- Which of the two is the better battler?
- Which has the better personality?
- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
- Which character would you go to in an emergency?

etc! Feel free to discuss any and all of these points (and more if you can think of them) in relation to Bianca/Cheren.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
I really found both of them to be fairly easy. When I was using Samurott in my Black Cheren Simipour was a pain for some reason. So I would give the slight edge, Bianca also has the starter typing disadvantage.

- Which has the better personality?
I never cared for Cheren know it all personality, like he is trying to tell you how things are at the beginning of the game when Juniper was about to brief the trio. For me I was like Cheren shut up and let the lady do her job. He seems to be a know it all throughout most of the at least first half, until Alder put him in his place. So for me it was Bianca, seemed like a female version of Barry. She is a bit annoying, but I find her peppy personality cheerful especially when I got these Plasma doners telling everyone we don't know what the heck our pokemon really want. I felt more of a bond with Bianca, and her personality seemed more warm and friendly. Cheren although friendly and helpful seemed to be motivation driven throughout the game like "What is it to be strong, how to I become strong blah blah blah".

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
I am sure they will both do a good job in whatever venture they may take. Bianca may do a good job being a future Professor while at the moment being under Juniper wing. Cheren like I said is really driven to succeed, so I can see him get somewhere in the future. He did beat the Elite Four to get to Alder after all. I think Cheren may succeed a bit more cause he has the will to get where he wants and probably will get there one of those days. Bianca on the other hand may also succeed wheter it be a big time Musical Performer or a Professor she has something interesting on her horizon.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
I really don't know who I would go to, depends on the situation I was in. I am sure both would be helpful either way.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
Cheren, hands down. Bianca isn't as serious about battling as Cheren is.
- Which has the better personality?
Bianca. She has a fun personality.
- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Cheren. He seems like an overachiever to me. x]
- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Cheren because Bianca doesn't seem like she would be much help. I can just imagine her running around screaming, "OMG WHAT DO WE DO?!".

Which of the two is the better battler?
Actually, I found Bianca to be slightly more difficult throughout the course of the game, but now Cheren has that damn Haxorus, so he's more difficult to beat.

Which has the better personality?
Bianca. Cheren really annoys me, actually.

Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Probably Cheren. He's kind of an overachiever.

Which character would you go to in an emergency?
As much as I don't like him, I'd have to say Cheren. The thing about Bianca is that she's kinda... clueless sometimes.

I'd be happy just as long as Bianca doesn't become just like Elesa, I really did not get where they got the whole "omg I should become a model because Elesa's nice" type thing, it just seems kinda... dumb.

Yeah I think the same, mainly 'cause you know how in Castelia Bianca was a complete mess over losing her Munna, while back on Route 3 she was totally trying to be a leader for the little kid, idk. It seems kinda weird that they'd show the two sides to Bianca like that because it's not really necessary to show her helping out the kid with the exact same situation that she got freaked out about later on.

My guess is just is trying to emulate Elesa, and saw her as a female role-model to her. Especially after she came to rescue to her after he dad told her she should go home.

She was later acting like a Bodyguard for Aurea at Chargestone Cave and Cedric at Dragon Spiral Tower. Although in the second instance I really think that was a front for her so she didn't have to get directly involved.

Well, I don't think that gives a positive impression of Bianca, because she has the choice of the smart, successful Professor, and instead she considers taking after Elesa, I dunno, I think it just doesn't really make her seem as smart as she could be seen. :x

Oh right, I forgot that - but in neither situation any Pokemon were taken/stolen from her, whereas the two I mentioned did, so they can be seen as a contrast.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
Cheren is, without a doubt. He beat me many times near the start of the game, and nea rthe end his Haxorus took me by surprise. His Gigalith (However you spell it) was a pain with sturdy.

- Which has the better personality?
Both were great, but i liked Bianca's a little better. Cheren is like he will always be protecting trainers from plasma dudes and Bianca will just try to bodyguard and learn under Juniper.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Same as other posters, Bianca might become a musical performer or a professor. Cheren will not join E4 but might become a very strong trainer.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
I really will only look for Cheren. Bianca is not at all to depend upon. She is still very childish and fun loving rival.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
Cheren. Post-storyline he is training in Victory Road, which could possibly convey that he is serious about his training and so he is prepared to put in the effort and train in a supposably "difficult" setting. Some of his Pokemon show evidence of strategy too. Such as his Gigalith with Sturdy using Stealth Rock, a move more commonly used in competitive battles.

