!!The original Trio and their Pokémon

[[folder:Tropes that apply to all three of them]]
* AdaptationalBadass: They (and their Pokémon) are a ''lot'' more powerful and capable than their incarnations from the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} original timeline]].
** Ash, obviously, is the most notable of them; not only does he become at least as masterful in Aura as Sir Aaron was (though that does take a while), he learns how to understand Pokémon speech, catches Ho-Oh (at the latter's request), and solves most of the problems they came across the previous time with a lot less difficulty. And that's just the stuff that ISN'T SpoileredRotten.
** Misty establishes this throughout the story, especially the couple of times that she faces Ash in a serious battle; she nearly defeats him in Cerulean [[spoiler:and does defeat him in the Whirl Cup, [[StunnedSilence to everyone's astonishment]]]], and she manages to fight [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} Molly's]] superpowerful Unown-created Pokémon to more-or-less a draw. But it's cemented beyond any doubt when halfway through the Johto region, she receives a notice that she's up for consideration to replace ''[[spoiler:Lorelei of the Elite Four]]''. She took up the challenge, '''''and succeeded'''''. Even better, we don't even know which one she replaced [[spoiler:Lorelei, Agatha, ''and'' Lance all stepped down for various reasons, and thus three of the trainers that took the challenge (one being Misty, the other two being the canonical Karen and Will) were admitted into the group]]. And that's not even getting into her team.
** Brock is as skilled as ever, but it's shown most during the Orange Islands. In an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, Brock fought off a bunch of Unown... with a [[VideoGame/HalfLife crowbar]]. [[spoiler:That later results in him commencing a serious romance with Professor Ivy, which is still going even now]]. Again, not even getting into his team...though on the note of said team, a running joke is that he's a Rock-Type expert that only has a single Rock-Type (Onix having lost its Rock-Type when it evolved into Steelix, leaving only Geodude). He eventually relinquishes that title for saying he's an expert in unpredictability instead, [[spoiler:due to his Pokémon capable of using illusions, such as Ninetales and Stantler]].
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: All of them, due to Ash being a walking WeirdnessMagnet. People are shocked when things happen and Ash and his friends don't even bat an eye. To them, it might as well be a morning routine.
* SeenItAll: After seeing Legendaries and going through potentially world-breaking adventures in the original timeline, nothing surprises Ash and friends anymore. The fact that they don't move an eyelid to what's going on tends to shock those who aren't used to the sheer level of weirdness they go through.
* TrueCompanions: Ash, Misty, and Brock were pretty close friends in the original timeline, but they become even more so after Ash [[TimeTravel travels back through time]] and restores Misty and Brock's memories of him. Of course, the trope extends to the trio's other traveling companions, [[HonoraryTrueCompanion including the Rocket Trio]].

-----
* TheAce: Quickly becoming this, thanks to experience, foreknowledge, and natural talent.
* AdaptationalBadass: ''Far more so'' than his incarnation from the original anime.
* BloodMagic: How he can replicate Ghost-type attacks.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Ash's life is so bizarre that he (and most of his companions) doesn't even blink at things that are considered extraordinary to, well... everyone else.
* TheChosenOne: It's ''hereditary'', according to Sir Aaron's Lucario.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: For once, Ash's eccentricity is noted and lampshaded.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman[=/=]MySuitIsAlsoSuper: Sir Aaron's Aura Guardian outfit and equipment, when empowered with Ash's similar-resonating Aura, grant its wearer certain powers.
** CoolHat: Sir Aaron's hat, which not only is cool but grants the wearer the Dark-Type, thus making them [[NoSell immune]] to all psychic powers.
** TrickedOutShoes: His boots make him lighter, enabling him to [[SuperSpeed run faster]], [[InASingleBound jump higher]], and even [[WallCrawl walk on walls]].
** BadassCape: His cape allows for a steady recharge of aura, and will even [[LoyalPhlebotinum interfere with the aura of anyone who tries to steal it]].
** TrickedOutGloves: His jeweled gloves act as an aura focus, allowing greater precision and increasing his aura reserves.
** His pouch is basically a BagOfHolding. It's gotten to the point he needs ''shelving'' inside it.
** SimpleStaff[=/=]MagicStaff: Sir Aaron's, and now Ash's, basic WeaponOfChoice. [[spoiler: Combining it with Lugia and Ho-Oh's feathers turns it into his Key Stone.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Ash's amazing battle talent and ingenuity is very much noted, alongside his IdiotHero tendencies.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler: Secret Sword is a lot more Aura-intensive than most of his other moves; one use of it practically killed him.]]
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:His father died breaking a tidal wave that was threatening the residents of Pacifidlog]].
* DorkKnight: Incredibly strong sense of morals, a good fighter, friendly, and a bit of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, Ash certainly fits the bill. Bonus points for [[spoiler: being an actual knight]].
* TheDreaded:
** Is gradually becoming this after becoming Indigo League Champion. Comically, he's also this to gym leaders due to his gym-destroying reputation, with several point-blank refusing to battle him within their respective gyms. His return to Kanto to challenge the Battle Frontier sparked minor panic during a Gym Leader meeting, with their newest Gym Leader inquiring about getting some reinforced steel to help deal with the potential damage.
** Giovanni is willing to take on ''[[OlympusMons Mewtwo]]'', but not Ash. When Ash returned to his gym during the Battle Frontier arc so Max could challenge him for the Earth Badge, Giovanni had a Golurk on hand to teleport him away just in case he and Ash got off the wrong foot. He also immediately shifted his gaze away from Ash the moment he saw Pikachu's cheeks spark slightly.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Zigzagged. After becoming Indigo League Champion, Ash garners a lot of respect, and a lot of people ''do'' fear battling him. But his eccentric, borderline insane behavior, combined with his Pokémon's tendency to do the impossible[[note]]which is ''routine'' in Squirtle's case[[/note]], means they have issues taking him seriously.
* DungeonBypass: Ash tends to do this a lot, and the two main contributors to this tripe is his possession of various Pokémon (including the Legendaries), and his future knowledge. For example, in one of the Orange League gyms, one of the challenges is a race. While it's implied that you're supposed to use a water type, Ash instead uses his Pidgeot... which is capable of supersonic travel. [[ObviousRulePatch The Gym Leader in charge of said race vows to specifically require the use of a Water-type in the future]].
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Takes advantage of his Aura potential this time around. It allows him to restore his Pokémon's memories, making many of his earlier battles easier. It also allows him to communicate with ''all'' Pokémon, and use Pokémon attacks.
* FamedInStory: Actually won the Indigo League this time around, meaning his reputation is incredibly well-known. Although, said {{Cloudcuckoolander}} traits above mean that people have a hard time taking him seriously.
* FlatWhat: Gives one [[spoiler:in response to James' Moltres costume causing a chain of events that led to the Rocket Trio ''accidentally capturing a'' '''''real''''' ''Moltres'']].
* HeroicLineage: Is directly descended from Sir Aaron through his father's side.
* HumbleHero: Almost always acts like one, to the point that he absolutely refuses to use his [[FanNickname Legendary Big Three]] except on special occasions such as [[spoiler:'''''exhibition matches with the Elite Four''''']]. Ho-Oh eventually had to call him out on it, stating that while they ''get'' that he doesn't want to seem privileged, there are ''limits''.
** He does have a reason for doing this, though - he did lose a conference because of Tobias, who steamrolled other teams using a friggin' ''Darkrai'' and a Latios, and doesn't want to be like him at all.
** Ironically, when Ash seemingly ''isn't'' this, it's because he doesn't realize how bizarre and/or special the things that happen to him on a regular basis actually are. For example, Ash was calling out a Team Rocket Executive during the Lake of Rage Incident on forcibly evolving Pokémon, stating that evolving one wasn't that hard -- only for Brock to point out that it actually takes a normal Pokémon trainer ''years'' to make that happen.
* IdiotHero: He's more than capable as a Pokémon trainer, but outside of that, he can be rather ''dense''.
* IndyPloy: Very good at adjusting his battle strategy when things go south, and tends to teach his Pokemon new moves (or have them discover them themselves) ''during'' battles.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Can instigate these with a technique called Aura Purge.
* KungFuWizard: Due to his training in Aura, Ash can use Pokémon attacks, most of which falls into either this trope or FullContactMagic.
* LamePunReaction: In Chapter 2, right after Ash and Misty are visited by the Legendary Ho-oh, Misty notices that it left behind one of its feathers... and a bag of Sacred Ash. Misty notes the irony, prompting this reaction from Ash.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Both Ash and his father had NoSenseOfDirection, it seems.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: Gyms, in his case. Ash has accidentally destroyed (or at least badly damaged) several gyms in three out of four regions he's traveled in. Fortunately, after realizing the trend, he attempts to avert this, including reporting on radio that he doesn't mind having his gym battles outside. His record of damaged or destroyed gyms is:
** Kanto: Cerulean, Vermilion, Celadon, Fuchsia, Viridian.
*** Kanto Battle Frontier Facilities: Arena, Dome, Pike Tent.
** Orange Islands: Kumquat and Pummelo.
** Johto: Goldenrod, Cianwood and Olivine. The former two were also heavily damaged by their own gym leader's Pokémon. In addition, Blackthorn Gym was badly damaged by Raikou (who would be caught by Ash soon after), who had just earned his own Rising Badge before Ash even arrived.
** Hoenn: None. Ash has made it his goal to pass ''this'' gym challenge without breaking a single gym, and has pretty much succeeded. Though he did do significant damage to a playground while battling Norman, the outdoor battlefield while battling Tate and Liza, and the majority of damage done to the Sootopolis Gym was Wallace's doing.
*** Though given the fact that Ash's evolution aura caused the gym's Wailmer population to all spontaneously evolve and bring down a gym wall (after the battle and after Ash and Co. had left), there is some argument to saying he failed, even if Wallace admits he cannot link the incident back to Ash.
** Sinnoh: Oreburgh, Pastoria.
* MagicKnight: When he uses Pokémon attacks and breaks out his staff or sword.
* MissionFromGod: Sent back in time on the behalf of Arceus to prevent Cyrus from destroying reality.
* MyGreatestFailure: It's made pretty clear that he never really forgave himself for Latios' death...
** MyGreatestSecondChance: [[spoiler:...which makes his survival in the new timeline all the more sweeter.]]
* NoSenseOfDirection: If it wasn't for Dexter, with Ash leading them, he and his friends would get lost in totally different ways than they got lost the first time around.
* {{Omniglot}}: Thanks to Ash being an Aura user, he can talk with Pokémon.
* OrnamentalWeapon: Gets a ceremonial, but non-functional sword when he is knighted for saving the Togepi Kingdom. [[spoiler: Subverted as it actually becomes his focus for Sacred/Secret Sword, and later, ''an actual Honedge'']].
* PercussiveMaintenance: Does this to Dexter in Chapter 1 when it fails to register the Legendary Ho-Oh, in an attempt to restore its memories. It registers Ho-Oh... and reports that it has data on pretty much all Pokémon in existence up to this point... and then reveals himself to have become a fully functional AI.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: They call him "The Gym Destroyer" for a reason. Notably, the secondary challenge of the Blackthorn Gym is "overwhelming power". In order to sufficiently test Ash, Clair had to ''mega-evolve three Pokémon''. Ash not only won the match, he didn't lose a ''single'' Pokémon.
* PlotArmor: [[spoiler: Embodied in the form of his [[DeathIsNotPermanent Sacred Ash]]. However, there's only so much of it.]]
* RunningGag:
** Ever since Cerulean, Ash has been habitually destroying gyms, mostly unintentionally. Reached a point where his first two Johto League gym battles were done outside. And by the end of the third, Whitney had most certainly wished she had followed their examples (though one can easily argue that it was her Miltank that did most of the damage, even if Muk finished the building off).
*** When Ash reaches Hoenn, Norman asks him to try and win the Gym battles WITHOUT destroying the gyms! Ash treats it a bit as a SelfImposedChallenge.
** There's also the unexplainable thing that Pokémon around Ash have for evolving in spontaneous and sometimes inexplicable ways. With enough time, he can evolve anything. Professor Oak attempted to explain this away by saying that Ash's Aura potential makes this happen, but Ash counters that even ''before'' he had Aura this stuff ''kept happening''.
*** Comes to a head towards the end of his Johto adventures, where his last two gym battles and three of his Silver Conference battles had one of his opponent's Pokémon evolving. Both Ash and Pikachu are beginning to wonder if this is some karmic retribution for all the times Ash won battles when one of ''his'' Pokémon spontaneously evolved.
** One that comes up whenever he brings out a Legendary is people asking who he is in astonishment, followed by them accepting it easily because it's Ash.
** Also, Ash being a WeirdnessMagnet making Absols [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turn tail]] at the first sight of him due to their DangerSense.
** Ash's insistence that the Orange Islands count as a league despite what other people say.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: His entire purpose in this story is to go back in time and stop Cyrus from [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt recreating the world in his own image]].
* SuperEmpowering: The effect of giving anyone he was close to in the old timeline the memories and experiences of that timeline with a single touch.
* SuperSenses: His Aura Sight allows him to see the auras of humans and Pokémon, especially those he can remind and restore, [[XRayVision even through walls]].
* TransformationTrinket: Not for himself, but for his Pokémon - Sir Aaron's staff functions as a Key Stone, and he owns six Mega Stones (seven if Squirtle's artificial Squirtilite is intact), enabling some of his Pokémon to Mega Evolve.
* {{Troll}}: Sometimes.
* WalkOnWater: All the time, using Aura. It's gotten to the point where [[ButForMeItWasTuesday he doesn't even notice how strange this is.]] He's also taught Misty and several of his Pokémon to do it themselves.
* WalkingDisasterArea: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] many, many times. But what really sells it is when he encounters an Absol -- who promptly delivers a RapidFireNo and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere attempts to escape through the nearest window]], which, unfortunately for her, was closed and made of safety glass. It's so bad that Officer Jennys have started printing Ketchum Incident reporting slips ''just'' so their paperwork can handle all the crazy stuff Ash gets involved in on a shockingly regular basis. Said slips even have an attached form where one can list all the Legendary Pokémon that were a part of said incident.
-->'''Diane''': What now? What do we do after something like ''that'' happens?
-->'''Ash''': [[ButForMeItWasTuesday In my experience..., just keep going and look out for the next one]].
-->'''Diane''': In your experience? I know you've done some amazing things, but... you have a ''routine?''.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Whenever Ash is around, impossible things (and large-scale destruction) come with him. It eventually gets so bad that Officer Jennys have started printing Ketchum Incident reporting slips ''just'' so their paperwork can handle all the crazy stuff Ash gets involved in on a shockingly regular basis. It even created a RunningGag of making Absols [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turning tail]] with his ''mere presence''.
* WillfullyWeak: One of the reasons Ash doesn't use Legendaries in battle (unless they specifically requested for him to do so) is due to Tobias, who [[CurbStompBattle swept]] his Pokémon with only two Legendaries in the original timeline. Ash doesn't want to be the kind of guy who's arrogant enough to deprive his opponents of a proper chance to prove their worth. It's a sentiment that is shared by several of his friends as well.
* WouldHitAGirl: Had no qualms in punching Annie in the face to take her out.
* YouWereTryingTooHard: Apparently part of the reason Ash has NoSenseOfDirection is his tendency to overthink things, when he's not thinking about where he's going, he usually does fine.

[[folder:Ash's Pokémon]]
!!'''Tropes that apply to all (or several) of them'''
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: Each of them came back to the past with their canon power levels as of BW, and kept working on it.
* BadassCrew: ''All'' of them are this.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Ash is a NiceGuy; he is kind, loyal, and brave to the point of insanity (he confronts ''rampaging Legendaries'' regularly). His Pokémon know this first-hand, and this earns him their loyalty - particularly those he rescued from poachers, disasters, rampaging Pokémon, or just a [[{{Jerkass}} really bad or abusive trainer]].
* TheDreaded: Just like their trainer, several are feared for a variety of reasons.
** All legendaries by default, since they're...well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin legendary]].
** Pikachu, as Ash's starter and one of his most versatile Pokémon. It's not hard to be terrified of an adorable, pint-sized mouse when he can electrocute ground-types and palm-out stone rhinos several times his size.
** Charizard, whose raw power is comparable to Ash's legendaries. [[spoiler:At one point, he managed to overwhelm a legendary trio by himself]].
** Pidgeot, one of the fastest fliers in the world, and one that Lugia trusts to keep his Legendary Bird trio in line.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: He has a ''lot'' of Pokémon.
-->'''Ash''': I've got enough Pokémon that I have to work from a schedule.
-->'''Ivysaur''': You've got enough of us that we have to work out our own entertainment schedules.
** As of Chapter 261 the total is 50, counting the five Tauros individually [[spoiler:and 51 if Mawile's Tyrantum is included]]. And he owns at least one Pokémon of each type to boot, something ''none'' of his traveling companions or other friends has yet to accomplish. [[spoiler: It's up to 51 plus Tyrantum at the end of chapter 267.]]
* TheChosenMany: Since Ash is considered TheChosenOne by a lot of people and Pokémon [[TheChooserOfTheOne who have any say in it]], his Pokémon can be considered this.
* OlympusMons: Ash currently owns no less than [[spoiler: ten]] Legendaries from the first five generations (out of 48 species of them from that same time period).
* SecretArt: Six of his seven starters from Kanto, Johto and Hoenn know their respective type's Hyper Beam equivalent, which are exclusive to Starters - Charizard is revealed to have learned Blast Burn in the Charicific Valley (and is even ''improving'' it), Ivysaur, Meganium and Sceptile have all been shown using Frenzy Plant, and Squirtle and Totodile have both been shown using Hydro Cannon. The only exception is Quilava, who has yet (as of the end of the Battle Frontier arc) to use Blast Burn.
* SuperMode: Several of Ash's Pokémon are capable of Mega Evolution, which [[spoiler:Charizard, Pidgeot, Lucario, Heracross, Squirtle (via an artificial Mega Stone that breaks after one use), Latios, Latias, Absol, Mawile, Tyranitar, Sceptile, Houndoom and Glalie]] have all undergone at least once, though Ash only owns [[spoiler:seven - Charizardite X, Heracronite, Latiosite, Latiasite, Absolite, Sceptilite and Lucarionite (on indefinite loan from the Lucario Kingdom), plus Squirtle's self-made Squirtilite; the other five Mega Evolutions currently need either borrowed Mega Stones, the reality-warping powers of the Unown or a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind to enable the transformation]].
** [[spoiler: Keldeo can't Mega Evolve, but has access to Resolute Form.]]

!!Pikachu
-----
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: Zigzagged. After being BrainwashedAndCrazy and hurting Ash in the process, he became worried that he was too strong for his own good. But after [[spoiler: Ash nearly got killed saving Rayquaza from the two Primals]] and his [[spoiler: loss to Wallace's Greninja]], he becomes worried that he isn't strong ''enough'', which confuses him greatly.
* AlwaysAccurateAttack: Although Shock Wave is this by default, Pikachu has come up with many different variants (expanding dome, falling disc, etc.) of this attack to counter the many different ways a Pokémon can dodge. At last count, he had ''thirty-four''.
* AmplifierArtifact: His Light Ball, obtained when [[spoiler: Ash and Riolu Aura-channeled the energy of a Thunderstone back into itself to prevent Pikachu from evolving]]. Absorbing it into his body makes his cheeks turn Raichu-orange.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Got caught in a Dark Ball by the Vicious/Iron-Masked Marauder.]]
* CoolTeacher: As the Pokémon Ash has never taken off his team, Pikachu knows how to handle and interact with Pokémon of various temperaments, as shown when he is teaching Larvitar how to channel the Steel-typing via Iron Tail for him to learn Iron Head. But when he's trying to make a point, he can end up being a...
* DrillSergeantNasty: According to Sceptile and [[spoiler:Raikou]].
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability. This often is an issue if an opponent manages to [[PowerCopying copy]] it.
** Incidentally, this trope is how Pikachu wound up at the lab in the first place - Professor Oak caught him when he was trying to feed on the electricity from the lab's power cables.[[note]]This doubles as a ShoutOut to his counterpart in the manga ''Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu'', whom Ash found when he was gnawing on the wires under his house in order to eat the electricity.[[/note]]
* TheLeader: By default, as he is both Ash's longest-accompanying Pokémon and one of the strongest he has. The only ones who could possibly be more powerful than Pikachu on Ash's team are Charizard and any Legendaries.
* MagneticWeapons: He can and has used the scientific principles of railguns and coilguns in his attacks.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: When you're a 1'04" electric mouse that can Force Palm [[MusclesAreMeaningless huge stone rhinos and send them flying]] or simply [[ScissorsCutsRock electrocute them into submission]], can this really ''not'' apply?
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon of Mass Destruction]]: This Pikachu can electrocute ''Ground-types''. [[spoiler:Thus the major OhCrap faces when he got caught into a Dark Ball. The only Pokémon Ash had on hand at the time that could match Pikachu in pure power were Keldeo and Suicune, but Keldeo is significantly more inexperienced while Suicune was worn out (having only just been caught when the conflict started), and ''both'' were at a type disadvantage]].
* ScissorsCutsRock: I repeat, Pikachu ''can electrocute Ground-types''! [[spoiler: Dexter eventually figures out that's because he has a not-discovered-until-now Ability that allows him to do so. This Ability has been tentatively named Zappy, in reference to the Scrappy Ability that lets Normal-type moves hit Ghost-types.]]
* SignatureMove: [[ShockAndAwe Volt Crash]], an Electric-type Hyper Beam variation that impressed [[spoiler:Raikou so much that he wanted to lose to Ash just to learn it]]!
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: After accidentally coming into contact with a Thunderstone, Ash and Riolu manage to channel the evolution energy into his cheeks and back into the stone, giving him the stronger electric sacs of a Raichu and a new Light Ball while still remaining a Pikachu.]]

!!Butterfree
-----
* ActionDad: It's revealed in Chapter 150 that he has a number of children with his mate, putting him under this trope.
* OutOfFocus: Once he left to rejoin the other Butterfree he doesn't appear often.

!!Pidgeot
-----
* ActionGirl: And she will not let you forget it.
* BerserkButton: Pidgeot is female. Do not mistake her for a male.
* BlowYouAway: She's got at least a few wind-based moves, including [[spoiler: Aeroblast]].
* TheDreaded: The ''Shamouti Legendary Trio'' are scared of her.
* FrickinLaserBeams: [[spoiler:Aeroblast. See below]].
* HeroicLineage: Likely descended from Aaron's Pidgeot.
* InertiaIsACruelMistress: How No Guard works when [[spoiler: she Mega Evolves]]. Although her attacks are now fast enough that her targets can't dodge, she is also now fast enough that if she tries to dodge any of their attacks, even the slightest deviation of her flight plan could divert her miles out of the area before she could correct.
* LongRangeFighter: Her default fighting style is to stay far out of her opponent's range and blast away with impunity.
* StaringDownCthulhu: She battled the Shamouti Legendary Trio, despite them being, y'know, ''legendary''. ''And she won''.
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler:Lugia himself taught Pidgeot how to use his SignatureAttack: Aeroblast]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Has Mega Evolved, though initially only within Aura Purge mind-scapes. Professor Oak later temporarily borrows a Pidgeotite from someone so Ash can Mega Evolve her in the real world once, though she doesn't outright own one yet.]]
* SuperSpeed: She's capable of flying at Mach Three for hours on end. And with her Tailwind, she can slipstream-tow other Flying Pokémon along with her to the same speed. [[spoiler:Even ''the entire Charicific Valley'']].
* WorldTour: Once flew around the world.

!!Bulbasaur[[spoiler:/Ivysaur]]
-----
* TheGenericGuy: Points out that he is the only one of Ash's Pokémon not to have any real quirks.
* GeneticMemory: Has a ''lot'' of Egg Moves.
* OnlySaneMan: See directly below.
* TheReliableOne: Just like in canon, it is his supervision that keeps all of Ash's ranch roster mostly in line.
* TangledFamilyTree: Bulbasaur's widely varied move pool is a result of a convoluted amount of chain breeding (that according to WordOfGod may include ''any'' breedable Pokémon). It's not so much a tree as it is a "kudzu," according to him.
--> '''Bulbasaur''': I know of a Charmeleon, a Sableye, and a Skarmory in there somewhere. It's more of a family Kudzu...
* ThoseTwoGuys: Is friends with Squirtle.

!!Charizard
-----
* TheBigGuy: By far and away the strongest of Ash's Pokémon barring Legendaries, and even then he's still up there in power levels.
* BreathWeapon: Beyond the standard fire attacks, he uses an overcharged Blast Burn, fuel air bombs derived from Blast Burn, mouth-launched Boombursts, and Dragonbreath.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Downplayed; it's shown in a few of his battles that he's best suited for the Pokémon that can directly bring as much as or more raw power than him to the table, and WeakButSkilled opponents with a lot of tricks are just not something he's trained for. This is best exemplified in his matches with Casey's Rattata/Raticate, who managed to beat him [[spoiler: twice]]. Justified as that Raticate was specially trained for DavidVersusGoliath battles, ''especially'' against Ash's Charizard.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: By getting his tail-flame hot enough to flash-boil water, he's able to ''swim''. Albeit, not for very long.
* LoveHurts: In the previous timeline, he had a mate in the Charicific Valley. Unfortunately, her memories can't be restored, so from her perspective, he's a stranger who claims that they were in a relationship at one point. She's willing to give him a chance at least, but there's no guarantee that it'll work out.
** As of the Johto League, it seems to have worked out so far, as Charla has declared him her boyfriend in public.
* MultiformBalance: [[spoiler:What happens to him during the Spell of the Unown movie, where Ash's feelings, his staff, and Lugia and Ho-Oh's feathers combine to give him the ability to Mega-Evolve between his bulkier X-form and his more streamlined Y-form]].
* NukeEm: Knows Blast Burn, which is so powerful that he has to be explicitly ''ordered'' by Ash to use it, and can produce enough heat to achieve, for a split second, ''nuclear fusion''. It is outright said that the only Fire-type attack more powerful than Blast Burn is Victini's V-Create, which was used to obliterate Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In one attack each.
** Naturally, Ash and Charizard took the basic attack and created more powerful variants.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:His two Mega Forms, as stated above. Even exhausted and heavily injured, he still managed to ''overwhelm an entire Legendary Trio'', themselves empowered by the Unown]].
** [[spoiler:With regards to actual Mega Stones, Charla loans him her Charizardite Y on important occasions, and Ash eventually acquires a Charizardite X from Baron Alberto.]]

!!Squirtle
-----
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Once he learns of Mega Evolution, he devotes most of his time to trying to create a Mega Stone that works for him, even though everyone else points out that only fully-evolved Pokémon can Mega Evolve, and is ridiculed every time he works on the "Squirtilite". [[spoiler:Come the battle with Clair, and ''it actually works'']]. It's just as crazy as it sounds.
** On a smaller note not every one of Squirtle's plans involve over-the-top antics. One plan of his was to defrost a frozen Grass type using Scald slowly to gently unfreeze it. Misty was suprised.
* DeathOrGloryAttack: In earlier chapters, his Horn Drill Breaker was this, given that it practically knocked him out whenever he used it. He eventually grows tough enough to survive the recoil - more or less.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]].
** This has the effect of making Squirtle the living embodiment of CrazyAwesome. Whenever he does anything, massive water explosions are soon to follow.
* {{Fanboy}}: He's a huge ''Gurren Lagann'' fanboy, to the point where his entire fighting style is built around Gurren Lagann. Especially when it comes to [[BeyondTheImpossible doing the impossible]].
* [[TheFriendNobodyLikes The Pokémon Nobody Likes]]: Subtle, but Squirtle's over-the-top personality has not made him popular among some of Ash's friends, like Misty and Professor Oak.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Can imbue his sunglasses with Aura to use them as a sword.
* LargeHam: You read the part about him being Kamina with a shell, right?
* {{Otaku}}: His species's [[PlanetOfHats hat]], which he wears so very proudly.
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon Of Mass Destruction]]: He always ends up destroying the battlefield.
** An example is the battle with Molly, he condenses ''several billion gallons of water'' into a droplet the size of a finger nail then hits Vaporeon with it, Ash who is several hundred meters above the fight has to anchor himself with Aura because of the backlash.
* PlanetOfHats: Like any member of his species, Squirtle is a massive {{fanboy}} of his chosen fandom: Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Somehow managed to create a Mega Stone that works and Mega Evolve into Mega Squirtle. That's right, Squirtle ''made his own Super Mode''.]]
* ThisIsADrill: [[spoiler:Mega Squirtle has two drills made of water on his wrists]]. Also tends to emulate the Giga Drill Break and any variation of said Giga Drill Break when he can.
* ThoseTwoGuys: His friendship with Bulbasaur[[spoiler:/Ivysaur]] echoes this trope.

!!Dexter (Porygon/[[spoiler:[=Porygon2=]]][[spoiler:/Porygon-Z]])
-----
* BeamSpam: When in battle Dexter tends to let the Charge Beams and Signal Beams fly.
* DoAnythingRobot: Along with his original function as a Pokédex, he can also make video-calls, [[CommutingOnABus transmit Ash's other Pokémon directly to him in the field]], perform GPS functions, receive mail, etc.
* FriendlySniper: When Dexter does battle he often does it at a distance.
* HollywoodHacking: Well, he is a Porgyon, so it's kinda part of his programming.
* OddNameOut: The only one of Ash's Pokémon to have a nickname.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Uses Sharpen to reconfigure his body into different shapes best suited for attack or defense.
* TheSmartGuy: Easily the most intelligent of Ash's Pokémon. Justified as he is a computer.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Dexter becoming a Porygon basically saves the line from being {{Exiled From Continuity}}. It is even noted at the start of the story that the only two Kanto-to-Sinnoh Pokémon Ash hadn't seen yet were [=Porygon2=] ([[spoiler:at least until May's own Porygon evolves]]) and Porygon-Z. [[spoiler: Dexter evolves into the latter in the Sky Warrior event when hacking the Megarig]].
* SquishyWizard: He shows traits of this. In the battles where he doesn't outright win, what usually takes him and his projector down is, as he states, "blunt physical trauma".
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Evolves in the MMP arc from interfacing with the Mirage system. Then he evolves again during the events of ''Giratina and the Sky Warrior'']].

!!Riolu/[[spoiler:Lucario]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: Was the Riolu that Ash rescued from Hunter J in the previous timeline.
* BlowYouAway: Can recreate [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma's]] SignatureMove, the Flying Dragon Uppercut (Hiryu Shoten Ha), by using Fire Punch or Ice Punch against Ice-types or Fire-types to create the spiral of opposing temperatures.
* DeadpanSnarker: A prominent trait of his personality after his evolution.
* FastballSpecial: Knows Fling. Often, instead of items, he ends up throwing other Pokémon (or people). Usually Pikachu, much to the latter's annoyance.
* MagicMissileStorm: Developed a version of Aura Sphere that turns it into several smaller seeker spheres a la Macross.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Is loaned a Lucarionite by the Lucario Kingdom during the Mystery of Mew movie.]]
* TakingTheBullet: During the ''Power of One'' arc, he jumps in front of Ash to protect him from a Toxic shot by [[spoiler:J's Drapion. This act is what ''finally'' causes him to evolve, and the author admits that this is what he intended his evolution to be for a while]].
* WalkOnWater: To the point that he can surfboard - without the board. It's practically his hobby.
* WaveMotionGun: Is capable of using Aura Storm, his ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' Final Smash.
* WolverineClaws: Metal Claw, like its canon use. Goes into full BladeBelowTheShoulder when he adds [[spoiler:Sacred Sword]].

!!Kingler
-----
* MakingASplash: He's the underwater battle specialist of Ash's Pokémon; his first moves are usually dedicated to flooding the area to set up Crabhammer - underwater, the attack is based off the RealLife ''pistol shrimp''.
* OnlySaneMan: It may be due to being OutOfFocus, but it seems that Kingler is probably [[spoiler:(not counting Ivysaur)]] the sanest out of all of Ash's current Pokémon. His exchange with Primeape really showcased it.
* PowerPincers: Oh yes, since he fires most of his attacks from them - including ''Hyper Beam''.
* UnfazedEveryman: His personality; Professor Oak said that he's the best-behaved of Ash's Pokémon, and he doesn't bat an eyelash at the many outlandish things the others get involved with (not that he has any).

!!Primeape
-----
* DeathOrGloryAttack: Master Blow, the ultimate technique of his art, is a single punch ''thrown at the speed of sound'' and pretty much a OneHitKO. The drawbacks are...
--> '''Ivysaur:''' Whoa! What happened to you?!
--> '''Primeape:''' I just used up as much energy as most Pokémon do in a half-hour battle in about a second, I'm going to need three days of rest, and I think I broke my hand. Take it from me: the sound barrier is ''not'' your friend, at least not when you break it.
* FantasticFightingStyle: He developed the move Close Combat into an entire martial art.
* {{Homage}}: Said art is basically the ''Coup De Vitesse'' from Literature/HonorHarrington.
* FragileSpeedster: His speed is ''insane'', but, like in the games, he's not very durable. He's fast enough that Assurance counts him as his own partner.
* GlassCannon: His damage output is ''insane'', but, like in the games, he's not very durable. He makes up for it by means of using [[FantasticFightingStyle the martial art he developed]] to beat his opponent into a pulp before they get the chance to attack.
* TheGlovesComeOff: Often takes off his boxing gloves mid-fight so he can hit a lot harder.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: His raison d'être. If it isn't his martial art, it's a devastating infinite chain of Assurance[[note]]A move that is stronger if your partner was just hit, but he's [[SuperSpeed fast enough to be his own partner]][[/note]] that allows him to hit anything until it falls over. He also knows Thrash and Outrage, which are this trope in Move form.
* OutOfFocus: Doesn't show up much.
* RealMenWearPink: Does ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) as a hobby. It's to conserve his anger for the majority of the week.
* UnstoppableRage: Anything new here? No.
** ''Especially'' when Anger Point activates. Or if he's using Outrage.

!!Muk
-----
* BeamSpam: Hoo boy, yes. This is basically his whole style.
* CripplingOverspecialization: He now has trouble trying ''not'' to do a BeamSpam of moves at once, which is a problem when faced with a foe that requires a specific attack type or certain move to defeat, when his moves mess with each other, or when the situation calls for precision instead of power. He's starting to improve, but it's still an issue.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Cookie Monster from ''Series/SesameStreet''. The aforementioned event below was a result of him mistaking Oak's [=TMs=] for cookies and consuming most of them.
* HiddenDepths: Would you expect him to be a connoisseur of cheese?
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon Of Mass Destruction]]: When you can literally break the Pokémon move rules and launch off ''twenty different moves '''at the same time''''', you are this. No questions asked.
-->Muk opened his mouth, and then all Weavile knew was pain.
* RunningGag: Whenever he attacks, it's always multiple moves at the same time.

!!Tauros x5/''The Bull-Dozer''
-----
* CounterAttack: One of them knows Counter.
* DrawingStraws: What Ash using any Tauros boils down to. It's the luck of the draw for anything they know; one of his Tauros even know ''Rain Dance''.
* ElementalPowers: Between the five of them, their movesets cover an impressive variety of types, including [[PlayingWithFire Fire Blast]], [[MakingASplash Rain Dance and Surf]], [[ShockAndAwe Wild Charge]], [[DishingOutDirt Fissure and Earthquake]], [[ExtraOreDinary Iron Head and Iron Tail]], [[CastingAShadow Payback]] and [[ThePowerOfTheSun Solar]][[GreenThumb beam]].
* FoeTossingCharge[=/=]CrushParade: Thanks to Squirtle's CrazyAwesome tactics, their Outrage-enhanced Bull-Dozer formation boils down to this.
* ALoadOfBull: Professor Oak was on the verge of crying when he heard he had to take care of five Tauros, only to quickly change his tune when Dexter mentioned that it was originally ''thirty''.
* WalkOnWater: At least one of them knows how to do this via Aura.

!!Lapras
-----
* AntiAir: A few of his battles, like against Drake's Dragonite and Clair's Flygon, have boiled down to this.
* OutOfFocus: Ever since the Orange Islands, Lapras tends to be off-screen with the other Lapras.

!!Snorlax
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: One of Ash's strongest Pokémon, but outside of a battle he's frequently napping. To be fair, he ''is'' a Snorlax...
** Primeape also says that he's very wise as well, though getting any advice while he's asleep is a puzzle.
* EyeBeams: The form that his Hyper Beam takes, unlike the BreathWeapon that it was in canon.
* TheStoic: He doesn't talk much, even when he's in battle.
* TheVoiceless: Has sometimes talked without actually making any sounds. Primeape says it's Sleep Talk.

!!Heracross
-----
* ArmCannon: [[spoiler:In his Mega Evolution, this is what comes out of him using either Rock Blast, [[KiAttacks Focus Blast and Aura Sphere]]. Spectators have actively compared him to a {{mecha}}.]]
* MoreDakka: The result of Pin Missile [[spoiler: in his Mega Evolution]].
* NoSell: Was able to negate being frozen due to [[spoiler:Mega Heracross producing high temperatures of body heat]].
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Knows Arm Thrust, which is this [[spoiler:in his Mega Evolution]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:After Chuck's Gym Battle, he gives Ash a piece of Heracronite, allowing Heracross to Mega-Evolve]].

!!Bayleef[[spoiler:/Meganium]]
-----
* ActionGirl: Even though she's a healer and a girl, she can battle with the best of them.
* ActionMom: Is now a mother to a Chikorita as of the [[spoiler:Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon]] event.
* BattleCouple: Alongside Sceptile.
* CombatMedic: While her talents gear more towards healing, that doesn't make her any less dangerous in a fight.
* LoveHurts: After Ash finally gets the fact that Bayleef has a crush on him through his skull, he gently turns her down. She admits that she had a feeling that was the case, but she still cares for him.
* OnlySaneMan: And she knows it.
--> '''[[spoiler: Suicune:]]''' Do you ever feel like you're the only sane one?
--> '''Meganium:''' All the time...
* ShipTease: With Ash's Sceptile. Frequently becoming WeAreNotAnItem denials, which are fooling no-one.
** [[spoiler: They are revealed to have finally gotten together and [[BabiesEverAfter had a Chikorita egg]] about a month before chapter 193.]]
* WhiteMage: Primarily the healer of the team.
** Her plant-reviving breath has come in handy several times on their journey.

