~ Ash Ketchum

Ash Ketchum is the protagonist of the Pokémon anime and the 'Electric Tale of Pikachu' manga. Ash is not to be confused with Red, one of the protagonists of the video game series.

BackgroundEdit

Ash was enrolled into Professor Oak's Pokémon Summer Camp when he was young. One day, another camper named Serena got lost in the forest and wounded her leg after getting startled by a Poliwag. Ash, who was looking for the Poliwag, came to her rescue and wrapped a handkerchief around the wounded knee to brace it. He then helped her up and guided her out of the forest.

At some point before starting their journeys, Ash was friends with Gary Oak until they both fished out a Poké Ball on both their lines. After arguing about who keeps it, they broke it in two, each keeping one half as a reminder of that day.

Many years later Ash woke up late to pick up his first Pokémon, at first he seemed to want Bulbasaur, but neither Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle were available so he was given Pikachu as a last desperation. At first, Pikachu hated Ash, but after protecting him from a flock of Fearow, Pikachu found that he should actually be friends with the young trainer, ad so they did from Kanto, currently to Alola.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

  • Aura: Aura is a spiritual life energy within all humans and Pokémon, Ash's is significantly stronger than most other human's allowing his to sense the aura of others, and can project out his aura to heal others, however the cost can be fatal if too much of Ash's Aura is used.
  • Willpower: Ash's Willpower and tenacity have let him stay awake while listening to Jigglypuff's Song, let him get up  after a telekinetic attack out of sheer willpower, fought off against possession because someone called hi a coward, and let him form a bond with Azelf, to the point where if he got hurt, so would Azelf. Azelf's and Ash's bond and Willpower was also able to destroy a black hole.
  • Besides his own Abilities, his power comes from his large amount of Pokémon, however because he has a vast amount, all will be separated from what region they were caught.
