Top Ten Greatest Male Characters from the Pokemon Anime of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Brock 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 is so honest and talented

His blush is so funny and I like him!

Although Ash is good Brock is better

The best male definitely he has funny lines and is cool the only thing I dislike is how his character constantly changes first the mean gym leader to ash then the poor guy who has to care for loads of kids and wears a sergent costume then the friendly happy guy who just joins ash randomly then the funny somewhat crazy character who is crazy for girls overall a very good character

2 Ash Ketchum 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.

The main man!

Ash is awesome than Brock. I have to admit that Brock is weird.

Why is Ash behind Brock? Ash is the best! Brock is WEIRD!

Red easily beats Ash as the best. Red not only got all eight gym badges, but also defeated the entire Team Rocket organization, defeated the Elite Four, defeated the Champion aka Gary, Mega Evolved his Charizard into Mega Charizard X, captured Mewtwo, and completed his Pokedex of all 150 Pokemon (just gotta catch that Mew now). In addition, Red is voiced by Bryce Papenbrook, the same person who voices Kirito, Eren Jaeger, and Rin Okumura. IN CONCLUSION, RED IS BETTER THAN ASH!

Yeah, so? Game and anime are two different canons. And as far as I know, everything is tougher in the anime. - yungstirjoey666

3 James

Real MPV of Pokemon

Remember Beauty and the Beach? James should've won.

Why isn't James higher? He's kind, hilarious and an interesting character with an interesting backstory! I mean, what other trainer actually *asks* their pokemon whether they'd like to join them rather than just throwing a pokeball at them, especially somebody who's meant to be a villain! He also has some really funny lines and is generally just a really likeable character.

My favorite character I love team rocket and hate Ash and his companies (except Brock, (3rd favorite after Jessie) Dawn, and May)

4 Gary Oak Gary Oak Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak . He had cheerleaders & his own car. more.

He's handsome - JolteonIsAwesome

5 Paul

He's a pure example of a rival

I like his remarks - PokemonGOSucks

6 Max

He is better than all other characters because he has theoretical knowledge while all others only have practical knowledge(Some do have theoretical knowledge but not to his extent). if he combines his knowledge with practical application., he can do wonders

Better than everyone he was the genius and he should return as the lead role may's role really covered him but she was worth nothing and the worst character ever

He was the best better than ash better than may better than brock better than dawn and so on... he just needs a proper chance

The best character ever
