Bio
Dawn is a Pokémon Coordinator whose hometown is Twinleaf Town in the Sinnoh region. Her mother was a famous coordinator and she decided to follow in her footsteps. Dawn started her journey off one day by heading to Professor Rowan's laboratory to receive her starter Pokémon. After the events that transpired at the laboratory, she decided to choose Piplup as her starter Pokémon.

Dawn met Ash and Brock during the first day of her journey. She decided to travel with them as they journeyed through the Sinnoh region. Being inexperienced, journeying with Ash and Brock has proven to be very helpful as she has learned a great deal about Pokémon from the both of them.

Dawn's favourite saying is "Daijōbu! (大丈夫)" which translates as "I'm fine" and she is constantly heard saying it. In the English dub her catch phrase is "No need to worry!".

Kenny is constantly teasing Dawn and calling her Dee Dee, short for Diamond Dandruff, (ピカリ, Pikari in the Japanese original) a nickname he came up with one day after she got shocked by the kindergarten's Plusle and Minun which caused her hair to go all frizzly and sparkle. ("ピカピカ", "pikapika" is an onomatopoeia for "sparkling".) Dawn revealed the way she got her nickname to Ash and Brock when her childhood fears were revived after she encountered Ursula's Plusle and Minun before the Daybreak Town Pokémon Contest.

Dawn was the first main character to lose in the first round of any competition. She lost in the appeals of both Hearthome and Solaceon contest. Those defeats put Dawn on the path she needed to be as after a brief recharge and positive influence by Ash and Zoey she made it to the Grand Festival and by making it past fierce battles with the likes of Ursula and Jessie she made it to the finals. A distinction no other main character has ever achieved. Although defeat was the outcome her dream is still alive.

East Isshu and the Junior World Cup

By courtesy of Cynthia, Dawn decided to train at Cynthia's East Isshu house until the day the World Junior Cup started. Ash was surprised to see her there as he thought she was in the Johto region.

In the second round of the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup, Dawn was matched up against Iris. Despite Iris' Dragonite not following her commands, Dawn's Mamoswine ended up loosing the battle in a hard fought match between two very strong Pokémon. Dawn was eliminated from the tournament after that battle. After the Junior Cup reached it's conclusion Dawn revealed that her next stop would be Blackthorn City, Johto for an upcoming Wallace Cup.
