As you know , A lot of people is unsatisfied with Trip! (Including me)
So Tell us , The Type of Rival you people would prefer ???
Also how many Rival you would prefer for Ash ???
My Ideal Rival
-1) A ''Cheren'' Like Rival! His Friendship with Ash is similar to Ichigo & Uryu(Bleach)!-2) A Cute rich Girl with Similar Personality & Background as Lady Plantina Blatiz(Pokemon Adventure)!-3) A Tomboyish Tsundere Rival ! She's hot temper & Really violent & Offensive but Kind & Caring ! She's from a fighting Temple and It want to rise that Temple's reputation by becoming a E4 Champion.
She has habit of hitting & Using Submission Move on People who piss her off (Mainly Ash Who does it Unknowingly). later her first Pokemon reveal to be a Blaziken.
At first She Think Ash as a Werid Boy! But Later she develop a Crush on Ash which is a Common Knowledge to Everyone except Ash!-4) A Handsome Delinquent from a Bicycle Gang ! He & He's gang used to bully some Kids from a sudden area!
However After Ash defect him , He disband his Bicycle gang and start a Pokemon Journey to get revenge on Ash!
He hated Ash at first and he was a very rude trainer. But Slowly He Start to change into a good person with his various encounter with Ash.
He also manage to get rid of his hate for Ash as well however He never admit that he now like Ash or He friend with him!
Ash & He has a Fierce Battle in League Where He admit to himself that deep inside he always admired Ash.
After the Battle , He sightly punch Ash telling that He wouldn't forgive Ash if he lose's the next Battle because the Only person who will suppress Ash is Him!So , WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE THINK ???-5) A Main Superior rival who is 2 or 3 year older then Ash. He's So powerful that he can intimidate people just by his reputation. He achieve Everything that Ash achieve & much more.
It's said that He defected Pyramid King Brandon & his Legendary Golam's without losing a single pokemon (or with just One Pokemon).
He make his first actual physical appearance in the Middle of the Series ! However Ash will learn about him & His incredible Skill from various trainer !(including Gym leader)
He's a complete Battle-freak and all he wants is A Battle that can make his Blood boil! Unlike other main superior Rival , He's Interested in Ash & Believe that Ash is the only one who can be he's equal!
That why He's Want Ash skill to grow further because he think that Ash might be the one who can give him the Blood boiling battle he ever wanted!
He very good-looking & Incredibly popular among girls !
If I was in-charge then Those would be Ash's Rival!
So , Tell me you Idea!!!
