Reassuring to know that I'm not the only one, either. I still enjoy the memories of "??? wants to battle!" and really, that makes his name uncertain. Realistically, it only works with him, because every other rival is someone you grew up with except Brendan/May, who come with names.

I think there's a reason why this changed in Generation IV... too many people named him ??? so they had to make it "unintelligible." That was what first got me thinking about this, and now my Crystal replay is too. Though I named him Mat, as in Doormat xD
