Also, lets start off with a topic- shall we?

Why do you like Shinji? Did you like him at first sight, or did he take some getting used to?

Oh, darn!

And I could have sworn that one had just opened. xD

Well, let's kick this club into action!

My reason for joining (basically, my whole first post from the last club xD; ):
I'd also like to join! (seriously, where is everybody?!)

Shinji is one of the DP anime's most interesting characters and my favorite recurring rival.

It's amazing how he seems to lack any kind of empathy with his Pokemon. He isn't perfect, far from it, but one interesting thing about him is that he seems almost innocently cruel. He really doesn't see what's so wrong about the things he does, which does not excuse what he does, but is certainly interesting.

I'm looking forward to his reformation, should he ever witness him change very much. ^^

I also love his character design, especially his outfit's signature colors. At first I found his eyes strangely out-of-place, but after seeing him in the anime and finding out what his personality's like, I think the eyes are just right on him.

Reiji is almost much love. <3


Michikusa has some really adorable DP character icons (http://michikusa.main.jp/dp-icon.html), including a Shinji!

P/Word: Rival!!!

I'd like to join, because he's one of my favourite rivals... And he's got cool Pokemon. What more shall I say? He... he... erm... well, I can't put them all in words, OK? ~LOL ^.^

As for the mini topic:



Why do you like Shinji? Did you like him at first sight, or did he take some getting used to?

Like at 1st sight. Or rather ♥ at 1st sight, whichever way you want to put it. LOL. K, so... basically cause of the way he reacts when Ash is there, ... his character, his attitude (K, maybe not so much on that part, but still a yes), And... goes on.

Rival!

Oh my gosh!
Can I please join?
Why? Well... I LOVE PAUL!!!

Gotta love the way he treats Ash! ^.^
You also gotta love his pure, unmatched srength!
One more thing... Purple hair is so awesome! Lolz!

Musapion, csisps 26, and Treecko Girl,

Congrats! You are the first three members of the Paul club, and you all followed the rules! Good job. <3

Musapion, loved the icon's. =3 Paul looked so cute! As did the rest of course.


I'd like to join, because he's one of my favourite rivals... And he's got cool Pokemon.

Omg, yes. The Best pokes everah! His elebuzz is beast. And the Honckrow is too. He is the most . . . idk. xD You really just can't describe Shinji's awsomeness at being a rival.


One more thing... Purple hair is so awesome! Lolz!

Yes... the purple hair. xD Or his hair in gerneral. Can't deny guys with awsome hair are hott. xD

Okay, as for my own topic . . .

Why do you like Shinji? Did you like him at first sight, or did he take some getting used to?

Well. . . I have to say I fell in love with Shinji's look, but hated his attutide. I kept thinking, 'Man, that guy is mean! Who does that to poor pokemon?' But, after awhile I did start to like him more; as I started to understand why he did what he did.

2nd November 2008, 9:38 AM
^_^ Yay, I'm in. ~LOL Thx for the 'credits' on describing him. :P

I <3 his Honchkrow & Torterra. No, wait. Put it this way. I <3 Paul & all of his Pokemon. I wonder how he'll be if Ash wasn't there, as in... what he normally does while travelling... Maybe not being so hot tempered? :P

Edit: PS: Are we allowed to post pics as long as there's credit? Or from imageshack/photobucket where there's no credit???

:( Hiatus from 3/11-7/11. ARGH! That means I can't see the updates in this club. *cry*

Rival!!!

I love Shinji. I have lots of fanarts of him and plan to draw more. Would you add me too the list n_n

Shinji also caught my attention when I saw him- I was like wow- I love his design ♥ and his personality ♥ (my little brother hated him though T.T How?! Why?!- but he did say it was good he could kick Satoshi's butt XD)

Why do you think Shinji/Paul is like he is? I mean he must have a reason for being like he is- although like Musapion said, he seems innocently cruel.
Alot of the ikarishippers beleive that cyrus is Shinji's father- I'm not entirely sure about it but it would make sense why he is like he is n_n

Ohh! Another new member! Hello hiddensercerts831!


