    Default Rival Names

    In the games where you get to pick your rivals name, what did you choose for him?

    For me, it's people that I either met online or was friends with in real life. I know some kids like to give ridiculous names to the rival (one of my cousin's called his rival "BIG POO" when I was trying out Diamond)

    I usually give the rivals the Canon Names, that is, Silver, Barry, Hugh, etc.



    I have officially claimed Mew (Pokemon), Poo (EarthBound) and EarthBound itself.

    I just give my rival random common names, like Michael, Joe, Larry. Once I called myself Diaruga and my rival Palkiel.

    Shouldn't this go in the Wuestions thread or something?

    I also name my rivals in this fashion. Sometimes I give them ridiculous names whenever I wanted to play with a laugh.

    Anyway, I named my rivals canon anems (with the exception of Barry/Chris in Platinum/Diamond)

    Diamond: Chris, Pearl: Cedric, Platinum (JP): Jun, Platinum (EN): Barry.
    B2W2: Hugh.
    Johto: Silver
    Kanto: Blue

    In early age I was used to name my rival with people's name that I didn't like very much.

    Nowadays I prefer name them with their original name. The modern rival isn't a bad/evil/nasty guy like it was in R/B/Y and G/S/C, plus I don't want to include the name of unplesant people in my game.

    I give either names of people in real life, or canon names, or random names. I really don't care what I call them.

    I give them their default names, so they'd be Blue, Silver, Barry, and Hugh.

    Billy, Joe, Stan, Bob. Bobby, fart,??????, and Pingas. Other names I use are rather...inappropriate.

    In the past, I named my rivals after people I don't like in real life, swear words, and names related to what I named my character.

    Now, I just use the canon names.

    It really depends on what I like to name them. Usually it's from other game or movie characters.

    In my first games, I did what everyone did and gave my rival some pretty abnormal names. Now though I give them their designated names.

    Looking for more secret bases! Message me your QR code, and I'll send you back mine.

    Looking for that extremespeed linoone with adamant or jolly (when it comes out). If you're gonna get one, I'd appreciate it. I can clone it if needed.

    In Platinum I named him "I say!" so that every time he says something, I can imagine him saying it in a thick English accent.
