Motivational-Shinji by NaokoMayumi Motivational-Shinji by NaokoMayumi
I know that many people will disagree saying "Gary is better!" and all that. But I didn't really watch Pokemon until Diamond and Pearl.

My reasons-Didn't have the channel on television, and the graphics lagged (the original series)

I tried watching it honestly... but I just couldn't.

Inspiration-Need I say more?

Made on a site... I don't remember what it's called ^^;

 He is a pretty good rival I'll give you that, but that is in the games, not the anime.

I wished he was the rival in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum instead of Barry.

IKR? He would have been a huge challenge considering how much of a challenge he was in the anime.

Cool. Do you have a team in your Diamond, Pearl or Platinum games?
Reply
:iconnaokomayumi:
NaokoMayumi Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, most of the way in Platinum. I restarted cause I wanted a more diverse and equal team.

Ah. I too have a team in Platinum. Also, I named my rival Paul.

Badass? More like Jackass. He's supposed to be 10 for crying out loud!

NaokoMayumi Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well it's my opinion on the picture... not yours... and he also has most of the region badges (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh, maybe Unova), so he may have started his journey the same time as Ash's. and the whole age restriction thing is screwed up. Ash is supposed to be like what, 22? 23? But he's still 10. I have my opinion, others have theirs about him. Not trying to sound mean here or anything.

Fair enough. I'm just saying I don't see what's so good about him with that kind of personality at a supposedly young age.

It is all about what happened in the past. Considering his brother Reggie was beaten by Brandon, he believed strength and discipline was what it took to be the best. But it wasn't, and during the Lily of the Valley Conference, he did explain somewhat why he disliked Ash in some ways, but after Ash beat him, he finally accepted defeat and accepted that Ash was a worthy opponent at that point.

When Ash catches up with Paul, before leaving he asked if they could have another battle, not only was Paul shocked but in response he gave Ash a casual wave goodbye and actually see a smile before he does so.

Fair enough. I did watch those episodes but I still don't think his character is good for a show meant for kids. I'm sorry but if I knew someone like him in real life I'd call him someone who's pretty weak-minded. Sure he has skill as a trainer in the show but other than that he's hardly impressive to me. That moment you mentioned in the second paragraph was the only time I felt anything other than dislike for him, but not by much. Still, you have your opinion, I have mine.

Yeah I guess that's true, other people have opinions that aren't the same as mine and I respect that. I am not trying to change your mind or anything.

I don't mind anyone's opinion, so sorry if I made you think that. I just get annoyed with Paul/Shinji too much I suppose.

Correction: the most JERKass rival of the Pokemon series. Silver or Hugh are far more badass.

:sarcasm: Sorry, this is in the anime. Not the games. I don't want to argue about this. Sure he's a jerk, but he's one of the rivals that is actually opposite Satoshi. I don't mind you sharing your opinion though.

Oh, I wasn't clear by what "Pokemon series" meant. I guess "Pokemon franchise" would've been more accurate for what I was thinking of.

I think Paul's boring, but that's just me. :shrug:
