    Alright, I'm offically confused. Is Brock coming back or is this new guy showing up?

    It looks as though whatever Nugai's role is, it's related to Ash, at any rate. I'm still betting that he's Ash's new rival.

    If he's the rival, why didn't they show Brock anyways in the CoroCoro scan? I don't know anymore, this is too confusing for me.

    I believe that the new person is called Shinji... Sorry if I translated wrong!

    Well, from what I can figure out with my limited japanese skillz, his name is Shinji....Take that with a grain of salt though.

    In any case, this new image of 'Shinji' is fuggin' creepy. For gosh sakes, he's got an adult's head with a childs body :/
    The way the poster displays the characters really doesn't scream 'He's a rival!' to me at all, especially since they're blatantly pairing him up with Hikozaru.

    Maybe the Brock on the official TV Tokyo site is a red herring? :/
    Or perhaps Brock is the 'Max' of this region, and isn't deemed as important as the 3 other characters?

    Oh... and the pink words next to him... it said " New Rival"??? or some sort of...

    Yeah. It is written that that New Guy is a new rival. Shinji is his name. It seems that he will show up in episode 3, which airs on next week. It is written that Shinji challenges Ash for a battle.. So he may be Ash`s rival I guess.

    I am unsure about the idea of him (Shinji) being Ash's new rival. As Gravy said, they don't usually display rivals in with the main cast like that. It really looks like he will travel with them, perhaps he is more connected with the Diaruga/Parukia part of the story...

    but.... will there be 2 hikozaru??? because if brock is still in the show and the new one is a rival and both are showen with that fire ape??

    Brock should b on this too, if hes in the new season...

    Aha! I thought he'd be the ep 3 rival.

    Shinji, huh? Why do all the main rivals have names beginning with Sh? o_O Eh, it's not a bad name, though.

    Guess Ash is getting two main opponents this season... I wonder if this is a result of the popularity of the May/Drew/Harley dynamic? The Battle Frontier is the first season where a main character's had two rivals right from the start of the region.

    According to another site *coughsPMcoughs* His name is Shinzo, and he is Satoshi's new rival.

    "Shinzo"? Sounds like a super villain. Or a magician, maybe. Hikari must get her tux from him! :p

    speaking of Hikari does she like playing dress up or what?

    The katakana for his name clearly reads Shinji, not Shinzo. =/ That site mixed it up. And "Raibaru" does have a question mark, so who knows.
