Title says all.

Nebby, I know for a fact, but he released it when it fully evolved.
I guess it could count. Though technically Nebby had to be released.

As Fusion Elitist Jason said, Ash technically "owned" Nebby for a short amount of time, but never officially caught it.


In SM067, Ash encountered a Poipole who seemed strangely attached to Pikachu. After a small incident in which Pikachu went missing, Rowlet was poisoned, and Team Rocket appearing (and consequently disappearing), Poipole was confirmed to be an Ultra Beast. Ash was permitted to capture it, though he failed several times as Poipole thought the catching process was a game. After Ash helped it understand what was really happening, Poipole allowed itself to be captured, and was allowed to stay with the group until they could find its Ultra Wormhole and send it back.

However, Ash did catch a Poipole at one point in Ultra Adventures, apparently. This could possibly count, but he did release it. Also, Poipole is an Ultra Beast, and may not count as a Legendary Pokémon.

Other than that, Ash did not own any other legendaries. He did own a pseudo legendary, Goodra, in X/Y however.

Poipole is an Ultra Beast, Not actually a legendary/Mythical. Also to note is that the Tapus are Land Guardian Pokemon, not Legendaries/Mythical, and Type: Null and Silvally are not Legendary/Mythical.

Side note, Necrozma is actually considered an ultra beast as well as being legendary, meaning they are 2 different things (Like Land Guardian and whatever Type: Null/Silvally are).
Actually, the Tapu Guardians and Type:Null / Silvally are legendary Pokémon. This is an actual, confirmed fact because if you go to the Legendary Pokémon Website for the 2018 events (https://www.pokemonlegendary.com), you will notice that they are included in their list of all legendary Pokémon.

Poipole, maybe not...
Good answer! Thanks.
Add Spoiler Warning.

Yes. Melmetal in s22 episode 112 ash caught a meltan that was found by rowlet. In episode 138, meltan evolved into a melmetal making ash have a powerful legendary.

Meltan and Melmetal are mythical, not legendary.
