    Main Pokemon

    Dawn Clareton is a character created by Nintendo. She is the cousin of Louis Robinson and the girlfriend of Paul Neuwbt. She is from Twinleaf Town living with her mother, Johanna.


    Dawn was originally made by the Pokemon Company a long time ago. The creator was a really big fan of Dawn from the Diamond and Pearl Series. Later on, Dawn became a traveling partner of Louis. 

    Later on, her creator wanted to deepen the relationship between Dawn and Louis. Her creator made the two cousins, so they could in some way "love" each other. During this time, he also changed up her look. When the creator watched Diamond and Pearl, he didn't really like how Dawn's hat covers up her bangs, so he made sure to not put a hat on her design so she could look "prettier".

    Her look was altered from a black tank with a pink connecting skirt, to a white top with a open black sleeved vest and a pink skirt with black boots with white laces. Her hairclips were also changed from yellow traingles, to pink hearts, while the back hairclip becomes a cylinder-like clip.

    About a year later, her creator was disappointed that there was no contests in Unova, so Dawn became a coordinator competing in the Unova Grand Festival.

    As of now, her look was changed. She no longer wears hair clips to lengthen her side hair. She also altered the color of her outfit. Her white top remained the same, her black vest changed into a baby blue one, her pink skirt became a white checkered light blue skirt, and her boots went from black and pink to blue and white.
