Ash’s Pokémon lineup varies by region, with the exception of Pikachu, but there are some great perks of being on his squad.
Throughout the Pokémon anime, Ash Ketchum has explored and traversed eight generations of regions and creatures. Every time he arrives in a new land, he will set out with Pikachu and a group of companions, with the task of winning all the Arena Badges of the region, participating in the Pokémon League tournament.
Each generation, Ash catches a new Pokémon, usually a creature exclusive to that region. Despite being a passionate and determined person, Ash’s methods for achieving his goals were not always right. Even so, his Pokémon are the very things that will help Ash achieve his dream. There are many perks to being one of Ash Ketchum’s Pokémon.
Will be part of the lineup that competes for the Gym Badge
While Ash’s companions often have a variety of goals and interests, the goal of every region is always to beat the best to become the best! This means that Ash will always join the Pokémon League, and win all the Gym Badges in that region.
For Pokémon that like to fight and want to become stronger, there are probably few trainers out there other than Ash that are suitable for this. He may not be the smart one when it comes to plans, but Ash always does his best to train for battles, especially a rematch to get revenge for losing.
If not in use, they can be taken to Professor Oak’s place
When Ash arrives in a new land, he usually leaves most of his Pokémon in Pallet Town with Professor Oak. Although it is quite sad to have to say goodbye because they were only with Ash for a short time, the Pokémon are still well cared for by Professors Oak and Tracey when they are transported to the laboratory.
Ash’s Pokémon will mostly be outside of the Poké Ball and spending time with other creatures without the pressure of combat, without having to deal with stressful situations. And these Pokémon are not completely forgotten by Ash, he still contacts them from time to time.
Going with Ash is taken care of even by his friends
Although Ash may care deeply about his Pokémon, he loves them very much, but Ash’s ability to take care of Pokémon is really not very good. Fortunately, he always has friends around him who are more interested in cooking and taking care of Pokémon than focusing on battles or competitions, such as Brock, Tracey and Cilan, they all help Ash in this regard. .
Especially Brock, he knows that when Pokémon needs to rest and eat, not only humans but creatures will also be able to eat a lot of delicious food. Brock’s desire to become a Pokémon breeder causes him to work very hard to keep the creatures of his party satisfied and well fed.
If anything happens, Ash will act to save his Pokémon
Attacks from Team Rocket show us Ash’s love for his Pokémon, which he often shows by working to rescue them from villains. Ash will never give up on a Pokémon, and they know this, so Ash has the trust of his Pokémon.
He has bet his life countless times to protect Pokémon from injury, Pikachu is just one of countless creatures that Ash has protected from harm. Not all trainers are kind and courageous, so any Pokémon that chooses to go with Ash is sure to gain a loyal friend who will always protect them.
More friends and more memories
A major benefit of accompanying Ash and his friends on their journey is friendship, which any of his Pokémon can forge. They spend a lot of time with humans and Pokémon, travel across regions, participate in battles, get lost together and go through a lot together, like one big family.
Such bonds in the wild would normally be limited to certain species, but with Ash and his friends’ Pokémon, people can discover more about other beings and about themselves as well.
