    Character

    Burgundy can act bratty and obnoxious, but she does mean well and loves her Pokémon dearly. Her ultimate goal is to become a great Pokémon Connaisseuse as a result of her loss to Cilan. She also wishes to defeat him in order to obtain her revenge. Though, the reason for her revenge is often blown out of proportion. She is shown not to take criticism very well on several different occasions, particularly criticism from Cilan.

    Burgundy can also be slightly abrasive when it comes to her job, as seen when she told Ash to replace all of his Pokémon while giving only vague explanations for her decision, many of which were automatically wrong, such as calling Tepig too good-natured for a battle only to be blasted by Ember, and wrongly assuming Dawn's Mamoswine was lazy due to his heavy weight and size. Also, she can be too invasive with the Pokémon she evaluates, causing them to attack her. When speaking, she tends to use an array of French words and phrases, some of which are mispronounced. This may be her attempting to appear elegant and graceful.

    Though she pretends that she does not wish to learn anything from Cilan, Burgundy always pays the most attention to him whenever he evaluates a Pokémon. Burgundy appears to have an odd vitriolic friendship with Georgia, showcased particularly during the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup, as the two made snide comments at one another and got on each other's nerves frequently, and yet hung out together the whole time and occasionally got along.

    Why She Should Intentionally Lose Her Evaluation Job

    1. She is mean, spoiled, bratty, entitled and very rude, as she is mean, snarky and obnoxious.
      • As her personality states that she can act bratty and obnoxious, but she does mean well and loves her Pokémon dearly. Her ultimate goal is to become a great Pokémon Connaisseuse as a result of her loss to Cilan. She also wishes to defeat him in order to obtain her revenge.
        • Also her personality states that she can also be slightly abrasive when it comes to her job, as seen when she told Ash to replace all of his Pokémon while giving only vague explanations for her decision, many of which were automatically wrong, such as calling Tepig too good-natured for a battle only to be blasted by Ember, and wrongly assuming Dawn's Mamoswine was lazy due to his heavy weight and size, Also, she can be too invasive with the Pokémon she evaluates, causing them to attack her.
        • She is considered to be a Punching bag because she's too invasive with the Pokémon she evaluates, causing them to attack her.
    2. Her voice, while passable and tolerable for the most, is grating and Ear-piercing at worst when she is screaming.
    3. She can be wrathful, bad-tempered and has little to no redeeming qualities at all.
    4. Her valspeak gets annoying very fast.
    5. Her reasons for hating Cilan are very unjustified in a misanthropic manner, which makes her hatred even more pathetic and unnecessary (and sometimes useless).
    6. She can be a gross-out character, like in this scene where she tries to lick Ash's Snivy, but got her tongue vine whipped by it in the process of doing so, which is disgusting to watch.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. When she isn't screaming, her voice is tolerable to listen to.
    2. Although she can be snarky, annoying and irritable, she does mean well and sometimes has a caring side sometimes.