(my little brother hated him though T.T How?! Why?!- but he did say it was good he could kick Satoshi's butt XD)


I loved it when he kicked Satoshi's butt too. x3

Why do you think Shinji/Paul is like he is? I mean he must have a reason for being like he is- although like Musapion said, he seems innocently cruel.

He had his heart broken? Parents believed in tough love? One of his family members/friends/pokemon died because of -insert accident here-? I honestly don't know. D: Although, I do think it's maybe my last choice . . . -shrugs- /some/ people become angry at the world when someone they love dies.

Awww it's the cute little cold hearted and lonely rival. I wish to join the club. Why? Due to Shinji's cute face he makes when he's all "leave me alone" and such. Not to mention his antagonistic personality he uses against everyone. (perhaps not much to his brother) He stands out amongst all the rivals in the Pokemon anime so far.

I'll answer the topics if I get accepted. ^^;

Poor Shinji- that's too sad! That could quite possibly happen in the series as long as they're not murdered or anything XD.

His parents could have been killed in a accident which was at the fault of Pokemon- which could be why he mistreats his own Pokemon. mmmm I don't know.

Totcot has some goregeous fanarts of Shinji-

Why do you think Shinji/Paul is like he is? I mean he must have a reason for being like he is- although like Musapion said, he seems innocently cruel.

I'd say... cause he had a painful past? Or maybe he just doesn't like showing he's actually nice and all. I'm actually like that sometimes, but not as "CRUEL", BTW, I'm not saying Paul is cruel, it's what other people say. ^^ But, hey... he seems to start to respect Ash & the gang a little teeny weeny bit more. Barely noticeable. ^^

Hmm... let's hope somebody good in making banners join here ~♥.

Something for you guys to enjoy...

Why do you think Shinji/Paul is like he is?
Hmm well we can always bring out the "had a terrible past and is letting it all out on the poor individuals around him" but then it's too typical. Maybe he was taught that way. (although Reiji couldn't have done it) I don't know it's really hard to imagine. Well at least to me. D: Seeing how Shinji's parents weren't home but his brother was (well it also depends if Reiji decided to move out and Shinji wanted to come along with him which does sound so cute) I guess it would steer towards a uncomfortable past with his parents. (I wish Reiji would've explained Shinji's behavior back in DP066-69)

Ah man I love tocot~ Makes the sexiest Shinji arts around. (or so the ones I've seen so far) <3
Now for a cute picture made by flowerwind (http://cute.sh/flowerwind/main.html).
http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg173/earthstuperstar/pokemon/fanart/battle.png

I'll make a banner for the club. I haven't done a club banner in a while so this should be fun.

csisps_26
4th November 2008, 1:34 PM
Nice fan art there! ^^ Yay, someone's making a banner! Well, I can see you're a mod, but it's a message to you: Welcome to our family of Paul fans! ~

Edit: Pics for you guys... to drool after you see. Joking. But anyway, enjoy the pics.

^ If I post then I'm just a member. I will not accept the respect as a mod so if you need to scream at me then by all means, do so.

Lovely pics btw~ I love Shinji's weird smile but him smiling due to joy would be a hella creepy. Agree? Disagree?
Here's an example of his "joyful" smile. I don't have the source since I remember a friend of mines showed it to me. I guess I'll take this time to look for it. In the meantime:

Awww. All the fanart and pictures are so awsome. <3

Welcome to the Paul/Shinji Club Rissychan!

Thank yous Sweet May. A banner for the club would be most appericated!

Yes. A Shinji smiling out of joy would /a bit weird/. But, nonetheless, seeing it would be funny and interesting . . .

Oh hey, whaddya know. Paul club! I've taken a massive liking to the guy myself, maybe for all the wrong reasons... still. He's pretty much the only rival in the series who really shakes things up these days, being the genuine jerk he is. I totally mean that in a good way, though. The series desperately needed a polar opposite to Ash to truly create some delicious conflict. Plus, a stick-in-the-mud like Paul makes for even better comedy relief, like his running gag with trying to catch Fearow in A Maze-ing Race! ... seeing as you just don't expect any kind of humor coming out of him. It's great.

