The main character on Pokemon is a trainer
named Ash Ketchum. Ever since he was a little boy, he dreamed
about becoming the
world's greatest Pokemon Master. When he turns ten, he's
finally old enough to be a Pokemon Trainer and go out and
Ash lives just down the road from the Pokemon
Lab owned by the famous Professor Oak.
On his tenth birthday, Ash gets his very first Pokemon
off Oak. He stays up
late the night before and watches Professor Oak on the
TV talking about the 3 different starter Pokemon, one of

Charmander. How will he ever choose?
A rooster's crow wakes Ash the next morning. In his dreams
he threw his alarm clock which is just like
a Pokeball and broke it. Now he's late to see Professor
Oak. He rushes down to the lab, praying that Oak has a Pokemon left
for him and he bumps into Gary, Oak's nephew.

a head start on him! Gary makea fun of Ash for being late, so Ash
runs up the lab steps and in the professor. He's led to
table with 3 Pokeballs
on - but they were all empty! Ash is so disappointed. Then Oak pressed
a button and another Pokeball appeared. There's
a problem with this Pokemon, though, but Ash doesn't care.
Oak handed him the Pokeball there was a great shock of electric
and a yellow Pokemon appears out
of the ball.
"It's name is Pikachu," says Oak.
Ash reaches out to pick Pikachu up, and the Pokemon gives
him a shock of energy.
"Pikachu is a lightning mouse. It is usually shy, but
can sometimes have a shocking personality."
Ash is given 6 empty Pokeballs and a Pokedex and now he
has a Pokemon he's ready to go and set out on his journey.
makes two good friends at the beginning of his journey, Misty
and Brock. They decide to go with him on his journey. Brock
goes with him to become the world's greatest Pokemon breeder
and Misty goes until Ash pays her back for the bike he wrecked
(not!) A gang called Team Rocket also follow him around trying
to steal his Pikachu and generally cause havoc. Ash's rival
Gary, is always ahead of Ash, but I think Ash is the best trainer!

This is Misty, she and her three sisters are the gym leaders
of the Cerulean City gym. She is also a good friend to Ash
and stays by his side until he repays her the for bike that
Ash destroyed in a thunderstorm running away from Spearow,
near Viridian City.
Throughout the TV series, there are hints that Misty has
a crush on Ash. She has never left him and gone on her
own journey and often throws Ash hints about
her true feelings for him. (Ash never picks them up though!)
One of the biggest hints Misty gave Ash was in
the Johto series on their way to Olivine City. Brock saves
a girl from falling and then she wants to get married to him!
Misty says during the episode 'and one day we will be married
too,' Ash replies 'Um... WHAT!' Misty may have a crush on Ash
but I don't think Ash feels the same way!
Although Misty acts tough of the outside she has a heart
of gold. She even helps Team Rocket when Jessie is sick from
Stun Spore and needs some of the underwater weed to cure
her, Misty needed the weed to cure Ash and Brock but she
is kind enough to leave some of the weed for James to take
to Jessie. She is friendly and always sticks by her friends
through thick and thin. She saves most girls from Brock and
his instant love (ha, ha!) She loves water type Pokemon and
her favourite Pokemon is Tentecruel which she dreams of capturing.
Misty is nice even if she is a bit bossy.

Brock is the gym leader of the Pewter City Gym but is also
a very good friend to Ash. Before meeting Ash, he was the carer
of his ten little brothers and sisters. After a rematch against
Brock in which Ash earned the badge, Brock's father reveals
himself and lets Brock go along with Ash promising to take
care of his children.
Brock is the oldest and most sensible
of the gang but that's only when there are no girls about!
He acts crazy when he sees
girl and says the maddest of things - which often leaves
the girls speechless. It is usually Misty who saves them
away - usually by the ear.
On the other hand, if a girl likes
him, he freezes up! Brock finally gets
chance to be with
a girl, Professor Ivy. He decides to stay at her lab and help
her out while Ash goes questing in the Orange League. Ash gets
a new friend to go with him though, a boy named Tracey.
oldest in the gang, Brock tends to look after the others.
He cooks and cleans and generally looks out for his friends.
and Ash realise just how much Brock does for them in the episode
in the Johto series when Brock isn't well. His favourite type
of Pokemon are rock type, but he does have a Vulpix and Zubat
evolves into Golbat and then Crobat.) Brock loves Pokemon and
hopes that someday he will become the greatest Pokemon breeder.
Brock is a great guy.

