* Prior to getting their starter Pokémon, Ash and Dawn have both imagined about each of the three starters. Ash dreamed about Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander, while Dawn had a daydream about Chimchar, Piplup, and Turtwig, in these respective orders.
* Ash lost a battle to both, Brock and Roark, who are the first Gym Leaders of their respective regions (Kanto and Sinnoh). When Ash lost to Brock, Misty offered to lend him her Water -type Pokémon, which he declined, though, rudely. Dawn offered to lend Ash her Water -type, Piplup, and Ash turned her down, though more respectfully.
* When Ash and Dawn have started their respective journeys, they both started to get in contact with their mothers early on in their journeys.
* They both had a rough start to their respective journeys, Ash in Kanto and Dawn in Sinnoh.
* Both Dawn and Ash saw a [[Legendary Pokémon]] at the beginning of their journeys (Ash saw {{an|Ho-Oh}} in ''[[EP001|Pokémon - I Choose You!]]'' and Dawn saw {{p|Mesprit}} in ''[[DP001|Following a Maiden's Voyage!]]'').
** They have both seen a [[Lake guardians (anime)|lake guardian]]: Dawn and {{DL|Lake guardians (anime)|Mesprit}} in ''[[DP001|Following a Maiden's Voyage!]]'', and Ash and {{DL|Lake guardians (anime)|Azelf}} in ''[[DP078|Pruning a Passel of Pals!]]'' (eventually, Brock saw {{DL|Lake guardians (anime)|Uxie}} as well).
* They are the only main characters that have battled members of the [[Elite Four]].
* Just like Ash's Pikachu, [[Dawn's Piplup]] was not ready to obey her when they first met. Eventually, they became friends.
** Pikachu saved Ash from {{p|Spearow}} inat the beginning of his journey while Piplup saved Dawn from {{p|Ariados}}.
** Both Dawn and Ash's first Pokémon have refused to evolve.
** Both of their {{pkmn2|starter}}s were able to defeat their evolved forms: {{AP|Pikachu}} beat [[Lt. Surge's Raichu]] and [[Sho]]'s {{p|Raichu}}, while {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} beat [[Kenny's Prinplup]].