Why do you think Shinji/Paul is like he is?

Possibilities are endless, but seeing how in canon Paul blatantly disrespects Reggie for his life choices, I'd say chances are good that it's a family ordeal, and not necessarily solely focused on Reggie. The conspicuous lack of a mom and dad in Veilstone City was rather telling, wasn't it? Chances are he suffered some kind of trauma/loss in the parental area, or perhaps even through another Pokemon. Right now it's still too vague to pick out one option and say it's more likely than another. Still, I like to think Paul's also all up in the sibling rivalry with Reggie, even if Reggie doesn't necessarily feel the same way (which it's been shown that he doesn't).

That particular topic has been of great interest to me lately, though. Enough for me to write fic (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=364756) with that as the central plot. While my mind's still fresh on the subject, I hope to add more to it!

5th November 2008, 1:33 PM
Welcome to everyone new. Sweet May, no worries (Oh, great. I'm such an IkariShipper that I'm talking almost like Dawn >.<) I won't flame you. ^^ Or you'll be burnt May, not Sweet May. Wow. That fan art looks awesome. I have to agree with Paul smiling for joy, he'll look... odd. But in the new Japanese opening -High Touch!-, he was smiling or whatever you'd like to say, but he looks nice there. ^^ Paul smiling for satisfaction/winning/rivalry is cool & it makes him look... hot. ~♥

Edit: Look. Eye candy for you guys! <3

I know you'll love these pics as much as I do. ♥-♥-♥-♥-♥

It's from Chim-charred! / The Scorching Hikozaru.

I loved that too! It didn't detract anything from his serious nature, but poked fun at him in spite of it! Brilliant. xD

And your fanfic sounds very interesting! I'll try to remember to check it out.

And yes, definite family problems, but hey, who on Pokemon DOESN'T have family problems? ^^;

P.S. I LOVE the pictures! Especially the last one. xD He just looks so good with a cocky smile!

Hm . . . let's start a new topic. :3 Just 'cause all the old topics we started are spread all over the place. xD

Which one of Shinji's adorable pokemon do you like the best? And why?

I'll anwser later.

Rival

Why did no one tell me of this club's reopening!? I demand an explanation immediately!!!!
... you guys could've just pmed or messaged me for permission to be an auto-member.

*subscribes*

Well, I'm Crystal Clair, Shinji's #1 fangirl and trust me, you don't know how hard it will be to surpass me.


Why do you like Shinji? Did you like him at first sight, or did he take some getting used to?
It was love at first sight. However, the first screen I saw of him was a weird one and I almost gave up at that but no, I stuck to it and eventually I kept pushing till I heard his voice, got his episodes downloaded in high quality and had a FULL gallery of him.
If you guys want, I'll post a zip of the pictures from the latest Shinji episode. I got almost all the frames except for the reused animation ones

As for ships, I'm either a ComaShipper or a ShinjixMe shipper. I also must say that it's not just his looks I'm going after, although it was at first. His personality where he can be quiet yet can get quite aggressive interests me and I'm attracted to it. I feel like I can understand him. And since I am in so much love with him, I can't stand IkariShipping because it kind of interferes in a way.

For good fanart - this girl is the best Shinji fanartist or the most accurate. Access the gallery by second link from the bottom. (http://ka7ru.web.fc2.com/ptop.html)

AHHHHHHH! Omg, you're the tenth member of the club! xD Okay, I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is too me. xD [I didn't even think the club was approved until I realized it was in my 'posted' thingie]

Okay, well, Crystal Clair, welcome! [P.S. PLEASE DO (ya'know, the thing in the spoiler tag. xD)! But, as before, put it in a spoiler tag. xD)

I LOVE the fanart done by her! She does Shinji so cutely. <3

Is Paul wearing a PoloNeck or a Turtleneck? Lolz!

Is Paul wearing a PoloNeck or a Turtleneck? Lolz!

Gosh that's what I think sometimes! I don't know if there's an exact term for what he (and loads and loads of other characters in the show) wears but the close would be a mock neck.

