Best Humans On Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Misty

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!

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.

I don't hate Misty or anything; yeah she was mean at first, but she became better over time. Although I think she's very overrated. But still, Pokeshipping is better than Amourshipping. - yungstirjoey666

2 Ash

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 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.

I really like Ash, people critisize him for releasing his pokemon. He does it for their own good or hapiness. He released Primeape to let it train and become stronger. He released Lapras so it could go back to it's family. They also blame him for not evolving his pokemon, he just lets it come naturally. Evolving a pokemon too early may decrease their chances of learning attacks. Lt. Surge's Raichu was evolved to early and as a result was pretty slow, unlike Pikachu. He has evolved some good pokemon like Charizard, Infernape, Sceptile, and Greninja but they evolved naturally. I think the fact that he can beat so many legendaries with unevolved pokemon is remarkable. He also devolops a close bond to his pokemon, giving them a reason to battle. He goes through major character devolpment through the show. Pokemon games are much easier since you can plan your strategies and are given time before each attack. In Ash's world, he has to come up with strategies off the bat. People say that he ...more

3 Dawn Dawn

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...

Best character in my opinion! - Unharmless

4 Brock Brock

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!

Brock is so funny and I don't know why. Has anyone else noticed how the guy in the "Barbie Girl" song sounds like him? just wondering!

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 is a pretty nice girl and a good co-ordinator too. She has her rivalry with Drew but she too has good friendship with him. Way to go, princess of hoenn.

6 Cilan 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

7 Professor Oak

What a legend! He is my superhero.

8 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 is the best
Paul is second ps may is beter than dawn and drew smells

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

Gary was here. Ash is a loser. - N64Dude

9 Iris

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!

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

Iris is very fun and her hair! I WANT TO GRAB IT!

The Contenders

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.

13 Kellyn

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

14 Red Red

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!

16 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 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.

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.

People like this horrid excuse for a character? - RiverClanRocks

She is so better than misty, because she is cool, beautifull and happy.

17 Tracey

Good Pokemon watcher. Nothing more to say about him

Tracey only slowed Ash down and sucks balls

If you hate Tracey then you shouldn't vote for him. I'm one of Tracey fans and I can get mad every time when I see someone bashing him -_-. Only Tracey fans should vote for him. - Nectaria

18 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.

19 Lance

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

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