I love Pokémon and have been watching the anime/cartoon ever since I was a little child! Pokémon is still popular!
This fire type Pokémon is full of personality and not afraid to show it. Whenever he is happy, sad or emotional, Torkoal either cries very hard or releases a lot of black smoke. You can say that this Pokémon is always wearing his emotions on the sleeve. While this is great for comic relief in the anime, the main characters and other Pokémon are not happy to be around Torkoal when he releases his black smoke everywhere. Nobody likes to be covered in black smoke! On the other hand, Torkoal is very friendly to people and Pokémon alike. He also loves to appeal to his trainer by battling very hard to win against his opponents. This Pokémon is very funny, friendly and fun to be around.

Totodile is another comical Pokémon that is so fun to be with. This guy likes to dance a lot. Every time Totodile is released from the Poke Ball, he will surely start to dance to show his happiness. Most interestingly, Totodile is also fairly relaxed when called into important battles. He will show off his energy and happiness by dancing in the middle of a match. Although Totodile appears to be not very serious for Pokémon battles, he managed to defeat two powerful opponents with unconventional tactics. First, Totodile defeated Christopher's Kingdra by biting and force closed the opponent's mouth. Second, Totodile defeated Harrison's Sneasel by biting the opponent's hand and dancing with it. Other than unconventional battle tactics, can you also hear Totodile's adorable voice? It sounds like none other than the iconic Donald Duck. This Pokémon is definitely one of the funniest in Ash's collection with an unique voice to match! This water starter is also a very cute Pokémon.

Heracross is one of the strongest Pokémon that Ash owns. He has a very sweet personality but likes to drink from Bulbasaur's bulb again and again. This really annoys Bulbasaur but Heracross is still going to do it regardless of how Bulbasaur feels. Somehow it's very funny to see the good old Bulbasaur gets annoyed with this unique bug Pokémon. Maybe the nectar is just so sweet that a bug Pokémon like Heracross simply can't resist. When Heracross battled the Frontier Brain Spenser and his Venusaur, his eyes immediately lit up and went straight for Venusaur's nectar. Venusasur knocked it away with its vines. Maybe grass type Pokémon is not very happy to share its nectar with bugs?! This good hearted and funny Pokémon is always distracted by sweets in every situation. How adorable!

Ash caught Muk back in the Kanto region and immediately sent him to professor Oak's laboratory. Muk never got a lot of screen time because his move pool is limited. However, he makes it up with his big personality. By spending most of his time at professor Oak's place, he developed a deep bond with the professor. Actually, his love for humans extends beyond professor Oak and his trainer. He also loves enemies such as Jessie. It's hard to imagine that such a mean looking Pokémon is so loving and nice. Muk's appearance on the anime also provides comic relief. This poison Pokémon smoothers Ash whenever he gets a chance to see his trainer! However, Muk showed his strength the few times he battled for Ash. Remember he smothered the Bellsprout that defeated Pikachu in the Kanto league?
Gliscor is another Pokémon with lots of personality and funny to watch in the series. Before he evolved into Gliscor, Gligar used to be afraid of heights. This is really funny because he is a part flying type. Also, he cries a lot because he is afraid of getting hurt. His eyes also water when Ash scolds him for not using his moves properly. Sometimes, Ash is way too demanding when it comes to Pokémon training. When he gets scared, Gligar crash lands on Ash every time. After Gligar evolved into Gliscor, he became more capable in battles but kept his personality. Gliscor still puts his tongue out to show his playful side. Whenever this Pokémon gets screen time, Pokémon fans are very happy to see him.
You have to love this Pokémon. He caught a pseudo-legendary Pokémon for Ash! Ash's Melmetal (Meltan before evolution) immediately liked Rowlet when they first met. This little bird always falls asleep and wakes up during the most unexpected situations. Look at his shocked and funny reaction when he wakes up in the middle of a battle. This starter Pokémon has lots of potential after he evolves. However, Ash's Rowlet will never evolve because of him swallowing an Everstone much to Ash's horror. This is such a shame because he can become a much more powerful Pokémon by evolving into his final form. However, his personality and humor more than make up for his lack of power.
This is another playful Pokémon. Ash's Naganadel was very playful when it was still a Poipole. He started playing with Pikachu and took an immediate liking to Ash. Poipole expressed himself with his drawings before evolving. After he evolved into Naganadel, he gained a lot of power and helped Ash secure many wins. Naganadel is also very unique because he is an ultra beast and the only ultra beast caught by any character in Pokémon. Although Naganadel left Ash's team officially, he will return to Ash one day and help him secure more wins. This ultra beast has a quirky and funny personality that many Pokémon fans love to watch!
Ash's Dragonite is a complete opposite of Iris' Dragonite in terms of personality. Unlike Iris' Dragonite's serious and intense nature, Ash's Dragonite is a happy-go-lucky dragon that loves to hug everything. Remember the episode where Riolu was still an egg and Dragonite immediately went to hug it? He is so funny and loveable. He always has a friendly expression that makes everyone around him happy. But, don't be fooled by a goofy personality. Ash's Dragonite is extremely strong and defeated many tough opponents in battle!
Is Ash's Oshawott the Pokémon version of Brock? This little water starter is so funny and adorable. When he senses beautiful female Pokémon around, he immediately starts to like them. Remember the mythical Pokémon Meloetta (not female)? Both Oshawott and Dawn's Piplup were crazy in love with "her". The funniest part in the Pokémon's series is when Oshawott and Piplup fighting over Meloetta not knowing that Meloetta is a genderless Pokémon. How about Oshawott's confidence when entering a battle? However, he immediately loses that confidence when he finds out that he lost his scalchop. This little water Pokémon is definitely super funny to watch!

Forget gible and infernape how about goodra PEOPLES
Jeremy Gill from Louisiana on April 16, 2015:
I made a similar hub about the strongest non-legendary anime Pokémon, and we certainly agree that Ash has some impressive monsters! I really like his Snorlax, it took out so many Pokémon single-handedly in its debut episode. Anyway, nice article!

Yeah I agree with everyone else. Infernape definitely has to be on this list too. I would put it in the top 3. Charizard and Infernape would be top two in my opinion. I wished we got to see more of that powerful Pokémon!
