If there was a character you could safely call a "favourite", or one you would say is the best character in the anime, who would it be, and why? What do they add to the show to make it more enjoyable for you? Feel free to discuss!

Probably Lillie for me. She's shy but also strong-willed and eager to do her best. Her design is cute (bonus!) and she's got an interesting family as well as a good backstory. not to mention...



that ice cold gaze (poor mamane)

    Man... this is a toughie. Yet I'll have to go with Serena on this one. Owns Sylveon, had crush on main protagonist(wherein she kissed said protagonist), had memorable Episodes with Miette(also Shauna in XY89) and has tons of room to grow seeing as she still has three spots open on her team.

    May and Dawn deserve some recognition though.

        I think Acerola has her beat on the gaze.

          Paul, from way back in Gen 4. He's a really cool rival that was very well written.
          In fact, I'd say he's the best rival so far-- and I don't think that's an unpopular opinion.

            Ha, I am completely biased and choose Serena. I could explain, but i'll just leave it with that.

              Paul for sure,he brought a dark and serious tone to the anime in the DP series,power obsessed trainer who would do anything to win in battles and expect his pokemon to be top notch.Majority of his pokemon are powerhouses/tanks that have status moves/abilities.

              His attitude and methods forced Ash to become a better trainer/battler especially since he kept losing to Paul before the league.He's the greatest rival ever in the pokemon anime and the best battler in the entire pokemon anime.

                There're so many good characters that I like, but I'll go with Misty for now since she actually stood up for herself on a regular basis, she was a decent battler, and I liked her team in Kanto. Sadly, even she had flaws like her violent outbursts in early OS, and the fact that she became a prop starting in Johto.

                  Dawn is my favourite, because her development was the best out of any character and she was very determined and never gave up, even when times were tough, and she was always willing to try something new. Dawn is my girlfriend's favourite character as well.

                    When it comes to main characters, I guess Dawn. Dawn was really neat. :3 If it counts towards this thread, too, though, Korrina is my absolute MOST favorite and her arc was soooo cool to me! :3 x3; and i have a crush on her...o///o;

                    Misty. She served an important purpose of calling Ash's stupidity out which was a key part in the show actually being somewhat enjoyable. Honorable mention to Iris for the same reason.

                    Also Cilan was much better than Brock. That being in love with every female 'character of the day' shtick got old very fast and I appreciated Cilan's upbeat enthusiastic and friendly attitude. The Best Wishes trio had good chemistry together.

                    Bonnie is my favorite. She's so cute! It's actually her strength and determination that really make me adore her though!

                    Spoiler:


                    This is what really made me adore so much. Her strength and determination, even while her best friend is tearing apart her world... and she is still determined to save it.

                    For me it has always been James ever since I started watching Pokemon way back when. I don't know what it is that drew me to him. I think its because he tries to be a bad guy but doesn't really work. He has to much of a heart to be evil.

                    Casually reviving this because I was going to make the same thread then decided to look first lmao.

                    Mine is Ash (as if that wasn't obvious). I could go on as to why I love the kid that many people seem to dislike (and yet still watch the anime??) but his courage, spirit, and his bonds with both pokemon and humans alike are just a few things as to why haha.

                    Other than Ash it's mm... hard to say. Cilan probably if I had to be honest. Though Kiawe might actually beat out Cilan for me as I've been reaaally enjoying his character in Sun/Moon.

                      Paul, Dawn and Serena for me.

                      These characters were all greatly developed and interesting.

                          For companions, I'd have to think it over.

                          For mons, I'd say the following by series.
                          Gen 1: Bulbasaur
                          Gen 2: Heracross
                          Gen 3: Sceptile
                          Gen 4: Torterra, Buizel, or Gliscore
                          Gen 5: TEPIG!!!!
                          Gen 6: Hawlucha
                          Gen 7: Litten so far
