Rival Pokemon

Discussion in 'General Pokémon Discussion' started by Chewiana Jones, Jan 4, 2013.

    Within the Pokemon games, there are some deliberate, obvious rivalries such as Zangoose vs. Seviper and Groudon vs. Kyogre. However, there are also less obvious rivalries. For example...

    Ralts is attracted to and energized by positive emotions, while Shuppet feeds off of negative emotions.


    Tyranitar destroys mountains and rivers when it rampages. Aggron claims an entire mountain as its territory, keeps its environment it top condition, and mercilessly attacks anyone who threatens its territory.

    Basically, post any ideas that you have for two Pokemon who would automatically come into conflict, even though they're not "official" rivals.

    Caterpie is a worm

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Zoroark and Stoutland...Fox and the Hound XD lol

    Seriously though, I look up some pokedex entries later and see what I can find

    Along those same lines, cat and dog pokemon (think Persian and Arcanine) probably wouldn't get along.

    Ahah pokemon eating pokemon would be a bit weird, wouldn't it?

    The best of all examples. And, actually Caterpie is a caterpillar. It's hinted in its name.

    I suppose, but that one's a bit one-sided... or is it?

    You should read the Pokedex entries of the Pokemons you catch.

    Heatmor the anteater and Durant the..... Ant

    Mincinno and Trubbish
    One's meticulously clean, the other's garbage.
    Substitute any of the following for Trubbish:
    Koffing, Grimer, Wooper, Stunfisk, Barboach.

    Gyarados and Milotic, since one seeks to destroy and the other seeks to soothe.

    Except Pokémon do eat Pokémon, just like animal species prey on each other.

    Koffing/Weezing and practically every Fire or Electric type, since they'd explode. Grimer/Muk and Fire types, since they'd ignite.

    Skitty and Poochyena always looked like polar opposites IMO.

    Cherubi and Snorlax. Snorlax loves to eat berries...

    I personally think Riolu/Lucario and Mienfoo/Mienshao. They both seem like they'd fight.

    Hitmonchan vs Hitmonlee vs Hitmontop, which way of fighting is superior?

    Snorlax eats anything !
    Anyway, I think it could be Dakrai and Cressalia. They represent light and darkness. Enemies

    Jigglypuff and Loudred. Jigglypuff cannot sing with Loudred disturbing her with noises nearby.

    Electabuzz and Scyther after the animé episode 42 'Showdown at Dark City' in which the two rival gyms fight each other (and get covered in ketchup) :D
