A sketch of Pistachio from volume 8
Pistachio is a bit girl-crazy; he likes to flatter and compliment every human female he meets. In his first appearance, in Green-Eyed Bulbasaur, he vows to make Hazel fall in love with him. But Hazel has no interest in him whatsoever due to her love for Almond.
Pokémon seem attracted to Pistachio for some reason; not only is Bulbasaur madly in love with him, so is Chiko, his Chikorita. Bulbasaur is jealous of Hazel because Pistachio wants to flatter her and make her like him.
Pistachio and Bulbasaur can speak the language of flowers, and so he gives Hazel flowers depending on his mood, and Bulbasaur gives Pistachio a yellow rose, meaning jealousy.
