Rather than cluttering up the forum with three dozen "What's your favorite ____?" threads, we've set up these Favorites Stickies to contain all possible topics in a compact, easy-to-use format!

This is the FAVORITE PEOPLE thread.

Topics include:

1. Who's your favorite PLAYABLE CHARACTER?
(Red/Green, Ethan/Lyra, May/Brendan, Dawn/Lucas?)

2. Who's your favorite RIVAL?
(Gary, Silver, May/Brendan, Wally, Barry?)

3. Who’s your favorite GYM LEADER?
(Does Brock rock? Does Gardenia get your garden growing?)

4. Who’s your favorite ELITE FOUR MEMBER/CHAMPION?
(Is Flint hot stuff? Is Lance the man?)

5. Who’s your favorite FRONTIER BRAIN?
(From the Battle Frontier in Emerald and Platinum)

6. Who’s your favorite PROFESSOR?
(Oak, Elm, Birch, Rowan, etc)

7. What’s your favorite CRIMINAL TEAM?
(Team Rocket, Magma, Aqua, Galactic, Dim-Sun, etc)

8. Who's your favorite CRIMINAL TEAM MEMBER/LEADER?
(Are you a fan of the Go-Rock Quads? Do you like Cyrus's mad scheming?)

9. Who's your favorite IN-GAME CAST CHARACTER?
(Bill, the PC creator? Scott, the talent scout? Mr. Fuji, the Pokemon caretaker?)

... And more!
(If you can think of a type of character not included in this list, post it here anyway! Don't make your own thread for it.)

Your answers can be from any section of the Pokemon franchise, not just the video games. And don't worry - you don't have to answer every single question at once when you post. Just feel free to give a little explanation of your choices when you can. These threads are subject to updates.

Thanks to SapphireL for original thread format.
