Best Humans On Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ more.

Misty can battle, she's full of attitude and always ready to follow her friends if they're in danger or need some help. Also, she doesn't clint to Ash too much which annoys me a lot when it comes to some other female supporter characters in Pokémon. There's just something special about Misty, that cannot be explained. I'm sure part of it is about her being the first friend Ash ever gets in anime, but that's not the whole truth. It's also because of her boyish character and sweet side when it comes to being a girl. She doesn't need that girlish look - she need just her personality!

Mist in German means poop. Why would you name a character this?

Misty is possibly the one person who has had an enormous impact on Pokemon anime.. Just try googling the number of people who stopped watching Pokemon when misty went or are watching only to see if misty returns..
Plus she's much stronger than the other companion girls.. Because she BATTLES.. And is a GYM LEADER..

Misty is so pretty and the best female character. I like her very much. LOVE MISTY!
All about the girls is ( in order from best to worst)
Dawn was pretty and nice. She was really awesome.
Iris was cool and tomboy natured. I like her very much and I don't think she is ugly but she was very good.
May was a confident girl. She was tomboyish and she shrieked too much.
Serena is not good. She only cares about Ash and does not focus on her training and she too much girly and not cool.

2 Ash Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

I love Ash! He's the main character of Pokemon! In school we had to choose a cartoon character that we would want to be friends with, and I said Ash. HE HAS PIKACHU! He always supports his friends and watches out for them. He encourages them to do their best and cheers them on all the way! He REALLY SUPER DUPER loves Pokemon. ASH DESERVES TO BE NUMBER 1! GO ASH! 1

I am a twelve year old girl and I started seeing Pokemon the last year and now I love ash so much from any other characters. My friends teased me that for seeing Pokemon but I know within my heart it is the best for me. Ash has inspired me a lot for which I have grown as a determined and confident girl. Love you, Ash

Ash is not only the main character, but he's pure at heart, trains his Pokemon non stop, and also known as "The Chosen One". He's already surpassed his rivals like Gary, Richie and Paul. His Charizard even beat an Articuno! So I say Ash is the Number 1 Character of all time besides the trainer Red.

ASH is good but does not controls on its gusa and he did every thing faster than don and he has a best control on its pokemon such as picachu and he has overconfedence or he has a truthful heart and good friendship with all.

3 Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. more.

She is an overall great character with an amazing character development when she lost two contests in a row. It really brought out the best in her and it clearly matured her afterwards. I love May and Misty but Dawn will always be my favorite out of the three. And I was extremely surprised when she ALMOST won the Grand Festival in her FIRST year! She is clearly Top Coordinator material and hopefully we get to see her again in the future along with May and Misty.

Diamond and Pearl is the first Pokemon series I watched from start to finish. I'd heard of other companions beforehand like May and Misti, but when Dawn was introduced I instantly fell in love with her. I am not a girly girl, but I loved the fact that a character has been introduced who did get bothered by the fact that her hair didn't look great in the morning because I found it funny. I loved her character development as well; the focus on her harsh loss of confidence when she lost two contests in a row, and the focus on building herself back up again. I just love her, I still do!

As far as I am concerned...
Misty thought she was better than ash, though she wasn't.

May didn't trust herself and relied too much on ash.

Dawn was perfect, she asked straight forwardly for joining the gang, cared for her Pokemon just as much as Ash and trusted herself than rather follow Ash but still respected him, and stood by him whenever Paul insulted him...

Think too many people 'hate her' for pointless reasons. Such as being 'too girly'. If they had made her a carbon copy of tomboyish Misty or May, it wouldn't have been as interesting. Perhaps not my favorite, but I wanted to put my opinion out there.

4 Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . more.

He just deserves to be on top, he's funny and he cares about his pokemon. Honestly I'd love to be his friend if he was real. He's a really chill and laid back guy.

When Brock gets funny, he gets extremely funny. To the point where I hope they bring him back sometime in the future. Just a likable guy. Many people tend to claim they hate one Pokemon character r another but very few if any can say that Brock's inclusion was a bad addition.

How can you not like him? He's so funny and so original. I love his personality because he can always make me laugh whetever his trying to flirt to girls or when he sayings funny things. And when it is serious he becomes very mature and like a older brother. Good dammit what I miss him.

He goes for every girl he sees! What a legend!

