View Full Version : Favourite Character?

June 25th, 2012, 10:07 AM
I'm surprised this topic doesn't exist tbh.

Who is your favourite character, and why?

1 from each region if you can't decide. :D

Mine is, hands down, Bianca. ;o; I've just watched the Chargestone Cave episode and it reminded me why I love her so much. BIANCA SPIN OFF PLS.

Has to be Richie, he was amazing! I also loved Vincent from the Legend of Thunder :D

June 27th, 2012, 10:13 AM
Really? No favorite character thread O.o? Well I have several favorites actually. Meowth up until battle frontier was simply the best. He got all the amazing gag lines and the dub voice, Madeline Blaustein did the role perfectly! James and Brock are also both funny and awesome in their own ways, but again, before most of the new seasons. Finally there is Misty, who was always fighting with Ash and blaming him for getting lost (again!) but then having many moments where she would act mature and super nice to everyone. She was always the best female on the show IMO!

I've always liked Team Rocket's quirky personalities, and the dub makes them even better.

And then there's Magikarp Salesman. He's pops up in random places and always screws with them.

Brock was cool until DP, where he was completely ignored. It makes me question why they even bothered including him.

My favourite character is Misty, after she left the show started to become annoying for me. I also love May, but, it'll never the same than how it was in the first seasons, with Misty ... I miss the Pokéshipping scenes, her grumpiness, her personnality... Her, Ash and Brock were the best trio, really. Even if Ash and Brock stayed together a long time, someone was missing.

June 29th, 2012, 8:27 AM
Kanto: Pikachu
Orange Isles: Tracey
Johto: Misty
Hoenn: May
Frontier: May
Sinnoh: The short time May was in it.
Unova: Bianca

Over all my favorite character is May.

June 29th, 2012, 6:00 PM
Dawn is my favorite character! :)
She is so cute and I love her bubbly and cute personality, plus I love her story and character development.

June 29th, 2012, 7:37 PM
Gary hands down. I love his cocky attitude, his in your face style. He was just that guy as a kid that humored me cause he was annoying and I found his annoyance to Ash funny and appealing(probably cause I was annoying as a kid as well xD). Gary kind of mellowed out though, but still I found him an admirable character cause it seems he has found his calling as a Researcher and is actually accomplishing stuff.

Cilan!<3 He is my most favorite character out of them all. He is sexy, classy, and his personality is so smooth. Though I would prefer him with a dark side. Some unexpected event in which he becomes evil xD

@SST: He became evil in Luke's movies :D

This question is really hard for me to answer since I've taken a big liking to the current group :D
Can I say Meloetta? xD
Nah, I'm joking, my all time favorite characters are Satoshi and Haruka but as I said I love the current group and current rivals :D Langrey is really awesome :D
Iris is probably my second favorite female companion, she's totally cute in her wild personality :D
Dent is by a whole my favorite male Satoshi's companion, I love his "It's tasting time!" :D And his talks are brilliant :D

I simply love almost every character is Pokémon :D And I must mention female Gym Leaders of Isshu. Elesa, Skyla and Homika are the reasons why Isshu Gym Leaders are my overall favorite :D

June 30th, 2012, 1:03 AM
Team Rocket's Trio - especially James. Always make me laugh at every failed attempt at capturing Pikachu and many others, and all the crazy machines/robots they used and always turn out bad.

Can I pick from various languages anime was dubbed in? - I love Meowth's voice in the Japanese (ending almost everything with "nya" Jap. equivalent of Meow) and the Spanish (Latin American - Gerardo Vasquez voice sounded strange at first, but now gotten used to it, I use it as my sound receiving text messages) versions. Same with James (for Spanish version that is).

July 7th, 2012, 9:19 PM
This is hard to decide, but i'll go with Pikachu for the first season (if he counts as a character)
Then i think it'l probably be Ash for the rest until Diamond and Pearl where i think Paul is really cool.
My favorite female character would definitely be Iris. (I have personal reasons) followed up by Dawn. I don't like the way Misty never supported Ash at all and it would be hell for him if they stayed for the rest of his journey much less marry.