I often wonder what material his shirt is made out. I assume that his jacket is fleece although once I thought it was track-style. Believe it or not, I actually have a jacket that looks almost exactly like it except it's slightly different, has a hood, different pockets and is constructed a lot warmer, but the colors are exactly the same. It was scary the first time I saw it. It's Lands End and I'm sure that brand would be Shinji's favorite.

BlueDragonfangirl
7th November 2008, 1:16 AM
I'm an Ash/Paul shipper myself and I can't understand Ikarishipping but I respect people who like it. I've always liked Paul myself, ever since the first episode he's just intrested me.

Edit;

Thank you for letting me join.

Torterra, I suppose. I simply adore Torterra. It's kind to Grotle (well, that's off topic)... Then well, besides being a powerhouse in battles, it's cute(wouldn't it be cool to marry a Pokemon ROFL)... & yeah... there's more that can't be put into words.

Hobo.Melody
10th November 2008, 9:37 PM
No! People must post! xD

Which one of Shinji's adorable pokemon do you like the best? And why?

Hm . . . um . . . well. My favorite WAS Chimchar- but Paul released him after Chimchar lost. So, now I'd say it's Electabuzz. =3 I love it because I always thought Casey/Paul were cute together [from a story I read. . .] and so if Casey ever saw Paul with his Electabuzz, well, it would just be awsomely funny. xD

Is Paul wearing a PoloNeck or a Turtleneck?

Huh. Honestly, I think it's a turtleneck. 'Cause I think the jacket he's wearing makes it LOOK like a PoloNeck, but it's not. :D

Is Paul wearing a PoloNeck or a Turtleneck?

I'd say Turtleneck. It just looks like it. Really. It does.

OK, I've noticed, like Hobo.Melody that the club seems frozen...? *tumbleweed rolls past*

So... new topic perhaps?

What would be Paul's Dark Type if Honchkrow/Weavile wasn't there?
My opinion/answer would be an Absol (you'd probably be wondering "WHAT?") or erm... I don't know... ah, yes. I got it. Absol or probably a Tyranitar.

So... your opinions?

Hikozaru has the most character development and the greatest plight, but since it's not one of his anymore, I'd have to say Dodaitose/Torterra.

I loved how despite the stoic tough guy appearance, it had a kind enough heart to help out Hayashigame, despite Shinji finding it displeasing.

... And his psychotic Ringuma/Ursaring.

( Aha, I almost forgot about Eleboo/Electabuzz! ^^; I love its cute smirk and when it worked together with Pikachu. Faked friendship 'til it became genuine!)

I totally agree with this statement! I thought that if Shinji ever went to Hoenn, he would get an Absol. It just . . . suits him.

-Also, I guess I'll give the club the two Paul Banner's I've made. ;3

^ Nice picture! His smile, imo, is better in the new opening ~High Touch!~. We really need a topic here.

If Paul were to catch a Steel type, what will it be?
I'd say a Steelix. Random one. Maybe because of its look- uh I mean expression :p.

First of all, I made a banner for the club. I may make more depending on what happens in the future. For now, here's a banner which I used two pics from what the club posted. *got lazy*

Right indeed. Only more to the "nice rival" clip.

What I was hoping for a new ending however, was Shinji's theme. Although now that I think about it, I dunno if the cast wants to put up some antagonistic ending for little kids. Still, it would've been a funny one, right right?

Oh, yes. Rival ending theme will win it. XD Then we will see Paul/Shinji's point of view *inserts evil grin*. Or, maybe we will see how evil good he actually is. If an ending with him will ever appear, I'd pay to own it xP ;389;

Heck I was hoping the new single had something like that but didn't. Ah well hopefully he appears in Canalave. I wouldn't want to wait until Snowpoint. (unless he appears between the whole Mt. Coronet fiasco waiting for Satoshi and co.) I dunno I'm just desperate to see Shinji again...

Yes. I know, painfully awfully looooonnnnng wait. Yes, he just appeared in DP100, so he probably won't appear again until around... DP115 or so. Appearing in a flashback wouldn't hurt, like in Maylene's eppy. Or maybe a cameo (yes, cameo) like in "A Maze-ing Race", where he appeared for... a few seconds? That will help too, you know.

