Ambipom is an Ambipom (former Aipom) owned by Dawn, formerly by Ash Ketchum.


Ambipom as an Aipom

Ambipom is a playful Pokémon. As an Aipom, she behaved much more mischievous, often stealing Ash's hat or other forms of headwear and even other Pokémon's food just for attention. She was also quite attached to Ash, getting jealous of his attention to Pikachu, or even attacking Professor Oak.

When she was traded to Dawn, Aipom mellowed considerably, stopped stealing and became quicker to obey orders. While still loyal to Ash, she also became loyal to Dawn, showing a more mature side.

Ambipom has been shown to develop different interests over time. A well known example of this is contests. While not necessarily preferring them to battles, she has shown great interest. She first showed interest in contests when watching May and other coordinators compete. Her love for contests even persuaded Ash to participate in the Jubilife Contest. Later, Ambipom became interested in Pokémon Ping Pong, which she decided to pursue instead of contests.
