Ash's Pidove (Japanese: サトシのマメパト Satoshi's Mamepato) is the first Pokémon that Ash Ketchum caught in the Unova region.


Ash and Pidove

As he has done in every other region he has traveled, Ash usually catches a Template:Type2 Pokémon early in his journey. Pidove was caught soon after Ash's arrival in Unova. In Enter Iris and Axew!, shortly after a flock of Pidove had escaped when Ash had failed to capture one of them, he noticed her pecking at the ground, and engaged her in a battle. She managed to put up a good fight against Ash's Pikachu, until the Electric Mouse Pokémon finally used Thunderbolt, and caused her to faint. Ash threw a Poké Ball and successfully caught her.

Later on, for the first time, Pidove was sent out in an effort to save Pikachu and Iris's Axew from Team Rocket's capture. However, as she was still weak from her last battle, she was quickly defeated by Jessie's Woobat. She was later healed at the Pokémon Center.

Pidove was occasionally used by Ash to find and track certain Pokémon. She helped Ash find two Darumakka in BW008 and a wild Snivy in BW007, playing a dominant role in the Grass Pokémon's capture. At that time, Pidove had followed Snivy throughout from the time she escaped using Leaf Storm. As she witnessed all of Ash's other Pokémon (Oshawott and Tepig) fall to the Grass Snake Pokémon's Attract, she volunteers to battle Snivy. When Snivy attempted to use Attract on Pidove, Pidove was unaffected as she was female (a fact of which Ash had been completely unaware of, despite Iris and Dent's assumptions that it was his strategy). After a hard-fought battle, Pidove weakened Snivy just enough for her to be captured by Ash.

In BW010 she was used by Ash in a 5-on-5 battle against Shooti's Pururiru. She tried her best but was taken by surprise by his Water Pulse, and got knocked out in the process.
