I have a friend who was like this (His whole family was massive football fans and he only got into football at the age of 10, before he had no intrest in football, I am talking about British football BTW)

    And May probably felt preseured by her parents to get a Pokemon, she was probably worried that Norman would be dissapointed in her for not wanting a Pokemon.

    And just because the games didn't make contests a big part of the game dosen't mean the Anime has to as well (The Anime and games are diffrent cannon)
    Making Dawn and May do gym battles and have the same goal as Ash, would make the show even more repetative and boring. Contests were diffrent and intresting.

    What I meant about Dawn being a co star, is that she was the only companion to get as much development and focus as Ash.
    She was developed well past the basics, she went from someone who couldn't work out a map and get past an appeal round, to someone who only just lost a final and beat May.
    So Dawn was developed loads.

    Misty was practically no diffrent from the start of the series to the end) (except maybe nicer and less abusive in her cameo's.)
    All she did was compete in the Whirl cup, she did practically nothing else. She was horrible to Ash and abused him. She should of been arrested for assult.
    Misty could be labeled as a Tsundere but really she was someone with a massive inferiority complex who deeply cared about Pokemon and hated people who mistreated them(especially Water Pokemon). Misty berated Ash because he was immature and more often than not deserved it. Now while she didn’t really pursue her goal all that much(be it due to the writers or simply the fact that Ash’s goal took priority), she at least got a full team(unlike a future Misty 2.0 character in Iris).

    May wanted to see the world or go on an adventure and used the guise of getting her first Pokemon as a means to do it. If she could forego having Pokemon altogether and yet still see the world, she would have done it in a heartbeat. The fact she’s the daughter of a Gym Leader and had been exposed to Pokemon since birth makes that a bit hard to believe, especially if this character is your replacement for Misty. Kind of a botched introduction as I see it. She did have loads of character development though.

    As for Dawn, consider her to be a refined version of May. Everything about her was exceedingly well done, although it’s debatable about which Coordinator(May or Dawn) had the tougher rivals. Serena is the only character that I absolutely adore that honestly should have pursued battling the Gyms and entering the League as opposed to going into Pokemon Showcases(aka glorified Beauty/Talent shows that were exclusively Female...). It would have added a unique element and dilemma for Serena in that she would have had to balance love and Pokemon Training. The fact she flailed in the wind for 38 Episodes is why I have XY/XYZ in 2nd place on my Top series list(I don’t want it there but I’m all but forced due to how good DP was).

      Thanks for that defense of Misty. Put it far better than I can (and yes, many times Ash DID deserve the berating, certainly a lot more than Keitaru Urashima deserved any beatups by the Hinata Inn girls, and even the few times where Ash doesn't actually deserve it, you can at least understand the framework from where Misty got the conclusion that it was Ash's fault). Though I must admit, she's actually pretty tame for the tsundere characterization. I've seen more tsundere from Jessie to be honest. Not that I have a problem with it, because it at least means she's not Naru Narusegawa or even Bulma.

      And yeah, agreed with May (though I'd consider her "character development" cheap to be honest, mostly for what you stated regarding how she was introduced). To be honest, Serena did it slightly better than May. I may not be fond of her romance arc with Ash (especially when it really warped the fact that Ash was friends with Molly Hale, Misty, and Gary, and honestly came across as one-sided, something not even Pokeshipping, which I don't even follow, ever did), but at least it actually gave her a reason to travel with Ash, while May had zero reason to travel at all, let alone with Ash.

      Simply couldn't get into Dawn, though, but I'll admit she definitely was improved over May in a few areas (namely, at least she didn't hate Pokémon, and at least she actually had a firm goal to begin with).

                Her development was awesome and her contest journey was interesting and cool.

                    Dawn or Serena for me, although it is a hard choice.

                      Korrina I mean Dawn xD

                      Korrina might count, i duno.....does a 5 episode companion really count (to anyone other than me, who's like literally more obsessed with her than keeping both my lungs??)? o.O;; (the lungs thing, btw, is some inside joke of...mine....xD but you get the point i'm a korrina addict)

                      Still, yeah, Dawn is awesome too. I felt she had a good relationship with Ash as well.

                      And her contest outfits and Pokemon were both really adorable :3

                        Mine is Dawn. I liked her brilliant development and her determination and confidence.

                        She's creative, and her combinations and techniques for her Pokemon, could even help a much more experienced trainer or coordinator.

                        And I like her brilliant bond with Ash and it was great how her intensity matched Ash's.

                          MISTY is the best - its not even close. The others are just Misty wannabes...

                            "Best" is subjective since each girl had at least one big redeeming quality, but I'd pick Misty because she's the only female companion who has ever made me laugh out loud, which I almost never do these days while watching the anime.

                                Dawn is my favourite, because I like her development and her great personality and determination.

                                  I liked Dawn's development until around DP's last quarter when she was literally given two Pokemon in a row on a silver platter. Fans moan about Iris catching Dragonite whenever BW's flaws are discussed, yet no one bats an eye about the fact that half of Dawn's final team was composed of Pokemon that she didn't even catch herself.

                                    Depends on what you mean by best. Best female companion as in which female did the best for Ash? It probably would be Misty. Best female companion as in terms of being the show's heroine? In that case, it'd either be Dawn or May.