July 7th, 2012, 9:29 PM
Cilan. He makes puns about food and wears his butler uniform everywhere. And his erratic gestures! He's just a wonderful character who actually manages to make me laugh.

July 8th, 2012, 11:57 AM
Dent is my favorite character. No doubt. His personality just makes the Anime and Games so addicting.:cer_wink:

July 9th, 2012, 8:59 PM
Ive always liked Brock. Its hilarious how he always gets rejected by the ladies.

July 12th, 2012, 4:26 AM
My favorite Pokémon is smeargle he’s a strange character but I liked him when the first time I saw in the episode.

July 12th, 2012, 8:14 AM
Simple and nice topic which I still don't believe didn't exist o_o

Anyway here:
Kanto/Orange Islands/Johto: I could choose a Pokemon right? If so, then it's Charizard. Didn't like much out of Kanto...possibly Ritchie would be the best.

Hoenn: Harely-May ...just for the lols.

Sinnoh: Dawn! Cynthia!!

B/W: Cilan, nothing comes close to this awesome dude for me.

However, in general, my favorite characters of all time are probably Team Rocket (non-B/W) and possibly Brock. I tend to lean to the funny characters :\ Besides, Team Rocket are so lovable :D in a stupid way.

July 12th, 2012, 3:43 PM
Cynthia, no contest. She's just so funny to watch watch still managing to be incredibly strong and the whole thing just makes for a hilarious set up. I'll never forget the moments she's trying to choose an ice cream flavor in DP; she's just the best haha. I also adore Dawn though; she's so upbeat and fun! ♥

July 12th, 2012, 3:48 PM
Morty, because his Gengar is wicked!

July 13th, 2012, 8:51 AM
Always been a Rocket fan. They were my favourites for years! <3

I love all the girls. I can't stand pitting them against one another. They all have their own strengths and weaknesses. Haruka/May and Dawn/Hikari might get a slight edge over poor Kasumi/Misty, if only because they had more focus during the series, as opposed to Kasumi, who mostly got her development (past the earlier episodes) in the hoso specials!

Kasumi had a funner personality, though, because I really love tomboyish girls. Hikari/Dawn was girly, bubbly, and clever, though, so she was undoubtedly fun, but Haruka/May was more like me in that she was naive and clumsy (well, in the beginning)... and a BIG eater. xD

Iris is a LOT of fun too! She's more like the tomboyish Kasumi, so I love that, and how agile she is~! And I'm biased in favour of dragons, so~ <3333

She's so adorable and funny too. I love how she butts heads with Dent/Cilan.

As for the guys, Dent is the funniest protagonist. All this "_____ time!" and tasting things and his vocabulary and fabulousness...! xDD

Shinji/Paul was my favourite rival. Just so epic. I loved how different he was compared to Satoshi. His brother's always a very interesting contrast.

As for less common characters, Shirona/Cynthia, without a doubt! ^_^ She's so awesome and confident... and inspiring! I love how gentle and adorably bubbly and easily confused (always cool and composed in battle! Outside of battle, what are decision-making skills, really?) she can be too. She's so powerful and amusing.

July 15th, 2012, 3:13 PM
I've always liked Misty. Her tomboyish personality was just funny, and the way that she got all angry up in Ash's face, makes he ROFL every time. ^.^

Also rather like Cilan, for some reason. I guess it just makes me giggle when he starts comparing Pokemon to food and all that, and when he gets over protective, of a spoon!

July 16th, 2012, 3:56 AM
One of my favorite characters is May. She's pretty and she has had good character development throughout the Advanced generation. My absolute favorite is Ash; I like how he puts his mind to something and never gives up.

July 16th, 2012, 4:45 AM
I haven't seen much if the new anime but Iris is funny with her Axew :). But Ash and Brock are my favourites xD

July 17th, 2012, 8:44 AM
Kanto/Orange Islands - Brock, I like the way he treated his Pokemon and I liked his team.

