In Gen 5 we had four awesome characters that frequently challenged the PC – Cheren, Bianca and N in Black/White, and Hugh in B2W2. Which of these four characters is your favorite?
vs. vs. vs.
The witty, knowledgeable childhood friend of the PC. He goes through character development in the game when he comes off as impatient to become the best trainer but is stumped when asked why this is his dream. Often he appears through the story to share his knowledge with the PC, help out in the fight against Team Plasma, and occasionally have a battle. While he never has bad intentions his dialogue sometimes comes off as dry and judgemental.
Personally he is my pick because I like his character development and his team.
The clumsy, adorable and (really annoying in my honest opinion) childhood friend of the PC. She begins her pokemon journey despite her father’s disapproval but came to realize she wasn’t cut out to be a strong trainer after multiple losses to the PC and after Team Plasma nearly got away with her Munna. She spends the rest of her journey trying to figure out what she can do in life that she will enjoy.

I was actually unsure if it was even appropriate to throw N in here since I wasn’t sure if he was considered a rival, but by definition a rival is “a person or thing competing with another for the same objective or for superiority in the same field of activity” and this is what N does when he battles the PC to see who will be the hero. N meets the PC early in the game and has an occasional battle. As someone who agrees that Pokemon should be liberated from humans, he is loyal to Team Plasma Spoiler:- end of game/B2W2:
Hugh is the friend of the PC in B2W2. He is an angry individual and has a grudge against Team Plasma because they stole his sister’s Purrloin. He begins his Pokemon journe in the hopes that he will become a strong enough trainer to defeat the villain team.
Personally he’s my least favorite because I find it hard to find him relatable – we never get to know anything about the sister or the Purrloin so as far as we know, they might not have even been that close :|
