    Silver was cool, and epic and he had a nice backstory.

    I'd consider N to be the "rival" in BW, since the story keeps drawing a parallel and he's basically the cetral character. In that case, I'd say him.


    But otherwise... Silver. I like how he actually undergoes a noticeable character development during the game, and he has an appealing concept and engaging story, being the son of Giovanni and all.

    I voted for Silver because I enjoy all of the battles against him and I like how he's a bit conflicted and actually changes over the course of the game and he's at least not annoying like some of the others. I like the Pokemon he uses as well. The guy has taste.

    Wally! Only because I remember fondly the gen 3 games, and I always liked Wally. I liked how he had a ralts too, that was a cool Pokemon and he was actually a little different to most of the rivals you get. He was shy and sick and interesting in my opinion.

    I voted for Blue/Green cause he's just awesome. He was such a douche. I really don't know why he's my favorite, he just is.
    But I also really like Wally, I always felt so sorry for the poor thing. Especially when I always beat his Ralts in one hit when he was trying to show his uncle how strong he'd become. Wally also made me love Ralts and it's evos :>

    Never played against the 1st 2 Gen rivals, and Wally was a noob. May was decent but annoying. Cheren was alright, but something seemed to be missing. Bianca was another noob. So I chose Barry because I have no idea what to expect from the BW2 rival.

    Bianca because I adored her character and she had really good character development. Cheren was great, too.

    Although I really also love Brendan/May along with Wally, their personality and development in the games was really weak and they both needed more fleshing out. (Now, this would be a whole different story if we took Pokespe into consideration, but this is only about the games.)

    Silver, without a doubt. I love his personality. Blue would be second, because for whatever reason his dickishness was kind of fun. Barry was annoying as hell, Bianca was useless, Wally felt like an afterthought, Brendan/May was ridiculously shallow, and Cheren was a pain in the ass. I guess I'd rank that pain third, though.

    ... why do I like obnoxious rivals.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    Silver.

    He's just epic. He had awesome development over the course of the game. He's Giovanni's son. I still wish he had somehow evolved his Magneton.

    Blue would be my favourite rival since Gen 1. The main reason would be typical nostalgia, but what I liked most was having him as the surprise Champion to beat in the original games.

    It just made it more satisfying to beat him after dealing with his attitude throughout the game and his team was quite strategic for the old days of Gen 1.

    I voted Silver. He's the only one that I feel actually has an interesting personality. It felt like he was an actual rival, someone you were competing with on values as well as Pokémon. Of all the rivals, it seems he had the most impact on the plot and deserves the most recognition.

    Cheren and Bianca because they seemed the most developed to me. They have their own troubles to go through instead of just having a merry little journey while your ass is stuck saving the world like all the other rivals seem to do.
    You know what the trouble about real life is? There's no danger music.

    For me, it's a tie between Silver and Bianca. I liked Silver's development during the course of the storyline and he had more interesting personality than most of the other main rivals. Bianca has been the best rival since Silver in my opinion. She had such great development, had a really likable personality and felt so wonderfully refreshing in B/W. If N was included on this poll, I think I would have picked him over Silver since he did feel more like a rival than a leader of the new evil team even before the end of the storyline and he was a really engaging character.


    You found Hugh!

    i chose silver becuase i think he was the most interesting rival of them all, i mean, Blue/Gary/Gary Mother F**kin Oak was just a condesending asshole thoughout the game and never learned his lesson, but Silver stared off as a cold hearted theif, but with the combined efforts of you and lance managed to show him his mistakes and he became a genuinly nice guy. I mean his golbat evolved into a crobat, an evolution that requires the pokemon to be very attached to his trainer, and before this, silver used to berate his pokemon verbaly and physicly. and the whole twist with *SPOILERS* he is geovaniis son makes him even more of an interesting character.

    Also: poll 42 FTFW!
