I think instead of a quote, I might just start listing the number of people whose signatures contain quotes by me. My goal is to be in ALL OF THEM.
I prefer Green first, and Silver second; they seem like the better rivals, mainly because they're dicks, unlike the others who are just too friendly.
Blue and Silver. :D

For me it's Silver, with Blue and Barry getting honourable mentions.
Barry was competitive and cocky as hell, but he was still a friendly guy. Gary was a cocky asshole which you have some of those two.
Silvers personality was a typical cliche douche bag.
Brendon/May are too nice.
Silver and Gary. They act all bad and seem like a person to actually be worth competing with. Silver is first, because he seems so mysterious.
You know, it's hard to pick a favourite rival because Blue/Silver/Barry are all so great!
So it's only really easy to weed out the lame rivals ALA the Hoenn ones. Wally is a frail child with a frail personality. Brendan/May are hardly rivals in the game, but I mean, they're just too similiar to Lucas/Dawn, with the exception that... Lucas/Dawn seem to, for the most part, be more interested in Pokémon Research than Pokémon battles [as Professor Rowans partners], and I kinda appreciate that.
So, for the other rivals:
Blue is kind of the ultimate rival character. While Silver and Barry are both very cool rivals, Silver is more of a bad guy, and Barry is more like a competitive best friend character. Blue could be seen as the, "Competitive best friend," type too, but just far more hardcore. I mean, dude beats you to the championship. To recieve the title of champion, you have to beat your rival in the final battle. If that isn't rivalry, I don't know what is.
The Best Rival would be Blue, He's actually competitive, his name is mentioned as a winning trainer on the gym plaques, and he's somewhat difficult to beat. He's cocky, and he's a dick, He's the first rival I went up against so I think nostalgia plays a bit of a part in why I chose him.
Silver is good character, but he's not a very good rival, He's ridiculously easy to beat, ive never seen his name mentioned as a winning trainer in a gym and he never beat the E4 like Blue did. but he's easier to hate or rather make fun of than Blue though, he acts like a bad ass every time you battle him and when he is beat he blames it on his weak pokemon which he never gets rid of. he doesent feel like a rival, I think of him more as a stalker, sort of like The team rocket trio from the anime, he just follows me around to stir up shit and never trains his pokemon properly or battles gym leaders.
Silver! He's so awesome. And cute. And hot. And his character is win. :D

I like Blue the best because Gary is modeled after him, and I always like seeing Ash try to beat Gary in the anime.
Silver got cooler, though, when he was finally confirmed to be Giovanni's son. I had been hoping for that.
I like Blue/Gary the best.