!!Quilava
-----
* ActionGirl: Revealed to be female in this story, and is a skilled fighter.
* {{Expy}}: Her fighting style combines Flame Wheel and Aerial Ace. The result is similar to [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic's Homing Attack]].
* {{Fangirl}}: Of Franchise/SailorMoon. Which was introduced to her by a [[{{Otaku}} Wartortle]]. Thankfully she does not go overboard with her fandom like Squirtle or that Wartortle.
* [[InTheNameOfTheMoon In The Name Of The Sun]]: Gives a short speech when she [[spoiler:lands the final blow against Suicune, giving Ash the opening he needed to catch her]].
** Gives another one during one of Ash's Silver Conference matches. Both Ash and Pikachu are panicked that they've got another Squirtle, but she was just {{Troll}}ing them.

!!Totodile
-----
* DanceBattler: Will take any excuse to dance.
* {{Keet}}: He's incredibly energetic.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Don't take his unevolved status lightly; this kid has held his own against Legendaries.
* TagalongKid: His cheerful, playful attitude suggests that he's one of the younger members of the team, even though he's gained several years worth of memories and experience. Best shown when he's playing tag with [[spoiler: Mawile]].

!!Noctowl
-----
* MasterOfIllusion: Ash makes frequent use of his illusionary skills during battle.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: His characterization. Interestingly, it's not even his real accent or personality - it's an act he puts on because he likes it.

!!Houndour/Houndoom
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally appeared in an early episode of Johto, and here joins Ash's team.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Beat Up either takes the form of this, or has the duplicates turn into copies of his party members.
* FaceOfAThug: He's friendly and sociable enough, but still has the appearance of a HellHound.
* IOweYouMyLife: The reason why he decided to journey with Ash. He doesn't regret it at all.
* TagalongKid: PlayedWith. He's one of the younger Pokémon in Ash's group but he pulls his weight and is welcomed into the fold with open arms.

!![[spoiler:Ho-Oh]]
-----
* AnswersToTheNameOfGod: After [[spoiler: saving Forrest from the King of PokéAtlantis]], Flint thanks the gods that his son is safe. He accepts his thanks.
* BadassBoast: When facing the entirety of the Phantom Pirates:
--> '''[[spoiler: Ho-Oh]]:''' I have decided you qualify as a storm. I would suggest you land, or I will end you- as is my duty.
* CallToAdventure: Inverted. As a [[spoiler: Legendary Pokémon]], he's always prepared to help preserve the world, and being with Ash would help him directly handle many of those threats... if only Ash would remember to have him on-hand at the time. In other words, he's always waiting for the Call, but the Caller (Ash) keeps forgetting to make it.
** He eventually gets sick of it and decides to join Ash's on-hand roster full-time until the Call is made once again (specifically until the Temple of the Sea).
* GeoEffects: Knows Weather Ball, and a whole host of [[WeatherManipulation weather-inducing moves]] to make full use of it.
** One of his Ash-taught techniques is to create an artificial thermal, to gain an instant height advantage.
** Can even combo it alongside attacks that aren't precisely "weather", like Ominous Wind.
* NitroBoost: Has figured out how to create a ramjet.
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: Taught Misty's Togekiss how to use Sacred Fire. He taught it to Entei as well during the Hoenn arc.]]
* WaveMotionGun: What else can you call condensing a whole storm into a single Weather Ball?

!![[spoiler:Mewtwo]]
The world's strongest Pokémon.
-----
* BadassBoast: When he says he's the world's most powerful Pokémon, ''he means it''.
* TheComicallySerious: Complains whenever people or Pokémon start spoiling his "dignified" countenance.
* BulletHell: Shadow Sweep, or how he uses Shadow Ball to effectively catch hyper-evasive Ghost-types.
* CommutingOnABus: As part of Ash's "Legendary Big Three", he isn't part of the main team - rather, he was caught to prevent anyone unsavory from catching him and using him for less-than-admirable aims. He is still, however, at Ash's call for emergencies and/or other big occasions, [[spoiler:such as exhibition matches with the Elite Four]].
* GeneticMemory: [[spoiler:He occasionally gets a flash of memory from the Mew whose DNA was used to create him.]]
* InstantExpert: Became an expert in orbital mechanics in two days, from a textbook, [[spoiler: enough that he can set a piece of Millennium Comet in Lissajous orbit around the moon.]]
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: In his quest to find a purpose in life, he's done a lot of things. Special effects artist, actor, author, spacecraft launch assistance, business owner, astronaut...
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Pretty much his thing. As the above trope notes, ''he's'' the reason none of the natural disasters and assorted chaos from the movie plots have [[ThereAreNoGlobalConsequences devastating effects.]]
* RealityWarper: Is even better than the Unown at it. He makes their illusionary legendary beasts ''real''. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And shiny.]]
* [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Most Powerful Pokémon]]: And he will not let you forget it. Dexter outright states that the only other Pokémon who could outmatch him in pure power is ''Arceus'', and Arceus only beats him because of the ''millennia'' he's had to refine his power. With Arceus indisposed at the moment, he is this by default.
** [[spoiler: In the "present-bubble", ''Arceus himself'' admits that Mewtwo (or at least his Mega-Evolutions) could give him a run for his money.]]
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Is really, really good at this, even relative to the rest of his abilities. Casual mass teleportation into interplanetary space and mass teleport-arrests are things he does.
* UnskilledButStrong: Compared to other Legendaries, many of which have had centuries, if not ''longer'', to develop their powers, he's incredibly powerful, but inexperienced. [[spoiler:This is his argument to Rayquaza as to why he should still be considered the [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Most Powerful Pokémon]] after the Scuffle of Legends, Rayquaza has been dealing with Groudon and Kyogre ''far'' longer than he has.]]

!![[spoiler:Lugia]]
-----
* ArcWelding: [[spoiler: He's the Lugia of the second movie, and the father of Silver, the baby Lugia of the Johto period.]]
* DidntThinkThisThrough: [[spoiler: Offered to watch over Altomere for the Eon Pokemon on Ash's Team when they wanted to spend some time with him, but failed to realize that this would result in him being stuck in the garden the entire time due to his size and lack of illusion abilities]].
* PapaWolf: Don't mess with his son [[spoiler:Silver]]. Just... don't.
* {{Roboteching}}: [[spoiler: Manages, with Ash's help, to bend his Aeroblast and Twister attacks however he wants.]]
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: Taught Ash's Pidgeot how to use Aeroblast.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: His opinion of [[spoiler: the three legendary birds of Shamouti.]] Hard to blame him.
--> '''[[spoiler: Lugia:]]''' My son is more mature than you! ''My son!''
--> '''[[spoiler: Articuno:]]''' [[spoiler: Silver?!]] But he's only three years old!
--> '''[[spoiler: Lugia:]]''' [[DeadpanSnarker My point exactly.]]

!![[spoiler:Keldeo]]
A Unovan Pokémon that meets Ash partway through his Johto Journey, and after talking to him, decides to temporarily travel with him.
-----
* BadassAdorable: He's definitely aware of being the latter part, which he uses to his advantage to get souvenir photos of his journey [[spoiler:with the other Swords of Justice]]; he knows that any pictures he poses for will end up on the Internet, which he can later search for at his leisure. He also sold pictures of himself to get money for their travels.
* CommutingOnABus: He sometimes briefly returns to the group after the battle with Norman, usually via [[spoiler:Mewtwo]]'s teleportation skills.
* [[spoiler: CoolSword: Can combine [[AnIcePerson Ice attacks]] into his Secret Sword and thus create an Ice Sword move, which he can also fire thanks to the below SwordBeam technique]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appeared four regions before his canon debut.
* GuestStarPartyMember: He explicitly states he'll stay on Ash's team for roughly one year. He finally returns to Unova after winning the Balance Badge from Norman.
* MakingASplash: He's a Water-type.
* NotQuiteFlight: One of his signature moves is to use Hydro Pump from his hooves as jump jets.
* SwordBeam: [[spoiler:What happens when he gets Secret Sword and Aura Sphere mixed up.]]
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: His Resolute Form]].

!![[spoiler:Suicune]]
-----
* FreudianTrio: The Ego to [[spoiler:Entei's Superego and Raikou's Id.]]
* OutNumberedSibling: [[spoiler:Entei and Raikou were created to be her brothers]].
* WalkOnWater: Not only ''walk'', but ''run''.
* WomenAreWiser: [[spoiler:Definitely true when compared to Raikou. With Entei it's a bit harder to tell.]]

!![[spoiler:Entei]]
-----
* BerserkButton: Gets mad when anyone negates his Sunny Day, [[spoiler: thanks to Misty denying it as much as she could during her match with him.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: Exploited when he ''uses'' Lava Plume, but ''says'' Eruption, [[spoiler: to trick Ash into giving up on capturing him early.]]
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: Shows shades of this. During his first match with Ash, Entei strikes a powerful blow to Ash's entire team with Eruption. In reality, he actually used Lava Plume and simply called his attack the wrong name, to make it seem like he was more healthy than he was (Eruption gets more powerful the more HP one has). It worked and tricked Ash into surrendering early]].
* FreudianTrio: The Superego to [[spoiler:Suicune's Ego and Raikou's Id.]]
* GreenAroundTheGills: More than a few people that he has given a ride to have ended up this way.
* HairDecorations: Has more than once ended up with ribbons and bows in his mane, [[NeverLiveItDown much to his chagrin.]]
* WalkOnWater: [[spoiler: Entei can't actually walk on water, but he can run across it like his sister and brother can.]]

!!Donphan
-----
* GoombaStomp: One of Ash's new tactics for him is to combo Rollout, then Bounce, [[ShockwaveStomp and finally Earthquake/Magnitude]] on the way down, ''right on his target's head''.
** Goes into DeathFromAbove levels during his battle with Raikou, where Pidgeot helped carry him high enough to deal some real damage.

!!Mawile
A Pokémon Ash did not have in the original timeline. He received the egg as a prize for the Pokémon skateboard race in the place of Donphan's, having spotted the latter's egg earlier and, unintentionally, '''Reminded''' it on the spot (necessitating the need for an alternate egg as a prize).
-----
* BreakTheCutie: A downplayed example: she realizes the world isn't a very nice place when she meets a family of Mawile who are nasty to her friend [[spoiler:Sliggoo]] [[FantasticRacism for no other reason than for what he is.]] Their meanness almost brings her to tears.
* CheerfulChild: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as she only just hatched.
* TheDreaded: PlayedForLaughs. Considering Ash is getting [[PersonOfMassDestruction a very strong]] [[LivingLegend reputation]], this [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Fairy-type]] Pokémon was born while Ash was in the Dragon Holy Land causing dragons everywhere to panic seconds after she was born.
-->'''Dragonite''': (false calm) Ash Ketchum. Has. A Fairy Type.
-->'''Dragalge''': And it's even [[spoiler: [[NoSell immune to Poison]]]]?
-->'''Gabite''': (arrived at a decision) We're all doomed.
-->'''Flygon''': Now, don't worry. This might not be as bad as-
** The first action she made after hatching? Demonstrate she knows [[AnIcePerson Ice Fang]] as an egg move.
--->'''Flygon:''' It knows Ice Fang! Run!
** For her part, Mawile doesn't understand the reactions; she thinks Dragon-types are cool!
* InsistentTerminology: Insists that Larvitar is this, even though he's had [[TimeyWimeyBall three or so years of future memories restored.]]
-->"You hatched after me, you're a little brother! That's maths!"
* KillerRabbit: She is aware of how cute she is, and exploits it with a ruthlessness more typical of Dark-types. This is, according to the games, a ''[[InvokedTrope racial trait]]''. [[SeenItAll Norman]] also [[LampshadeHanging mentions how most rookies make the mistake of lowering their guards]] when seeing one for the first time. [[NiceGirl She is, however, honestly very nice and sweet outside of battle.]]
** She then learns to plan and to give tactical advice, as well as thinking up alternative uses of Moves to obtain an advantage - often on the fly. In essence, she is becoming like her trainer, making the previously-mentioned panic of an entire valley's worth of dragons entirely justified.
* [[LikeASonToMe Like a Daughter to Me]]: Subverted. When she Mega Evolves, Ash notes that while it wouldn't be accurate to call her a daughter, she is a little like one. Not to mention the fact that she seems to be [[ParentalSubstitute deliberately modeling herself]] after Ash.
* LittleMissBadass: What else are you when you can [[CurbStompBattle one-shot]] your (albeit weakened) opponent in your very first battle?
** It says a lot that when she wanders off on her own during a [[ZombieApocalypse mass Fossil Revival]] in Sinnoh, no one doubts that she can handle herself, and she manages to calm a Tyrunt down all on her own.
* LongList: Apparently has a checklist of Pokemon she's helped achieve NotQuiteFlight.
* ManOfKryptonite: Why she's TheDreaded to Dragon types, she's not only a Fairy-type that's immune to poison, but she has an Ice-type move as an Egg Move.
* NotQuiteFlight: [[spoiler: Uses Flamethrower in her Mega-Evolution as rocket propulsion.]] Her hobby is to think up ways for Ash's other Pokemon to fly, even if they can't.
** While not [[spoiler: Mega-Evolved]], she can use a homemade glider with a single Flamethrower for propulsion.
** [[spoiler: When Quilava does this, she actually shows that she has a list]]
* OriginalCharacter: Ash didn't have her in canon.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Knows Play Rough. And even aside from that, [[spoiler: her Mega-Evolution has Huge Power]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: As per expectation of her species.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Borrows a Mega Stone in 152 and uses it to Mega Evolve.]]
* SuperStrength: [[spoiler: Mega Evolving grants her the ability Huge Power.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Is the latter for all of her fully-evolved playmates, [[spoiler: Tyranitar]], [[spoiler: Goodra]], and [[spoiler: Tyrantrum]].
* UseYourHead: Knows Iron Head, thanks to Tracey's Scizor and [[spoiler:Raikou]].

!![[spoiler:Raikou]]
-----
* BoisterousBruiser: Is easily the most bombastic out of his siblings.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[spoiler:By far the strangest member of the Legendary Beasts]].
* DropTheHammer: Can (somehow) use Wood Hammer by swinging the signs he carries around as a weapon.
* DishingOutDirt: Learned Dig.
* FreudianTrio: The Id to [[spoiler:Suicune's Ego and Entei's Superego]]
* ImprovisedWeapon: His signs, which can be used as Wood Hammer. [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Somehow]].
** Well, they ARE made of wood...
* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:He decides to do all the Johto gyms solo to prove to Ash that he wouldn't hold back the next time they fought... which others pointed out wouldn't matter, as he could theoretically ''still'' hold back the next time they fought.]]
* SelfImposedChallenge: The reason why he even decided to [[spoiler: solo Johto's gyms is so he could prove to Ash that he can give him a good fight.]]
* TalkingWithSigns: How he communicates with those who do not speak Pokémon.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Noodles.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Raikou decided that the only way to prove to Ash that he was going to give his all during his next challenge was to get the eight badges of Johto. He then proceeds to solo the Johto gym challenge, earning the following: Zephyr Badge (083), Hive Badge (offscreen - identified in 086), Plain Badge (086), Fog Badge (087), Storm Badge (092), Mineral Badge (096; offscreen), Glacier Badge (096), Rising Badge (097).]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Is called out by his sister for throwing the fight against Ash, all for the purpose of learning Volt Crash from Pikachu.

!![[spoiler:Latios]]
-----
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler: Luster Purge. Unlike most other legendaries, Latios]] can't turn the power of his signature move down. Unfortunately, it's so powerful than it can't be used safely if there's a risk of it missing and hitting anything important, and against most opponents it can't be used without risking seriously injuring them.
* CommutingOnABus: [[spoiler: So at least one of the Latis is at Altomare at all times]].
* ShipTease: With [[spoiler: another Latias]] belonging to a Nurse Joy inspector.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:In [[Anime/PokemonHeroes the original timeline]] he pulled a HeroicSacrifice to save Altomare from a tidal wave. Now thanks to Mewtwo, Latias will never be without her brother]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: His Mega Stone was found in the DMA, and his bond with Bianca lets him Mega Evolve when he's not with Ash.]]
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler: Can sustain Mach 4 with passengers when Mega Evolved.]]
* WaveMotionGun: [[spoiler: Luster Purge. Shoots through 20 feet of stone when first used by an untrained, exhausted Latios.]]

!![[spoiler:Latias]]
-----
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler: Mist Ball. Unlike most other legendaries, Latias]] can't turn the power of her signature move down. Unfortunately, it's so powerful than it can't be used safely if there's a risk of it missing and hitting anything important, and against most opponents it can't be used without risking seriously injuring them.
* BoringButPractical: [[spoiler: Mist Ball]], at least in the visual looks department. Not much flash from a simple ball of white fluff, but it damn hurts when it goes off.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Shows a bit of this in chapter 106.
* CommutingOnABus: [[spoiler: Slated for this alongside her brother, but she's the one who is going with Ash first]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Her Mega Stone was found in the DMA, and her bond with Bianca lets her Mega Evolve when she's not with Ash.]]
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler: Can sustain Mach 4 with passengers when Mega Evolved.]]

!!Larvitar[[spoiler:/Pupitar/Tyranitar]]
-----
* BigLittleBrother: Is this to Mawile, no matter how much he argues the point. [[spoiler: Even/Especially after his double evolution.]]
* BreathWeapon: [[spoiler:Hyper Beam as a Tyranitar, reminiscent of his [[{{Franchise/Godzilla}} inspiration]].]]
* HowDoIShotWeb: [[spoiler:After he evolves into Pupitar during the Rustboro Gym match, he finds movement a problem as a limbless rock that moves via jet propulsion. Gets even worse after his second evolution into Tyranitar, as he finds his new body so unwieldy that he can't even walk without overbalancing. See RequiredSecondaryPowers below.]]
** He ''does'' eventually get the hang of it by the time Ash starts the Battle Frontier.
* InsistentTerminology: On the receiving end as [[spoiler:Mawile]] insists that since he hatched after her, he's her little brother, even though his restored memories technically imply the opposite.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Borrows a Tyranitarite during the [[Anime/PokemonDestinyDeoxys LaRousse City events.]]]]
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: [[spoiler: Apparently, the reason Tyranitars can walk and move quickly is a combination of hollow bones and an internal pneumatic system, that must be practiced while as a Pupitar. But since Larvitar was only a Pupitar for a minute or so, he doesn't have the practice at using said pneumatic system, meaning that even just nodding causes him to overbalance.]]

!!Swellow
-----
* CloseRangeCombatant: At least when compared to Pidgeot, specifically in HitAndRunTactics.
* {{Expy}}: Her flying skills, {{Fangirl}}-ness to the more experienced Pidgeot and overall excitable, [[{{Tomboy}} rough-and-tumble attitude]] makes her one to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]].
** And she can even pull off the Buccaneer Blaze [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome offscreen]].
* {{Fangirl}}: Is one towards Ash's Pidgeot. Their first meeting mostly consists about her {{Squee}}ing [[spoiler: about Pidgeot learning Aeroblast from [[OlympusMons Lugia]]]].
* FightOffTheKryptonite: Swellow is highly resistant to Electric-Type moves, as in canon. It's likely that she has some Ability that allows this, like with Pikachu and "Zappy".
* MakeMeWannaShout: Knows Boomburst.

!!Sceptile
-----
* ActionDad: Is now a father to a Chikorita as of the [[spoiler:Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon]] event.
* BattleCouple: Alongside Meganium.
* BewareMyStingerTail: His tail is already heavy enough, [[spoiler: but it can [[{{BFG}} launch like a missile]] when he is Mega Evolved]].
* GeneticMemory: His son inherited his [[spoiler:Sacred Sword]] as an Egg Move.
* LaserBlade: Leaf Blade, natch, as well as [[spoiler: Sacred Sword]].
* ShipTease: With Ash's Meganium [[spoiler:née Bayleef]]. Frequently becoming WeAreNotAnItem denials, [[EveryoneCanSeeIt which are fooling no-one.]]
** [[spoiler: Eventually, [[RelationshipUpgrade even he can't deny it either.]]]]
** [[spoiler: They are revealed to have finally gotten together about a month before chapter 193.]]
* SwordBeam: Thanks to [[spoiler: Keldeo's]] tutelage, he can now perform this.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Team Rocket gives Ash Sceptilite from their armory in exchange for the Audinite.]]
* YouRemindMeOfX: Mentions that Ash's Meganium reminds him of the Meganium [[LoveHurts who broke his heart]].

!!Corphish
-----
* ATeamFiring: So much so, that when at range, the only way he can hit ''anything'' is to explicitly ''not'' aim at it.
* CombatPragmatist: His fighting style is no-nonsense. Harass with Bubble Beam, get close, use [[LaserBlade Razor Shell]] and Crabhammer on whatever target seems most open, repeat until enemy is defeated. Faces, backs, and the backs of the legs (if applicable) seem to be his preferred targets.
* CuttingTheKnot: Tends to be his solution to everything. For that matter, the way he rejoined the team was an example of this on [[spoiler:Celebi]]'s part--they'd forgotten about encoutering Corphish, so [[spoiler:Celebi just randomly showed up and threw him at Ash. ''[[FridgeLogic Because Celebi was]] '''[[FridgeLogic running late]]'''''.]]
* LaserBlade: What his new move Razor Shell looks like. [[Franchise/StarWars Even sounds like it too.]]
* NoSocialSkills: His solution to a couple who CannotSpitItOut is to ''throw the girl at the boy''.

!![[spoiler:Goomy/Sliggoo/Goodra]]
The Kalos Pokémon Gary traded to Ash for a Mega-Evolving Pokémon from Hoenn.
-----
* BizarreAlienSenses: Can detect objects not in his line of sight if they're being rained on.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:Appeared four regions before his debut region in the anime. Moreover, Ash never made it to Kalos in the original timeline, so Ash technically had never met Goomy at all.]]
* NotQuiteFlight: At [[spoiler:Mawile's]] encouragement, he can turn his Dragon Pulse into rocket propulsion, [[spoiler: as in canon.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: To [[spoiler: Mawile]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: [[spoiler: As in canon, Fairy-Type Pokémon]]. He's even nervous around cotton candy, as it reminds him of Swirlix.

!!Absol
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally a side character from movie 6, she joins Ash's team this time around.
* DangerSense: Comes in the form of her Disaster Sense, which allows her to sense the probabilities of actions leading to disaster, including oncoming attacks. She claims to be a "chance-dancer" because of it, and is notably more skilled with her disaster sense than a different Absol who isn't one.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: The only Absol thus far that doesn't lose her head at the sight of [[WeirdnessMagnet Ash]].
* MissionControl: [[spoiler: Uses her Disaster Sense to help figure out the correct course of action during the Delta Episode.]]
* SemanticSuperpower: [[spoiler: As Mega Absol, her disaster sense extends to automatically being aware of anything that would prevent or mitigate an impending major disaster, because she can sense a reduction in danger.]]
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Can use the Absolite that Gary found earlier to Mega-Evolve.]]
** SuperPowerMeltdown: [[spoiler:When she first Mega-Evolves, though, her Disaster Sense is overclocked to the point that the massive influx of dangerous information gives her a bad case of MySkullRunnethOver, driving her berserk as a result.]]
* SwordBeam: What she's working on with regards to her Night Slash.

!!Torkoal
-----
* TheApprentice: The moment Squirtle meets him, Torkoal's immediately yanked under his wing, like it or not.
* ExcessiveSteamSyndrome: [[InsaneTrollLogic Somehow, thanks to knowing the Water-type move Withdraw, he can combine it with his fire to produce copious amounts of steam from his body]], which, when expelled through his shell-holes, [[VentPhysics turns him into a steam rocket.]]

!!Glalie
-----
* ShapingYourAttacks: Uses Ice Beam and Ice Shard to create and manipulate ice constructs, essentially using [[Manga/FairyTail Ice-Make]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Between his myriad of puns and his repetitive ice-crafting, opponents often don't take him seriously enough, which can cost them.
* PungeonMaster: Mainly ice-related, but can deliver all sorts.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Downplayed. Because ice-crafting is such a prolific tactic of his, opponents make the error that it's his ''only'' tactic, causing them to switch to close combat or simply blast away at them until he's out of ice. In actual fact, while Glalie can make more unorthodox use out of his constructs than you would first think, he's no slouch in close combat either.

!!Buizel
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Celebi drops him off at Misty's gym (they meant to send him to Dawn so he could be traded for Ambipom, but panicked due to being spotted by Barry) while Ash is on his way to the Battle Pyramid, and Misty delivers him to Ash right before that challenge can begin.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Firing a barrage of water missiles while flying in Aqua Jet is one of his go-to tactics. Especially when he [[AnIcePerson freezes]] them.
* NotQuiteFlight: Can use Aqua Jet to attain flight.
* SeenItAll: Once he's Reminded, Buizel isn't surprised by a lot of the developments in Ash's life since they last met, citing experience in regard to the time travel.

!!Staraptor
-----
* CloseRangeCombatant: Similar to Swellow, but while Swellow specializes in HitAndRunTactics, Staraptor is a straight-up brawler.
* LightningBruiser: Between Tailwind to boost his speed and his normal [[GoodOldFisticuffs brawling style]] of Close Combat and Steel Wing, he's really fearsome in close quarters.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: Has verbed a few nouns ("medicining") and adverbed a few adjectives ("superiorly") in his speech. Whether he's trying to be a {{Neologizer}} is up for debate.
* SeenItAll: Isn't really surprised by the new timeline, considering most of what he's been through in Sinnoh.

!!Infernape
-----
* CallingTheOldManOut: Downplayed; via a note to Paul, although he apologizes for losing to Cynthia, he does call Paul out for getting mad at him for losing to the strongest Pokémon of the strongest trainer in Sinnoh, with both a hefty type and level advantage.
* SeenItAll: He's not too surprised that Ash has caught several Legendaries.

!!Torterra
-----
* HiddenDepths: Enjoys planning parties.
* MightyGlacier: With his high defense and low speed, he didn't exactly mesh well with Ash's [[LightningBruiser usual high-speed strategies]], but luckily, Ash has had several years to work out something that will. Now, even if he himself moves slow, he can use ''attacks'' that don't.
* StatusBuff: Can swallow his own Energy Balls to boost his firepower.

!!Dame Kari Burns (Honedge)
------
* ActionGirl: Was a Knight before her human death, now she's a Honedge.
* CoolSword: Was [[spoiler: Ash's ceremonial sword from the Togepi Kingdom before his Aura awakened the sleeping sprit inside in Alamos Town]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: Was a knight before becoming a Honedge, and isn't going to stop being one now.
* EquippableAlly: She's a possessed sword, and she's given permission for Ash to wield her [[spoiler: like he always has]].
* OriginalCharacter: Was ''not'' around in the original timeline.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The spirit of a human knight infused into a sword.
* ShoutOut: Kari Burns is a reference (or PunnyName) to Caliburn, the sword Myth/KingArthur had before {{Excalibur}} and which was pulled from the stone to prove his right of kingship. [[spoiler: Consider that Ash has used her before to produce Sacred Swords, which he learned from Keldeo whose Sacred Sword is, per WordOfGod, based on Excalibur.]]
* TalkingWeapon: Well, PokemonSpeak for those without translation skills.
* UpliftedAnimal: [[spoiler:Exposure to Ash's Aura awakened her spirit which resided inside his ceremonial sword]].
* WasOnceAMan: Was once a human knight of the Togepi Kingdom before becoming a ghost, though Dexter notes that most Ghost-types were ''not'' born that way.

!!Tyrunt/Tyrantrum
Technically not a member of Ash's team, but he is owned by [[spoiler:Mawile]].
------
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Like just about all other reanimated Fossil Pokémon.
* GentleGiant: Is this after he evolves.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: His evolutionary line is known for being brutal, vicious and bloodthirsty. This one's a pacifist.
* TakeAThirdOption: Doesn't want to be away from Mawile, but doesn't want to be forced to battle as a member of Ash's team nor be the only member who doesn't. So Ash figures he can be [[spoiler: Mawile's Pokémon]] instead.

!!Gliscor
------
* ActionGirl
* {{Fangirl}}: Like [[spoiler:Iris]], it turns out that her unreminded self had become one for Ash due to his exploits making him famous this time around.
* TheGlomp: Loves doing this to Ash as in canon.

!!Gible
The last Pokémon Ash caught in Sinnoh in anime canon.
------
* EarlyBirdCameo: Celebi drops him off with Ash shortly after the Wallace Cup, months before they were supposed to meet.

!![[spoiler:Giratina]]
[[spoiler:Following the events of the ''Giratina and the Sky Warrior'' arc and Giratina and Ash catching one another up on their respective knowledge of the future and Team Galactic, Giratina asked Ash to catch him so that he could be trained better in preparation for the battle with Team Galactic, feeling he'd stagnated and was out of practice.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Misty Waterflower]]
Ash's first female companion, who (along with her Pokémon) regains her memories thank's to Ash's aura memory restoration abilities. She once again joins Ash on his initial journey throughout Kanto.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: In the original anime, she's just a Water-Type Gym Leader who is Ash's traveling companion. Here, she has aura training thanks to Ash, [[spoiler:and is now '''''a member of the Elite Four''''']].
* BringingInTheExpert: Ensures that, when Ash and co. [[PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea go to find Samiya]] this time, she's present to supply her expertise.
* CrazyPrepared: Her team has a ''lot'' of ways to deal with Electric-types. Justified as one of her usual sparring partners is [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pikachu]].
* CurbStompBattle: Remember the Invincible Pokémon Brothers who tried to to take over her Gym? Yeah, not so invincible now, are you?
* HopelessBossFight: She was originally going to give Ash one in order to teach him humility, but Ash, being [[IdiotHero Ash]], [[ComicallyMissingThePoint missed the point]] and his determination to win brought the roof down - specifically, the roof of Misty's Gym.
* InSpiteOfANail: Despite Ash's best efforts, her bike was destroyed, unfortunately.
* MamaBear: Is ''very'' protective of Togekiss. She doesn't like when Togekiss goes off to save the day without telling her, and makes sure the gang's visit to the Mirage Kingdom ends with her able to keep Togekiss instead of having to leave her there.
* OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce: Her all-Water-type team is theoretically weak to Electric attacks. Emphasis on theoretically. In practice, Electric-type attacks get neutralized.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Infiltrated Team Aqua to try and stop them from bringing back Kyogre.]]
* ShamuFu: Misty hits Brock with her Goldeen whenever he starts going gaga around women. [[spoiler:Once Brock settles down with a single girlfriend, this gag is dropped entirely]].
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Is one of the candidates to replace ''Lorelei of the Elite Four'']].
** [[spoiler:And by the Silver Conference, '''she ''does'''''.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Is terrified of Bug-Types, just like her incarnation from the original timeline. [[spoiler:Ash later used Aura Purge on her to help her overcome her phobia (read: [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind beat it out of her]])]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Misty's Pokémon]]
!!Goldeen[[spoiler:/Seaking]]
-----
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability, making her one of Misty's main anti-Electric teammembers.
* NoSell: [[spoiler:During Misty's E4 Qualifier battle against Raikou,]] Goldeen [[spoiler:evolves into Seaking and]] gains the aforementioned Lightningrod, which lets her absorb a Thunderbolt intended for Gyarados.
* ShamuFu: Was used by Misty to whack some sense into her companions in the early parts of the story.

!!Staryu
-----
* GeoEffects: Cutting Water Dance creates a super-fine mist that shorts out Electric moves across the whole battlefield.

!!Starmie

!!Horsea/Seadra[[spoiler:/Kingdra]]
-----
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The reason why he wants to evolve into Kingdra. [[spoiler: He gets his wish during the Spell of the Unown arc.]]

!!Psyduck[[spoiler:/Golduck]]
-----
* FourthWallObserver: Along with Abra and Arceus.
* IronicFear: Hates water, despite being a Water-type [[spoiler: and especially despite his evolution being a very good swimmer.]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: Insists he has this, [[spoiler: even after his evolution.]]
* TheReliableOne: Helped manage Misty's bills and mail [[spoiler: while she was undercover in Team Aqua]]. It's very distinct from his canonically ditzy personality. [[spoiler: Though in canon he never learned Calm Mind nor evolved.]]
* ThrowingOffTheDisability: He became a lot more coherent after learning how to control his headaches via Calm Mind. He has to bring the headaches back in order to tap into his psychic powers, but he's okay with that. [[spoiler: Although this is now a non-issue due to evolving into Golduck.]] He still can't swim, though.

!!Togekiss
-----
* BadassAdorable: Became this after [[spoiler: Ho-Oh taught her Sacred Fire.]]
* CosmicRetcon: Due to Ash breaking time, Togekiss was retconned into being Flying/Fairy. It was a strange experience for Togekiss to suddenly be a different type without evolving.
* LikeASonToMe: Misty sees her as her own daughter. Likewise, the feeling is mutual; Togekiss regards her trainer as [[ParentalSubstitute her mother]].
* PlayingWithFire: [[spoiler: Sacred Fire, a gift from Ho-Oh. See below.]]
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler:Was taught Sacred Fire by Ho-Oh himself as a birthday present to Togekiss.]]

!!Gyarados
-----
* TheBigGuy: Misty's other Pokémon can be quite strong, but Gyarados is typically brought out for situations that need a lot of power.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:The Lake of Rage incident ends with Misty getting a Keystone and Gyarados getting Gyaradosite.]]

!!Politoed

!!Kabuto[[spoiler:/Kabutops]]
-----
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Is ''very'' grateful towards Misty for her kindness to a [[FishOutOfTemporalWater time-displaced fossil]] like him. This pushes him to fight really hard for her, and it shows.
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline.
* TheQuietOne: Typically communicates with clicks and is rarely, if ever, heard speaking. [[spoiler: That is, until he evolves into Kabutops.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After evolving, most of his fights afterwards are against Legendaries, and he always holds his own]].

!!Corsola

!!Chinchou
-----
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline.

!![[spoiler: Milotic]]
-----
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline. She was used as Misty's main battling Pokémon [[spoiler: during her time undercover in Team Aqua so that she wouldn't be recognized]].

!!Azurill

!! Caserin (Luvdisc)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Brock Slate]]
Ash's first constant male companion throughout most of the series. Like Misty, he and his Pokémon regain their memories thanks to Ash. He too, rejoins Ash on their traveling adventures.

Accomplishments:

* Kanto Ribbons: Cerulean City (222).

-----
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: With so many of his team utilising illusions, he's gotten really used to subconsciously navigating around them, such that a wild group of Stantler using illusions on him doesn't even break his stride.
* CasanovaWannabe: Just like his incarnation from the original timeline, Brock flirts with (and fails to attract) every pretty woman he sees. [[spoiler: This was later revealed during the Orange Islands arc to be an attempt to rebuild his broken heart, after failing to save [[TheLostLenore Ivy]] from the same [[FreakLabAccident Unown-created accident]] that trapped [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} Spencer Hale]] in a pocket dimension in the original timeline. Brock thought she died, and his resulting psychological trauma caused him to have extreme negative reactions whenever people bring up Ivy's name]]. As of the Johto arc onward, this is no longer the case, much to the disbelief of Ash's later companions.
* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler: Professor Ivy, whom Brock loved and [[MyGreatestFailure failed to save from being trapped in a pocket dimension by the Unown]]. Fortunately, Ash's time-travelling allowed him to set things right and save her the second time around]].
* MrExposition: As a Rock-type specialist (despite what his team might lead you to believe), he has a lot of knowledge of geological formations and how they form (though not to the extent of Steven Stone). This makes him the person to explain a lot of [[ShownTheirWork the author's actual knowledge of geology]].
* MyGreatestFailure: Remember his return at the end of the Orange Islands, the hilarious RunningGag of him reacting badly to Ivy's name? We finally find out what happened. [[spoiler: The thing that happened to Spencer Hale happened to her, he couldn't save her, and he thought she was dead... [[YouBastard Still find that funny]]?]]
** MyGreatestSecondChance: ...which gives him a chance to prevent the second time around.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse, he's starting to feel this way about having more illusion Pokemon on his team than Rock types.
** It was so bad that even in the previous timeline, Dawn didn't realize he was a Rock-type specialist.
* OfficialCouple: With Professor Ivy. Ash and Misty can't believe it.
* OutOfFocus: Kinda. While he's still ''there'', of course, there isn't as much focus on his growth as there is on Ash and Misty, as his talents are more geared towards Pokémon care than they are towards battling, regardless of the fact that he's a former Gym Leader.
* PoorPredictableRock: Subverted. He's supposed to be a Rock-type Gym Leader, but only a quarter of his current team even qualifies. [[LampshadeHanging This has not gone without notice]]. During the ''Jirachi: Wish Maker'' arc, he even says his type specialty is "being misleading", [[spoiler:due to having more Pokémon who use illusions than Rock-types]].
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Because he is a Gym Leader deals with Rock-Type Pokémon, his Gym specializes in teaching trainers the lesson of Endurance.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Ever since he got together with Professor Ivy, his flirting antics are practically non-existent, much to the shock of the rest of Ash and Co.
** In fact, he now has to be pointed out when someone's flirting with him.
* SupremeChef: Even Legendaries are impressed by his cooking.
* WeaponOfChoice: His crowbar, which only sees combat when Brock needs to whack any unruly Unown.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Brock's Pokémon]]
!!Geodude
----
* DishingOutDirt: Although this is to be expected by virtue of his typing, one of his training goals is to be able to out-and-out use [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Earthbending]] via his Stone Edge move.
** Finally achieves a breakthrough thanks to Steven Stone.
* ShapingYourAttacks: By virtue of the above training skill, he does this a lot.
* MundaneUtility: Due to his Bending skills, he is often the one to help the team get around obstacles via earth platforms, bridges or structures.

!!Steelix
-----
* SapientSteed: Used like an [=APC=] often, the most notable instance being ''Heroes''.
* [[spoiler:SuperMode: Receives Steelixite courtesy of Steven Stone.]]
* TheWorfEffect: His first [[spoiler: Mega Evolved]] battle ends with him [[TakingTheBullet Taking The Blast Burn]] and getting blown off a cliff after just a few moments.

