Since the old thread is locked, I'll continue it here.

What are you going to name the rival when BW2 come out in October?

Probably Yosuke (aka Brosuke), as he's probably one of the chillest "buddies" in an RPG.
Either that or Junpei.

I named him Klipy in my Japanese Black 2 and will just name him Klippy in my English copies probably. It'll be better since the name will actually fit, lol. I like having my rival as my best friend, so that when I get mad at him, I can beat his team in B2W2 and feel satisfied. :) Not really, but that isn't a bad idea lol.

Can't decide whether to name him Akito or Yanda. Yanda, after that guy from Yotusba&!, or Akito, after a character in a story I'm writing.

I'd let Hugh keep his original name for a lack of a better name I can think of. But I could have a change of heard and name him "Yusei" because of his spiky black hair.

I might just name my rival Kaj, because that's my boyfriend's name, or i could also just call him Karkat.

Hue, because it's a perfect name, why bother changing it?

I'll probably name my Rival Chrome because I like the sound of all the color and metal names. Then again I might change it... I don't know if it suits him.

I'll either give him the generic name of Hugh or name him after a friend, so probably Jack, Jordan or Luke.

If I go with the female then I usually just give it my own name... although there was one time I was in a bad mood and started a new game on Pearl and gave her a particularly rude name!

Due to my lack of creativity, I'll name him the default: Hugh.

I usually go for the official names, so Hugh it is~! n_n Even though I'm not a fan of how it looks haha. Yep, I'm pretty uncreative, though I'd probably go for Gray in my second playthrough (as it was the speculated name of the third version and the name of a character I really like that looks a lot like the rival).

I was going to go with just plain Hugh since I liked it quite a lot, but I really like the idea of calling him Gray (since SOMEONE has to be called Gray, haha). So depending on how I feel while playing, I'll call him either Hugh or Gray.

I saw a comment on Youtube and I'm basically done playing Skyward Sword, so I think I gotta go with Groose, because, you know, why not.

I named him さぼてん (Saboten) in my Japanese Black 2. The translation, Cactus, would be kind of random so I think I'll be naming my rival Sabby in my ENG version of White 2.

I might name my Rival after Enter, a villain from Tokumei Sentai Gobusters, or just name him Chris, after my middle name, which is oddly the same name as one of my best friends, to try and parallel my character's name (which will be my first name).
