Top Ten Greatest Female Characters from the Pokemon Anime


The Top Ten

1 Dawn Dawn

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

2 Misty

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

3 May May May 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!

Darn it I meant contest *SHIPPING* not Shilling What is wrong with my typing?! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Zoey

If there was one character that said screw gender roles, it is Zoey. Nice to have an attractive tomboy in the anime. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Zoey is very underrated, she was a good rival and friend to Dawn. Also she was really interesting with wearings outfits such as suits and prince-like attire instead of dresses in contests. - marshadow

6 Cynthia

A strong first female champion! - simplyafan

7 Lillie Lillie Lillie is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She serves as one of the player character's allies and traveling companions during the course of the game.

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

Shes by far the female with the most story line in the game and has a lot of potential in the anime

Episode 8 of sun and moon made me fall inove with her. I still like Serena and iris and it is a little bit too early to judge but... I think that Lillie just might be even better! - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Serena Serena Serena 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.

I'm hoping for a special episode with Serena, may, and dawn in the semifinals of the hoenn grand festival together. Pokemon coordination needs it's own series! - HeavyDonkeyKong

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

Why? She's just some girl who's just way too infatuated with Ash. Pokeshipping for the win! - RisingMoon

The Newcomers

? Sabrina Sabrina

Who doesn't loves a mautred, secretive and calm minded gal with dark hair... Besides her appearance her nature is so cool, her pokemons are very dangerous like she is and not to mention how she made ash go to a whole different city to get another pokemon to battle her alakazam. She deserves a place in top 10..

The Contenders

11 Jessie
12 Erica
13 Gardenia

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

14 Bonnie

Adorable girl and what max should have been all along. - HeavyDonkeyKong

15 Lana

Lana is such a good girl. I really loved the episode centered around her. It really shows how deeply she cares about Pokemon and how they are treated. She saved her Popplio from being bullied/mistreated and she ends up saving a bunch of water Pokemon from Team Rocket that would've been seriously hurt from Ash not having foresight of what could happen if he broke Team Rocket's net too soon. - marshadow

Her face is weird, but sun and moon ash's face is rather weirs too. She is a cute girl, but she needs more development, like Mallow. - HeavyDonkeyKong

16 Mallow

I like her and all, but she's basically the opposite of Serena. Serena is a typical I have a crush on the protagonist girl, whereas mallow is just a typical potential love interest for the protagonist girl. Serena got development and grew out of it, so well, hopefully, given time, so will mallow will too. So far Lillie is the only Syn and Moon girl that I truly love, due to episode 8 that is too! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mallow needs an episode that focuses on her soon. Only Kiawe and her haven't gotten an episode yet. - marshadow
