quote bbb7002004while that is true,the canon name for the pokemon trainer of the 1st gen is red(and he is also the only main character who has his canon name given in the games themselves).But Ash has long been a name choice for Red. They are one in the same, with some slight tweaks to character design.
Either way it doesn't really matter since Smash has no set in stone rules and Nintendo/Sakurai can put whatever they want in the game.
quote bbb7002004even though smash draws a lot from the anime(even the pokespeak does barely appear in the games),the fact remains that ash is an anime character and doesn't appear in any game.Yellow version is a response to the show, so Ash is the character avatar. Smash also uses the voice tracks from the show for pokemon instead of their game calls.
