Cap Company Launches Pokemon Ash Ketchum’s First Hat

Ash's First Hat With the "L" Logo will Make you a Real-Life Trainer

Trainers, a new, real-life Ash Ketchum hat with the first logo from the original series is now available and trust me, it looks awesome.

The New Era Cap Company has partnered up with Pokemon Go and they’ve designed a series of new Pokemon branded hats. They also designed a real-life Ash Ketchum hat and you can check it out below.

Ash’s first hat, worn during the original series, is easily the most well-known: an official Pokémon League Expo hat that was red and white with a green, stylized “L” on the front. There were only 100 of these hats which were given away by the Pokémon League, and Ash claims to have “sent in about a million postcards” in order to obtain it. Misty also tried to win it but stated she only sent in one postcard. Ash wore this hat during his journey through Kanto, the Orange Archipelago, and Johto, and was very attached to it, becoming enraged when a Mankey stole it and played keep-away with it in Primeape Goes Bananas. The design may be loosely based on Red’s Generation I hat, and in early concept sketches for the anime, Ash’s hat matched Red’s exactly.

There are two versions of the hat, a kid version, and an adult version. The kid version cost $36 and the adult hat cost $50 on the Japanese New Era website.

You can also find the Ash Ketchum hat on eBay, and they are double the price.
