    Default Who's your favorite Rival?

    I couldn't find one of these threads, so if one already exists, shut her down!

    Anyway, we've gotten a lot of rivals throughout the years so which is your favorite?

    I went off of Bulbapedia's list of:
    Blue (Kanto)
    Silver (Johto)
    Wally (Hoenn)
    Brendan/May (Hoenn)
    Barry (Sinnoh)


    ----

    My personal favorites are Silver because we see the change from a jerkwad to an almost decent guy.

    Blue - he was actually a threat AND had importance to the story (a lot of them only have one, or the other). While Silver has been the most story-orientated rival, he wasn't a threat at all.

    Rank of Importance to Story:
    Silver
    Barry
    Blue
    Brendan/May
    Wally

    List of Biggest Threats:
    Blue (Champion in 2 Gens, and Gym Leader in 2...plus regular rival 0.0)
    Barry (Say hello to his final rematch team)
    Wally
    Silver (I found Wally's final battle FAR more challenging than Silver's)
    Brendan/May

    Barry- His cockiness made me laugh several times
    Silver- Probably the coolest rival around
    Well, I’ll stay close without the sleep
    My broken heart is yours to keep
    So pull out the puzzle and every piece
    While I take all the gain

    Silver, because he has the most interesting story IMO. I like that he has sort of a "dark" past, which makes him a more complicated character.

    I can't decide between Jun and Silver :(! So I voted both xD
    Jun is totally hillarious and he was totally cafeinnized xD He makes me laugh so much xDU. But Silver...is Silver :(! He's the most interesting rival without any doubt, and I've always like bad guys as rivals :(

    My rank:

    1-Silver/Jun (I can't decide :(! I like both for equal :) )
    2-Gary (just amazing!! <3)
    3-Wally (Damn this boy is cute <33 I really like his story and his improvement =D)
    4-Brendan (Typical professor's son :( and furthermore he has not interesting story :( just bored)


    I support Pokeshipping <3

    Blue- he's the first one that set off the trend of naming your rival "douche".

    I like Wally the best.


    Silver I don't like. He seems like an angsty teen trying to be rebellious for cool points.

    Blue is the best, i played Yellow back when i allways watched the anime, and thought it was gary, so i was like "Wow! i'm gonna be just like ash and beat Gary all the time! this is the greatest!" in hindsight, Silver has a better story, but nothing can beat that feeling when i beat gary and was like "YEA! I'm gonna be a pokemon master!"

    It's sorta like a tiw between Blue and Silver...Blue was tough plus he says stuff that makes you wanna strangle him and Silver has a whole backstory with the whole learning to train pokemon with respect type deal

    Really tough decision between Silver and Blue. I don't much care for the others. Also, why is Brendan/May in this list and not Lucas/Dawn?

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    It shouldn't be hard to guess who is my favorite rival.



    Anyways, it's Silver.

    Silver and Blue. They actually both did something in the story - Blue became Champion, Silver had a character transformation, and is the son of Giovanni.

    I also liked how both Blue and Silver were like antagonists, whereas the others were just nice the whole time.

    Maybe it's because you never really had rivalry with them...plus you never fought against them

    i voted for barry, wally, and silver, because i couldn't make up my mind :( it's kinda funny, because i never really gave any of them much of a second thought at first (hell, i made it a rule to call silver "butthead" in every playthrough of G/S/C, hahaha), but now they're all my favorites.
