    I gave him a legit name, though I could see where you got confused.

    Yay! Now we know our mistake is common! Nice to know we're all equally stupid. :)
    Hacks I'm working on:
    Pokemon Sapphire Hoenn's Rebirth - My own hack, making progress whenever possible.
    3rd Gen Multiplayer Project - Research and development, occasionally testing, sometimes with support.
    Pokemon Cursed/Creepy White - Group project, on hiatus for now with plans to return eventually.
    Animal Crossing Wild World playing as an animal - experimental, messing with models and textures

    Hacks I've worked on in the past:
    Pokemon Ruby Destiny Broken Timeline (pre-reboot) - Assisted with maps
    Pokemon HeartGold Prince Boo Edition - Experimental project with three small changes. Made at the request of YouTube LPer PrinceBoo21.

    Been super busy with work, life, and laptop problems. Hopefully I can get back into it soon, I fear I'm already rusty. Meanwhile I'm considering writing some of my hacks as a series of fanfics.

      I never did, but I can't remember what I did name him. I was so confused that he said his name was ???, but I just figured it meant he didn't know his own name.

        I think I did that at one point, at a young age.

          I did it when i was like 4 back when i first bought Gold version then i turned about 7 and just used random names like Joseph, Jay, Kevin, Brandon ect.

          I recently found out like 3 years ago that his name is "Silver" and the main characters name is "Gold" or "Jimmy"

          Oh my gosh, when I first played the game (and was like 6 years old) I named the rival "???" xD However, those games in which I did that with have had their batteries dry up and after I learned from the mistake of "??? Would like to battle!", I just named him "Rival".

            I did the same exact thing, each time in fact, because your rival did say that his name is ???, I wasn't going to lie to the police officer XD

            I didn't exactly do this myself, but I witnessed my brother doing it. His reasonings were the same as the majority of you above, though at the time I made fun of him for doing it. And when I finally got my Silver game, I named him Gary for nostalgic reasons. Today I call him Paul. =3

              Funnily enough I cannot remember! I thiiiinkkkk I went with Silver though. I wanted to be classic and Silver is certainly a classic name.

              so it's gonna be forever ... or it's gonna go down in flames

                When I was little, the first Pokemon game I ever played was Crystal. I named my rival "???" because I thought you were suppose to name him that.
