Top 10 Pokemon Characters Who Should Return

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. ...read more.

She is just perfect friend of Ash... I love her character so much I can never stop thinking about she being with Ash... She was one of the reasons why dimaond and pearl was the best season... She has a character too similar to that of Ash... Her contest moves have made Ash learn so many new moves like counter shield, Ice aquajet etc... She and Ash have share a bind so strong that no girl can take it over. I just love dawn's character so much... Seeing Ash and dawn part ways in dimaond and pearl as well as in be made my heart heavy

She was featured in lesser episodes than misty may an serena although she is been considered the best pokegirl, check out if you doubt. And the fact is not hidden that her cheerful and never give up attitude makes us yearning more for her. I would personally love to experience watching dawn and Ash's chemistry back on screen (simply because I am a pearlshipper).

She is the one who should return...
She is the reason that diamond and pearl was my favorite season and she is continuing to be my favorite character in the anime. She is the right choice like a girlfriend for ash. And perhaps she is the only poké girl who had a central importance like ash... She had her own goals and her contest moves made ash invent new moves... She must return and should never be removed from the anime

She was ranked on here the most favorite, so why is she not ranked number 1? Easy, one reason is Brock which we should have no problem with. The other reason is Nostalgia For Misty. May is definitely not number three. Duplica should not be anywhere near 4. For me it's 1. Brock 2. Dawn 3. Misty

2 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.

The Series has never been the same ever since Misty left, sure she made an appearance here and there but I really want to see her travel with Ash again, even though May, Dawn, Iris and Serena all took her place none of them have ever been able to fill the void that was left by Misty, Please Bring her back.

Its finally happening Misty is finally returning not only Misty but Brocks also returning.

I don't care what it takes they need to bring back Misty.

They need to get rid of Serena and bring back Misty.

3 May May is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a ...read more.

Just because Ash saved her life doesn't mean advanceshipping is canon. Ash got saved by many people including Misty. May never saved Ash's life so this rediculous arguments needed to be stopped. @dumb advanceshipper in the comment section

I kinda hate May for one reason because I'm a Yu-Gi-Oh fan. Why?

She didn't gave Max a single flipin Pokémon like Bonnie who got Denede (4got the spelling of a Chinese cat mouse thing)

Bring back May and Drew. It would be great to see them come back together.

4 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.

Brock should return (again) for pokemon journeys at a very least a guest charcter that stays at least for a couple episodes Brock is the perfect source for comeady in pokemon and give pokemon back its old charm! (Though I like the new ones)

Brock is funny and smart. I miss him

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 ...read more.

Serena should return as well also I want to see how her Braixen is doing and her Pokemon Performenaces now that would be a real treat!

They all are awesome beautiful and and have the wordy and should come back or else I will cry

6 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. ...read more.

So he can beat up Ash

7 Greninja

Greninja the most powerful coolest and fastest pokemon ash has ever had and through Greninja is the closeset thing to mega evolution and it's equal if not more powerful Greninja should've absolutely clapped Alain's Charizard.

Bring back Greninja, please. Because it's the best Pokemon Ash ever had. Bring him in the world coronation or when he visits Kalos once again, make him meet his Greninja.

8 Duplica
9 The Ghost of Maidens Peak

They need to do a follow up episode were Ash and friends meet the ghost of the soldier that she was in love with and have to figure how to reunite the two.

The story was very romantic and I would love it if Ash and his friends (maybe Gastly) found the soldier she was in love with and return him to her.

10 Bonnie Bonnie is created by game freak & Nintendo. She was in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, as Clemont's (the electric type gym leader of Lumiose City) younger sister. She gave out quizzes to trainers who came to challenge the gym, who if they get it wrong would have to challenge a trainer. ...read more.
The Contenders
11 Paul

Bruh we gotta see the long-term effects of this boi's rivalry with Ash, because we all know they exist and we all need to see his current companions react to their banter.

I want Paul to return just to see if his personality has changed but also he is the coolest character as well even if he was mean in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

I don't care how cold, grumpy, mean, selfish and stubborn Paul is. He needs to return!

