Hugh has dark blue spiky hair that goes upwards. He wears a white and red training suit and black fingerless gloves. He also wears a dark blue riding pants that match his hair and some red shoes with black laces. Hugh also has a watch on his left wrist, and a white bag with a red half-circle.
Hugh is a loud individual, who often frowns. He considers Blake as an opponent, who usually does immature stuff and yells at him. Due to an incident in the past, Hugh wishes to become stronger to defeat all Team Plasma forces and bears a grudge towards them.
One day, Hugh came to a painter and picked up a Purrloin, knowing his sister loved purple color. Though warned by the painter to be careful, Hugh got scratched by Purrloin, who stole his bag, even. Still, Hugh decided to keep Purrloin as a gift for his sister, though Purrloin escaped and went to Aspertia City's school, which served as the Gym. However, the painter warned Hugh there was no Gym Leader, since Aspertia City was a place for workers. Still, Hugh managed to take Purrloin to his sister the following day, for her birthday. Hugh tried to call Purrloin and place a ribbon on its head, but failed. Regardless, his sister came to him and was happy that he gave her a Purrloin as a gift. Hugh was worried his sister may not handle Purrloin, but saw she did manage to take good care of it. Thus, Hugh pulled his sister away, since he wanted to battle her on a special field, even if they felt slightly cold. However, just as they had their battle, two Team Plasma grunts arrived and claimed they were inflicting pain on the Pokémon through the battle. They tried to escape, but the grunts' Frillish managed to grasp Purrloin. Hugh's sister tried to call Purrloin, but the grunt took away her Poké Ball and ran off. Hugh tried to chase after them, but was headbutted by Deino. Hugh was crushed by this event and blamed himself for his sister's Purrloin got stolen. On that day, Hugh promised to become stronger to pay Team Plasma for the crimes they did and would do.

Blake and Leo tried to sneak into the classroom, held by Cheren. However, Hugh yelled at them both for slacking off, reminding they were here to hone their battling skills. Cheren was angered and made the boys leave the classroom. Hugh reminded both of them they had to fight to the top, since about 150 trainers came to learn in Aspertia City's school. Hugh wanted to come back to the classroom, but was hit by Cheren's Snivy. Still, Hugh wanted to become stronger than Cheren, even if he knew despite being a few years older, Cheren was still his teacher. Cheren decided to hold a tournament, where Blake managed to defeat Hugh's Trapinch.
Some days later, Hugh learned the school would visit a festival and a choral competition. He was angry to see the girls cheering, since this was not about fun, but to teach them more about battling. After taking the bus, Hugh was shocked to see they were at the PokéStar Studios, and didn't believe they could learn much in there. Spending some more time at the studios, Hugh became even more angry, since he merely wished to train more to face against Team Plasma's forces. He soon changed his mind when he saw Whitley performing, realizing that while the actors had to stay to the script, the battles were real. He was also surprised to see Blake saving Whitley from the mechanical Tyranitar. After taking the bus back to Aspertia City, Hugh demanded Blake to stop using the Pokédex to flirt with Whitley. Once everyone was asked to go to the dorms and their homes, Hugh reminded the girls what Cheren said. The girls claimed Hugh was rude and should be nice to them, considering he had a sister. They also thought his sister was unlucky to have Hugh as a brother. This made Hugh furious and had Vibrava attack them with Sonic Boom. Leo calmed Hugh down, who noticed a locket on the ground and picked it up. Opening it, he found a chip inside.
At the dorms, Leo wondered if Hugh did dislike his sister. Hugh denied that and wondered why Leo was asking that and was reminded about the incident with the girls. Hugh ignored that and wondered where Blake is. Leo replied he was at his own room, which Hugh noted how nice it was to have a room of their own. Leo thought Hugh didn't like him, either, but Hugh ignored that. Hugh was focused on the locket, thinking one of the girls was searching for it. He placed the chip in his computer and found the "Liberation" list and saw his sister in it. Recalling his past incident with the Team Plasma grunts, Hugh started shaking, for that was the list of the Pokémon Team Plasma's forces stole. Hugh became outraged, seeing his sister's Purrloin was the first victim. Hugh promised he would expose the identity of the girl, who was a member of Team Plasma. The next day, he gazed at the girls, who believed Hugh was harassing them. To calm down both sides, Cheren dragged Hugh away.
