    I stopped watching Pokémon for a while now, and I saw this new character 'Dawn'! What the heck happened to May and Misty? I really liked them!:frown:

    May went traveling with her bro to enter more pokemon contests, Misty left a few years ago.

    Hikari > Haruka anyway. Kasumi's been gone so long there's not much point in mentioning her anymore. Hikari's actually a pretty decent character so far. Unlike every other character in the show, success isn't coming easy for her.

    Use English please. I have NO IDEA who/what you are talking about.

    My post was written in English. Actually, from even from context it should be easy to guess who is who. Kasumi, who I stated had been gone a long time is clearly Misty. I referred to Hikari's progress so far, so obviously she is the newer character, Dawn. By process of elimination, this means that Haruka is May. See, that's not so hard is it?

    For the lazy:

    I think Misty will come back a time or 2, but hopefully May won't. I think Dawn's pretty good anyway.

    Nostalgic pokefans will always claim that Misty was the best female in the anime. Of course, she will always hold a place of honor in the history of the show. However, the news flash is that the anime was never "omg" great, even in the "good old days" and that the show is almost as good now as it was then. Dawn is a very good character, Team Galactic and the Hunter are providing "real" villians, and the plotline is actually moving forward.
    Johto and Hoenn will always be the weaker portions of the series.

    I used to like pokemon animie in the first season where ideas were original. In the newer episodes which i don't watch much (so correct me if i'm wrong)ash and his friends go to a place, they meet someone or a pokemon, team rocket is watching them,team rocket tries to steal the pokemon, ash and friends defeat them pikachu sends them flying away and they continue with their story. It's always like that!!!!

    If you think Pokemon is repetitive, try watching the news. :wink:

    Not bad. I like what they did with the opening credits theme.

    I agree with Chris Hikari (Dawn) is a really good character and is > Haruka (May)

    Dawn (I would just like to point out that while I do despise all things having to do with an English dub of an anime and usually use the Japanese names but as I have never seen Pokemon in Japanese nor do I intend to I'm more comfortable using the English names. Bright side, they aren't all stupid shortenings and alterations of the Japanese names like some animes I can think of *glares angrily at Digimon dub and ignores the whole Satoshi/Ash thing*) is absolutely better than May. I mean, seriously, May was the oddest combination of way too good and total wimp. Seriously, let's just take a look at the Kanto Grand Festival for proof. May makes it through, defeats both of her main rivals without much trouble, including Drew, the one who up until then was the new Gary in terms of almost never losing to the hero, and then breaks down crying because she loses in the semi-finals of one of the most prestigious events in the entire (Pokemon) world, and then sinks into depression for almost the entire rest of the series. Now, I'll admit, if I recall correctly Dawn also got upset when she lost her first Contest, but then again... it was her FIRST CONTEST! Why wouldn't she be upset about it, it's perfectly reasonable. Sorry, but at this point Dawn is the only thing I actually like about Pokemon at this point, and I like pointing out how she makes May look like even more of a pansy than she really is (which is saying a lot).

    P.S. Cheesy Land, where the heck have you been in the Pokemon community? I mean, even if you weren't watching the show I would think you would at least be hearing about it.

    I stepped away from the pokemon world for several years. Kind of a break due to going to college and everything. I started to watch it again now and I caught about ten episodes or so with May plus seeing movies with May and Max. Now I started watching and Dawn is on. I have recently bought the Diamond for the DS so I had seen her before but this was the first time I saw her on the show. I have a deep love for Misty, because I grew up watching those episodes and she was my favorite character. I also deeply love water pokemon so when I saw May I was instantly ticked off. And didn't like her, and the more I watched the episodes the more I disliked her. I put it to the fact that she was a replacement for Misty, but then I watched the episodes with Dawn and I really like her. Where May was whiny and also had a fear of pokemon and also apparently an initial disliking to them. Dawn has real struggles but also battles and tries hard and she really loves her pokemon. She just all and all is a great substitute for the original Misty. I'm a little annoyed that the voices have changed but that's just the way it has to be in TV, I doubt the original Ash and Broc sound the same after all these years. lol. But still I think Dawn is way and above better than May. Good ridance.