!!Crobat
-----
* OutOfFocus: Brock mainly uses Steelix and Ninetales, and Stantler and Geodude are seen reasonably often as well. Crobat has been used only very rarely since capture, especially compared to how much it was used after evolving in the show.
* SuperSenses: His sonar has proven really effective when facing off against other illusion-users.
* TheWorfEffect: He hasn't really had much success in battle either.

!!Vulpix[[spoiler:/Ninetales]]
-----
* BattleCouple: With Growlie. Any time Ash teams up with the Rocket Trio the two fight side by side.
* CombatPragmatist: As far as she's concerned, if the other guy is even aiming for the right place things have gone wrong.
* DatingCatwoman: She's happily seeing James' Growlie. Then again, this is kind of debatable seeing as the Team Rocket trio is ultimately on Ash's side.
* MasterOfIllusion: Frequently makes use of her illusions in battle.
* NoSell: Flash Fire makes her completely immune to fire attacks.
* PlayingWithFire: If she's not using illusions, she's throwing around Flamethrowers. Sometimes she does both.
* SquishyWizard: Averted. You'd expect an illusionist who mainly attacks with fire and "supernatural" effects to be weak in melee. You'd be very wrong, as she gets quite a bit of close quarters practice with Growlie.

!!Forretress
-----
* ActionBomb: Exploding is her thing, as in canon.
* ActionGirl: She was revealed to be female in her debut.

!!Stantler
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally appeared early in Johto and returned to his herd at the end of the episode. Here, he decides to join Brock's team.
* ElementalAbsorption: Has Sap Sipper, which turns all Grass-type moves used against him into stat boosts.
* MasterOfIllusion: Not quite a master yet, but he's working on it.
** With a bit of practice, he's capable of layering illusions on top of each other.

!!Ludicolo
-----
* GratuitousSpanish: His species is based on a Mexican dancer, after all.

!!Marshtomp
-----
* ExtremityExtremist: Prefers punching to ranged or other attacks. He's actually one of the few Pokémon who isn't that enthused about expanding his moveset, [[CripplingOverspecialization which has led to problems when it comes to Flying-types]].

!!Flygon
-----
* AscendedExtra: Decides to follow Brock after the events of [[Anime/PokemonJirachiWishmaker Jirachi: Wish Maker]].
* DigAttack: As a once-Trapinch, he can do this, despite having wings.
* SapientSteed: Brock's new primary mode of air travel.

!![[spoiler: Zorua]]
-----
* BigEater: Being a former wild Pokemon, and used to food being scarce, having access to Brock's amazing cooking means that she'll not only scarf down her ''own'' share, but try and shapeshift into other members of the group and get their shares. Ninetales jokes at one point that unless she stops, she'll only be able to turn into Munchlax.
* CaptainCrash: Though she can fly by shapeshifting into a Pokémon with wings, landing is a different story.
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler: It's a trait of the species. Her disguise abilities resulted in her being caught by Professor Ivy for Brock, thinking she was a Rockruff. Brock, when he finds out, is rather amused.]]
* OriginalCharacter: Didn't exist in canon.
* ThePrankster: Occasionally pulls pranks. For example, she once impersonated the Rockruff that Ivy sent him, and another time she pretended to be a sombrero for two hours as part of a plan she and Casper cooked up.
* {{Shapeshifting}}: One of her main powers.
* TastesLikeFriendship: One main factor for her joining Brock's team is Brock's cooking.

!!Sudowoodo
-----
* DishingOutDirt: Brock's first Rock-type since Geodude. Of course, since he looks like a tree, everyone reminds Brock that he ''still'' fits into the trickery theme.

!!Rockruff
She's a real one this time, caught for him by Professor Ivy and picked up while he was visiting before heading off to Sinnoh.
-----
* DishingOutDirt: Pure Rock-Type.

!!Croagunk
-----
* {{Fainting}}: Does this when he hears that his trainer finally has a girlfriend.
* DopeSlap: After getting over the news about Philena, he now says he'll Poison Jab Brock if he looks at other women ''too long''.
** And then it extends to Ash after he asks for help responding to surprise attacks.

!!Chansey
-----
* SeenItAll: Her response to being told they've time-travelled is, "I suppose we ''were'' overdue."
[[/folder]]

!!Other Traveling Companions and their Pokémon

[[folder:May Maple]]
One of Ash's Hoenn traveling companions, an extremely talented coordinator and the daughter of Petalburg's Gym Leader, Norman. Appeared towards the end of the Orange Islands arc while on vacation and witnessed Ash's battle with the Orange Crew Leader Drake, alongside her little brother Max. Seeing them, Ash decided to preemptively restore their memories, and they later joined Ash for his Hoenn League Challenge.

Accomplishments:

* Hoenn Ribbons: Slateport City (126), Verdanturf City (142), Rubello Town (149), Mossdeep City (167), Pacifidlog Town (176). Hoenn Grand Festival Top Coordinator. Kanto Grand Festival Runner-Up.
* Kanto Ribbons: Saffron City (202), Silver Town (207), Wisteria Town (211), Chrysanthemum Island[[note]]Unconfirmed[[/note]] (217), ? (219).

-----
* AttackPatternAlpha: Instead of [[CallingYourAttacks calling Pokémon attacks]], she has pre-devised battle strategies and attack combinations worked out with her Pokémon, allowing them to perform whole attack chains with just one command that are both unexpected and look extremely good.
* DamselOutOfDistress: When she gets captured by some thieves, she makes use of the starter Pokémon that were captured with her to escape, and even when she gets discovered, manages to hold them off until TheCavalry arrives.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appears two regions before her canon appearance.
* IndyPloy: Enjoys improvisation; one of her Contest strategies is to make use of [[RandomEffectSpell Munchlax's Metronome or Skitty's Assist]] and then go from there.
* MamaBear: Is ''very'' protective of [[spoiler:Manaphy]]. When [[spoiler:Phantom]] captures [[spoiler:Manaphy]], May gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to rescue her baby.
* TookALevelInBadass: Starts learning martial arts from Blaziken.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:May's Pokémon]]
!!Ethan (Porygon/[[spoiler:[=Porygon2=]]])
-----
* BarrierWarrior: Can use Reflect and Light Screen for a variety of uses, including mid-air walls or stepping stones.
* FunWithSubtitles: [[spoiler: After evolving, he can project subtitles [[HeadsUpDisplay in front of May's eyes.]] Or anyone's eyes, in fact]].
* GravityMaster: With the move Gravity, he can not only pull Pokémon harder to the ground, but he can also create horizontal and even reverse gravity.
* MechanicalEvolution[=/=]GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: [[spoiler:Optimizing his processors to remote-control a robot battalion in Anime/PokemonDestinyDeoxys is what triggers his digital evolution.]]
* ShapeshifterWeapon: By reformatting his vector body shapes with Sharpen, he can turn into a variety of objects, even InstantArmor for Blaziken.
** His battle in the Wallace Cup involved him shapeshifting into an entire fleet of {{Cool Plane}}s from all corners of history, from biplanes to jet fighters to even space fighters.
* TranslatorBuddy: Serves as one for May until she masters the Aura translation trick.

!!Blaziken
-----
* DanceBattler
* HeyYouHaymaker: Gives one to the Magma grunt for cutting their cable car cable.
* NotQuiteFlight: Can't technically speaking fly, but can casually jump hundreds of feet and change course midair.
* OverprotectiveDad: Acts like one to May despite not being her actual father. Despite wanting the best for May and keeping her safe, the events of Destiny Deoxys leads to him getting hurt trying to keep her out of harm. Beautifly calls him out on this after it's all over.
* PedestrianCrushesCar: He's hit cars, trucks and ''helicopters'', and they've all come out distinctly second best.
* SheFu: Despite being male, his fighting style contains more than a few handstands, backflips and acrobatics. Then again, he is being trained by a Coordinator and such a style looks ''good'' to watch.
* SuperSpeed: His Speed Boost ability gives him enough pace to outrun [[spoiler: Entei]].
** SpeedBlitz: What happens to anyone who lets his ability build up. Blaziken ends up fast enough to land solid hits on an entire team before the first one hit can recover, and to interrupt incoming attacks with his own.

!!Beautifly
-----
* CallingTheOldManOut: Gives one to Blaziken when she notices he's being too overprotective to May for their own good.
* StickySituation: A combination of Silver Wind and String Shot can turn the entire area into a glitter-glue mess.

!!Skitty
-----
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Like in canon, anything shiny enough to catch her eye is going to be played with until something else comes up.
* AttentionWhore: Downplayed; she gets a little irritated when May and Max don't have time to show affection to her, and instead show it to other Pokémon. Luckily, a few little strokes in the right place easily turns her into a purring fuzzball.
* CatsHateWater: Displays this tendency a few times.
* CuteKitten: As to be expected.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: She may be a little self-obsessed sometimes, but when it comes to her friends and teammates, her supportive personality really shines through.
* RandomEffectSpell: Her Assist, which can even make her use moves from Ash's substantial and utterly ''crazy'' team.
* ValleyGirl: To Ash and his team's dismay, leading Ash to suggest to May that she not learn to speak with Skitty. The author mused that he might have to apologize for this.
** LikeIsLikeAComma: The most common manifestation. Mawile tries to get to the bottom of why she does this, and it's pretty clear that Skitty might not even realize that she's doing it.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: May notes in 219 that she's starting to rely on Assist a bit too much, and resolves to use some [=TMs=] to vary her movepool up a bit.

!!Swablu/Altaria
-----
* AscendedExtra: Agrees to join May, unlike in canon.
* MusicalAssassin: Primarily uses sound-based moves like Sing and Disarming Voice in battle.
* SapientSteed: After evolving, he wants to be this for May. Unfortunately, May's fear of heights makes this difficult.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:May finds an Altarianite, but their bond has too many issues for them to yet Mega Evolve... until their appeal at the Grand Festival]].

!!Glaceon
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: One whole region before her debut. [[spoiler: Who'd have guessed Drew's newly-caught Leafeon would be her mother?]]
* NotQuiteFlight: Can move through the air on an ice-path generated from her paws.

!!Venusaur
-----
* CoolBigSis: Has this air towards the other members of her team.
* GeoEffects: Has Nature Power, and one of her tactics is to manually alter the battlefield to get the effect she wants.
* StatusBuff: Can use Growth to increase her size.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:May acquired a Venusaurite for her during her Johto travels, which is first revealed to her friends shortly after the Wallace Cup.]]

!!Spoink/[[spoiler:Grumpig]]
-----
* AccidentalKidnapping: Is caught by May by complete accident, when he mistakes a pink Love Ball on her person as his pearl.
* AmplifierArtifact: Spoink's pearl enhances his PsychicPowers, which means he initially sees it as a bit of a crutch. He gets extremely flustered and short-sighted whenever he loses it, which [[TheKlutz happens a fair bit]].
* AscendedExtra: Appears in a couple of canon episodes, but is caught by May this time around.
* JuggleFu: With his PsychicPowers, he can juggle several objects, his pearl, and even ''himself''.
* LimbSensationFascination: [[spoiler:Fascinated with his legs after evolution]].
* PsychoactivePowers: Spoink's psychic powers are tied to his confidence, but they often take a nosedive whenever he loses his pearl. Once he overcomes it and no longer sees it as necessary, this eventually leads [[spoiler: to his evolution]].

!!Munchlax
-----
* ConfusionFu: With his [[RandomEffectSpell Metronome]], the unpredictability perfectly complements May's IndyPloy strategies.
* ObsessedWithFood: May's strategy names for him are even named after berry flavors.

!!Wartortle
-----
* CrazyPrepared: Carries pre-made musical number parts to use in {{Training Montage}}s.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Can shape the water she uses into constructs, like wings.
* WhiteSheep: Is the only member of the Squirtle line to date that is ''not'' {{Otaku}}ing over anything. Or at least that's what ''[[UnreliableNarrator she]]'' says - the fact that she has sheet music on-hand for songs like ''[[Disney/{{Mulan}} I'll Make a Man Out of You]]'', and that she helped [[spoiler: Manaphy]] learn waterbending by [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid singing how it's better underwater in a funny accent]] says something different.
** Several of the group's other Pokemon assumed her obsession was WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender, due to her ShapingYourAttacks being much like waterbending. Wartortle says she's never heard of it.

!![[spoiler: Manaphy]]
-----
* DamselOutOfDistress: GenderInverted, [[spoiler:in 212, the Phantom Pirates manage to capture him, but he manages to escape on his own]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler: Lugia]] dropped off his egg long before his movie started.
* ElementalShapeshifting: Knows Acid Armour.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Via [[spoiler: Heart Swap]].
* LikeASonToMe: For May.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Learned how to make water wings from Wartortle. And that's only the start of his [[MakingASplash waterbending]].

!!Joltik
-----
* FluffyDryCat: Her effect on May's hair. As predicted by Absol.
* HeadPet: Small enough to be carried around on May's head or shoulders.
* ICantHearYou: She's so tiny that the others can barely hear her, even when she's shouting.
* OriginalCharacter: May didn't have her in canon; she was got at the daycare where she got Glaceon in the original timeline.
* ThePhilosopher: Her train of thought often goes off into bents of philosophy, much like a [[Manga/GhostInTheShell Tachikoma AI]].
-->'''Pikachu:''' You're so small you can use a coin as a bed.
-->'''Joltik:''' Yes. The juxtaposition of a symbol of profit and the gentle repose of the individual is an odd one, but I don't think it has any significance worthy of note.
* SecretWeapon: Is used as this against Solidad at the Kanto Grand Festival; since May has never used her before, [[AwesomenessByAnalysis Solidad]] can't prepare for her.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Thanks to said philosophical mindset, she can get overly verbose.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Max Maple]]
Another of Ash's (future) traveling companions, a child prodigy with an encyclopaedic-level of Pokémon knowledge. He is the son of Petalburg's Gym Leader, Norman, and the younger brother of May Maple. He appeared towards the end of the Orange Islands arc along with his sister, and had his memories restored by Ash. Ash has also filed paperwork to allow him to start his Pokémon journey early as an "apprentice" of sorts, for when they begin traveling together again.

* Hoenn Badges: Stone Badge (121), Knuckle Badge (124), Dynamo Badge (132), Heat Badge (139), Balance Badge (144), Feather Badge (155), Mind Badge (169), Rain Badge (172). Did not finish the Ever Grande Conference [[spoiler: due to the Delta Episode interrupting]].

* EarlyBirdCameo: Appears two regions before his canon appearance.
* TheNicknamer: The only one of the main protagonists who seems to enjoy giving his Pokémon nicknames, and the more meaningful the better.

[[folder:Max's Pokémon]]
!!Kris (Porygon)

!!Arc (Electrike/Manectric)

Max's starter.
-----
* BigFriendlyDog: Can take on this air at times, especially after evolving.
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability.
* NitroBoost: As typical of his evolutionary line, he can channel his electricity into his muscles for a burst of speed, commonly used for [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming]].
* RunningGag: While he settled on Arc as a nickname, it took him a while, requiring Max to often take out a list of nicknames so that he could make up his mind: Watt, Ohm, Volta, Coulomb...
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Right after evolving, he manages to Mega Evolve via the Manectite gotten [[ChekhovsGun all the way back in the Sea Mauville.]]]]

!!Guy (Shroomish/Breloom)
-----
* AscendedExtra: In the original timeline, he just befriended Max. This time around, due to Max being a full-fledged trainer, he can join his team.
* TheBigGuy: The CloseRangeCombatant out of Max's team, and the one with the most raw muscle.
* FantasticFightingStyle: [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Since he can just regenerate damage]], Primeape is helping him develop a strength-focused fighting style that does not care about taking damage to dish it out.
* [[FeedItWithFire Feed It With Poison]]: Has the ability Poison Heal, and carries a Toxic Orb to make full use of it.
* {{Homage}}: He was named after [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Might Guy]]. His fighting style even resembles Might Guy's Goken (Strong Fist).
* MeteorMove: His Leaf Storm and Leaf Tornado [[AttackPatternAlpha striking combos]], another {{Homage}} to his namesake. Opponents facing him often prepare for [[NamesTheSame the actual moves]] until they realize that Breloom can't learn them.
* PunnyName: Guy. [[DontExplainTheJoke As in, Fungi/Fun Guy]].
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: How he uses his Seed Bombs.

!!Cinder (Poochyena/Mightyena)
-----
* AscendedExtra: In the original timeline, she just befriended Max. This time around, due to Max being a full-fledged trainer, she can join his team.
* ButtBiter: She attacks Sabrina's Kadabra this way.
* CombatPragmatist: Scaring enemies unconscious? Latching on and not letting go? Yep, that's her.
** She's even capable of using Payback ''before'' an enemy attacks by justifying it as preemptive retribution.
* IJustWantToBeBadass: She really, ''really'' wanted to evolve. Lucky for her, all she had to do was meet Ash.
* OneSteveLimit: Why Max does not nickname her "Ash" or "Ashes".
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Given that she is a frequent target for Casper's pranks, this is her sentiment when she has to partner with him during the Mossdeep Gym battle.
* TerrorHero: Plays this up during her battle against Sabrina, scaring her Espeon foe out of his mind to the point that he apparently faints out of sheer ''fear''.
** In her Dark City Gym battle, her Scrafty opponent elects to [[KnowWhenToFoldEm pretend to faint]] after she threw him around like a rag doll by the tail, and was coming to do more.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Makes use of a lot of biting moves, which allow her to use many different elements while attacking the same way.
* YouFightLikeACow: How she uses Swagger on her Scyther opponent during the Dark City Gym battle, insulting his abilities as a Flying Type.

!!Delta (Mantyke/Mantine)
-----
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: After evolving, he's strong enough to carry Max himself.

!![[spoiler:Jirachi]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* BigEater: Likes making giant sandwiches.
* BulletHell: Can create the minefield version using Future Sight.
* CripplingOverspecialization: See WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer.
* ImmortalImmaturity: Technically several thousand years old at least, but because he's only been awake a week at a time every millenia, he doesn't ''act'' nearly that old.
* LiteralGenie: [[spoiler:It's not his fault, but he doesn't fully control his powers; whether it's due to youth or nature is yet to be seen]].
* OddNameOut: The only one of Max's active roster without a nickname. This is lampshaded a few times, and a few suggestion have been floated by, but nothing's stuck so far.
* PowerCopying: Knows Skill Swap.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Due to being a Psychic-Type, he can do this, which runs into problems with the team's Dark-types, since they're immune to all Psychic-Type abilities.
* TookALevelInBadass: Displays a more varied move pool in Max's Kanto League, including using his teleportation in battle more, Skill Swap, and Hyper Beam.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: He is defeated by Sabrina and Mew because his Future Sight trick is his main attack. Sabrina even lampshades it.
** The third Sinnoh chapter also brings this up, as he's looking through a TM catalogue to decide what moves he should try and learn to vary his movepool.

!!Casper (Shuppet/Banette)
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* {{Corpsing}}: Has a problem with the giggles whenever he plays a prank.
* LimbSensationFascination: Is very happy to have gotten hands after evolving.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Knows Screech.
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Evolves mid-battle against Sabrina, only to get knocked out.
* ThePrankster: Is one, with Cinder being a frequent target of his practical humor. This ends up causing problems for Max during the Gym battle against Tate and Liza, [[TeethClenchedTeamwork given that Casper is partnered with Cinder.]]
* ShoutOut: His name is one to WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: The group found a Banettite all the way back in Hoenn, but his and Max's bonds have too many issues for Casper to Mega-Evolve. They finally get it when he has a Gym Battle against the Sensational Sisters.]]
* ThinkingUpPortals: An aspect of his Phantom Force move.

!!Roland (Ralts/Kirlia[[spoiler:/Gallade]])
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* BifurcatedWeapon: [[spoiler: As Gallade]], he's learned how to temporarily fuse his different blade moves into double-sided (if fragile) energy swords, giving him more options in battle.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: When he evolves into Kirlia. His sister wants to take full advantage and put him in dresses and ribbons she got from May's stuff, much to his dismay.
* PowerCopying: One of his abilities is Trace.
* PowerParasite: Knows Snatch.
* SpellBlade: [[spoiler: After evolving into Gallade]], he's learned a multitude of blade moves that he can imbue his arms with, and swap through them rapidly and at will.
* TastesLikePurple: Already has a name, but can only be communicated through psychic powers and a number of weird sensations.
--> '''Max''': Why can I taste caramel and chocolate? And... it sounds kind of like a wind chime, and I think I can see purple?
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Learned Teleport between Max first meeting him and the time travel incident.
** TeleportSpam: [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer And he's very good at using them to his full potential]], as shown in his first real battle in the Ever Grande Conference. [[spoiler:After evolving, he forces Forrest, who's using ''Steelix'', to surrender by repeatedly teleporting Steelix up and dropping him into the ground]].

!!Corona (Charmander)
-----
* NotQuiteFlight: Combining and {{Shaping| Your Attacks}} her Flare Blitz and Flame Charge into a dragon-shaped BattleAura allows her to take flight, at least for a while.
* OriginalCharacter: She is a starter Pokémon taken from Professor Oak's lab.
* WreathedInFlames: Knows Flare Blitz and Flame Charge, which by now have become her primary moves.

!!Ferris (Aron)
-----
* ExtremeOmnivore: At one point he has to be stopped from [[EatDirtCheap eating a metal tray]], instead of just the food on it.
* TheGlomp: Absol predicted "tackle-glomping" as a disaster when Max chose his egg. Considering his weight, that makes sense.
* LightningBruiser: Has Dragon Rush as an egg move, allowing him to put on a burst of speed and catch his foes off guard.
* OriginalCharacter: Hatched from an egg Max got at the Pokémon Day Care.
* TheQuietOne: Prefers simple but concise gestures to talking.
* UseYourHead: Has decided that headbutting his foes is going to be his preferred tactic.

!![[spoiler: Deoxys-Orange]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally from the ''[[spoiler: Pokémon Ranger - Deoxys' Crisis!]]'' two-parter, he accidentally gets caught by Max.
* CommutingOnABus: After being caught, he decides to let Max keep his Pokéball so he can't be caught by anyone else, then leaves with a transceiver so he can return as needed.
* ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud: Like other [[spoiler: Deoxys]].
* SenseFreak: Being a being with NoMouth, eating and tasting is a new experience for him, especially Brock's cooking.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Has to be told by Ferris to shorten his thought patterns several times.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dawn Berlitz]]
Yet another of Ash's (future) traveling companions, an extremely talented coordinator from the Sinnoh region (and the daughter of Johanna, herself a past Top Coordinator), who met up with Ash at the Hoenn Grand Festival and had her memories restored. Currently traveling with Ash and Brock through Sinnoh.

Accomplishments:

* Sinnoh Ribbons: Jubilife City (241), Hearthome City (254), Wallace Cup (Aqua Ribbon) (260)

-----
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Brock getting a girlfriend is the one part of Ash and company's tale that she ''doesn't'' accept almost immediately.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday[=/=]SeenItAll: Whereas her mother is completely overwhelmed by Ash and Co., Dawn acclimates to the situation very quickly. After her memories are restored, she notes that things are only "weirder than usual". Brock having a steady girlfriend is the one thing she finds unusual.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appears two regions before her canon appearance.
** And her Pokémon start appearing in her backyard soon after. ''All of them''.
* FlatWhat: Her reaction to learning that Brock has a girlfriend.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: She accepts everything about the time travel with little to no difficulty (though she demands more detailed explanations for the bigger stuff), but Brock actually having a steady girlfriend is something she just can't wrap her head around.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dawn's Pokémon]]
!!Piplup
-----
* BadassAdorable: And he plans to keep it that way via an Everstone.
* SilentSnarker: While Dawn was still learning how to understand him, Piplup was still able to lampshade the HypocriticalHumor in Dawn pointing out Ash's Suicine showing off.
* SwordFight: Can fence with his lengthened beak while using Peck.
* TheNapoleon: Despite his short statue, he's very full of himself.

!!Buneary
-----
* ShapingYourAttacks: Pikachu's training enabled her to sculpt oversized limbs out of elemental energy.
* ShipTease: Still has a crush on Pikachu.
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: Piplup manages to convince her to not run off by telling her things that she hadn't told ''anyone'' at that point in the timeline.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Pikachu. Pikachu admits that he'd had a bad first impression of her, and is willing to start over from the beginning to see if there is anything between them.

!!Pachirisu
-----
* MascotsLoveSugar: Really likes her sweet Poffins.
* TastesLikeFriendship: While she was still uncaptured, Dawn befriended her by feeding her hazelnut snacks.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Nuts. It's been {{Lampshaded}} a few times.

!!Mamoswine
-----
* TheBigGuy: Easily Dawn's biggest Pokémon.
* GrumpyBear: Compared to the rest of Dawn's cute and cuddly team, he's definitely a lot gruffer.
* ImpossiblyGracefulGiant: He can ice-skate, though you wouldn't think it from his size.

!!Quilava
-----
* SitcomArchNemesis: Argues with Piplup about the most inane topics, everything from architecture to topiary. [[VitriolicBestBuds Buneary believes that they both enjoy it]].

!!Togekiss
-----
* CommutingOnABus: Her time is negotiated to be shared between Dawn and Princess Salvia.

!!Ambipom
The last of Dawn's canon Pokémon (excluding Buizel) to be introduced, she falls on Ash's head when he's on his way to the Battle Pyramid and is delivered to Dawn afterward.
-----
* MartialArtsAndCrafts: Is a fourth dan black belt in Ping-Pong.
* SeenItAll: Subverted, unlike the rest of the Sinnoh cast; she needs a bit of time to come to terms with all the changes. This is apparently due to not being around for the incident with Arceus in Sinnoh.
** She ''was'' around for the collapse of space-time in Alamos Town, as Pikachu argues, but apparently that didn't convince her of the group being a WeirdnessMagnet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Iris]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Unova region, and an aspiring Dragon Master. Initially shown during her time at the Opelucid Academy, before she decides to drop out. Iris eventually runs into Keldeo during the early parts of the Sinnoh arc, and Ash pays a visit to Unova in order to remind her.
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing in the late Hoenn arc, several chapters earlier than Dawn.
* FanGirl: Iris appears to have a case of this towards Ash. She had a poster of of him next to her other idols [[WorldsStrongestMan Lance and Cynthia]], and believes he would never have obedience issues with his Pokémon. ''Very'' ironic, considering her [[VitriolicBestBuds attitude]] towards him in canon.
** Excadrill mentions the posters once they're reminded, and Pikachu finds it completely hilarious.
* HeroicBSOD: She has... difficulty reconciling the [[IdiotHero Ash]] she remembers with the [[TheAce Ash Ketchum]] that she's heard so much about. In particular, she's astonished to learn that he was a WeirdnessMagnet ''long'' before meeting her.
* LoopholeAbuse: Iris is given an assignment to detail the history of Unova's Gyms. She finds this difficult, but upon re-reading the assignment, decides that she can just write about the Opelucid Gym instead. She finds that much more interesting.
* TookALevelInKindness: After being reminded and finding out about Ash's numerous accomplishments (including those from the original timeline), she apologizes for her dismissive attitude.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Still doesn't like ice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Iris's Pokémon]]

!!Excadrill
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: Prior to Iris meeting up with Ash, Excadrill was still in this phase.
* CannotKeepASecret: Casually mentions that Iris has Ash posters immediately after being reminded, much to his Trainer's embarassment.
* NoHeroToHisValet: Even after being reminded and becoming aware of the changed timeline, he's completely unimpressed by Ash and Pikachu, even repeating Iris's "such a kid" line.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Didn't really like Iris or her other Pokémon, prior to being reminded.

!![[spoiler: Fraxure]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: He was an Opelucid Academy Pokémon assigned to be Iris's partner during her tenure there, but Drayden decided to give him to her permanently on account of the bond they developed.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cilan]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Unova region, and one of the three Striaton City Gym Leaders. Hasn't met with Ash yet; he first appears in the story during the Hoenn League, at which point he and his brothers are starting up their gym.
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing late in the Hoenn arc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Serena]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Kalos region and currently Dawn's pen pal. Although at the right age to become a trainer, her mother Grace has kept trying to steer her into Rhyhorn racing, which is a point of contention between them.
-----
* CelebCrush: After learning her connection to Ash, she seems to be developing one on him, maybe mixed with a bit of HeroWorship.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing in the Kanto Battle Frontier arc as Dawn's pen pal.
* TakeAThirdOption: She and her mother eventually compromise and allow her to get a Pokémon that's not a Rhyhorn, but is still ride-able. Serena eventually finds a Blitzle who likes the riding idea (at least when he gets bigger).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Clemont]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Kalos region.
-----
* ChildProdigy: At the age of 8, he provided invaluable assistance to Ariadospace [[spoiler: during the Delta Episode meteor crisis]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Made his first appearance at the end of Hoenn, [[spoiler: during the Delta Episode]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gary Oak]]
Ash's former rival, now one of his closest friends. In the original timeline, after having retired from Pokémon League competition to become a researcher, Gary attempted to thwart Cyrus' attempt to reshape the world, only to fail. Ash restored his memories, and now Gary goes around investigating the numerous changes to the timeline that Ash's time traveling adventure is causing (particularly Mega Evolution). Unlike those mentioned above, Gary's Pokémon were not restored, as Ash didn't know them well enough to do so.

Accomplishments:

* Kanto: Indigo League runner-up.
* Kalos: Kalos League Champion.

-----

* ButtMonkey: If anything bad can happen, odds are it's going to happen to Gary. The poor guy has a lot of crap happen at his expense, most notably the below ChainOfDeals. Seeing as his grandfather tends to suffer similarly thanks to Ash's eccentric Pokémon, it's probably hereditary. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in an Author's Note: "Being Gary Oak is suffering".
** ThrowTheDogABone: For all his troubles, [[spoiler:he gets a piece of Blastoisinite and a Key Stone, and eventually his research gets published in ''Pokémon'' journal, even ending up on the cover]].
** He even subverts CantCatchUp by [[spoiler:winning the Kalos League]].
* ChainOfDeals: Gary found himself in one trying to teach Alakazam Teleport. [[labelnote:The full chain]]Gary needs to borrow Oak's Dragonite because there's a man in Geosenge who will give a fossil to someone who shows him a fully-evolved Dragon-type. From the fossil he'll get an Anorinth that can be traded for a Liepard, that traded for a Swoobat, that for a Clefairy, and that for a Gyarados, who can be shown to Marie in Camphrier for a letter. The letter is to be given to Jacques who will give him a Farfetch'd that can be traded for a Beartic and then that for a shiny Furfrou. Furfrou is then to get a haircut and be shown to Gym Leader Valerie to get a Focus Sash that can be traded for a Silk Sash. That is to be given to a girl in Luminose for a Pokémon that can dance, and after showing a dancing Pokémon to a certain guy he will get the Heart Scale he needs to give to the Move Relearner as payment for him having Alakazam re-learn Teleport.[[/labelnote]] Prof. Oak manages to derail the Chain by telling Gary that Misty has a Gyarados she would most likely let him borrow, Oak knows someone with a Clefairy and both Silk and Focus Sashes, Ash's Totodile can dance, Oak has about twenty Heart Scales just lying around the lab, and when Muk ate the [=TMs=] like cookies he didn't eat the Teleport [=TM=]. Gary is understandably pissed, but winds up accepting the TM and borrowing Dragonite and Gyarados, allowing him to complete at least part of the chain and get an Anorith and a Furfrou out of it.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Even excluding all his other adventures, in the original timeline, he was battling Cyrus trying to prevent the collapse of time.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: His Kalos League victory]].
* TheCallPutMeOnHold: [[spoiler: Although not noticeable at the time, he was initially unable to be reminded due to being at the epicenter of the old timeline's collapse, but the Lake Trio and Celebi fixed it before Ash met Gary again during the Kanto P1 Grand Prix]].
* TheMentor: To Molly on her Sinnoh journey.
* TheSleepless: Due to the time difference between Poké-Japan (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh) and Poké-France (Kalos), interacting with Ash and co. really cuts down on his sleep time, which happens more often than he likes.
* TheSmartGuy: For Ash's friends, being a Pokémon researcher in training and all.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gary's Pokémon]]
!!Blastoise
-----
* {{Expy}}: Of post-TimeSkip [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon]]. Thanks, Squirtle.
* LargeHam: Again, thanks, Squirtle.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: With sufficient water control, he can do this with water missiles. [[ThisIsADrill Drill-headed water missiles]].
* ShapingYourAttacks: When using Dragon Pulse, he turns it into a gigantic dragon construct like Siebold.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Thanks to his new piece of Blastoisinite, implanted into his Simon-style star-sunglasses.]]

!!Dee (Porygon)
-----
* TheSmartGuy: Of Gary's Pokémon. Again, it's justified as she's a computer like Dexter.
* TranslatorBuddy: With a Bluetooth earpiece, she helps Gary understand Poké-speech.

!!Umbreon
-----
* BarrierWarrior: Has really trained up her Reflect and Light Screen shield moves.
* BerserkButton: Don't insult her mother, not even by accident.
** Or rather, don't speak ill of the Umbreon ''species,'' as doing so would include her mother.
* CombatPragmatist: She isn't above using the fact that she's adorable to her advantage in a fight. She ''is'' a Dark-type, after all.
* PoisonousPerson: Knows Toxic. She uses this to deliver a CurbStompBattle to Valerie's Sylveon.
* TheLeader: She's essentially this to Gary's team.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: She holds her mother in high regard, which is why she wanted to evolve into Umbreon.
* StealthHiBye: How she introduces herself to Sableye after Ash & Gary's trade.

!!Nidoqueen

!!Fearow
-----
* FoodAsBribe: How Gary keeps him in line.
* ForWantOfANail: In the original timeline, he was the leader of the Spearow flock that Ash and Pikachu encountered at the beginning of their journey and remained a wild Pokémon. Since Ash avoided him this time around, Gary ran into him instead and caught him.
* PsychoSidekick: Gary has to resort to bribery (with food) to keep him in line.

!!Alakazam
-----
* AttackDrone: How his extra spoons work when [[spoiler: he is Mega-Evolved]], as he can fire beam attacks from them and even charge them with elemental punch attacks.
* OnlySaneMan: Gary tries to argue at one point that he is this for his Pokemon, by Alakazam standards at least.
* NobodyTouchesTheHair: Gets alarmed at Furfrou's suggestion of styling his mustache.
* TheSmartGuy: Very intelligent, though we have yet to see it in battle.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: His Teleport is the only way for Gary to get to and from Kalos in any appreciable time.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Has an Alakazamite that he makes good use of.]]

!!Arcanine
-----
* WallJump[=/=]LeParkour: What he likes to practice, ruining Gary's image of him as the OnlySaneMan.

!!Furfrou
-----
* ActionFashionista: Not even using Surf underground will get mud on her fabulous coat. That would be barbaric.
** [[CoveredInGunge Battling a Goomy, on the other hand...]]
* CulturedBadass: Has very exquisite and refined habits, such as keeping up with fashion and drinking artisan coffee. The rest of her team don't quite understand it.
* StoneWall: Her ability, Fur Coat, halves physical damage, and between that, [[StatusBuff Cotton Guard]] and Charm, it means that she doesn't take much damage even from Super Effective Fighting-Type moves. Has a bit of trouble ''dealing'' damage, at least to tough opponents like Lucario.
** So much so that even [[GlassCannon Primeape]] can't do much to her and her fur.

!!Anorith

!!Sableye
The Mega-Evolution-capable Pokémon Ash traded to Gary.
-----
* EatDirtCheap: Loves eating gemstones, as per his species.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: After Ash's battle to catch him, he talks about trading him to his friend Gary to help with Mega-Evolution research, and that Gary can get his hands on Sablenite. Sableye immediately exclaims that if he had said that first, he wouldn't have bothered fighting.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: With his huge gemstone shield, he can perform all the classic popular shield maneuvers like ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks and ShieldBash.
* StoneWall: His Mega-Evolution focuses mainly on defense.
* SuperMode: Can Mega Evolve.

[[folder:Tracey Sketchit]]
Another of Ash's companions who has his memories restored. He travels with Ash and Misty during the Orange Islands arc before settling down as Professor Oak's assistant (again).

* NotSoDifferent: His philosophy about what sketches and drawings can capture better than photos is very similar to Todd Snap's philosophy about what photos can capture better than drawings. This is Lampshaded when the two of them meet.
* OutOfFocus: Since a lot of the action is where Ash is, Tracey doesn't get a lot of screentime once the Orange Islands Arc ends.
* TheMentor: To Molly during her studies to become a Trainer before the age of ten. Gary takes over the role when she heads off to Sinnoh with him.
* TookALevelInBadass: Thanks to Ash, his Scyther evolves into a Scizor, strengthening him up enough to counter his old age.

