In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from.

Dawn is just like Ash that's why they are 'best friends'.

Ash and dawn are made to be together

Why doesn't ash date her?

I am a pokeshipper but Dawn is also great.
Girly but tough and awesome.

I also like pearlshipping because Dawn and Ash a really great friends!
I won’t mind if you say Dawn is better than Misty but never Serena.

Misty is always the best Pokemon trainer who travelled with Ash... And Ash always had a crush on Misty and also Misty had a crush on Ash. But the thing is Ash has a crush on Serena too... The only reason I hate Ash is because of this.

Misty was the very first person to travel with Ash, she was even in the first episode - egnomac

She's is the best girl I had ever seen she loves ash, care, fight, help others to solve the problem, very intelligent, a good mother and very friendly with pokemon she is the best pokegirl and female companion of ash

She is best.

Brock is love, Brock is life

Brock was his longest staying partner

4 Serena (Kalos) Serena (Kalos) 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 ...read more.

To the other person being girly isn't a bad thing. That is a biased reason to dislike a cartoon character. There are more things to life than hating something that doesn't exist.

Ugh! No. She is the worst.

Shut it, loser! Nobody wants to hear such old fashioned statements and pathetic insults to best girl! - NaruHinaBlaze1

Serena is the best poke girl but not the best companion ash has had that is Brock no doubt.

@NaruHinaBlaze 1 shut up!
You can hate Misty but why we can’t hate Serena?

5 May (Hoeen)

I liked the student/teacher relationship that Ash and May had for the series until she was able to start standing on her own and Ash looked on proudly. If May didn't have the crappy baggage known as Max by her side she might have been higher on the list.

She is the best travelling companion of ash after brock and her relationship with ash is also cute.

May is the best trainer ash befriended. She can best ash. Her unique technique making ability is same as ash. No other companion are good as her. She also have some special Pokemons like glaceon and blaziken and venusaur and wartortle. So she is the best of all trainers at befriended.

May likes a lot ash if there is no useless character max.may used to show more affection ash. There is no wonder if she kisses ash. They both are perfect pair to each other. We had seen it in the last episode of battle frontier in which they both end up the contest with a tie as a perfect pair she stopped ash so many while he was going rivalry. In manaphy movie ash was disappeared at the lost then we can see the tears from her eyes. May best partner is ash.

6 Iris (Unova) Iris (Unova) 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 ...read more.

Yeah what's so bad about her. Ash is a little kid and all the other female protagonists have not much good goals and Serena's goal is just to be with ash forever. Iris actually has an interesting goal. To be a dragon master and dragon types r my favorite type. So that's why I want to rip her pathetic rival to shreds. I mean at least people on here have a good reason to hate her but some people hate her just because she is black. That's racist because my dad is black. And she's a really cool character. At least she doesn't like ash because all the other female protagonists like ash so much.

Better than lovesick little Serena. This girl is awesome! - FrozenHatingPokefan

She's my favorite

Most underrated character EVER! A simple line doesn’t make her the worst. I know, it was annoying to hear “YOU’RE SUCH A KID,” but she still had a personality and goal unlike Serena. Serena was just stupid. Serena was a bad stereotype and did nothing in the group. Serena has NO goal and was useless. Iris is one of my favorite companions. Cilantro is also underrated.
