Top Ten Best Characters from the Pokemon Sun and Moon Anime

The Top Ten
Ash Ketchum 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 honestly love Ash from the Sun and Moon series as much as I love Ash from Diamond and Pearl AND X and Y series. He really is one of my favourite characters ever!

He's got his personality back and he's still the competent battler he was in xy. Butthurt complainers were wrong about Sun and Moon.

He's super energetic, and almost has the same name as me! I wish I could go on adventures like him

Ash wins a pokemon league

Toxic Fans=Wait that's illegal

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 the best companion character that we have ever had in a very long time. Like since the days of Brock and Dawn.

Lillie is one of my absolute favorite characters! She's so fond of 'Snowy' and she is definitely improving with Pokemon

I love her but only in the Japanese version
American version kinda sounds weird

She is great. I hope she continues to be one of the main character after the sun and moon serieses


Honestly I think this season is garbage, but Kiawe and the green haired chick are the only characters I care about.

He's like a big brother and caring and also loving he's fun but can be strong and straight forward

He's badass. Also I like his hair

A strong but good boy

Professor Kukui Professor Kukui is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is a Pokémon Professor from the Alola region, as well as the founder of Alola's Pokémon League.

By far one of the best characters I have ever seen. He became one of my favorites and even my favorite teacher. Qualities, he does not lack, being a character hyper charismatic and very endearing. But besides, it's really for me the father and mentor that Ash needed, and I'm just waiting for one thing, it's that it's happening in the series between the two characters.

Ash FINALLY gets a father figure to look up to. Which is one of the reasons why I'm not complaining about Ash being in school.

He's like a father to Ash, he's also a teacher, he's what Ash needed

he is awesome


Nah I think mallows more like me my main pokemon type is grass I'm upbeat I'm mostly happy

Mallow is my favorite of the Main Eight characters (the six companions, rotom dex, kukui) along with Kiawe.

I still think Clemont is a better cook, but mallow comes pretty close.

I think mallow food is great


Two of my favourite females of the Alola Region are Lillie and Lana, and I ship Ash with both of them.

This very sweet girl deserves as much as her love for her friends and her Pokemon

I love Lana she's the most awesome character and the only on this group!

She is cute and cool at the same time

Rotom Dex

He is pretty great in my opinion

I like him

I love how he's super energetic and knowledge-full all the time, although I liked it better when Lillie was there

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.

Olivia Caught the bouquet at Kukui’s wedding. Brock and her held hands. Oh Crap no-


Sophocles is often the butt of "fat kid" and "nerd" jokes, but otherwise, he's a great addition to the cast. While sometimes incompetent at battling, he can hold his own with his talents operating and building technology, usually making good use of his Pokemon in the process. Even with his Nyctophobia and occasional pride, he genuinely cares about his friends and his Pokemon, and shows that dorks have a place in Alola. My personal favorite.

My ears pretty much exploded when this kid opened his mouth.

Today's ep let him shine as a caring person


His jolly attitude is not completely in tact, but his wisdom sure is.

He has a jolly attitude

The Contenders
Gladion Gladion is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He works for Team Skull. He serves as a rival character to the player in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Shut up Kiawe Gladion is 1 a better rival and 2 Gladion is a new type of person in the pokemon anime Kiawe is just the ... fire pokemon trainer - ItzCall

I have to go change my pants I got wet from looking at this. Literally been in two episodes but higher than nutty Samson oak dude.

Best character by far. I like characters that have struggles and just interesting characters

Good character, personality is really good, and unlike most character he changes over time.

Tapu Koko

I just love Tapu Koko

this pokemon is awesome

Mimikyu Mimikyu is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Ghost and Fairy type whose ability, disguise, allows it to take one hit without taking damage

It just wants to be loved!

Unique and dark. Probably will be the most famous Pokémon of the Alola region.

Rowlet Rowlet, known in Japan as Mokuroh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love how he's always dozing off ALL THE TIME! He's so adorable, and when Ash needs him, he's always - sometimes ready

It has a very distinctive personality, so it belongs on this list.

Sometimes the pokemon are more memorable than the humans.

Always sleeping is just the best character trait

Guzma Guzma is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is the leader of Team Skull. He specializes in Bug-type Pokémon.

Guzma: ok wimpod, time to dynamax!
Gloria: wooloo! Tackle!
Guzma: TACKLE! Ha! My beast will not be taken out by a mere ta-
*wimpod used emergency exit*,
Guzma: WHAT THE F-

He is so cool and awesome!
He's like he boss of team cool.

He got dips - ABigOldGrinchLoser

Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a 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.

She was Flanderized a lot and became bland. She is better in the originals.

I love her , she is the best

She doesn’t belong her, because she still acts like a selfish brat.

Samson Oak

I am going to be brutally honest. I do not like him. At all. His so called Pokemon Puns are mental. Replacing a word with the name of a Pokemon just because of the very fact that they start with the same exact letter is not at all making a pun at all. It is just being stupid.

My overall opinion on him has actually changed as of recently. I'm okay with him now.

I love how he's always making jokes! He's so funny and playful

What are you talking about? He's awesome


Bewear the Chuck Norris Teddy Bear Pokemon that would win Ash the League no matter what crap that the writers pulled off.

Team Rocket: 'Yay! It's the first blast off in the Alola region! '
Bewear: 'I don't think so M8.'
*It jumps into the air and catches them*

Bewear is pokemon s excuse for team rocket not drowning and I love him for that

Thank you Bewear for getting rid of the blast off gag (for the most part)

Litten Litten, known in Japan as Nyabby, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I think litten might not only be the best Pokemon from the sun and moon anime but the best pokemon in Pokemon anime history (just my opinion please don't get mad! ) He has a touching back story, a reason For his reject to people and he's just so adorable! He makes litten one of my favourite Pokemon ever!

I love how Litten is always sleeping and sensitive XD

RIP stoutland, yoy will be missed... Especially Litten...

Fire + Kitten = Amazingness

Popplio Popplio, known in Japan as Ashimari, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is super cute and helpful to Lana! Thanks to him, she got a Z-Crystal, he is super energetic and playful, he is one of my favorite Pokemon

Lana's Popplio is so wonderful and cute and I don't understand those people who saw Popplio ugly.

Episode sixteen enough said lolol!

Everyone who said that popplio was ugly was wrong it’s not what it looks like that matters it’s the personality by the way popplio is adorable. CHOOSE POPPLIO! 😆


Her voice was more tolerable in this than Masters. I wish acerola was a main character and replaced Lana or Sophocles.

Just love her personality and especially with Nanu

Lusamine Lusamine is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is the head of the Aether Foundation.

But crazy though


When he strikes that sailor moon pose, he became the best anime girl of the year.
