    Max knew who he was; so for people who follow that sort of thing, they might know who he is. I wouldn't call him "famous" though.

    Knowing there might be hundreds of regions, and he participated in only 5 Leagues (and never won any) , then i dunno.

    Not very.

    No one cares about a guy with Ash's record. He doesn't even have one high profile league win.

    well i don't think Ash is very famous.
    He (like the others said) never really won a league so he's not like
    some celebrity league winner.

    People into competitive Pokemon probably know him, but most people don't.

    It seems like competitive Pokemon Training is a very niche thing in the Pokemon World.

    He has saved the world more than anyone. he has met and will meet all legendaries. but no one cares about it. he is popular with the legendaries than the people. There could be some ash fans like that nurse joy though.

    Well, he's been involved in a lot of events that could cause destruction on a global scale. You'd think the media would be all over them.

    Famous enough not to be recognized in Unova.

    I'd say he's decently famous around the regions he's travelled. I'd like for Ash to meet someone who has heard about before and battles him

    People would probably recognise him from the league battles. Didn't max see him on TV when battling in the johto league? So that would suggest people knew him. also the hundreds/thousands of people in the stadium would also know his name and that goes for every competition. (pokeringer, tour de alto mare, etc.)

    I'll just answer what everyone else is answering. He isn't famous because hardly anyone recognizes him in the show.

    I thought you were talking about how famous Ash is for the Pokémon franchise, and I was going to say, "Not as much as Pikachu, but pretty famous."

    He's been televised each time he entered the League I'm sure, so some big-shot who always watches the Leagues possibly knows his face and tends to be interested in his battling skills even if he keeps freakin' losing. He personally got to know some famous figures like Bruno and Lance, so I'm sure they would be able to give referrals if they were ever asked about him. Maybe.

    Now I wouldn't say he's known worldwide (even then, he's just a thought and then pfft, he's gone), but in his hometown, I'd say he's looked to as a positive icon for Pallet Town, much like Professor Oak is.

    Wasn't there a Battle Frontier episode where he gets mobbed by some fans and they actually point/recgonize his achievements? Just askin' D8 Plus Max seemed to know him well enough Even if he just made fun of the fact he lost in the 2nd round so I'd say some people know him, not a lot. -shrugs-

    I would say that he's not that famous. Consider the hundred or so trainers that come through the individual leagues every single year...

    In the pokemon World: Well, he has quite of fame on every region for all the people that he meets and helps. but still he isn't famous. In Real World, well he is the protagonist of the anime and most of the protagonists are famous, but I don't know if they like him or not.

    In the sense of the pokemon world, you have people such as paul who have traveled to 2 or more regions, won 8 badges, and competed in that region's pokemon league. With that in mind, Ash wouldn't really be that famous at all.

    Ash isn't famous at all.
    Ash is like LAME compared to the Trainers in the Video Games. :P

    To be honest, I'd don't think the movies are to be considered canon, otherwise Ash would be recognized instantly...

    How famous Ash is? Virtually unknown, I'd say.

    Considering how many people enter every League championship, collecting eight badges isn't much of a big deal in the anime. And judging by this same logic, there are so many people every time there's a League tournament that most people probably forget all about most of them as soon as the championship is over, remembering just the winner, maybe the runner-up. Kinda like it happens in the real world with contest shows.

    In the Pokemon World Ash is about as famous as any other would be trainer. He may get all 8 badges and enter into the league in pretty much every region he's been in, but he never wins any of them. I'm sure he's pretty famous in his home town of Pallet, not as famous as Prof. Oak mind you. Now I haven't watched any of the anime since Kanto(Just some episodes from Sinnoh but that's it really) so I don't have full knowledge on what's happened. If Ash actually won a League or two then he might have some fame, then he might get recognized for it but it would be like a thought, you remember it and then *pop* it's gone.

    He isnt famous at all, although winning the Orange League might have helped.
