'''May''' ('''ハルカ Haruka'') is a young energetic Pokémon [[Coordinator]] currently traveling through various regions to compete in [[Pokémon Contest]]s. She started her journey traveling through the [[Hoenn]] region accompanying [[Ash]] and [[Brock (anime)|Brock]], along with her little brother [[Max]]. On the way to the Grand Fesival, she met Harley and Drew (with whom she had a fierce rivalry, while the latter developed a friendly relationship with her as well). When Ash and Brock left for [[Sinnoh]], she goes to [[Johto]] alone without Max. She appears in a few episodes of ''Diamond and Pearl: Battle Dimension'', where she traveled to Sinnoh to compete in the [[Wallace Cup]].

==Appearance==

==Personality==
  +
At the start of her journey, May didn't like Pokémon, as she wanted to start her journey just so she can visit places. However, her encounter with Ash and Brock changed that. May is a kind-hearted person, who would help people in need. Like Misty, she can get very angry at times, with her disagreements with Ash or her brother, Max. However, she can get very sad, especially when she loses a Contest, but does her best to prevail. She is also shown to have a side for romance, though at rare occasions.
   
== May's Biography ==

==Biography==
May is a Pokémon coordinator from [[Petalburg City]] and is the daughter of the [[Petalburg City]] [[Gym Leader]], [[Norman]], and sister of [[Max]]. She meets [[Ash Ketchum]] in [[Hoenn]] and starts traveling with him after obtaining her first [[Pokémon]], [[Torchic]]. [[File:May.jpg|thumb|May is a character from the anime series.]]

May is a Pokémon coordinator from [[Petalburg City]] and is the daughter of the [[Petalburg City]] [[Gym Leader]], [[Norman]], and sister of [[Max]]. She met [[Ash Ketchum]] in Hoenn and starts traveling with him after obtaining her first [[Pokémon]], [[Torchic]]. She has [[rival]]ries from some contest participants, [[Drew]], [[Harley]], and [[Jessie]] of [[Team Rocket]], and goes on to win many contests. She picked [[Torchic]] as her first [[Pokémon]] and [[Squirtle]] as her first [[Kanto]] [[Pokémon]].
  +
[[File:May-Beautifly.jpg|thumb|left|May and her [[Beautifly]].]]
  +
She loves cute Pokémon and flashy techniques, competing in contests and making her own Pokéblock with recipes that she thinks up. "''May's Purple Surprise''" and "''May's Pink Surprise''" were such examples, as everyone else rejected them after tasting them, while the only ones who liked her Purple Surprise are her [[Munchlax]] and [[Jessie]].
   
She has [[rival]]ries from some contest participants, [[Drew]], [[Harley]], and [[Jessie]] of [[Team Rocket]], and goes on to win many contests. She is in four [[Pokémon]] movies. She picked [[Torchic]] as her first [[Pokémon]] and [[Squirtle]] as her first [[Kanto]] [[Pokémon]]. May is generally a very sweet, fun-loving, caring, kind-hearted, and a brave person. But sometimes a real go-getter type of confident person. When it comes to certain things, she can be a glass half-full type of a straight woman that she is, even though she is a very nice person.
+
When May saw a contest battle for the first time, she decided to become a coordinator. She then had to overcome her fear of Bug type Pokémon by raising her [[Wurmple]] into a [[Beautifly]].
   
But she can have a tougher side sometimes, such as when she argues with her brother, Max. Despite that they argue once in a while, she has definitely shown that she really deeply cares for her brother. She helps people a lot, especially ones with romance problems. May has a tendency to rely on luck once in a while when it comes to certain things.
+
While Ash and Brock chose to travel to [[Sinnoh]], May decides to follow her rivals to [[Johto]]. However, she meets up with Ash, Brock, and [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]] in Sinnoh, wearing a green bandanna like the character [[Pokémon Emerald]], then sometime later participates in the [[Wallace Cup]]. Dawn once referred to her as "''Princess''" which makes the fact that she has an unknown identification believable.
   
She really loves cute Pokémon and flashy techniques, and competing in contests. She really loves making her own Pokéblock with recipes that she thinks up, including ones she calls "''May's Purple Surprise''" and "''May's Pink Surprise''" while everyone else rejected them after tasting them, the only ones who liked her Purple Surprise are her [[Munchlax]] and [[Jessie]].

When May saw a contest battle for the first time, she decided to become a coordinator. She then had to overcome her fear of bug type Pokémon by raising her [[Wurmple]] into a [[Beautifly]].
+
After narrowly losing to Dawn in the [[Wallace Cup]] Finals, she leaves the group to continue her journey in Johto.
   
While [[Ash]] and [[Brock]] chose to travel to [[Sinnoh]], May decides to follow her rivals to [[Johto]]. However, she meets up with [[Ash]], [[Brock]], and [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]] in Sinnoh, wearing a green bandanna like the character [[Pokémon Emerald]], then sometime later participates in the [[Wallace Cup]]. [[Dawn]] once referred to her as "''Princess''" which makes the fact that she has an unknown identification believable.
+
She would use her Combusken's [[Fire Spin]] and her Squirtle's [[Bubble]] to create a combination of Fire and Water. Which was dubbed by Lillian's Medichan as a Fire and Water [[Whirlwind]]. She was able to knock-out [[Drew's Flygon]] and his [[Absol]]. During her journey she won numerous ribbons in both Hoenn and Kanto and she is still using those skills and talents in Johto currently. But May did reappear during the Sinnoh saga in four episodes meeting Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Dawn and [[Zoey]] for the [[Wallace Cup]]. May also has a personal ending theme song called ''I Won't Lose'' also called Haruka's theme in Japan in two episodes of the Pokémon anime's Kanto Battle Frontier saga the theme was used as background music in ''Curbing the Crimson Tide!'' and again in the next episode ''What I Did For Love!''. It was also used during the Sinnoh Wallace Cup saga.
 
