    Default Which female protagonist had the best role in a movie?

    As we know, Ash is the hero in virtually all the movies giving everyone else hardly a chance to do anything. Tracey did nothing in Movie 2, Brock was in the background in virtually all the movies except for battling Molly, Max did get the Jirachi subplot in movie 6, and Cilan didn't do that much in Movie 14.

    However the 4 female protagonists did get somewhat a marginal role in the movies. I know this is unfair to Iris as she's only in one movie so far, but who do you think got the best role in a movie?

    For me, it has to be May.

    Dawn didn't have any major role. Misty played a prevelant part in Movie 2 by actually saving Ash's life, but May actually played a major part in the plot for Movie 9, being Manaphy's "mother" and getting a good amount of heartwarming and emotional scenes.

    Only May had any significant role in any movie. And even with her, Ash stole the spotlight in the end.

    ^^ Movie 10 says hi. Dawn did go with Ash to the Alamos Town's tower and played the musical instrument together with him (the main goal to stop the fight between Palkia and Dialga). The screen time was pretty even between both (with slight advantage of Ash, of course). Plus, the ending of the movie was focused on Dawn's performance in Alamos Town's Contest, which was the entire reason they traveled there.

    However, I agree that May also got a pretty good role in her last movie. That's why I chose both.

    Dawn's role in the 10th movie was pretty good, which is odd because in the rest of the DP movies she's pretty much forgotten about.

    Hikari helped Satoshi out in the DP movies a lot. At least she didn't get shoved into an escape capsule in her starring roles.

    I would've liked May better if she actually sung the lulluby in Movie 6, not just du-du-du it. She has a wonderful voice.

    Either Misty or May, but if I pick one, I'd go with Misty

    Voted for Dawn. Her role in Movie 10 was the most active role ever played by a female protagonist in a movie. She and her pokémon both helped Ash a lot to solve the crisis. Plus her role in Movie 11 was exactly the same as May's role in Movie 9 which itself was exactly the same as Max's role in movie 6 (i.e. pet the cute legendary and watch Ash save the world), so to me Dawn comes out on top as far as having a bigger role. In Movie 12 and 13 though, the writers increasingly treated her as a minor character though.

    I'm thinking Dawn had the attention in the movies the most. But I can't really say that it was the best. May's was too little and Misty's, well it was times when Ash took over the whole thing when she was there.

    Well, I voted Misty, just cause of Ash's breef mensioning of her in the 6th movie. It was just too beautiful...

    I agree I liked Dawn's roles a lot too though. And her not being shoved into a capsol to await her 'rescuing'. U_U;; I prefer girls who can save themselves and help out :D

    I like being pretty irl and wear dresses i wish i could go sweet lolita...
    Riku and Clefairies are adorbs :D

    The line of Ash mentioning Misty in the Jirachi movie is dub added. I also don't see how that line made you think Misty had a big role. None of the movies she was in focused on her at all.

    Yeah 4kids had a habit of putting in Misty references where they didn't exist in the original. Sometimes I wonder what 4kids was thinking when they did things like this.

    Not relevant and you know it.

    That being said, further shipping discussion should go in its respective forum.
