    Serena could meet Ash after arriving in Luminoise. She reveals she's been a trainer for quite some time and mainly had a lot of experience before she become a trainer using the family Rhyhorn. Revealed to own a Gogoat who she controls very well due to the experience with Rhyhorn because they have similar frontal battling styles.

    Honestly, it's hard to see any of the XY crew as serious rivals without a personality transplant. Tierno, Shauna and Trevor aren't striving for the same thing as the player in-game nor do any of them seem competitive like Georgia despite not going by the rival rulebook definition. I don’t like to use the term rival for them anyway since they’re a bunch of cute dorks being friends and starting their journeys together and occasionally testing each other’s skills in battle for fun. I don't see any of them being mains and if it's not Serena or Calem then I think we'll get an OC rival.

    The main rival will most likely be an anime-only character whose design and personality are somewhat similar to previous main series rivals.

    BW shown that the writers just can't clone Paul and frankly, Trip was the worst rival yet. Just from the vague character descriptions, I can see Trevor potentially being a good rival.

    So it seems the most anticipated will either be

    Conway-style: clever, cunning, witty
    Or
    Stephan-style: friendly, big-bro-ish, reliable

    No past rivals, especially Gary. I want another anime-exclusive rival, but to be get better treatment like Paul than Trip.

    I wouldn't mind this either! I actually liked Cameron. Maybe he should have been introduced earlier in the series.

    I want a rival like Gary (arrogant and cool) but a girl.

    Gary did have the most character development off any character.
    plus Green was my favorit game rival.

    I'd like a good, serious, female rival. A personality like that of Georgia, perhaps. I'd like this role to be taken by Serena.

    I'd like the new main rival (if there is one) to be very competitive but also quite friendly. And another thing... not a newbie as a main rival, please! He could very well be a secondary rival.
    Signature in progress... please wait.

    I hope for him to have a competent, serious female rival. I don't really want it to be Serena as I'd prefer her to travel with Ash, but I wouldn't be that upset if she was.

    I prefer the rival in the games,

    I really don't want another anime only rival, or at least another Paul-like rival. Trip was a horrible rival, easily the worst one out of all of the series and it proved that they couldn't really capture lightening in a bottle twice. Out of the video game rivals, I think that Trevor could make for a decent rival, so I wouldn't mind him being the main rival. Serena being a serious and competent rival does sound appealing since Bianca was just a complete joke, but I'd rather see her in the main cast. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing them go the AG route with not Ash not having a rival. They honestly should have done that with BW, especially when Ash's rivalry with Trip was practically nonexistent, and he could still make progress in his journey without a rival. That probably isn't too likely, but I'd be okay with it if they did that.

    Yeah, both were really great rivals, specially Masato Kouhei. His battle against Satoshi at the league was short, but great, even with that shitty excuse the writers gave to make Satoshi win. Trick Room is my favorite gimmicky style of battling in the games, I loved seeing a cool character like him using a TR team. I'd really dig another clever rival like him.

    A rival like Naoshi (but way more developed, of course) would be great too. I really liked his choice of Pokémon, either pretty and majestic Pokémon or music-related like Korotock. Plus, he was an adult, we don't have adult rivals often.

    I could see Trevor become a Conway-esque rival. I liked Conway, someone who really thinks about his moves and strategies during battles.

    Loved Naoshi's Sound and Nature motif, he was seriously the best DP rival next to Kouhei. Horribly underused, would be awesome to have a rival like him in XY.
