Clemont (anime)

Clemont is not very athletic, as he easily gets tired while running, or fails to do tasks that require physical activity like [[XY036|gliding with a wingsuit]]. Despite this, if the situation calls for it, he can have a reckless side, as shown in ''[[XY007|Giving Chase at the Rhyhorn Race!]]'' when he grabbed a rock, jumped in the air, and aggressively smashed the remote that Team Rocket were using to trap all the {{p|Rhyhorn}} and {{AP|Pikachu}} in a cage.
Clemont has some confidence and self-esteem issues, and a tendency to jump into negative conclusions related to him. An example of this can be seen in ''[[XY015|An Appetite for Battle!]]'', when, after losing practice battles against {{AP|Froakie}} and {{TP|Clemont|Dedenne}} due to its overweight state, [[Clemont's Chespin|his Chespin]] followed the smell of macarons from an [[Carrie (Kalos)|old lady's]] house. When Clemont saw his Chespin looking happy there, it did not occur to him that the Pokémon was only there for the food, and he assumed that Chespin had stopped caring about him. Later on, their misunderstanding was resolved and Clemont realized that Chespin would always be his number one partner. Because of his nervousness and lack of confidence, Clemont greatly admires and respects Ash, and is traveling with him so that he himself can gain more courage to try new things. He often tries to model his efforts after Ash, as seen in ''[[XY062|The Future is Now, Thanks to Determination!]]'', when he echoed Ash's promise to save Pikachu and managed to reach {{TP|Clemont|Luxio}} even though it was being hypnotized. In addition to Clemont looking up to Ash, Ash is very encouraging of Clemont as well, and habitually reacts much more kindly than Serena and Bonnie when his inventions fail to work properly. However, all three of them help boost Clemont's confidence. When he was feeling down about having been conned by Team Rocket in ''[[XY029|Heroes - Friends and Faux Alike!'']], the others quickly assured him that it wasn't his fault and that he had saved the day.
While he does not try to emulate Serena the way he does for Ash, Clemont is shown to have a good deal of respect for her as well. He mentioned to [[Grace (Kalos)|Grace]] that he was very grateful for the help Serena regularly gives him when preparing meals for the group - Clemont serves as the group's cook, and Serena provides dessert for his meals. In ''[[XY060|A Showcase Debut!]]'', Clemont was worried about Serena after the [[Pokémon Showcase]] and wondering if she would be all right, showing his concern for her feelings.
