Top Ten Greatest Female Characters from the Pokemon Anime


The Top TenXW


Yay! Dawn's #1! She definitely deserves it. She battled way more than any of the other main females. She was the most supportive of Ash, yet he never overshadowed her. She was also the only female companion seen to train regularly with Ash. He even got inspiration from the combination moves she used in her contests. Heck, even Paul, Ash's strongest rival, adopted the 'counter-shield' move she invented. She was brave, sweet, optimistic and funny. And she was easy to emphasize with when she struggled through hard times. - eventer51314

Dawn was a great character! She was super sweet, silly at times, fun, positive, supportive, and pretty! She was girly for herself unlike SERENA who's existence revolves around Ash. - simplyafan

Dawn is by far the best female character in Pokemon. She is so strong compared to all of the other female characters and got to the final round of the grand festival! She deserves #1!

Finally the only list which Misty isn't number 1 - yungstirjoey666

In my opinion Misty is a strong female character and I think she is the best out of all of the female characters in Pokemon!

Misty should be the first and best, I wish she came back...

Misty was the very first and she deserves this title, but Dawn will always outshine everyone else. Especially because sinnoh is my fave region.. - Perrywinks

3MayMay is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a more.

I love May and could really connect with her many traits and to me was the greatest coordinator ever and way better than Dawn! Only problem. Advancedshipping, which is too overrated and can never beat Contestshipping!


A strong first female champion! - simplyafan


Iris is a better tomboy than Misty - yungstirjoey666

9SerenaSerena has proven to be a kind and polite girl but she can also be openly rebellious towards her mother, Grace. In Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, she refused to wake up when Grace ordered her to, and gave a sassy response to her mother's call to watch the news. This tumultuous relationship more.

No! Why is she on here! She's ok now but she basically revolves her life around Ash! Kalosshipping for the win!


The Contenders


Lillie is so sweet! I think she is cute and her friends will help her with her fear of Pokemon.


She's a gym leader. Not to mention her Cherubi is adorable!