His cameo during DP046 was a funny one. Seeing him get angry enough to yell was pure lulz.

It pokes my curiousity into wondering if Shinji likes having fans or not. At least he'll see that someone around respects him. (since everyone else is all "shinji you're so mean D:<"

Hopefully Shinji did somehow manage to get it. That or I can say "leave it to Satoshi and co. to rain on his parade".

Seeing Paul face to face with an old rival (Gary, Ritchie, etc... <yes, I said Gary>) would had me die of excitement. You know, Paul's criticism, him suffering defeat :o and so on.

when i first saw paul in the anime, i'll admit i didn't like him. i thought he was a jerk. (a cute jerk tho...). i'm not quite sure how i got converted, but it probably has a lot to do with ikarishipping :) then there was what he said to ash in (i think chim-charred) about ash just using the wallace cup like paul used the tag battle. that made me laugh. in your face ash!

It seems to be a bit of a voice reel. Maybe it was the one he used to get the role?

Played over some music. Weird. xD

Okay!

From what I could make it out, Shinji was answering the phone ... or the door or something (because he said "moshimoshi?" xD), asked if it was some person (never heard the name before, not a character from the show or anythin' important), and began introducing himself as Shinji of Tobari City and that in the Shinnou Region, he was still among the fourty-three-- then he just cut himself off to go "what?!" and he got angry about something I really couldn't understand. ^^;;

... And he ends it with a "tsukaenai na." No translation needed, right, guys? xD

So, all in all, nothing really interesting, but it's funny all the same.

I'd like to join since I think Paul has been Ash's best rival to date, not only is he better than other rivals in terms of personality, he also brings to light a total other side to a pok&#233;mon trainer, rather than just the happy-go-lucky attitude of Ash and co, he shows us that not all pok&#233;mon trainers have the same sort of bond with their pok&#233;mon.

Plus, to top it off, he is loosely based on a all-time favourite game/manga character of mine, Silver, which is great.

Favourite pose has gotta be in the newest Japanese opening, his little smug smile, it really is Paul at his best

Favourite episode, hmm, tough one, but I love him in Riding the Winds of Change, I don't know why, just how he appears with his Weavile and Electabuzz and gets the Gliscor, it's great

XD I find it funny that he got 'Body Slam-med' by his Electabuzz & Weavile when Gliscor knocked both of them. He did not budge at all. XP Honestly, being a fan of his, yet I still find it odd. Too big of an ego, maybe? But it's his ego that makes him interesting!

His best pose? Like Pearl's Perap said, it just has to be in the opening High Touch! That I-will-beat-you-and-always-will cute smile of his. ^^

Hmm, we need a new topic, how about what do you think Paul's league team will be?

I don't think it'll be too much different than it is now, to be quite honest;

Torterra
Honchkrow
Magmortar
Electivire
Weavile
Gliscor

Or, ditch one and implement a water type, though, I can't think which one I'd like to see him with x__X

csisps_26
12th December 2008, 2:44 PM

O... K... my guess:

Torterra - Honchkrow - Electivire - Magmortar - Gliscor - Weavile

Not to forget Ursaring for reserve, but I don't see why he needs reserves, seeing he 'always chooses the best' when it comes to his on-hand team.

You sure this topic's allowed?

I didn't forget Ursa, I just, dunno, can't see him using Ursa or Gliscor anymore, I don't know why. We do need another Glis vs. Glis though, the best.

Also, I don't know if it's allowed, but no-one seems to be posting anything bar us, so we might aswell keep the thread on-topic in other people's absenses :]]

*waves hands* I'm here too! :)

What do you think Paul's league team will be?

Well, he's obviously going to have Torterra, he'll probably use Honchkrow and Magmortar. I don't know whether it'll be Electabuzz or Electivire, 'cause they've already shown off Electivire (with Gary). I like the idea of Gliscor vs. Gliscor. But he already has a Flying type and a ground type, so he could replace Gliscor. Possibly with a water type. I think he'd go for Feraligator. It seems big and mean and nasty just like Paul likes in his pokemon. Of course the last spot goes to Weavile.

