I named myself SIWEL (no idea why) and my rival "A dummy". So when I battle him it says "A dummy wants to battle!"

Almost always Gary or Blue and some other inappropriate names i wont list here lol. For myself it was Red or Ash. Typically i didn't care to venture outside of a generic name or the intended character game. Had the main characters not been made after real characters i may have choose original names.

I named him 'I smell' or something similar so that Oak said "Hi this is your rival, I smell." I was very young at the time so don't judge me ;;

Like most here, Ash and Gary, but not because I couldn't think of anything better, but because I thought when they asked for my character's/rival's name, I thought Ash and Gary were simply the correct answers. =P Well, this was the first time I was ever exposed to naming my characters in a video game, I guess.

Because it was made to be like the anime, I named them Ash and Gary. Though I also did this in Red and Blue as well, seeing as I saw the anime first before I got the games, so I thought I really was playing as Ash in Red and Blue.

I have Yellow, and every time I start a new game, I change the names of the Hero and Rival. My last one was Seth for the Hero, and Paul for the Rival. I HATE Paul with a passion. Every time I saw him on the show abusing his Pokemon, I was like "You don't deserve to be a Trainer!" His Chimchar release made me furious. He didn't even care about its feelings. Ash cares about his Pokemon, and only releases them to a good home.

I always named my character Ash for two reasons.
  1. The anime, derp
  2. My name is Ashley so I already go by Ash a lot

And the rival was usually Gary.

Since it's based off the anime, I went with Ash(even though I can't the kid. He has gotten better over the past decade, but I'm still not a fan of his archetype) and Gary.

I was 5 when I started playing Pokemon, and Yellow was my first game. I believe I named the player after me, and the rival after my brother.

I usually named my character my name, Aaron or Ash . Usually Ash since Yellow has elements of the anime in it. My rival I usually named him Gary or some silly name like "poophead" or "idiot" being that I was only 7 or 8 at the time.

I named it Red and Blue in Yellow. Although it is manga-based and not anime-based.

When playing Red and Blue, I slotted in my name and that of my older brother. He took the immature route of naming him something vulgar. <.< When we both got our hands on a copy of Pokémon Yellow, though, I personally went for the Ash/Gary combination. The game was blatently tied in more with the animé, so it just seemed like the natural thing to do!

Usually I just either named my character Olli, something I found funny, or just Red because I didn't have any other ideas, however it's pretty long ago, so can't even remember anymore. The rival however was always Gary, and that especially fit in Yellow, since it was closer to the anime :p
