The only difference is the lack of a goal, and Serena not being interested in battling.
I would accept serena being a battler if she had her game design. But since she's not, I don't feel like she needs to do anything major. Plus the less focus she gets, the more potential focus there is for chespin to shine assuming froakie doesn't hog all of it like oshawott did in BW.
the length of her skirt, her voice acting, her cheerful personality in general. I like Dawn or should I better say Hikari because of Megumi Toyoguchi. Trust me when I say her voice acting is fanservice to me at times (Those Daijobus.......).
But even if we go that route and talk about her appearance, I believe I like Dawn's hair more.

As for Serena's hair, its more wavy with a ponytail in the back and shen she takes off her hat its combed around her face a bit better, while Dawn just has the usual long-haircut. Also I guess blonde hair resonates with the audience more because its a realistic hair color unlike anime-blue hair.
If it weren't due to Serena being so passive I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two of them. Even their interactions with Ash are what people previously wanted Dawn to do back when DP was originally airing before we knew what a girl with a blatant crush on Ash would be like.
Remember, we have new writers this time... just because BW didn't satisfy you doesn't mean this series won't.
I also think we should try to think of the reasons why Serena's goal hasn't been chosen yet. 1. to create suspense and lots of interest (already in some of the previous episodes Serena has been thinking about what she wants to do so all those thoughts help bring suspense to the viewers). and 2. Due to the fact she doesn't know what she wants to do yet, as she continues to think and possibly try out new things, it can help lead to some character development.
I think one of the worst decition for Serena Caracter was is Crush for Ash Right now that is all is caracter.
Shipping fanservice is one of the worst decition of the this new Writers.
Sorry for my really bad english

If anyone asked me, we should wait and see what happens before we hit episode 50th at the latest before coming to a conclusion about Serena's character as a whole.

I hardly think that's a legitimate worry because for the umpteenth time I have mentioned it in this thread, we haven't seen Serena lusting over senpai in a month's worth of episodes.
Should I accuse you Serena fans of liking her out of "revenge" because you didn't like Iris? XY fans of liking it purely out of revenge for BW being bad? No? Thought so.

Steering the conversation back into a PRODUCTIVE DIRECTION...
I really don't see how the Battle Chateau and Maison can be considered "goals." They're just two locations out of all of Kalos, and if Serena were to focus on them, then that would mean she leaves the group before Ash even gets to the League. I doubt they're gonna bring back Contests, barring a Hoenn Confirmed scenario. So really, the only logical choice would be becoming a Sky Trainer, though even then, that's kind of iffy, considering how few Flying-types have been introduced in this Generation. By that statement, I mean they'd probably prefer to showcase new Pokemon rather than old. So really, all I can do is adopt a wait-and-see attitude on the matter.

As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.
This thread has gotten even more out of control! Now we're bringing BW into the mix! Poor Serena. Poor, poor Serena. I'm done trying to guess Serena's goal and I'm done worrying about it. All I want is for Serena to interact more with Clemont, catch her Pancham, evolve Fennekin, battle every once in awhile and regain some of her rebellious attitude. Do those five things and I'll be fine with Serena. I'm not wasting anymore time freaking out over a goal.
RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
