Information on the rapper

Ash Ketchum (Japanese: サトシ Satoshi) is the main character of the Pokémon anime series, as well as a number of manga and comics based on the anime. He is loosely based on Red from the first generation of Pokémon games. His Japanese name is derived from the series' creator, Satoshi Tajiri; his English name is taken from this as well, while his surname is based on the franchise's original motto, "Gotta catch 'em all!"

Born in Pallet Town in the Kanto region, Ash lived with his mother, Delia, until he was ten years old—the age of becoming a Pokémon Trainer. However, because he woke up late, his rival, Gary Oak, was ahead of him as Ash was left with nothing but a Pikachu from Professor Oak. Though Ash and Pikachu began at a rough start, their relationship grew overtime, and they soon became best friends. With Pikachu forever at his side, Ash has traveled across many different regions, including Kanto, the Orange Islands, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, the Decolore Islands, Kalos, and Alola in an upcoming season. Along his journey, he has caught numerous Pokémon and challenged Gyms for Gym Badges in hopes of being a Pokémon Master. Ash has also befriended and traveled with many people, including Misty, Brock, Tracey, May, Max, Dawn, Iris, Cilan, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie. His adventures frequently see him facing off against Jessie, James, and Meowth of the Team Rocket trio, who aim to steal other people's Pokémon, namely Ash's Pikachu.

Lyrics

[Note: Ash Ketchum is in blue, and Charizard and Pikachu are in regular text.]

Verse 1:

Darwin wants to battle? Doesn't seem like a fight,

But this should be fun! I've yet to catch the Ghost type!

Got the highest speed stat, drop raps lightning fast,

Open my pockets and go (Charizard!) on your ass!

'Cause I'm Ash! And that's A to the "shush"!

I don't care how many beetles and butterflies you squoosh!

Your earthworms can't beat these magical beasties!

Your shit-talking mouth is the origin of feces!

You got candy raps: Reese's Pieces!

In this ecosystem, I'm the dominant species!

When it's time to train, I turn to Pikachu, (Pika!)

But when I need a weak verse, I choose you!

Verse 2:

Yo, ummm, real quick?

This dude spent eight years studying barnacle dick! Kick it!

You think I'm impressed by your boat trip? Please!

You're the most annoying thing on a Beagle since fleas!

You're a glitchy old man best left out at sea!

Set sail and Galápago-suck on these!

Verse 3:

Man, if that's true, then nature is cruel

'Cause the only thing you're winning is your cousin's gene pool!

You lost three children while they were still small!

TB and scarlet fever; gotta catch 'em all!

Scrapped lyrics

Verse 1:

Darwin wants to battle? He's gonna Dar-lose

To the very best! Isn't that right, Pikachu?

I'm a Fire-type rapper; got a Pallet in my pack

With a natural-list of elements to kick your grass!

This aint no glitch; I'll be missing no hits!

You got theories getting split by critics in 8 bits!

A wild scientist appeared, and he's going ape shit,

So he gave his first cousin his trainer tip!

And it's not very effective when you travel the globe

To spend five years with seamen, studying homos!

Which Pokémon are you? My dex don't know,

But the rap on this track's one-hit K.O.!


Darwin wants to battle? Doesn't seem like a fair fight,

But this should be fun! I'm yet to catch a Ghost type!


I spit ice-cold rhymes, and your ass is grass!


Your attract is so ineffective you gave your cousin your trainer tip!

All your burns have been squelched by my flow!

There's no need for part two; it's a one-hit K.O.!


Spittin' ice-cold rhymes, and your ass is just grass!


But right now I need a weak verse; I choose you!

Verse 2:

You act like your novels have ever been Red!

Like Team Rocket, I'll have to put you on blast again

'Cause you said it: the measurement of worth is a friendship,

And my Pokédex has more entries than your friends list!

I'm a trainer, a battler, a capturer, a master!

The physical appearance of our fitness doesn't matter!

It's the bonds we share that build the strength we can bear,

And you have about as much as your head has hair!

So I don't need to evolve; my team is strong the way we are!

Every single diss you throw at me, I'm gonna catch 'em all!

Pika, use a sick bar as your finishing move!

Pik…a…ACHOO!

Verse 3:

Electric's super effective! You know we won't be losing

To a dude who watched a monkey poop and called it evolution!

Verse 4:

Your heart fainted! You can't revive it to attack us!

You could use a gym; this 'aint survival of the fattest!

Verse 5:

You forgot something in the mortal words of your journal:

The world of my journey and dreams is eternal!


My six balls are a lady's dream team!


Yo, ummm, just in case you didn't know,

This dude spent five years with seamen, studying homos!


You're bugging; it's the old man glitch disease!