And that is my opinon. XD

It's fine, don't worry, hope you're better now. I decided to start a topic, seen as no-one was really posting much.

I'm hoping we see him with a decent water-type in the league, I like the idea of a Feraligatr, though, I think it would suit him, what with it's slightly sinister look.

Shadow-saur
13th December 2008, 3:20 AM
Well if you want evil-looking you could give him a Huntail, but I don't think it really fits him. If Wake didn't already have a Floatzel, I'd say give him one and not evolve Ash's Buizel. Or maybe a really scary-looking Swampert. But all of those except Floatzel aren't 4th gen, so I'm not sure if it would ever happen.

Pearl's Perap

I'm hoping the writers actually give him a water type, saying this, they might just overlook him having a water pok&#233;mon all together.

My theory, as weird as it is, will involve the three main characters each going to a seperate lake with several other characters (gym leaders, secondary characters, rivals, etc) and each group will end up against a commander and grunts.

Other than that, seeing him own Cyrus would be amazing, as doubtful as it would be ;_;

My answer to both questions. Though it might be a bit before the TG plot, 'cause otherwise, it'd be hard to stuff in so few episodes. ^^;

Actually, since Shinji will appear in the episode after the next one in Japan, I assume that he hasn't already beaten Suzuna.

And I hope for a good animation director. Thankfully Shimura I'm pretty sure isn't doing it because she draws Shinji weirdly. However, Kinoshita (who's the worst) is still a threat.

27th February 2009, 1:10 AM
Do you you think Shinji got the Snowpoint Gym cleared? (assuming he did go there already) Do explain how—easy peasy or hard? Was he harsh to Suzuna or respectful?

I would say he has, because otherwise he'd practically have the others following him to Snowpoint City for however many episodes it takes before the main group hits that destination, and I can't see him being too happy about that. Wouldn't be the first time a rival's typically one step ahead of Ash. I have a feeling there won't be another Gym clash between Ash and Paul until Sunyshore.

Easy or hard depends on who Paul used against Candice. If he used like, Magmar or Ursaring (Hammer Arm and Focus Blast, yo), he'd probably wipe the floor with her. I think Candice's personality would annoy Paul to no end... well, you know, based on the games at least, and that would push him towards bum-rushing her with Pokemon with great advantages over her type (see: Maylene). I'm actually going to be writing that out in the future, come to think of it. ♥ But yeah, I have a feeling Paul would be pretty mean to Candice. Bubbly personality, probably love-love-loves her Pokemon, she's wearing a miniskirt in the freaking equivalent of Nunavut, Canada... I'll be colored surprised if it's shown that he did show any respect for her.

The post felt so spoilerish at some times that I felt like using an extra one.

Just finished watching his newest episode live on Keyhole tv which is the fastest way I could possibly watch the episode. However I couldn't take screenshots because the program cant pause and I have no clue if screeprinting works on it so I didn't want to take a risk.

Shinji doesn't care that Ash beats his Donkarasu with his newely evolved Mukuhawk. Lots of great frames with Shinji heavily shaded thanks to Iwane-sama. I'm glad Iwane did Shinji after Kinoshita.


I'm going to be skimming across the net for screenshots. First will be the low quality and then the higher once the torrent comes out.

OMG SO SMEXY
went straight on my ipod for my trip to the city so I can gaze as his Shinji-ness.

He was pretty awesome in the newest episode, even though Satoshi beat him.

I loved Iwane's animation, as usual. Especially that closeup of Donkarasu's eye!

A very good episode, don't you think?

Satoshi nearly lost too, they're starting to become more evenly-matched, I think. Now let's see if Satoshi can catch up with the rest of his team and hello, FINAL SHOWDOWN~

... though I don't want Shinji to leave after DP. Maybe he'll pop in every once in a while like Shigeru?

I want Shinji to stay as a regular or even better yet, replace Brock and travel with Ash and the next region girl.