5 May

May absolutely stands out to me among the cycle of rotating female leads in this show. In my opinion, she is the best female companion Ash has ever had, for two reasons: 1) her character development arc is the best in the series besides Ash's and 2) she is finally a POSITIVE role model for young girls, someone who has realistic feminine traits but at the same time is strong-willed and goal-oriented. Her purpose on the show is not just to butt heads with Ash or have a crush on him and shed light on HIS character (ahem, Misty, Iris and Serena), but actually to have her own growth and her own journey. Dawn was a good lead also in this sense, kind of a remix of May, but May did it first and better. For the first time during the Hoenn arc, I found myself equally invested in the female lead's battles and contests as I was in Ash's, which is something I cannot honestly say for any of the other arcs. May is the first girl who was a true second protagonist on the show, instead of being a 2-3 ...more

I've followed the series since the very beginning, and as much as I agree that it keeps getting worse every year, I wish older fans could give the newer characters a chance. Many of those who support Misty seem to do it just because she left as the series began to change, and most people were negative about that change. There were other factors than just Mistys depart that made Pokemon worse, both from the games and the anime. Some of those who were there from the start may claim that they're true pokemon fans for that reason, and that the younger fans know nothing about pokemon. I think the one who accepts all generations of pokemon, no matter which one they grew up with, is a true pokemon fan. I try to follow that road and not be too nostalgic about the early episodes even if some of them gives me shivers by just thinking of them. I voted for May simply because I think she's the best main character so far, but I won't stop watching pokemon completely just because she, and all the ...more

She's strong in different ways, is the original contest girl, isn't too girly like Dawn or too tough (? ) like Misty. And She has some of my favourite Pokemons with her. We saw her progress during the series so I think they creators of the anime did rather well on her part. The Wallace Cup was great and she doesn't seen too bothered by her loss (Although Glaceon seem to be). In short I just think May is a really good character.

She's the first female character that I actually liked. OK OK Dawn IS nice and cool but she is SO not a match against May. I really like May's feminine traits and the thing is she can also be a pretty good tomboy. She is also pretty strong, it was just out of PURE LUCK that Dawn won the Wallace cup instead of her. She also has most of my fave Pokemon. KEEP SUPPORTING MAY THE BEST EVER Pokemon COORDINATOR!

6 Gary

How can you NOT love this guy? His arrogance (in my opinion) is oddly attractive, and how he became a better person made him even better. He's also the best-looking character in the anime, in my opinion.

Gary was here. Ash is a loser. - N64Dude

He's such a jerk.

I love him.

Well I like and don't like him too. Little bit of over-confident guy.

7 Professor Oak

What a legend! He is my superhero.

He is dumb in a funny way

Lovely man, he is so dedicated to Pokémon! I wish we knew more about him, he’s such an interesting character.

It’s the legend himself! Watch out Mega Rayquaza, Arceus, and Ultra Necrozma! Oak incoming!

8 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 don't mind the fact she likes Ash, but it could've been written better. I like her as a character, but unfortunately a lot of people dismiss what she's actually like and people just see her as amourshipping. This is the thing that the writers have done to commercialise Amourshipping, especially in 2015. Maybe I would've understood if this was done in 1998, but EVEN THEN MISTY WAS INDEPENDENT. I have no idea why they decided to make Serena clingy, such a bad decision. If Serena had a canon crush on Ash and was STILL very independent, I would've seen her as the most realistic character. She's becoming more independent, true, but for a 10 year old there was way too much dependence. Not a very good example for young, gullible girls.

People like this horrid excuse for a character? - RiverClanRocks

She is sweet and also kind, unlike Misty who treated him like trash. - NaruHinaBlaze1

She is so pretty and cares so much for her Pokemon! She's really the only one who I remember even talking about Pokemon preforming also, which I find very awesome about her.

Serena's character development is amazing. Everyone just ignores that and instead just she her as a girlfriend of Ash's. New favorite character.

9 Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris more.

Personally, Iris was the best female companion in my opinion. From what I've seen, people say that the only reason that they dislike her is because of the whole "little kid" thing. The thing is Ash is 10, he is a little kid... People find really weird reasons to hate on a certain character.

Iris is the most beautiful of all the girls. Yup! I said it and it's my opinion she is way prettier than all of the main girls. I also love Iris because she reminds me of Misty who is also beautiful and they are both independent/strong trainers that can put Ash in his place. I love strong female characters and Iris is amazing! She becomes the Unova Champion too which is also a plus!

