Paul (Jp. Name: Shinji)

Hometown: Tobari City, Sinnoh
First Appearence In Episode: Two Degrees of Seperation!


Paul is a rather arrogant trainer who has just started out. From Tobari Town, he headed to Sandgem to get his starter. However, he is not a caring trainer, what he wants from his Pokémon is pure power and the trainers he faces to be strong. When he first meets Ash, he demands a 3 on 3 Battle, however since Ash was still looking for Pikachu, Ash couldn't battle, this warranted some aggrivation on Paul's part. Paul is also known to release his Pokémon if he deems them weak or useless


Paul has just started out as a trainer and has obtained the Coal Badge from Hyouta
