Ash Ketchum (Japanese: サトシSatoshi) was the main character of both the Pokémon anime and the Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, and is believed to be based on the protagonist of the first generation Pokémon games. He is now married to Misty and is the father of Tracy.
He shares his Japanese name -- which can be taken to mean "wisdom" or "reason" (智) -- with the creator of the Pokémon franchise, Satoshi Tajiri. His English surname is a pun of the original English motto, "Gotta catch 'em all!."
Ash will battle with a team of three Pokémon randomly chosen from the following. As with most facilities of the Battle Frontier, the player is only allowed three Pokémon. However, the player may include the same item on more than one Pokémon.
