Be nice. There's nothing wrong with having HG/SS as your first game.

No, why would I be? He was actually more along the lines of an antagonistic villain than a rival in my eyes, that's probably why i didn't mind him.

Oh, you mean his persona

Guess you're right, considering the other rivals

I see, you thought i meant hard as in difficult. I was gonna use another word to describe him but the mod monitoring this board has a sick trigger finger.

Agree to an extent, but for different reasons. I think the games after Gen II would be better off without the rivals they have currently. All of the rivals after Gen II just weren't insulting enough to warrant being declared a rival. Barry, Hugh etc all are much closer to being your friend than being a rival.

You never really felt bad when you lost to them, and neither did you feel particularly good when you defeated them.

In Gen I and II however, your rivals were ******** and everytime they came on screen, you just wanted to kick their arses.
