      I'm actually playing Pokemon Yellow on my Gameboy at the moment and trying to finish the game, along with 2 other friends trying to finish Pokemon Red and Blue on Gameboy. I named my character Jake, after myself and the rival Jarrod, one of my friends who is playing.

        Lol Moments!
        Red and Blue.
        Who would've thought?
        Nobody ever calls there rivals that! ;D
        I did it because Red in HG has Charizard, Venusaur, Blastoise, Pikachu, Snorlax and Lapras.
        And Red goes with Blue, for rivalry.

            I always named myself Byakuya, and named my rival either Sosuke, Aizen, Mayuri, Kaname or Kisuke.

              I have always named myself 'Ash' and my rival 'Gary'. Never anything else.

              Man I can't really remember the details the first time I played it! Which is odd, because it's supposed to be memorable for being my first played game of the series.

              I'm gonna take a wild guess and say Patrick for the player character and Gary for the rival. The first one would be the obvious choice unless I was feeling anime-y (in that case, it would be Ash), but Gary I think is most likely what I named my rival. I was a fan of the anime back then so I think that must have reflected to my rival's name. It's possible I actually named my rival after a childhood friend, though. :P

                I would always name my character either "Lati" or my full name which is Latifah and I did not care if I was a male at the time and as for my rival, I would give him bad names such as the "F" word the "S" get the point and this was because I was very immature at the time

                I named myself Red and my rival...oh...the first time I played the game I called him ''ass''...then when I was starting my adventure I found boring so I changed it to Blush. I don't know why...then when I completed the game I restarted it and named him Green.

                  Gary, because, well, it's Gary. The name stuck forever.

                  Not Ash, however. That one you leave as Red.

                    I named the character Cheese and the Rival Ham, because I was hungry that day.

                        My character: I usually use a variation of my real name, a nickname, or a username that I use.

                        Rival: It always and forever will be something inappropriate. xD It fun seeing Professor Oak refer to my rival/his grandson as a vulgar word or phrase. :3

                        Ash and Gary. I even used Red's team from HGSS.

                        The game yellow somehow gave me a craving for cheese, so I called the protagonist, Cheese! The Rival was Omelets, I think I was really hungry when I start playing. Cx

                          I named my character, my name. and my rival was Blue, since that's his name in-game rather than Gary (Anime) xD

                            Me, I like to name my character with my name.
                            And for the rival, it will always be one of my friend's name. -_-

                                I named my protag "Heroman" because he was the heroman, and my rival's name was ??? because it's what he said his name was and I was in no position to argue with him.

                                  I got Yellow when it was released and gave the protagonist my name, and the rival the name of the primary antagonist of a play series I occasionally write.

                                  YELLOW: Sarah
                                  BLUE: Damien

                                      It was either Ash and Gary (I think it was), or I was DAVID!! because I liked filling all of the characters possible and my rival would have been one of my friends at the time. Probably Eli.
                                      Just a guy that likes to play Pokemon and do Let's Plays now and again.

                                        I actually had the Japanese version of Pokemon Yellow six months before the English version came out. (Hooray for Japanese cousins and knowing Japanese!)

                                        I in fact played 1st and 2nd gen all on japanese cartridges. Anyway I named myself "Akasata" which is the first four "A" sounds of the japanese alphabet. My rival, "Okosoto" is the first four "O" sounds of the japanese alphabet.

                                        Like the sprites you see here?
                                        Want a custom one of your very own?

                                        Come on down to DD's Sprite Shop~!