After narrowly losing to [[Dawn]] in the [[Wallace Cup]] Finals, she leaves the group to continue her journey in [[Johto]]. This was May's last appearance, and the future of her appearing again remains uncertain.
 
 
May has a unique taste for food. She loves to taste many different types of food. As a Coordinator, May was able to learn more about [[Pokémon]], and her knowledge became greater during her journey in both [[Hoenn]] and [[Kanto]] for her contests that she competes in, that she can come up with different types of attacks.
 
 
She was also able use these combinations in battle. For example she would use her [[Combusken]]'s [[Fire Spin]] and her [[Squirtle]]'s [[Bubble]] to create a combination of Fire and Water. Which was dubbed by Lillian's Medichan as a Fire and Water [[Whirlwind]]. She was able to knockout [[Drew's Flygon]] and his [[Absol]]. During her journey she won numerous ribbons in both [[Hoenn]] and [[Kanto]] and she is still using those skills and talents in [[Johto]] currently.

|info = Blaziken was given to May by [[Professor Birch]] in Littleroot Town when it was still a [[Torchic]]. She chose it as her starter Pokémon because she thought [[Treecko]] was creepy and scary (though she later called them cute in Trees a Crowd), while the starter [[Mudkip]] had attacked her earlier with a Water Gun to the face. As a Torchic, it evolved in the episode A Shroomish Skirmish, when trying to fend off some [[Shroomish]] and [[Breloom]]. It later evolved in the midst of a Pokémon battle with Team Rocket.

*She is the only female character to have three starters ([[May's Blaziken|Torchic]], [[May's Wartortle|Squirtle]] and [[May's Venusaur|Bulbasaur]]).
  +
*The first Pokémon she used in fact was not [[Torchic]] but a [[Mudkip]] but she did not know how to command it to attack [[Poochyena]] and ended up getting hit in the face with a [[Water Gun]] attack.

My bike's been barbecued!

–May after Ash's Pikachu charred her bike.

May ('ハルカ Haruka) is a young energetic Pokémon Coordinator currently traveling through various regions to compete in Pokémon Contests. She started her journey traveling through the Hoenn region accompanying Ash and Brock, along with her little brother Max. On the way to the Grand Fesival, she met Harley and Drew (with whom she had a fierce rivalry, while the latter developed a friendly relationship with her as well). When Ash and Brock left for Sinnoh, she goes to Johto alone without Max. She appears in a few episodes of Diamond and Pearl: Battle Dimension, where she traveled to Sinnoh to compete in the Wallace Cup.

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

At the start of her journey, May didn't like Pokémon, as she wanted to start her journey just so she can visit places. However, her encounter with Ash and Brock changed that. May is a kind-hearted person, who would help people in need. Like Misty, she can get very angry at times, with her disagreements with Ash or her brother, Max. However, she can get very sad, especially when she loses a Contest, but does her best to prevail. She is also shown to have a side for romance, though at rare occasions.

BiographyEdit

277-May

May riding her bike.

May is a Pokémon coordinator from Petalburg City and is the daughter of the Petalburg City Gym Leader, Norman, and sister of Max. She met Ash Ketchum in Hoenn and starts traveling with him after obtaining her first Pokémon, Torchic. She has rivalries from some contest participants, Drew, Harley, and Jessie of Team Rocket, and goes on to win many contests. She picked Torchic as her first Pokémon and Squirtle as her first Kanto Pokémon.

May-Beautifly

May and her Beautifly.

She loves cute Pokémon and flashy techniques, competing in contests and making her own Pokéblock with recipes that she thinks up. "May's Purple Surprise" and "May's Pink Surprise" were such examples, as everyone else rejected them after tasting them, while the only ones who liked her Purple Surprise are her Munchlax and Jessie.

When May saw a contest battle for the first time, she decided to become a coordinator. She then had to overcome her fear of Bug type Pokémon by raising her Wurmple into a Beautifly.

While Ash and Brock chose to travel to Sinnoh, May decides to follow her rivals to Johto. However, she meets up with Ash, Brock, and Dawn in Sinnoh, wearing a green bandanna like the character Pokémon Emerald, then sometime later participates in the Wallace Cup. Dawn once referred to her as "Princess" which makes the fact that she has an unknown identification believable.

DawnvsMay-BattleForTheCup

May and Dawn battling in the Wallace Cup.

May in Sinnoh

May saying goodbye to her friends.

After narrowly losing to Dawn in the Wallace Cup Finals, she leaves the group to continue her journey in Johto.

She would use her Combusken's Fire Spin and her Squirtle's Bubble to create a combination of Fire and Water. Which was dubbed by Lillian's Medichan as a Fire and Water Whirlwind. She was able to knock-out Drew's Flygon and his Absol. During her journey she won numerous ribbons in both Hoenn and Kanto and she is still using those skills and talents in Johto currently. But May did reappear during the Sinnoh saga in four episodes meeting Ash, Pikachu, Brock, Dawn and Zoey for the Wallace Cup. May also has a personal ending theme song called I Won't Lose also called Haruka's theme in Japan in two episodes of the Pokémon anime's Kanto Battle Frontier saga the theme was used as background music in Curbing the Crimson Tide! and again in the next episode What I Did For Love!. It was also used during the Sinnoh Wallace Cup saga.
