I watch pokemon D/P. and when I first saw paul, I liked his attitude. pretty cool.

But, I'm planning on making a manga about a person, who has to have the exact same nature as Paul. I'm sorry it's very hard to describe it. Can you guys help me?

What's paul's personality like? What would he be like if he were on a date? Do youy think he should have a girlfriend? (hehehehe)

please describe his nature!!

Most characters in the anime can be described by one or two word archetypes.

Ash: Overambitious idiot
Dawn: Token female
Brock: Pervy sage
Jessie: Evil chick
James: Girly man
Meowth: That thing with the really frickin' annoying voice.

And Paul: Total d*ck.

Are you kidding? Paul has the distinction of being the most one-dimensional character on the entire show. 'Flat-out d*ck' encompasses his entire persona, and more.

No, I'm not kidding, I kinda like paul, but it's very hard to describe him in adjectives.

Fine...

Mean
Jerk
Selfish
Unlikeable
Ash's foil

That's seriously everything there is to Paul. He's made to be entirely unlikeable, no matter how unrealistic his character is. It's a children's show, making believable characters isn't the first priority.

LOL, hahahahahaha. But, I feel so bad for that poor little chimchar, it's just a baby, you cant expect it to be strong!

I didnt think you guys would dislike paul. I kinda like him, he's a much better trainer than ash, I hate Ash. I dont like people who brag.

Paul just wants the strongest and releases the weak, who if trained properly, could be very powerful. Paul is ignorant.

Yeah, really. Paul doesn't even bat an eye when he releases a Pokemon. "It was weak". Um...all Pokemon are when they first start out (not counting legendaries). You have to work at it and make it stronger through the training. That's the fun of Pokemon. Watching it grow and get stronger.

Of course he's a better trainer than Ash. A retarded monkey is a better trainer than Ash. It's the main reason that I wish the anime was about Red from Poke Special. Now he's a badass trainer. Actually, pretty much everyone in Special is a good trainer...

Look, Paul was made to be an unlikeable character. He's an uncaring selfish jerk who cares only for himself, and he's so one-dimensional that even the aforementioned description would be reading too much into his character.

And that is why I don't watch the anime.

EDIT:

Actually, some Pokemon are just plain screwed to start out with. You can't tell me that an Adamant Abra with 0 Speed and SpAtk IVs has any hope as a battler.

Did paul already tried training chimchar? Then chimchar wasnt really getting any better?

You want to know why Chimchar continued to suck? His trainer. Chimchar was depressed and just had no will to fight for Paul. I am sure we'll see that change with Chimchar fighting for Ash.

Not to mention Paul fails as a trainer. I mean, seriously, using Dig on an Onyx that probably knows Earthquake? Uh, no.

Not saying Ash is any better. Iron Tail fails, and Aipom can't Focus Punch without a sub (just like everyone else).

I have a feeling that chimchar would come back to paul.(I know it's stupid, but think about it.) It just wanted pauls approval, he may want his chimchar back, and chimchar may be one of the only ones to make paul a nicer guy!

That... is just stupid. Think of Paul as an abusive parent, as that is as accurate a description of his relationship to his Pokes as any. Consider you were in Chimchar's place, and that you were abused and abandoned. Why the HELL would you want to go back to that? And why would you go back to someone who threw you on the streets for being weak?

Of course, didn't you see the way chimchar looked at paul? Those puppy dog eyes, shows that it wants approval, he'd probably show that same attitude to ash every time he loses a battle, but I have a feeling that he'll come back, and chimchar may play a significant role in paul's life, he could make paul nice.Despite the abuse, Chimchar is still showing paul affection. Maybe chimchar has figured out why pauls so mean.

Abusive parent, don't you ask yourself why he's that way, What's his past life, was he teased for having a weak pokemon or something.He may be the key of making paul a nice kid again.

I don't like Paul, but he's a pretty good character for the show. I'm just tired of Ash and Brock, they're both annoying. lol

That's a good point, despite the fact that Paul put down Chimchar a lot, Chimchar still had strong feelings for Paul. Usually children of abusive parents always try to make themselves look good or worthy in the eyes of their parents, it's pretty common.
