Ash's Fletchling (Japanese: サトシのヤヤコマ Satoshi's Yayakoma) is the second Pokémon that Ash Ketchum caught in the Kalos region.


Fletchling made its first appearance stealing a Berry that Bonnie was trying to feed to a wild Dedenne. Having made Bonnie cry, Ash's Froakie attempted to battle Fletchling, only to be repeatedly knocked out of the air. After Fletchling left, Clemont tried to attract it with one of his Clemontic Gears, only for Fletchling to set them up into being attacked by a swarm of Beedrill.

The chase led Ash and his friends to a canyon, where Froakie challenged Fletchling to another battle. Using the terrain to his advantage, Froakie managed to defeat Fletchling and this resulted in its capture by Ash. Fletchling was soon sent out again to be introduced to everyone else where it shared an Oran Berry with Froakie and Pikachu.

In A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!, Fletchling was used in Ash's battle against Viola. It was able to easily defeat her Surskit due to it being weakened from its previous battle with Pikachu. It then faced Viola's Vivillon, but was defeated after being knocked into Surskit's previously-laid Sticky Web, which prevented it from moving and left it defenseless to Vivillon's Solar Beam. Later, it trained with Alexa alongside Pikachu to prepare for a rematch against Viola.

In Battling on Thin Ice!, Fletchling was used against Viola in a rematch. It used the training with Alexa's Noivern to its advantage by riding Vivillon's Gust to create a spinning Razor Wind. Despite this, Fletchling was defeated after being hit by Sleep Powder, leaving it once again defenseless to Vivillon's Solar Beam.

Personality and characteristics

Prior to being caught by Ash, Fletchling would steal food from other Pokémon as shown when it took a berry from Dedenne. Also, it was mischievous as it led the group to a Beedrill swarm. It was also seen laughing at the group after they escaped the swarm; this shows that it has a sense of humor. After Ash caught Fletchling, it warmed up to the group and became friendly towards them.
