    Wasn't there a thing in the anime about magnezone and metagross.
    Back in my day there wasn't an XP bar on screen and you had to use cheats just to get the game in more then one color.

    Lucario is stated to be a pokemon who can see through illusions, while Zoroark is the pokemon that create illusions. Besides that, Lucario has a x4 resistance to dark and the ability justified, so this actually does make sense. In fact, there may even be a chance of this being intentional.

    Girafarig isn't a deer, but since Stantler has psychic powers, I guess it sort of could count...even though it isn't really psychic type.

    Shelmet and Karrablast and extensively Accelgor and Escavalier but thats a bit obvious.

    I would assume there is a rivalry between Golem and Rhyperior. I don't think Golems appreciate their children being thrown by Rhyperior.

    Yay, responses! I think I like Minccino vs. Trubbish best, with points to Snorlax vs. Cherubi for the funny mental image.

    Aren't most of these just similar Pokemon/Pokemon vaguely based on the same thing/Pokemon with "relationships?"

    Dusknoir and Chandelure. Chandelure feeds off of souls, but would be unable to if Dusknoir sent the souls to another world.

    Spinarak line and Joltik line, compete for best spider pokemon.

    Venomoth and Butterfree.

    Bidoof and Rattata, most annoying first encounters

    Pachirisu and Emolga, best squirrel

    Cacturne and Maractus

    Legendary beasts and legendary birds

    Magnemite and Voltorb.

    I can keep on going with this forum all night.

    Pidgey line vs Spearow line, but that's canonical, isn't it?
    I feel Arbok is rivals with eithe Pikachu or Raticate.
    Marowak seems like it'd be rivals with- gosh, I can't think tonight- maybe Machoke?
    Oh, and thanks for having mine be your favorite! ^-^

    Reshiram and Zekrom. Truth and Ideals. Does nobody remember the legend from Black and White when Reshiram and Zekrom split from the original dragon (presumably Kyurem) and battled, in the process nearly destroying Unova? It is only natural that there is a rivalry. Also, only one is able to fuse with Kyurem at a time.

    Well, of course that one is known, but this thread, as stated by the OP, is geared more towards the less obvious rivalries.

    So far, of ones that haven't been thought of, I'd say Gigalith and Golem. Gigalith is very similar to Golem, but Gigalith is composed of compressed rock with a solar core with power that it can use to blow away mountains, and Golem tends to like hanging out in mountains, rolling around them and whatnot. These two would clearly tend to have issues getting along.

    I know this is crazy but Oshawott VS. Piplp. They were rivals in the anime and seem to fight for being the cutest.

    All of the tiny Legendaries could be rivals.... They're all extremely popular, especially Mew and Celebi, and they all have the same base stat total of 600...

    Well, I have a couple.

    Lucario vs. Scrafty. (since Zoroark was already taken). One of them is a noble fighter who keeps his heart pure, or something like that, not to mention the ability Justified. The other is a dirty fighter that has little semblance of honor it seems. Both are weak to Fighting.

    Drowzee vs. Munna - Both eat dreams, but one gets sick while eating bad dreams and the other will go to people with bad dreams to eat them away.

    Alakazam vs. Gengar - This one is more focused on typing than anything else. Well, that and they're both evolved through trading rather than training. =P

    Substitute any of the following for Trubbish:
    Koffing, Grimer, Wooper, Stunfisk, Barboach.
    There's also, if I'm remembering correctly, the fact that in White 2''s Route 4 there are wild mincinno while in Black 2 it's replaced with trubbish.

    I do think that Scyther's rival Pokémon has always been meant as Pinsir, seeign that you get them in their seperate versions, same place, both bug, etc. Where as Electabuzz's rival is obviously Magmar.
