Top Ten Favorite Companions from the Pokemon TV Show

The Top Ten

1 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.

Dawn shall always be In my heart as the greatest anime character ever and forever

I want a sweetest and caring girlfriend like dawn in real life

Cutest pokegirl ever

She is the original character and is the perfect companion of ash and pikachu. She was also the central character just like ash. Piplup and pikachu are best friends and dawn and ash are best friends. I love her so much... I think she should return... She is perfect for ash, she should be her girlfriend. Although they didn't show any relationship, but several moments are there which show they are made for each other

2 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.

Ash couldn't do without Jim.

Come on now... who else would have been first? - HeavyDonkeyKong

He’s so funny! Plus, he was one of the original companions! Both Misty and Brock are great companions for Ash, since their characters and personalities make for a good team. Brock is my favorite due to how funny he is and because Ash wouldn't be who he is today without Brock. Come on, he had the best quotes! I will take my frying pan, and use it as a drying pan in hopes that Brock with travel with Ash again.

3 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.

Want her back.

Ugh, funny thing was I hated her in the beginning because of how she kept on moaning about her bike. that's what makes her character development even more darn impressive because I loved her by the very end of it. - HeavyDonkeyKong

She was the first companion Ash ever had. - egnomac

Misty will always be the best. and its not nostalgia because I started watching when XY just started

4 May

Probably has the best character development in the show. She actually has a role and isn't just someone Ash travels with. Her character doesn't rely on her interactions with Ash to make her interesting like Misty and Serena, and she isn't just another girl Ash travels with like Iris. Dawn's another great companion of Ash, she's actually my favorite, but I feel like May doesn't get the love and attention she deserves. - dels

May is the best

5 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.

Serena is overrated. Yes, she has character development. Maybe who has the best development is just an opinion, but I think May and Dawn had more than Serena. Her crush on Ash is annoying. I could handle it at first, but once I got 50-60 episodes into XY it seemed to get worse. Her character would be so much better if the majority of her biggest moments didn't involve Ash. - dels

She had a rocky start, but she developed as a character even more than May did (how do you do that? )!

Serena is the best of all she is really amazing and so cute she always supports ash and help's him and shows him the right way so she's the best of all even though she came only in one season she's the best

If Serena’s crush on Ash is somehow funny I will like amourshipping more, honestly. Amourshipping might be romantic but it’s a little boring

6 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.

He had great character development. His dynamic and chemistry with his sister Bonnie was the best in the xy series, and really the whole anime. Ash and him also had a great dynamic and were a nice compliment to each other.

His invention dynamic was hilarious, and his quirks weren't quite as irritating as Cilan's. He was probably the least memorable of the Kalos Crew, but that's not really saying all so much since they were all very good in they're own right. Clemont was a very good character and the perfect successor to Brock. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Bonnie

I didn't really like Max because I found him to b e an annoying know-it-all. But Bonnie sort of fixed all of Max's very problems. She's very cute, and she's very passionate about her dreams. her dynamics with Squishy and Dedene were especially entertaining. I would really love to see her become an official Pokemon trainer. if they ever replace Ash as the protagonist, well then, I HOPE ITS WITH HER! - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Mallow

It's way too early to place her insanely high up since we are only like, 5 episodes into the sun and moon anime, iirc. but, however, well, I am really liking what I see from her so far. - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 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!.

That's the point! I love how he use them all the time! - NintendoMaster853

Liked his food puns. I just hate how he always uses them all of the time. - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 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.

Take away her annoying "little kid" "catchphrase" and then she's actually a pretty good character to me. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 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.
12 Lana
13 Max

Max is May's little sister, introduced in Ruby and Sapphire. Max plays as one of Ash's companions, and he's quite the savage. Seriously, I feel like he should be pretty high up this list.
