I hope gen 6 uses a real rival type character in the game. Blue, Silver, and Cheren (to an extent), for instance: people who aggressively seek to become better than you, and are constantly competing with you, for whatever reason.

Sick to death of "Hey I'm your best friend!" type rivals.

A rival is by definition someone who seeks to outperform you. Being "aggressive" doesn't make you a "true" rival, and an antagonistic character is no more a "true" or "real" rival than a friendly one.

A friendly rival can make you grow too. And I think Blue is grossly overrated.

A rival that completely changes through the course of the game by traumatic incidents would be interesting.

Aren't we supposed to have two rivals in this game, a friendly one and a douchey one?

What if YOU were the rival?

You go through the game, and every time you encounter your rival, he always seems to be impossible to beat, always countering your pokemon perfectly, and higher leveled, too, and you just cannot win. Then you reach the Elite 4, and you're like YEAH, I'M THE CHAMPION! But then your rival arrives and kicks your ass, immediately kicking you off of the Champion throne.

Then you go take over a pokemon gym in Viridian City.

The rivals he didn't mention pretty much don't do that though. They pretty much just accept that you are and always will be better than them.
