Should Krokorok Be Considered One of Ash's Rivals

Why should he release any of his pokemon? And yes, Krokorok is Pikachu's rival, not Ash's. A pokemontrainer and a pokemon becomes rivals doesn't make sence! (exept Mewtwo!) If that crockodile becomes caught one day I bet it is when it is fully evolved. It will mabye be a bit disobeyent. But most probably it doesn't get caught. He never caught that Hippopatas back in Sinnoh eighter.
I hope it gets caught. They always taunt us with that stuff lol

Jiggypuff wasn't Ash's rival, I highly doubt Krokorok will be.

A human can't be a rival to a Pokemon.

Honestly, yes. There hasn't been any indication that Ash wants to or will catch Krokorok, and Krokorok appears occasionally to battle Ash (specifically, Ash's Pikachu). I'd say he's a Pokemon Rival, of sorts.

Come on. People should think outside the box here.

Definitions of Rival include:
-the contestant you hope to defeat
-be equal to in quality or ability
-be the rival of, be in competition with

In that sense, I'd say yes, Krokorok is a rival to Ash.

Krokorok is a really uncreative name...

ON TOPIC:

Like plenty of people have said, Krokorok is a Pokemon. He probably doesn't have aposable thumbs. How would he hold a Poke Ball in the first place?

Maybe not Ash's, but maybe Pikachu's rival?
I guess Krokorok wants to battle him for a reason.

Ummm, no?

It's the Jigglypuff of Unova. Jigglypuff always screwed around with the main cast, but she wasn't considered to be a rival.

Considering Jigglypuff just wanted an audience, I don't think she counts.

Krokorok actually wants to fight.

To all of the people who keep saying that a rival must have Pokeballs--use your brains. Please.

A rival is not another Pokemon trainer, necessarily.

Hey don't copy my font!

Anyway, while it sounds cool for a Pokemon to be a rival, it isn't really...

Do you think it's possible for a Pokémon to register itself as a trainer and go and catch Pokémon.

That would be something I would like to see.

For god's sake why does a rival only have to be a trainer who enters the league to fight Ash.

It doesn't! At all!

And fine if you're so insistent on this pictures this: Ash is about to fight some guy in the league WHEN SUDDENLY a Krookodile erupts from under the stadium to challenge Ash right then and there.

Yes, Krokorok will round up some of his Pokemon friend and disguise himself in bigger sunglasses to enter the Unova league.

Jokes aside, I don't really see him as a rival of Ash since they obviouusly don't have the same goal.
