Top 10 Best Character Groups in the Pokemon Anime

The very best character groups in the Pokémon anime either Ash's many traveling companions, team rocket, other characters and even actual Pokémon groups like the Squirtle Squad.

The Top Ten

Ash, Misty & Brock

Ash's first group of traveling companions and possibly the best group ever, Misty being the very first trainer to travel with Ash and his longest female companion and even though she and Ash constantly bicker they truly appreciate one another and of course there's Brock Ash's second longest companion a wise and some times goofy around pretty girls together the three of them formed a friendship that will last forever I don't care who comes around there will never be a group like Ash, Misty & Brock.

Misty is the worst among the three, but still awesome. She was annoying in Kanto , but she became mature in Johto region, and in Hoenn, she really grew up a lot.

I really liked their teamwork in the third Pokemon movie.

Three cheers for the original twerp, red head twerpet and the tall twerp

Ash, Dawn & Brock

Diamond and pearl was the best season , I first hated dawn but as I watched the series I realised dawn wasn’t that bad, and in few episodes I was just her fan

Another really good group with Dawn being one of the best female trainers in the anime the only one who comes close to being as good as Misty but not as great as Misty she was a more well developed character who dreams of being a coordinator just like her mother and of course Brock is always good who studies to become a Pokémon breeder and eventually decides to study to become a Pokémon doctor and there's Ash.

Sure it is great as it is my second favorite series in Pokemon after xy... Really enjoyed the series...

One of my favorite team companions. The Diamond & Pearl era is my favorite in the Anime series.

Ash, Serena, Clemont  & Bonnie

I really liked the chemestry between this team... The looked like a family to me... The plot was great... And in my opinion the xy and xyz series is the best series in all of pokemon

One of the best groups with Ash being a lot more mature and actually acts like a real leader, Clemont the second best male trainer companion since Brock an inventor/ gym leader who at first struggled after getting kicked out of his own Gym after his invention Celmbot goes haywire and was motivated by Ash to fight to take back his gym back, Next is Serena who has a one sided crush on Ash who decides to become a Pokémon performer although she he had a rough start as the journey continued she got better she even won the opportunity to challenge Aria for the Kalos Queen and even though she lost she was highly praised by Palermo a former Kalos Queen and Aria's teacher, and finally Bonnie Clermont's spunky sister who dreams of one day being a trainer along with Dedenne.

Why is this below Ash, Dawn, and Brock? This should be number one in my opinion because they definitely felt like a family and a great team! I don’t see what was so great about Ash, Dawn, and Brock’s group chemistry though. They should at least be at 5 or 4 on this list at least but whatever.

The xyz series was the best series Pokemon franchise has given us - ash becoming more mature and strong, greninja becoming ash-greninja, clemont’s failed experiments yet they are cool for the time being, bonnie’s interest in Pokemon, she was better than Max and even though I am a poke shipper, I liked Serena as a character, she is one of my favourite

Still some drawbacks of XY
- Serena’s crush for ash was too much, it didn’t seem natural

- there was less comedy except for Clemont and Bonnie entertained us with few jokes, team rocket wasn’t the same

- even though I am big greninja fan, ash ignored his Pikachu, he even used it less in battles

- should have let ash win the Kalos league because he had the advantage against Alain

- should have let Serena be the Kalos queen, her performance was better than aria

Still, I miss the Kalos characters ♥️♥️♥️

Jessie, James, and Meowth

Considering ash always thinks he is starting on a new journey alone team rovket follows him there... The are one of the longest people who actually appeared in this series... Their comedy and tactics of stealing pokachu in different wats in almost every episode makes them a great team

While they've long over stayed their welcome and its amazing that they haven't been fired after all their past failures they do have a certain charm to them as three lovable losers who just won't quit.

You CANNOT tell me that these guys are not the BEST characters in the anime by far

No one can replace them , without them each episode would be so boring ...

Ash, May, Max & Brock

Sao grupos mais incrivel do mundo

Ash, Iris & Cilan

While people's least favorite traveling companions of Ash I personally didn't think they were that bad after Brock left Cilan really had a hard time taking his place as the new male traveling companion though not as great as Brock he still proves to be good character and Iris a complete change from May and Dawn as she's kind of like a female Tarzan she dreams of becoming a dragon master and lie Cilan she was a decent character when she's not being a pain in the butt and referring to Ash as a little kid.

Shauna, Tierno & Trevor

First inroduced when Ash, Serena, Bonnie and Clemont attended a summer camp in Kalos a group of real close friends each with their own dreams to pursue Shauna looking to be a top Pokemon performer, Tierno loves to dance and incorporates his rhythm style to his Pokémon to use in battle, and Trevor dreams to photograph every Pokémon in existence, though they don't travel together they do end up meeting up together which is always a great moment.

Ash, Mallow, Lana, Kiawi, Sophocles & Lillie

Um... why are these guys on the list...? lol

The Squirtle Squad

Orginally a group of troublesome Squirtles abandoned by their trainers who caused mayhem and mischief until Ash came along and got them to together to put out a big fire and became the local firefighters with its leader joining Ash on his journey and later returned to the group.

Lol why though

Gastly, Haunter & Gengar

Though they only appeared in one episode The Tower of Terror they did make a lasting impression when Ash attempts to catch a ghost Pokémon to battle Sabrina with at the Pokémon Tower in Lavender town he comes face to face with these 3 mischiefs ghosts who kind of resemble the ghostly trio from Casper or the Hitchhiking ghosts from the Haunted Mansion.

The Contenders

Zorua & Zoroark

Especially in Master of Illusions.

Fox + Magic = My life is complete

Serena & Barbie
Cilan, Chili & Cress

Um... Ok? I like Unocal so fine.
