I'm 26 now, why am I still here?
Cause max was a traveling companion. They had to be the least bit of friends for Ash to want to travel with him. Paul was just a rival that he butted heads with. The difference between Gary and Paul is that people seem to forget Ash and Gary grew up together and were childhood friends. Gary is a bit more relevant to Ash than Paul is.Er, then why was Max there? I don't recall them being friends or even interacting that often in AG. :x
Still waiting for Gary to be the one to discover Fairy types and troll everyone. huehue.
