What do you call your rival?

  1. Lt. BLEU™

    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.

    I name them after my friends in real life, but B2 has got to be the only game I left it as default.
  8. Zyon

    Zyon NUM NUM NUM

    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
    G/S: Silver
    Leaf Green: Drake
    D/P/Pt: Robert

    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.

    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.
  19. Chibi_Muffin

    Chibi_Muffin Smart Cookie

    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)

    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.
