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.

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.

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?

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.
“You see, love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says I love you, I love you if you’re in China, I love you if you’re across town, I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you, I’d like to have your arms around me, I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now. So, I love you. Go.”

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?
95% of all Pokémon hacks are of the 3rd Generation, majority of them being FireRed.
If you believe that the 2nd generation should be hacked more often,
copy and paste this into your signature

Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.

“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love. By returning, you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed, fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, then we say good-bye for the present.”

"Harry--you're a great wizard, you know."
"I'm not as good as you," said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let him go.
"Me!" said Hermione. "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things--friendship and bravery and--oh Harry--be careful!"

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

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.
