...Tropers make you realize that your favorite Pokémon rival has zero personality and that you don't even know why you like them. DARN YOU, TV TROPES!! It really will ruin your life!

I still like Wally anyways.

    Don't listen to TVTropes. Usually articles are pretty biased, since anyone can put in whatever they want. (That, and boiling everything down to bare-boned tropes takes away a lot of the creativity and spirit of something, imo.)

    I think Wally has a ton of personality - he's a sheltered sick kid with confidence issues, who grows through your mentorship, and ends up becoming an independent and more confident person.

    Actually TVT thrives off of subjectivity and bias. It doesn't want to make an informative summary of a work: it just wants you to have a fun time reading the summary.

    TVT was never intended to be a writer's tool: it was a creatively designed catalogue. People were supposed to only trope because let's face it, it was fun. The thing is that a lot of people got carried away and things don't always work out as intended.

    But yeah you really shouldn't rely on TVT for your opinions. I made the same mistake back when I was a new troper.

    Wally has a personality, his character was just not seen enough for it to develop properly. If hey'd taken out May/Brendan and had Wally in from the beginning, that would have given him a chance to grow as a character and get real development.

    say whaaaaaaaat

    Tropers are allowed far more liberty in explaining something, yes, but saying that they are in any way more informative than Wikipedia is delusional at best. Style does not mean accuracy or reliableness.

    Yeah, the addition of Brandon/May was really, really exceedingly unnecessary. Like the extra "exceedingly" in the sentence before this one.
