Pokémon come in all different sizes, ranging from the massive Alolan Exeggutor to the sweet little Togepi. Where most will look at a Pokémon based on its abilities in battle and the amazing designs, some of the tiny Pokémon get left behind.
Yet, across the over 1,000 episodes produced in the Pokémon series, Ash and his friends have experienced the amazing abilities many of these little Pokémon have, helping them through their adventures and even coming to the rescue when they were all in sticky situations. Pokémon is a series that shows whether a character is big or small, they all make a difference.

With Milcrey’s fascination with sweets, she quickly takes to Goh and the cupcake on his plate, giving him an opening to catch the sweet Pokémon. When Goh lets the ecstatic Milcrey out of her Pokeball, he places a small berry on her head causing her to evolve into the Pokémon Alcremie.
8 Wishiwashi, The Small Fry Pokémon

When the Oshawott disturbs the poor Joltik, he is greeted with a powerful zap and Joltik retreats into the grass. Being such a small Pokémon at .04″ and 1.3lbs, finding this Pokémon on the ground can be difficult, as they normally hop a ride on the body of other Pokémon while also soaking up the static energy since it is unable to do so on its own.

Since this is the first time Ash has come across a Pokémon like Comfey, he uses his Pokédex to gather more information on it.

After Allister and Ash’s Pokémon Pikachu struggle to find a way to retrieve the Spiritbomb out of Ash, Allister calls upon his friend Sinistea to assist. Allister explains to the worried Pikachu that Sinistea’s tea can absorb a life force and could possibly flush out the ill-natured spirit residing inside of Ash.
