Default why is paul so mean?

Is it because of something in his past?

He was raped as a child and tries to ingnore it by repressing the memory in the form of anger.

maybe his socks are too tight, or maybe his head wasn't screwed on just right. Point of the matter is, hey, maybe the show needs actually mean characters, instead of the same cheerful people the twerps meet every episode. Paul's personality smells more of producers trying to attract epople to the show then a repressed childhood event.

I love that he's mean. I was getting sick and tired of EVERYONE in the world (not counting organizations) being really really nice to their Pokemon. Paul being so cruel adds realism to the show.

That too, but also Ash needs a rival in every episode. Mainly it's Gary, but since he rarely shows up Ash need a rival that's usually seen. And it makes the show more interesting.
P.S. I hate Dawn!

I hate Dawn as well! The only true main girl is Misty. But she'll never be back full time so we have to settle with Misty wannabes. XD

Anyways, Ash does need some sort of rival and Paul has to be it.

Misty? Just because she was there when the anime was at its peak, everyone thinks that she is the cause of it and thus thinks that she is the best. If she ever returns long term, I don't think she'll make a significant impact... O_o

Anyway, about Paul. I now reckon he's for people to hate. Due to a lack of such people previously, the anime has worsened. Now, with him, apparently they hope to stop the rot and reverse it.
