Like Brendan, he played no role in the anime, despite being a main character in the games. Similarly, his only appearance in anime is a brief cameo, in the original Japanese opening of The Legend of Thunder! (A New Oath), where he was shown with his Nidoking defeating Jimmy.
Paul seems to be based on Silver, in appearance and personality. He also has most of the Pokémon as Silver’s manga counterpart. It is unknown if Paul has ever met him, Jimmy, or Marina. However, seeing as all four of them competed in the Johto League before Ash and Vincent did, this could be the case.