!!The Rocket Trio and their Pokémon

[[folder:Tropes that apply to all three of them]]
* AchievementsInIgnorance: The readers on the Spacebattles thread note that the trio actually has multiple talents (machinery operation, business acumen, etc.), but their focus on being criminals prevents them from being successful through legitimate means. Now that they are successful Team Rocket agents (admins even, with Giovanni's direct approval no less), they focus on these other pursuits.
* AdaptationalBadass: ''Oh yes''. Thanks to Ash's memory restoration, they acquired new skills that allowed them to be more competent than they were in the original timeline. And after fulfilling Giovanni's SecretTestOfCharacter, they RankUp to Rocket Executives and PR agents for Team Rocket. And they ''stay that way''. Oh, and Meowth becomes a {{Ninja}} thanks to Koga's Meowzie teaching him.
** Their Pokémon get in on this, too. Besides Meowth, those that were already in the roster evolve and get new moves, while newcomers include [[spoiler:an Audino who is a SupremeChef, a cosplaying ''Pikachu'', and a freakin' '''''Moltres''''']].
* BadassCrew: Giovanni holds them and their abilities in incredibly high regard, a very stark contrast to the original anime. They more than live up to his new expectations.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is viewed as this by Giovanni; they are certain strange but also are ''very'' effective. This holds true in reality as well; they are, in fact, that badass but also still tend towards being... odd.
* CoolPlane: Has used several in place of their old Meowth balloon, but they seem to have settled on a modified [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_C-130_Hercules C-130 Machamp]] tiltrotor. And they've used it for many a GunshipRescue.
* CurbStompBattle: Thanks to Ash giving them their memories of the original timeline, the first thing they do after encountering the Poison-Type poacher Rico (who originally forced them to release Arbok and Weezing) is to hand him his ass.
* DungeonBypass: Using Abra's Teleport, they do this and skip the entire obstacle course in the Fuchsia Gym. Koga's response is to promptly [[ObviousRulePatch disallow the usage of Teleport for future challengers]].
* EvilVersusOblivion: Besides gathering good PR for Team Rocket, the Rocket Trio's purpose is to stop villains from ruining the world in any way because in a destroyed world, you can't rule or make a profit. Giovanni knows it, so he sends the Rocket Trio to disaster areas to help Ash and co. because usually that's where the kids would be.
* FriendlyEnemy: Ash knows them well enough to restore the memories of all three and the Pokémon they had at the time. There's no way that would've been possible if this trope wasn't in play.
* HonoraryTrueCompanion: To Ash and co., thanks to Ash restoring their (and their Pokémon's) memories of the original timeline. In spite of all that's transpired between them, it becomes very clear that on some level, he regards the trio as very close friends. As the fic goes on, Team Rocket eventually stops attacking Ash altogether and is content hanging out with him, Misty, and Brock whenever they cross paths, any previous hostility having long-since dissipated... which usually leaves new Pokémon who were with Ash in the ''previous'' timeline to be rather confused when Team Rocket shows up, and instead of reciting the motto and attempting to steal them, instead sit down for a chat.
* LaserGuidedKarma: The rare good variation. Towards the end of ''Voice of the Forest'', Team Rocket had Pikachu's Poké-ball and a sure-fire chance of ''finally'' capturing him. After much deliberation, they make the decision to return it to Ash, even though they have waited ''years'' for this sort of opportunity. Knowing all this, one can't help but feel that the universe was rewarding them for their selflessness [[spoiler:by having Wallace give them their own Pikachu]].
* MuggingTheMonster: Thanks to Ash restoring the Rocket Trio's memories, the Poison-type poacher Rico (who originally forced them to release Arbok and Weezing) got his ass handed to him on a silver platter.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Given their ridiculous appearance, yet undeniable competence, Giovanni sees them as this.
-->'''Giovanni:''' You know, I can't tell if you're hyper-competent and just ''look'' silly, or you're the luckiest people who don't actually have a Victini.
* RankUp: Thanks to a SecretTestOfCharacter, the trio are admins now. Sure, they only qualified for the lowest rung of the executive branch, but it's a step up nonetheless.
* ReverseMole: Ultimately, they are working with Ash to prevent the disaster that ends the world, and in the meantime they're putting on a good show for Giovanni while aiding Ash is other situations - including staged battles between the Rockets and Ash that make both look good. It just so happens, however, that Giovanni is just as interested in keeping the world safe as they are and sees them as perfect agents to head off rogue Rockets, other evil Teams and other disasters, so even though he doesn't know about their true allegiances he makes it easy for them without having to [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten eat any kittens]]. Their job becomes especially easy when Giovanni orders them to stop "attacking" Ash and co. and focus on global threats entirely. However, they still have to make sure nobody figures out that the two groups are actually ''friends'' as opposed to just happening to run into each other.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To all of Team Rocket, though most of the other Rockets believe that everything they do is on Giovanni's orders (which it ''technically'' is). Giovanni himself seems to realize that they're not particularly evil, but [[VillainWithGoodPublicity he doesn't mind because he needs agents like that for PR purposes.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Unlike in the anime, the levels stick. Their increased competency astonishes both Brock and Misty, who only ever knew them as their incompetent incarnations. Add to the fact that Team Rocket has gained many new, powerful Pokémon, and it's probably a good thing that they don't hound Ash as much and are technically on his side.
** It really says something when ''Giovanni'' acknowledges their competency and outright admits, ''to their faces'', that he wished that his agents were as good as they are.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: Because of all those lectures they gave on Ash to the rest of Team Rocket so everyone knows to stay clear of him, particularly emphasizing how strong his Pokémon are, when Ash and Co. show up to stop him, The Iron-Masked Marauder knew precisely which Pokémon to throw his Dark Balls at]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: On top of being one of Team Rocket's best teams, most of the PR work Team Rocket has been doing since the time travel mainly involves them. It started when they participated in the Kanto Gym Challenge and placed third at the Indigo League, and spearheaded from there. Since then they are visibly seen at many of Ash's world-saving trials (which is often covered by the news) and have participated at many other well-covered events such as the Pokéathlon. Because of this and their new executive status, they enjoy a great amount of freedom that most other Rocket teams lack, which they use to pursue non-criminal pursuits (in fact, Jessie, James, and co. haven't committed or even tried to commit an actual crime since the end of Kanto). Their lack of crime has become so prevalent in the later chapters that really the only thing that makes them "villains" is the fact that they're members of a criminal organization, and even then one that has proven to be the most relatively benign in the narrative.

[[folder:Jessie]]
Accomplishments:

* Hoenn Ribbons: 5 unknown ribbons.
* Kanto Ribbons: 5 unknown ribbons. Kanto Grand Festival Top Coordinator.

-----
* HoldYourHippogriffs: At one point Jessie mentions wanting to put a Ponyta in Jessebelle's bed. The other Rockets were confused until she elaborated that it would set the bed on fire and probably break a lot of her stuff while trying to escape.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Is still domineering towards the other members of her cell (especially when it comes to contests), but is loyal to her team nonetheless.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:James]]
-----
* {{Crossdresser}}: Still enjoys dressing up as women, for events like taking Jessie's place during a contest.
* [[ChickMagnet Grass-type Magnet]]: Something about the way he smells and feels is the reason he keeps getting [[TheGlomp glomped]] by his Grass-types. Culminates in him getting dog-piled at a Grass Pokémon reserve.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Meowth]]
-----
* {{Ninja}}: Given his moveset includes Substitute, Faint Attack and shuriken-esque Pay Day, not surprising.
* TookALevelInBadass: Even after getting his memories restored, Meowth found that most of his talents was in translating. While Jessie and James were completing their Fuschia Gym challenge, Koga's own Meowth helped show him how to finally use Pay Day, which inspired him to really expand his moveset.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Rocket Trio's Pokémon]]
!!Arbok
-----
* CulturedBadass: Has a penchant for theater, from Japanese Noh plays to Creator/GilbertAndSullivan.

!!Weezing
-----
* OutOfFocus: Appeared with Victreebel more often in the Kanto-Johto sagas, but has appeared less due to the additions to the team both from the original timeline and the new timeline.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often seen with Victreebel.

!!Growlie (Arcanine)
-----
* AscendedExtra: He joins James full-time after meeting him again a lot sooner than in canon.
* BattleCouple: With Ninetales. Any time Ash teams up with the Team Rocket Trio the two fight side by side.
* DatingCatwoman: With Brock's Ninetales. Though it's somewhat debatable considering that the trio and their Pokémon are ultimately on Ash's side.
* LightningBruiser: Can dish out and take a lot of punishment, and even before using Extremespeed he's one of the fastest non-legendaries.

!!Gyarados
-----
* ExtremeOmnivore: An unintentional example; Gyarados often ends up swallowing things that get too close to his mouth, like a race baton and a cellphone.
* PetTheDog: The Rocket Trio decides to keep Magikarp this time around, letting him evolve into Gyarados.

!!Abra
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: Despite being unevolved, he's ridiculously strong, yet being an Abra, all he wants to do is sleep.
* FourthWallObserver: Along with Psyduck and Arceus.
* KillerRabbit: You wouldn't think that an unevolved Pokémon like him has enough psychic power to hit way above his weight class or do a [[spoiler: space-to-earth teleport]], but he does.
* LaboriousLaziness: Willing to go to great lengths and is capable of pulling off great feats, all in the name of getting just a little more sleep.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In accordance to his LaboriousLaziness, he always uses telepathy, even with other Pokémon. So when he actually speaks, you know it's something serious.
* OriginalCharacter: He wasn't there with the Rocket Trio in the original timeline.
* PsychicPowers: Is a Psychic-Type, so naturally among his moves include Teleport and {{Telepathy}}.

!!Cubone/Marowak
-----
* BadWithTheBone: Other than just her regular bone weapon, her Reality Marble can create the bones of other Pokémon for her to use as weapons. And they still carry the elemental nature of their types, so manifested bones of Dark-types can block Psychic attacks.
* BrokenBird: She's carrying a lot of pain and regret for being unable to save her family when they needed her. Ash's Aura Purge helps her surpass much of it, but she doesn't fully come to terms with it until part 53 of Hoenn. And with that, she evolves.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: Needs to recite a short aria in order to summon her Reality Marble. She can even do it while still in her [=PokéBall=] if she wants to access it immediately in battle.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]].
** She's also clearly based on the killed Marowak moment of ''Red and Blue''.
* FieldOfBlades: Her Reality Marble manifests as a field of bones. [[spoiler:It turns into a normal grass field after her "therapy session" with Ash]].
* {{Nerf}}: After the events of ''Mewtwo Returns'', her Reality Marble does this. It basically becomes less powerful and harder to access, but more flexible and easier to alter.
* OriginalCharacter: She wasn't there with the Rocket Trio in the original timeline.
* PeoplePuppets: If she understands someone's skeleton well enough, she can manipulate his/her skeleton like one of her bone weapons. So far she's used it with Arbok.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: Can manifest bones out of her Reality Marble.
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:One of the reasons why it took her so long to let go of her guilt is because, while she ''can and wants to'' get over it, she ''refuses'' to do so because she fears she'd forget her dead family if she did.]]
* YouShouldHaveDiedInstead: Downplayed. She doesn't actually think this, but she's quite angry that Ash got resurrected (first movie) while her family stayed dead.

!!Weepinbell/Victreebel
-----
* OutOfFocus: Appeared with Weezing more often in the Kanto-Johto sagas, but has appeared less due to the additions to the team both from the original timeline and the new timeline.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often seen with Weezing.

!!Wobbuffet
-----
* HurricaneOfPuns: Now that we can understand him, there's no escape from his punny onslaught...
* PungeonMaster: Much to everyone's dismay.

!![[spoiler:Moltres]]
-----
* AccidentalKidnapping: Accidentally captured herself in one of James's Pokéballs while sneaking around their camp.
* StalkerWithACrush: After she watched James [[spoiler:in his Moltres costume]] help thwart a group of Pokémon Pinchers who were looking to capture her, she fell in love and started following him around.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Meowth is teaching her to speak to humans, but she's not very coherent yet.

!!Carnivine
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Joins the team a lot earlier than in canon.

!!Seviper
-----
* BewareMyStingerTail: And it has a lot of different kinds of stings: Dragon Tail, Aqua Tail, Poison Tail, Iron Tail...
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Was this for Arbok in canon, but is {{Lampshaded}} when he rejoins the [=TRio=] to find that Arbok was never released. The two of them have a bit of a stand-off before becoming good friends.

!!Cacnea/Cacturne
-----
* CuddleBug: As in canon. Her increased size doesn't make things easier for poor James, though.

!!Dustox
* CommutingOnABus: Borrowed one of Professor Oak's transceivers so she could rejoin the Rocket cell if needed after reuniting with her old mate.

!![[spoiler: Audino]]
The Pokémon Giovanni gave them to assist with the team's injuries. He's actually trained by Jessie's old Chansey friend.
-----
* BerserkButton: Gets rather annoyed if someone tries to over-spice his cooking.
--> "Don't add that much salt, you'll ruin it!"
* TheMedic: His new role in Team Rocket's cell.
* OriginalCharacter: Didn't exist in canon.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Ash gives the Rocket Trio the Audinite he found, and Giovanni lets them use a Key Stone from TR's armory.]]
* SupremeChef: He's really, really good at making food. That being said, it's not advised to [[BerserkButton over-spice his cooking]].
* TeamChef: His other new role in Team Rocket's cell. [[SupremeChef And he's very good at it.]]
* TeamMom: Named as such in-universe.

!![[spoiler: Cosplay Pikachu]]
A reward to Jessie from Wallace after she impressed him with her comedic appeal.
-----
* {{Cosplay}}: [[spoiler:She has a lot of costumes to say the least]].
** ClothesMakeTheSuperman: [[spoiler:And just like in the games, wearing a costume gives her an associated new move that she normally cannot learn - that immediately disappears once it's taken off.]]
* GenkiGirl: She's rather energetic.
* {{Irony}}: After years and years of hunting, over six hundred attempts to ambush Ash, thousands of schemes, time travel, and the collection of a [[spoiler:Legendary Pokémon]], Team Rocket... [[spoiler:has a Pikachu. And they didn't even have to steal her or catch her or whatever -- she was a gift from Wallace]].

!!Chimecho
-----
* TheDitz: So much so, that even when its PokemonSpeak is translated, it's ''still'' saying its own name.
* LiteralMinded: Overhears a comment about Meowth having a "big mouth", and thus starts measuring the mouths of the other Team Rocket Pokemon for comparison.
* PokemonSpeak: It talks like this even when translated.

!!Team Rocket

[[folder:Tropes that apply to the organization as a whole]]
* EvilVersusOblivion: While Team Rocket still seeks control by all means in this timeline, it ''DOES NOT'' dabble in methods that result in massive collateral damage, societal collapse, or the universe itself being screwed up, and the reason is that you can't rule or make a profit in a destroyed world. As such, Giovanni would send his Rocket Executives (namely the Rocket Trio) to disaster areas not only to [[VillainWithGoodPublicity gather good PR]] but to eliminate threats to his ultimate plans, which of course results in said Executives aiding Ash and Co.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: All Rocket agents are under direct orders to avoid [[TheDreaded Ash]] even if it'll cost a mission. Jessie and James even make it a point by giving lectures and classes on how to deal with situations that involve Ash. Their advice: ''stay away from him''.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Unlike the original timeline, Giovanni plans to make his organization so beloved and ingratiated with the populace that they'll happily allow them the influence over them he seeks.
* RightHandVersusLeftHand: Giovanni outright states that some Rocket cell plots will come into conflict with each other, but he says that the more short-term plots will have to be sacrificed for the team as a whole.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: What Giovanni wants his organization to become as a whole, so the entire populace won't question them if they decide to take over. A lot of the Rocket Trio's missions are basically PR work intended to make Team Rocket look good.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Giovanni]]
The boss of the criminal Team Rocket organization and the Rocket Trio's (Jessie, James, and Meowth) direct superior.
-----
* AdaptationalHeroism: In a sense. Giovanni is still a ruthless, power-hungry crime boss with designs on controlling the world, but here it's emphasized that he understands there are different ''kinds'' of control - and he's especially interested in controlling the world through [[HundredPercentAdorationRating making himself and his organization so beloved and ingratiated with the populace that they'll happily allow him the influence over them he seeks.]] As a result, he focuses on keeping the Rockets' criminal side as secret as possible while devoting a lot of energy into world-saving and seemingly altruistic matters. The different ways incidents like Mewtwo's birth unfold further convince him that large-scale megalomaniacal efforts aren't worth the hassle, leaving him much less interested in them.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: If Jessie and James catching a Relicanth for his mother in any indication, Giovanni seems close to said mother, despite his criminal activities.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: What angered Giovanni concerning Vicious' little time travel plot to usurp him as boss of Team Rocket in the ''Voice of the Forest'' arc was not the attempted coup itself; ''it was the possibility that he might've not met his beloved Persian''. Say what you want about Giovanni, but there is no doubt that he is intensely devoted to his partner.
** And unlike Giovanni from the original timeline, this Giovanni [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas loves his mother]] despite his partaking in criminal activities.
* GeoEffects: Rather apropos, his battle specialty is terrain control. His Pokémon are very experienced in controlling the battlefield or making their own terrain and modifying it to their advantage.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He quickly realizes that Ash is way out of his league, so he makes it a point for all Rocket agents to avoid the kid whenever possible. He'll even accept mission failure if the reason involves Ash.
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: [[spoiler:After Vicious (the Iron-Masked Marauder) is captured and thrown in prison, Giovanni makes sure he dies of "natural causes" - namely, a stroke via his Persian's [[PsychicSurgery Shadow Claw]]]].
* PetTheDog: His treatment of the Rocket Trio (at least in this timeline) has shades of this.
* PragmaticVillainy: The reason why the department the trio is in exists, as you can't rule and/or extort the world ''if there is no world''. WordOfGod was that Operation Tempest in the original timeline was a desperation move, as he didn't see enough heroes to deal with the recent disasters. In this timeline, knowledge of Ash and Wes means he won't even think about it.
** [[spoiler:He immediately punishes Annie and Oakley by subjecting them to {{Yubitsume}}, demoting them to grunt work, and banning them from the use of Pokémon after the events of the ''Heroes'' movie. Their little scheme, which was heavily implied to be unauthorized judging by the language Giovanni used in his conversation with them, nearly undid all the PR work the trio have been doing since the time travel -- he only managed to salvage the damage by sending the trio to be visibly seen in stopping the crisis]].
** Also, his opinion on attempts to reshape reality (via legendary Pokémon or otherwise) is incredibly low.
-->'''Giovanni''': Useful, I'll admit, but far too flashy -- and dangerous to acquire. And Team Rocket does not like risk. Agents risk, the Team endures.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly enough, yes. He's harsh but he'll tolerate failure if there is a legitimately good reason for it. He let Cassidy and Butch's ditching an operation slide because it would've pitted them up against Ash, someone he ''knows'' was completely out of their league.
* RightHandCat: His Persian. His starter, most loyal companion, and someone he'd kill for.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: He demands that James turn over his Arcanine, Growlie, because it is a rare and powerful Pokémon. When James refuses, he reveals that it was a test and promptly ''promotes'' the trio.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: He has a Kangaskhan and the associated Kangaskhanite.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: Tends to give off this vibe at times -- ironically, some of the only ones he ''doesn't'' regard as idiots (to some degree) are the main trio, who he sees as [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric, but nonetheless extremely competent]].
* {{Yakuza}}: Par the course. [[spoiler:His punishment for Annie and Oakley includes complete {{Yubitsume}} on top of demotion and a Pokémon ban]].
* YouHaveFailedMe: Most of the movie villains that were Rocket-affiliated are revealed to be rogues or overenthusiastic agents who ultimately screwed up his master plans. In such situations, he tends to take care of them himself. It's rarely pretty.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vicious/The Iron-Masked Marauder]]
A member of Team Rocket and the BigBad of the ''[[Anime/Pokemon4Ever Voice of the Forest]]'' arc.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: A villainous example. He took advantage of Giovanni sending a squad of Rockets after him early to 'acquire' some of their Pokémon via Dark Ball. [[spoiler:And then he manages to get ''[[OhCrap Pikachu]]'' in one...]]
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: What his Dark Balls do to Pokémon; they forcibly turn them into Shadow Pokémon. They can even capture registered Pokémon and [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turn them against their trainers]].
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Ultimately the person who does him in is Giovanni, the same man he tried to overthrow, who has his Persian "[[PsychicSurgery fix things]]" so Vicious will, ahem, [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident die of natural causes]]]].
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: [[spoiler:He dies in prison from a stroke, which was engineered by Giovanni and done by his Persian's [[PsychicSurgery Shadow Claw]]]].
* MeaningfulName: A ''vicious'' rogue Team Rocket agent who treats his own Pokémon like crap [[spoiler:and is willing to use them like disposable tools in his bid to usurp Giovanni as head of Team Rocket]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler: His Croconaw starter sometime in his journey. Which gives you an idea of how much of a bastard this guy was.]]
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:All of the shenanigans he was doing in his arc was an attempt to usurp Giovanni as head of Team Rocket]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Annie and Oakley]]
A duo of Team Rocket agents who both make up the BigBad of the ''Heroes'' arc.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the original movie, they had an Espeon and an Ariados. This time, both of them come loaded with full teams of 6. Not that it helps them in the end.
* EpicFail: Oakley's attempts to [[spoiler: Mega Evolve her Beedrill]].
* {{Yubitsume}}: [[spoiler:In addition to demoting them to grunts and banning them from using Pokémon, Giovanni subjects Annie and Oakley to this trope when their plans (which going by Giovanni's wording were heavily implied to be unauthorized) nearly led to the undoing of all the Rocket Trio's PR activities since the time travel]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Butch and Cassidy]]
-----
* ButtMonkey: In the Kanto chapters, they took the place of the [=TRio=] as the Rockets who would tried to interfere with the heroes only to get horribly humiliated by them in some way (usually unwittingly, and due to both Ash and Co. ''and'' the [=TRio=]). Even when they get stronger Pokémon to face off against Ash during the Lake of Rage incident, they are still soundly beaten, much to their shock.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Their response to seeing (and recognizing) Ash showing up to one of their scams is to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere immediately skedaddle out of the area]]. Giovanni actually praises them for it, given how Ash has proven himself to be ''quite'' the threat.
* OutOfFocus: Post-Johto, they don't show up as much, reflecting how they've practically disappeared from the anime since the end of Johto.
* TheResenter: It's subtle, especially since they don't appear very often, but it seems and Butch and Cassidy are slightly resentful of how the [=TRio=] are executives (on the lowest rung, but still), while they're still (technically) only high-level grunts. They have access to strong Pokémon and control over many low-level operations, but they don't have the freedom and trust Jessie, James, and co. all enjoy.

!!Meanwhile in Pallet Town

[[folder:Professor Samuel Oak]]
Ash's main regional professor, who is no stranger to TimeTravel. His memories are also restored, and he aids Ash through his research and caring for his other Pokémon on his ranch.
-----
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Besides researching, he looks after the Pokémon living in his ranch, but sometimes he becomes the butt of their hijinks. ''Especially'' if said Pokémon belong to Ash.
* ButtMonkey: Professor Oak may be a world-renowned Pokémon professor, but that doesn't stop him from being the butt of many a Pokémon's hijinks, especially when they're Ash's.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: The first thing he does when Ash tells him of Celebi and time travel is to grab his hip flask.
* MayflyDecemberFriendship: Turns out this is the reason his Charizard decided to retire to the Charicific Valley - they had lived through the death of Oak's old Arcanine, and knowing how long Charizards live, he didn't want to live through Oak's death as well. It takes a talk with Ash's own Charizard to encourage him to visit the ranch once more.
** His Dragonite has it worse though, since they live even ''longer''.
* QuickNip: Reaches for his hip flask when Ash explains the plot.
* RetiredBadass: He's a former Pokémon League Champion. As Ash idly notes to the bug-using samurai in the Viridian Forest, he'd like to believe that he's the strongest trainer from Pallet Town, but since Professor Oak lives there...
** In a later chapter, Butch and Cassidy have to dissuade a group of Rocket grunts from attacking Oak's Ranch, saying it's one of the hardest targets in the country, and say that Oak lives there as the first reason. The others being Gary and Ash have their Pokémon there (and Molly visits often, in company of [[spoiler:the shiny Beasts]]) - then Ho-oh flies over the place.
* SapientHouse[=/=]SmartHouse: Thanks to Oak's Porygon Damos connecting with the ranch's computer system, the Oak Ranch itself can be considered as such. Translated Poké-speech even appears on screens in the building!
* SoProudOfYou: To Gary, for managing to get his research on the cover of ''Pokémon'' journal at an incredibly young age (even with the time travel).
* StableTimeLoop: It's revealed at the beginning of the story that Professor Oak giving Pikachu to Ash as a starter was planned, because during the ''Voice of the Forest'' arc, he had met Ash and Pikachu as a child when he time-traveled with Celebi. Despite Pikachu being disobedient when he and Ash met the first time around, Professor Oak gave him to Ash because he knew from his first encounter with them that they would eventually get along.

[[folder:Delia Ketchum]]
Ash's mother, who dotes on her son and constantly worries for his safety. This worry only grows tenfold after her memories are restored and she learns about all of her son's world-saving adventures.
-----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Every time Ash finishes a League, Delia commissions a custom badge for her son that commemorates it. So far she's given out:
** An indigo flower for the Indigo League.
** An orange blossom for the Orange League.
** A silver crescent moon for the Silver Conference.
** A comet for [[spoiler: the Delta Episode]].
** A pyramid for the Battle Frontier.
* CrazyPrepared: Has packed a few esoteric items into Ash's BagOfHolding, including a fireproof outfit and a ''dress''. The latter is due to the [[{{Crossdresser}} Ashley]] incident that Brock once told her about.
* [[NoBadassToHisValet No Champion To His Mother]]: As far as Ash is concerned. It doesn't matter how many Leagues he wins or how many Legendaries he has, if he doesn't come home to visit his mother every once in a while, she ''will'' track him down and she ''will'' let him have it.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Understandably decides not to got to Greenfield for obvious reasons. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom However, this caused the Unown to go off the script, with massive consequences for everyone]].
** And when she sees via TV the events, she's painfully aware of it...

* {{Sidekick}}: Meets a Sneasel that decides to act as his photography assistant.
* TheWorldIsJustAwesome: He gets the opportunity to take pictures of some ''breathtaking'' scenes, including migrating Pokémon photos from a microlight, and [[spoiler: even the courting and ''birth'' of Legendary Pokémon]].
* UnfazedEveryman: Is ''trying'' to be this with regards to Ash's inexplicable connection to Legendaries, but isn't quite there yet.

* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler:To Brock from the original timeline. A FreakLabAccident involving the Unown sent her to a pocket dimension where she remained trapped, a fate that Brock was unable to save her from. This was the reason why Brock had [[MyGreatestFailure extreme negative reactions]] to hearing Ivy's name. But thanks to Ash's TimeTravel, Brock averts this by using his foreknowledge to save Ivy]].
* NoodleIncident: She somehow got her lab CoveredInMud during an experiment to test Diglett's sensitivity to ultrasonics.

* HeroOfAnotherStory[=/=]TheChosenOne: Was destiny-entangled with Ash, meaning that he was fated to catch similar Pokémon and go on just as many world-changing adventures as Ash himself. This is now broken though, and the differences between the two are becoming more prominent (though he still gets into just as many adventures).
* MirrorBoss: His and Ash's battle at the Indigo League is reminiscent of this; WordOfGod says he was going for a "distorted mirror match", where the two use Pokémon that are similar but different.
** His Ralts, Cid, helps him with his psychic potential, just like Ash and Riolu.
** His Spearow, Nagi, is agile and supersonic in bursts, unlike Pidgeot who is just plain fast.
** His Eevee, a Pokémon with a great deal of adaptability, just like Dexter. Both are also the OddNameOut of their teams, in that Eevee doesn't have a nickname but Dexter does.
* IdenticalStranger: To Ash, even sharing similar {{Punny Name}}s. Many people have mistaken him for Ash on several occasions.
* PsychicPowers: Unlocked his psychic potential thanks to his Ralts (now Gallade), just as Ash was helped with his Aura by Riolu, and Sparky has learned some Psychic tricks as well.
* ShapingYourAttacks: His now-Raichu Sparky can use psychic shaping on his electricity to form [[WhipItGood electro-whips]] and other electric weapons.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: By the Ever Grande Conference, his now-Gallade Cid has Galladite and can Mega Evolve with it.]]
* TheNicknamer: Almost all his Pokémon have one.
* TimeTravel: Has had more than a few run-ins with Celebi. As such, [[SeenItAll he's unfazed when Ash tells him about his mission from the future.]]
* WeirdnessMagnet: Just like Ash.

[[folder:Casey Nanako]]
A beginner trainer from New Bark that Ash befriended. Her team consists mostly of yellow-and-black Pokémon as a reference to the Electabuzz baseball team.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: She successfully uses the FEAR strategy to defeat Ash's ''Charizard'', and later during the Silver Conference, puts up a good fight against Ash.
** [[spoiler: Later chapters show that she's attracted the attention of a Zapdos]].
* AttackPatternAlpha: Rarely calls attacks. Instead, she uses baseball references to call tactical plans.
* CrazyPrepared: Has trained her Pokemon specifically on how to fight Ash's Charizard.
* DavidVsGoliath: Her Pokémon are trained to fight Pokémon way more powerful than them, including specifically Ash's Charizard.
* EngineeredHeroics: [[spoiler: The Zapdos following her does this to impress her]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:As of Chapter 179, she's acquired a Key Stone to work with the Beedrillite that Ash gave her.]]
* TranslatorBuddy: [[spoiler: Riolu]] serves as one.
* WeakButSkilled: Basically her thing. Her Pokémon don't have anything like the raw power of Ash's team, but they are very very good at rendering raw power worthless. Notably, her Meganium disables Charizard with a long-range vine grapple, keeping him from taking off, moving quickly, or using breath attacks via joint locks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Molly Hale and her Eevee]]
Childhood friend of the Ketchums, Molly used the power of the Unown to call from copies of Entei, Scuicune, and Raikou to keep her company, alongside Pokémon copies of her own to battle with. After the events at Greenfield, the three beasts and her Eevee were turned into real Pokémon, but Shiny. As of now, she is travelling through Sinnoh with Gary as her mentor.
-----
* AchievementsInIgnorance: The reason her Eevee can switch forms at the drop of a hat is that Molly misunderstood how Eevee's branching evolution worked in the first place.
* BadassAdorable: Molly displays potential in becoming a successful Pokémon trainer during her battles with Misty and Brock, and manages to complete her trainer license by the end of the Hoenn arc.
* BecomeARealBoy: Eevee turns into a real (shiny) Eevee thanks to a little help from Mewtwo.
* {{Expy}}: Eevee shares the same shapeshifting powers as [[Manga/PokemonSpecial Vee]].
* GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: Eevee started out more like the other Pokemon the Unown created for Molly to battle with, but a number of factors led to her becoming more similar to the Unown spawned Beasts.
* MultiformBalance: Eevee can turn into any of her evolutions at any time. Even Sylveon, which until the CosmicRetcon following 4Ever, didn't even have an official type. [[spoiler:In fact, Sylveon is the ''reason'' why the CosmicRetcon created the Fairy type in the first place, as due to a TimeCrash, she was present at the creation of the world and Arceus decided to do a SureLetsGoWithThat]].
* {{Omniglot}}: As a result of her encounter with the Unown, Molly can speak Pokémon like Ash and co. can, except she hasn't had any aura training. Seeing as the incident that caused this was potentially life-scarring, her parents are content that ''this'' was the only side effect that directly affected her.

[[folder:Lance]]
A dragon tamer of the Blackthorn Clan, and the current Grand Champion of the Kanto and Johto Leagues. Lance functions as the leader of the Elite Four and of the G-Men, a local peacekeeping force that intervenes in crises across both regions. As of late, however, he's beginning to notice that a certain ''someone'' has been taking care of things before he can get involved.
-----
* BadassCape: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Which baby dragon Pokémon that he raises for the League tend to chew on]].
* BigGood: For Kanto and Johto.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: Was the one who nominated [[spoiler: Misty for the Elite Four]].
* TheDreaded: Giovanni makes a point to avoid him.
* HeroicBSOD: Comedic version, where he is outright shocked to learn that [[spoiler:Molly Hale, ''an eight year old girl'', is responsible for the creation of the Fairy-type, the absolute bane of a dragon tamer such as Lance]].
* PassingTheTorch: A variation - he was both a member of the Elite Four and its Grand Champion, but passed his Elite Four position to Karen after the Silver Conference, becoming Grand Champion ''only''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Sensational Sisters (Daisy, Lily, and Violet Waterflower)]]

This is seen during Max's gym battle with them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Norman Maple]]
The father of May and Max Maple, and the Petalburg City Gym Leader who specializes in Normal-types.

* GoodParents: Really loves his kids and immediately notices when something might be wrong, even if it's just Max failing a test.
* HandicappedBadass: His deaf Exploud that has to be given commands with sign language.
* SeenItAll: He gave up being surprised around when he learned about [[spoiler:the Fairy-type being a result of CosmicRetcon.]]
* SignatureMove: Façade, as in the original Ruby and Sapphire games, and it's actually stated as such in-universe.
* SoProudOfYou: Both of his children have earned the Balance Badge and he could not be happier about it. With Max, the conversation even mirrors his game dialogue.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Borrowed Max's Key Stone and the Lopunnite that Gary found to Mega Evolve his Lopunny.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Drew]]
May's contest rival, who was reminded of the old timeline by Ash.
-----
* AscendedExtra: Plays a bigger role in the Anime/PokemonDestinyDeoxys movie, which makes perfect sense, since he's from [=LaRousse=] City.
* KidFromTheFuture: After being reminded, he caught an Eevee, which evolved into a Leafeon, which had an egg [[spoiler: that turned out to be May's Glaceon.]]
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: His Butterfree [[spoiler:is one of Ash's Butterfree's children.]]
* OneSteveLimit: It's been lampshaded several times that a few of his Pokémon (Absol, Flygon, Butterfree) are Pokémon Ash and Co. already have.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:N]]
The King of Team Plasma, groomed to be the Hero of Truth by his adoptive father Ghestis so that he can gain the loyalty of Reshiram and separate humans and Pokémon. This has changed after observing so much of the world, and he now has gone off on his own to discover the real truth.
-----
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Has gone off with his sisters Anthea and Concordia, his Zorua and Reshiram to figure out the real truth of the world.
* HopelessWithTech: His sheltered upbringing as well as his father's teachings meant that he knows very little about how to use Poké-balls, which becomes a point when [[spoiler: Reshiram asks for one]].
* OverlyLongName: Natural Harmonia Gropius.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Flies away from Team Plasma after [[LivingLieDetector Reshiram]] detects and reveals all of Ghestis's lies.

-----
* AuraVision: Rui's ability to find Shadow Pokemon is confirmed to be Aura based.
* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: They can't be bothered to stop bicker-flirting while Wes's Metagross wipes the floor with Cipher Grunts.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Have fought Cipher many times before, and Rui mentions Michael, the protagonist of "Gale of Darkness" at one point.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Barry]]
A very excitable beginner trainer from Twinleaf Town that Dawn knows.
-----
* ArtAttacker: How his Smeargle uses his Sketched moves: drawing art in mid-air that transforms into that move.
* BigOlEyebrows: His Smeargle has a very expressive face. If even that doesn't work, he [[TalkingWithSigns Talks With Signs]].
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: All his Pokémon seem to be this for him.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: With his obtaining of a Smeargle, he's decided to collect rare Pokémon moves, like very powerful autographs.
* {{Keet}}: Like stated above, very excitable.
* MidBattleTeaBreak: Smeargle stops a battle because Barry keeps telling him to use moves he doesn't have yet.
* MotorMouth: Seriously, the guy will not shut up for anything.
* WildMassGuessing: Indulges in this ''a lot'', mostly revolving around Ash and a lot of stuff he reads online. Lately it's veered into outright ConspiracyTheorist levels.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Paul]]
A very intense trainer that Ash first met in Sinnoh.
-----
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Even if he doesn't call them that directly, he obviously disdains those who have taken Ash's offer of reminding as having taken the easy way out.
* DiscardAndDraw: Ash convinves a ChallengeSeeker Cranidos to join his team in place of Chimchar/Infernape.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Well, sort of. His reaction to finding out he sent out Chimchar against Garchomp despite the type disadvantage is wondering what possessed him to do that in the previous timeline.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: The case of the ChallengeSeeker Cranidos that Ash finds for him in exchange for Chimchar.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even if he respects Ash for all his accomplishments, that doesn't change the fact that he's a git.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Ash told him he could be reminded of the previous timeline, but he refused, declaring it as too much of a shortcut.
* TheComicallySerious: His recent scenes of being a Tag Battle partner with ''Mawile'' and battling against the MotorMouth Barry place him in this role.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Zoey]]
A Coordinator from Sinnoh, and Dawn's primary rival. She was working with Gary to free the Lake Guardians when the previous timeline ended.
-----
* TheCallPutMeOnHold: Ash was initially unable to remind her, despite Zoey being more than qualified, [[spoiler: due to being at the epicenter of the original timeline's collapse]]. It took the aid of the Lake Guardians and Jirachi to get it right.
* CurbStompBattle: Dawn beats her pretty easily in a Contest battle, though Zoey hadn't been reminded at the time.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler: Fought alongside Gary in the old timeline to try and stop Cyrus and save the Lake Trio]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cynthia]]
The current Grand Champion of the Sinnoh League. Ash meets her during his Sinnoh journey, and finds out she can be reminded of the old timeline.

[[spoiler: See Ash's Pokémon]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mew]]
The Mew who fought Mewtwo in the first movie. Has reappeared several times since.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Very much so.
* BadassAdorable: Held his/her own against ''Mewtwo''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Is normally a complete goofball with no attention span. When he/she actually takes things seriously, Mewtwo gets a workout.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Uses this to go wherever he/she wants.
* TimeTravel: Can do this by Transforming into a Celebi, though a real Celebi showed up to stop him/her.

-----
* BadPowersGoodPeople: After being un-Shadowed, she still has Shadow Blast, apparently as a means of purging any residual Shadow energy.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Very temporarily.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:She kept firing Shadow Blast to full effect during the Delta Episode after others started weakening]].
* EvilIsNotAToy: Dr. Namba and Cipher tried to enhance the Shadowification process with an ancient artifact. The result was a completely out-of-control Shadow Lugia.

The three birds from the ''Anime/Pokemon2000 movie''. Lugia has to keep them in line.
-----
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: [[spoiler: To Silver, at Lugia's request]]
* BlackSheep: Most Legendary Bird Trios work with their respective Lugia. These three try to kill him on occasion.
** Later chapters reveal that their behavior has made them rather infamous among other groups of Legendary Birds.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: At one point it is suggested that part of the reason for their behavior is the fact that they're mostly alone on their islands.
* ItsAllAboutMe: All three want to take over the islands, regardless of the catastrophe that would result, or if they have bigger problems.
* ManChild: All of them are remarkably immature. Lampshaded when Lugia remarks that even ''Silver'' is better behaved than them.