Johto - I don't really have a favourite character for this series.

Hoenn/Frontier - Max, it was nice to see him grow as he travelled with the group.

Sinnoh - Zoey, she was too smart to not win. And she was cool but also a nice person.

Unova - Trip, I just think he is the guy who I would be like the most. Trining up strong Pokemon whilst learning the basics before progressing and learning from my mistakes. I also the way he hands out respect like to Cilan he shows respect because Cilan is mature and analytical whereas Ash is just some kid who lucks out.

The whole series - James. He is probably one of the best trainers in the series we just don't get to see it. He is smart and caring but he can also battle well when he wants to.

If he competed in the league in the next region using all the pokemon he can retrieve from his past then I imagine he could get far. Imagine his possible team if they evolved whilst he was challenging gyms; Chimecho, Arcanine, Cacturne, Carnivine, Mr Mime, Cofagrigus. That is quite a team to go up against and with James in charge they could do well in the league conference. I would love for that to happen.

July 19th, 2012, 11:39 AM
I think consistently through the series, Jessie has made me laugh the most, I just love that she has so many sides to her character plus I always thought her outfit was super cool lol :D

July 20th, 2012, 10:54 PM
My fave characters:

Dawn - I loved her development and the cute outfits she wears in contests. I loved her so much she inspired my username.

Cilan - He makes me laugh at lot in the Unova saga and he has an iconic Japanese voice (Mamoru Miyano, who also voices one of my fave non-Pokemon anime characters).

May - She uses some pretty cool Pokemon, I love her Glaceon especially. Not to mention my hair is the same color as hers.

Iris - I guess I'm one of the few who doesn't find her annoying. She's pretty tough and I love her Emolga and Excadrill.

Jessie, James & Meowth - I love how funny they are, even though the Unova saga toned down their comedic personality. Meowth's voice is so funny.

Bianca - She's really cute and hilarious, but she's also very tough.

Paul - My fave of the Sinnoh rivals, he uses strong Pokemon and I love his voice, it's very enthusiastic.

Zoey - My fave of Dawn's rivals, and I like how she's a tomboy compared to most of the main girls.

Barry - Again, love him cos he's funny. I also love how most of his Pokemon are based on his in-game team.

July 21st, 2012, 7:23 PM
Here are my faves:

Ash - The BEST Protagonist ever and he is so cute with his Pikachu!

Bianca - So clumsy and cute! She is always hyperactive.

Barry - Yep. Bianca and Barry are so related, not really. Also, Hyperactive.


Dawn - The Girl I Really Admire!

Paul - ...hmph... Thats All I Have for Him

Stephan - Much like Butch from Team Rocket cuz other people didn't pronounce his name right.

The fave characters from Game that appear in one or couple episodes:
Flint (E4), Volkner, Aaron (Both Movie 8 and Sinnoh E4), Alder, Byron, Roark, Wake, Elesa, Lt. Surge and Ranger Ben.

The Fave Characters of the Day:
AJ, Samurai, Sho (DP074), Glenn (BW067), Narissa.

Info on Pokemon Characters:

Flint - Tough and Hard-Hitting with an Afro. He is also friends with Wild Bouffalant lol.
Volkner - One an Emo Dude, Now a brave Sunyshore representative
AJ - Like his voice, as opposed to Meowth lol.
Narissa - She is sure of herself and keeps her head in the game by admiring Flint.
Alder - He helped me enjoy life!
Roark - Dunno.
Byron - A digging enthusiast and he's 40!
Elesa and Wake used to be my favorite Leaders. Although Elesa and Volkner (Denkami) is implied.
Aaron - Yep. Girls think he's H4WT!!! Wish he has Scolipede and Galvantula
Ranger Ben - I like him of his optimistic ways, much like cilan.
Jack Walker - 2nd favorite Ranger.
Attila - Very tough and the coolest badass ever.
Glenn - Looks like Beyblade Blader DJ.
Sho - His street slang is awesome and specializes in Electric Types like Volkner, Elesa and Surge.