Here comes trouble! It's Team Rocket! Jessie, James and
Meowth, the most annoying gang of losers of all. Team Rocket's
greatest desire is to steal valuable and amazing Pokemon
to take back to their boss, Giovanni.
But there is one Pokemon in particular that they want to
steal, and that happens to be non other than Ash's Pikachu.
For this reason, Team Rocket always follow Ash around every
where and generally cause chaos. They have managed to get
Pikachu loads of times but Ash always manages to get it back.
Then Ash uses Pikachu's Thunderbolt to send them blasting
Team Rocket's motto is:
Jessie: Prepare for trouble
James:And make it double
Jessie: To protect the world from devastation
James: To unite all people within out nation
Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love
James: To extend our reach to the stars above
Jessie: Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light
James: Surrender now or prepare to fight
Meowth: Meowth, that's right!
Jessie was always a very lonely child, she didn't have any
real friends. She hates Santa because once she saw his Jynx
take her favourite toy and never return it. What Jessie didn't
realise was that the Jynx took it because it was broken and
after Santa had fixed it, he couldn't return it because Jessie
had stopped believing in him.
James, on the other hand was brought up into a very rich
family. He hated it, though, because his parents wanted him
to get married to a girl named Jessebel. Jessebel was pretty
enough but James hated her because she wanted to change him
and make him polite. James hated this and wished she would
just let him be. He only had one friend, his pet Pokemon
Growlithe, Growlithe always protected him from Jessebel.
When James met Jessie it was the best time he'd ever had,
because Jessie liked him for who he was.
Meowth was a Pokemon who went around with a gang of Meowth.
They stole food and made chaos, then one day Meowth fell
in love with a female trainers Meowth called Meowzee. Meowth
tried to make Meowzee like him, but she said she liked humans
not Pokemon. Meowth tried to act like a human, at first he
learnt how to stand on two feet and walk on two feet, then
he learnt the difficult human speech.
Team Rocket are blunderers and if ever something happens,
it's usually them who are behind it, but Ash, Misty and Brock
can always sort them out.
Back to the top
Tracey is one of Ash's friends and goes around with him and Misty in the Orange
Island journeys when Brock decides to stay with Professor Ivy. He is older
then Misty and Ash and takes on Brock's role quite well.
Tracey is quite an artist. His main reason to go around with Ash and Misty
in the Orange Islands is so he can get some great drawings of rare Pokemon.
He idolises Professor Oak and is thrilled when he gets a chance to talk to
Oak and show him some of his sketches.
He draws a part of a mysterious new Pokemon which
no one knows it is at that time (Elekid) and that was one of
his most famous Pokemon sketches. But Tracey didn't only sketch
Pokemon. When Ash battled against the first of the Orange Crew
Sissy, Tracey sketched her riding on top of her Blastoise!
Tracey is a great friend to Ash and Misty. He is kind to
all Pokemon ad tries to help out when ever possible. The
only reason he didn't stay with them was because Brock came
back and he had the chance to work with Professor Oak.
Back to the top
Gary Oak is Ash's greatest rival. He has always been mean
and nasty to Ash and always gets better things than Ash. Gary
set off on his quest at the same time as Ash, choosing Bulbasaur
off of Prof. Oak - who happens to be his Grandfather. Because
of Oak's experience with Pokemon, Gary naturally got the best
starter (besides Pikachu!) Bulbasaur. But from somewhere he
got an Eevee which became his strongest Pokemon.
In Kanto, Gary
collected more badges than Ash from various different
gyms and caught a lot more Pokemon but when in
League he didn't get as far as Ash (proving Ash is a better
He isn't seen in the Orange Islands and doesn't
reappear until 'Rival Revival' when his Eevee defeats Pikachu
(lucky fluke.) and then he already gets a head start on Ash
in the Johto region. (*:*)
He might have got a head start but he needs it because
Ash is a much better trainer(!) and although Gary
does care for his Pokemon, Ash loves his more.

This is Nurse Joy, a nurse found at Pokemon Centres. There
are many Joy's all over the Pokemon world who all look identical,
