Top 10 Ways that Serena from the Pokemon Anime Could've Been a Much Better Character

You know I hate Serena's character, but how would I feel that she would be a better character and not be as bad in my opinion? Well...

The Top Ten

1 Drop the Amourshipping bait

This Amourshipping thing has destroyed has character. (These words might seem caring towards her but I do hate her a lot, more because she's boring as hell and her character's got no depth and complexity.)
And besides, Amourshipping is pure trash. It's forced, unnatural, boring and one sided.
The main question is - where's the chemistry?
Ans. - Nowhere
She never points out his flaws and has his heroic image in her mind. Neither they tease each other.
They just be nicey nice to each other. And since she never fights with him (again due to her stupid crush) he also don't pay much attention to her
Everything about her, from her crush to her dream is so fake and unpractical
She got nothing to do with Pokemon. Just show off herself by wearing pretty dresses
However, she's practically the same case as Brianna from AG series. Here she gets a chance to travel with Drew in form of Ash which would never actually happen to her. Of course.

Serena's character is boring and relies too much on her interactions with Ash to be interesting. And it wasn't like her interactions with Ash were important to her character.
Dawn, for example, not only didn't need to rely on Ash to have an important role in the show, but when she did interact with Ash it was actually good for her development. She's honestly the only companion EVER who is on an equal level with Ash in terms of importance and relevance.
In no way, shape, or form does Serena's crush on Ash help her grow as a trainer or as a person. Amourshipping was just created for fanservice and used as a way to bring old fans of the show back after the BW anime series failed. Pokeshipping, Advanceshipping, Pearlshipping, and even Aureliashipping are all much better ships because the girls in those relationships all learn from Ash while traveling with him.
I would say more, but this would be too long.
TLDR; Amourshipping does not benefit Serena or Ash in any way. - dels

She was only created just so Ash would have a girlfriend, which is pretty pointless, because we have tons of better characters such as Dawn, May or Misty to fill that gap. - TwilightKitsune

Yes, please do. Sadly even if Serena didn't have a crush on Ash and had a bit or no goal, then Amourshipping would still be a thing. I don't know. I guess this shipping shows how much people who ship Ash with a PokéGirl makes us think that the region shipping SHOULDN'T be a thing.

2 Have her goal be more about Pokemon than herself
3 Have her contribute more to the group

During the epic showdown with Ash, Alan, Diantha and the Kalos Gym Leaders including Clemont trying save Kalos and the world from the thing I forgot what it was and Serena literally does nothing but stand their on the sidelines along with Marin, and Bonnie, if it were Misty, Dawn, May or Iris they would have helped them try to stop it. - egnomac

Meh, too late. - TwilightKitsune

4 Have her get a goal and development much earlier in the series
5 Have her be a warrior
6 Have Serena develop a crush on Ash much later on in the series or drop it altogether

Ugh, please no. No crush on Ash, thank you. Even after her crush on Ash pissed us off, it's something she shouldn't have even if it's early or later in the series. I suggest to drop it all together.

7 Have her pay a lot more attention to Clemont and Bonnie

All it was was Ash, Ash and Ash with a little bit of Bonnie action.

She nearly ignored Clemont.

8 Have her have a better reason to cut her hair and change her appearance or drop it all together
9 Not have her be a walking stereotype

Nothing bad about being girly, it's just the way Serena says girls should always appear to look *pretty* and dedicate her life around a boy I find very stupid.

10 If Serena did not kiss him and just walk away and just say goodbye on the final episode

Ash you could of just push serena away or just tell her not to kiss her come on you ten year old ash

If Ash pushed her away, she might've fallen down the escalator lol - BDOG375

As memorable as the kiss was it was completely forced and people take it as Amourshipping being canon which is of course false because if it was Ash would have kissed her back but he doesn't he just kind of stands their awkwardly like most boys his age would be confused. - egnomac

That kiss was just stupid. Like, she just HAD to do it before she said goodbye with her desperate self. Ash didn't even acknowledge it.

Yes and the would be good

11 Make her goal as a sky trainer like her manga counterpart from pokemon adventures manga

Guys you should check out her manga counterpart. It's better than game serena and anime serena.

12 Not have her defined by Ash and constantly cater to him
13 Have her interact with her Pokemon more often
14 Have Her Abducted and Dissected by Aliens

Yes I agree
and never ever let her come back

15 Make her able to handle hard stuff rather than force guys to be in love with her
