    Say hello to the fifth generation rival, simply known as...

    N.

    N is clearly working for Team Plasma. He can't be the rival.

    Brendan/May. The only problem was not completely evolving their starter.
    Second is Wally and Blue. I like them both equally.

    People who keep saying Silver was more involved in "the story" need to remind themselves what the main event in every Pokemon game is: defeating the Elite Four and becoming the Champion. Blue was heavily involved in this story; Silver, otoh, wasn't even challenging Gym Leaders. Silver isn't involved in Ethan's quest to become Champion at all; Silver has his own storyline, which is fighting his demons and learning to treat Pokemon with love and respect. Imagine the Johto games without Silver, and they don't change much- they aren't as good, but Ethan still get's first Poke, travels around, meets Lance, fights TR, challenges Gyms/E4, and his journey ultimately ends with a battle against Red. Now imagine the Kanto games without Blue: there's no tension over who gets to pick the first Pokemon in Oak's lab, no race to beat the Gym Leaders first, and most importantly, the climax is completely different, with Red beating Lance to become champ instead of his life-long rival.

    I can agree with people who prefer Silver because of his fascinating history, his evolving character, or personal journey, but saying his journey is more important to Ethan's story than Blue's is to Red's just isn't valid.

    I like Blue, Silver, and Wally, because each possesses qualities that I would consider important when examining a rival.

    I'd say Blue was the best rival since he forced me to be a better trainer so I could beat him, and Silver was much more complex of a character (and it was generally more interesting to interact with him than with Blue), but ultimately my favorite rival would be Wally, since his personal triumph was inspiring to me, and his personal message was, “You can do anything you set your mind to.” What a great message!

    Blue takes the lead with Silver in a close second. Blue cause he pissed me off time and time again, popping up when I wasn't expecting it, and Silver mainly cause of his attitude, made me want to punch him. Good rival.

    Silver was my favorite rival, no question. I liked Blue a lot too. And hell, even Barry was okay. At least he put up a decent fight.

    But Brendan and May? They were just pathetic.

    Brendan/May = WORST. RIVAL. EVER.

    Wally would have been pretty cool if he had been in the game more, imo, he wasn't in the game enough to truly be considered a rival. He was just some lame kid with a shitty Pokemon and then suddenly BAM HE'S AWESOME

    Blue/Silver are my favourites. Blue is just all kinds of awesome. I wrote a story about him actually. He is the epitome of a rival - every game after GS I've been thinking 'This is the game where the rival becomes champ again'

    I really thought Barry would be champ and I think Wally would have made an awesome champ too. That would've hugely put them up in my rankings.

    Silver was awesome because the antagonism between rival and hero really peaks with you. When you first meet him he PHYSICALLY ATTACKS you. Jeez. What a jerk.

    Silver, mostly because he's the only one with a decent amount of character development. From where I got to in my most recent run (you know... before the game froze on me fdhdgjdgjffhfg), it seemed like he was getting more and more frustrated at losing to someone he considered soft and weak. I actually cared about beating him; even Blue was just another obstacle for me to get through.

    Really, given that he was 1. raised by thugs, and 2. abandoned somewhere between the ages of 7 and 10 years old because his dad's a heartless jerk, he came out pretty good. Also, I have a weakness for redheads.

    I'd like Wally for the same reason, but he didn't show up enough. Wasted potential right there. Also, he's freaking adorkable and I want to hug the little guy because he's just that darn cute.


    Juffo-Wup fills my fibers and I grow turgid. Violent action ensues.
