I guess until BW it was James. And now it's Cilan....... and Trip is cool......
1. Ash-awesome, stategical, lovable idiot, cairng and kind toward all of his friends
2. Dawn- female version of Ash plus she has really awesome contests
3. Brock-Big brother figure. Great cook, intelligent, plus he's been in the series almost as long as Ash has.
Check out my original story: Forbidden Book
A Saga of pain, love, and revenge
I think Pokémon have enough personality to count as characters. So I'd say Ash's Squirtle! He was just so awesome, he had sunglasses, a cool attitude, and moments where he was adorable as well. Squirtle is my favorite Pokémon... And Ash's Squirtle is my favorite character... Surprise, surprise. XD
As for human characters, my favorite would definitely be May. I dunno, she to me was just a lot more likable than Misty, she had some great moments and at the time had a unique goal of wanting to be Top Coordinator, which I liked, whereas Misty just seemed to be... There. I prefer her over Dawn cause she seemed to have a nice balanced out personality and Dawn seemed kinda girly-stereotypical, at least to me. Haven't seen much of Best Wishes so I can't judge Iris much, but from what I have seen, I like May WAY more. Oh yeah, and May's Pokémon were awesome, she brought Squirtle back to the anime too! So yeah, May is definitely my favorite human character from the anime.

So far for the characters in XY, Bonnie and Serena are my favorites because Bonnie acts so cute and Serena seems to have some interesting backstory about her and Ash.
I have yet to see an episode from the X&Y arc but I already like Serena best.

I've only watched the first season and XY so far, so forgive me if there are better, but so far I like XY Ash and Pikachu the most, along with Misty. Mewtwo and Mew from the first movie I also enjoyed. Of course, you gotta love the original season one Ash :3

Misty is my all time favorite character for gazillion reasons. May is pretty high on my list as well. She's my second favorite
I like Kanto Ash and Brock. I like the original trio in general ( They had the BEST chemistry together,adding humor to the show making it enjoyable and memorable )
As for rivals I like Gary, Drew and Harley

So far I'm liking Serena and Bonnie the most in the XY series. Bonnie's character is great as she really adds to the XY group's chemistry, her personality is adorable and her gag is hilarious.
Serena's character interests me alot, I'd like to see how her character is developed, how she finds a goal to follow, and how her crush on Ash will go. I also like it that she slightly looks like Dawn a little and she kind of reminds me of her a little too.
Ash is my all-time favorite, despite his flaws.
AG: May, Max.
DP: Dawn, Paul, Looker, Cynthia.
BW: TR, N.
XY: Serena, Bonnie, Clemont.
Ash has his moments. Aldo during (pre-winning in the Orange Islands)OS and BW I didn't like him that much.
OS: Tracey(Orange islands) and Casey/Gary (Johto)
AG: May and Brandon
DP: Dawn and Barry
BW: ugh, Cilan had his funny moments.
XY: I'm liking Clemont a lot actually, might get a position for my favorite male companion and Serena has her appeal being an even more girly companion that Dawn (I'm not a big fan of tomboy's)

