I usually name my rival one of my friend's names...
I just hope I can, unlike in B/W.

I will probably use a default name, I can't really decide on a good name for this guy.

Hmmm... putting aside the options that you hear kids saying over the Internet...
A. Default/Official name. Well, it's there for a reason right?
B. B.o.B. Mainly because I listen to his music while I play my games ( during the champion battle...)
C. Stalker... er, well doesn't it seem odd that you always manage to find each other in the forest or wilderness... late at night... well that's how it was for me in Pearl and it scared me. Random rival music on Route 203... just waiting for me to come out of the city...
Anyways D. For Adadasbada (ah-da-das-ba-da- now say it really fast). It's called creativity and originality, people. Or a messed up mind.
Gave up on my signature... so...
SIGNATURE. <-----Happy? Yeah, I give up easily... tsk, tsk...
Don't know if this post sticks to the thread... feel free to delete!

I would name him either Sam or Lloyd. It depends on what I am feeling at the moment.

if its my first time playing the game I will name him something off the menu they give you.

Since I preordered jap w2, I know my rival's name will be some random Katakana signs chosen like: "oh, this has funny shape *taken*,oh and this one as well!"

In my english game, I'll prolly pick name of someone I don't like as I always do

It races through narrow caves, using its sharp claws to catch prey. The skin on its face is harder than a rock.

This made me lol.

I'll name mine Rasmus since I always have done with my rival. The name stems from a crush gone wrong in the past, so yeah, similar reasons to Dreamcatcher there tbh. xD

I would use the default name, but he does look like an Adrian to me.
If you read this, you just wasted 5 seconds of your life.

I like Hugh, an intense rival who is not as annoying as Cheren and Bianca in B/W.

I called him Shags. Nothing fantastic, just the first thing I thought of when I saw him.
