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.

In the anime

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 Another One Gabites the Dust!, 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. In Crossing the Battle Line!, she was used to battle Maylene. She lost easily to her Meditite.

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. The similar situation happened with May and her fascination of Beautifly and later catching one.
  • 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:
  • 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).
  • Buneary is the only one of Dawn's Pokémon that hasn't learned any new moves since of its capture.