[[folder:The Greenfield/Shiny Johto Beast Trio (Raikou, Entei and Suicine)]]
The Beast Trio [[Anime/Pokemon3 created by the Unown and Molly Hale]] to fight Ash and co., made real by Mewtwo.
-----
* BecomeARealBoy: Thanks to Mewtwo.
* MundaneUtility: The Entei avoids flossing by incinerating anything that can't stand volcanic heat in his mouth.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Were created to fill the roles of a Nuclear Family, as opposed to being resurrected as siblings like most Beast Trios.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Planned to visit Molly when she was away, but didn't talk about it with each other, so they all visited at once.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Entei vanishes along with the Unown in canon. Raikou and Suicine never existed there.
* UnskilledButStrong: Are every bit as powerful (if not more) as the original Beast Trio, but have no combat experience. This lets the originals mop the floor with them.
* WalkingSpoiler: Even mentioning that this Raikou and Suicine EXIST spoils the climax of the Third Movie Arc.

[[folder:Swords of Justice (Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Keldeo)]]

[[folder:Lake Guardians (Mesprit, Uxie, Azelf)]]
A group of Legendary Pokémon from Sinnoh, representing emotion, knowledge and willpower, respectively.

Mesprit first appeared during the Delta Episode, when it was awakened by Dawn and Barry, and it and its two companions got Kyogre to create a rainstorm that deflected the heat pulse from meteor debris hitting the atmosphere. It has taken an interest in Dawn.

They start making more frequent appearances in Sinnoh, where it's revealed that they are responsible for [[PeggySue Ash]] being able to remind people and Pokémon of the previous timeline.
* AmbiguousGender: Suicine says that they only say that it's obvious whenever someone asks about it, so she just uses they/the, pronouns to describe them.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Deoxys-Blue]]
A Deoxys who had been in hibernation within the meteor from the Delta Episode, and was completely unaware that it was on a collision course with an inhabited planet until after the meteor was destroyed. As community service, it joined a company to assist with space travel and exploration.

!!Meanwhile with Arceus

[[folder:Arceus]]
The Creator of the Pokémon universe. Due to Cyrus' plot succeeding, he and Sir Aaron are trapped in a pocket dimension, and it is because of Arceus that Ash received the opportunity to be trained in Aura by Sir Aaron and the one who gave Ash his mission to stop Cyrus via time travel.
-----
* BigGood: Of the entire Pokémon universe. He did create it after all...
* TheChooserOfTheOne: Certainly has the authority to do so. Other Legendaries mention how he chose Ash as his champion when explaining things to others, so there's that.
* KingOfAllCosmos: He's not exactly all there.
* MissionFromGod: InvertedTrope. He's God and thus is the one who gave Ash the mission.
* ObviousRulePatch: Often has to do this when Aaron and the Creation Trio find a loophole.
* RealityWarper: Creates pocket realities for Aaron and Creation Dragons to pass the time until Ash saves the world.
* SureLetsGoWithThat: [[spoiler:How the Fairy-type came into existence, thanks to a ''Sylveon'' (Molly's Eevee) being present at the creation of the world]]. It utterly baffles Norman when he hears about it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sir Aaron]]
Master of Aura and is currently Arceus' roommate in the pocket dimension they are trapped in.
-----
* BackFromTheDead: Sort of. He's in a pocket dimension but he is by definition dead.
* BalefulPolymorph: In typical fashion, when Arceus creates the Mystery Dungeon verse he becomes a Riolu.
* OnlySaneMan: Of the pocket dimension inhabitants.
* TokenHuman: Trapped inside the pocket dimension with Arceus and the second Creation Trio as the only human.

* OhCrap: Their reaction when they learn about the Fairy-Type being completely immune to the Dragon-Type.
** Dialga is very relieved to learn that the Fairy-Type is vulnerable to the Steel-type.

!!The original Trio and their Pokémon

[[folder:Tropes that apply to all three of them]]
* AdaptationalBadass: They (and their Pokémon) are a ''lot'' more powerful and capable than their incarnations from the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} original timeline]].
** Ash, obviously, is the most notable of them; not only does he become at least as masterful in Aura as Sir Aaron was (though that does take a while), he learns how to understand Pokémon speech, catches Ho-Oh (at the latter's request), and solves most of the problems they came across the previous time with a lot less difficulty. And that's just the stuff that ISN'T SpoileredRotten.
** Misty establishes this throughout the story, especially the couple of times that she faces Ash in a serious battle; she nearly defeats him in Cerulean [[spoiler:and does defeat him in the Whirl Cup, [[StunnedSilence to everyone's astonishment]]]], and she manages to fight [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} Molly's]] superpowerful Unown-created Pokémon to more-or-less a draw. But it's cemented beyond any doubt when halfway through the Johto region, she receives a notice that she's up for consideration to replace ''[[spoiler:Lorelei of the Elite Four]]''. She took up the challenge, '''''and succeeded'''''. Even better, we don't even know which one she replaced [[spoiler:Lorelei, Agatha, ''and'' Lance all stepped down for various reasons, and thus three of the trainers that took the challenge (one being Misty, the other two being the canonical Karen and Will) were admitted into the group]]. And that's not even getting into her team.
** Brock is as skilled as ever, but it's shown most during the Orange Islands. In an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, Brock fought off a bunch of Unown... with a [[VideoGame/HalfLife crowbar]]. [[spoiler:That later results in him commencing a serious romance with Professor Ivy, which is still going even now]]. Again, not even getting into his team...though on the note of said team, a running joke is that he's a Rock-Type expert that only has a single Rock-Type (Onix having lost its Rock-Type when it evolved into Steelix, leaving only Geodude). He eventually relinquishes that title for saying he's an expert in unpredictability instead, [[spoiler:due to his Pokémon capable of using illusions, such as Ninetales and Stantler]].
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: All of them, due to Ash being a walking WeirdnessMagnet. People are shocked when things happen and Ash and his friends don't even bat an eye. To them, it might as well be a morning routine.
* SeenItAll: After seeing Legendaries and going through potentially world-breaking adventures in the original timeline, nothing surprises Ash and friends anymore. The fact that they don't move an eyelid to what's going on tends to shock those who aren't used
Due to the sheer level of weirdness they go through.
* TrueCompanions: Ash, Misty, and Brock were pretty close friends in
LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, the original timeline, but they become even more so after Ash [[TimeTravel travels back through time]] and restores Misty and Brock's memories of him. Of course, the trope extends to the trio's other traveling companions, [[HonoraryTrueCompanion including the Rocket Trio]].

* TheChosenOne: It's ''hereditary'', according to Sir Aaron's Lucario.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: For once, Ash's eccentricity is noted and lampshaded.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman[=/=]MySuitIsAlsoSuper: Sir Aaron's Aura Guardian outfit and equipment, when empowered with Ash's similar-resonating Aura, grant its wearer certain powers.
** CoolHat: Sir Aaron's hat, which not only is cool but grants the wearer the Dark-Type, thus making them [[NoSell immune]] to all psychic powers.
** TrickedOutShoes: His boots make him lighter, enabling him to [[SuperSpeed run faster]], [[InASingleBound jump higher]], and even [[WallCrawl walk on walls]].
** BadassCape: His cape allows for a steady recharge of aura, and will even [[LoyalPhlebotinum interfere with the aura of anyone who tries to steal it]].
** TrickedOutGloves: His jeweled gloves act as an aura focus, allowing greater precision and increasing his aura reserves.
** His pouch is basically a BagOfHolding. It's gotten to the point he needs ''shelving'' inside it.
** SimpleStaff[=/=]MagicStaff: Sir Aaron's, and now Ash's, basic WeaponOfChoice. [[spoiler: Combining it with Lugia and Ho-Oh's feathers turns it into his Key Stone.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Ash's amazing battle talent and ingenuity is very much noted, alongside his IdiotHero tendencies.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler: Secret Sword is a lot more Aura-intensive than most of his other moves; one use of it practically killed him.]]
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:His father died breaking a tidal wave that was threatening the residents of Pacifidlog]].
* DorkKnight: Incredibly strong sense of morals, a good fighter, friendly, and a bit of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, Ash certainly fits the bill. Bonus points for [[spoiler: being an actual knight]].
* TheDreaded:
** Is gradually becoming this after becoming Indigo League Champion. Comically, he's also this to gym leaders due to his gym-destroying reputation, with several point-blank refusing to battle him within their respective gyms. His return to Kanto to challenge the Battle Frontier sparked minor panic during a Gym Leader meeting, with their newest Gym Leader inquiring about getting some reinforced steel to help deal with the potential damage.
** Giovanni is willing to take on ''[[OlympusMons Mewtwo]]'', but not Ash. When Ash returned to his gym during the Battle Frontier arc so Max could challenge him for the Earth Badge, Giovanni had a Golurk on hand to teleport him away just in case he and Ash got off the wrong foot. He also immediately shifted his gaze away from Ash the moment he saw Pikachu's cheeks spark slightly.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Zigzagged. After becoming Indigo League Champion, Ash garners a lot of respect, and a lot of people ''do'' fear battling him. But his eccentric, borderline insane behavior, combined with his Pokémon's tendency to do the impossible[[note]]which is ''routine'' in Squirtle's case[[/note]], means they have issues taking him seriously.
* DungeonBypass: Ash tends to do this a lot, and the two main contributors to this tripe is his possession of various Pokémon (including the Legendaries), and his future knowledge. For example, in one of the Orange League gyms, one of the challenges is a race. While it's implied that you're supposed to use a water type, Ash instead uses his Pidgeot... which is capable of supersonic travel. [[ObviousRulePatch The Gym Leader in charge of said race vows to specifically require the use of a Water-type in the future]].
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Takes advantage of his Aura potential this time around. It allows him to restore his Pokémon's memories, making many of his earlier battles easier. It also allows him to communicate with ''all'' Pokémon, and use Pokémon attacks.
* FamedInStory: Actually won the Indigo League this time around, meaning his reputation is incredibly well-known. Although, said {{Cloudcuckoolander}} traits above mean that people have a hard time taking him seriously.
* FlatWhat: Gives one [[spoiler:in response to James' Moltres costume causing a chain of events that led to the Rocket Trio ''accidentally capturing a'' '''''real''''' ''Moltres'']].
* HeroicLineage: Is directly descended from Sir Aaron through his father's side.
* HumbleHero: Almost always acts like one, to the point that he absolutely refuses to use his [[FanNickname Legendary Big Three]] except on special occasions such as [[spoiler:'''''exhibition matches with the Elite Four''''']]. Ho-Oh eventually had to call him out on it, stating that while they ''get'' that he doesn't want to seem privileged, there are ''limits''.
** He does have a reason for doing this, though - he did lose a conference because of Tobias, who steamrolled other teams using a friggin' ''Darkrai'' and a Latios, and doesn't want to be like him at all.
** Ironically, when Ash seemingly ''isn't'' this, it's because he doesn't realize how bizarre and/or special the things that happen to him on a regular basis actually are. For example, Ash was calling out a Team Rocket Executive during the Lake of Rage Incident on forcibly evolving Pokémon, stating that evolving one wasn't that hard -- only for Brock to point out that it actually takes a normal Pokémon trainer ''years'' to make that happen.
* IdiotHero: He's more than capable as a Pokémon trainer, but outside of that, he can be rather ''dense''.
* IndyPloy: Very good at adjusting his battle strategy when things go south, and tends to teach his Pokemon new moves (or have them discover them themselves) ''during'' battles.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Can instigate these with a technique called Aura Purge.
* KungFuWizard: Due to his training in Aura, Ash can use Pokémon attacks, most of which falls into either this trope or FullContactMagic.
* LamePunReaction: In Chapter 2, right after Ash and Misty are visited by the Legendary Ho-oh, Misty notices that it left behind one of its feathers... and a bag of Sacred Ash. Misty notes the irony, prompting this reaction from Ash.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Both Ash and his father had NoSenseOfDirection, it seems.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: Gyms, in his case. Ash has accidentally destroyed (or at least badly damaged) several gyms in three out of four regions he's traveled in. Fortunately, after realizing the trend, he attempts to avert this, including reporting on radio that he doesn't mind having his gym battles outside. His record of damaged or destroyed gyms is:
** Kanto: Cerulean, Vermilion, Celadon, Fuchsia, Viridian.
*** Kanto Battle Frontier Facilities: Arena, Dome, Pike Tent.
** Orange Islands: Kumquat and Pummelo.
** Johto: Goldenrod, Cianwood and Olivine. The former two were also heavily damaged by their own gym leader's Pokémon. In addition, Blackthorn Gym was badly damaged by Raikou (who would be caught by Ash soon after), who had just earned his own Rising Badge before Ash even arrived.
** Hoenn: None. Ash has made it his goal to pass ''this'' gym challenge without breaking a single gym, and has pretty much succeeded. Though he did do significant damage to a playground while battling Norman, the outdoor battlefield while battling Tate and Liza, and the majority of damage done to the Sootopolis Gym was Wallace's doing.
*** Though given the fact that Ash's evolution aura caused the gym's Wailmer population to all spontaneously evolve and bring down a gym wall (after the battle and after Ash and Co. had left), there is some argument to saying he failed, even if Wallace admits he cannot link the incident back to Ash.
** Sinnoh: Oreburgh, Pastoria.
* MagicKnight: When he uses Pokémon attacks and breaks out his staff or sword.
* MissionFromGod: Sent back in time on the behalf of Arceus to prevent Cyrus from destroying reality.
* MyGreatestFailure: It's made pretty clear that he never really forgave himself for Latios' death...
** MyGreatestSecondChance: [[spoiler:...which makes his survival in the new timeline all the more sweeter.]]
* NoSenseOfDirection: If it wasn't for Dexter, with Ash leading them, he and his friends would get lost in totally different ways than they got lost the first time around.
* {{Omniglot}}: Thanks to Ash being an Aura user, he can talk with Pokémon.
* OrnamentalWeapon: Gets a ceremonial, but non-functional sword when he is knighted for saving the Togepi Kingdom. [[spoiler: Subverted as it actually becomes his focus for Sacred/Secret Sword, and later, ''an actual Honedge'']].
* PercussiveMaintenance: Does this to Dexter in Chapter 1 when it fails to register the Legendary Ho-Oh, in an attempt to restore its memories. It registers Ho-Oh... and reports that it has data on pretty much all Pokémon in existence up to this point... and then reveals himself to have become a fully functional AI.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: They call him "The Gym Destroyer" for a reason. Notably, the secondary challenge of the Blackthorn Gym is "overwhelming power". In order to sufficiently test Ash, Clair had to ''mega-evolve three Pokémon''. Ash not only won the match, he didn't lose a ''single'' Pokémon.
* PlotArmor: [[spoiler: Embodied in the form of his [[DeathIsNotPermanent Sacred Ash]]. However, there's only so much of it.]]
* RunningGag:
** Ever since Cerulean, Ash
page has been habitually destroying gyms, mostly unintentionally. Reached a point where his first two Johto League gym battles were done outside. And by the end of the third, Whitney had most certainly wished she had followed their examples (though one can easily argue that it was her Miltank that did most of the damage, even if Muk finished the building off).
*** When
split up into subpages:

* ''[[Characters/AshesOfThePastAshKetchumAndTeam
Ash reaches Hoenn, Norman asks him to try and win the Gym battles WITHOUT destroying the gyms! Ash treats it a bit as a SelfImposedChallenge.
** There's also the unexplainable thing that Pokémon around Ash have for evolving in spontaneous and sometimes inexplicable ways. With enough time, he can evolve anything. Professor Oak attempted to explain this away by saying that Ash's Aura potential makes this happen, but Ash counters that even ''before'' he had Aura this stuff ''kept happening''.
*** Comes to a head towards the end of his Johto adventures, where his last two gym battles and three of his Silver Conference battles had one of his opponent's Pokémon evolving. Both Ash and Pikachu are beginning to wonder if this is some karmic retribution for all the times Ash won battles when one of ''his'' Pokémon spontaneously evolved.
** One that comes up whenever he brings out a Legendary is people asking who he is in astonishment, followed by them accepting it easily because it's Ash.
** Also, Ash being a WeirdnessMagnet making Absols [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turn tail]] at the first sight of him due to their DangerSense.
** Ash's insistence that the Orange Islands count as a league despite what other people say.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: His entire purpose in this story is to go back in time and stop Cyrus from [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt recreating the world in his own image]].
* SuperEmpowering: The effect of giving anyone he was close to in the old timeline the memories and experiences of that timeline with a single touch.
* SuperSenses: His Aura Sight allows him to see the auras of humans and Pokémon, especially those he can remind and restore, [[XRayVision even through walls]].
* TransformationTrinket: Not for himself, but for his Pokémon - Sir Aaron's staff functions as a Key Stone, and he owns six Mega Stones (seven if Squirtle's artificial Squirtilite is intact), enabling some of his Pokémon to Mega Evolve.
* {{Troll}}: Sometimes.
* WalkOnWater: All the time, using Aura. It's gotten to the point where [[ButForMeItWasTuesday he doesn't even notice how strange this is.]] He's also taught Misty and several of his Pokémon to do it themselves.
* WalkingDisasterArea: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] many, many times. But what really sells it is when he encounters an Absol -- who promptly delivers a RapidFireNo and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere attempts to escape through the nearest window]], which, unfortunately for her, was closed and made of safety glass. It's so bad that Officer Jennys have started printing
Ketchum Incident reporting slips ''just'' so their paperwork can handle all the crazy stuff Ash gets involved in on a shockingly regular basis. Said slips even have an attached form where one can list all the Legendary Pokémon that were a part of said incident.
-->'''Diane''': What now? What do we do after something like ''that'' happens?
-->'''Ash''': [[ButForMeItWasTuesday In my experience..., just keep going
and look out for the next one]].
-->'''Diane''': In your experience? I know you've done some amazing things, but... you have a ''routine?''.
Team]]''
* WeirdnessMagnet: Whenever Ash is around, impossible things (and large-scale destruction) come with him. It eventually gets so bad that Officer Jennys have started printing Ketchum Incident reporting slips ''just'' so their paperwork can handle all the crazy stuff Ash gets involved in on a shockingly regular basis. It even created a RunningGag of making Absols [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turning tail]] with his ''mere presence''.
* WillfullyWeak: One of the reasons Ash doesn't use Legendaries in battle (unless they specifically requested for him to do so) is due to Tobias, who [[CurbStompBattle swept]] his Pokémon with only two Legendaries in the original timeline. Ash doesn't want to be the kind of guy who's arrogant enough to deprive his opponents of a proper chance to prove their worth. It's a sentiment that is shared by several of his friends as well.
* WouldHitAGirl: Had no qualms in punching Annie in the face to take her out.
* YouWereTryingTooHard: Apparently part of the reason Ash has NoSenseOfDirection is his tendency to overthink things, when he's not thinking about where he's going, he usually does fine.

[[folder:Ash's Pokémon]]
!!'''Tropes that apply to all (or several) of them'''
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: Each of them came back to the past with their canon power levels as of BW, and kept working on it.
* BadassCrew: ''All'' of them are this.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Ash is a NiceGuy; he is kind, loyal, and brave to the point of insanity (he confronts ''rampaging Legendaries'' regularly). His Pokémon know this first-hand, and this earns him their loyalty - particularly those he rescued from poachers, disasters, rampaging Pokémon, or just a [[{{Jerkass}} really bad or abusive trainer]].
* TheDreaded: Just like their trainer, several are feared for a variety of reasons.
** All legendaries by default, since they're...well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin legendary]].
** Pikachu, as Ash's starter and one of his most versatile Pokémon. It's not hard to be terrified of an adorable, pint-sized mouse when he can electrocute ground-types and palm-out stone rhinos several times his size.
** Charizard, whose raw power is comparable to Ash's legendaries. [[spoiler:At one point, he managed to overwhelm a legendary trio by himself]].
** Pidgeot, one of the fastest fliers in the world, and one that Lugia trusts to keep his Legendary Bird trio in line.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: He has a ''lot'' of Pokémon.
-->'''Ash''': I've got enough Pokémon that I have to work from a schedule.
-->'''Ivysaur''': You've got enough of us that we have to work out our own entertainment schedules.
** As of Chapter 261 the total is 50, counting the five Tauros individually [[spoiler:and 51 if Mawile's Tyrantum is included]]. And he owns at least one Pokémon of each type to boot, something ''none'' of his traveling companions or other friends has yet to accomplish. [[spoiler: It's up to 51 plus Tyrantum at the end of chapter 267.]]
* TheChosenMany: Since Ash is considered TheChosenOne by a lot of people and Pokémon [[TheChooserOfTheOne who have any say in it]], his Pokémon can be considered this.
* OlympusMons: Ash currently owns no less than [[spoiler: ten]] Legendaries from the first five generations (out of 48 species of them from that same time period).
* SecretArt: Six of his seven starters from Kanto, Johto and Hoenn know their respective type's Hyper Beam equivalent, which are exclusive to Starters - Charizard is revealed to have learned Blast Burn in the Charicific Valley (and is even ''improving'' it), Ivysaur, Meganium and Sceptile have all been shown using Frenzy Plant, and Squirtle and Totodile have both been shown using Hydro Cannon. The only exception is Quilava, who has yet (as of the end of the Battle Frontier arc) to use Blast Burn.
* SuperMode: Several of Ash's Pokémon are capable of Mega Evolution, which [[spoiler:Charizard, Pidgeot, Lucario, Heracross, Squirtle (via an artificial Mega Stone that breaks after one use), Latios, Latias, Absol, Mawile, Tyranitar, Sceptile, Houndoom and Glalie]] have all undergone at least once, though Ash only owns [[spoiler:seven - Charizardite X, Heracronite, Latiosite, Latiasite, Absolite, Sceptilite and Lucarionite (on indefinite loan from the Lucario Kingdom), plus Squirtle's self-made Squirtilite; the other five Mega Evolutions currently need either borrowed Mega Stones, the reality-warping powers of the Unown or a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind to enable the transformation]].
** [[spoiler: Keldeo can't Mega Evolve, but has access to Resolute Form.]]

!!Pikachu
-----
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: Zigzagged. After being BrainwashedAndCrazy and hurting Ash in the process, he became worried that he was too strong for his own good. But after [[spoiler: Ash nearly got killed saving Rayquaza from the two Primals]] and his [[spoiler: loss to Wallace's Greninja]], he becomes worried that he isn't strong ''enough'', which confuses him greatly.
* AlwaysAccurateAttack: Although Shock Wave is this by default, Pikachu has come up with many different variants (expanding dome, falling disc, etc.) of this attack to counter the many different ways a Pokémon can dodge. At last count, he had ''thirty-four''.
* AmplifierArtifact: His Light Ball, obtained when [[spoiler: Ash and Riolu Aura-channeled the energy of a Thunderstone back into itself to prevent Pikachu from evolving]]. Absorbing it into his body makes his cheeks turn Raichu-orange.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Got caught in a Dark Ball by the Vicious/Iron-Masked Marauder.]]
* CoolTeacher: As the Pokémon Ash has never taken off his team, Pikachu knows how to handle and interact with Pokémon of various temperaments, as shown when he is teaching Larvitar how to channel the Steel-typing via Iron Tail for him to learn Iron Head. But when he's trying to make a point, he can end up being a...
* DrillSergeantNasty: According to Sceptile and [[spoiler:Raikou]].
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability. This often is an issue if an opponent manages to [[PowerCopying copy]] it.
** Incidentally, this trope is how Pikachu wound up at the lab in the first place - Professor Oak caught him when he was trying to feed on the electricity from the lab's power cables.[[note]]This doubles as a ShoutOut to his counterpart in the manga ''Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu'', whom Ash found when he was gnawing on the wires under his house in order to eat the electricity.[[/note]]
* TheLeader: By default, as he is both Ash's longest-accompanying Pokémon and one of the strongest he has. The only ones who could possibly be more powerful than Pikachu on Ash's team are Charizard and any Legendaries.
* MagneticWeapons: He can and has used the scientific principles of railguns and coilguns in his attacks.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: When you're a 1'04" electric mouse that can Force Palm [[MusclesAreMeaningless huge stone rhinos and send them flying]] or simply [[ScissorsCutsRock electrocute them into submission]], can this really ''not'' apply?
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon of Mass Destruction]]: This Pikachu can electrocute ''Ground-types''. [[spoiler:Thus the major OhCrap faces when he got caught into a Dark Ball. The only Pokémon Ash had on hand at the time that could match Pikachu in pure power were Keldeo and Suicune, but Keldeo is significantly more inexperienced while Suicune was worn out (having only just been caught when the conflict started), and ''both'' were at a type disadvantage]].
* ScissorsCutsRock: I repeat, Pikachu ''can electrocute Ground-types''! [[spoiler: Dexter eventually figures out that's because he has a not-discovered-until-now Ability that allows him to do so. This Ability has been tentatively named Zappy, in reference to the Scrappy Ability that lets Normal-type moves hit Ghost-types.]]
* SignatureMove: [[ShockAndAwe Volt Crash]], an Electric-type Hyper Beam variation that impressed [[spoiler:Raikou so much that he wanted to lose to Ash just to learn it]]!
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: After accidentally coming into contact with a Thunderstone, Ash and Riolu manage to channel the evolution energy into his cheeks and back into the stone, giving him the stronger electric sacs of a Raichu and a new Light Ball while still remaining a Pikachu.]]

!!Butterfree
-----
* ActionDad: It's revealed in Chapter 150 that he has a number of children with his mate, putting him under this trope.
* OutOfFocus: Once he left to rejoin the other Butterfree he doesn't appear often.

!!Pidgeot
-----
* ActionGirl: And she will not let you forget it.
* BerserkButton: Pidgeot is female. Do not mistake her for a male.
* BlowYouAway: She's got at least a few wind-based moves, including [[spoiler: Aeroblast]].
* TheDreaded: The ''Shamouti Legendary Trio'' are scared of her.
* FrickinLaserBeams: [[spoiler:Aeroblast. See below]].
* HeroicLineage: Likely descended from Aaron's Pidgeot.
* InertiaIsACruelMistress: How No Guard works when [[spoiler: she Mega Evolves]]. Although her attacks are now fast enough that her targets can't dodge, she is also now fast enough that if she tries to dodge any of their attacks, even the slightest deviation of her flight plan could divert her miles out of the area before she could correct.
* LongRangeFighter: Her default fighting style is to stay far out of her opponent's range and blast away with impunity.
* StaringDownCthulhu: She battled the Shamouti Legendary Trio, despite them being, y'know, ''legendary''. ''And she won''.
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler:Lugia himself taught Pidgeot how to use his SignatureAttack: Aeroblast]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Has Mega Evolved, though initially only within Aura Purge mind-scapes. Professor Oak later temporarily borrows a Pidgeotite from someone so Ash can Mega Evolve her in the real world once, though she doesn't outright own one yet.]]
* SuperSpeed: She's capable of flying at Mach Three for hours on end. And with her Tailwind, she can slipstream-tow other Flying Pokémon along with her to the same speed. [[spoiler:Even ''the entire Charicific Valley'']].
* WorldTour: Once flew around the world.

!!Bulbasaur[[spoiler:/Ivysaur]]
-----
* TheGenericGuy: Points out that he is the only one of Ash's Pokémon not to have any real quirks.
* GeneticMemory: Has a ''lot'' of Egg Moves.
* OnlySaneMan: See directly below.
* TheReliableOne: Just like in canon, it is his supervision that keeps all of Ash's ranch roster mostly in line.
* TangledFamilyTree: Bulbasaur's widely varied move pool is a result of a convoluted amount of chain breeding (that according to WordOfGod may include ''any'' breedable Pokémon). It's not so much a tree as it is a "kudzu," according to him.
--> '''Bulbasaur''': I know of a Charmeleon, a Sableye, and a Skarmory in there somewhere. It's more of a family Kudzu...
* ThoseTwoGuys: Is friends with Squirtle.

!!Charizard
-----
* TheBigGuy: By far and away the strongest of Ash's Pokémon barring Legendaries, and even then he's still up there in power levels.
* BreathWeapon: Beyond the standard fire attacks, he uses an overcharged Blast Burn, fuel air bombs derived from Blast Burn, mouth-launched Boombursts, and Dragonbreath.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Downplayed; it's shown in a few of his battles that he's best suited for the Pokémon that can directly bring as much as or more raw power than him to the table, and WeakButSkilled opponents with a lot of tricks are just not something he's trained for. This is best exemplified in his matches with Casey's Rattata/Raticate, who managed to beat him [[spoiler: twice]]. Justified as that Raticate was specially trained for DavidVersusGoliath battles, ''especially'' against Ash's Charizard.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: By getting his tail-flame hot enough to flash-boil water, he's able to ''swim''. Albeit, not for very long.
* LoveHurts: In the previous timeline, he had a mate in the Charicific Valley. Unfortunately, her memories can't be restored, so from her perspective, he's a stranger who claims that they were in a relationship at one point. She's willing to give him a chance at least, but there's no guarantee that it'll work out.
** As of the Johto League, it seems to have worked out so far, as Charla has declared him her boyfriend in public.
* MultiformBalance: [[spoiler:What happens to him during the Spell of the Unown movie, where Ash's feelings, his staff, and Lugia and Ho-Oh's feathers combine to give him the ability to Mega-Evolve between his bulkier X-form and his more streamlined Y-form]].
* NukeEm: Knows Blast Burn, which is so powerful that he has to be explicitly ''ordered'' by Ash to use it, and can produce enough heat to achieve, for a split second, ''nuclear fusion''. It is outright said that the only Fire-type attack more powerful than Blast Burn is Victini's V-Create, which was used to obliterate Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In one attack each.
** Naturally, Ash and Charizard took the basic attack and created more powerful variants.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:His two Mega Forms, as stated above. Even exhausted and heavily injured, he still managed to ''overwhelm an entire Legendary Trio'', themselves empowered by the Unown]].
** [[spoiler:With regards to actual Mega Stones, Charla loans him her Charizardite Y on important occasions, and Ash eventually acquires a Charizardite X from Baron Alberto.]]

!!Squirtle
-----
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Once he learns of Mega Evolution, he devotes most of his time to trying to create a Mega Stone that works for him, even though everyone else points out that only fully-evolved Pokémon can Mega Evolve, and is ridiculed every time he works on the "Squirtilite". [[spoiler:Come the battle with Clair, and ''it actually works'']]. It's just as crazy as it sounds.
** On a smaller note not every one of Squirtle's plans involve over-the-top antics. One plan of his was to defrost a frozen Grass type using Scald slowly to gently unfreeze it. Misty was suprised.
* DeathOrGloryAttack: In earlier chapters, his Horn Drill Breaker was this, given that it practically knocked him out whenever he used it. He eventually grows tough enough to survive the recoil - more or less.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]].
** This has the effect of making Squirtle the living embodiment of CrazyAwesome. Whenever he does anything, massive water explosions are soon to follow.
* {{Fanboy}}: He's a huge ''Gurren Lagann'' fanboy, to the point where his entire fighting style is built around Gurren Lagann. Especially when it comes to [[BeyondTheImpossible doing the impossible]].
* [[TheFriendNobodyLikes The Pokémon Nobody Likes]]: Subtle, but Squirtle's over-the-top personality has not made him popular among some of Ash's friends, like Misty and Professor Oak.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Can imbue his sunglasses with Aura to use them as a sword.
* LargeHam: You read the part about him being Kamina with a shell, right?
* {{Otaku}}: His species's [[PlanetOfHats hat]], which he wears so very proudly.
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon Of Mass Destruction]]: He always ends up destroying the battlefield.
** An example is the battle with Molly, he condenses ''several billion gallons of water'' into a droplet the size of a finger nail then hits Vaporeon with it, Ash who is several hundred meters above the fight has to anchor himself with Aura because of the backlash.
* PlanetOfHats: Like any member of his species, Squirtle is a massive {{fanboy}} of his chosen fandom: Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Somehow managed to create a Mega Stone that works and Mega Evolve into Mega Squirtle. That's right, Squirtle ''made his own Super Mode''.]]
* ThisIsADrill: [[spoiler:Mega Squirtle has two drills made of water on his wrists]]. Also tends to emulate the Giga Drill Break and any variation of said Giga Drill Break when he can.
* ThoseTwoGuys: His friendship with Bulbasaur[[spoiler:/Ivysaur]] echoes this trope.

!!Dexter (Porygon/[[spoiler:[=Porygon2=]]][[spoiler:/Porygon-Z]])
-----
* BeamSpam: When in battle Dexter tends to let the Charge Beams and Signal Beams fly.
* DoAnythingRobot: Along with his original function as a Pokédex, he can also make video-calls, [[CommutingOnABus transmit Ash's other Pokémon directly to him in the field]], perform GPS functions, receive mail, etc.
* FriendlySniper: When Dexter does battle he often does it at a distance.
* HollywoodHacking: Well, he is a Porgyon, so it's kinda part of his programming.
* OddNameOut: The only one of Ash's Pokémon to have a nickname.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Uses Sharpen to reconfigure his body into different shapes best suited for attack or defense.
* TheSmartGuy: Easily the most intelligent of Ash's Pokémon. Justified as he is a computer.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Dexter becoming a Porygon basically saves the line from being {{Exiled From Continuity}}. It is even noted at the start of the story that the only two Kanto-to-Sinnoh Pokémon Ash hadn't seen yet were [=Porygon2=] ([[spoiler:at least until May's own Porygon evolves]]) and Porygon-Z. [[spoiler: Dexter evolves into the latter in the Sky Warrior event when hacking the Megarig]].
* SquishyWizard: He shows traits of this. In the battles where he doesn't outright win, what usually takes him and his projector down is, as he states, "blunt physical trauma".
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Evolves in the MMP arc from interfacing with the Mirage system. Then he evolves again during the events of ''Giratina and the Sky Warrior'']].

!!Riolu/[[spoiler:Lucario]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: Was the Riolu that Ash rescued from Hunter J in the previous timeline.
* BlowYouAway: Can recreate [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma's]] SignatureMove, the Flying Dragon Uppercut (Hiryu Shoten Ha), by using Fire Punch or Ice Punch against Ice-types or Fire-types to create the spiral of opposing temperatures.
* DeadpanSnarker: A prominent trait of his personality after his evolution.
* FastballSpecial: Knows Fling. Often, instead of items, he ends up throwing other Pokémon (or people). Usually Pikachu, much to the latter's annoyance.
* MagicMissileStorm: Developed a version of Aura Sphere that turns it into several smaller seeker spheres a la Macross.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Is loaned a Lucarionite by the Lucario Kingdom during the Mystery of Mew movie.]]
* TakingTheBullet: During the ''Power of One'' arc, he jumps in front of Ash to protect him from a Toxic shot by [[spoiler:J's Drapion. This act is what ''finally'' causes him to evolve, and the author admits that this is what he intended his evolution to be for a while]].
* WalkOnWater: To the point that he can surfboard - without the board. It's practically his hobby.
* WaveMotionGun: Is capable of using Aura Storm, his ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' Final Smash.
* WolverineClaws: Metal Claw, like its canon use. Goes into full BladeBelowTheShoulder when he adds [[spoiler:Sacred Sword]].

!!Kingler
-----
* MakingASplash: He's the underwater battle specialist of Ash's Pokémon; his first moves are usually dedicated to flooding the area to set up Crabhammer - underwater, the attack is based off the RealLife ''pistol shrimp''.
* OnlySaneMan: It may be due to being OutOfFocus, but it seems that Kingler is probably [[spoiler:(not counting Ivysaur)]] the sanest out of all of Ash's current Pokémon. His exchange with Primeape really showcased it.
* PowerPincers: Oh yes, since he fires most of his attacks from them - including ''Hyper Beam''.
* UnfazedEveryman: His personality; Professor Oak said that he's the best-behaved of Ash's Pokémon, and he doesn't bat an eyelash at the many outlandish things the others get involved with (not that he has any).

!!Primeape
-----
* DeathOrGloryAttack: Master Blow, the ultimate technique of his art, is a single punch ''thrown at the speed of sound'' and pretty much a OneHitKO. The drawbacks are...
--> '''Ivysaur:''' Whoa! What happened to you?!
--> '''Primeape:''' I just used up as much energy as most Pokémon do in a half-hour battle in about a second, I'm going to need three days of rest, and I think I broke my hand. Take it from me: the sound barrier is ''not'' your friend, at least not when you break it.
* FantasticFightingStyle: He developed the move Close Combat into an entire martial art.
* {{Homage}}: Said art is basically the ''Coup De Vitesse'' from Literature/HonorHarrington.
* FragileSpeedster: His speed is ''insane'', but, like in the games, he's not very durable. He's fast enough that Assurance counts him as his own partner.
* GlassCannon: His damage output is ''insane'', but, like in the games, he's not very durable. He makes up for it by means of using [[FantasticFightingStyle the martial art he developed]] to beat his opponent into a pulp before they get the chance to attack.
* TheGlovesComeOff: Often takes off his boxing gloves mid-fight so he can hit a lot harder.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: His raison d'être. If it isn't his martial art, it's a devastating infinite chain of Assurance[[note]]A move that is stronger if your partner was just hit, but he's [[SuperSpeed fast enough to be his own partner]][[/note]] that allows him to hit anything until it falls over. He also knows Thrash and Outrage, which are this trope in Move form.
* OutOfFocus: Doesn't show up much.
* RealMenWearPink: Does ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) as a hobby. It's to conserve his anger for the majority of the week.
* UnstoppableRage: Anything new here? No.
** ''Especially'' when Anger Point activates. Or if he's using Outrage.

!!Muk
-----
* BeamSpam: Hoo boy, yes. This is basically his whole style.
* CripplingOverspecialization: He now has trouble trying ''not'' to do a BeamSpam of moves at once, which is a problem when faced with a foe that requires a specific attack type or certain move to defeat, when his moves mess with each other, or when the situation calls for precision instead of power. He's starting to improve, but it's still an issue.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Cookie Monster from ''Series/SesameStreet''. The aforementioned event below was a result of him mistaking Oak's [=TMs=] for cookies and consuming most of them.
* HiddenDepths: Would you expect him to be a connoisseur of cheese?
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pokémon Of Mass Destruction]]: When you can literally break the Pokémon move rules and launch off ''twenty different moves '''at the same time''''', you are this. No questions asked.
-->Muk opened his mouth, and then all Weavile knew was pain.
* RunningGag: Whenever he attacks, it's always multiple moves at the same time.

