Also, Ash has shown the ability to use Bond Phenomenon, as showcased in the XY series with his Greninja. He also has huge endurance, as seen when he took powerful attacks from various Pokémon head-on and then recovering quite quickly. Letting Pikachu choose their reward for the completion, Ash received a Steelium Z. As a result, Ash and Kiawe distracted it long enough for the former to throw a Beast Ball at it, successfully capturing it. For instance, during Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl, he incorporated a twisting-spinning type maneuver in his Pokémon's offensive and defensive techniques, which eventually lead to him creating the original technique, Counter Shield. They accepted the offer and were provided with their own room to stay in.

In Pokémon Tretta, Ash and his Pokémon appear in multiple Tretta pucks as a cross-promotion with the anime's Pokémon the Series: XY. The honor of "best friend" is usually reserved for Pikachu, but Ash has come to see his closest human friends in the same light over time; using the term for Misty and Brock in Gotta Catch Ya Later! After their journey through Johto, Ash and Misty parted ways when she was forced to run the Cerulean Gym while her sisters went on an "around-the-world" cruise, which they had won as a prize in a beauty contest. He decided to take on the Battle Frontier and was surprised but happy to learn that Brock, May, and Max would join him on this adventure as well. In the finals of the Lumiose Conference, Ash and Alain started a back and forth battle that eventually came down to Alain's Mega Charizard X against Ash's Greninja in its Ash-Greninja form.

When Max was going to return to Hoenn while May traveled through Johto, Ash promised him that when he became a Pokémon Trainer, they would have a battle together. He was forcibly ejected from the tower when the computerized security system, later revealed to be the Clembot, found out that he didn't have any Kalos Badges. However, while Ash is passionate, a good battler, and has a lot of achievements under his belt, he loses most of the Pokémon Leagues he challenges. From that point onward, Ash journeyed through Hoenn with one old friend and two new friends, collecting Gym Badges in much the same fashion as before. In the beginning of the anime, Ash had a bit of an inferiority complex, as well as some form of personal pride, most likely stemming from his rivalry with Gary. During Kukui and Burnet's wedding reception in the aftermath of the incident, Ash and his friends were invited to join an Ultra Beast response task force, known as the Ultra Guardians, which they all agreed to. In fact, they trained together for Ash's battles and for May's contests. They are also good friends of Lillie and Ed. Later, in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu!

Although, Ash and Cilan friendship will remain no matter where their journeys take them. Ash, who was looking for the Poliwag, came to her rescue and wrapped a handkerchief around the wounded knee to brace it.
