    Everyone names him (excuse my language) "Asshat", "Dickface", and things along the line of that. I just named him Green, because thats his original japanese name.

      I always name myself my initials, "JF". I had Pokemon Yellow in Kindergarten, so I named it after a kid I didn't like, "Alex". xD

        I only played the game for the first time a few years ago, so I named them Red and Blue, because I'm not a fan of the anime and I have no originality.

        My character's name is always "James", because that is my name. However, my rival's name is always different but to say the least its always very...colorful.

          I usually named myself "Patrick" (RL name), and my rival "James" (my brother's name). I liked that idea.

            I remember one time I named by character "I suck" just so Oak would say "Hello, I suck!" at the start... Ah, good times. c; But yeah in my main games I called my character Alex and my rival was Rasmus. There's a long story behind this that I've told several times before so I won't again, but yeah, those are the names I chose. c: Incidentally my rival has kept this name right up until now :3

              The very first time I played Yellow I named them Ash and Gary like in the anime. However, as I got older his name got more immature and inappropriate so you could probably guess all the things I named him... :V And I can't remember what I called him this time around. Probably something immature again. xD

              Yeah, I was of the age where it had to be Ash and Gary. It was Gen II that that I called the characters by the Version names, and then Gen IV when I used my own name and a suitable friend's.

                I was a small child when I played them, and I always named the protagonist "Terry" and the antagonist "poop." I know it was immature, but I thought it was hilarious at the time.

                    I'm gonna come out and say that this is quite a paradox

                    I've always named the rival Gary. Never changed it. I once named him "Gray" by mistake, and when I noticed it in Lavander, I just had to restart the game xD I know it's stupid, but it just bothered me too much.

                    As for the protagonist, the name was usually Alex all the time.

                      Seeing how Yellow was modeled with a similar storyline to the anime, with the player always getting Pikachu as the starter, I always named my player ASH and the rival GARY.

                      I honestly don't remember, once I grasped that his name was Gary I started to call him by his real name but before that, I think it was random.

                        When I first went through yellow I named them Ash and Gary. Now I name them Red and Blue when I play Red version. And when I play Yellow I name them Yellow and Blue. Sometimes Yellow and Green.

                          I always name the main character Miranda, just because it's my name, or if I was a guy, just Red or Blue.
                          And my rival was usually Gary, or Paul. (Paul is my friend )

                            Rival = douchebag.

                            I usually named my character all sorts of things in the games, though I guess I usually stuck with either Oliver or Olli, as those are my real name and nickname. I always lacked originality with my rival though, and usually ended up naming him either Gary, as that was the only name I knew the rival by at the time. It wasn't till much later that I learned the main character and the rival's actual names, and by then I didn't own Yellow anymore :/

                              Actually made me check my game. Can't really remember what I named them in my first run of Yellow, but in the last (and never finished), it's Ash and Gary. Nowadays I give them random names.

                                  Same here, I named him Ash and Rival Gary, since I noticed (as a kid) they resembled their anime counterparts...

                                        When I was younger, I named myself Zech and my rival Andrew (idk, some kid I hated in school). Started Yellow again recently though, and I kept the names as Ash and Gary.
