Thread: Who is your favourite rival?

    Default Who is your favourite rival?

    Well, I really want to see who your favourite rival is, and why.

    I personally like Gary, as he seemed to get quite a bit of characrer development. But I also like Ritchie, as he is one of Ash's only rivals that isn't completely neurotic, a huge arogant jerk, or both. For me, It's a tie.

    Even though Gary is my favorite, I wish he appeared more. He was the right amount of cocky and arrogant, and I just loved how he taunted Ash. It's just a shame that he didn't have that many appearances throughout the entire original series.

    As for comic relief rivals, Barry is probably my favorite, even though he was a complete joke when it came to battling (having only one on-screen win for one thing.)

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    Bianca for the win!

    She has th best personality of all of them and has strength to back it up. If she replaced roles with iris the show would be 100x better

    This is choosing between entities (in this case characters) so I've moved it to the GF where it belongs. Reasons for choices need to be given.

    Trip, Paul, Stephan

    *looks at above post*

    And the reason is because I do.

    Bianca and Barry are both funny and great, and Gary is a cool rival. But I choose Paul, not because he abuses Pokemon, but because he was an extreme threat. If Bianca, Barry, or Gary appeared a bit more often, I would have voted for one of them.
    I have claimed: Staraptor (01/12/13), Shiny Stone (02/12/13), and Limber (02/12/13).

    Character wise I would say Gary, but as an actual rival...probably Paul.

    Trip!!!!!



    Nah just kidding.



    Paul definitely. He was like the complete opposite of Ash. He was mean, he trained his pokemon harshly, he only worked with the strongest, he was unsympathetic, and above all he was fucking good. His teams were littered with powerhouses. He trained his pokes the way a player does in the games (people don't usually develop emotional bonds with members on their game teams). Him and Ash also had the connection with Infernape, which would ultimately be Paul's undoing in the rivalry. Their pokemon also had rivalry's, like Infernape/ Electivire, Infernape/ Ursaring, Grotle/ Honchkrow. And Paul had his flaws, which were highlighted in his battle with Brandon. There was so much tension between Him and Ash, and it lead to in my opinion the best battle of the Anime's history. I really hope he reappears at some point, id like to see what he's been up to since he left, and to find out weather he ended up beating Brandon in the end.

    Paul is going to be hard to top. And they failed big time with Trip

    Paul had the best character arc, leading to a well-deserved karmic defeat that forced him to admit that he was wrong. Gary Motherf**king Oak is a close second.

    Generally I like Trip, Bianca, Stephan, Georgia, Burgundy, Luke, Montgomery, Kotetsu, and Virgil. But personally I love Trip.
