Could Paul be scared of Ash?

    Ok think about it. Paul went the places as Ash (minus the oragne islands.) Heres the deal though What if Ash and Paul were in the same league (maybe kanto or Johto. What if Ash got higher status then Paul. Then Paul kept learning of Ash's success as a trainer and grew too dislike him more and more. When they meet in Sinnoh Paul feels just hate towards Ash due too him being scared of Ash's skills. Now I know Paul has beat Ash but Ash is useing a team he just got in that region while Paul is useing a mixed region team. Could he be scared for the final battle at the league? Or scared Ash could call over his "Oaked" pokemon too school him in the league?

    Wow, I thought this was gonna be the first thing said in this thread. No offense.

    Maybe intimidated, but not exactly scared, if you ask me.

    You do realize this is Ash we're talking about right? (This isn't me hating on him but this is me taking a look at his character) If think back at numerous points in the series, that one Sizor trainer with a lap top in the jhoto saga who watched Ash's Kanto League battles on the internet didn't seem that scared of him. Also numerous other characters acknowledged Ash's skill or luck in battles but they still battled him like he was any other trainer.

    In all honesty, I think Paul is just annoyed at him. I'd be annoyed too if a guy keeps bugging me over and over on how I train. You mean imagine this...

    Me: I don't chain breed pokemon, EV train, or check natures, I just look for appropriate move set.

    Other guy: OMG YOU SUCK!

    Me: *annoyed*

    Also, Paul's dislike also might stem from different beliefs. After all, not all the time people are flexible when it comes to accepting another's beliefs.

    I dunno, I'm quite scared of Kim Jon-il.

    But when Ash and Paul first met didn't Paul treat him sort of ok? Wasn't he just like "Hey are you a trainer? Lets battle" then Ash started rubbing him the wrong way and Paul got annoyed. If Paul was scared I dont think he would have challenged Ash to a battle when he first met him.

    You do raise an interesting point about the possibility of them being in the same league though! Has it been confirmed that Paul did them in the same order as Ash? Cus it could just be that they did the same regions but at different times.

    You raise an interesting point but there is no way Paul is afraid of Ash. Paul might be feeling somewhat insecure after his loss to brandon, then his battle aginst ash, which was pretty close despite it being 2-6 in favor of Paul. Scared is just the wrong choice of words, but I think you're on the right track.

    well paul just might be scared by ash for wining a few battles but may be not he has won a few times to but it could be ash what is scared but i'm just going to say that paul could be scared by ash.

    sorry if it does not make sense.

    It's a bit hard to be scared of a little boy with a red cheeked mouse on his shoulder, but i don't think he even knew about ash until then or he would of been more eager to battle ash in the beginning.

    Haha, not unless Ash was possesed again.

    Paul is rarely ever surprised though.

    No I don't think Paul is scared just annoyed. Ash is like a catholic trying to shove his pokemon training beliefs down Muslim Pauls throat.

    Yeah... right. Paul is in no way afraid of ash because to me, he's like Silver in G/S. He always calls the player weak and insults him all the time, even though he ALWAYS loses. Maybe Paul can be battled by a Lance-type guy (before all of you start saying, "he battled Brandon", think; Did that REALLY make him change?) His *** needs to be kicked so bad, that Ash feels sorry for him in order for Paul to change into a better person. But, before that happens, he will always keep insulting Ash and think he's superior.

    He probably wouldn't be scared unless Ash's team was along these lines:

    Otherwise, I don't think Paul is all that concerned.

    There is no way hes getting his oaked/kanto starter pokemon untill the next filler saga, he is going to pull of the same thing he did in Hoenn, so stop bringing it up.

    Paul is a pretty cool guy. He calls people pathetic and doesn't afraid of anything.

    I thought that applied pretty much here. Like the majority of people Ash comes across Paul didn't know who Ash was when he first met and battled him. He probably still doesn't know the extent of his success beyond what Ash and people who have met Ash told him. Even if he does come to terms with it I doubt it'll change his opinion on Ash much. He pretty much cemented that he has a better strategy then Ash at this point. Whether or not that will change is yet to be seen.

    No, I just think that Paul gets angry and annoyed with Ash because he's all for caring about your Pokémon and bonding with them, whereas Paul treats them like minions.

    No, Paul isn't afraid of Ash, even if Ash criticizes him about his behavorial problem or whatever.

    Ash scaring Paul?? You got to be joking.

    Paul has just brutalized Ash's entire team, while only taking two losses; he sure as hell isn't going to be afraid of him now. Matter of fact, it should be the other way around.

    Read this post by thunderblade12 before you start ranting about Paul being the Alpha and the Omega again.



    yeah ashs pknm are something ot be afraid of when you look at the niddy griddy, but i would never think that paul is afraid of ash, i think he just hates him, since he is so well known and has done things that not even his own brother (regi) could do. but he acts like he's just some kid that still has problems with controling and training his pknm...

    i think that he just hates how he acts so childish and yet he acts so weak...

    i really wont to see paul meet all of ashs other pknm and see how powerful they are...

    No Paul is not afraid of him.

    After nice wipeout he did with Ash's team, Paul has no reason to be afraid.

    If anyone who is afraid it would probably be Ash. Unless Paul gets a glimpse of the likes of Charizard or Sceptile or Pikachu (when the writers let him show off his strength), he won't be the least bit intimidated. Even when Ash beats him in battle (unless the writers decide to have him lose) I doubt he would be scared. Just doesn't sound like Paul.