!!Tauros x5/''The Bull-Dozer''
-----
* CounterAttack: One of them knows Counter.
* DrawingStraws: What Ash using any Tauros boils down to. It's the luck of the draw for anything they know; one of his Tauros even know ''Rain Dance''.
* ElementalPowers: Between the five of them, their movesets cover an impressive variety of types, including [[PlayingWithFire Fire Blast]], [[MakingASplash Rain Dance and Surf]], [[ShockAndAwe Wild Charge]], [[DishingOutDirt Fissure and Earthquake]], [[ExtraOreDinary Iron Head and Iron Tail]], [[CastingAShadow Payback]] and [[ThePowerOfTheSun Solar]][[GreenThumb beam]].
* FoeTossingCharge[=/=]CrushParade: Thanks to Squirtle's CrazyAwesome tactics, their Outrage-enhanced Bull-Dozer formation boils down to this.
* ALoadOfBull: Professor Oak was on the verge of crying when he heard he had to take care of five Tauros, only to quickly change his tune when Dexter mentioned that it was originally ''thirty''.
* WalkOnWater: At least one of them knows how to do this via Aura.

!!Lapras
-----
* AntiAir: A few of his battles, like against Drake's Dragonite and Clair's Flygon, have boiled down to this.
* OutOfFocus: Ever since the Orange Islands, Lapras tends to be off-screen with the other Lapras.

!!Snorlax
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: One of Ash's strongest Pokémon, but outside of a battle he's frequently napping. To be fair, he ''is'' a Snorlax...
** Primeape also says that he's very wise as well, though getting any advice while he's asleep is a puzzle.
* EyeBeams: The form that his Hyper Beam takes, unlike the BreathWeapon that it was in canon.
* TheStoic: He doesn't talk much, even when he's in battle.
* TheVoiceless: Has sometimes talked without actually making any sounds. Primeape says it's Sleep Talk.

!!Heracross
-----
* ArmCannon: [[spoiler:In his Mega Evolution, this is what comes out of him using either Rock Blast, [[KiAttacks Focus Blast and Aura Sphere]]. Spectators have actively compared him to a {{mecha}}.]]
* MoreDakka: The result of Pin Missile [[spoiler: in his Mega Evolution]].
* NoSell: Was able to negate being frozen due to [[spoiler:Mega Heracross producing high temperatures of body heat]].
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Knows Arm Thrust, which is this [[spoiler:in his Mega Evolution]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:After Chuck's Gym Battle, he gives Ash a piece of Heracronite, allowing Heracross to Mega-Evolve]].

!!Bayleef[[spoiler:/Meganium]]
-----
* ActionGirl: Even though she's a healer and a girl, she can battle with the best of them.
* ActionMom: Is now a mother to a Chikorita as of the [[spoiler:Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon]] event.
* BattleCouple: Alongside Sceptile.
* CombatMedic: While her talents gear more towards healing, that doesn't make her any less dangerous in a fight.
* LoveHurts: After Ash finally gets the fact that Bayleef has a crush on him through his skull, he gently turns her down. She admits that she had a feeling that was the case, but she still cares for him.
* OnlySaneMan: And she knows it.
--> '''[[spoiler: Suicune:]]''' Do you ever feel like you're the only sane one?
--> '''Meganium:''' All the time...
* ShipTease: With Ash's Sceptile. Frequently becoming WeAreNotAnItem denials, which are fooling no-one.
** [[spoiler: They are revealed to have finally gotten together and [[BabiesEverAfter had a Chikorita egg]] about a month before chapter 193.]]
* WhiteMage: Primarily the healer of the team.
** Her plant-reviving breath has come in handy several times on their journey.

!!Quilava
-----
* ActionGirl: Revealed to be female in this story, and is a skilled fighter.
* {{Expy}}: Her fighting style combines Flame Wheel and Aerial Ace. The result is similar to [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic's Homing Attack]].
* {{Fangirl}}: Of Franchise/SailorMoon. Which was introduced to her by a [[{{Otaku}} Wartortle]]. Thankfully she does not go overboard with her fandom like Squirtle or that Wartortle.
* [[InTheNameOfTheMoon In The Name Of The Sun]]: Gives a short speech when she [[spoiler:lands the final blow against Suicune, giving Ash the opening he needed to catch her]].
** Gives another one during one of Ash's Silver Conference matches. Both Ash and Pikachu are panicked that they've got another Squirtle, but she was just {{Troll}}ing them.

!!Totodile
-----
* DanceBattler: Will take any excuse to dance.
* {{Keet}}: He's incredibly energetic.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Don't take his unevolved status lightly; this kid has held his own against Legendaries.
* TagalongKid: His cheerful, playful attitude suggests that he's one of the younger members of the team, even though he's gained several years worth of memories and experience. Best shown when he's playing tag with [[spoiler: Mawile]].

!!Noctowl
-----
* MasterOfIllusion: Ash makes frequent use of his illusionary skills during battle.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: His characterization. Interestingly, it's not even his real accent or personality - it's an act he puts on because he likes it.

!!Houndour/Houndoom
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally appeared in an early episode of Johto, and here joins Ash's team.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Beat Up either takes the form of this, or has the duplicates turn into copies of his party members.
* FaceOfAThug: He's friendly and sociable enough, but still has the appearance of a HellHound.
* IOweYouMyLife: The reason why he decided to journey with Ash. He doesn't regret it at all.
* TagalongKid: PlayedWith. He's one of the younger Pokémon in Ash's group but he pulls his weight and is welcomed into the fold with open arms.

!![[spoiler:Ho-Oh]]
-----
* AnswersToTheNameOfGod: After [[spoiler: saving Forrest from the King of PokéAtlantis]], Flint thanks the gods that his son is safe. He accepts his thanks.
* BadassBoast: When facing the entirety of the Phantom Pirates:
--> '''[[spoiler: Ho-Oh]]:''' I have decided you qualify as a storm. I would suggest you land, or I will end you- as is my duty.
* CallToAdventure: Inverted. As a [[spoiler: Legendary Pokémon]], he's always prepared to help preserve the world, and being with Ash would help him directly handle many of those threats... if only Ash would remember to have him on-hand at the time. In other words, he's always waiting for the Call, but the Caller (Ash) keeps forgetting to make it.
** He eventually gets sick of it and decides to join Ash's on-hand roster full-time until the Call is made once again (specifically until the Temple of the Sea).
* GeoEffects: Knows Weather Ball, and a whole host of [[WeatherManipulation weather-inducing moves]] to make full use of it.
** One of his Ash-taught techniques is to create an artificial thermal, to gain an instant height advantage.
** Can even combo it alongside attacks that aren't precisely "weather", like Ominous Wind.
* NitroBoost: Has figured out how to create a ramjet.
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: Taught Misty's Togekiss how to use Sacred Fire. He taught it to Entei as well during the Hoenn arc.]]
* WaveMotionGun: What else can you call condensing a whole storm into a single Weather Ball?

!![[spoiler:Mewtwo]]
The world's strongest Pokémon.
-----
* BadassBoast: When he says he's the world's most powerful Pokémon, ''he means it''.
* TheComicallySerious: Complains whenever people or Pokémon start spoiling his "dignified" countenance.
* BulletHell: Shadow Sweep, or how he uses Shadow Ball to effectively catch hyper-evasive Ghost-types.
* CommutingOnABus: As part of Ash's "Legendary Big Three", he isn't part of the main team - rather, he was caught to prevent anyone unsavory from catching him and using him for less-than-admirable aims. He is still, however, at Ash's call for emergencies and/or other big occasions, [[spoiler:such as exhibition matches with the Elite Four]].
* GeneticMemory: [[spoiler:He occasionally gets a flash of memory from the Mew whose DNA was used to create him.]]
* InstantExpert: Became an expert in orbital mechanics in two days, from a textbook, [[spoiler: enough that he can set a piece of Millennium Comet in Lissajous orbit around the moon.]]
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: In his quest to find a purpose in life, he's done a lot of things. Special effects artist, actor, author, spacecraft launch assistance, business owner, astronaut...
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Pretty much his thing. As the above trope notes, ''he's'' the reason none of the natural disasters and assorted chaos from the movie plots have [[ThereAreNoGlobalConsequences devastating effects.]]
* RealityWarper: Is even better than the Unown at it. He makes their illusionary legendary beasts ''real''. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And shiny.]]
* [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Most Powerful Pokémon]]: And he will not let you forget it. Dexter outright states that the only other Pokémon who could outmatch him in pure power is ''Arceus'', and Arceus only beats him because of the ''millennia'' he's had to refine his power. With Arceus indisposed at the moment, he is this by default.
** [[spoiler: In the "present-bubble", ''Arceus himself'' admits that Mewtwo (or at least his Mega-Evolutions) could give him a run for his money.]]
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Is really, really good at this, even relative to the rest of his abilities. Casual mass teleportation into interplanetary space and mass teleport-arrests are things he does.
* UnskilledButStrong: Compared to other Legendaries, many of which have had centuries, if not ''longer'', to develop their powers, he's incredibly powerful, but inexperienced. [[spoiler:This is his argument to Rayquaza as to why he should still be considered the [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Most Powerful Pokémon]] after the Scuffle of Legends, Rayquaza has been dealing with Groudon and Kyogre ''far'' longer than he has.]]

!![[spoiler:Lugia]]
-----
* ArcWelding: [[spoiler: He's the Lugia of the second movie, and the father of Silver, the baby Lugia of the Johto period.]]
* DidntThinkThisThrough: [[spoiler: Offered to watch over Altomere for the Eon Pokemon on Ash's Team when they wanted to spend some time with him, but failed to realize that this would result in him being stuck in the garden the entire time due to his size and lack of illusion abilities]].
* PapaWolf: Don't mess with his son [[spoiler:Silver]]. Just... don't.
* {{Roboteching}}: [[spoiler: Manages, with Ash's help, to bend his Aeroblast and Twister attacks however he wants.]]
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler: Taught Ash's Pidgeot how to use Aeroblast.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: His opinion of [[spoiler: the three legendary birds of Shamouti.]] Hard to blame him.
--> '''[[spoiler: Lugia:]]''' My son is more mature than you! ''My son!''
--> '''[[spoiler: Articuno:]]''' [[spoiler: Silver?!]] But he's only three years old!
--> '''[[spoiler: Lugia:]]''' [[DeadpanSnarker My point exactly.]]

!![[spoiler:Keldeo]]
A Unovan Pokémon that meets Ash partway through his Johto Journey, and after talking to him, decides to temporarily travel with him.
-----
* BadassAdorable: He's definitely aware of being the latter part, which he uses to his advantage to get souvenir photos of his journey [[spoiler:with the other Swords of Justice]]; he knows that any pictures he poses for will end up on the Internet, which he can later search for at his leisure. He also sold pictures of himself to get money for their travels.
* CommutingOnABus: He sometimes briefly returns to the group after the battle with Norman, usually via [[spoiler:Mewtwo]]'s teleportation skills.
* [[spoiler: CoolSword: Can combine [[AnIcePerson Ice attacks]] into his Secret Sword and thus create an Ice Sword move, which he can also fire thanks to the below SwordBeam technique]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appeared four regions before his canon debut.
* GuestStarPartyMember: He explicitly states he'll stay on Ash's team for roughly one year. He finally returns to Unova after winning the Balance Badge from Norman.
* MakingASplash: He's a Water-type.
* NotQuiteFlight: One of his signature moves is to use Hydro Pump from his hooves as jump jets.
* SwordBeam: [[spoiler:What happens when he gets Secret Sword and Aura Sphere mixed up.]]
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: His Resolute Form]].

!![[spoiler:Suicune]]
-----
* FreudianTrio: The Ego to [[spoiler:Entei's Superego and Raikou's Id.]]
* OutNumberedSibling: [[spoiler:Entei and Raikou were created to be her brothers]].
* WalkOnWater: Not only ''walk'', but ''run''.
* WomenAreWiser: [[spoiler:Definitely true when compared to Raikou. With Entei it's a bit harder to tell.]]

!![[spoiler:Entei]]
-----
* BerserkButton: Gets mad when anyone negates his Sunny Day, [[spoiler: thanks to Misty denying it as much as she could during her match with him.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: Exploited when he ''uses'' Lava Plume, but ''says'' Eruption, [[spoiler: to trick Ash into giving up on capturing him early.]]
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: Shows shades of this. During his first match with Ash, Entei strikes a powerful blow to Ash's entire team with Eruption. In reality, he actually used Lava Plume and simply called his attack the wrong name, to make it seem like he was more healthy than he was (Eruption gets more powerful the more HP one has). It worked and tricked Ash into surrendering early]].
* FreudianTrio: The Superego to [[spoiler:Suicune's Ego and Raikou's Id.]]
* GreenAroundTheGills: More than a few people that he has given a ride to have ended up this way.
* HairDecorations: Has more than once ended up with ribbons and bows in his mane, [[NeverLiveItDown much to his chagrin.]]
* WalkOnWater: [[spoiler: Entei can't actually walk on water, but he can run across it like his sister and brother can.]]

!!Donphan
-----
* GoombaStomp: One of Ash's new tactics for him is to combo Rollout, then Bounce, [[ShockwaveStomp and finally Earthquake/Magnitude]] on the way down, ''right on his target's head''.
** Goes into DeathFromAbove levels during his battle with Raikou, where Pidgeot helped carry him high enough to deal some real damage.

!!Mawile
A Pokémon Ash did not have in the original timeline. He received the egg as a prize for the Pokémon skateboard race in the place of Donphan's, having spotted the latter's egg earlier and, unintentionally, '''Reminded''' it on the spot (necessitating the need for an alternate egg as a prize).
-----
* BreakTheCutie: A downplayed example: she realizes the world isn't a very nice place when she meets a family of Mawile who are nasty to her friend [[spoiler:Sliggoo]] [[FantasticRacism for no other reason than for what he is.]] Their meanness almost brings her to tears.
* CheerfulChild: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as she only just hatched.
* TheDreaded: PlayedForLaughs. Considering Ash is getting [[PersonOfMassDestruction a very strong]] [[LivingLegend reputation]], this [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Fairy-type]] Pokémon was born while Ash was in the Dragon Holy Land causing dragons everywhere to panic seconds after she was born.
-->'''Dragonite''': (false calm) Ash Ketchum. Has. A Fairy Type.
-->'''Dragalge''': And it's even [[spoiler: [[NoSell immune to Poison]]]]?
-->'''Gabite''': (arrived at a decision) We're all doomed.
-->'''Flygon''': Now, don't worry. This might not be as bad as-
** The first action she made after hatching? Demonstrate she knows [[AnIcePerson Ice Fang]] as an egg move.
--->'''Flygon:''' It knows Ice Fang! Run!
** For her part, Mawile doesn't understand the reactions; she thinks Dragon-types are cool!
* InsistentTerminology: Insists that Larvitar is this, even though he's had [[TimeyWimeyBall three or so years of future memories restored.]]
-->"You hatched after me, you're a little brother! That's maths!"
* KillerRabbit: She is aware of how cute she is, and exploits it with a ruthlessness more typical of Dark-types. This is, according to the games, a ''[[InvokedTrope racial trait]]''. [[SeenItAll Norman]] also [[LampshadeHanging mentions how most rookies make the mistake of lowering their guards]] when seeing one for the first time. [[NiceGirl She is, however, honestly very nice and sweet outside of battle.]]
** She then learns to plan and to give tactical advice, as well as thinking up alternative uses of Moves to obtain an advantage - often on the fly. In essence, she is becoming like her trainer, making the previously-mentioned panic of an entire valley's worth of dragons entirely justified.
* [[LikeASonToMe Like a Daughter to Me]]: Subverted. When she Mega Evolves, Ash notes that while it wouldn't be accurate to call her a daughter, she is a little like one. Not to mention the fact that she seems to be [[ParentalSubstitute deliberately modeling herself]] after Ash.
* LittleMissBadass: What else are you when you can [[CurbStompBattle one-shot]] your (albeit weakened) opponent in your very first battle?
** It says a lot that when she wanders off on her own during a [[ZombieApocalypse mass Fossil Revival]] in Sinnoh, no one doubts that she can handle herself, and she manages to calm a Tyrunt down all on her own.
* LongList: Apparently has a checklist of Pokemon she's helped achieve NotQuiteFlight.
* ManOfKryptonite: Why she's TheDreaded to Dragon types, she's not only a Fairy-type that's immune to poison, but she has an Ice-type move as an Egg Move.
* NotQuiteFlight: [[spoiler: Uses Flamethrower in her Mega-Evolution as rocket propulsion.]] Her hobby is to think up ways for Ash's other Pokemon to fly, even if they can't.
** While not [[spoiler: Mega-Evolved]], she can use a homemade glider with a single Flamethrower for propulsion.
** [[spoiler: When Quilava does this, she actually shows that she has a list]]
* OriginalCharacter: Ash didn't have her in canon.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Knows Play Rough. And even aside from that, [[spoiler: her Mega-Evolution has Huge Power]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: As per expectation of her species.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Borrows a Mega Stone in 152 and uses it to Mega Evolve.]]
* SuperStrength: [[spoiler: Mega Evolving grants her the ability Huge Power.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Is the latter for all of her fully-evolved playmates, [[spoiler: Tyranitar]], [[spoiler: Goodra]], and [[spoiler: Tyrantrum]].
* UseYourHead: Knows Iron Head, thanks to Tracey's Scizor and [[spoiler:Raikou]].

!![[spoiler:Raikou]]
-----
* BoisterousBruiser: Is easily the most bombastic out of his siblings.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[spoiler:By far the strangest member of the Legendary Beasts]].
* DropTheHammer: Can (somehow) use Wood Hammer by swinging the signs he carries around as a weapon.
* DishingOutDirt: Learned Dig.
* FreudianTrio: The Id to [[spoiler:Suicune's Ego and Entei's Superego]]
* ImprovisedWeapon: His signs, which can be used as Wood Hammer. [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Somehow]].
** Well, they ARE made of wood...
* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:He decides to do all the Johto gyms solo to prove to Ash that he wouldn't hold back the next time they fought... which others pointed out wouldn't matter, as he could theoretically ''still'' hold back the next time they fought.]]
* SelfImposedChallenge: The reason why he even decided to [[spoiler: solo Johto's gyms is so he could prove to Ash that he can give him a good fight.]]
* TalkingWithSigns: How he communicates with those who do not speak Pokémon.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Noodles.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Raikou decided that the only way to prove to Ash that he was going to give his all during his next challenge was to get the eight badges of Johto. He then proceeds to solo the Johto gym challenge, earning the following: Zephyr Badge (083), Hive Badge (offscreen - identified in 086), Plain Badge (086), Fog Badge (087), Storm Badge (092), Mineral Badge (096; offscreen), Glacier Badge (096), Rising Badge (097).]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Is called out by his sister for throwing the fight against Ash, all for the purpose of learning Volt Crash from Pikachu.

!![[spoiler:Latios]]
-----
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler: Luster Purge. Unlike most other legendaries, Latios]] can't turn the power of his signature move down. Unfortunately, it's so powerful than it can't be used safely if there's a risk of it missing and hitting anything important, and against most opponents it can't be used without risking seriously injuring them.
* CommutingOnABus: [[spoiler: So at least one of the Latis is at Altomare at all times]].
* ShipTease: With [[spoiler: another Latias]] belonging to a Nurse Joy inspector.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:In [[Anime/PokemonHeroes the original timeline]] he pulled a HeroicSacrifice to save Altomare from a tidal wave. Now thanks to Mewtwo, Latias will never be without her brother]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: His Mega Stone was found in the DMA, and his bond with Bianca lets him Mega Evolve when he's not with Ash.]]
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler: Can sustain Mach 4 with passengers when Mega Evolved.]]
* WaveMotionGun: [[spoiler: Luster Purge. Shoots through 20 feet of stone when first used by an untrained, exhausted Latios.]]

!![[spoiler:Latias]]
-----
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler: Mist Ball. Unlike most other legendaries, Latias]] can't turn the power of her signature move down. Unfortunately, it's so powerful than it can't be used safely if there's a risk of it missing and hitting anything important, and against most opponents it can't be used without risking seriously injuring them.
* BoringButPractical: [[spoiler: Mist Ball]], at least in the visual looks department. Not much flash from a simple ball of white fluff, but it damn hurts when it goes off.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Shows a bit of this in chapter 106.
* CommutingOnABus: [[spoiler: Slated for this alongside her brother, but she's the one who is going with Ash first]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Her Mega Stone was found in the DMA, and her bond with Bianca lets her Mega Evolve when she's not with Ash.]]
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler: Can sustain Mach 4 with passengers when Mega Evolved.]]

!!Larvitar[[spoiler:/Pupitar/Tyranitar]]
-----
* BigLittleBrother: Is this to Mawile, no matter how much he argues the point. [[spoiler: Even/Especially after his double evolution.]]
* BreathWeapon: [[spoiler:Hyper Beam as a Tyranitar, reminiscent of his [[{{Franchise/Godzilla}} inspiration]].]]
* HowDoIShotWeb: [[spoiler:After he evolves into Pupitar during the Rustboro Gym match, he finds movement a problem as a limbless rock that moves via jet propulsion. Gets even worse after his second evolution into Tyranitar, as he finds his new body so unwieldy that he can't even walk without overbalancing. See RequiredSecondaryPowers below.]]
** He ''does'' eventually get the hang of it by the time Ash starts the Battle Frontier.
* InsistentTerminology: On the receiving end as [[spoiler:Mawile]] insists that since he hatched after her, he's her little brother, even though his restored memories technically imply the opposite.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Borrows a Tyranitarite during the [[Anime/PokemonDestinyDeoxys LaRousse City events.]]]]
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: [[spoiler: Apparently, the reason Tyranitars can walk and move quickly is a combination of hollow bones and an internal pneumatic system, that must be practiced while as a Pupitar. But since Larvitar was only a Pupitar for a minute or so, he doesn't have the practice at using said pneumatic system, meaning that even just nodding causes him to overbalance.]]

!!Swellow
-----
* CloseRangeCombatant: At least when compared to Pidgeot, specifically in HitAndRunTactics.
* {{Expy}}: Her flying skills, {{Fangirl}}-ness to the more experienced Pidgeot and overall excitable, [[{{Tomboy}} rough-and-tumble attitude]] makes her one to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]].
** And she can even pull off the Buccaneer Blaze [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome offscreen]].
* {{Fangirl}}: Is one towards Ash's Pidgeot. Their first meeting mostly consists about her {{Squee}}ing [[spoiler: about Pidgeot learning Aeroblast from [[OlympusMons Lugia]]]].
* FightOffTheKryptonite: Swellow is highly resistant to Electric-Type moves, as in canon. It's likely that she has some Ability that allows this, like with Pikachu and "Zappy".
* MakeMeWannaShout: Knows Boomburst.

!!Sceptile
-----
* ActionDad: Is now a father to a Chikorita as of the [[spoiler:Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon]] event.
* BattleCouple: Alongside Meganium.
* BewareMyStingerTail: His tail is already heavy enough, [[spoiler: but it can [[{{BFG}} launch like a missile]] when he is Mega Evolved]].
* GeneticMemory: His son inherited his [[spoiler:Sacred Sword]] as an Egg Move.
* LaserBlade: Leaf Blade, natch, as well as [[spoiler: Sacred Sword]].
* ShipTease: With Ash's Meganium [[spoiler:née Bayleef]]. Frequently becoming WeAreNotAnItem denials, [[EveryoneCanSeeIt which are fooling no-one.]]
** [[spoiler: Eventually, [[RelationshipUpgrade even he can't deny it either.]]]]
** [[spoiler: They are revealed to have finally gotten together about a month before chapter 193.]]
* SwordBeam: Thanks to [[spoiler: Keldeo's]] tutelage, he can now perform this.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Team Rocket gives Ash Sceptilite from their armory in exchange for the Audinite.]]
* YouRemindMeOfX: Mentions that Ash's Meganium reminds him of the Meganium [[LoveHurts who broke his heart]].

!!Corphish
-----
* ATeamFiring: So much so, that when at range, the only way he can hit ''anything'' is to explicitly ''not'' aim at it.
* CombatPragmatist: His fighting style is no-nonsense. Harass with Bubble Beam, get close, use [[LaserBlade Razor Shell]] and Crabhammer on whatever target seems most open, repeat until enemy is defeated. Faces, backs, and the backs of the legs (if applicable) seem to be his preferred targets.
* CuttingTheKnot: Tends to be his solution to everything. For that matter, the way he rejoined the team was an example of this on [[spoiler:Celebi]]'s part--they'd forgotten about encoutering Corphish, so [[spoiler:Celebi just randomly showed up and threw him at Ash. ''[[FridgeLogic Because Celebi was]] '''[[FridgeLogic running late]]'''''.]]
* LaserBlade: What his new move Razor Shell looks like. [[Franchise/StarWars Even sounds like it too.]]
* NoSocialSkills: His solution to a couple who CannotSpitItOut is to ''throw the girl at the boy''.

!![[spoiler:Goomy/Sliggoo/Goodra]]
The Kalos Pokémon Gary traded to Ash for a Mega-Evolving Pokémon from Hoenn.
-----
* BizarreAlienSenses: Can detect objects not in his line of sight if they're being rained on.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:Appeared four regions before his debut region in the anime. Moreover, Ash never made it to Kalos in the original timeline, so Ash technically had never met Goomy at all.]]
* NotQuiteFlight: At [[spoiler:Mawile's]] encouragement, he can turn his Dragon Pulse into rocket propulsion, [[spoiler: as in canon.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: To [[spoiler: Mawile]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: [[spoiler: As in canon, Fairy-Type Pokémon]]. He's even nervous around cotton candy, as it reminds him of Swirlix.

!!Absol
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally a side character from movie 6, she joins Ash's team this time around.
* DangerSense: Comes in the form of her Disaster Sense, which allows her to sense the probabilities of actions leading to disaster, including oncoming attacks. She claims to be a "chance-dancer" because of it, and is notably more skilled with her disaster sense than a different Absol who isn't one.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: The only Absol thus far that doesn't lose her head at the sight of [[WeirdnessMagnet Ash]].
* MissionControl: [[spoiler: Uses her Disaster Sense to help figure out the correct course of action during the Delta Episode.]]
* SemanticSuperpower: [[spoiler: As Mega Absol, her disaster sense extends to automatically being aware of anything that would prevent or mitigate an impending major disaster, because she can sense a reduction in danger.]]
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Can use the Absolite that Gary found earlier to Mega-Evolve.]]
** SuperPowerMeltdown: [[spoiler:When she first Mega-Evolves, though, her Disaster Sense is overclocked to the point that the massive influx of dangerous information gives her a bad case of MySkullRunnethOver, driving her berserk as a result.]]
* SwordBeam: What she's working on with regards to her Night Slash.

!!Torkoal
-----
* TheApprentice: The moment Squirtle meets him, Torkoal's immediately yanked under his wing, like it or not.
* ExcessiveSteamSyndrome: [[InsaneTrollLogic Somehow, thanks to knowing the Water-type move Withdraw, he can combine it with his fire to produce copious amounts of steam from his body]], which, when expelled through his shell-holes, [[VentPhysics turns him into a steam rocket.]]

!!Glalie
-----
* ShapingYourAttacks: Uses Ice Beam and Ice Shard to create and manipulate ice constructs, essentially using [[Manga/FairyTail Ice-Make]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Between his myriad of puns and his repetitive ice-crafting, opponents often don't take him seriously enough, which can cost them.
* PungeonMaster: Mainly ice-related, but can deliver all sorts.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Downplayed. Because ice-crafting is such a prolific tactic of his, opponents make the error that it's his ''only'' tactic, causing them to switch to close combat or simply blast away at them until he's out of ice. In actual fact, while Glalie can make more unorthodox use out of his constructs than you would first think, he's no slouch in close combat either.

!!Buizel
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Celebi drops him off at Misty's gym (they meant to send him to Dawn so he could be traded for Ambipom, but panicked due to being spotted by Barry) while Ash is on his way to the Battle Pyramid, and Misty delivers him to Ash right before that challenge can begin.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Firing a barrage of water missiles while flying in Aqua Jet is one of his go-to tactics. Especially when he [[AnIcePerson freezes]] them.
* NotQuiteFlight: Can use Aqua Jet to attain flight.
* SeenItAll: Once he's Reminded, Buizel isn't surprised by a lot of the developments in Ash's life since they last met, citing experience in regard to the time travel.

!!Staraptor
-----
* CloseRangeCombatant: Similar to Swellow, but while Swellow specializes in HitAndRunTactics, Staraptor is a straight-up brawler.
* LightningBruiser: Between Tailwind to boost his speed and his normal [[GoodOldFisticuffs brawling style]] of Close Combat and Steel Wing, he's really fearsome in close quarters.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: Has verbed a few nouns ("medicining") and adverbed a few adjectives ("superiorly") in his speech. Whether he's trying to be a {{Neologizer}} is up for debate.
* SeenItAll: Isn't really surprised by the new timeline, considering most of what he's been through in Sinnoh.

!!Infernape
-----
* CallingTheOldManOut: Downplayed; via a note to Paul, although he apologizes for losing to Cynthia, he does call Paul out for getting mad at him for losing to the strongest Pokémon of the strongest trainer in Sinnoh, with both a hefty type and level advantage.
* SeenItAll: He's not too surprised that Ash has caught several Legendaries.

!!Torterra
-----
* HiddenDepths: Enjoys planning parties.
* MightyGlacier: With his high defense and low speed, he didn't exactly mesh well with Ash's [[LightningBruiser usual high-speed strategies]], but luckily, Ash has had several years to work out something that will. Now, even if he himself moves slow, he can use ''attacks'' that don't.
* StatusBuff: Can swallow his own Energy Balls to boost his firepower.

!!Dame Kari Burns (Honedge)
------
* ActionGirl: Was a Knight before her human death, now she's a Honedge.
* CoolSword: Was [[spoiler: Ash's ceremonial sword from the Togepi Kingdom before his Aura awakened the sleeping sprit inside in Alamos Town]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: Was a knight before becoming a Honedge, and isn't going to stop being one now.
* EquippableAlly: She's a possessed sword, and she's given permission for Ash to wield her [[spoiler: like he always has]].
* OriginalCharacter: Was ''not'' around in the original timeline.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The spirit of a human knight infused into a sword.
* ShoutOut: Kari Burns is a reference (or PunnyName) to Caliburn, the sword Myth/KingArthur had before {{Excalibur}} and which was pulled from the stone to prove his right of kingship. [[spoiler: Consider that Ash has used her before to produce Sacred Swords, which he learned from Keldeo whose Sacred Sword is, per WordOfGod, based on Excalibur.]]
* TalkingWeapon: Well, PokemonSpeak for those without translation skills.
* UpliftedAnimal: [[spoiler:Exposure to Ash's Aura awakened her spirit which resided inside his ceremonial sword]].
* WasOnceAMan: Was once a human knight of the Togepi Kingdom before becoming a ghost, though Dexter notes that most Ghost-types were ''not'' born that way.

!!Tyrunt/Tyrantrum
Technically not a member of Ash's team, but he is owned by [[spoiler:Mawile]].
------
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Like just about all other reanimated Fossil Pokémon.
* GentleGiant: Is this after he evolves.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: His evolutionary line is known for being brutal, vicious and bloodthirsty. This one's a pacifist.
* TakeAThirdOption: Doesn't want to be away from Mawile, but doesn't want to be forced to battle as a member of Ash's team nor be the only member who doesn't. So Ash figures he can be [[spoiler: Mawile's Pokémon]] instead.

!!Gliscor
------
* ActionGirl
* {{Fangirl}}: Like [[spoiler:Iris]], it turns out that her unreminded self had become one for Ash due to his exploits making him famous this time around.
* TheGlomp: Loves doing this to Ash as in canon.

!!Gible
The last Pokémon Ash caught in Sinnoh in anime canon.
------
* EarlyBirdCameo: Celebi drops him off with Ash shortly after the Wallace Cup, months before they were supposed to meet.

!![[spoiler:Giratina]]
[[spoiler:Following the events of the ''Giratina and the Sky Warrior'' arc and Giratina and Ash catching one another up on their respective knowledge of the future and Team Galactic, Giratina asked Ash to catch him so that he could be trained better in preparation for the battle with Team Galactic, feeling he'd stagnated and was out of practice.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Misty Waterflower]]
Ash's first female companion, who (along with her Pokémon) regains her memories thank's to Ash's aura memory restoration abilities. She once again joins Ash on his initial journey throughout Kanto.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: In the original anime, she's just a Water-Type Gym Leader who is Ash's traveling companion. Here, she has aura training thanks to Ash, [[spoiler:and is now '''''a member of the Elite Four''''']].
* BringingInTheExpert: Ensures that, when Ash and co. [[PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea go to find Samiya]] this time, she's present to supply her expertise.
* CrazyPrepared: Her team has a ''lot'' of ways to deal with Electric-types. Justified as one of her usual sparring partners is [[PersonOfMassDestruction Pikachu]].
* CurbStompBattle: Remember the Invincible Pokémon Brothers who tried to to take over her Gym? Yeah, not so invincible now, are you?
* HopelessBossFight: She was originally going to give Ash one in order to teach him humility, but Ash, being [[IdiotHero Ash]], [[ComicallyMissingThePoint missed the point]] and his determination to win brought the roof down - specifically, the roof of Misty's Gym.
* InSpiteOfANail: Despite Ash's best efforts, her bike was destroyed, unfortunately.
* MamaBear: Is ''very'' protective of Togekiss. She doesn't like when Togekiss goes off to save the day without telling her, and makes sure the gang's visit to the Mirage Kingdom ends with her able to keep Togekiss instead of having to leave her there.
* OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce: Her all-Water-type team is theoretically weak to Electric attacks. Emphasis on theoretically. In practice, Electric-type attacks get neutralized.
* ReverseMole: [[spoiler:Infiltrated Team Aqua to try and stop them from bringing back Kyogre.]]
* ShamuFu: Misty hits Brock with her Goldeen whenever he starts going gaga around women. [[spoiler:Once Brock settles down with a single girlfriend, this gag is dropped entirely]].
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Is one of the candidates to replace ''Lorelei of the Elite Four'']].
** [[spoiler:And by the Silver Conference, '''she ''does'''''.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Is terrified of Bug-Types, just like her incarnation from the original timeline. [[spoiler:Ash later used Aura Purge on her to help her overcome her phobia (read: [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind beat it out of her]])]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Misty's Pokémon]]
!!Goldeen[[spoiler:/Seaking]]
-----
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability, making her one of Misty's main anti-Electric teammembers.
* NoSell: [[spoiler:During Misty's E4 Qualifier battle against Raikou,]] Goldeen [[spoiler:evolves into Seaking and]] gains the aforementioned Lightningrod, which lets her absorb a Thunderbolt intended for Gyarados.
* ShamuFu: Was used by Misty to whack some sense into her companions in the early parts of the story.

!!Staryu
-----
* GeoEffects: Cutting Water Dance creates a super-fine mist that shorts out Electric moves across the whole battlefield.

!!Starmie

!!Horsea/Seadra[[spoiler:/Kingdra]]
-----
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The reason why he wants to evolve into Kingdra. [[spoiler: He gets his wish during the Spell of the Unown arc.]]

!!Psyduck[[spoiler:/Golduck]]
-----
* FourthWallObserver: Along with Abra and Arceus.
* IronicFear: Hates water, despite being a Water-type [[spoiler: and especially despite his evolution being a very good swimmer.]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: Insists he has this, [[spoiler: even after his evolution.]]
* TheReliableOne: Helped manage Misty's bills and mail [[spoiler: while she was undercover in Team Aqua]]. It's very distinct from his canonically ditzy personality. [[spoiler: Though in canon he never learned Calm Mind nor evolved.]]
* ThrowingOffTheDisability: He became a lot more coherent after learning how to control his headaches via Calm Mind. He has to bring the headaches back in order to tap into his psychic powers, but he's okay with that. [[spoiler: Although this is now a non-issue due to evolving into Golduck.]] He still can't swim, though.

!!Togekiss
-----
* BadassAdorable: Became this after [[spoiler: Ho-Oh taught her Sacred Fire.]]
* CosmicRetcon: Due to Ash breaking time, Togekiss was retconned into being Flying/Fairy. It was a strange experience for Togekiss to suddenly be a different type without evolving.
* LikeASonToMe: Misty sees her as her own daughter. Likewise, the feeling is mutual; Togekiss regards her trainer as [[ParentalSubstitute her mother]].
* PlayingWithFire: [[spoiler: Sacred Fire, a gift from Ho-Oh. See below.]]
* SuperEmpowering: [[spoiler:Was taught Sacred Fire by Ho-Oh himself as a birthday present to Togekiss.]]

!!Gyarados
-----
* TheBigGuy: Misty's other Pokémon can be quite strong, but Gyarados is typically brought out for situations that need a lot of power.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:The Lake of Rage incident ends with Misty getting a Keystone and Gyarados getting Gyaradosite.]]

!!Politoed

!!Kabuto[[spoiler:/Kabutops]]
-----
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Is ''very'' grateful towards Misty for her kindness to a [[FishOutOfTemporalWater time-displaced fossil]] like him. This pushes him to fight really hard for her, and it shows.
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline.
* TheQuietOne: Typically communicates with clicks and is rarely, if ever, heard speaking. [[spoiler: That is, until he evolves into Kabutops.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After evolving, most of his fights afterwards are against Legendaries, and he always holds his own]].

!!Corsola

!!Chinchou
-----
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline.

!![[spoiler: Milotic]]
-----
* OriginalCharacter: Wasn't around in the original timeline. She was used as Misty's main battling Pokémon [[spoiler: during her time undercover in Team Aqua so that she wouldn't be recognized]].

!!Azurill

!! Caserin (Luvdisc)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Brock Slate]]
Ash's first constant male companion throughout most of the series. Like Misty, he and his Pokémon regain their memories thanks to Ash. He too, rejoins Ash on their traveling adventures.

Accomplishments:

* Kanto Ribbons: Cerulean City (222).

