When is GF goint to give us an interesting rival again?

Note how I said interesting, not jerk. Making the rival a jerk is just the easy shortcut to making the rival interesting. I'd be okay with a nice rival as well, but GF needs to give us an actual reason to like those rivals instead of just telling us from the get-go that we are friends in a cutscene.

For the record, I'm not considering N a rival in this topic, but even if you do, the topic still holds, since this gen gave us 4 uninteresting rivals.

Probably Gen 7.

I miss gen 3 when the whole 'friends' thing was unique. Now it's just...stahp.

i dont care about the personality of the rival, i just want the rival to be stronger.

gen 6 rival was the weakest rival in any gen so far. none of the battles were remotely a challenge.

Has there ever been an interesting rival?

I mean, maybe HGSS Silver? Or N?

But beyond that? Snore.

Well, I liked the serious rival and carefree rival scheme they had in Gen. 5. I honestly did get tired of the "rival treats you like crap" thing, even if I did like Silver. Maybe just more like that, but maybe with more personality.
Also, I kinda feel like a bully for beating up Serena's team every day, even if she's giving me a life lesson every time.

Serena / Callum were alright I guess.

I feel really bad for causing Serenas depression though...
