Not to be confused with Dawn Strider.
Dawn was a Pokémon Coordinator and a former traveling companion of Ash and Brock. Her goal was to become a great Pokémon Coordinator like her mother, Johanna. Her first Pokémon was a Piplup that she received from Professor Rowan in the first Diamond & Pearl series episode.
On a brisk Thursday morning, Dawn arrived at Autumn's house, ready to help the heroes in their next quest. She told them of Evanil's supposed involvement in the Second Deadly Alliance, and guided them to a supposed Alliance base.
Using a Surfing Empoleon to get onto the island housing the Alliance, the crew was almost immediately spotted by the Alliance and was forced to hide. On the shore, however, they were not left alone- they were then attacked by Ghetsis, who was cleanly swept by Dawn's Blaziken. Ghetsis fled again...
On hand Edit
With Professor Rowan Edit
- Dawn is the only ally who had served an actual sentence in prison for an actual crime.
- Dawn is the only female canonical Pokémon trainer ally who EV trains her Pokémon. The others focus more on coordinating.
- Beth is another one to do so, but is not canonical; instead, she is a doppelganger of Leaf.
- It is also interesting to note that Dawn is the only one who had given up a career as a coordinator.
