ash ketchum as a doting father, but for his pokemon
he takes out his wallet and starts showing complete strangers individual photographs of every single one of his pokemon. he’s named all of the tauros. it takes him an hour to get through half of the pictures. he’s missed his bus stop
The first picture is from my Spanish Fanfic “La Reina y el Iventor”, the sequel of my other Spanish Fanfic “I choose you forever” in which Ash and Misty are formally a couple and they are pretty ashamed because of their friends, who are celebrating their new relationship.
The second one. Please let me introduce to you my Fan Babie “Alyson Ketchum”. At first I wanted to call her Ashley, so that her Japanese Name could be “Satoko”, but I thought about it and get to the conclusion that everyone had used that name already and I wanted one not that recicled, so I choose this one.
I’ll let you know a little bit about her: PROFILE Name: Alyson Ketchum Waterflower Japanese Name: Satsuki Age: 1-2 years old Eyes: Aquamarine (Misty’s eyes) Hair: Black (with green tones, like Ash) Family: - Ash Ketchum (Father) - Misty Waterflower/Ketchum (Mother) - Aron Ketchum (Deceased Older Brother) - Delia Ketchum (Grandmother) - Mr. Ketchum (Grandfather - Whereabouts Unknown) - Daisy, Violet and Lily Waterflower (Aunties) - Mr. & Ms. Waterflower (Granparents - Deceased)
Personality: Alyson is a happy child and too hyper for her young age. She’s too small to have a defined personality such as her parents, but her great smile is one of her greatest features. She adores her father, getting to the point of crying if he leaves her side while she’s awake. Her mother can calm her obviously, but she just simply loves Ash a lot.
Story: The little girl is the second daughter of Ash and Misty, born when the two adults were 24 years old respectively. She came to illuminate the lives of their parents after they had suffered the loss of Aron, his older brother.
From EP002 - Pokémon Emergency!, the only mention of Ash’s father there ever was in the anime.
In the dub the dialogue is a bit different:
Delia: “Where are you, Ash?” Ash: “The Pokémon Center in Viridian City.” Delia: “You’re already in Viridian City? It took your father four days to get there when he started pokémon training! Oh, he’ll be so proud! You’re the apple of his eyes!” Ash: “Yeah, a rotten apple.”
Headcanon, Ash inherented his kindness, generosity and selflessness from his mother, and the fact that hes never around and leaves his mother behind constantly without much of a second thought from his father.
