    Default Would you like the ability to choose your rival's gender?

    Would you? I guess it'd be pretty fun. ^_^ Oh, and before this happens, this isn't supposed to be a 6th Gen. speculation thread, but I would like to see people's opinions on whether or not they'd like to see it in 6th Gen.

    Having the ability to choose your rival's gender wouldn't really hurt the game. Of course, it'd be great if the two genders each had different dialogue. That way, choosing your rival's gender would be more than just for aesthetics. (:

    Nope, I think it's unnecesary :/
    HOWEVER, I would like to see more female rivals... The way it is now is kinda sexist, both female rivals (May and Bianca) give up in their trainer carriers and dedicate to something else... I think it has something to do with japanesse society though.
    The same goes for the champion, we have 5 male champions and only 2 female champions... Also only 1 female professor...

    I'd enjoy choosing your rival's gender. Although, if we were to do that, I'd hope that there would be a difference other then design for the two.
    I'll put something here...eventually

    I think it'd be great being able to choose your rival's gender! To be honest, I am getting tired of having a male rival.

    I think it would be pretty neat. Especially if they had different teams depending on their gender (And different dialogue, of course).

    It would be neat to be able to choose the rival's gender, so I voted "Yes", but truth be told the rivals are so inconsequential and underwhelming that it doesn't matter either way. That said, a solo female rival would be nice once in a while instead of the typical weaker, secondary roles that female rivals are shoehorned into.

    Hell yes! That would been sick if we do have an option to choose a gender for the rival. I'll like to see a better-handled female rival this time around...^_^;;; as well as having both genders to have a different team/dialogue.

    Female Silver... I wonder how that would work out.
    Female Barry is basically fastspeed Bianca
    Female N!
    While it would be good in other games... I don't think I'll like it in Pokémon. What I do want is at least ONE female Rival that actually wants to challenge the League. May and Bianca were both just collecting Pokedata for the Pokédex, and Bianca just battling gyms in the meantime (if I wasn't mistaken).

    Well, good to see some opinions. I'm not sure why 5 people said "No" though...

    Maybe is because they (and I) think that the change must come from the game and not from the user. At least thats my opinion.

    I'd like if I would have battled a female Silver with an attitude.

    The chance to have a female rival for once would be awesome.

    This. GAMEFREAK is really being sorta sexist now, having no main female Rival, or at least one that even wants to challenge the League.

    I'd rather just have two rivals, one male and the other female.

    I wouldn't really care about changing the gender unless there was more change to it then just visual. If it was just visual I'd probably just pick the female once, then the rest of the time male.

    Yeah, it would be good for a change. Or just a default female rival, without the option to choose, that would be less of a hassle probably.

    Nah. I kind of like the "jerkish" rivals, it makes them so much more satisfying to beat down. Hahaha.
    Though an actual female rival would be very nice - someone who doesn't give up their trainer careers, just because of some silly contests, or something like that.

    I wouldn't care.
    This was techinically in Emerald, depending on which gender you chose.

    Hoenn was horrible. Your "rival" doesn't evolve her starter... That's kinda lame...

    I wanna see more female rivals. All the male ones are ticking me off when they're being a pain. I like Hugh (proud Japanese BW2 player), when he teams up with you.

    I guess so, but I mean as in without having to compromise your player's gender. :/

    I'd say no.

    I just...really don't care. Rivals aren't important to me.

    I don't see the harm in getting to choose the rival's gender, so I picked yes.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.
