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. Her Japanese voice actresses are 川上とも子 Tomoko Kawakami (DP009-DP100) and Satsuki Yukino (DP103-present). Her English voice actress is Sarah Natochenny.


Dawn was unsuccessful in capturing a Buneary in Two Degrees of Separation! and in Dawn of a New Era! before managing to capture one in Setting the World on its Buneary. Buneary developed a crush on Ash's Pikachu on the same episode.

Buneary helped Dawn win the Hearthome Collection in Arriving in Style!. She also helped Dawn win her first battle in the Wallace Cup and her appeal in Battling the Generation Gap!.

In DP114, Buneary was used again in the appeal rounds of the Chocovine Town Contest. It managed to get Dawn to the battle round.

Buneary knows some powerful attacks and has often been able to hold its own in battle.

Buneary is always cheering for Ash's Pikachu during a gym battle, or for Dawn during a contest (when not used).

Dawn and Buneary
  • For DP018, 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 his own, Dawn had wanted a Buneary for several episodes before catching it. This has been a recurring theme in female main characters. Like May's Beautifly, it was also Dawn's first capture.
  • Buneary, along with another Template:Type2 Pokémon, Ambipom, are Dawn's only Pokémon to have never disobeyed her at any point.
  • Buneary is the third non-legendary Pokémon in the anime to defeat a legendary Pokémon, as seen in Hold the Phione!. The other two are Ash's Pikachu and Charizard.
  • Dawn's Buneary seems to be a parallel to May's Beautifly:
    • Both were their Trainer's first capture.
    • Both were used in the battle round of their first Pokémon Contest.
    • Both were used in a different kind of Pokémon Contest (Beautifly in the PokéRinger competition and Buneary in the Hearthome Collection).
    • Both were used in the battle round of the Wallace Cup once.
