I don't know about you all, but I really hope they don't give the rivals pokes..

Within like, the first three routes like they did with Cheren and Bianca and Hugh and stuff.


Liepard/Stoutland
Starter
Monkey
Generic Flying/Normal


egh

Like, if one of the Rival's team is:


Starter
Vivillion
Weak First 3~ route 'mons
etc.


It'd be really boring, I want tough rivals you know?

To be fair, Liepard and Stoutland are awesome. But the rest, agreed.

Liepard is awful in every sense of the word in-game.


I agree with Stoutland though.

They did that with pretty much every rival, though.

That's kinda my point.

Change it up you know, give one of the Rivals a Noivern or some crazy s***

In Cherens/Hughs last battles they didn't have too weak Pokemon... and Gary had a Raticate, but stopped using it (cuz it died), and got better ones, too. I guess they could do it like that again.

Mays considered the worst rival despite actually mixing it up and using wailmer, numel, torkoal etc. silver used ghastly and zubat both easily in the first 3 routes and gary used pidgey and rattata yet these are the fan favorite rivals.

Idea:

The rival is a hacker who hacked into the Pokemon PC system to give himself powerful, rare Pokemon right off the bat.

BUT since he got them illegally instead of training them, they're all underpowered and weak.

Could be a nice Take That to the people who hack the game and think they're untouchable.

Its a shame that even the more serious rivals like Silver and Cheren never ended up with a pseud-legendary or anything. I'd like to see variation, too. Especially since my own team often ends up as my starter, one of each of the other starter types, the/a native bird, and other generic crap.
