“does sonia count as a pokégirl”; thread locked after 27981 replies

@Leaf seems it's my turn not to understand, but... pokemon... girl... is there more to this?

@maevestrom “pokégirl” is a fan term for female sidekicks in the series, like misty, may, dawn, etc… they’re usually the same age as the player / ash and seen as something of a love interest

sonia is the main female deuteragonist of sword & shield, but on the other hand, she is older, not really seen as a love interest, and by the end of the games is a literal pokémon professor. so it’s unclear whether she really “counts” or serves the same function as like, Dawn, who is Rowan’s assistant in the games [if you play as a boy] but more of a rival and less of an adult figure
