18th June 2009, 2:56 PM
My rival's name, in every game I've had, is Hitler.

That made me laugh.

Mines Jack.
After Jack Skellington, duhhh.

18th June 2009, 3:04 PM
Mine is for Pearl (Dillon), for Diamond (Chris), and for Platinum (David). Yes, very bland names, when people call their rivals Xenon and whatnot, but whatever.

18th June 2009, 3:09 PM
Brendan, because hes my pokemon rival in real life.

18th June 2009, 3:11 PM

18th June 2009, 5:02 PM
Mine for Platinum is Baka.

IIRC, Baka means idiot in Japanese.

18th June 2009, 5:43 PM
Diamond I named him Kron....I dunno why. Platinum he was named Patrick after my best friend.

Sharks Shouldn't Fly
19th June 2009, 12:02 AM

On Platinum, I named him Keith...after the guy on Scrubs. : D

19th June 2009, 12:05 AM
I named him Dip****
It was fun watching his own father insult him in dp :D

19th June 2009, 12:09 AM
Diamond: Named him Daiga (Or Diaga.. I can't remember now Lol) after my best friends Pokemon-based RP character. It just seemed right.
Pearl: Named him Sly, after my boyfriend.. He's my rival. Lol
Plat: I actually.. can't remember, but I'm starting that one again, so his name will become Dreamer.

Eli in Diamond after my friend. I think it is Shaqaqa in Pearl.

19th June 2009, 5:35 AM
The most entertaining thing I have done is the rival in crystal. Since he says his name is "???" when they ask me what he said I told them that.

19th June 2009, 5:50 AM
First FireRed: Tom
Current FireRed: Jason

Emerald:...Brendan. (If I could have named him, it'd be something like Luke.)

First Diamond: Kiyo
Second Diamond: Jake

Platinum: Gabriel

All random and pulled out of the blue, BTW.

19th June 2009, 8:23 AM
Diamond; Mees ( the name of a friend of mine )
Platinum; Barry ( after watching the episodes with barry, he was one of my favorite characters and so I decided to name him that way. )

19th June 2009, 9:52 AM
In DPP, I name my rival Griffin.

19th June 2009, 10:30 AM

19th June 2009, 11:06 AM
In FireRed, I named him Bully and in Diamond, I named him Poopy.

19th June 2009, 11:11 AM
Always something unique - they've been things like Izzuka, Monza, Cozmo and Komet. I'm diggin' the whole space theme with DPPt.

19th June 2009, 11:20 AM
I remembered that I named my Rival in Silver, UBABE (I thought that it was pronounced as U-BAH-BEH)

19th June 2009, 12:30 PM
I named mine Ralph in Pearl because that was the coolest sounding default name. Now I name all my rivals that. Beforehand I don't even remember what I'd name them... xD

19th June 2009, 12:39 PM
i named him tyson.
that was a default option

19th June 2009, 2:25 PM
In Crystal I gave him the default option, whatever that was. (I haven't played my game for some time)

In Fire Red I called my rival Gary

In Diamond: Frank

kill and run
19th June 2009, 2:41 PM

Ruby: May (anime :/)

FireRed: Blue (default name I think or it was for nostalgic reasons, since Blue was my first Pokemon game)

Pearl: Ash (anime :/)

Wow, more than half of my rival names are inspired by the anime. I need to be more creative.

20th June 2009, 8:05 AM

Platinum: Damion (Anime Jun's speculation dub name...)

I name mine Gary or Richie.

22nd June 2009, 8:04 AM
heheheh... I don't know why, but my rival is called TofuMan... Please DON'T ask why.

22nd June 2009, 8:17 PM
Diamond: Star. Girly, I know, but so what? I like the name. XD
Pearl: Jun, his Japanese name. Yay.

Other games... just depends. The funniest, however, was probably Basura on my Spanish Yellow. No, that's not a swear word, it just means garbage. I still think it's really funny, though, for some reason. XD (Basura's house... XD)

23rd June 2009, 11:00 AM
i named him thing

don't ask why, it just was the first that popped in my mind

Red Globe
23rd June 2009, 11:30 AM
I usually name my rival something plain - the default name or something else, whatever looks the coolest name.

However, I may get creative on HG/SS, just because it is HG/SS and name him Arse, Lolbiatch, Tank, Hunter, Smoker, Boomer or Witch.

23rd June 2009, 10:24 PM
Crystal: Weirdo, An Arse(it was funny when i was ten)
LeafGreen: Gary
Platinum: Barry

23rd June 2009, 10:56 PM
Currently on Pearl its Oscar, on Diamond its Matthew, and on Platinum its Chris.

23rd June 2009, 10:59 PM
i always named my character after me: Chan
and i call my enemy: Syler (the guy from heroes)

25th June 2009, 8:04 AM
well im quite new to pokemon as i started with diamond...
diamond: martyn (because i have a freind who likes pkmn called martyn)
plat: brannon (because there is a annoying boy down the road who nags me and comes to my door at least 2 times a day saying:'where do you get______' or 'how do i get to ________' or something like: 'so slowbrow evolves into snorlax?' I keep telling him to go on the internet but he said 'i dont want to cheat!')
wow. sorry

25th June 2009, 1:10 PM
Platinum: Damion. (I thought it was the rival's actual name because I saw it in the Diamond/Pearl Guide but I was wrong. >_>.)

25th June 2009, 1:23 PM
"A hobo"

It brings some humorous results early in-game.

