Top 10 Ways that Any Female Companion Can Be Better Than Serena from Pokemon

21She is her own person instead of trying to copy others
22Having a significant connection with other characters

Gamefreak said that the legendaries in Sun and Moon will have a bigger role in the games than ever before so it's a great time for the anime writers to do the same where its not exclusive to the movies. Like ash can either have a connection with solgaleo or lunala and the female companion has a connection with the one ash doesn't have connections with. - Ruee

Yes! Ruee, I love your idea about the main female and Ash having a connection to Lunala and Solgaleo, respectively (i think it should be in that order, it fits nicely for Ash to be associated with the sun legendary). This would be very similar to what they did in DP with Ash, Brock and Dawn having connections with the 3 lake guardians. Only cooler! - eventer51314

23She dances, likes fashion, and/or cooks as a hobby and not to show off

I have a feeling because of the dancing traditions of Hawaii (which is what Alola is based on), the female companion will most likely be dancing in the anime. If Mallow is the female companion, then she will cook without a doubt because that is a part of her character.

As long as they don't glorify it and make it into a way to get attention, I am completely find with these qualities. This is one main reason why I got disappointed by Serena so quickly. She just did it for attention and to be a sexist stereotype. - Ruee

Yeah, if she dances, I hope it's because dancing is her passion. That would be really cool. Man, your great ideas just further show how badly the writers failed with Serena. - eventer51314

24Having real struggles
25Not a bench warmer
26Use mega evolution or Z moves

It was weird that no one in the group in XY used a mega evolution. Ash Greninja doesn't count as a mega, it's a different form of evolution that we currently know as exclusive to the anime. (as I add this comment, we aren't sure if this would also be in Pokemon Sun and Moon) I hope this time around the female companion can use a mega or at least Z moves. A major battle mechanic introduced in the games. - Ruee

27A goal based around old contests from Hoenn and Sinnoh and not showcases

I know it's unoriginal but if they have to make her have a contest, please keep it based around Pokemon. Also the old contests would look so great with the improved animation. And Showcases just suck in general. - Ruee

28Enter Battling tournaments

I feel like Alola will have a lot of those that isn't just the league. I liked that about the Unova anime. - Ruee
