(I hate calling him Paul...dang, why couldn't they choose something more-suiting?)

When we get to Veilstone, will we end up meeting them?

What will their opinion on Ash be?

Will we discover a bad influence for Paul/Shinji?

An interesting plot would be giving Paul a sister who obsesses over Ash in my opinion. XD

And his parents counting on Ash to teach him the true value of Pokémon is almost a given if they turn out to be good people.

But giving Paul a backstory in which his family treated him like garbage and/or abandoned him as a baby/small child, thus giving him a bad outlook on life, may be interesting too...

What do you guys think?

I definately want to see how Paul turned out like he did.

Maybe he is related to Maylene since everybody in this show seems to be in a Gym Leader family. *Looks at Bulbapedia article* Her father is a gambler and Maylene doesn't see how she became the leader.... Wow, that could be one messed up family. Now I'll just make his mother J to finish it off.

The characters in the Pokemon anime never seem to have that, really, detailed backstories.

But from the looks of what we've seen so far in the Japanese episodes, Paul is gonna have more revealed history then Ash may ever will.

Or perhaps the anime will disregard Paul when they get to Veilstone?

Since he's already a Silver clone, they should just go the whole way imo and either make him Giovanni's child, or Akagi's child.

That would be quite interesting though.

Backstories don't tend to be that much detailed (though we do get to see the important parts, such as the reason for Misty's fear of Gyarados and why May disliked Pokémon at first) but many of the characters do have interesting families.

Probably, as pretty much every Pokemon Parent sucks.

Can't wait to see how Byron treats Roark. :[