^ I like that idea, as long as he doesn't lose his badass attitude, I'm fine with it. :p

Oh, and in your previous post, nothing's shown in the spoiler tag. Was it suppose to be blank? The one above "OMG SO SMEXY". ^^;;

Paul lost. At least Honchkrow gets some screen time. Iwane did the animation really good, as always. I too, loved the 'birds-eye view' parts. Shades on Paul. Yup, that was good too. ;) Oh yes, I use dub names.

It'd be cool if Shinji got a new rival like Silver being adapted into the anime.


Oh yes, I use dub names.

Shinji's returning again
And so is Jindai

IN THE SAME FREGGIN EPISODE and they will BATTLE EACHOTHER

I hope hope hope Jindai is Shinji's father.
And the episode is also going to be Shinji's first high definition episode and I will try to find an hd version of it when I can (and when it's released/aired of course).

Alright, spoiler tag is telling me to go to hell, so, uh, I'll just spam with spaces.














I totally hope Paul ends up being Brandon's son too. I mean, by this point there have been way way way too many underlying hints if one paid attention. The physical similarities, name similarities with Reggie and Brandon's Pokemon, the fact that Reggie has no Brave Symbol and Paul is PO'ed about that, and even smaller, less significant things I've noticed in the past... way back in Glory Blaze!, when Paul explained his first encounter with Chimchar, he had just finished up catching a Ninjask. Brandon just so happens to have a Ninjask on his roster in the anime. Iiiiiin the Japanese version. We've got Shinji. Reiji. Both names end with the same "ji" character. Brandon's Japanese name is Jindai with the very same "ji" character at the beginning. Paul's going to be battling Brandon with a Hariyama, which, Ninjask notwithstanding, will be his very first shown Gen III Pokemon, which almost feels as if it's representative of the Generation Brandon originated from (not to mention his entire team is full of Gen III Pokemon... until/if he captures Regigigas, that is).

Then there's the fact that Ash has already beaten Brandon and earned the Brave Symbol. Sure, it took 3 tries, but he did what Paul's brother never managed to do (and almost certainly what Paul has yet to do). Paul's treated this rivalry with Ash and Ash himself like a total non-presence for the most part, but if he ever learned that Ash had defeated Brandon (especially the cheap deux ex machina way he did so), theoretically that could be the one thing that would light the fire under Paul at last and really get him after Ash for the rest of the series. He may underplay it once he finds out Ash had to battle Brandon 3 times before finally winning, but winning in such a cheap way would have to tick Paul off somehow. That would certainly up the ante and make for a really amusing climax come the Sinnoh League.

And naturally, I want to see the Paul-Brandon interaction, because I can totally feel that, related or not, they would not hit it off very well. In a way, I think it's because they're way too alike (only Paul's a lot crueler). But it's a perfect father-son conflict, and it's been such a perfect build-up so far, so I hope the anime takes the opportunity to make this one really intense. Really, it amazes me that they brought Brandon back at all. Logically, it makes perfect sense considering how the games work. I just almost expected that the anime wasn't going to adhere to that... but this is perfect, and having Paul there is icing on the cake.

Unfortunately, after the next chapter, I feel like I'm gonna have to pause my Paul/Reggie/Brandon fic just to see how the anime handles this potential family matter before going on with it my own way. ♥ I pray these next couple of months go by quickly, because I really don't give much of a care for the episodes preceding the Paul and Brandon ones.

I drew Shinji as a real human when I was bored today.

For some reason, sketching and drawing are much more fun when done in pen.
And this is my best Shinji realism. The other one was weird.

^Cool looking fan art! You guys sure put in lot of effort in fan arts.
@Crystal Clair: Pretty good, but like Musapion said, a lil' bit older-looking than he is.

So... he's appearing next week in DP128. What do you guys think?

Hehe, can I join? Shinji honestly deserves the title of rival in Ash's life. I don't know why I like him. Maybe 'cause he's awesomely cool? He just screams "cool". >w< I like his dark personality. Especially his uniqueness to the average 'happy-go-lucky' characters/trainers/rivals who aren't any evil organization. A badly needed character in the anime imo. ^^

Do you you think Shinji got the Snowpoint Gym cleared? (assuming he did go there already) Do explain how—easy peasy or hard? Was he harsh to Suzuna or respectful?

