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). TeridaxXD001 (talk) 08:52, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

I was about to ask the same question before I saw it had been asked already, so I wanna draw attention to it again because I agree. TheFatPanda (talk) 13:47, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

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.

Ash's Xy section

Don't you think there's a bit too much on Ash's xy section? I think it's a bit too long and detailed to the point where it spoils important parts of episodes or just that it has minor unnecessarily parts. I feel like it is like this with characters like Bonnie, Serena and xy in general - unsigned comment from Mowahib (talkcontribs)

Obviously so. I've been planning to make heavy, heavy trims once I've watched all of XY, but that may not happen for awhile. In the meantime, you're welcome to do it yourself. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 14:30, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Sun and Moon Ash Statement

A friend brought this up to me earlier today and it has an official comment from the sound director on Twitter. So... uh... I'm going to mention this. Pikatwig (talk) 16:20, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

That article doesn't make a lot of sense and seems like overly agitated ramblings. It's much, much more likely that the tweet is simply misinterpreted: "not a continuation of XYZ" just means that it's a new season, just like Best Wishes could be seen as "not a continuation of DP" and XY as "not a continuation of Best Wishes". And "a completely new Satoshi and Pikachu" is patently ridiculous to take literally; it's probably referring to his character design, or else is a metaphor for, again, starting fresh with a new season.
Let me ask you this: if Sun & Moon Ash were really a new character who's not the same as Ash from previous seasons, then how would he have been able to refer to his Tauros in SM001? It's that simple. It's the same Ash as ever, period. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 16:36, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
The phrasing is up for interpretation, they could've meant it's not a continuation of XYZ in tone (which sound is a huge part of), since XYZ was of course much darker and intense than SM is, and that Ash is different to his XYZ version because he's more lax than semi-serious as he was in XYZ. I think if it was an entirely different reality they would've made a much bigger deal about it Azure/ChromeVoid42 (talk) 16:39, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
I'm simply bringing this up is all. Pikatwig (talk) 17:23, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
While I'm (sadly) leaning towards this being possible (consider the 20th movie being a drastically altered retelling of the first few episodes, and that reboots in general are for some reason huge in the entertainment industry right now), the article also argues that the Best Wishes series is a separate continuity, which is definitely untrue. TeridaxXD001 (talk) 20:05, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
Since the tweet also contains pencil artwork of the SM series, I think the director is most likely referring to the new art style. Satsjoe (talk) 20:36, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

Higher Quality Sun and Moon character artwork

I just found character artwork for the Sun and Moon series in a larger and higher quality. They are found on the Gulli (French TV channel) website. It also includes Ash without Pikachu. Sacha.jpg

Here's the link to the artwork: (Pansagetrent9 (talk) 15:43, 16 July 2017 (UTC))

Hey, this also includes high-quality artwork for most of the SM cast, nice!
The pictures have artifacts and the colors are a bit off, but I'll try to clean them up and upload them later. Thanks for the info! --Gabo 2oo (talk) 02:54, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Possible M20 split?

Unlike the other movies, M20 is not filler. It's been said to take place in a different dimension than the main series. In other words, M20!Ash=/=MS!Ash. Should we split the page, so that all the information concerning M20!Ash does not contradict the main page. Another reason is that the two characters lived different lives, had different outfits, different companions, etc. We would no place to write the exploits of M20!Ash. It could be like what the wiki did when separating EToP!Ash from the main Ash page. Iml908 (talk) 19:03, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

I've started a page for the other Ash within my user page, if anybody wants to expand upon and use it? TheFatPanda (talk) 13:42, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Poké Ride Stoutland picture

I removed he that picture for Poké Ride Stouland because it was updated and now don't fit for that space. I actually don't have permission for reverting or upload files. Can someone put this file instead [1] TossedDwarf5019 (talk) 16:42, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Done. Satsjoe (talk) 15:26, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
