What do you call your rival?

Discussion in 'Poképolls' started by Lt. BLEU™, Mar 5, 2013.

  1. Snorlax Max

    Snorlax Max While Supplies Last!

    FireRed: Gary

    Diamond: Barry (I was planning on naming him this before I knew it was a default name, it's just so fitting!)

    Platinum: Drew

    HeartGold: Kai

    White 2: Gurei (Horray for color puns!)
  2. thecutecelefable

    thecutecelefable the fairy trainer

    leafgreen: coke(I name myself pepsi)

    the rest names are mostly canon
  3. Rakansen

    Rakansen ラルフ

    I tend to name my rival after my friends since I name the main player as myself. I named my rival in SoulSilver Silver but I named the main character after myself and it bothered me how one of them had a canon name and the other one didn't. :p

    in the original gs, he says: "My names ???..." So when the cop asks, I just tell him "I dunno, dude just said his name was ???, so, I guess it's ???"

    Yep, I did what psychonerderer did in my most recent playthrough of Crystal.
  6. Dew Watatsumi

    Dew Watatsumi Water Type E-3

    same here, though I used to name my rivals stupid names like butt. ***, and sometimes their anime name.

    Canto Well-Known Member

    I just use their canon names.
  8. Lucario95

    Lucario95 Behold The Aura!

    Juan, I really don't like this name or I use one of my friends' names
  9. Excitable Boy

    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    Generally I'll just go with Schmuck.

    Not every rival is a douche, but every rival is a schmuck.
  10. I usually name mine after my roommate from my first semester of school. We didn't really "click". haha
  11. Shayminslicker

    Shayminslicker Comes out of Nowhere

    Diamond: Markus



    then the rest are there actual names.

  14. StarSurgeX

    StarSurgeX ☆ I'm The Captain

    Well first of all I started naming my rival Gary from gen 1 and then on gen 2 up to the gen 5 I named him my little brothers name XD

  16. TrueSerperior

    TrueSerperior Emeritus

    Elliot in Platinum
    Hugo in Black 2
    The rest I forgot by now.
    Planning to name the rival for Pokemon X Leon if I can.

    In the past, I gave my rivals stupid, funny, or swear word names.
    Now, I usually use their real names.

    I've recently taken to calling my rivals 'HugMe', often with a smiley face at the end. Kinda funny that I've only really done it with Black2 and HeartGold(which I recently restarted) so far.
  19. IndigoAir

    IndigoAir Myth Hunter

    Well, the one name I always want to use there isn't enough space for, which is Viridian ._. (Because I name myself after colours mostly... Indigo for any girl characters, Cobalt for the boys in SS and Pl, and Jet for the boy in B2.) For Platinum and B2/W2 I think I've always used their default names, but in the older games I would just pick something completely random.

    RBY/FRLG - F******* Blue or Gary. Not quite inventive on my part to be honest.
    GSC/HGSS - Silver. Again, lack of inventive mind.
    DPPt - Someone.
    BW2 - Originally ?. Now I'm too lazy so stick with Hugh.