For me the Pokemon series has been a big part of my childhood, especially the anime. There were a lot of characters I really like and some I despise. Like with most series and games, I grew more attached to the villainous characters.
In the original series I pretty much enjoyed all of the characters. There were a couple I didn't like, including Richie, Tracey and Casey, but the majority were good. My favourites from this series are definitely the TR Trio and Wobbuffet.
When the Hoenn series started I wasn't as enthusiastic about it due to Misty leaving the cast but I quickly warmed up to May and Max. I also began to dislike Ash a bit for some reason but I still enjoyed him as a character. I was also a bit disappointed that Juan was the Sootopolis Gym Leader as Wallace was (and still is) my favourite Gym Leader. Overall though my favourites were still the TR Trio and Wobbuffet but I really liked Harley as well.
When the Battle Frontier season started I was rather heartbroken to hear that 4Kids were no longer going to be dubbing the series which made me lose interest in the anime for awhile, only really tuning in to watch episodes with some of my favourite recurring characters (in this case only Harley). Once I got used to the new VAs I went back and watched the episodes I missed. I didn't really like any of the new characters introduced except Solidad and the Frontier Brains but I wouldn't say any of them were my favourites. I also disliked Ash more towards the end of this season and I really began to dislike Pikachu too.
The Sinnoh season was a lot more exciting and enjoyable for me. I started watching it as soon as it aired in the UK and I really liked Dawn as a main character, more than I did May and Max. Still disliked Ash and Pikachu but I would sit down, without fail, to watch the new episodes when they aired. I was also really happy to hear that Wallace would be appearing even if it was just for a short story arc and was also happy to see May again. This series also introduced my all time favourite character from the series, Pokemon Hunter J. Was a bit disappointed when they "killed" her off. Despite this I still enjoyed the rest of the series.
The BW season is where the anime went completely downhill for me. The TR trio barely appeared, Wobbuffet and Brock were both gone and he and Dawn were replaced by Iris and Cilan. Cilan, I felt, was an okay main character but I just didn't grow attached to him as I had with past main characters. Iris, on the other hand, has probably become my most hated anime character. I found her really infuriating and her calling Ash a kid constantly just made me want to punch her. I felt that Trip was too similar to Paul and Bianca was just so stupid it made me rather angry as I liked her in the games. I hardly watched any of these episodes, and I don't plan to, so I don't know much about the other characters that appeared. Out of the ones I did watch the only character I liked was Morana (probably because she has a similar self-centred and arrogant attitude to some of my other favourites).
The XY series is, so far, a hundred times better than the BW series. I really like Clemont, Bonnie and Serena as main characters. I'm hoping that this series will continue to be enjoyable and not end up a train-wreck like the BW series did.
Overall my 10 favourite characters (in order) would have to be:
* Pokemon Hunter J
* Jessie, James and Meowth (all tied)
Kanto:misty iI loved her fight throught out the saga she was proved a awesome charather[SIZE=3]
dp: Ash he had the best cobos let not forget paul epic best of a rivql
[IMG]file:///C:/Users/nathan/Downloads/dedenne.png[/IMG] iris : such a egg badges : Hana Badge.
I keep my friend in my heart as close as gold when my soul truns silver and my memories are alway black and white i love everone xtraspecial my road was platuim and sappirie and voloconos were fire red grass leafgreen
male - ash - of course the hero of every pokemon series
female - serena - i love her personality and character
Ash (OS)- He wasn't cool or mature: he was sincere, humble, caring, and not a jerk, even though sometimes he let his temper get the better of him. As far as I'm concerned, having more character speaks louder than being a badass anyday in my book!
Ash (AG) is my second favorite Ash, though.
It all makes sense now why we both have different tastes to one another.
I said earlier in the thread that I like sinnoh but I might go into more detail. I also like OS Ash aswell but the reason is bizarre considering I watch dub.
I like sinnoh Ash because he feels to me like a more mature version of OS Ash. My favourite traits that make Ash, Ash to me are present in both despite one being more mature than the other (also despite being 2 actors).
I've always seen Sinnoh and Hoenn Ash as more mature versions but I've always leaned on sinnoh. I think Hoenn Ash had old traits that were present in OS Ash but I didn't take much notice of those particular traits back in OS because those traits didn't interest me as much. A character can have a tonne of traits but some traits will be liked more than other traits.
To you he wasn't cool or a badass in OS. To me he was cool and a badass. That's the similarities I actually like in OS and sinnoh Ash that I find they have in common. He always acted tough in OS when he challenged people to a battle and always stood for his beliefs by really putting his thoughts forwards.=D
If he didn't he wouldn't have done all the awsome things he did. Both Ash's are also passionate about their goals and have some determination.
As for Ash being not a jerk in OS. I personally feel he was a bit of a jerk in OS because they used that for comedy relief. He insulted Misty a few times in the english version and got full in the head (bragging a few times, claiming a kid had rigged the match (the sandshrew kid), demanding a battle from Prima in a rude fashion while being full of it at the same time and getting full of it again during the grass Pokemon tournament in Johto and thinking he could win the whole thing without training and the best memorable moment was when he insulted an entire town about their perfume only to get black banned from the very gym he was supposed to challenge.XP). Plus many more crazy stunts.
I've watched OS over 100 times. His most funny and memorable moments were his jerkiest moments. He was a brat at times. A funny lovable brat.=)
Though I am glad the jerky traits tone down in later seasons. Sinnoh Ash is alot nicer and as a result is more mature which makes him somewhat different to OS Ash but still retains the coolness, passion and determination he had in OS resulting in similarities between sinnoh and OS for me.=)
I can agree on him being kind and caring alot of the time though in OS. I also agree he was a bit quick tempered and is not mature. So there are traits that I saw the same as you.=)
Though it just shows how 2 people can watch the same character and focus on different traits of said character.
Though thanks for reminding me. The last time I've talked this excitedly about OS Ash was when I was a kid.
So I guess I'll change my answer to my 2 most favourite characters are OS and DP Ash.^-^
I also liked Misty and Dawn.
season 9 and Sinnoh May and OS and Sinnoh brock.

Put together by me.
(On that note, I'm glad someone found him cool and badass in the OS, my friend-- most people would laugh at that claim here-- I'm not one of them, though).
See, I liked how much more caring he was despite being a little silly at times and arrogant like you said, because that caring side of him shined through-- he was willing to take hits for his PKMN even if it meant hurting himself in the process, he was willing to let himself freeze in the cold just for his Pokemon, and such. Starting from after "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snorunt!" that side of Ash began to completely disappear, and then we got the Ash who was too interested in battles for his own good-- he lost his more sympathetic side, IMO.
You can kind of see where I'm going with this, huh? I liked how immature he was myself because he acted like an actual 10 year old boy in the OS, and didn't get overglorification from nearly everyone as well! lol.
I mean, in XY002, all these people are making SUCH a big deal out of Ash attempting to get a collar off Garchomp (big deal), and then jumping off to save Pikachu-- the older Ash didn't need that crap to make him seem awesome: his character spoke louder than words from others, and even when no one else was willing to help him, he did so anyway-- that truly stood out.

For good people Ash but only him in AG,DP and XY where he was cool. May,Max (HA! Y and X Hoenn confirmed JK) and Dawn. (Can't say anything on the trio in XY since I have only seen 2 eps so far)
As for bad guys I love Team Rocket but only began to in the last year or so. It was around the N arc. so glad we have them in XY not being serious. For me Team Rocket is better now compared to other series. Still rewatching older eps not sure why I was not a fan till so late.
There's a tyrant king with a reptile heart
And he's started a wave of crime now
From his ship high above he abducted my love
For the fourteenth or fifteenth time now
In terms of the Ash's:
Kanto/Orange Ash > AG Ash > DP Ash > Johto Ash > Unova Ash.
I don't know where to place XY Ash yet, we'll wait and see. I do agree that Ash has never been as entertaining as he was in Kanto/Orange again, but oh well.
Kanto/Orange Ash > AG Ash > Johto Ash > XY Ash > BW Ash = DP Ash (I hate both for different reasons, respectively).
