Focus: Ash’s Other Outfits

ita icon_satoshipedia

Many pokéfan are led to believe that Ash will not ever change clothes or even worse, that he did not wash himself. Well, in the anime it’s also made clear this thing:

Delia taught Ash to do the laundry before he left, in fact he has got with him the pink gloves useful for this purpose. Also, Ash has repeatedly claimed to have extra T-shirts (that have been seen also in the same animated series), some identical to each other, other slightly different.


Ash has also stated that he takes a shower or bath every day (or at least every time he comes to a Pokémon Center). If he is stuck into a forest or places like these for days, obviously, he has no chance of having a decent wash, but, however, every day he changes his underwear and socks.

Below, here are the different types of Ash’s outfits depending on the situations:

 Coats for cold weather

During his travels, Ash had to go through many different places and in different seasons of the year, so, sometimes he had to go through perennially ice-cold ,or snow covered areas in winter. In these cases he had to wear coats.

For training and competitions

Sometimes Ash had the need to wear some costumes and dresses for special trainings or to participate in specific competitions:

To sleep

Ash hates wearing pajamas. This is characteristic of him since he was a child, when his mother was always angry because he tended to go sleeping without wearing it. In the first series he was wearing pajamas several times, when he was at home or at least in presence of his mother. Instead, during the journey, he always slept with his clothes, removing the jacket and staying in t-shirt and pants (mainly for practical reasons, since it often found himself camping).

Since the half of the Diamond & Pearl series, Ash decided to wear a pair of shorts he bought especially for warm nights.

Currently, in the Kalos region, He decided to use even a tank top, in addition to shorts.
However, as seen at the beginning of article, he also brings different types of t-shirts, with whom he sleeps in cooler nights.



In the course of the series Ash has been shown to possess many types of swimwear:

The crazy imitator!

Ash has always been the protagonist of several funny gags, in which he has found himself, against his will, to disguise himself as a Pokémon, food … and even girls!

Ash the prankster

As we know, Ash is a great prankster, so occasionally he likes to put on masks or absurd disguises to play jokes on his friends… sometimes with Brock as an accomplice!
