Ash Ketchum might not be very successful as a Pokemon Trainer but he definitely has some muscle power.


We have seen the physical strength of the everlasting ten-year-old kid already in the Pokemon anime series many times already. Today, we have decided to collect a few images from various sources to prove that Ash has some serious muscle power.

We start off the image where he is seen holding a Fletchinder with a single arm. A Fletchinder actually weighs around 16 kilograms (or 35 pounds), which is not a very easy weight to lift with a single arm.

Another aspiring trainer, Bonnie, who couldn’t be more than 8 years old, also has impressive strength for her age. She can be seen holding Dedenne, who weighs 2.2 kilograms (4.9 pounds), and Core Zygarde, whose weight is not known.