As much I don't like the guy it would be interesting to see Paul return.

12 Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

As the same with Greninja Sceptile is extremely fast I'd love for him to return that would be awesome! And that would be a bonus if he decided to get a key stone and a sceptileite and mega evolve sceptile that would be the best bonus ever!

13 AJ

I can't believe they never brought him back for another episode he would have been a great rival for ash.

14 Bianca Bianca is a character from Pokemon by gamefreak & Nintendo. She is one of the rivals & a childhood friend of the protagonist in Pokemon black and Pokemon White. She lives in Nuvema Town, and was held back of being a Pokemon trainer because of her overprotective father wouldn't let her be one. Bianca ...read more.

She should return to Alola same as Iris and Dawn because I want her to meet Dawn, and maybe Bianca's Minccino will have a crush on Dawn's Buneary because they're both Normal Types! :>>

15 Tracey Sketchit
16 Sabrina Sabrina is a fictional character in the Pokemon universe as the gym leader of the Saffron City Gym who specializes in psychic type Pokemon.

It would be very interesting to see what become of Sabrina after Ash's battle with her in season 1.

17 Krookodile
18 Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Infernape should also return in fact Greninja Sceptile Infernape and Charizard should all return. Infernape with blaze is really strong maybe it can rival even greninja's Ash Greninja form but sense its well water fire well that probaly won't go well...for infernape if they actually faught.

19 Casey
20 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 ...read more.

Iris is awesome, but nobody realizes it 'cause they're either racist or can't get over the fact that she calls Ash a little kid, which he actually is. How sad. T_T

Iris definitely did a lot to improve her progress as Dragon Master *cough* unlike Misty *cough* and Serena *cough*. It would be interesting to see her as an improved Dragon Master and what she's been enduring in Unova. Black and White was an excellent series, and her return would definitely add some (as Cilan would say) spice to the series.

~Silverfrost of RiverClan

Please bring iris back to meet ash again and meet serena,Bonnie and Celmont for the first time!

I miss Iris, too.

21 Max

I wanted this guy to return, why?

1. A Redeeming character since Wish Upon The Seven Nights and Lucario and The Mysteries of Mew
2. Gets his own 4 sequels, The Prince of the Sea, Manaphy (as Max), Kyurem (Max) vs The Sword of Justice, XYZ Championship Arc (as Alain) and I Chooses You! (as Marshadow)
3. If he got Ash's Septile, Ash's Greninja (that would be ridiculous amazing if the writers will do that) or a Spiked-Eared Pichu, he'll be the next Gold
4. Remove that ridiculously useless half sister/not so sister May (Max got adopted after Delia got rped by Butch in the 6th movie) and replace his partners. His faithful new friends/partners are Serena and Tracey following his Rivals, Ash, Iris and Alain.
5. The 3 Main Villains are Cyrus, Lysandre (also the 2 Real Villains are spared by Bonnie's faithfulness) and Arceus. SPOILERS: Arceus is evil because He send his granddaughter, Jirachi a curse. A curse that let her put to sleep for a thousand years and it's only up to ...more

If they ever do bring Max they should give him his first Pokemon from his dad Norman and travels with May to start his Pokemon training early.

22 Sawyer

Sawyer is one of the strongest rivals ash has even he lost to him once and his sceptiles frenzy plant may spell trouble for ash other than that It's always intresting to him on screen I hope he did achieve his dream.

23 Ritchie

Ritchie should return for a epic rematch with I was so dissapointed and angry that charizard flat out fell asleep SEIOuSLY CHARIZARD you ruined the fight! And he would make a perfect rival for ash.

They need to bring Ritchie back so he and Ash can have their long awaited rematch.

24 Miette
25 Korrina Korrina is a fictional character in the Pokémon Series as the Shalour City Gym leader in the XY series, in the anime she's a cheerful girl with a explosive personality she has a Lucario who she raised and grew up with from when it was a Riolu, she was later tasked by her grandfather Gurkinn with finding ...read more.
