I've always named myself Klaus; it makes the story seem like it's about a little German boy doing ignorant things with his hoodrat pokemon.

I either named myself Kevin after my real name or Red after his official name.

My rival's name used to be Gary until I found out his actual name was Blue, so I ended up naming him Blue from that point on.

For as long as I can remember, I've always given the player character my own name (Brendan), and given my rival their official name (in this case, Blue). I almost named my rival after my cousin, since he was playing through FireRed at the same time I was, but their teams/battle style were so different that I just left it alone.

I named myself Alex, after my own name, and my rival was Gary, after Ash's rival in the TV series.
A human sacrificed save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other. But not until I saw them put aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

Would name myself Joe since that's my name, and would name my rival Tim, a good friend of mine, we would play pokemon together when we were younger. Never really battled with him just traded or played at the same time, but when we did battle we would usually do something like all pokemon under level 20, or only bug types, etc.

I'm called 'Issnida' since I can't fit my wretched name into the name entry part.

As I said in another thread, I have no creativity whatsoever, and Blue is called just that, Blue.

Have you ever seen a chicken strip?

I always call myself Anna, after my real name, and then I come up with some stupid name for my rival. Although, in FireRed, my name is Derp and my rival is Herp.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)
