10 Reason Why Serena from Pokemon is Not Bad

egnomac
I'm really sick and tired of soo many people hating on Serena despite not bieng quite as good as some of the other female Pokemon characters there are still some good things about Serena of course if you don't agree than thats okay.

The Top Ten

1 She Really Matures as the Series Went On

Aside from her relationship with her mother improving, I wouldn't really say she matured. Plus, she's essentially still the same, which is emphasized highly by when she declared that she wants to become attractive for "Ash-sama" even though she already has a goal of her own set on Pokemon contests. Not trying to be mean here. Just saying. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Barely. The few things she matured with is handling losses in Showcases and her relationship with her mom. She still very self absorbed/obsessive about Ash, ignores Clemont, needs to be spoon fed what she should do with her life and encouragement to do something, etc. - Rue

How?

I’m just saying this, SERENA IS NOT HORRIBLE! Almost all Serena themed lists are like “How she should die” and that stuff. As an amourshipper I must share my opinion. I never really liked Serena before, but after Shauna was introduced, she started to get on my likes. I was still a PearlShipper then, but later on I started shopping amour. Everyone is all like “Serena is just an Ash follower and ignores Clemont.” I know a bunch of GeekChic shippers, so there isn’t much problem. I don’t mind non-amour shippers, but Serena haters get on my nerves REAL BAD. I find her original and cute.

2 She Inspires Ash to Try Again After Losing to Viola

Okay, maybe I guess this reason is a bit valid. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 She's Committed to Her Dream

Well, she suddenly switched from becoming a Pokemon Showcase performer to a Pokemon Contest competitor (though that sounds like more of a pro than a con to me). Although, it still bothers me how she declared that she's still infatuated with Ash after going to pursue said dream. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She literally ditched Showcases for Contests. - Rue

4 She Really Cares About Her Pokemon

She really does care about her own Pokemon, unlike Paul who literally abuses his Pokemon

Yet you guys put him over her? - yungstirjoey666

5 She Learns from Her Mistakes

You mean cutting her hair just for losing one contest is learning from her mistakes? This isn't like how Satsuki Kiryuin from Kill la Kill changed and became a good guy when she cut her hair to symbolize her reformation in the OVA. Plus, cutting hair to symbolize change isn't really a thing in France. I'm saying that since Kalos is based off France. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 She Brings Out the Best in Others
7 She's the First New Female Protagonists Not Trying to Be Like Misty

Not really, to be honest. She's still into girly stuff like fashion. This may sound similar with Dawn, but at least she was a go-getter and was committed to being a Pokemon Coordinator. In addition, while Misty is admittedly overrated, she at least pursued a non-girly goal like becoming the Gym Leader of the Cerulean City Gym. So I don't think Serena is any better than Misty. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

How has any female lead ever tried to be Misty? - Rue

So what if Serena's goal is a bit too "feminine? "
All the other girls have some feminity on them. In fact, we had four tomboys. Not saying that's a bad thing, but it's a little nice to have someone feminine in the show for once. - yungstirjoey666

8 She Finds Ways to Better Her Performances

Like dressing up in a Fennekin and Florges outfit that made her look like a hoe? Now just to repeat, I'm not trying to make enemies with you or be a prick, but I'm just trying to argue in a civil manner as to why I don't like Serena. I respect your opinion on her, but just respect mine's back. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 She's a Really Good Friend

I wonder why she threw a tantrum and a bunch of snowballs at Ash Ketchum one time during a storm, yet I never heard about her regretting those actions and apologizing to him. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I don't think she was throwing a tantrum but rather, she was trying to get Ash out of his rut and to knock some sense if his depressed self. If I was her, I wouldn't regret my decision to getting Ash back to his old self. - Sentimental

She ignores Clemont, somewhat does the same for Bonnie, doesn't allow Shauna to be friends with Ash, and forces herself onto Ash to get closer to him instead of actually forming a proper one like all the other characters. - Rue

You guys are literally exxagerating
Sure she's a bit bland, but you're taking the hate way too seriously - yungstirjoey666

10 She's Very Supportive

I heard there was one time where Ash and Clemont were battling each other, but she was only cheering for Ash and not Clemont when she said that she was going to cheer for both. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 She's More Beautiful Than Any Other Pokemon Girl

Such a shallow reason to like a character - Chibipokemonmaster

What a massive lie. Prisses FTL! COME AT ME, JAMBAREEQI HATERS!

12 She doesn't complain like Misty does!
