What do you call your rival?

Lt. BLEU™

Top Class Lieutenant
HEY PEOPLE I WAS WONDERING WHAT PEOPLE CALL THEIR RIVALS?
INTRESTING ISN'T IT?

lets see who calls what..!

Due to my obsessive-compulsive need for the game to be as "canon" as possible, I use whatever the default name is (Blue, Silver, Barry, and Hugh). The same rule applies for the player characters, except in the case of Hilbert/Hilda because I think that those names are disgustingly bad (the former more so than the latter; Hilda's alright, but I still don't think it fits). For those two, I tend to use Black/Blair/Touya and White/Whitlea/Touko, respectively.

When I first started I used the default names for both myself and my rival. I didn't start making up my owns names until Ruby/Sapphire except that was one of the games were you couldn't name your rival. I would name myself Terry in Ruby/Sapphire but then I switched to Zion or Zyon for every game now.

R/B/Y: Blue

Leaf Green: Drake
D/P/Pt: Robert
HG/SS: James/Chad

Unless it's the mofo Gary Oak, I go with one of my friend's names, like Pete, Simon, Sam, Tim, Thomas, and Matt.

I am surprised to see so many normal names haha.

I call mine in Emerald Version D-Bag.

If you have ever played that version you should understand why the name suits him so well.

RBY: Gary
GSC: Lavir (rival spelled backwards cause I'm that creative)
RSE: May since I always play male
DPPt: Jack named after my dog
White2: Shane. I couldn't come up with any ideas so I asked my sister who is a big Walking Dead fan.

In Black 2, I named mine Hector. In Platinum, I may have left it default either because I didn't care or because I felt that I couldn't think of a better name anyway. The other games were owned by my brothers, thus I had no say in the matter of naming the rival, much less authority to play the game often.

I normally go with names I think are suitable... if I can think of one! The names I've got:

Pearl: Tommy (one of the default names)
Sapphire: Brendan (Obvious)
FireRed: Harvey
SoulSilver: Marco
Black: Cheren and Bianca (Also obvious)
Black 2: Hugh (Uncreative there =P)

On a quest to be the best...
I don't think the chaacters have cannon names so...

Gen1: Usually GARY.
Gen2: Usually BADBOB. Once I named him Jr.; a Rocket Grunt said something implying that he was Giovanni's son.
