In the books and animated series, we follow the main protagonist Ash Ketchum or his Japanese name Satoshi in his journey in travelling the world and taking on all Pokemon Gym Leaders and evil organisations he encounters with his trusted allies and team like Pikachu, Misty and Brock to name a few.
Ketchum begins his journey with his first and arguably the most iconic and recognizable faces of the series Pikachu. Ketchum arrives late in receiving his first pokemon from Professor Oak’s laboratory, in fact Ketchum wanted to choose Squirtle the water starter pokemon but was left with no choice but to choose Pikachu who was at first very disobedient and headstrong towards Ketchum. However after experiencing a traumatic event with a flock of Spearows attacking and Ketchum’s determination to protect Pikachu and almost facing life and death, Pikachu was deeply touched and protected the protagonist with a lightning charged retaliation back at the flock of Spearows. Since this event, the pair became an inseparable duo and stuck together in every challenge to come.
Ketchum is a young and inexperienced 10 year old trainer who has the aspiration to catch all of the original 150 pokemon. However, he soon realizes that the world is filled with mighty trainers with dominating teams and he is faced with many problems along the way but he is supported by his trusted friends Misty and Brock. His journey starts out in the region of Kanto. Ketchum is driven yet impulsive and often gets himself into trouble and predicaments due to his passion of becoming a Pokemon Master, he often acts bold but rash. However this careless and daring personality has helped him attain every Gym badge from Kanto’s Gym Leaders, although a huge achievement for this young boy, it is just a small part to something much greater as he sets off to his next journey.
