-May was Ash's antithesis when she hated Pokémon and he didn't, showing some decent development for both when she got over it.

-May actually TRIED being a Pokémon trainer, but she realized that it was not for her.

-Due to her being into contests, it meant that we had 2 characters to root for, Ash and her. It wasn't Ash's journey anymore, it was shared.

-She had rivals on her own and in general relationships that did not circle around Ash

-Due to how her seasons worked, she traveled through Hoenn and Kanto, which meant two big contests, which led to some heavy development (aside from being pretty hype)

-I'm pretty sure this isn't canon, but she was the protagonist in the Manaphy movie. She Ash's only companion who has been the star of the movie instead of him

-Her last fight with Ash in the last contest showed their mutual understanding and RESPECT. Their relationship was one of the most heartwarming friendships with a side of rivalry that I have ever seen. Also no annoying shipping unlike Misty or Serena.

With all of this reasons, you can't really affirm that anybody else was better. She broke standards. She made contest a thing. If she didn't exist, Dawn wouldn't have either (her development is seriously similar to May's)

How can someone be so wrong I don't even know. Only Dawn comes close and that's because she is rllt similar to May development wise

Dawn was better in my opinion, She actually had a true partner pokemon in Piplup which was a mirror to Ash's Pikachu (Right down to the choosing not to evolve) plus I may be remembering this wrong but I think Dawn lost more contest then May which gave her story somewhat more of an arc.
Plus, Unlike May, Dawn actually competed in a Gym battle.

Misty is still hands down the best. Anyone who has a different opinion is wrong.

i often forget she was even in the anime, but that's probably because i didn't watch the hoenn anime much.

Yes. A water type specialist with no goals or ambition but because she was Ash’s first girl companion that makes her “the best”

Misty was really bad. I couldn't stand her holding Togepi every single second in the screen.
