Top Ten Best Characters from the Pokemon Sun and Moon Anime

The Top Ten
1 Ash Ketchum Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional main 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.

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.

Ash is like my most favorite character I've seen, in ANY season. Nobody will ever top Ash and Pikachu for me

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

2 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.

I love Lillie, she's so ADORABLE and she's so determined. She went to rescue her mother even though it was very dangerous and she fought with her mother, and she was going to do it alone. She didn't even ask for Gladion help even though he did help her

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 Lillie! She is sweet, cute, and awesome! All in one package! I am also an Aureliashipper!

3 Kiawe

Kiawe acts so silly. He acts like he's super strong and everything like that, and then guess what. When he went to Leo's concert, I'm sorry but I will not say Dug-Leo, it's odd, he left crying like a psychopath which is very silly. Kiawe also I remember, his family is like very, very, very focused on fire, they vow to the fire in Wela Volcano, when they get married.

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

He's badass. Also I like his hair

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

4 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.

5 Mallow

I love Mallow, she's amazing. She's very good at cooking and cleaning and everything. She is adorable and very, very kind, just like a perfect example of Alola, I feel like all my favorite characters are really nice, or a great character for the show

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.

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

6 Lana

She's amazing, she was so determined, and she loves the ocean, and water, and water pokemon. Misty also loved water pokemon, but I like Lana a lot more because she's actually nice to everyone, Misty is not very nice. Misty was nice to Rudy, and Danny, but that's only because they liked her and were super nice to her

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

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

Betterment than Serena for sure.

7 Rotom Dex

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

8 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 . ...read more.

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

9 Sophocles

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.

10 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.

Gladion is a great character. He's so dark, but he did want to save his sister, and he wanted to destroy ultra beasts BECAUSE Lillie was "attacked", even though it didn't attack Lusamine, it kidnapped her. Gladion just cares about her, but also will not go home and see her. Just a great character to have on the show

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.

In my game I dress up all black to pretend I am in team skull and role play I am Gladion and Lillie's twin sister.

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

The Contenders
11 Hala

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

He has a jolly attitude

12 Tapu Koko

I just love Tapu Koko

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

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

Sometimes the pokemon are more memorable than the humans.

14 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!

15 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.

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

16 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.’ ...read more.

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

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

17 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.

What are you talking about? He's awesome

18 Bewear

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*

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

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

19 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!

20 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.

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

I love Lusamine, even though she didn't pay attention to what Lillie was saying, but she did want to see her daughter, even though she should have put her daughter way before her work. It was also a relief to know that it was never Lusamine who was yelling I HATE YOU. That was the Ultra Beasts fault

But crazy though

22 Acerola

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

23 Faba

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