Personality and characteristics: I think it looks better that way.
==Personality and characteristics==
Weezing was shown to be extremely loyal to James, caring about him a great deal and only taking orders from him. In ''[[EP017|Island of the Giant Pokémon]]'', as a Koffing, it refused to attack Ash's Pokémon on {{MTR}}'s orders, simply because he was not James. Both Koffing and Ekans were very sad about being separated from their Trainers, and were happily crying upon being reunited with them. Also, in that episode, when Meowth orders Koffing and Ekans to attack Ash's Pokémon, they refuse, and they revealed that "Pokémon not bad guys! Pokémon do bad things because masters bad!" This shows that while Weezing and Arbok have strong bonds with their trainers, they never see themselves or any other Pokémon as villainsbad guys; they only carry out evil deeds out of obedience to their Trainers. In ''[[EP031|Dig Those Diglett!]]'', Koffing's evolution into Weezing was triggered simply by James's emotional tears. The only time Weezing refused to obey its Trainer was in ''[[EP047|A Chansey Operation]]'', where it refused to attack a {{p|Chansey}} because of how it cared for it during its operation from an injury that was caused from Team Rocket's scheme of stealing a group of Pokémon from a Pokémon Center going wrong. This also shows that Weezing will show a great deal of gratitude to anyone who helps it from any form of circumstance. As seen in ''[[EP033|The Flame Pokémon-athon!]]'', even though Weezing will only obey James, its loyalty does extend to the team as a whole, and it will readily protect anyone it considers an ally. It demonstrated this by stepping in when Arbok was surprised by {{p|Ponyta}}'s flames and retaliating with {{m|Smog}}, even though this proved to be a bad idea when the flames ignited the Smog.
Weezing is also shown to be very emotional, especially in situations when it was either seperated or forced to be seperated from James. In ''[[EP017|Island of the Giant Pokémon]]'', when it was a Koffing and seperated from James, it became visibly upset (even changing its natural happy facial expression to worrisome) when [[Ash's Bulbasaur]] told them that their trainers abandoned them, and it and Ekans cried desperately with [[Ash's Pikachu]] trying to cheer them up. In ''[[EP069|Lights, Camera, Quacktion]]'' both Weezing and Arbok got depressed for being rejected as the main characters in the movie. It was only with James's and Jessie's help that they got over it. On their last appearance, in ''[[AG006|A Poached Ego!]]'', they were reluctant in leaving Jessie and James, and when they did, they were in tears about it.
Weezing could be seen as extremely powerful in the [[M01|first movie]], as [[Nurse Joy]] and {{OBP|Miranda|M01}} said more than once that only the stronger Pokémon with the most exceptional Trainers could face the storm. Yet, it was Weezing who brought Team Rocket to [[New Island]].
