    Blue and Silver both have good storylines, and eventually become badass. So i like them

    Waly doesn't give up, and is basically the teddy roosevelt of pokemon. So i like him

    Barry's got a manic, interesting personality. So i like him

    Cheren and Bianca have good character developement. So i like them

    Brendan and May are kinda bland quitters, so i don't like them
    May has boobs thought, so i like her slightly more XD

    May for several reasons:
    Cannot be rematched
    Never fully evolved their starter
    Abandon goal as a trainer
    Cannot be considered a real rival

    I think Bianca is the worst of them, due to her unbearable personality and the fact you technically battle her less than Cheren. I do admit feeling kinda sorry for her though, and Silver and Blue are anyways coming close due to their persistent jerka**ery.

    Cheren. I actually liked Bianca's character, but Cheren always annoyed me with his view of "the Champion should be the strongest trainer, and nothing else". He didn't even seem to change his views that much over the course of the game, either, unlike other rivals (Blue becoming a nice guy by G/S, Silver learning that Pokémon aren't tools, etc).

    All three Hoenn "rivals," if you can even call them that. They didn't even feel like they were in competition with the player character, and they showed up so infrequently that they were insignificant. There wasn't really any story behind them either (whereas Silver had his deal with Team Rocket/Giovanni, Blue/Cheren/Bianca/Barry grew up with you, etc...).

    I think Brendan/May are slightly worse than Wally, though, since they never even seem like they're trying to win.

    May.
    At least Brendan was showing some interesting characteristics, by being tsundere. (He doesn't like the player because he thinks they're weak, but eventually sees their potential and strength and warms up to them).

    I'd say May. She's so darn bland. Of course, so are Wally and Brendan. Like plain white rice.

    I really like Cheren, so I won't pick him! Silver's a good rival. He's interesting. Blue's a good rival, I just don't like him. Always with his smelling you later... Bianca isn't necessarily a good rival... But I do like her for unknown reasons. Hmm.

    Brendan/May, I mean look how few times you fight them and how little they have to show for it :/ At least Wally had a full team by the end and had a story behind him. Brendan/May seem almost like an afterthought, there's no effort there.

    Duuh, there's no question. Brendan and May were lame D:. Cheren and Bianca were good friendly rivals, but Brendan/May failed badly. The worst thing was that you didn't have a chance to battle them quite often. Only four times in R/S, plaah. They also didn't have nearly any story behind the characther - they just act even too friendly towards you. They also failed a bit with Wally. Wally was an interesting characther, but he had a bit too minor role. I'd like to hear more of him.

    I also didn't care about Barry too much. Blue, Silver, Cheren and Bianca are nice imo.

    Jumping on the Brendan/May boat as they aren't... really rivals. They are kind of a different type of NPC. All NPCs in Hoenn are, but their problem is that during the first half of the games they are hyped as the rivals, which is... a false hype that just dies down. They do not show much interesting character either, they are just your neighbour, sometimes act nice, and help their father.
    They really are a quite minor NPC. Specially compared to Wally, who was promising but had a lack of hype and screentime.

    And between the two, I say May as as the "rival" she gets the worse lines and worse character.

    It's because he makes you want to punch him in the face that makes him such a good rival. He makes you want to defeat him just you can wipe that smirk off his face.

    But... you do defeat him. Over and over and over and over. Out of all the battles you have with him, he shouldn't win a single one of them. It doesn't stop him being arrogant.
