1. My favorite playable character would have to be Red. Not just nostalgia, I just liked how he was the final battle in G/S/C/HG/SS...
2. Favorite rival is Gary MF Oak, or Blue, or whatever he goes by this week.
Why? He provided the biggest challenge, and was a true rival. The final battle with his was amazing in both Gen 1 and 3. Silver was good, but his team wasn't too great. His music was great though. May/Brendan provided no challenge, and Wally was a better rival. Barry was a step ahead of you because he was so rushed. He was okay. Bianca? Lol, she was a good character, but not strong enough. Cheren was better, but not the best. I haven't played BW2, so I don't know about Hugh, but I've heard good things about him.
3. Gym Leader: Clair is my favorite Gym Leader for the plain fact she's the hottest XD I also liked how she gave you an extra challenge when you beat her.
4. Elite Four: Karen, mostly because she's hot. She also likes Dark types, which is awesome.
Champion: Cynthia, followed very closely by Gary. They both had awesome mixed teams, but Cynthia wins because of Garchomp. Oh, and she's hot too!
5. Frontier Brain: Lucy. Do I really need to explain myself?
6. Professor: Oak, I liked all of them, Prof. Oak wins by a bit.
7. Villain Team: Team Plasma, mostly because of the story. Followed by Team Galactic, because of Cyrus and the commanders. XD
8. Villain Leader: Ghetsis. Hydreigon was awesome, all in all he really showed the great Pokemon Unova had. Plus he gave me the best battle. Plus his theme caught me off guard, and was awesome.
9. Favorite In-Game cast character:
Steven and Alder. Steven for being bada** and Alder for his awesome story and hair. I might as well include Gary Oak if I'm judging hair.
Trainer name: Liam (I'm usually up for casual battles now...)

"While working on my PokéDex, I looked all over for Pokémon. Not only that, I assembled teams that would beat any Pokémon type. And now... I'm the Pokémon League Champion! Red! Do you know what that means? I'll tell you. I am the most powerful Trainer in the world!"