25th June 2009, 1:34 PM
Diamond; Jake (I can't remember why. O_o)
Platinum; Damion (The only default name I liked. XD)

25th June 2009, 2:52 PM
I called him Peter, the same as my best friend

25th June 2009, 5:19 PM
My rival is Damion in Diamond and Barry in Platinum, just because Barry is an epic name.

25th June 2009, 5:29 PM
My rival's names in most of my games (I forget what they are called in my 2nd gen and 1st gen games) are:

FireRed: AA (Please don't ask why I called him this... I was just rushing through and clicked AA out of boredom. Plus, I was only 8 years old back then, lol.)
LeafGreen: Idiot (>=) I like being evil...)
Ruby: Coke (Hmm, coca-cola!)
My other Ruby (I have two copies, lol): Ash (I was bored and just called him that.)
Sapphire: Time (Cause he hasn't got enough time...)
Pearl: Tommy (My cat's name)
Diamond: *Beep* (Yeah, you really don't wanna know...)
Platinum: Darth (I couldn't fit Darth Vader...)

So, yeah... All my rival's names are all pretty random. My in-game names are sometimes pretty random as well. I once played as male character (on LeafGreen I think) and called him Anne. Lol.

ground tamer
25th June 2009, 5:43 PM
My rival's name in most fourth gen games has been the opposite game title, with the exception of Pearl, where I name him Barry...

Pearl 1: Barry
Pearl 2: Barry
Diamond: Pearl
Platinum: Pearl

He just looks like a kid that I could call Pearl...

25th June 2009, 5:48 PM
I named him Cousin. I don't remember why though. ._.

25th June 2009, 6:01 PM
Pearl: thud
Diamond: thud!
Platinum: THUD!

On another account, though, I did name him "MY ***", which creates some...
humerous...concidences throughout the game.
"Anna! Go! Please check to see if MY *** is safe!"

25th June 2009, 9:31 PM
Red: Gary
Blue: Gary
Yellow: Timmy
Gold: Red (for the hair)
Silver: ??? (mistake)
Crystal: Terry
FireRed: Ryu (was going japanese for this one)

26th June 2009, 9:23 PM

26th June 2009, 9:32 PM
I always name my character after the version I'm playing and my rival after the other version. So for Pearl my rival is Diamond

26th June 2009, 9:37 PM
in platinom, it was Jerk

27th June 2009, 4:11 AM
I ALWAYS except in G/S/C name him after my bro on the Internet know as Knight but in the game it's his real name lol.

28th June 2009, 9:23 AM
Because I'm so incredibly mature, I name my rival vagina.

I<3 You
28th June 2009, 9:25 AM
In my DS file, its dewey, cuz dewey is a badass name.

In my Rom file(used for my walkthroughs *hint hint*) its chichan.
my brothers nickname is chichan and we are doing walkthroughs, thus his rival is Jordan

28th June 2009, 9:27 AM
Usually something insulting. My LG rival is named F*ckbag and my Diamond rival is named C*ckf*g.

I<3 You
28th June 2009, 9:30 AM
I never got the point of that...
Everyone probably thinks its humorous but it gets old.

28th June 2009, 8:45 PM
I used to use Lewis, mostly because I was somewhat lazy. Now I use Nolan, because it is a cool name.

29th June 2009, 4:18 PM
my rivals name is josh and it will stay like that forever

29th June 2009, 6:25 PM
It's always been Larry - Alakazam is Larry 2.0

2nd July 2009, 6:09 PM

2nd July 2009, 6:17 PM
I named my rival Timothy in Pearl, and Barry in Platinum.

2nd July 2009, 6:27 PM
My rival is always Shigeru, much as I am always Keiko. So that's his name in all three of my games, as well as my Japanese Platinum. ;492-s;

3rd July 2009, 1:19 AM
In my Diamond Version, my rival's name is EDWARD. I like all caps, and I was on an "I HATE TWILIGHT" rant when I started playing.

PKMN Legend Anthony
3rd July 2009, 10:51 AM
Michael in Platinum. But in all the other generations its been Bob. For no reason at all.

4th July 2009, 1:13 AM
I recently named my rival squints.

Midnight Lucario
4th July 2009, 2:49 AM

Gary, Silver, Lucas. One of those three.


7th July 2009, 2:04 AM
In Platinum, it is Light. I always seem to be at a complete loss when it comes to creating character names, and it was the closest thing that came to mind.

7th July 2009, 2:06 AM

7th July 2009, 2:06 AM

8th July 2009, 10:01 AM
In Pearl I called my rival "Paul", I can't remember the reason though. In Diamond I called my rival "Michael", again I can't remember why, I was just picking random names I guess. ^^;
In Platinum however, I called my rival his Japanese anime name, "Jun" as I just prefered it over the english version of his name "Barry". (:

8th July 2009, 10:17 AM
In Pearl, I called him Spencer. After one of my friends that annoys me in a rather similar aspect to Jun annoying Hikari. =]

8th July 2009, 10:36 AM
Leaf Green-Gary

8th July 2009, 10:45 AM

9th July 2009, 1:00 PM
I name all my rivals Steve. Because you can never go wrong with too many Steves.
Get the reference?

9th July 2009, 1:13 PM
Jun or Ralph. I don't like Barry for him. It sounds... barred, and obviously that's not who he is. Probably going to call him Pearl in my future files for PokeSpe's sake.

Calm PokeMaster
9th July 2009, 4:09 PM

I love that name.

You have a decent amount of culture.

I usually just name my rival one of the names listed, usually Lewis but now Nolan.

12th July 2009, 1:17 AM
In All of my games I named my rival after one of my best friends, James. We're rivals in everything in real life and we always try to beat eachother in every thing, so I can kick his a*s at pokemon without him even being there