-----
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: With so many of his team utilising illusions, he's gotten really used to subconsciously navigating around them, such that a wild group of Stantler using illusions on him doesn't even break his stride.
* CasanovaWannabe: Just like his incarnation from the original timeline, Brock flirts with (and fails to attract) every pretty woman he sees. [[spoiler: This was later revealed during the Orange Islands arc to be an attempt to rebuild his broken heart, after failing to save [[TheLostLenore Ivy]] from the same [[FreakLabAccident Unown-created accident]] that trapped [[Anime/{{Pokemon3}} Spencer Hale]] in a pocket dimension in the original timeline. Brock thought she died, and his resulting psychological trauma caused him to have extreme negative reactions whenever people bring up Ivy's name]]. As of the Johto arc onward, this is no longer the case, much to the disbelief of Ash's later companions.
* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler: Professor Ivy, whom Brock loved and [[MyGreatestFailure failed to save from being trapped in a pocket dimension by the Unown]]. Fortunately, Ash's time-travelling allowed him to set things right and save her the second time around]].
* MrExposition: As a Rock-type specialist (despite what his team might lead you to believe), he has a lot of knowledge of geological formations and how they form (though not to the extent of Steven Stone). This makes him the person to explain a lot of [[ShownTheirWork the author's actual knowledge of geology]].
* MyGreatestFailure: Remember his return at the end of the Orange Islands, the hilarious RunningGag of him reacting badly to Ivy's name? We finally find out what happened. [[spoiler: The thing that happened to Spencer Hale happened to her, he couldn't save her, and he thought she was dead... [[YouBastard Still find that funny]]?]]
** MyGreatestSecondChance: ...which gives him a chance to prevent the second time around.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse, he's starting to feel this way about having more illusion Pokemon on his team than Rock types.
** It was so bad that even in the previous timeline, Dawn didn't realize he was a Rock-type specialist.
* OfficialCouple: With Professor Ivy. Ash and Misty can't believe it.
* OutOfFocus: Kinda. While he's still ''there'', of course, there isn't as much focus on his growth as there is on Ash and Misty, as his talents are more geared towards Pokémon care than they are towards battling, regardless of the fact that he's a former Gym Leader.
* PoorPredictableRock: Subverted. He's supposed to be a Rock-type Gym Leader, but only a quarter of his current team even qualifies. [[LampshadeHanging This has not gone without notice]]. During the ''Jirachi: Wish Maker'' arc, he even says his type specialty is "being misleading", [[spoiler:due to having more Pokémon who use illusions than Rock-types]].
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Because he is a Gym Leader deals with Rock-Type Pokémon, his Gym specializes in teaching trainers the lesson of Endurance.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Ever since he got together with Professor Ivy, his flirting antics are practically non-existent, much to the shock of the rest of Ash and Co.
** In fact, he now has to be pointed out when someone's flirting with him.
* SupremeChef: Even Legendaries are impressed by his cooking.
* WeaponOfChoice: His crowbar, which only sees combat when Brock needs to whack any unruly Unown.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Brock's Pokémon]]
!!Geodude
----
* DishingOutDirt: Although this is to be expected by virtue of his typing, one of his training goals is to be able to out-and-out use [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Earthbending]] via his Stone Edge move.
** Finally achieves a breakthrough thanks to Steven Stone.
* ShapingYourAttacks: By virtue of the above training skill, he does this a lot.
* MundaneUtility: Due to his Bending skills, he is often the one to help the team get around obstacles via earth platforms, bridges or structures.

!!Steelix
-----
* SapientSteed: Used like an [=APC=] often, the most notable instance being ''Heroes''.
* [[spoiler:SuperMode: Receives Steelixite courtesy of Steven Stone.]]
* TheWorfEffect: His first [[spoiler: Mega Evolved]] battle ends with him [[TakingTheBullet Taking The Blast Burn]] and getting blown off a cliff after just a few moments.

!!Crobat
-----
* OutOfFocus: Brock mainly uses Steelix and Ninetales, and Stantler and Geodude are seen reasonably often as well. Crobat has been used only very rarely since capture, especially compared to how much it was used after evolving in the show.
* SuperSenses: His sonar has proven really effective when facing off against other illusion-users.
* TheWorfEffect: He hasn't really had much success in battle either.

!!Vulpix[[spoiler:/Ninetales]]
-----
* BattleCouple: With Growlie. Any time Ash teams up with the Rocket Trio the two fight side by side.
* CombatPragmatist: As far as she's concerned, if the other guy is even aiming for the right place things have gone wrong.
* DatingCatwoman: She's happily seeing James' Growlie. Then again, this is kind of debatable seeing as the Team Rocket trio is ultimately on Ash's side.
* MasterOfIllusion: Frequently makes use of her illusions in battle.
* NoSell: Flash Fire makes her completely immune to fire attacks.
* PlayingWithFire: If she's not using illusions, she's throwing around Flamethrowers. Sometimes she does both.
* SquishyWizard: Averted. You'd expect an illusionist who mainly attacks with fire and "supernatural" effects to be weak in melee. You'd be very wrong, as she gets quite a bit of close quarters practice with Growlie.

!!Forretress
-----
* ActionBomb: Exploding is her thing, as in canon.
* ActionGirl: She was revealed to be female in her debut.

!!Stantler
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally appeared early in Johto and returned to his herd at the end of the episode. Here, he decides to join Brock's team.
* ElementalAbsorption: Has Sap Sipper, which turns all Grass-type moves used against him into stat boosts.
* MasterOfIllusion: Not quite a master yet, but he's working on it.
** With a bit of practice, he's capable of layering illusions on top of each other.

!!Ludicolo
-----
* GratuitousSpanish: His species is based on a Mexican dancer, after all.

!!Marshtomp
-----
* ExtremityExtremist: Prefers punching to ranged or other attacks. He's actually one of the few Pokémon who isn't that enthused about expanding his moveset, [[CripplingOverspecialization which has led to problems when it comes to Flying-types]].

!!Flygon
-----
* AscendedExtra: Decides to follow Brock after the events of [[Anime/PokemonJirachiWishmaker Jirachi: Wish Maker]].
* DigAttack: As a once-Trapinch, he can do this, despite having wings.
* SapientSteed: Brock's new primary mode of air travel.

!![[spoiler: Zorua]]
-----
* BigEater: Being a former wild Pokemon, and used to food being scarce, having access to Brock's amazing cooking means that she'll not only scarf down her ''own'' share, but try and shapeshift into other members of the group and get their shares. Ninetales jokes at one point that unless she stops, she'll only be able to turn into Munchlax.
* CaptainCrash: Though she can fly by shapeshifting into a Pokémon with wings, landing is a different story.
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler: It's a trait of the species. Her disguise abilities resulted in her being caught by Professor Ivy for Brock, thinking she was a Rockruff. Brock, when he finds out, is rather amused.]]
* OriginalCharacter: Didn't exist in canon.
* ThePrankster: Occasionally pulls pranks. For example, she once impersonated the Rockruff that Ivy sent him, and another time she pretended to be a sombrero for two hours as part of a plan she and Casper cooked up.
* {{Shapeshifting}}: One of her main powers.
* TastesLikeFriendship: One main factor for her joining Brock's team is Brock's cooking.

!!Sudowoodo
-----
* DishingOutDirt: Brock's first Rock-type since Geodude. Of course, since he looks like a tree, everyone reminds Brock that he ''still'' fits into the trickery theme.

!!Rockruff
She's a real one this time, caught for him by Professor Ivy and picked up while he was visiting before heading off to Sinnoh.
-----
* DishingOutDirt: Pure Rock-Type.

!!Croagunk
-----
* {{Fainting}}: Does this when he hears that his trainer finally has a girlfriend.
* DopeSlap: After getting over the news about Philena, he now says he'll Poison Jab Brock if he looks at other women ''too long''.
** And then it extends to Ash after he asks for help responding to surprise attacks.

!!Chansey
-----
* SeenItAll: Her response to being told they've time-travelled is, "I suppose we ''were'' overdue."

One of Ash's Hoenn traveling companions, an extremely talented coordinator

* ''[[Characters/AshesOfThePastAlliesRivalsAndOtherHumans Allies, Rivals
and the daughter of Petalburg's Gym Leader, Norman. Appeared towards the end of the Orange Islands arc while on vacation and witnessed Ash's battle with the Orange Crew Leader Drake, alongside her little brother Max. Seeing them, Ash decided to preemptively restore their memories, and they later joined Ash for his Hoenn League Challenge.

Accomplishments:

* Hoenn Ribbons: Slateport City (126), Verdanturf City (142), Rubello Town (149), Mossdeep City (167), Pacifidlog Town (176). Hoenn Grand Festival Top Coordinator. Kanto Grand Festival Runner-Up.
* Kanto Ribbons: Saffron City (202), Silver Town (207), Wisteria Town (211), Chrysanthemum Island[[note]]Unconfirmed[[/note]] (217), ? (219).

-----
* AttackPatternAlpha: Instead of [[CallingYourAttacks calling Pokémon attacks]], she has pre-devised battle strategies and attack combinations worked out with her Pokémon, allowing them to perform whole attack chains with just one command that are both unexpected and look extremely good.
* DamselOutOfDistress: When she gets captured by some thieves, she makes use of the starter Pokémon that were captured with her to escape, and even when she gets discovered, manages to hold them off until TheCavalry arrives.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appears two regions before her canon appearance.
* IndyPloy: Enjoys improvisation; one of her Contest strategies is to make use of [[RandomEffectSpell Munchlax's Metronome or Skitty's Assist]] and then go from there.
* MamaBear: Is ''very'' protective of [[spoiler:Manaphy]]. When [[spoiler:Phantom]] captures [[spoiler:Manaphy]], May gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to rescue her baby.
* TookALevelInBadass: Starts learning martial arts from Blaziken.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:May's Pokémon]]
!!Ethan (Porygon/[[spoiler:[=Porygon2=]]])
-----
* BarrierWarrior: Can use Reflect and Light Screen for a variety of uses, including mid-air walls or stepping stones.
* FunWithSubtitles: [[spoiler: After evolving, he can project subtitles [[HeadsUpDisplay in front of May's eyes.]] Or anyone's eyes, in fact]].
* GravityMaster: With the move Gravity, he can not only pull Pokémon harder to the ground, but he can also create horizontal and even reverse gravity.
* MechanicalEvolution[=/=]GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: [[spoiler:Optimizing his processors to remote-control a robot battalion in Anime/PokemonDestinyDeoxys is what triggers his digital evolution.]]
* ShapeshifterWeapon: By reformatting his vector body shapes with Sharpen, he can turn into a variety of objects, even InstantArmor for Blaziken.
** His battle in the Wallace Cup involved him shapeshifting into an entire fleet of {{Cool Plane}}s from all corners of history, from biplanes to jet fighters to even space fighters.
* TranslatorBuddy: Serves as one for May until she masters the Aura translation trick.

!!Blaziken
-----
* DanceBattler
* HeyYouHaymaker: Gives one to the Magma grunt for cutting their cable car cable.
* NotQuiteFlight: Can't technically speaking fly, but can casually jump hundreds of feet and change course midair.
* OverprotectiveDad: Acts like one to May despite not being her actual father. Despite wanting the best for May and keeping her safe, the events of Destiny Deoxys leads to him getting hurt trying to keep her out of harm. Beautifly calls him out on this after it's all over.
* PedestrianCrushesCar: He's hit cars, trucks and ''helicopters'', and they've all come out distinctly second best.
* SheFu: Despite being male, his fighting style contains more than a few handstands, backflips and acrobatics. Then again, he is being trained by a Coordinator and such a style looks ''good'' to watch.
* SuperSpeed: His Speed Boost ability gives him enough pace to outrun [[spoiler: Entei]].
** SpeedBlitz: What happens to anyone who lets his ability build up. Blaziken ends up fast enough to land solid hits on an entire team before the first one hit can recover, and to interrupt incoming attacks with his own.

!!Beautifly
-----
* CallingTheOldManOut: Gives one to Blaziken when she notices he's being too overprotective to May for their own good.
* StickySituation: A combination of Silver Wind and String Shot can turn the entire area into a glitter-glue mess.

!!Skitty
-----
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Like in canon, anything shiny enough to catch her eye is going to be played with until something else comes up.
* AttentionWhore: Downplayed; she gets a little irritated when May and Max don't have time to show affection to her, and instead show it to other Pokémon. Luckily, a few little strokes in the right place easily turns her into a purring fuzzball.
* CatsHateWater: Displays this tendency a few times.
* CuteKitten: As to be expected.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: She may be a little self-obsessed sometimes, but when it comes to her friends and teammates, her supportive personality really shines through.
* RandomEffectSpell: Her Assist, which can even make her use moves from Ash's substantial and utterly ''crazy'' team.
* ValleyGirl: To Ash and his team's dismay, leading Ash to suggest to May that she not learn to speak with Skitty. The author mused that he might have to apologize for this.
** LikeIsLikeAComma: The most common manifestation. Mawile tries to get to the bottom of why she does this, and it's pretty clear that Skitty might not even realize that she's doing it.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: May notes in 219 that she's starting to rely on Assist a bit too much, and resolves to use some [=TMs=] to vary her movepool up a bit.

!!Swablu/Altaria
-----
* AscendedExtra: Agrees to join May, unlike in canon.
* MusicalAssassin: Primarily uses sound-based moves like Sing and Disarming Voice in battle.
* SapientSteed: After evolving, he wants to be this for May. Unfortunately, May's fear of heights makes this difficult.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:May finds an Altarianite, but their bond has too many issues for them to yet Mega Evolve... until their appeal at the Grand Festival]].

!!Glaceon
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: One whole region before her debut. [[spoiler: Who'd have guessed Drew's newly-caught Leafeon would be her mother?]]
* NotQuiteFlight: Can move through the air on an ice-path generated from her paws.

!!Venusaur
-----
* CoolBigSis: Has this air towards the other members of her team.
* GeoEffects: Has Nature Power, and one of her tactics is to manually alter the battlefield to get the effect she wants.
* StatusBuff: Can use Growth to increase her size.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:May acquired a Venusaurite for her during her Johto travels, which is first revealed to her friends shortly after the Wallace Cup.]]

!!Spoink/[[spoiler:Grumpig]]
-----
* AccidentalKidnapping: Is caught by May by complete accident, when he mistakes a pink Love Ball on her person as his pearl.
* AmplifierArtifact: Spoink's pearl enhances his PsychicPowers, which means he initially sees it as a bit of a crutch. He gets extremely flustered and short-sighted whenever he loses it, which [[TheKlutz happens a fair bit]].
* AscendedExtra: Appears in a couple of canon episodes, but is caught by May this time around.
* JuggleFu: With his PsychicPowers, he can juggle several objects, his pearl, and even ''himself''.
* LimbSensationFascination: [[spoiler:Fascinated with his legs after evolution]].
* PsychoactivePowers: Spoink's psychic powers are tied to his confidence, but they often take a nosedive whenever he loses his pearl. Once he overcomes it and no longer sees it as necessary, this eventually leads [[spoiler: to his evolution]].

!!Munchlax
-----
* ConfusionFu: With his [[RandomEffectSpell Metronome]], the unpredictability perfectly complements May's IndyPloy strategies.
* ObsessedWithFood: May's strategy names for him are even named after berry flavors.

!!Wartortle
-----
* CrazyPrepared: Carries pre-made musical number parts to use in {{Training Montage}}s.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Can shape the water she uses into constructs, like wings.
* WhiteSheep: Is the only member of the Squirtle line to date that is ''not'' {{Otaku}}ing over anything. Or at least that's what ''[[UnreliableNarrator she]]'' says - the fact that she has sheet music on-hand for songs like ''[[Disney/{{Mulan}} I'll Make a Man Out of You]]'', and that she helped [[spoiler: Manaphy]] learn waterbending by [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid singing how it's better underwater in a funny accent]] says something different.
** Several of the group's other Pokemon assumed her obsession was WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender, due to her ShapingYourAttacks being much like waterbending. Wartortle says she's never heard of it.

!![[spoiler: Manaphy]]
-----
* DamselOutOfDistress: GenderInverted, [[spoiler:in 212, the Phantom Pirates manage to capture him, but he manages to escape on his own]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler: Lugia]] dropped off his egg long before his movie started.
* ElementalShapeshifting: Knows Acid Armour.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Via [[spoiler: Heart Swap]].
* LikeASonToMe: For May.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Learned how to make water wings from Wartortle. And that's only the start of his [[MakingASplash waterbending]].

!!Joltik
-----
* FluffyDryCat: Her effect on May's hair. As predicted by Absol.
* HeadPet: Small enough to be carried around on May's head or shoulders.
* ICantHearYou: She's so tiny that the others can barely hear her, even when she's shouting.
* OriginalCharacter: May didn't have her in canon; she was got at the daycare where she got Glaceon in the original timeline.
* ThePhilosopher: Her train of thought often goes off into bents of philosophy, much like a [[Manga/GhostInTheShell Tachikoma AI]].
-->'''Pikachu:''' You're so small you can use a coin as a bed.
-->'''Joltik:''' Yes. The juxtaposition of a symbol of profit and the gentle repose of the individual is an odd one, but I don't think it has any significance worthy of note.
* SecretWeapon: Is used as this against Solidad at the Kanto Grand Festival; since May has never used her before, [[AwesomenessByAnalysis Solidad]] can't prepare for her.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Thanks to said philosophical mindset, she can get overly verbose.

[[folder:Max Maple]]
Another of Ash's (future) traveling companions, a child prodigy with an encyclopaedic-level of Pokémon knowledge. He is the son of Petalburg's Gym Leader, Norman, and the younger brother of May Maple. He appeared towards the end of the Orange Islands arc along with his sister, and had his memories restored by Ash.

[[folder:Max's Pokémon]]
!!Kris (Porygon)

Max's first Pokémon, courtesy of Ash.
-----
* AdaptiveAbility: Makes the most use of Conversion and [=Conversion2=] out of all the Porygon.
* TheLittleDetecto: Gets loaded with Mega Stone detection software courtesy of Mr. Stone.
* TranslatorBuddy: Serves as one for Max until he masters the Aura translation trick.

!!Arc (Electrike/Manectric)

Max's starter.
-----
* BigFriendlyDog: Can take on this air at times, especially after evolving.
* ElementalAbsorption: Has the Lightningrod Ability.
* NitroBoost: As typical of his evolutionary line, he can channel his electricity into his muscles for a burst of speed, commonly used for [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming]].
* RunningGag: While he settled on Arc as a nickname, it took him a while, requiring Max to often take out a list of nicknames so that he could make up his mind: Watt, Ohm, Volta, Coulomb...
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Right after evolving, he manages to Mega Evolve via the Manectite gotten [[ChekhovsGun all the way back in the Sea Mauville.]]]]

!!Guy (Shroomish/Breloom)
-----
* AscendedExtra: In the original timeline, he just befriended Max. This time around, due to Max being a full-fledged trainer, he can join his team.
* TheBigGuy: The CloseRangeCombatant out of Max's team, and the one with the most raw muscle.
* FantasticFightingStyle: [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Since he can just regenerate damage]], Primeape is helping him develop a strength-focused fighting style that does not care about taking damage to dish it out.
* [[FeedItWithFire Feed It With Poison]]: Has the ability Poison Heal, and carries a Toxic Orb to make full use of it.
* {{Homage}}: He was named after [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Might Guy]]. His fighting style even resembles Might Guy's Goken (Strong Fist).
* MeteorMove: His Leaf Storm and Leaf Tornado [[AttackPatternAlpha striking combos]], another {{Homage}} to his namesake. Opponents facing him often prepare for [[NamesTheSame the actual moves]] until they realize that Breloom can't learn them.
* PunnyName: Guy. [[DontExplainTheJoke As in, Fungi/Fun Guy]].
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: How he uses his Seed Bombs.

!!Cinder (Poochyena/Mightyena)
-----
* AscendedExtra: In the original timeline, she just befriended Max. This time around, due to Max being a full-fledged trainer, she can join his team.
* ButtBiter: She attacks Sabrina's Kadabra this way.
* CombatPragmatist: Scaring enemies unconscious? Latching on and not letting go? Yep, that's her.
** She's even capable of using Payback ''before'' an enemy attacks by justifying it as preemptive retribution.
* IJustWantToBeBadass: She really, ''really'' wanted to evolve. Lucky for her, all she had to do was meet Ash.
* OneSteveLimit: Why Max does not nickname her "Ash" or "Ashes".
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Given that she is a frequent target for Casper's pranks, this is her sentiment when she has to partner with him during the Mossdeep Gym battle.
* TerrorHero: Plays this up during her battle against Sabrina, scaring her Espeon foe out of his mind to the point that he apparently faints out of sheer ''fear''.
** In her Dark City Gym battle, her Scrafty opponent elects to [[KnowWhenToFoldEm pretend to faint]] after she threw him around like a rag doll by the tail, and was coming to do more.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Makes use of a lot of biting moves, which allow her to use many different elements while attacking the same way.
* YouFightLikeACow: How she uses Swagger on her Scyther opponent during the Dark City Gym battle, insulting his abilities as a Flying Type.

!!Delta (Mantyke/Mantine)
-----
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: After evolving, he's strong enough to carry Max himself.

!![[spoiler:Jirachi]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* BigEater: Likes making giant sandwiches.
* BulletHell: Can create the minefield version using Future Sight.
* CripplingOverspecialization: See WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer.
* ImmortalImmaturity: Technically several thousand years old at least, but because he's only been awake a week at a time every millenia, he doesn't ''act'' nearly that old.
* LiteralGenie: [[spoiler:It's not his fault, but he doesn't fully control his powers; whether it's due to youth or nature is yet to be seen]].
* OddNameOut: The only one of Max's active roster without a nickname. This is lampshaded a few times, and a few suggestion have been floated by, but nothing's stuck so far.
* PowerCopying: Knows Skill Swap.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Due to being a Psychic-Type, he can do this, which runs into problems with the team's Dark-types, since they're immune to all Psychic-Type abilities.
* TookALevelInBadass: Displays a more varied move pool in Max's Kanto League, including using his teleportation in battle more, Skill Swap, and Hyper Beam.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: He is defeated by Sabrina and Mew because his Future Sight trick is his main attack. Sabrina even lampshades it.
** The third Sinnoh chapter also brings this up, as he's looking through a TM catalogue to decide what moves he should try and learn to vary his movepool.

!!Casper (Shuppet/Banette)
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* {{Corpsing}}: Has a problem with the giggles whenever he plays a prank.
* LimbSensationFascination: Is very happy to have gotten hands after evolving.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Knows Screech.
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Evolves mid-battle against Sabrina, only to get knocked out.
* ThePrankster: Is one, with Cinder being a frequent target of his practical humor. This ends up causing problems for Max during the Gym battle against Tate and Liza, [[TeethClenchedTeamwork given that Casper is partnered with Cinder.]]
* ShoutOut: His name is one to WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: The group found a Banettite all the way back in Hoenn, but his and Max's bonds have too many issues for Casper to Mega-Evolve. They finally get it when he has a Gym Battle against the Sensational Sisters.]]
* ThinkingUpPortals: An aspect of his Phantom Force move.

!!Roland (Ralts/Kirlia[[spoiler:/Gallade]])
-----
* AscendedExtra: As with many of Max's Pokémon whom he met in the original series.
* BifurcatedWeapon: [[spoiler: As Gallade]], he's learned how to temporarily fuse his different blade moves into double-sided (if fragile) energy swords, giving him more options in battle.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: When he evolves into Kirlia. His sister wants to take full advantage and put him in dresses and ribbons she got from May's stuff, much to his dismay.
* PowerCopying: One of his abilities is Trace.
* PowerParasite: Knows Snatch.
* SpellBlade: [[spoiler: After evolving into Gallade]], he's learned a multitude of blade moves that he can imbue his arms with, and swap through them rapidly and at will.
* TastesLikePurple: Already has a name, but can only be communicated through psychic powers and a number of weird sensations.
--> '''Max''': Why can I taste caramel and chocolate? And... it sounds kind of like a wind chime, and I think I can see purple?
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Learned Teleport between Max first meeting him and the time travel incident.
** TeleportSpam: [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer And he's very good at using them to his full potential]], as shown in his first real battle in the Ever Grande Conference. [[spoiler:After evolving, he forces Forrest, who's using ''Steelix'', to surrender by repeatedly teleporting Steelix up and dropping him into the ground]].

!!Corona (Charmander)
-----
* NotQuiteFlight: Combining and {{Shaping| Your Attacks}} her Flare Blitz and Flame Charge into a dragon-shaped BattleAura allows her to take flight, at least for a while.
* OriginalCharacter: She is a starter Pokémon taken from Professor Oak's lab.
* WreathedInFlames: Knows Flare Blitz and Flame Charge, which by now have become her primary moves.

!!Ferris (Aron)
-----
* ExtremeOmnivore: At one point he has to be stopped from [[EatDirtCheap eating a metal tray]], instead of just the food on it.
* TheGlomp: Absol predicted "tackle-glomping" as a disaster when Max chose his egg. Considering his weight, that makes sense.
* LightningBruiser: Has Dragon Rush as an egg move, allowing him to put on a burst of speed and catch his foes off guard.
* OriginalCharacter: Hatched from an egg Max got at the Pokémon Day Care.
* TheQuietOne: Prefers simple but concise gestures to talking.
* UseYourHead: Has decided that headbutting his foes is going to be his preferred tactic.

!![[spoiler: Deoxys-Orange]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: Originally from the ''[[spoiler: Pokémon Ranger - Deoxys' Crisis!]]'' two-parter, he accidentally gets caught by Max.
* CommutingOnABus: After being caught, he decides to let Max keep his Pokéball so he can't be caught by anyone else, then leaves with a transceiver so he can return as needed.
* ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud: Like other [[spoiler: Deoxys]].
* SenseFreak: Being a being with NoMouth, eating and tasting is a new experience for him, especially Brock's cooking.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Has to be told by Ferris to shorten his thought patterns several times.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dawn Berlitz]]
Yet another of Ash's (future) traveling companions, an extremely talented coordinator from the Sinnoh region (and the daughter of Johanna, herself a past Top Coordinator), who met up with Ash at the Hoenn Grand Festival and had her memories restored. Currently traveling with Ash and Brock through Sinnoh.

Accomplishments:

* Sinnoh Ribbons: Jubilife City (241), Hearthome City (254), Wallace Cup (Aqua Ribbon) (260)

-----
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Brock getting a girlfriend is the one part of Ash and company's tale that she ''doesn't'' accept almost immediately.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday[=/=]SeenItAll: Whereas her mother is completely overwhelmed by Ash and Co., Dawn acclimates to the situation very quickly. After her memories are restored, she notes that things are only "weirder than usual". Brock having a steady girlfriend is the one thing she finds unusual.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Appears two regions before her canon appearance.
** And her Pokémon start appearing in her backyard soon after. ''All of them''.
* FlatWhat: Her reaction to learning that Brock has a girlfriend.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: She accepts everything about the time travel with little to no difficulty (though she demands more detailed explanations for the bigger stuff), but Brock actually having a steady girlfriend is something she just can't wrap her head around.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dawn's Pokémon]]
!!Piplup
-----
* BadassAdorable: And he plans to keep it that way via an Everstone.
* SilentSnarker: While Dawn was still learning how to understand him, Piplup was still able to lampshade the HypocriticalHumor in Dawn pointing out Ash's Suicine showing off.
* SwordFight: Can fence with his lengthened beak while using Peck.
* TheNapoleon: Despite his short statue, he's very full of himself.

!!Buneary
-----
* ShapingYourAttacks: Pikachu's training enabled her to sculpt oversized limbs out of elemental energy.
* ShipTease: Still has a crush on Pikachu.
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: Piplup manages to convince her to not run off by telling her things that she hadn't told ''anyone'' at that point in the timeline.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Pikachu. Pikachu admits that he'd had a bad first impression of her, and is willing to start over from the beginning to see if there is anything between them.

!!Pachirisu
-----
* MascotsLoveSugar: Really likes her sweet Poffins.
* TastesLikeFriendship: While she was still uncaptured, Dawn befriended her by feeding her hazelnut snacks.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Nuts. It's been {{Lampshaded}} a few times.

!!Mamoswine
-----
* TheBigGuy: Easily Dawn's biggest Pokémon.
* GrumpyBear: Compared to the rest of Dawn's cute and cuddly team, he's definitely a lot gruffer.
* ImpossiblyGracefulGiant: He can ice-skate, though you wouldn't think it from his size.

!!Quilava
-----
* SitcomArchNemesis: Argues with Piplup about the most inane topics, everything from architecture to topiary. [[VitriolicBestBuds Buneary believes that they both enjoy it]].

!!Togekiss
-----
* CommutingOnABus: Her time is negotiated to be shared between Dawn and Princess Salvia.

!!Ambipom
The last of Dawn's canon Pokémon (excluding Buizel) to be introduced, she falls on Ash's head when he's on his way to the Battle Pyramid and is delivered to Dawn afterward.
-----
* MartialArtsAndCrafts: Is a fourth dan black belt in Ping-Pong.
* SeenItAll: Subverted, unlike the rest of the Sinnoh cast; she needs a bit of time to come to terms with all the changes. This is apparently due to not being around for the incident with Arceus in Sinnoh.
** She ''was'' around for the collapse of space-time in Alamos Town, as Pikachu argues, but apparently that didn't convince her of the group being a WeirdnessMagnet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Iris]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Unova region, and an aspiring Dragon Master. Initially shown during her time at the Opelucid Academy, before she decides to drop out. Iris eventually runs into Keldeo during the early parts of the Sinnoh arc, and Ash pays a visit to Unova in order to remind her.
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing in the late Hoenn arc, several chapters earlier than Dawn.
* FanGirl: Iris appears to have a case of this towards Ash. She had a poster of of him next to her other idols [[WorldsStrongestMan Lance and Cynthia]], and believes he would never have obedience issues with his Pokémon. ''Very'' ironic, considering her [[VitriolicBestBuds attitude]] towards him in canon.
** Excadrill mentions the posters once they're reminded, and Pikachu finds it completely hilarious.
* HeroicBSOD: She has... difficulty reconciling the [[IdiotHero Ash]] she remembers with the [[TheAce Ash Ketchum]] that she's heard so much about. In particular, she's astonished to learn that he was a WeirdnessMagnet ''long'' before meeting her.
* LoopholeAbuse: Iris is given an assignment to detail the history of Unova's Gyms. She finds this difficult, but upon re-reading the assignment, decides that she can just write about the Opelucid Gym instead. She finds that much more interesting.
* TookALevelInKindness: After being reminded and finding out about Ash's numerous accomplishments (including those from the original timeline), she apologizes for her dismissive attitude.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Still doesn't like ice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Iris's Pokémon]]

!!Excadrill
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: Prior to Iris meeting up with Ash, Excadrill was still in this phase.
* CannotKeepASecret: Casually mentions that Iris has Ash posters immediately after being reminded, much to his Trainer's embarassment.
* NoHeroToHisValet: Even after being reminded and becoming aware of the changed timeline, he's completely unimpressed by Ash and Pikachu, even repeating Iris's "such a kid" line.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Didn't really like Iris or her other Pokémon, prior to being reminded.

!![[spoiler: Fraxure]]
-----
* AscendedExtra: He was an Opelucid Academy Pokémon assigned to be Iris's partner during her tenure there, but Drayden decided to give him to her permanently on account of the bond they developed.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cilan]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Unova region, and one of the three Striaton City Gym Leaders. Hasn't met with Ash yet; he first appears in the story during the Hoenn League, at which point he and his brothers are starting up their gym.
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing late in the Hoenn arc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Serena]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Kalos region and currently Dawn's pen pal. Although at the right age to become a trainer, her mother Grace has kept trying to steer her into Rhyhorn racing, which is a point of contention between them.
-----
* CelebCrush: After learning her connection to Ash, she seems to be developing one on him, maybe mixed with a bit of HeroWorship.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Starts appearing in the Kanto Battle Frontier arc as Dawn's pen pal.
* TakeAThirdOption: She and her mother eventually compromise and allow her to get a Pokémon that's not a Rhyhorn, but is still ride-able. Serena eventually finds a Blitzle who likes the riding idea (at least when he gets bigger).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Clemont]]
One of Ash's future traveling companions from the Kalos region.
-----
* ChildProdigy: At the age of 8, he provided invaluable assistance to Ariadospace [[spoiler: during the Delta Episode meteor crisis]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Made his first appearance at the end of Hoenn, [[spoiler: during the Delta Episode]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gary Oak]]
Ash's former rival, now one of his closest friends. In the original timeline, after having retired from Pokémon League competition to become a researcher, Gary attempted to thwart Cyrus' attempt to reshape the world, only to fail. Ash restored his memories, and now Gary goes around investigating the numerous changes to the timeline that Ash's time traveling adventure is causing (particularly Mega Evolution). Unlike those mentioned above, Gary's Pokémon were not restored, as Ash didn't know them well enough to do so.

Accomplishments:

* Kanto: Indigo League runner-up.
* Kalos: Kalos League Champion.

-----

* ButtMonkey: If anything bad can happen, odds are it's going to happen to Gary. The poor guy has a lot of crap happen at his expense, most notably the below ChainOfDeals. Seeing as his grandfather tends to suffer similarly thanks to Ash's eccentric Pokémon, it's probably hereditary. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in an Author's Note: "Being Gary Oak is suffering".
** ThrowTheDogABone: For all his troubles, [[spoiler:he gets a piece of Blastoisinite and a Key Stone, and eventually his research gets published in ''Pokémon'' journal, even ending up on the cover]].
** He even subverts CantCatchUp by [[spoiler:winning the Kalos League]].
* ChainOfDeals: Gary found himself in one trying to teach Alakazam Teleport. [[labelnote:The full chain]]Gary needs to borrow Oak's Dragonite because there's a man in Geosenge who will give a fossil to someone who shows him a fully-evolved Dragon-type. From the fossil he'll get an Anorinth that can be traded for a Liepard, that traded for a Swoobat, that for a Clefairy, and that for a Gyarados, who can be shown to Marie in Camphrier for a letter. The letter is to be given to Jacques who will give him a Farfetch'd that can be traded for a Beartic and then that for a shiny Furfrou. Furfrou is then to get a haircut and be shown to Gym Leader Valerie to get a Focus Sash that can be traded for a Silk Sash. That is to be given to a girl in Luminose for a Pokémon that can dance, and after showing a dancing Pokémon to a certain guy he will get the Heart Scale he needs to give to the Move Relearner as payment for him having Alakazam re-learn Teleport.[[/labelnote]] Prof. Oak manages to derail the Chain by telling Gary that Misty has a Gyarados she would most likely let him borrow, Oak knows someone with a Clefairy and both Silk and Focus Sashes, Ash's Totodile can dance, Oak has about twenty Heart Scales just lying around the lab, and when Muk ate the [=TMs=] like cookies he didn't eat the Teleport [=TM=]. Gary is understandably pissed, but winds up accepting the TM and borrowing Dragonite and Gyarados, allowing him to complete at least part of the chain and get an Anorith and a Furfrou out of it.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Even excluding all his other adventures, in the original timeline, he was battling Cyrus trying to prevent the collapse of time.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: His Kalos League victory]].
* TheCallPutMeOnHold: [[spoiler: Although not noticeable at the time, he was initially unable to be reminded due to being at the epicenter of the old timeline's collapse, but the Lake Trio and Celebi fixed it before Ash met Gary again during the Kanto P1 Grand Prix]].
* TheMentor: To Molly on her Sinnoh journey.
* TheSleepless: Due to the time difference between Poké-Japan (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh) and Poké-France (Kalos), interacting with Ash and co. really cuts down on his sleep time, which happens more often than he likes.
* TheSmartGuy: For Ash's friends, being a Pokémon researcher in training and all.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gary's Pokémon]]
!!Blastoise
-----
* {{Expy}}: Of post-TimeSkip [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon]]. Thanks, Squirtle.
* LargeHam: Again, thanks, Squirtle.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: With sufficient water control, he can do this with water missiles. [[ThisIsADrill Drill-headed water missiles]].
* ShapingYourAttacks: When using Dragon Pulse, he turns it into a gigantic dragon construct like Siebold.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Thanks to his new piece of Blastoisinite, implanted into his Simon-style star-sunglasses.]]

!!Dee (Porygon)
-----
* TheSmartGuy: Of Gary's Pokémon. Again, it's justified as she's a computer like Dexter.
* TranslatorBuddy: With a Bluetooth earpiece, she helps Gary understand Poké-speech.

!!Umbreon
-----
* BarrierWarrior: Has really trained up her Reflect and Light Screen shield moves.
* BerserkButton: Don't insult her mother, not even by accident.
** Or rather, don't speak ill of the Umbreon ''species,'' as doing so would include her mother.
* CombatPragmatist: She isn't above using the fact that she's adorable to her advantage in a fight. She ''is'' a Dark-type, after all.
* PoisonousPerson: Knows Toxic. She uses this to deliver a CurbStompBattle to Valerie's Sylveon.
* TheLeader: She's essentially this to Gary's team.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: She holds her mother in high regard, which is why she wanted to evolve into Umbreon.
* StealthHiBye: How she introduces herself to Sableye after Ash & Gary's trade.

!!Nidoqueen

!!Fearow
-----
* FoodAsBribe: How Gary keeps him in line.
* ForWantOfANail: In the original timeline, he was the leader of the Spearow flock that Ash and Pikachu encountered at the beginning of their journey and remained a wild Pokémon. Since Ash avoided him this time around, Gary ran into him instead and caught him.
* PsychoSidekick: Gary has to resort to bribery (with food) to keep him in line.

!!Alakazam
-----
* AttackDrone: How his extra spoons work when [[spoiler: he is Mega-Evolved]], as he can fire beam attacks from them and even charge them with elemental punch attacks.
* OnlySaneMan: Gary tries to argue at one point that he is this for his Pokemon, by Alakazam standards at least.
* NobodyTouchesTheHair: Gets alarmed at Furfrou's suggestion of styling his mustache.
* TheSmartGuy: Very intelligent, though we have yet to see it in battle.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: His Teleport is the only way for Gary to get to and from Kalos in any appreciable time.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: Has an Alakazamite that he makes good use of.]]

!!Arcanine
-----
* WallJump[=/=]LeParkour: What he likes to practice, ruining Gary's image of him as the OnlySaneMan.

