I would say that Blue and Silver felt like the biggest two rivals in terms of the games, whereas your other rivals are more like friends training at the same time as you.

If I had to pick between the two aformentioned choices, my vote would go with Silver. He has arguably the best character development out of the rivals (going from a kid that broke into a Pokemon Lab to steal a Pokemon, to actually loving and caring for them). Being the son of Giovanni and hating him for all he does with Team Rocket is a really interesting story, too, giving him not only the drive to be a stronger trainer than you, but to take down Team Rocket himself.
