N bland? Really? I never got that. I personally find him to be one of the most interesting characters in the Pokémon universe. It has always be the consensus among many trainers that Pokémon are meant to battle and then we have N that sees things completely differently and thinks that forcing Pokémon to fight is as bad as humans fighting. I like the guy.
I already explained this a bunch of times, without Plasma he would be bland imo that why when I wished if he ever appeared in the anime he needed Plasma and my main thing for calling him bland is his deisgn, it screams " LOVE ME! " I'm not a fan of that type of designs, unless the personality is good enough to counter that which to my taste atleast it doesn't I'm not going to say he doesn't at all because his fans will jump and out and say that he does (damn I said it).
