On Fire Red, if I recall correctly, I named mine Jeltz, after the Vogon. (Yay if you get the reference.)

On Leaf Green, however, I named him Jack, after someone I know on another board. Let's just leave it at that.

I usually name my rival in G/S/C: Loser, Sir Lame(if there's room), Losalot (loses a lot to me), Bum, Kyle(a boy that I despise), Dan, (my little brother), Alexa(my spoiled cousin) nolegs ("Come on, NoLegs!" shouted Wayne Brady saying "World's Worst" name for a race horse), getlife, or NoAlly. (as in no allies 'having no friends'). But in FR/LF/R/S/E, I usually named it after a boy that I liked at the time...

August 6th, 2006, 6:00 PM
Awsome names... Mine was... "Stupido", because...back when that was my favorite name to call stupid idiots. And stealing is for idiots... And now, I believe his name is Phycho J. It was kind of an inside joke thing, but whatever...

August 7th, 2006, 1:09 AM
Hehe, interesting thing about Crystal and FireRed is, in Crystal the rival looks nerdy but has an impressive villain personality which makes him an attractive nemesis, while in FireRed the rival looks cool but, in reality he's nothing more than a spoiled brat :)

So, in Crystal I always name the rival Phillip and in FireRed - Chandler ^^

Dunno why, now that I think about it o.O;

I always name my FR/LG rival Gary.

August 12th, 2006, 2:59 AM
The first time I named him gary...but the last couple of ties I've just said things like:


It's hilarious: "ZZZZZZZZZZZ wnats to battle."

A Very Happy Blissey!
August 12th, 2006, 6:28 PM
I name mine really stupid things too.

Like the last time around, I named him U W**** (rhymes with "store"). If you name anyone something like that in any RPG, no matter which one it is, you're bound to get some laughs out of any dialogue having to do with the character. As for my main character, I named him U B**** (rhymes with "witch"). Even funnier.

This time, I'm using the girl as the main trainer, and I named her Missy and her rival Mikey.

August 13th, 2006, 2:52 AM
I named him after my friend Tommy.

August 13th, 2006, 6:16 AM
I named him Shuggmz in Fire Red and Asparagus (or some other vegetable).

edit: Sometimes I give them normal names when I play, because I get really attached to the rival and my character. I always give my characters names like Shirley, Lola, Gidget.

August 15th, 2006, 12:19 AM
/snickers/ Can't...resist...

[cockney accent]In me last game, I named 'im Rodney...after Dave[/cockney accent]

LMAO! :laugh:

August 15th, 2006, 6:04 AM
I named mine Will...cause I think he looks like a Will..and I named him after my brother...haha.

August 16th, 2006, 4:55 PM
I named mine Sora. Cause my characters name is Riku.

August 16th, 2006, 7:12 PM
I just name the rival Gary.

August 17th, 2006, 3:31 PM
Yep Gary for me...

My friend call them stupid stuff like bellend and poopoo.

August 17th, 2006, 11:20 PM
I named him, exactly, ISSAC in fire red.
He reminded me of that 'hole in sunday school the last time.

August 19th, 2006, 4:10 AM
I made my rival's name Stevo XD

He hates me, and I think its funny as heck

August 19th, 2006, 3:19 PM
I named my rival in LeafGreen Drake.

August 19th, 2006, 6:13 PM
I named him "some guy"

it works out in the end, because Lance is saying "and that person is...... 'some guy'!" and "'some guy' wants to battle you!". : )

August 19th, 2006, 6:28 PM

October 2nd, 2006, 4:31 AM
Everytime I start a new game, I always name the rival Ton, or when it's a female rival, I name her something else

October 2nd, 2006, 4:07 PM
Liam after my previously Pokémon obsessed friend.

Ah, for the day when I defeated him on Yellow...

October 2nd, 2006, 4:12 PM
I always named my rival in the original Red version Gary (unless I was joking around and named him "Jerk,") so I did the same for my FireRed.

As for Crystal, I named my rival Nick because that was the name of this one kid at school that was always being a jerk to me. O_o

October 9th, 2006, 9:54 AM
I always call him Gary in yellow or firered but in Gold i always called him a name that sounds tough like Dustin or Killer

Iced Coffee
October 9th, 2006, 4:14 PM
(This has been going on since pokemon was first released.) But I always call my rival Ponq, when I was little I thought it was funny, but I still kept the habit!

October 9th, 2006, 7:19 PM
I named my rival Gary, which has serious repercussions in real life. I'm not going to delve further.

It's just been a ritual for me to name the rival that.

October 13th, 2006, 5:16 PM
I named mine mr.dodgy. Pretty cool name imo.

October 13th, 2006, 9:38 PM
Whoever was my rival at teh time, but I restarted it and named my rival a name of someone on PC..(Not saying names XD)
