    I wish he were more famous, considering all of his accomplishments, but no, he seems to be just a regular character who HAPPENS to have many accomplishments.

    To be honest, I think Ash not gaining any celebrity status for saving the world makes him rather humble, you know? Outside of possibly the third movie where I believe he did get interviewed at the end of the movie (remember that reporter?), not once has he ever complained about not getting any reports done on what happened. That tells us more about his character than what the series has done in years. So in a way, I'm happy Ash isn't famously well-known for saving the world when chances are it only ever happened in various small locations, like Shamouti Island (despite calamities happening world-wide) and Rota.

    And of course, he's a kid. I don't think he wants such a high status attached to his name at the moment (except in his mother's eyes), and I don't think he ever will.

    Purely conjecture on my part, but I've always assumed that Pokemon League competition would be televised, as sports are here. Considering Ash usually finishes in the top 8 so I guess he'd be seen quite a bit. I seem to remember that guy Shingo from Wired for Battle knew who he was, or was able to find out on the computer easily enough. I think people who're interested in that sort of thing would know him, again similarly to sports.

    Ash isn't that famous but he is famous enough. Isn't he friends with Cynthia now? I think she will get his name out there maybe.
    You know your name better than I do. YAY!

    Yeah. I think the same thing.
    He's probably about as "famous" as the average Professional Football player. Only people who follow that stuff super closely know his name, and would recognize him.

    It just makes sense I guess... xD

    Kinda like sports in real life. Outside of names like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Jeff Gordon, Michael Phelps, Shaquille O'Neal within their respective sports, you have had hundreds of people come through and play, and not have any inkling of who the heck they are...


    Lost my Platinum, so that's not good. On the other hand, I have heartgold and my FC is:

    That's what I was thinking, are the movies even considered canon (you know like real)?

    I think they are confirmed cannon but Ash usually forgets about all his journeys so who knows.