Iris is the best the reason people hate her is because she shows no interest in ash

I actually love Iris. Not as much as Dawn and Misty, but she's great too.

10 James

James is literally the best pokemon trainer. He asks his pokemon if they want to come with him. And no, James isn't a ad person, he's just a bad villain.

I was really sad when the cactus Pokemon left to be trained by Gardenia. I just love him.

He is such a cute and emotional guy. I wonder why no one has votes store for him.

James should me higher

The Contenders

11 Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

I Like him cause he is super cool

He wears a bow tie. Bow ties are cool. (And yes I am a fan of pokemon and doctor who)

12 Paul

Best rival character since Gary Oak

Has nice Pokemon and has a torterra.

The only charcter from Diamond & Pearl series that I liked.

13 Giovanni

He is leader of team rocket, he is possibly ash's dad, he is a gym leader, he can negotiate with anyone, even mewtwo, he is evil, he is unbeatable and just plain awesome - iamdwaynewhite

Giovanni is a awesome villain! - Weasltown

Very underrated character

This guy is so kickass, that I don't even WANT to battle him.

14 Tierno

Tierno Is really op and all genwunners love him. - PhantomPowah

15 N

I always found N a little more interesting than the other characters that meet you as you go through the game. N has a really cool story to him too.

Can I fangirl here? OK, I'm gonna start fangirling pretty hard. N is just SOOO cute and precious! He's sweet and quirky and he has completely captured my heart. It also helps that he seems like he might have Asperger's syndrome, just like me. I hope that doesn't affect anyone else's opinions of him. HOW is this guy not in the top 10?!

N is amazing, he's got a great story, and deep philosophical inquiry. He's also a pretty boy and I will fight you on it.
How is Tracy above him?

Hello black/white players, how he is only #25?

16 Bianca Bianca is a character from Pokemon by gamefreak & Nintendo. She is one of the rivals & a childhood friend of the protagonist in Pokemon black and Pokemon White. She lives in Nuvema Town, and was held back of being a Pokemon trainer because of her overprotective father wouldn't let her be one. Bianca more.

She kinda reminds m of Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter

17 Richie

He is one of my favorite rivals and characters ever. I'm so glad that he is on this list. I was so moved when I saw him being listed on the list. I agree with the user who voted for him. Poor Ritchie, he is so underrated. I wish he should have been more popular instead of getting bashed by his haters. He was also the rival that I wished for Ash to have. - Nectaria

I like him very much. Really an amazing character.

18 Lt. Surge
19 Moms

WHO IS MOMS? Was this auto correct

The mothers in pokemon are terrible in raising childeren letting them go around the world alone when they are 10years old

I laughed so hard when I saw. this

Prepare for trouble! Make it double. To protect the world from devestation! To unite all peoples within our nation! To anounce the evils of truth and love! Jessie. James. Team Rocket blasts of at the speed of light! Surrender now or prepare to fight! Meowth that's right^_^ - sohimolo

20 Burgundy Burgundy is a fictional character who appears in the Pokémon Black & White anime series, a C-class Pokémon Connoisseur and rival to Cilan who she vowed revenge after losing to him in a Gym battle and evaluating her Pokémon she became motivated to study and become a high ranking Connoisseur in order more.
21 Red Red is a Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearance is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearances in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Red, Green, Blue, more.

How is Red not on this list yet? Red is THE BEST Pokemon trainer out there. He was the first champion and the first playable character in the games. Battling him in Gold/Silver/Heart Gold/Soul Silver is just so epic and fun to train for.

Red owns Ash, too.

Unlike Ash, the guy wins most of his battles and became the champion as well as killing his rivals raticate by accident - Cyclone97

Red is gold compared to Ash, ash saved the world ten times but still, red is really good. he disbanded team rocket, And can kick ashes ass and completed the pokedex, not to mention won the Pokémon league!

((red is a game character what y'all doing))

22 Shauna
23 Zoey

Zoey has a really unique character design, and she is also the first female rival in the show. She's also not afraid to deny the stereotype of femininity that May, Misty and Dawn are confined to, as she wears tomboyish outfits and has shorter hair, making her something of a role model.

24 Drew

Drew rip of may's clothes and take your clothes off and have uncensored unprotected pornography intercourse sex with may I sentience you!

Drew is an amazing guy I have ever seen in Pokemon...I have a crush on him...