Of course it would be easy for Shinji! (I love his Jap name!:3) Besides, he's awfully powerful and poke-smart in his strategies. Also-

He has a Hariyama and most likely a Nidoking. That, added with his other Pokemon like Magmar (with Candice at a type disadvantage) there's no doubt he'd win this one. x3

I REALLY hope Brandon is Shinji's father. It'll be awesome. SO awesome, it'll make Pokemon anime history. XD

Hehe, thanks! x3

SO FREAKIN' EXCITED for this week's episode. This is going to rock. x333 Reiji, Shinji, and Jindai? I think I might faint...

Also, Satoshi VS Shinji sounds to be a good two-parter!

Also, he just arrived in Snowpoint/Kissaki City in the anime. Last week's episode. He challenged Suzuna at the very end. ^^

HD SHINJI!!!! The width is a bit unecessary as he isn't that fat (thank god) but OMG Editting is so much more easier! FYI, the original screeshot had his hair messed up and his eyebrows miscolored so I fixed that.
I crop my favorite pictures anyway so who cares.

As for the Shinji content coming up, I'm a bit nervous and overwhelmed and I also find it ironic that 100 episodes ago we were going through a Shinji hiatus. I'm nervous because the more Shinji there is, the more likely they'll mess something up like give him a bad animation director like Kinoshita or in his case Shimura because Shimura Shinji always turns out weird.
If Shinji happens to be in this Handsome's episode, he'll be in five episodes ALONE here and he'll be in every episode announced so far at this moment.
I'm still nervous though. But I think that's only a sign that I care so much about him.


And I just realized, one of the things I love the most about Shinji is the impression he gives with his design. It's that quiet, cool look and something else deeper down that I can't quite describe but it comforts me. I picture him being the woodsy type and I imagine his family living in a cosy home in the forest. This of course is him in my canon because the anime did something different with Reiji and all, but I feel like sometimes I know him more than the writers. Maybe it's my interpretation of him.
And for some reason he comes off as very American to me. He seems so un Japanese that the only thing that should be Japanese about him is what he speaks, his name and the style he's illustrated in.

It's pretty awesome that we got to see both brothers more. Aha, Shinji got a lot of hair-flowy shots in these two episodes. xD Makes me sound like a fangirl to point that out, but ah well!

Everything looks so much better animated by Iwane.

Shimura Shinji always turns out weird.
I agree, especially in DP131. Good grief.

Anyway, like Musapion said, the hair-flowing scenes were awesome. I'll post some screenshots later when I edit the post. ;)

I would love to join in this club, I just love Shinji and how, like, bad he is you know.
Most of the time, people say that Shinji is rude against his pokémon and that Satoshi is a much better pokémon trainer, but untill now, Shinji hasn´t lost from anybody, except Shirona/Cynthia, but that is obvious because then he was to weak. The first time Ash will beat him, is in an Poké Ringer competition, where also Ash´s staravia will evolve.
By the way, has anybody noticed that the only clear similarity between Paul & Reggie, is their hair(colour) & eye brow?
But anyway, I really want to join this club

I like paul, because he's serious about battleing, and he has that sort of "bad-boy" appearance that makes any girl love him. i also believe that he's one of the most interesting characters. I also like Reggie, but not as much....
I think that paul acts the way he acts because he wants to live up toBrandon and Reggie's status. He's the younger one, and he wants to show Reggie and everyone else that he's serious, and worthy.

Shinji is the rival that got me back into pokemon. I don't think that this season would be anywhere near as cool as it is without him. He's truely something different and I'm looking forward to finding out more and more about him.

Hey, can I join?
Just like Madame Pika, Paul got me back into Pokemon, my first obsession in life. I love his bad boy attitude. He has a complex, dark personality, but I'm pretty sure that beneath the shell of that selfish attitude hides something good. I like his determination to be better than his brother, sibling rivalry is interesting.


I want Shinji to stay as a regular or even better yet, replace Brock and travel with Ash and the next region girl.
