Drew is May's main rival as a Pokémon coordinator. He enjoys pushing her buttons, but gradually drops the facade and becomes much more respectful over time. He never lets anyone forget that they are rivals first and friends second.
Drew spends his introductory episode railing mercilessly on May, then goes rescue her whenever she's in trouble. Then insults her some more.
Drew also acts pretty aloof and cocky most of the time in contests, but he's actually generally respectful to his fellow competitors, except for Harley and (initially) May. He thanks Savannah (who greatly admires him) for a great battle after he defeats her in the Rubello contest, he praises Brianna (who has a crush on him) for her performance after she loses to May, and he obviously has a great deal of respect for Soledad, his rival who defeated him in his first-ever contest.
Drew's heart of gold really begins to shine when he tosses May a rose as congratulations for her contest victory...and then tells her it's not for her, it's for her Beautifly. He messes with her like this for a long time. Really, it's only by the Hoenn Grand Festival that he loses much of his facade, with Harley officially taking his place in that regard.
