'''Dawn's Buneary''' (Japanese: '''ヒカリのミミロル''' ''Hikari's Mimirol'') was the first {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} captured by {{an|Dawn}}, and her second Pokémon overall.

When Dawn first started on her journey, she ran into [[DP002|several]] [[DP004|Buneary]] but failed to catch any of them. However, one morning, this Buneary spotted [[Ash's Pikachu]] catching a potato that [[Brock's Croagunk]] have thrown and [[LagomorphShipping|developed a crush]] on him. After a sequence of events that nearly got Pikachu run over, Dawn chased after Buneary, who then swiped Pikachu. After a while, Dawn finally found and caught her.
Buneary is used often in Dawn's {{pkmn|Contest}}s. She was first used in the battle round of the {{city|Jubilife}} Contest. She also helped Dawn win the [[Hearthome Collection]] in ''[[DP086|Arriving in Style!]]'', her first battle in the [[Wallace Cup]] and her appeal in ''[[DP095|Battling the Generation Gap!]]''. In ''[[DP114|Another One Gabites the Dust!]]'', Buneary was used again in the appeal rounds of the [[Chocovine Town]] Contest. She managed to get Dawn to the battle round. In ''[[DP161|Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!]]'', Buneary, along with {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}}, was used in the appeal rounds of the {{town|Daybreak}} {{pkmn|Contest}}. They managed to get Dawn to the battle round.

Buneary began wearing a vest with a heart on it in ''[[DP070|The Bells are Singing!]]''. She appears to be very proud of it and, for the most part, only takes it off for Contests and battles.
In ''[[DP167|Teaching The Student Teacher!]]'', Dawn perfects a new combination move with the help of her Buneary and Pachirisu. Buneary used {{m|Ice Beam}} on Pachirisu and Pachirisu used {{m|Discharge}} to create a beautiful new Contest combination for the [[Sinnoh Grand Festival]].
In ''[[DP174|Last Call, First Round!]]'', Buneary was used in the Appeals Round of the Sinnoh Grand Festival. Together with {{TP|Dawn|Cyndaquil|Quilava}}, they made an excellent combination called, "Flame Ice" that put Dawn through to the next round. Later in ''[[DP176|Coming Full Festival Circle!]]'', it battled [[Jessie]] and got Dawn to the final match.
In ''[[DP191|Memories are Made of Bliss!]]'', it was revealed that Buneary had been chosen by [[Hermione]] to be a model for a Poké Stylist magazine and as a result Dawn decided to remain in [[Sinnoh]] while Ash and Brock returned to [[Kanto]].
