Why does Chaozu like Tenshinhan?

Post by Kid Buu » Sun Apr 20, 2014 8:41 pm

Chaozu emits immense disgust at Kuririn's lack of hair, so how can he enjoy Tenshinhan's presence who has a mutual trait?

Trainers with badges always can control their Pokémon. So can Tenshinhan.

Tenshinhan is natural

Krillin is a fraud, and Chaozu iis disgusted by his denial of this fact

If we go by pokemon logic then chaozu wouldn't like the turtle school students because water types can learn ice moves which they're weak against

So kriillin is a squirtle while chaozu is like a pidgey/starly/fletchling


Tenshinhan though? He's a motherflippin, honest to god Staraptor

I always thought Chaozu and Tenshinhan's relationship seemed a little homoerotic.

I think Chaozu is more of a Psychic-type.

Puar is more of a flying-type IMO.

Has there been an origin story given out as to why Tenshinhan and Chaozu love each other so much? It seems like it never gets elaborated on.

As far as I know there's never been anything like that. There needs to be, though.
