    Default What did you name Hugh?

    In Black and White versions, Cheren and Bianca had preset names; therefore you couldn't choose their names. However B2W2 allowed you to name this guy:



    "I'm about to unleash my rage because you gave me such a dumb name!"

    So what name did you choose for Hugh? I named him Patrick the first time I played W2, then decided I didn't like him so I named him Fart the second time around because I was feeling immature. The third time I just named him Hugh.

    I named him Hiroshi, after the old joke about his name in Japan. This was before I had even known about his canon name.

    I called him Scorpion because I was calling myself Sub Zero during one play through.

    To me, Hugh is such an ugly name reminds me of the word ugh and like someone is trying to spit a loogie or something. Named him Matthew from the list of names I like and mostly because when I hear the name Matthew it just, to me, screams anger. I mean kind of like his personality. An angry person. Also reminded me of an OC of mined named Matthew who was a pain in the neck for most of the time being angry and "unleashing his rage."

    I named him Cloud in White 2, due to his hair reminding me of a fluffy cloud . Hugh, for the longest time, I pronounced it wrong, giving it a hard 'g' instead of a silent one.

    Oh yeah, you can name him |D.

    I didn't name him, for some reason. I'm not sure why, either, probably because there was something a little charming about having a character be named something as uncommon as "Hugh". I don't hear that name much anymore in real life, only other time I hear it on a regular basis is the character Hogarth Hughes from The Iron Giant, but that's about it. So I guess I just found it interesting that "Hugh" is his default name.

    I have absolutely no idea what I called him.
    Until now, I totally forgot you could in those games.

    I left it with the default name, Hugh, in both B2 and W2. Somehow, I wanted to get through the introduction fast.

    Just "Hugh" for me.

    I generally stick to the canon names for rivals (as long as I'm aware of them.) I never even nicknamed my Pokémon until I started trying Nuzlockes.

    It just occurred to me to check my games, and apparently I did the same.

    Not really fond of the name Hugh, so I named him Ace first as it just seemed like a snazzy cool name for a cool game. In second playthrough I wanted sharp edgy to mirror his arc with Team Plasma, so I named him Pierce.

    I named him Zed in Black 2 and Ted in White 2. Can't remember the reasons as for why I gave him those names. Though I guess I at least wanted him to have a similar name in both games, which is why they were almost the same. And then I usually have a tough time coming up with good and creative rival names, which is why I tend to prefer the situations when the rivals have set names that can't be changed.

    I'm pretty sure I've named him Hugh every time I've played BW2. I rarely give the rivals different names anymore as I like going with the canon ones. And I often have a hard enough time choosing a name for the player character.

    Nice one, too.

    When naming rivals, at the very start of playing Pokémon, I tend to use the first name in my mind but now, I use their actual names.

    "Hugh". I'm unoriginal and I like going with the canon names like the others have said. It keeps the game going faster since I'm not sitting there trying to think of a good name for my rival XD

    Hugh. I go with the most generic names every time I play a game. Unless I can choose the main characters name and then it's my name.

    I named him "Zane" after a similar character in a different anime. Seems to fit IMO.

    "Robert" after Robert Smith, lead singer of the Cure. Admit it, that's what his hair makes you think of.

    I just stick with Hugh. It seemed easier and more simple that way.

    I named him Hugh. A name I've never been particularly fond of for a character I've never been particularly fond of.

    I thought the name Edwin would be a good idea to use, so that's what I named Hugh.

    I usually name my rival Cj. Not sure why it's just a tradition I guess XD
