Maybe I'm being unfair, but compared to the whole Pokedex‚ÄĒwhich has over 600 Pok√©mon, at this point‚ÄĒthe number of Pok√©mon Ash has owned over the years seems laughable.

Here's an image that breaks down what Pokémon Ash has caught and when in the show, along with who his (human) companions were at the time.

Interestingly, Ash seems to favor water-type Pokémon, but has never owned a steel-type or a psychic-type. Weird. And he's only owned one ghost-type? C'mon, Ash, those are the coolest ones!


Apparently the show is turning 15 next year. Boy do I feel old. I still remember when Ash set Butterfree free....
