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.

History

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.

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 and Stoutland

Litten briefly appeared in Loading the Dex! in which 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 offered it a piece of the sandwich, it 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 it. 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 it to Professor 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. During their search, the trio got caught by Team Rocket. However, they managed to escape thanks to Litten and blasted Team Rocket off with their combined attacks. After Rowlet and Popplio were reunited with their Trainers, Litten ran off again.

In SM021, Litten stole a donut Ash dropped and was chased back to its home by him. Ash witnessed how Stoutland helped it learn Fire Fang, but Litten was unsuccessful to master the move. Later on, Litten ran up to Ash, desperate for help with a collapsed Stoutland. After escaping Team Rocket, Ash was brought to its home and carried Stoutland to the Pokémon Center. Litten ran into the emergency room to be its friend while Nurse Joy informed Ash of Stoutland's condition. When Ash returned to the center the next day to check on Litten and Stoutland, he was shocked to see they had left. At its home, Litten practised its Fire Fang again, but failed once more. 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.

Ash and Litten

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. Wracked with grief, Litten looked up to the sky and started yowling. Ash and his Pokémon later found Litten asleep on the sofa, curled up next to the tree's leaf, and kept visiting it to comfort the Fire Cat Pokémon. While the others were still sleeping next to the sofa, Litten woke up as the rain stopped saw a cloud formation shaped like Stoutland behind a rainbow, seemingly smiling in approval. Gathered with resolve, Litten offered Ash a Sitrus Berry. Afterwards, Litten agreed to battle Ash and Pikachu, and was able to successfully execute Fire Fang. After the battle, Litten allowed Ash to catch it, the Trainer having finally gained its trust. When sent out again, Litten happily joined in with the rest of Ash's 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. After Litten accepted Stoutland's absence, it began trying to offer its food to Ash like it had done with Stoutland.
