Why are people obsessed with Cynthia?

I don't understand the fascination with her character. She greets you mid game like every other champion, helps you out minimally and then you battle her the same way you do with every other champion.
Is it because you're able to battle her again in Unova? Is it because she was the first female champion? Did the anime portray her as some total badass? I'm having trouble understanding.

IDK. She is basically the female version of Steven, and nobody talks about that guy.

It's the same reason people like Blue or Steven or Lance. People just think Cynthia is a cool character. You don't have to understand it. Just accept that people like her and move on.

She's a hot blonde and her Sexchomp is the best.

But Steven is pretty cool...

Maybe it's because Cynthia was the one of the first Champions to actually be given a character as supposed to "I'm the Champion so I'm special" like Lance or Steven who are fairly flat as characters (Blue is both a rival as well as champion so he's kind of a grey area here)

I mean, she's cool and not easily upset by things and she studies mythology.

Plus people like her Garchomp and some... Assets.

It's definitely something different with her. As evidenced by...

There's more of a "fandom" around her, as opposed to the other Champions.

And I guess her having an interest in mythology over simply being "the best" does add a bit of depth, but look at a champion like Alder. That guy was like some kind of spiritual super-mentor to trainers and there's not much buzz around him. And although not multi-faceted, Lance was just a straight up good trainer. He handled Team Rocket.

But Lance didn't really have anything to him besides "I'm a cool guy who raises dragons and I'm the champ."

Also Alder is oldish so he doesn't exactly have the sex appeal that Cynthia has. :/