- Which has the better personality?
I'm going with Bianca. Cheren is fairly intelligent, and holds a greater knowledge on Pokemon, not that it is a bad thing, though it how he approaches others with that knowledge. There some incidences where he'll misunderstand Bianca's humour too. Earlier in the game, Cheren showed to be impatient as well.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
I believe both characters will succeed in life. Cheren is intelligent and self-motivated so I could see him being a successful person. Perhaps he could teach at a Pokemon Trainer School (?). Bianca, as Kenshin5 pointed out, will be fine working under the Professor's guidance.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Cheren since his impatient persona, along with his intellect will come in handy in making a decision without doubts. No offence to Bianca though, as I can see her being helpful, though she may not be able to respond to an emergency situation quick enough to take effective action.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
Hmm, this one is tough. To be honest, both were decent battlers, but what Bianca lacked was the starter type advantage. I mean I never had an issue battling either of them, however by the time I first battled Bianca my team was already all 70+.

- Which has the better personality?
Both had unique personalities, yet both annoyed me at the same time. Bianca was always so uplifting and supportive, yet very clumsy. Cheren seemed very gathered but also too worried about his future in my opinion. Him constantly telling me that he needs to find a path or whatever kind of annoyed me.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Definitely Cheren. Not to say that Bianca won't get anywhere, but I feel like she will have to be handed things while Cheren will work harder towards his goal. However both are very determined, so it's hard to tell.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Probably Cheren. Bianca would probably panic too much.

Handed to her? What sort of things could be handed to her, really...? Cheren aims to be best battler (but he won't beat DA), which sure can't be handed to him, but she plans to be a supermodel or a researcher, or something like that, wouldn't they be kinda hard to achieve? :x

Which of the two is the better battler?
Since they probably both have the same AI, there would be no real difference in their skills.
That said, so far as I care to discern — Cheren has a better handle on item use.

Which has the better personality?
Cheren on the basis that his character seems to develop more, which implicates him as a faster learner.
I'd could get along better with Bianca, though; jovial simpletons tend to like me.

Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Handed to her? What sort of things could be handed to her, really...?
Life opportunities in general; Cheren is more likely to pursue them, while Bianca is more likely to wait for them to come to her.

Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Cheren as he is disinclined to panic.

- Which of the two is the better battler?

That's a really tough question. On one hand, Cheren has a team that would more resemble my own style, but if the opponent is faster & more powerful, he's gone. On the other, Bianca's team has got durability on her side, & because of that, it's likely that her opponent isn't going to go through that fight completely unscathed unless he/she has some ridiculous power in their team. That's why I say that it's a tough question. They both are great in the field.

- Which has the better personality?

I'd say Cheren has a better personality, especially later on in the storyline. He's calm, collected, & under self-control, which are must-haves for any person, & Bianca is none of those.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?

This is also tough to say. Cheren, after those meetings with Alder, went from a snobby know-it-all, to someone who would help out those in need. Then again, there's nothing wrong with helping out a renowned Pokémon professor, isn't there?

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?

Cheren, without a doubt, for the same reasons as my second answer.

- Which of the two is the better battler?: Cheren. He appears to know what to do in battle and he strives to become stronger.
- Which has the better personality?: Bianca. Even though she's clumsy, she's strong willed and even defied her own father to go on her journey.
- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?: Cheren, most likely. As previously mentioned, he strives to be the best.
- Which character would you go to in an emergency?: Cheren. Bianca might screw things up out of clumsiness.

Which of the two is the better battler? Cheren, by far.
Which has the better personality? Bianca may be a klutz, but she has the best intentions and is only trying to help.
Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? Cheren sets realistic goals and carries them out, and he strives for perfection.
Which character would you go to in an emergency? As kind-hearted as Bianca may seem, I wonder how she would be under pressure, being the klutz that she is. Towards the end of the game, Cheren seems to be level-headed in all situations, and seems very trustworthy.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? Cheren, he's more knowledgeable and knows his strategies better.
- Which character would you go to in an emergency? Bianca for some funny moments, she makes me laugh.

- Which of the two is the better battler? Better battler? Cheren all the way, but I had more difficulty battling Bianca's Pokemon, especially her Musharna.

- Which has the better personality? Biance is more upbeat in life, and sees everything as less serious. Happy go lucky but...

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? Cheren definitely. Cheren has more realistic goals and strives towards the attainments of those goals.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency? Cheren because she seemed more responsible than Bianca.

But I like Bianca wayyy more better than Cheren.

- Which of the two is the better battler?

I think Cheren is stronger. Bianca gave me some trouble, but Cheren seemed quite stronger in his final battale.


- Which has the better personality?

Definitely Bianca, although Cheren ends up coming across as more reliable. After he got rid of his know it all attitude at least.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?

That's a tough question. From what I've seen, Cheren is more intelligent, but Bianca seems more determined and energetic. I think they both have equal chances.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?

Another tough question. Cheren got more involved when it came to battles, although Bianca was no slouch either. She acted as Professor Juniper's bodyguard for a bit, and she was the one who offered help to that girl who had her pokemon stolen. And it was her who got the gym leaders together to fend off the sages. However she did end up getting her Munna stolen, while Cheren was able to deal with Team Plasma members with ease. So I think Cheren would be more reliable, although Bianca would be more likely to go the extra mile. Overall, I think Cheren has my vote.

Cheren for sure. He knows how to use his pokemon in a battle. Bianca ddi not really know how to battle.

