* {{Hypocrite}}: He states how he hates the consensus that Flying types would always lose to Electric types due to a type disadvantage...and then subsequently patronizes Ash for using Chikorita, for no reason besides ''her'' type disadvantage. [[JerkassFacade He backed it up]], but it was still an egotistical thing to do, and was followed by LaserGuidedKarma (below).

* WakeupCallBoss: Ash got his first two badges without actually battling for them, and was able to use Pikachu's electrity as a failsafe (he ''did'' battle Brock, but surrendered before he got the badge anyway for good sportsmanship). Lt. Surge's Raichu beat them badly, forcing them to improve their techinique and truly earn their victories.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Is a lot more reasonable than his TortureTechnician game counterpart.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGirl: She a bit a ditz, but she's real sweetheart and even though her second match with Ash had taken place outside the Gym, Whitney still accepted her defeat as official and awarded Ash the Plain Badge.

Added DiffLines:

* WorfHadTheFlu: Ash's Pikachu was only to defeat Drake insanely powerful Dragonite after it had already battled his Charizard, Squirtle, Tauros in a row and was visibly exhausted.


* DidNotThinkThisThrough: As a gym leader, you'd expect him to have some understanding of the mechanics of stone evolution, namely that once Pikachu evolves into Raichu its moveset is stunted.



* KnightOfCerebus: No mistake, Sabrina was the first antagonist to appear as a genuinely ''evil'' and dangerous threat to Ash and his friends.

to:

* KnightOfCerebus: No mistake, Sabrina was the first antagonist to appear as a genuinely ''evil'' and dangerous threat to Ash and his friends. Telling is how it took three episodes for Ash to get a badge from her and even then it was the typical "gesture of thanks", when Pikachu still struggled to put a dent in Kadabra. Even Blaine - whose pokemon are meant to be stronger than Sabrina's - was beaten fairly in only two episodes.


Added DiffLines:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Her little brother is downright obnoxious and she's the only person who can keep him in line.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: He's extremely supportive of Ash, giving him pointers on how to pass the trials needed to qualify for his own gym and warning him when he was about to break the rules.

* ParentsAsPeople: A surprisingly good example - when he's not being neglectful or just plain stupid, he can actually be a thoughtful and loving father. For instance, according to Brock ''he's'' the one who gifted Brock his Onix on his son's tenth birthday - the two of them [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sat together on Onix's head to watch the sunrise, and Flint's Happy Birthday message made Brock feel it was the first time he truly had his father's recognition.]]

* ReallyGetsAround: [[spoiler:According to [[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation the novels]] by Creator/TakeshiShudo, her many children are the product of numerous marriages and relationships which ended in divorce. However, considering the fact that the novels were created prior to her debut in the anime, along with all her children having a clear StrongFamilyResemblence to Flint (with none of them sharing any real physical similarities to her), the canonicity of this is heavily debatable at best.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CanonImmigrant: Daisy, Violet, and Lily became Beauty-class trainers who can be fought at the Cerulean Gym in ''Let's Go''.


* StealthMentor: Blaine revealed it is not only a gym leader's job to test battle competence, but their judgment as owners of Pokémon, stating gym leaders may indeed disqualify trainers if they push their Pokémon past the limit.
