It's as the title says!
If you read my blog here, you'll see a few reasons why I love Shinji-kun. <3
Sorry shinjilover i guess i cant post in this since im a dude ! v_v
Well, how about anything you like in a non-love way?
i like that he's serious and not all happy like the other characters
He has much more depth than other rivals, and it's a nice change from twits like Ritchie and Morrison.
He has strong pokemon. He could easily beat all the gym leaders in kanto and jhoto and hoen. I don't know about sihno. Their kind of hard.
I'm agreeing with Kenji on this one. More depth.
He's serious and not all happy-cheery as all other rivals. He's my favorite rival to Ash.
He's hot. He's cold and nasty, mmmm... <3
I agree completely, ii kanji... Shinji is HOT. ♥
I actually find Shinji to be one of the most realistic characters in Pokemon. As others have already mentioned, he's not irritatingly happy-go-lucky-- and he also proves a valid point that not all trainers love their Pokemon. Shinji breaks the mold, which makes him more interesting.