!!Furfrou
-----
* ActionFashionista: Not even using Surf underground will get mud on her fabulous coat. That would be barbaric.
** [[CoveredInGunge Battling a Goomy, on the other hand...]]
* CulturedBadass: Has very exquisite and refined habits, such as keeping up with fashion and drinking artisan coffee. The rest of her team don't quite understand it.
* StoneWall: Her ability, Fur Coat, halves physical damage, and between that, [[StatusBuff Cotton Guard]] and Charm, it means that she doesn't take much damage even from Super Effective Fighting-Type moves. Has a bit of trouble ''dealing'' damage, at least to tough opponents like Lucario.
** So much so that even [[GlassCannon Primeape]] can't do much to her and her fur.

!!Anorith

!!Sableye
The Mega-Evolution-capable Pokémon Ash traded to Gary.
-----
* EatDirtCheap: Loves eating gemstones, as per his species.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: After Ash's battle to catch him, he talks about trading him to his friend Gary to help with Mega-Evolution research, and that Gary can get his hands on Sablenite. Sableye immediately exclaims that if he had said that first, he wouldn't have bothered fighting.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: With his huge gemstone shield, he can perform all the classic popular shield maneuvers like ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks and ShieldBash.
* StoneWall: His Mega-Evolution focuses mainly on defense.
* SuperMode: Can Mega Evolve.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tracey Sketchit]]
Another of Ash's companions who has his memories restored. He travels with Ash and Misty during the Orange Islands arc before settling down as Professor Oak's assistant (again).

* NotSoDifferent: His philosophy about what sketches and drawings can capture better than photos is very similar to Todd Snap's philosophy about what photos can capture better than drawings. This is Lampshaded when the two of them meet.
* OutOfFocus: Since a lot of the action is where Ash is, Tracey doesn't get a lot of screentime once the Orange Islands Arc ends.
* TheMentor: To Molly during her studies to become a Trainer before the age of ten. Gary takes over the role when she heads off to Sinnoh with him.
* TookALevelInBadass: Thanks to Ash, his Scyther evolves into a Scizor, strengthening him up enough to counter his old age.
[[/folder]]

!!The Rocket Trio and their Pokémon

[[folder:Tropes that apply to all three of them]]
* AchievementsInIgnorance: The readers on the Spacebattles thread note that the trio actually has multiple talents (machinery operation, business acumen, etc.), but their focus on being criminals prevents them from being successful through legitimate means. Now that they are successful Team Rocket agents (admins even, with Giovanni's direct approval no less), they focus on these other pursuits.
* AdaptationalBadass: ''Oh yes''. Thanks to Ash's memory restoration, they acquired new skills that allowed them to be more competent than they were in the original timeline. And after fulfilling Giovanni's SecretTestOfCharacter, they RankUp to Rocket Executives and PR agents for Team Rocket. And they ''stay that way''. Oh, and Meowth becomes a {{Ninja}} thanks to Koga's Meowzie teaching him.
** Their Pokémon get in on this, too. Besides Meowth, those that were already in the roster evolve and get new moves, while newcomers include [[spoiler:an Audino who is a SupremeChef, a cosplaying ''Pikachu'', and a freakin' '''''Moltres''''']].
* BadassCrew: Giovanni holds them and their abilities in incredibly high regard, a very stark contrast to the original anime. They more than live up to his new expectations.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Is viewed as this by Giovanni; they are certain strange but also are ''very'' effective. This holds true in reality as well; they are, in fact, that badass but also still tend towards being... odd.
* CoolPlane: Has used several in place of their old Meowth balloon, but they seem to have settled on a modified [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_C-130_Hercules C-130 Machamp]] tiltrotor. And they've used it for many a GunshipRescue.
* CurbStompBattle: Thanks to Ash giving them their memories of the original timeline, the first thing they do after encountering the Poison-Type poacher Rico (who originally forced them to release Arbok and Weezing) is to hand him his ass.
* DungeonBypass: Using Abra's Teleport, they do this and skip the entire obstacle course in the Fuchsia Gym. Koga's response is to promptly [[ObviousRulePatch disallow the usage of Teleport for future challengers]].
* EvilVersusOblivion: Besides gathering good PR for Team Rocket, the Rocket Trio's purpose is to stop villains from ruining the world in any way because in a destroyed world, you can't rule or make a profit. Giovanni knows it, so he sends the Rocket Trio to disaster areas to help Ash and co. because usually that's where the kids would be.
* FriendlyEnemy: Ash knows them well enough to restore the memories of all three and the Pokémon they had at the time. There's no way that would've been possible if this trope wasn't in play.
* HonoraryTrueCompanion: To Ash and co., thanks to Ash restoring their (and their Pokémon's) memories of the original timeline. In spite of all that's transpired between them, it becomes very clear that on some level, he regards the trio as very close friends. As the fic goes on, Team Rocket eventually stops attacking Ash altogether and is content hanging out with him, Misty, and Brock whenever they cross paths, any previous hostility having long-since dissipated... which usually leaves new Pokémon who were with Ash in the ''previous'' timeline to be rather confused when Team Rocket shows up, and instead of reciting the motto and attempting to steal them, instead sit down for a chat.
* LaserGuidedKarma: The rare good variation. Towards the end of ''Voice of the Forest'', Team Rocket had Pikachu's Poké-ball and a sure-fire chance of ''finally'' capturing him. After much deliberation, they make the decision to return it to Ash, even though they have waited ''years'' for this sort of opportunity. Knowing all this, one can't help but feel that the universe was rewarding them for their selflessness [[spoiler:by having Wallace give them their own Pikachu]].
* MuggingTheMonster: Thanks to Ash restoring the Rocket Trio's memories, the Poison-type poacher Rico (who originally forced them to release Arbok and Weezing) got his ass handed to him on a silver platter.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Given their ridiculous appearance, yet undeniable competence, Giovanni sees them as this.
-->'''Giovanni:''' You know, I can't tell if you're hyper-competent and just ''look'' silly, or you're the luckiest people who don't actually have a Victini.
* RankUp: Thanks to a SecretTestOfCharacter, the trio are admins now. Sure, they only qualified for the lowest rung of the executive branch, but it's a step up nonetheless.
* ReverseMole: Ultimately, they are working with Ash to prevent the disaster that ends the world, and in the meantime they're putting on a good show for Giovanni while aiding Ash is other situations - including staged battles between the Rockets and Ash that make both look good. It just so happens, however, that Giovanni is just as interested in keeping the world safe as they are and sees them as perfect agents to head off rogue Rockets, other evil Teams and other disasters, so even though he doesn't know about their true allegiances he makes it easy for them without having to [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten eat any kittens]]. Their job becomes especially easy when Giovanni orders them to stop "attacking" Ash and co. and focus on global threats entirely. However, they still have to make sure nobody figures out that the two groups are actually ''friends'' as opposed to just happening to run into each other.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To all of Team Rocket, though most of the other Rockets believe that everything they do is on Giovanni's orders (which it ''technically'' is). Giovanni himself seems to realize that they're not particularly evil, but [[VillainWithGoodPublicity he doesn't mind because he needs agents like that for PR purposes.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Unlike in the anime, the levels stick. Their increased competency astonishes both Brock and Misty, who only ever knew them as their incompetent incarnations. Add to the fact that Team Rocket has gained many new, powerful Pokémon, and it's probably a good thing that they don't hound Ash as much and are technically on his side.
** It really says something when ''Giovanni'' acknowledges their competency and outright admits, ''to their faces'', that he wished that his agents were as good as they are.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: Because of all those lectures they gave on Ash to the rest of Team Rocket so everyone knows to stay clear of him, particularly emphasizing how strong his Pokémon are, when Ash and Co. show up to stop him, The Iron-Masked Marauder knew precisely which Pokémon to throw his Dark Balls at]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: On top of being one of Team Rocket's best teams, most of the PR work Team Rocket has been doing since the time travel mainly involves them. It started when they participated in the Kanto Gym Challenge and placed third at the Indigo League, and spearheaded from there. Since then they are visibly seen at many of Ash's world-saving trials (which is often covered by the news) and have participated at many other well-covered events such as the Pokéathlon. Because of this and their new executive status, they enjoy a great amount of freedom that most other Rocket teams lack, which they use to pursue non-criminal pursuits (in fact, Jessie, James, and co. haven't committed or even tried to commit an actual crime since the end of Kanto). Their lack of crime has become so prevalent in the later chapters that really the only thing that makes them "villains" is the fact that they're members of a criminal organization, and even then one that has proven to be the most relatively benign in the narrative.

[[folder:Jessie]]
Accomplishments:

* Hoenn Ribbons: 5 unknown ribbons.
* Kanto Ribbons: 5 unknown ribbons. Kanto Grand Festival Top Coordinator.

-----
* HoldYourHippogriffs: At one point Jessie mentions wanting to put a Ponyta in Jessebelle's bed. The other Rockets were confused until she elaborated that it would set the bed on fire and probably break a lot of her stuff while trying to escape.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Is still domineering towards the other members of her cell (especially when it comes to contests), but is loyal to her team nonetheless.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:James]]
-----
* {{Crossdresser}}: Still enjoys dressing up as women, for events like taking Jessie's place during a contest.
* [[ChickMagnet Grass-type Magnet]]: Something about the way he smells and feels is the reason he keeps getting [[TheGlomp glomped]] by his Grass-types. Culminates in him getting dog-piled at a Grass Pokémon reserve.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Meowth]]
-----
* {{Ninja}}: Given his moveset includes Substitute, Faint Attack and shuriken-esque Pay Day, not surprising.
* TookALevelInBadass: Even after getting his memories restored, Meowth found that most of his talents was in translating. While Jessie and James were completing their Fuschia Gym challenge, Koga's own Meowth helped show him how to finally use Pay Day, which inspired him to really expand his moveset.

[[folder:The Rocket Trio's Pokémon]]
!!Arbok
-----
* CulturedBadass: Has a penchant for theater, from Japanese Noh plays to Creator/GilbertAndSullivan.

!!Weezing
-----
* OutOfFocus: Appeared with Victreebel more often in the Kanto-Johto sagas, but has appeared less due to the additions to the team both from the original timeline and the new timeline.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often seen with Victreebel.

!!Growlie (Arcanine)
-----
* AscendedExtra: He joins James full-time after meeting him again a lot sooner than in canon.
* BattleCouple: With Ninetales. Any time Ash teams up with the Team Rocket Trio the two fight side by side.
* DatingCatwoman: With Brock's Ninetales. Though it's somewhat debatable considering that the trio and their Pokémon are ultimately on Ash's side.
* LightningBruiser: Can dish out and take a lot of punishment, and even before using Extremespeed he's one of the fastest non-legendaries.

!!Gyarados
-----
* ExtremeOmnivore: An unintentional example; Gyarados often ends up swallowing things that get too close to his mouth, like a race baton and a cellphone.
* PetTheDog: The Rocket Trio decides to keep Magikarp this time around, letting him evolve into Gyarados.

!!Abra
-----
* BrilliantButLazy: Despite being unevolved, he's ridiculously strong, yet being an Abra, all he wants to do is sleep.
* FourthWallObserver: Along with Psyduck and Arceus.
* KillerRabbit: You wouldn't think that an unevolved Pokémon like him has enough psychic power to hit way above his weight class or do a [[spoiler: space-to-earth teleport]], but he does.
* LaboriousLaziness: Willing to go to great lengths and is capable of pulling off great feats, all in the name of getting just a little more sleep.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In accordance to his LaboriousLaziness, he always uses telepathy, even with other Pokémon. So when he actually speaks, you know it's something serious.
* OriginalCharacter: He wasn't there with the Rocket Trio in the original timeline.
* PsychicPowers: Is a Psychic-Type, so naturally among his moves include Teleport and {{Telepathy}}.

!!Cubone/Marowak
-----
* BadWithTheBone:
Other than just her regular bone weapon, her Reality Marble can create the bones of other Pokémon for her to use as weapons. And they still carry the elemental nature of their types, so manifested bones of Dark-types can block Psychic attacks.
Humans]]''
* BrokenBird: She's carrying a lot of pain ''[[Characters/AshesOfThePastVillainsAndEnemyTeams Villains and regret for being unable to save her family when they needed her. Ash's Aura Purge helps her surpass much of it, but she doesn't fully come to terms with it until part 53 of Hoenn. And with that, she evolves.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: Needs to recite a short aria in order to summon her Reality Marble. She can even do it while still in her [=PokéBall=] if she wants to access it immediately in battle.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]].
Enemy Teams]]''
** She's also clearly based on the killed Marowak moment of ''Red and Blue''.
* FieldOfBlades: Her Reality Marble manifests as a field of bones. [[spoiler:It turns into a normal grass field after her "therapy session" with Ash]].
* {{Nerf}}: After the events of ''Mewtwo Returns'', her Reality Marble does this. It basically becomes less powerful and harder to access, but more flexible and easier to alter.
* OriginalCharacter: She wasn't there with the Rocket Trio in the original timeline.
* PeoplePuppets: If she understands someone's skeleton well enough, she can manipulate his/her skeleton like one of her bone weapons. So far she's used it with Arbok.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: Can manifest bones out of her Reality Marble.
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:One of the reasons why it took her so long to let go of her guilt is because, while she ''can and wants to'' get over it, she ''refuses'' to do so because she fears she'd forget her dead family if she did.]]
* YouShouldHaveDiedInstead: Downplayed. She doesn't actually think this, but she's quite angry that Ash got resurrected (first movie) while her family stayed dead.

!!Weepinbell/Victreebel
-----
* OutOfFocus: Appeared with Weezing more often in the Kanto-Johto sagas, but has appeared less due to the additions to the team both from the original timeline and the new timeline.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often seen with Weezing.

!!Wobbuffet
-----
* HurricaneOfPuns: Now that we can understand him, there's no escape from his punny onslaught...
* PungeonMaster: Much to everyone's dismay.

!![[spoiler:Moltres]]
-----
* AccidentalKidnapping: Accidentally captured herself in one of James's Pokéballs while sneaking around their camp.
* StalkerWithACrush: After she watched James [[spoiler:in his Moltres costume]] help thwart a group of Pokémon Pinchers who were looking to capture her, she fell in love and started following him around.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Meowth is teaching her to speak to humans, but she's not very coherent yet.

!!Carnivine
-----
* EarlyBirdCameo: Joins the team a lot earlier than in canon.

!!Seviper
-----
* BewareMyStingerTail: And it has a lot of different kinds of stings: Dragon Tail, Aqua Tail, Poison Tail, Iron Tail...
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Was this for Arbok in canon, but is {{Lampshaded}} when he rejoins the [=TRio=] to find that Arbok was never released. The two of them have a bit of a stand-off before becoming good friends.

!!Cacnea/Cacturne
-----
* CuddleBug: As in canon. Her increased size doesn't make things easier for poor James, though.

!!Dustox
* CommutingOnABus: Borrowed one of Professor Oak's transceivers so she could rejoin the Rocket cell if needed after reuniting with her old mate.

!![[spoiler: Audino]]
The Pokémon Giovanni gave them to assist with the team's injuries. He's actually trained by Jessie's old Chansey friend.
-----
* BerserkButton: Gets rather annoyed if someone tries to over-spice his cooking.
--> "Don't add that much salt, you'll ruin it!"
* TheMedic: His new role in
''[[Characters/AshesOfThePastTeamRocket Team Rocket's cell.
Rocket]]''
* OriginalCharacter: Didn't exist in canon.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Ash gives the Rocket Trio the Audinite he found, and Giovanni lets them use a Key Stone from TR's armory.]]
* SupremeChef: He's really, really good at making food. That being said, it's not advised to [[BerserkButton over-spice his cooking]].
* TeamChef: His other new role in Team Rocket's cell. [[SupremeChef And he's very good at it.]]
* TeamMom: Named as such in-universe.

!![[spoiler: Cosplay Pikachu]]
A reward to Jessie from Wallace after she impressed him with her comedic appeal.
-----
* {{Cosplay}}: [[spoiler:She has a lot of costumes to say the least]].
** ClothesMakeTheSuperman: [[spoiler:And just like in the games, wearing a costume gives her an associated new move that she normally cannot learn - that immediately disappears once it's taken off.]]
* GenkiGirl: She's rather energetic.
* {{Irony}}: After years and years of hunting, over six hundred attempts to ambush Ash, thousands of schemes, time travel, and the collection of a [[spoiler:Legendary Pokémon]], Team Rocket... [[spoiler:has a Pikachu. And they didn't even have to steal her or catch her or whatever -- she was a gift from Wallace]].

!!Chimecho
-----
* TheDitz: So much so, that even when its PokemonSpeak is translated, it's ''still'' saying its own name.
* LiteralMinded: Overhears a comment about Meowth having a "big mouth", and thus starts measuring the mouths of the other Team Rocket Pokemon for comparison.
* PokemonSpeak: It talks like this even when translated.

!!Team Rocket

[[folder:Tropes that apply to the organization as a whole]]
* EvilVersusOblivion: While Team Rocket still seeks control by all means in this timeline, it ''DOES NOT'' dabble in methods that result in massive collateral damage, societal collapse, or the universe itself being screwed up, and the reason is that you can't rule or make a profit in a destroyed world. As such, Giovanni would send his Rocket Executives (namely the Rocket Trio) to disaster areas not only to [[VillainWithGoodPublicity gather good PR]] but to eliminate threats to his ultimate plans, which of course results in said Executives aiding Ash and Co.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: All Rocket agents are under direct orders to avoid [[TheDreaded Ash]] even if it'll cost a mission. Jessie and James even make it a point by giving lectures and classes on how to deal with situations that involve Ash. Their advice: ''stay away from him''.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Unlike the original timeline, Giovanni plans to make his organization so beloved and ingratiated with the populace that they'll happily allow them the influence over them he seeks.
* RightHandVersusLeftHand: Giovanni outright states that some Rocket cell plots will come into conflict with each other, but he says that the more short-term plots will have to be sacrificed for the team as a whole.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: What Giovanni wants his organization to become as a whole, so the entire populace won't question them if they decide to take over. A lot of the Rocket Trio's missions are basically PR work intended to make Team Rocket look good.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Giovanni]]
The boss of the criminal Team Rocket organization and the Rocket Trio's (Jessie, James, and Meowth) direct superior.
-----
* AdaptationalHeroism: In a sense. Giovanni is still a ruthless, power-hungry crime boss with designs on controlling the world, but here it's emphasized that he understands there are different ''kinds'' of control - and he's especially interested in controlling the world through [[HundredPercentAdorationRating making himself and his organization so beloved and ingratiated with the populace that they'll happily allow him the influence over them he seeks.]] As a result, he focuses on keeping the Rockets' criminal side as secret as possible while devoting a lot of energy into world-saving and seemingly altruistic matters. The different ways incidents like Mewtwo's birth unfold further convince him that large-scale megalomaniacal efforts aren't worth the hassle, leaving him much less interested in them.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: If Jessie and James catching a Relicanth for his mother in any indication, Giovanni seems close to said mother, despite his criminal activities.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: What angered Giovanni concerning Vicious' little time travel plot to usurp him as boss of Team Rocket in the ''Voice of the Forest'' arc was not the attempted coup itself; ''it was the possibility that he might've not met his beloved Persian''. Say what you want about Giovanni, but there is no doubt that he is intensely devoted to his partner.
** And unlike Giovanni from the original timeline, this Giovanni [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas loves his mother]] despite his partaking in criminal activities.
* GeoEffects: Rather apropos, his battle specialty is terrain control. His Pokémon are very experienced in controlling the battlefield or making their own terrain and modifying it to their advantage.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He quickly realizes that Ash is way out of his league, so he makes it a point for all Rocket agents to avoid the kid whenever possible. He'll even accept mission failure if the reason involves Ash.
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: [[spoiler:After Vicious (the Iron-Masked Marauder) is captured and thrown in prison, Giovanni makes sure he dies of "natural causes" - namely, a stroke via his Persian's [[PsychicSurgery Shadow Claw]]]].
* PetTheDog: His treatment of the Rocket Trio (at least in this timeline) has shades of this.
* PragmaticVillainy: The reason why the department the trio is in exists, as you can't rule and/or extort the world ''if there is no world''. WordOfGod was that Operation Tempest in the original timeline was a desperation move, as he didn't see enough heroes to deal with the recent disasters. In this timeline, knowledge of Ash and Wes means he won't even think about it.
** [[spoiler:He immediately punishes Annie and Oakley by subjecting them to {{Yubitsume}}, demoting them to grunt work, and banning them from the use of Pokémon after the events of the ''Heroes'' movie. Their little scheme, which was heavily implied to be unauthorized judging by the language Giovanni used in his conversation with them, nearly undid all the PR work the trio have been doing since the time travel -- he only managed to salvage the damage by sending the trio to be visibly seen in stopping the crisis]].
** Also, his opinion on attempts to reshape reality (via legendary Pokémon or otherwise) is incredibly low.
-->'''Giovanni''': Useful, I'll admit, but far too flashy -- and dangerous to acquire. And Team Rocket does not like risk. Agents risk, the Team endures.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly enough, yes. He's harsh but he'll tolerate failure if there is a legitimately good reason for it. He let Cassidy and Butch's ditching an operation slide because it would've pitted them up against Ash, someone he ''knows'' was completely out of their league.
* RightHandCat: His Persian. His starter, most loyal companion, and someone he'd kill for.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: He demands that James turn over his Arcanine, Growlie, because it is a rare and powerful Pokémon. When James refuses, he reveals that it was a test and promptly ''promotes'' the trio.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: He has a Kangaskhan and the associated Kangaskhanite.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: Tends to give off this vibe at times -- ironically, some of the only ones he ''doesn't'' regard as idiots (to some degree) are the main trio, who he sees as [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric, but nonetheless extremely competent]].
* {{Yakuza}}: Par the course. [[spoiler:His punishment for Annie and Oakley includes complete {{Yubitsume}} on top of demotion and a Pokémon ban]].
* YouHaveFailedMe: Most of the movie villains that were Rocket-affiliated are revealed to be rogues or overenthusiastic agents who ultimately screwed up his master plans. In such situations, he tends to take care of them himself. It's rarely pretty.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vicious/The Iron-Masked Marauder]]
A member of Team Rocket and the BigBad of the ''[[Anime/Pokemon4Ever Voice of the Forest]]'' arc.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: A villainous example. He took advantage of Giovanni sending a squad of Rockets after him early to 'acquire' some of their Pokémon via Dark Ball. [[spoiler:And then he manages to get ''[[OhCrap Pikachu]]'' in one...]]
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: What his Dark Balls do to Pokémon; they forcibly turn them into Shadow Pokémon. They can even capture registered Pokémon and [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turn them against their trainers]].
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Ultimately the person who does him in is Giovanni, the same man he tried to overthrow, who has his Persian "[[PsychicSurgery fix things]]" so Vicious will, ahem, [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident die of natural causes]]]].
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: [[spoiler:He dies in prison from a stroke, which was engineered by Giovanni and done by his Persian's [[PsychicSurgery Shadow Claw]]]].
* MeaningfulName: A ''vicious'' rogue Team Rocket agent who treats his own Pokémon like crap [[spoiler:and is willing to use them like disposable tools in his bid to usurp Giovanni as head of Team Rocket]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler: His Croconaw starter sometime in his journey. Which gives you an idea of how much of a bastard this guy was.]]
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:All of the shenanigans he was doing in his arc was an attempt to usurp Giovanni as head of Team Rocket]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Annie and Oakley]]
A duo of Team Rocket agents who both make up the BigBad of the ''Heroes'' arc.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the original movie, they had an Espeon and an Ariados. This time, both of them come loaded with full teams of 6. Not that it helps them in the end.
* EpicFail: Oakley's attempts to [[spoiler: Mega Evolve her Beedrill]].
* {{Yubitsume}}: [[spoiler:In addition to demoting them to grunts and banning them from using Pokémon, Giovanni subjects Annie and Oakley to this trope when their plans (which going by Giovanni's wording were heavily implied to be unauthorized) nearly led to the undoing of all the Rocket Trio's PR activities since the time travel]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Butch and Cassidy]]
-----
* ButtMonkey: In the Kanto chapters, they took the place of the [=TRio=] as the Rockets who would tried to interfere with the heroes only to get horribly humiliated by them in some way (usually unwittingly, and due to both Ash and Co. ''and'' the [=TRio=]). Even when they get stronger Pokémon to face off against Ash during the Lake of Rage incident, they are still soundly beaten, much to their shock.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Their response to seeing (and recognizing) Ash showing up to one of their scams is to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere immediately skedaddle out of the area]]. Giovanni actually praises them for it, given how Ash has proven himself to be ''quite'' the threat.
* OutOfFocus: Post-Johto, they don't show up as much, reflecting how they've practically disappeared from the anime since the end of Johto.
* TheResenter: It's subtle, especially since they don't appear very often, but it seems and Butch and Cassidy are slightly resentful of how the [=TRio=] are executives (on the lowest rung, but still), while they're still (technically) only high-level grunts. They have access to strong Pokémon and control over many low-level operations, but they don't have the freedom and trust Jessie, James, and co. all enjoy.
[[/folder]]

!!Meanwhile in Pallet Town

[[folder:Professor Samuel Oak]]
Ash's main regional professor, who is no stranger to TimeTravel. His memories are also restored, and he aids Ash through his research and caring for his other Pokémon on his ranch.
-----
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Besides researching, he looks after the Pokémon living in his ranch, but sometimes he becomes the butt of their hijinks. ''Especially'' if said Pokémon belong to Ash.
* ButtMonkey: Professor Oak may be a world-renowned Pokémon professor, but that doesn't stop him from being the butt of many a Pokémon's hijinks, especially when they're Ash's.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: The first thing he does when Ash tells him of Celebi and time travel is to grab his hip flask.
* MayflyDecemberFriendship: Turns out this is the reason his Charizard decided to retire to the Charicific Valley - they had lived through the death of Oak's old Arcanine, and knowing how long Charizards live, he didn't want to live through Oak's death as well. It takes a talk with Ash's own Charizard to encourage him to visit the ranch once more.
** His Dragonite has it worse though, since they live even ''longer''.
* QuickNip: Reaches for his hip flask when Ash explains the plot.
* RetiredBadass: He's a former Pokémon League Champion. As Ash idly notes to the bug-using samurai in the Viridian Forest, he'd like to believe that he's the strongest trainer from Pallet Town, but since Professor Oak lives there...
** In a later chapter, Butch and Cassidy have to dissuade a group of Rocket grunts from attacking Oak's Ranch, saying it's one of the hardest targets in the country, and say that Oak lives there as the first reason. The others being Gary and Ash have their Pokémon there (and Molly visits often, in company of [[spoiler:the shiny Beasts]]) - then Ho-oh flies over the place.
* SapientHouse[=/=]SmartHouse: Thanks to Oak's Porygon Damos connecting with the ranch's computer system, the Oak Ranch itself can be considered as such. Translated Poké-speech even appears on screens in the building!
* SoProudOfYou: To Gary, for managing to get his research on the cover of ''Pokémon'' journal at an incredibly young age (even with the time travel).
* StableTimeLoop: It's revealed at the beginning of the story that Professor Oak giving Pikachu to Ash as a starter was planned, because during the ''Voice of the Forest'' arc, he had met Ash and Pikachu as a child when he time-traveled with Celebi. Despite Pikachu being disobedient when he and Ash met the first time around, Professor Oak gave him to Ash because he knew from his first encounter with them that they would eventually get along.

[[folder:Delia Ketchum]]
Ash's mother, who dotes on her son and constantly worries for his safety. This worry only grows tenfold after her memories are restored and she learns about all of her son's world-saving adventures.
-----
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Every time Ash finishes a League, Delia commissions a custom badge for her son that commemorates it. So far she's given out:
** An indigo flower for the Indigo League.
** An orange blossom for the Orange League.
** A silver crescent moon for the Silver Conference.
** A comet for [[spoiler: the Delta Episode]].
** A pyramid for the Battle Frontier.
* CrazyPrepared: Has packed a few esoteric items into Ash's BagOfHolding, including a fireproof outfit and a ''dress''. The latter is due to the [[{{Crossdresser}} Ashley]] incident that Brock once told her about.
* [[NoBadassToHisValet No Champion To His Mother]]: As far as Ash is concerned. It doesn't matter how many Leagues he wins or how many Legendaries he has, if he doesn't come home to visit his mother every once in a while, she ''will'' track him down and she ''will'' let him have it.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Understandably decides not to got to Greenfield for obvious reasons. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom However, this caused the Unown to go off the script, with massive consequences for everyone]].
** And when she sees via TV the events, she's painfully aware of it...

* CameraFiend: Natch.
* {{Sidekick}}: Meets a Sneasel that decides to act as his photography assistant.
* TheWorldIsJustAwesome: He gets the opportunity to take pictures of some ''breathtaking'' scenes, including migrating Pokémon photos from a microlight, and [[spoiler: even the courting and ''birth'' of
''[[Characters/AshesOfThePastLegendaryPokemon Legendary Pokémon]].
* UnfazedEveryman: Is ''trying'' to be this with regards to Ash's inexplicable connection to Legendaries, but isn't quite there yet.

[[folder:Philena Ivy]]
The Professor of the Orange Islands.
-----
* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler:To Brock from the original timeline. A FreakLabAccident involving the Unown sent her to a pocket dimension where she remained trapped, a fate that Brock was unable to save her from. This was the reason why Brock had [[MyGreatestFailure extreme negative reactions]] to hearing Ivy's name. But thanks to Ash's TimeTravel, Brock averts this by using his foreknowledge to save Ivy]].
* NoodleIncident: She somehow got her lab CoveredInMud during an experiment to test Diglett's sensitivity to ultrasonics.
* OfficialCouple: With Brock [[spoiler:after he saved her from a group of Unown she was studying]].
* CuteKitten: Her new Shinx, [[spoiler: a gift from Brock's mum]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ritchie Getem]]
A trainer Ash met in the Kanto League with an appearance and Pokémon very similar to Ash's own, by destiny rather than coincidence.
-----
* HeroOfAnotherStory[=/=]TheChosenOne: Was destiny-entangled with Ash, meaning that he was fated to catch similar Pokémon and go on just as many world-changing adventures as Ash himself. This is now broken though, and the differences between the two are becoming more prominent (though he still gets into just as many adventures).
* MirrorBoss: His and Ash's battle at the Indigo League is reminiscent of this; WordOfGod says he was going for a "distorted mirror match", where the two use Pokémon that are similar but different.
** His Ralts, Cid, helps him with his psychic potential, just like Ash and Riolu.
** His Spearow, Nagi, is agile and supersonic in bursts, unlike Pidgeot who is just plain fast.
** His Eevee, a Pokémon with a great deal of adaptability, just like Dexter. Both are also the OddNameOut of their teams, in that Eevee doesn't have a nickname but Dexter does.
* IdenticalStranger: To Ash, even sharing similar {{Punny Name}}s. Many people have mistaken him for Ash on several occasions.
* PsychicPowers: Unlocked his psychic potential thanks to his Ralts (now Gallade), just as Ash was helped with his Aura by Riolu, and Sparky has learned some Psychic tricks as well.
* ShapingYourAttacks: His now-Raichu Sparky can use psychic shaping on his electricity to form [[WhipItGood electro-whips]] and other electric weapons.
* SuperMode: [[spoiler: By the Ever Grande Conference, his now-Gallade Cid has Galladite and can Mega Evolve with it.]]
* TheNicknamer: Almost all his Pokémon have one.
* TimeTravel: Has had more than a few run-ins with Celebi. As such, [[SeenItAll he's unfazed when Ash tells him about his mission from the future.]]
* WeirdnessMagnet: Just like Ash.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Casey Nanako]]
A beginner trainer from New Bark that Ash befriended. Her team consists mostly of yellow-and-black Pokémon as a reference to the Electabuzz baseball team.
-----
* AdaptationalBadass: She successfully uses the FEAR strategy to defeat Ash's ''Charizard'', and later during the Silver Conference, puts up a good fight against Ash.
** [[spoiler: Later chapters show that she's attracted the attention of a Zapdos]].
* AttackPatternAlpha: Rarely calls attacks. Instead, she uses baseball references to call tactical plans.
* CrazyPrepared: Has trained her Pokemon specifically on how to fight Ash's Charizard.
* DavidVsGoliath: Her Pokémon are trained to fight Pokémon way more powerful than them, including specifically Ash's Charizard.
* EngineeredHeroics: [[spoiler: The Zapdos following her does this to impress her]].
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:As of Chapter 179, she's acquired a Key Stone to work with the Beedrillite that Ash gave her.]]
* TranslatorBuddy: [[spoiler: Riolu]] serves as one.
* WeakButSkilled: Basically her thing. Her Pokémon don't have anything like the raw power of Ash's team, but they are very very good at rendering raw power worthless. Notably, her Meganium disables Charizard with a long-range vine grapple, keeping him from taking off, moving quickly, or using breath attacks via joint locks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Molly Hale and her Eevee]]
Childhood friend of the Ketchums, Molly used the power of the Unown to call from copies of Entei, Scuicune, and Raikou to keep her company, alongside Pokémon copies of her own to battle with. After the events at Greenfield, the three beasts and her Eevee were turned into real Pokémon, but Shiny. As of now, she is travelling through Sinnoh with Gary as her mentor.
-----
* AchievementsInIgnorance: The reason her Eevee can switch forms at the drop of a hat is that Molly misunderstood how Eevee's branching evolution worked in the first place.
* BadassAdorable: Molly displays potential in becoming a successful Pokémon trainer during her battles with Misty and Brock, and manages to complete her trainer license by the end of the Hoenn arc.
* BecomeARealBoy: Eevee turns into a real (shiny) Eevee thanks to a little help from Mewtwo.
* {{Expy}}: Eevee shares the same shapeshifting powers as [[Manga/PokemonSpecial Vee]].
* GrewBeyondTheirProgramming: Eevee started out more like the other Pokemon the Unown created for Molly to battle with, but a number of factors led to her becoming more similar to the Unown spawned Beasts.
* MultiformBalance: Eevee can turn into any of her evolutions at any time. Even Sylveon, which until the CosmicRetcon following 4Ever, didn't even have an official type. [[spoiler:In fact, Sylveon is the ''reason'' why the CosmicRetcon created the Fairy type in the first place, as due to a TimeCrash, she was present at the creation of the world and Arceus decided to do a SureLetsGoWithThat]].
* {{Omniglot}}: As a result of her encounter with the Unown, Molly can speak Pokémon like Ash and co. can, except she hasn't had any aura training. Seeing as the incident that caused this was potentially life-scarring, her parents are content that ''this'' was the only side effect that directly affected her.

* BigGood: For Kanto and Johto.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: Was the one who nominated [[spoiler: Misty for the Elite Four]].

* HeroicBSOD: Comedic version, where he is outright shocked to learn that [[spoiler:Molly Hale, ''an eight year old girl'', is responsible for the creation of the Fairy-type, the absolute bane of a dragon tamer such as Lance]].
* PassingTheTorch: A variation - he was both a member of the Elite Four and its Grand Champion, but passed his Elite Four position to Karen after the Silver Conference, becoming Grand Champion ''only''.

* SuperMode: [[spoiler:Borrowed Max's Key Stone and the Lopunnite that Gary found to Mega Evolve his Lopunny.]]

[[folder:Drew]]
May's contest rival, who was reminded of the old timeline by Ash.
-----

* KidFromTheFuture: After being reminded, he caught an Eevee, which evolved into a Leafeon, which had an egg [[spoiler: that turned out to be May's Glaceon.]]
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: His Butterfree [[spoiler:is one of Ash's Butterfree's children.]]

-----

[[folder:Paul]]
A very intense trainer that Ash first met in Sinnoh.
-----
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Even if he doesn't call them that directly, he obviously disdains those who have taken Ash's offer of reminding as having taken the easy way out.
* DiscardAndDraw: Ash convinves a ChallengeSeeker Cranidos to join his team in place of Chimchar/Infernape.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Well, sort of. His reaction to finding out he sent out Chimchar against Garchomp despite the type disadvantage is wondering what possessed him to do that in the previous timeline.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: The case of the ChallengeSeeker Cranidos that Ash finds for him in exchange for Chimchar.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even if he respects Ash for all his accomplishments, that doesn't change the fact that he's a git.

* TheComicallySerious: His recent scenes of being a Tag Battle partner with ''Mawile'' and battling against the MotorMouth Barry place him in this role.

The current Grand Champion of the Sinnoh League. Ash meets her during his Sinnoh journey, and finds out she can be reminded of the old timeline.

[[spoiler: See Ash's Pokémon]]

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Very much so.
* BadassAdorable: Held his/her own against ''Mewtwo''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Is normally a complete goofball with no attention span. When he/she actually takes things seriously, Mewtwo gets a workout.

* BlackSheep: Most Legendary Bird Trios work with their respective Lugia. These three try to kill him on occasion.
** Later chapters reveal that their behavior has made them rather infamous among other groups of Legendary Birds.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: At one point it is suggested that part of the reason for their behavior is the fact that they're mostly alone on their islands.
* ItsAllAboutMe: All three want to take over the islands, regardless of the catastrophe that would result, or if they have bigger problems.

* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Were created to fill the roles of a Nuclear Family, as opposed to being resurrected as siblings like most Beast Trios.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Planned to visit Molly when she was away, but didn't talk about it with each other, so they all visited at once.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Entei vanishes along with the Unown in canon. Raikou and Suicine never existed there.
* UnskilledButStrong: Are every bit as powerful (if not more) as the original Beast Trio, but have no combat experience. This lets the originals mop the floor with them.
* WalkingSpoiler: Even mentioning that this Raikou and Suicine EXIST spoils the climax of the Third Movie Arc.

Mesprit first appeared during the Delta Episode, when it was awakened by Dawn and Barry, and it and its two companions got Kyogre to create a rainstorm that deflected the heat pulse from meteor debris hitting the atmosphere. It has taken an interest in Dawn.

They start making more frequent appearances in Sinnoh, where it's revealed that they are responsible for [[PeggySue Ash]] being able to remind people and Pokémon of the previous timeline.

-----
* BigGood: Of the entire Pokémon universe. He did create it after all...
