** Said friends typically don't like threats towards Ash either and most of them either are or become truly competent trainers in their own right with fairly powerful Pokemon. Just...don't mess with Ash, okay?
* Ash earns the respect of his Pokemon and typically their affection. Do ''not'' threaten and/or harm Ash in front of ''any'' of his Pokemon; it won't end well for you.

* Max isn't a trainer yet but he frequently develops friendships with Pokemon he meets on his travels. If you value your health, don't even ''consider'' coming near those Pokemon with less than noble intentions.

* Max may not always get along with May but he's still her little brother and she loves him very much; threaten the kid with no Pokeballs and his [[BigSisterInstinct big sis will demonstrate just how much Coordinating has boosted her training skills]].

** Heaven help you if you mess up or insult Jessie's hair as well. This is one of the many things that can easily set her off. Poor Seviper... she ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome defeated]]'' (and subsequently caught) him ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown bare-handed]]'' after he accidentally tore it off!

[[AC:Anime]]
* Butch, a member of ''{{Pokemon}}'''s Team Rocket, will not take happily [[AccidentalMisnaming someone butchering (no pun intended) his name.]] Some examples include Botch, Bob, Bill, Biff, Butcher, Buffy (seriously), and a variety of other names (except for [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch the obvious one]], [[GoshDangItToHeck unsurprisingly]]). In Japanese, the mistake is always Kosanji (instead of Kosaburo).

* If you try to claim that Pokemon battles aren't art around Siebold, he absolutely loses it.

[[AC:Pokémon Special]]
* [[PokemonSpecial Silver and Blue]] were raised as part of the Mask of Ice's recruitment and training campaign, and the two of them have developed a bond of their own (whether it be one of [[LikeBrotherAndSister siblings]] or [[ChildhoodFriendRomance possibly more]] doesn't really matter - that they're ''[[TrueCompanions precious]]'' to one another ''is''). Green's "noisy woman" comments about Blue are responded to with a glare from Silver as a reminder that he is ''on notice''; if you harass or bring harm to her, he will turn you inside out.

[[AC:Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure]]
* [[PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure Hareta]] has a hard time understanding the concept of evil - one of his buddies is an ex-Galactic, he lets several wrongdoers slide (though he does stop them from time to time, it's just what he does), and he even has to explain to ''Cyrus'' that he doesn't hate him for all he's done. But if you sell Pokémon in front of him...

* The long lasting feud between Zangoose and Seviper is so intense that the very sight of one another makes them feel nothing but rage, leading to an immediate battle. It's so bad that in horde battles as featured in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', if 4 Zangoose and a single Seviper are in the horde, the Zangoose would rather ''gang up to take down the Seviper before attacking your Pokémon''. This also applies when it's 4 Seviper and one Zangoose.

** Ash's other berserk button is if anyone harms/kidnaps/insults Pikachu. Cases in point: Pikachu got kidnapped by Hunter J and Ash gets very, VERY pissed off, eventually starting with jumping onto a moving car, then sneaking aboard J's ship with Jessie and James (who are also going to rescue Meowth), he gets in a fight with Lucario when it insults Pikachu in ''Lucario and the Mystery of Mew'', he rescues Pikachu and takes a Poison Tail from Seviper in the back to protect Pikachu, he attacks a machine to break Pikachu out in ''Mewtwo Strikes Back'' and [[http://www.filb.de/anime/eppics/dp/003/page/3 does a similar thing]] during the third Sinnoh episode. It goes for his other Pokémon as well.
*** While Pikachu is the earliest and most prominent example, Ash doesn't take ''any'' of his Pokemon being harmed well, even the ones who are going through a "I'm not listening to you" stage. Small wonder they all get the group BerserkButton mentioned below.



** He also hates it when someone insults his friends. When AlphaBitch Ursula in the Sinnoh series nastily taunts Dawn and calls her pathetic, for example, Ash is VERY quick to backsass Ursula and defend Dawn.
* If someone deliberately harms Ash, then EVERY every one of his Pokémon will pounce on you, ''hard''. The TeamRocket trio, being the ChewToy group that they are, managed to do such a thing just at the right moment that ''Charizard'' had finally learned to respect (and care for) his trainer (''Charizard Chills,'' episode 105). ''VERY OUCH'' for them.
** And just as ouch when they did it in front of his [[BroughtDownToNormal then-depowered]] Sceptile. The mon was so pissed off at them ''almost throwing Ash off their globe'' that it regained all of its power out of sheer hot-bloodness, rescued Ash and Pikachu and blasted TR like whoa.



** Threatening or hurting his other human companions will also not turn out well for whoever does it.
* Ash doesn't take kindly to other trainers mistreating Pokémon either. Case in point: in the early episode with A.J., Ash flew off the handle when he thought A.J. was beating up Sandshrew (in truth, he actually cared for his Pokémon).



* [[BewareTheNiceOnes Brock]] does NOT take kindly to trainers abandoning their Pokémon. Neither do Ash or Misty.



* Just try insulting Brock's or Misty's gym and see what happens.
** Misty won't stand for water type Pokémon in general getting insulted.
** Likewise insulting Norman or Petalburg Gym in front of May or Max.
* Meowth is not a pathetic Meowth and don't tell him so. The Meowth in boots in one Hoenn ep did so, and he was not pleased.
** Also, Meowth does not like his charm being lost/misplaced. It wasn't really lost in the ep where it disappeared, but he was ballistic the whole ep wanting it back. I wouldn't suggest stealing it.

* Let's not forget [[OhCrap Mewtwo's Berserk Button]]: [[HumansAreBastards Pe]][[HumansAreTheRealMonsters op]][[KillAllHumans le.]]



* Do not hurt/bother Togepi or you will face its friends' wrath.



** Don't kidnap or harm Green's grandpa or he will find you and use Porygon as a virus to destroy your circuitry, along with any of your predicted, inevitable outcomes.



** Lance triggers a similar response during his attempt at [[KillAllHumans genocide]]. The moral of this little story is that Yellow is slower to anger than just about everyone else on the planet, but once she's pissed, you call your Pokémon back, you turn one-hundred-and-eighty degrees, and you never stop running while there is breath in your body.
