This Yamper is an electric-type Pokémon owned by Professor Cerise, but has more of a strong bond to Chloe.

Personality

Yamper is friendly, as he befriends Pikachu whom he met at first sight. However, he can be bashful and defensive, and won't be nice to those it considers as strangers or threats.

Yamper also has a strong affection to Chloe, and loves her the most despite her somewhat aloof attitude. According to Parker, Yamper will not accept any food unless it comes from Chloe.

Yamper also hates receiving affection from those who aren't Chloe as shown when he electrocuted Ash in "Legend? Go! Friends? Go!", which ruined his overall impression of him.

It is also worth noting that Yamper gets jealous easily, as shown in "There's a New Kid in Town!" when a Trainer's Pidove was being fond of Chloe.