- Which has the better personality?
I hate cocky people so I am going with Bianaca. She is nicer and knows how to have fun and doens't exspect to win all the time.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Both are about even,but for diffrent things. Bianaca will be a better reasercher if she was to ever learn how to control her emotions. Cheren would be the better battler once he learns not to be cocky.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Really depends on the emergency. But I'd say Cheren.

- Which of the two is the better battler? Cheren, but Bianca would probably be better if she got the starter that's super effective against yours.
- Which has the better personality? Cheren's personality is absolutely horrible. Bianca, by far.
- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? Both of them would. I don't see how one would be more successful in life over the others. In what ways do you mean? Cheren will go on to become a successful battler, and I can see Bianca eventually finding a place in Nimbasa City. Be it in the musical, or becoming a model.
- Which character would you go to in an emergency? Bianca would probably respond more. Cheren would probably end up talking too much and then when you told him what was up, he'd say something annoying like "Why didn't you say that in the first place?!!!" that would make you want to punch him in the teeth.

I probably wouldn't be friends with Cheren if I had the choice. u_____u

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? Both really. But Bianca is working with the professor and all Cheren does is lurk in that cave...waiting to battle...every day.

Yeah, I don't like Cheren at all. Bianca on the other hand is my favorite 'rival' so far.

Really? I never thought of it that way, it's true Cheren would be self-obsessed while Bianca, although probably would fail at first, would actually be able to eventually help out. I guess I totally forgot about how Cheren can be and didn't take that into consideration. Wonderful point! 10/10 for you.

Don't you remember when Team Plasma stole that little girl's Pokémon near the daycare, and Cheren came in and was obsessively talking about what he was going to do and then Bianca was like "OMG SHUT UP CHEREN THIS GIRL GOT HER POKEMON STOLEN!!!!" (paraphrasing) and he was like "OMG WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY THAT WE'LL GET IT BACK!!!" Tut tut, Nica, tut tut. Of course he's going to repeat that kind of behavior when it matters again!

- Which has the better personality? Bianca. She is nicer to her pokemon. Cheren only wants to be strong. And Bianca is just... silly.
- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life? I think they both would do well. They both have different views but that doesn't mean they both won't succeed.

Well...even if they are totally different people, that doesn't mean one should fail and one should succeed. I think they'll both succeed in their own way.

If I go to Bianca...she might freak out too. So...Cheren. Since he'd probably be more level headed.

Let's go with Cheren. He seems to be the more level-headed one, and on top of that, he's more powerful.

Which of the two is a better battler?
Silly question imo, Bianca battles like she has a mentally challenged, hand while cheren, while having better leveled pokés, still doesnt really get the concept of "stratergy". So, to sum up, Bianca has no brain, and Cheren doesnt use his. Cheren wins.

Which has the best personality?

I tend to like Bianca more, because she is more cheerful, more sociable and is generally open mined. Cheren is dead set focused on being the best, he never seems cheery. You can imagine him having no social life what so ever. If you were to travel around Unova would you train train and train? Or would you train, go site seeing, meet new people, hang out with friends ect? I mean traings important, but i think he got a little obssesed.

Which character would you go to in an emergency?

For the excact reasons above, but the other person, id go with Cheren. While Bianca is fun and all, sometimes you do need to be serious and knuckle down, but i honestly cant see bianca doing that. Cheren just seems cool and calm, i dont think Bianca could comprehend an emergency. So Id pick Cheren

I know, im harsh lol

I think Bianca is the better battler. Sure Cheren is strong but Bianca has much more latent potential.

Which has the better personality?
Bianca of course. Cheren's all serious 100% of the time personality is no match for Bianca's upbeat cheerful positive attitude.

Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
Cheren, he's more focused and sure of himself.

Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Cheren once again; because he's more focused. Bianca is too easily distracted.

- Which of the two is the better battler?
Cheren, hands down. Bianca didn't seem too serious about battling. Cheren on the other hand is a different story. His post-storyline team is quite the challenge.

- Which has the better personality?
Bianca hands down. I wasn't too fond of Cheren's personality in the beginning of the game to begin with. He was just telling you what to do in the beginning of the game. Cheren to me just seems to be motivation driven as the game progresses. However, I found Bianca's personality to be warm, welcoming, and bubbly. It just feels welcoming, and that's what's needed, imo.

- Which do you think is most likely to succeed in life?
I can see Bianca being a future Professor just because she's under Professor Juniper's wing. Although, she did seem quite interested in the musicals when you got to Nimbasa City. Either way, I think she'll be successful at what future endeavors happen to arise. Cheren on the other hand is more motivation driven. I can see him being the Champion, or at least a member of the Elite Four.

- Which character would you go to in an emergency?
Honestly, Cheren. I feel as if Bianca would end up confused and asking me questions such as "Oh gosh, what do we do now?" or something along those lines. Although, I guess it depends on the situation that happens to arise.
