Despite the fact that Hazel and Coconut's rivalry over Almond is the focus of the story, he seems aloof to them and annoyed by their attempts to win him over. He expresses annoyance in particular that they are constantly distracting him from his Pokémon Trainer's journey, preventing him from capturing many Pokémon. However, he is also seen participating in events with the rest of the group, such as in Even an Arbok Falls in Love!, where he helped the others build Arbok a statue of roses to give to Wigglytuff.
Almond is close to Squirtle, who admires him deeply. Squirtle sees Almond as "big brother I never had".
