Misty: Misty is my favourite character joint with someone else. I think it's because she is original, she is also hot tempered. And like pokemon fan 132 said, she has saved so many lives and she has obtained many achievements.
Dawn: Dawn is my other favourite character joint with Misty. I like Dawn because I think she acts like a girl in the pokemon world would, the whole hair problems, etc. Plus she is a beginner and it's likely that she wouldn't get through the appeals rounds all the time, unlike May who made it through all of them? Which is one of the reasons why I hate her and her bratty brother, but back to Dawn. Plus I liked the fact that she actually acts like a 10 year old would when they lose a competition. Dawn also is like Ash, she has played a major part in anime since she appeared and I will be sad to see her go, but part of me thinks she will be staying because she has had a huge part in the anime, much bigger than Misty/May.
Ash: Well let's face it, you have to like Ash. He's the hero and all. Plus usaully he gets the pokemon I would like (Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Turtwig, Snorlax, etc)
Brock: Like Misty he's original, he has been in the anime for so long, without him it's just not the same. Take a look at the OI series, it's just not as good without him, filrting with the girls and helping poor pokemon, looking after the group, doing the cooking. Also I really like it how Brock filrts with girls in Sinnoh where it switches to a lot of detail.
