Thread: What did you name your Trainer and Rival?

  1. #1

    Default What did you name your Trainer and Rival?

    Just wondering... What did you name your trainer (in any game) and your rival (in any game you can name your rival)?

    In Emerald I named my person Ray. Don't know why. I just thought it was an awesome name.

    In Leaf Green I named my trainer Paul, because paul is awesome. And I named my rival Jub-Jub.

    In Diamond I named my character Mia and my rival Boyd. I played too much Fire Emblem that day. Lol.

    I'm currently playing Crystal for old times sake (figured I'd play it before the internal battery dies). I named my character Amanda (my name) and my rival Dilweed.

    With the trainer, I would give him wacky names. Most of them would relate to the rival in an opposing way. Occasionally I gave him a demeaning and/or insulting name.

    With the rival however, particularly in RBY and GSC..... I often named him after historical despots, madmen or hated groups. Hitler (My trainer was named ChurchL), Stalin (HTruman), Commie (GorChev), and Nazi (Abraham). Occasionally, I would name him after a cuss word.

    For the fourth generation, I call him CrzHair, and on one occasion Dash. (Yes, I just beat myself up.)
    People admire and respect their superiors, are repulsed and disgusted by their inferiors, and connect to their equals.

    The extreme highs and lows in life get a strong reaction - Yet it the averages in life that most people connect to.

    The class system is nothing more then different groups of people grouping with their fellow equals and feeling the sense of separation from their superiors and inferiors.

    Lol.
    I used to call my rival Stupido in the old games. But this time, I give him a «serious name» so no interest at all.

    And the name I get for me is Jouishy, a nickname a friend gave me when I was young. When you couldn't chose for a girl, I sometimes take Joey (as a deformation of my own name). And sometimes my true name anyway.

    The game I spent the most time on was Silver, so I'll share you all the names I picked for that.

    Main Character: Oscar

    Rival: Abc123

    Because I would get a mental image of Michael Jackson every time I faced him and it would make me laugh, easing myself for the battle.

    I was only ever a big user of R/S/E, and every time I started a file I had a different name for my rival.
    My name was usually Megan (me, but of course), but a couple times on Ruby and Saphirre, after getting Emerald and transferring everything good over to that game, I juse used R/S to get TMs, rare items, etc. (Best non-cheat way to get great stuff like that, IMO ). So I just did all kinds of funky names for those ones, usually my rival was something stupid or occasionally vulgar (I'm mature like that), and mine always had something odd or oddly cool.
    Like Lezlie or, once, Super.
    Yes, Super. I thought it was so stupid it was funny.

    I actually reused the name Lezlie in a Pokemon story I wrote once, about a good rocket.
    It was a good story, I even had it finished up in a notebook... I should post it on here, updated to my current standards of course...

    Generation I games I would always name my character Ash and the rival Gary. This was a fairly standard practice back then since almost everyone who owned the games watched the anime aswell.

    Generation II I named my character Ric and the rival either Ginger or Bluey because of his appearance.

    Generation III named my character Ric again, rival was always defaulted a name which was pretty lame.

    Generation IV I only got into this year, named my character Ric yet again and named the rival Jelly.

    On my emulator Emerald, I named myself "you hobo". very funny.
    "We're home, you hobo. go into your room and set your clock, you hobo"
    "My daughter's waiting on Route 102, you hobo"
    "Hey, you hobo, do you want to battle?"

    While I'm on Emerald, something bad happened. before I was allowed to have any pokeballs, I found a shiny wingull. Had to kill it. on my emu ruby, the same thing happened with a zigzagoon. Wtf, mate? at least I caught shiny electrike and rayquaza in my cartridge sapphire.
