Ash's last name is Ketchum, and is said like catch 'em (but it always reminded me of ketchup).
While they are trainers and out to collect all the pokemon with their pokeballs, Ash has a special connection and friendship with one of his, Pikachu (a thunder mouse).
In Japanese, pika is the sound an electric spark makes and chu is the sound that a mouse makes.
During their adventures, they often face Team Rocket (Jessie, James and their pokemon friend, Meowth) who try to steal their pokemon or cause other trouble for our heroes.
Do you know what Team Rocket's saying is? "Team Rocket's blasting off again."
Meowth is a pokemon who says more than just his name, but not all pokemon say their name, like Charizard (the first evolution of a Charmeleon) just makes noises.
If you want to know the name of all the pokemon, there are songs called poke raps. The first one had 150 pokemon in it, and there is one (that is almost 10 minutes long) that has over 700 pokemon in it.
