Most certainly Misty. Do I even need to explain why Misty is my favorite again? xD My second favorite is Iria because I love it when she puts Ash down by calling him a little kid. I will love that forever. My third favorite is May because she's pretty funny and her temper makes me crack up. My least favorite is Dawn because I just don't like her. I don't think I ever liked her honestly.

Misty was the best companion Ash had on his travels. I just loved the friendship between those two. Also, Misty was just a great character with a lot of depth. Misty was the perfect female character for Ash tbh. Even if they were just friends.

      I say they should keep on holding Iris more in the sage because the other girls are like old memories for the anime

      Dawn, of course! She's so funny and cute and quirky, I loved every episode that had her in it. I guess I'm slightly biased because I love the Sinnoh region hands down above the others so anything set there would be more appealing, but I think Dawn really brought a refreshing character change to the show and was a great change from the nagging of Misty and the obviousness of May. Plus Dawn's team mimicked what I'd train pretty much Pokémon-for-Pokémon with one or two exceptions, so I can relate to her! I also love Iris, but she's not had as much time as Dawn yet so we'll see what happens.

                Well, I don't have a favorite. Every girl was unique. I think I'll choose Misty because of nostalgia but all were good!

                  DBZ fan's comment really breaks down why I thought Misty was the best.

                  Her fiery personality, dynamic with the group, intelligence, resourcefulness, and motherly tendencies (everything from her kindness, encouragement and even when she sometimes nags Ash and the others) makes her one of the most multi- layered characters I've seen in the anime.

                  A close second is May. Although Pokemon Contests annoyed me to bits and seemed unnecessary, I'm willing to overlook that in May's case because she went through one of the best developed character arcs I've seen in the anime. Contrary to what we see of her in the beginning, by the end of the Hoenn arc, she found a sense of purpose and independence and when it came to Max, she reminded me of Misty a lot. She really grew as a character (which is more than I can say for Reboot Ketchum.....err....I mean Ash).

                  I don't know why but everything about Dawn annoyed the hell out of me to the point where the Sinnoh arc took me the longest to watch. Iris, in the anime, is only slightly less annoying and seems to come off as incompetent.

                  Personally I think Dawn is the best female companion Ash had. She's not so unlike Ash that he'd find her particularly annoying. There are some particularly tender moments in the Sinnoh generation anime as well which makes me believe that there really WAS chemistry between them, particularly in the start of the journey. While Misty was great for her time, she was always way too mature for Ash. This kind of pushed her into a sort of "Older Sister" role...which doesn't do much for companionship, even if she did care abut him.

                      I prefer Misty to be with Ash... The other characters were also okay to me.

                        Did someone actually suggest Iris? She has to be one of the most annoying characters in whole series. She kept calling ash a kid despite all his world traveling and encounters with legendary pokemon. Plus her dragonite is a joke to all dragonites everwhere. C'mon, a pissed off, over the top dragon?
                        On another note, Misty has been the only friend that has bonded closer to Ash and Brock and Tracey.

                          I choose Hikari/Dawn. Haruka/May comes in a close second. But overall I like Hikari/Dawn more because she is other than being basically a female version of Satoshi/Ash, she's pretty and cute too.

                          Maaay! She's quirky and adorable. I loved her interactions with Ash and how close they'd gotten by the end of their travels. :3

                            I think Misty fit in very well with the group but my actual favourite was May, she just made me laugh the most and I loved her little quirks

                              I definitely like May the most because I think she was developed the best as a character. Also, her Pokemon had the best personalities IMO. I mean, most of Misty's pokemon were bland (Staryu, Starmie, Gyarados, Goldeen, Horsea) and Iris barely has any to begin with. However, I do hold Misty close to my heart because she herself had a great personality. My other reason for liking May is that she had a true goal whereas Misty did not and Iris' "Dragon Master" goal is just very poorly developed especially when half her team is non-dragon to begin with. Dawn is great too, but she wasn't around long enough and, therefore, didn't get as much development as the other three who got Orange Islands/ Johto, the Battle Frontier, and the Decolora Islands in addition to their respective home-regions.

                                  I'm totally old school, it will always be Misty for me. The perfect companion for Ash.
                                  They had quite a fiery relationship, ups and downs but they had a lot of chemistry. Their friendship grew and they became quite close as a result. Imo nobody could ever replace her. ♥

                                  Without being totally nostalgic about things, I genuinely think Misty was the best central female character to appear throughout the entire series. I just couldn't quite like May or Dawn (at least, what I saw of them) due to the relatively silly reason that they basically added filler episodes by participating in contests and whatnot. Frankly I did not give a CRAP about contests, and so I couldn't respect their desires and aspirations. Misty generally was an interesting character without annoying me by generally creating needless extra episodes.

                                  I know that there are generally DOZENS of episodes in any given series of Pokémon and I acknowledge that Misty had her share of episodes devoted to her that didn't necessarily add much to the plot of 'get the badges, get to the League!', however I just think she at least trumps May and Dawn as a trainer and as a character.

                                  I can't speak much for Iris as I've seen very little of Best Wishes, but I have a feeling she'd take second place before May and Dawn, anyway.

                                    The best girl to travel with Ash is definitely Misty. A competitive gym leader as a battling partner would suit Ash better than coordinators May and Dawn. Iris may be a Dragon trainer but I would say she is still young and not as skilled as Misty. I may be biased in my opinion as I have watched Pokémon ever since I was a little kid so I really miss her in the anime. I understand that the personalities of the other girls are quite similar but I doubt they could ever replace Misty.

                                      Probably May or Iris. Misty didn't do much in the series after a while and she hardly battled.

                                        Misty. She and Ash had some chemistry, friend and opponent wise.
