Ash is able to carry Stoutland to a Pokémon Center. Litten runs into the emergency room to be with Stoutland when the Nurse Joy exits to inform him of Stoutland's condition. Stoutland is discharged without Ash's knowledge, leaving him, Pikachu and Rotom in a panic to as where they had gone. They found Meowth, who directed them back to the canal where the two Pokemon were originally staying out of concern for the deteriorating Stoutland. Later on, Stoutland attempted to teach Litten Fire Fang again, but fell asleep as Litten bit the rock again. Displeased with having the same results as its previous attempt, Litten curled up into Stoutland and fell asleep, proceeding to have a dream where it chased after Stoutland and was unable to catch up. Litten soon woke up alone and immediately flew into panic again, searching over various parts of Melemele Island for Stoutland including its former manor hime.

Upon returning home, one of the supports of the sofa the two Pokémon had been sleeping on broke as a tree shed its last leaf and a massive storm whipped up over Melemele, with the implication that Stoutland had left to pass away elsewhere in isolation. Wracked with grief, Litten looks up to the sky and started yowling. Ash and his team later find Litten asleep on the sofa, curled up next to the tree's leaf, while Meowth looks on overhead from a bridge. While the others are laying down next to the sofa, Litten is awoken by the rain stopping and the wind blowing the leaf away when it sees a cloud formation shaped like Stoutland behind a rainbow, seemingly smiling in approval. Gathered with resolve, Litten brings Ash one of the Sitrus Berries he had brought earlier, and offered by Ash and pushed it back to him several times with the intention of letting him eat it. After that, Litten allows Ash and Pikachu to battle it, and is able to successfully execute Fire Fang to bite down on Pikachu's tail when it attempts to use Iron Tail. The battle ends when Ash offers his Poké Ball, and Litten agrees to be captured, the Trainer having finally gained its trust. When let out again, Litten happily joined in with the rest of his Pokémon when he poured out the rest of the berries in his shopping bag.

With Ash

Personality and characteristics

Litten is a stubborn Pokémon that tends to keep its emotions and motives hidden. Its closest friend is an old Stoutland that once helped it when it had lost consciousness. Litten has been seen training itself with Stoutland's guidance. Litten has a very close relationship with Stoutland, and deeply cared for it, as evidenced by Litten's dreams about it.

Litten has difficulty getting close to humans, but seems to get along well with the old lady of the marketplace, often visiting her when it needs food. When Stoutland thought it would be a good idea for Litten to join Ash, Litten wasn't keen on the idea. When Stoutland collapsed due to ill health, Litten's disposition completely changed and it was desperate for Ash to come help it. Following Stoutland's death and Litten's subsequent capture by Ash, it begins trying to offer its food to him like it had done with Stoutland.
