That's why I think he is better than other main game rivals. I hated Barry cos of his dumbness and the quotes that he says about giving you fines. Bianca just doesn't stack up to Cheren, Wally is too young to be a proper rival while Blue/Gary and Silver's personalities are too dark.
Take a look at this stamp I found on DeviantArt.
Yes, I knew he was a boy since the first time I saw him.
I'm just taking a break from a Pokemon as the subject of the avatar/signature. I'm showcasing Cheren cos so many people over on my other forum (Serebii) complain about him but I think Cheren is awesome cos I like his appearance and his personality.