He's underrated.
No doubt

My OTP for any drew ship is mayxdrew contestshipping, but I also like ashxdrew respectshipping. it's so much unique in it's own way.

25 Jessie

I like this spitfire. She is the real member of team rocket, I feel. Besides, she is a good co-ordinator and performer too!

I had a crush on her when I was 9 and watching Pokémon

26 Tracey

Good Pokemon watcher. Nothing more to say about him

I am a tracey fan

Gg Tracey, stopped pokemon from dying without Brock.

27 Korrina Korrina is a fictional character in the Pokémon Series as the Shalour City Gym leader in the XY series, in the anime she's a cheerful girl with a explosive personality she has a Lucario who she raised and grew up with from when it was a Riolu, she was later tasked by her grandfather Gurkinn with finding more.
28 Skyla
29 Kellyn

Kellyn is my favorite Pokemon character ever! He's kind, sweet, loyal, and SUPER AWESOME! He really loves Pokemon.

30 Max

He is cooler than his sister, May. I really like this cutey.

Max a baby, naïve, and stubborn. But he still is the only one who could befriend Jirachi... guess that's a thing...

This guy should be number 1 because he is the most friendly plus he can probaly talk pokemon into the pokeball such as deoxys

31 Bryan
32 Casey
33 Whitney
34 Lance

Lance is ok but he doesn't stand a chance against Cynthia!

LANCE ALL THE WAY! The true dragon master... :D

Yeah go lance the cheater!

35 Clemont Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. more.

I want Clemont to become president.

He is so adorbs. He is my favorite character in HISTORY (not just Pokemon. ) We all have that character who we just wanna give a big bear hug to right?

He has nice eyes.

What a real inventor. I wish no more machines should fail.

36 Looker

So awesome! Looker is super generous (remember that time he bought lunches for everyone on his train? ) and he always does the right thing. He has a super cool trench coat, and he's a spy! #1!

Number 36?!? Really?!

37 Acerola

Yes, I MEAN the game. This says best human characters on Pokémon, and Red is on here as well. So here we go...

Acerola is a character that has helped me grow in so many ways. She honestly was one of the reasons that I got into Pokémon. I was pretty uninterested in Sun and Moon because the characters didn’t seem interesting, and the only reason that I had gotten into Pokémon was because of Go.

But then I ended up seeing a video of the elite four. I remembered Hala and Olivia from the trailer, so I didn’t care all that much about them. I found Kahili’s design uninteresting as well. But then there’s an adorable little girl with a cat smile.

Acerola is absolutely adorable. She’s like a cute little puppy that you just want to snuggle with. She’s intelligent, and good at battling enough that she was not only a trial captain, but an ELITE FOUR member as well! When she’s around the same age as the player. How can someone say that’s not ...more

38 Nathan

this guy got almost all the great Pokemon

39 Sabrina Sabrina is a fictional character in the Pokemon universe as the gym leader of the Saffron City Gym who specializes in psychic type Pokemon.

I like her because my name's SABRINA too

Hey people forget about her?
She is the best and especially after Heart Gold and Soul Silver

40 Platinum Berlitz

Best character from manga EVER!

41 Tobias

His whole party is full of legendries

I love tobias - boltslegend

Who wouldn't love a guy with legendaries.

42 Bonnie Bonnie is created by game freak & Nintendo. She was in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, as Clemont's (the electric type gym leader of Lumiose City) younger sister. She gave out quizzes to trainers who came to challenge the gym, who if they get it wrong would have to challenge a trainer. more.

She is a tomboyish natured cute girl. I like her deddene very much.

Come on, 38?! Sheis hilarious and I love ❤ how she is always asking for girls to take care of clemont

Whenever she sees a pretty girl, it's like:

Bonnie- WOW, YOUR A KEEPER! Will you take care of my brother?
Clemont-(aipom arm) Bonnie! I told you not to do this! This is so embarrassing...

How is she not higher?

43 Archie

I love Archie's design in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire! He looks amazing! I also love his personality, which is my reason to getting to know him better! Team Aqua? Totally cool!

Pretty cool guy. He's a PIRATE

44 Old Man Swamp

He takes care of baby mudkips that needs some respect

45 Ethan

Dude, he beat RED, saved Johto, captured Ho-Oh and Lugia, and became the strongest trainer in the Pokemon World. - FrozenHatingPokefan

46 Solana