So this is why I chose Ash becaue of his Pikachu. ELECTRIC TYPES.
Although I like Piplup and Oshawott.

July 23rd, 2012, 3:22 PM
I also adore Jimmy and his Typhlosion - it's like my perfect version of Ash and Pikachu haha :)

July 23rd, 2012, 9:02 PM
Oh and Favorite Movie Character besides Jackie?


July 30th, 2012, 10:56 AM
Gary motherf****** oak! :3

July 30th, 2012, 12:10 PM
My favorite character is Lance. He is so cool!

July 31st, 2012, 12:31 AM
My favorite character is Dawn. She's so cute. (Yes, I'm of the masculine gender and I like Dawn. Any problem with that? o.O Ahihihihi.)

July 31st, 2012, 2:54 AM
Out of the entire show my favorite character has got to be James. He's funny and surprisingly strong when motivated, unfortunately he's not motivated very often. Poor guy. But he's also quite a complex character, even he seems confused about where he should draw the line when committing criminal deeds.
Plus the eternal question..... is he gay?

July 31st, 2012, 5:48 AM
Without a doubt Richie! (Or Ritchie whichever one) He is just the best and it is a huge shame the he appears in about 5 episodes altogether :(

July 31st, 2012, 8:17 AM
My favorite character is Lance.

July 31st, 2012, 9:54 AM
ash, brock and misty - the best !!

August 1st, 2012, 2:26 AM
Gary Oak is my favorite, who else? I despise Ash Ketchum with a passion. I do not like his whiny ass. Gary, on the other hand, is such a snarky character. I love him. "Gary was here. Ash is a loser!" is the funniest thing I've seen on a cartoon. >:] I just wish Gary were in more episodes. It's maddening.
And I've always loved Team Rocket too [especially James]. He's a goof. I love him. And dat blue hair! x)

August 5th, 2012, 4:02 AM
I really do not understand the huge hype with Cilan, i find him quite annoying but what ever floats your boat.

My favorite character would have to be........ Wow Its a lot harder than i thought it would be to answer this question. I started typing with a clear answer in my head and as soon as i was about to type it i had my doubts.

My favorite character would have to be Jessie or Ash, like the poster above Jessie has given me the most comical relief and i also like the main character.

August 6th, 2012, 4:00 PM
Kanto: Gary Oak - I just love his cocky attitude.

Johto: Brock - I was happy when he returned

Hoenn: May - she is by far my favorite female character.

Sinnoh: Barry -its funny when he always bumps into everyone.

Unova: Trip - I like him because he reminds me of a mix of paul and gary.

August 6th, 2012, 6:08 PM
Paul is my favorite character. He has a wonderful personality and a unique training style, which has landed him into some trouble, but he is a different character from what the anime typically provides. Ash didn't consider him as a friendly rival; in fact, it was more like they were enemies. Either way, Paul made Ash want to train better. His personality does give him a bad reputation with just about everybody in the fandom, but I liked it. It was cold, ruthless, and almost mean. Still, he was smart and knew how to battle along with coming up with a variety of strategies. His training tactics were also pretty dang good, especially with him nearly forcing Chimchar to evolve, although that didn't work at all. I thought it was creative.

He pushed his Pokemon to limits they probably never dreamed about, but most of them pulled through anyway. I liked the rivalry he had with Ash as well as his character development in the anime, which is a novelty within itself. He developed from being an ass to a nicer ass. That's why I love him.

October 8th, 2012, 7:25 PM
Out of the main and secondary characters, I like everyone. Well, except for Shigeru and Shinji, I hate them.

I like Satoshi because he's always such a derp. Kasumi is entertaining too, espcially when she yells at Satoshi. Takeshi's obsession with women is always funny. As for Haruka and Hikari, while they aren't as funny as Kasumi, they are very nice, and I really like their singing (well, okay, I like everyone's singing, but that's besides the point). Iris is pretty unique due to her being adventerous. As for Dent, he's cool, but he says 'taste' a little too much, I love his design though.

