I don't like the idea of the rival becoming the champion for some reasons:
- I prefer men/women being the champion, like Daigo, Shirona and Adeku, over kids (Green). It is cooler and since I am not a kid anymore, it is easier to me to relate to them.
- Repeating what already happened with other rival? Why?
- I still wonder who was the champion who Green battled in RBY/FRLG.
- Green is the character I like the least in the franchise, I wouldn't like to see people comparing the new rival with him.
