Misty is my all time favourite. She was the funniest of them all, and also Ash's best friend.
She has shown herself to be a really dependable character in times of trouble like when everyone is stuck in St. Anne at the bottom of the sea, when the giant Tentacruel is destroying the city, when Ash and the others are in jail and she (along with Pikachu) gets them out, when Team Rocket attack her Gym in the middle of the ballet show, when Ash and Tracey are sick due to inhaling Stun Spore, etc...
She's also a great Pokemon trainer.

Misty for sure. She was the only one willing to slap some sense into that overly peppy Ash. May is a very close second though. Dawn is meh, she didn't seem to have as much personality as the other two.

Misty was the best for true. She had a great personality and she was more mature then May and Dawn put together, Iris comes in second place for being cool and mature, May comes in 3rd for having a little bit of a great personality and battling in pokemon contests, Dawn comes in 4th place because she just plain out had no personality and she was just annoying as hell..

Misty wins for being the best number 1 girl on the entire show.

Totally Misty! She had a great personality and often brought Ash and Brock down to Earth, but was also a valuable and endearing friend to them. A good character in Pokemon is one who dreams big, can display many kinds of emotions, and most importantly, connects well with the other members of the group. I'd say Misty fits that description pretty darn well!

I wish this topic had a poll, so I could view who's the most popular most quickly.

I believe the best girl companion was Dawn. Both May and Dawn were improvements from Misty, because they actively had goals, just like Ash. The way Misty became friends with Ash, however, was the most creative and meaningful. I think Misty would be the best to ship with Ash, yet that's not what makes her the best companion.

Whereas May's coordinator experience was a straightforward approach contests, which were eerily similar to trainer battles, Dawn's experience had more focus on making the pokemon shine, and finding ways to make their moves flashy. I felt as though May was held back by Max, because a large part of her character was showing how she was a good older sister figure. With Dawn, she goofed around and made mistakes a lot. Having Piplup as a humorous companion was so successful that this role carried on to Ash's Oshawott.

Iris is my favorite gymleader, and I like her video game character much more than Dawn. Yet unbiasedly, I felt as though Iris was a step back, because her goals of becoming a dragon master was focused in much fewer episodes. One improvement of Iris was how she was a jungle-raised girl, and how she was (slightly) less clichély girly.

I haven't watched much of BW so I have no major opinion on Iris. Misty May and Dawn were all good though.

It's a tie between May and Dawn for me. Least favorite is Iris, couldn't stand her constantly calling Ash a "kid"(newsflash missy, you're a kid too!), it wasn't funny, it just made her sound jerkish.

May. I loved her character, she seemed like a perfect fit for Ash.
For funniest, I would say Misty.
Best trainer is hard to determine since 2 of them are coordinators and the other 2 stick to just one type of pokemon.

May was (quite arguably) the best girl companion in the anime. Dawn was second best in my opinion. Why? Both were Contest trainers, influencing Ash's arsenal of tactics in his own battles. They also seemed (slightly) compatible with Ash, while Iris always calls him a kid (annoying after the first couple of times, btw). And what about Misty, you may ask? I haven't watched much of the original series so I can't make a statement about her and Ash. (I would've been 2-7 years of age when the first 5 seasons aired, and I don't have the time to watch a majority of the 250-something episodes that comprise it)

Definitely May. I thought the way her outlook on Pokémon changed when she met Ash was awesome. Not to mention the motherly role she played when she took care of Max. I think May is the character that matured the most throughout her time with Ash. Her and Ash made a great team AdvanceShipping FTW and helped each other to become better in their respective competitions.

Misty was awesome too, but she was already matured to the point where there wasn't a whole lot of growing up for her to do. She's a close second, but didn't have the growth that May did throughout her journey.

Dawn was alright. She seemed kind of static to me and wasn't very funny or interesting. Also the "No need to worry", followed by some mistake got old pretty quickly as well. I didn't watch a whole lot of D/P so it's hard to judge.

I wanted to throw Iris off of a bridge after she said "You're such a kid!" for the 10th episode in a row. I heard she stopped saying that all the time, so maybe I'll go back and watch some more of B/W. Maybe.

I'm not at all sure what you're referring to, ExtremeGamer. This is a thread asking which main girl was the best in your eyes. I don't see how May "having" Drew makes her a less valid choice than Misty as best girl companion.

Misty all the way. My first fictional crush as a kid, the probable beginning of my attraction to redheads xD She's tough and cute and athletic. I just like everything about her.

Having said all this, Misty is the only one I've followed from start to finish. Partly from growing up, partly from hating the voice-cast change, partly from growing tired of the endless quest for the same damn goal.

I'll comment on the other girls though.
May: Love her design, and from what I've seen of her in the show, she seems like a bit of a badass at times. Probably my second favourite.
Dawn: My least favourite. I don't like her design at all, her voice grates on me, ugh, I just don't like her.
Iris: My least favourite after Dawn. I like her in the games, and I like her design enough, she just irritates me in the show.

Misty. But only because she uses Starmie. & I use Starmie because it kicks ass.

Like, How many water Pokemon can you name that can use moves like ThunderBolt.. Psychic.. Flash Cannon.. Grass Knot.

Not
Ash and (Insert female main character) are traveling together because one wants to become Pokemon master but he always fails so we are adding a female character that reaches the top while Ash is makng more money for us in a new region

May, Dawn and Iris are tools for the fans to see someone have sucses and a well character devolepment and Ash just losing everything and keeps traveling to fail

Thats why I liked Misty she gave me the feeling that Ash would ever become a Pokemon master aslong as she isn't traveling with Ash he won't become a master..


You are so right. I'm hoping the next girl is more experienced than ash, and maybe even a gym leader.

I guess Misty !
It was because the Anime was more focus on Her Role rather then her goal .
That why She manage to create the appeal that no other girl couldn't create !