Um, who haven't I covered.... well, there's Masato. I haven't seen enough Advance Generation to really form a good opinion on him. I was able to get a better opinion on his sister, Haruka because she talks more. Then there's Kenji, who's cool, since well, he draws and I do too. Then Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu are entertaining to watch, and I like the backstories they gave them.

Oh, crap, forgot about Kosaburo and Yamato. Well, Yamato is just a jerk, I don't like her. As for Kosaburo, he's cool I guess.

All in all, I can't decide, all I know is I hate Shigeru and Shinji, so definatly not them.

October 8th, 2012, 9:00 PM
Mine is Misty. Not only did she add some humor and flavor to the show, her obvious feelings for Ash added a further layer of dynamic; her pulling Brock's ear was a funny recurring gag that lost its touch when she left. Really, after Misty left, the anime fell to pieces because there wasn't the same character dynamic. Misty added so much that May and Max didn't; though May had good development as far as the anime goes, she didn't bring the same compatibility to the table.

I also am fond of Rocket-dan at some points; they have story to them, but once Hoenn hit they threw that all out and instead focused on redundancy in every freakin' episode.

Original series for life.

October 9th, 2012, 2:36 AM
James no doubt about it; he's hilarious, and I love his laugh. I love his feelings towards Pokemon, and I could never take him nearly as evil as Ash and co. might think he is. Just overall, he's the one character that has not bothered me a single time and I enjoy his presence the most (except when TR ruins a gym battle or something).

October 16th, 2012, 7:10 PM
Homika, hands down. I refuse to call her Roxie, tho.
I just love the fact that she likes poison-types like I do, and she has white hair in a young age. I don't know, but I like people with white hair, probably because white is my favorite color. I also love her rocker personality.

December 31st, 2012, 5:25 AM
My favorite character is Marlon, Ranger Ben, and of course... Me: The one and only Cameron from the Unova Region!

January 17th, 2013, 5:10 PM
i would actually have to say....LATIAS!!! Alto-Shipping FOREVER!!!!! if they could have moments where Ash actually GOES BACK to Altomare and SEES Latias, i would be VERY happy. i FIRMLY believe Ash loves Latias, and vice versa. Ash can have a vacation, right? so why not take it in Altomare? Latias would be OVERJOYED. after all, Ash DID say he'd play with her again, but he never got the chance to. Latias needs someone (Ash) to take her mind off her brother. i STILL believe Latios is ALWAYS on her mind. after all, if someone you loved died, wouldn't you be thinking about them night and day?

January 19th, 2013, 6:47 PM
May. She's cute and it was fun watching her in contests. It was probably because May was the travelling companion with Ash when I first watched the series. It was interesting to see her start from an inexperienced, Pokephobic trainer from a great coordinator. Her character development was the best in the series imo. Dawn's also cool, I don't know what, but something makes me like her. Misty is great too, since she was also part of my childhood (I think Dawn was too, idk) and she was really funny. Though, May remains my favourite. Non-protagonist wise, it would definitely be Team Rocket. <3

February 9th, 2013, 3:12 PM
My favorites:

Kanto: Lorelei by far.
Johto: I like Morty, especially after his retooling in HGSS. I always liked Jasmine too. Recently, I've been feeling a soft spot for Pryce.
Hoenn: Winona is my favorite of the Gym Leaders. Steven is my favorite overall - I like how helpful he is to the player.
Sinnoh: I really like Aaron despite his type of choice not being my thing. I also love Cynthia. As for Gym Leaders, I like Roark, Fantina, and Byron. I'm probably the only one who likes Byron.
Unova: Probably Grimsley. I love Cress too. I also like Elesa, Lenora, and Caitlin. I also kinda like Marlon. And for the first time, I love the protagonist characters.
