Dawn's Buneary (Japanese: ヒカリのミミロル Hikari's Mimirol) was the first Pokémon captured by Dawn, and her second Pokémon overall.


Buneary's affection towards Pikachu

When Dawn first started on her journey, she ran into several Buneary but failed to catch any of them. However, one morning, this Buneary spotted Ash's Pikachu catching a potato that Brock's Croagunk have thrown and developed a crush on him. After a sequence of events that nearly got Pikachu run over, Dawn chased after Buneary, who then swiped Pikachu. After a while, Dawn finally found and caught her.

Buneary is used often in Dawn's Contests. She was first used in the battle round of the Jubilife contest. She also helped Dawn win the Hearthome Collection in Arriving in Style!, her first battle in the Wallace Cup and her appeal in Battling the Generation Gap!. In Another One Gabites the Dust!, Buneary was used again in the appeal rounds of the Chocovine Town Contest. She managed to get Dawn to the battle round. In Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!, Buneary, along with Piplup, was used in the appeal rounds of the Daybreak Contest. They managed to get Dawn to the battle round.

Buneary began wearing a vest with a heart on it in The Bells are Singing!. She appears to be very proud of it and, for the most part, only takes it off for contests and battles.

Despite her size, Buneary is very powerful and was able to tire out Maylene's Meditite enough so that Ambipom could defeat it. Her Ice Beam, which appears to be her main attack, is powerful enough to freeze an entire lake.

Buneary appears to be a helpful Pokémon, as seen when she took off her vest to give to Pachirisu when the Template:Type2 Pokémon was sick from storing too much electricity. When around Pikachu, she gets flustered and hides her face in its wool. However, she is always cheering for Pikachu when he participates in a gym battle and, when not being used herself, for Dawn during a contest.

In Teaching The Student Teacher!, Dawn perfects a new combination move with the help of her Buneary and Pachirisu. Buneary used Ice Beam on Pachrisu and Pachirisu used Discharge to create a beautiful new contest combination for the Sinnoh Grand Festival.

In Last Call, First Round!, Buneary was used in the Appeals Round of the Sinnoh Grand Festival. Together with Cyndaquil, they made an excellent combination called, "Flame Ice" that put Dawn through to the next round. Later in Coming Full Festival Circle!, it battled Jessie and got Dawn to the final match.

In Memories are Made of Bliss!, it was revealed that Buneary had been chosen by Hermione to be a model for a Poké Stylist magazine and as a result Dawn decided to remain in Sinnoh while Ash and Brock returned to Kanto.

Move improvised

  • Spin was first used in Wild in the Streets! with Piplup. Together with it, they battled Aerodactyl. Buneary spun around and used Ice Beam.
  • Ice Chandelier is a combination move which was created by Buneary and Pachirisu when they were training with Dawn in Teaching The Student Teacher!. It involves Buneary using an Ice Beam around Pachirisu trapping it in a ball of ice. Pachirisu then runs around in the ball while using Discharge. The end result is a chandelier of ice that glows in a beautiful blue hue.

In the TCG

Dawn's Buneary is featured in the TCG as a Pokémon Pokémon M. The following is a list of cards named Buneary Pokémon M.

Dawn and Buneary
  • For O'er the Rampardos We Watched!, Professor Oak's lecture is about Dawn's Buneary. He writes this Pokémon senryū about it: ミミロルが みみをまるめて みみロール Mimiroru ga, mimi o marumete, mimi rōru "Mimirol, rolling up its ears, ear-roll."
  • In a similar fashion to Misty's Corsola fascination in the Whirl Islands and Ash Ketchum fishing a Corphish a couple of episodes before catching their own, Dawn had wanted a Buneary for several episodes before catching it. The similar situation happened with May and her fascination of Beautifly and later catching one.
  • Dawn's Buneary seems to be a parallel to May's Beautifly:
  • Buneary is the first Pokémon belonging to a main character to be seen wearing clothing on a regular basis (although her heart vest is usually removed before Buneary is used in a contest or a battle).
  • Like Brock's Croagunk, Buneary has not learned any new moves since it was captured.
