Reasons for being hated: Mary Sue, replaced May, crybaby, is just a "copy of May".BAWW!!! Dawn is a Mary Sue!!! This is the excuse that everyone gives when they really don’t want to be specific about not liking a character. Dawn is far from perfect, she can get pretty demanding when things don’t go her way, and sometimes she is WAY too positive.
BAWW!!! Dawn replaced May!!!
You say that May replaced Misty and now you're calling Dawn replaced May? Just WTH, fans? This is a common false argument among Pokemon fans. I'm very surprised to see this one, considering May gets a lot, and I mean a LOT of hate for pretty much replacing Misty, which well… May got a really well closure for her adventure with Ash, I love May, she is my favorite character in the Pokemon anime, but I was content with her stay, and quite frankly I’d hate to see her as hammered Misty got in Johto, where she was reduced to just carry Togepi.
Also, once again, this is more the executives wanting to go on another character, Diamond & Pearl was right in the corner at the time, so it made sense.
BAWW!!! Dawn is a crybaby!!!
Geez, Lenalee (D.Gray-Man), Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) cry for good reasons. She gets mad when things don’t go her way but really, she is friggin positive, her catch phrase is "No need to worry!" for crying out loud!
If she, Lenalee and Winry didn't cry then it wouldn't make her human because it's normal for humans to cry.
BAWW!!! Dawn is just a "copy of May"!!!
Wrong! This isn't true at all.
May of all things, isn’t as lady-like as Dawn is, May does get wilder in a lot of ocassions, she gets depressed easily and really needed the support, May didn’t even liked Pokemon at the start, heck, she didn’t knew what she would do with one other than going on an adventure. Dawn is more positive and her dreams are more straight up, more cemented and it adds to her positiveness, which is I say, Dawn’s best attribute.
BAWW!! Ash belongs with me/Misty/May <insert OC or canon here>!!!
*cough*You're welcome to pair up to whatever couples you like but remember this:
Ash isn't a teenager yet! He's only 10!! He's too young to get a girlfriend or fall in love yet. Ash needs to age more and he needs to be at least 14 or older to get a girlfriend. He's too busy thinking about becoming Pokemon Master.
You're welcome to write fanfics where Ash and his friends are teenagers. But Ash doesn't exist even if he does, he won't tolerate anybody hating Dawn because she's important to him and Brock.
In short, Dawn was my favorite character in Pokemon. I stopped watching Pokemon entirely after Diamond and Pearl ended. I use wake up every Saturday morning to watch Diamond and Pearl.
