Yay, first poll on my account?
I'm begging for this poll not to be skewed in Blue's favor. Also list your least favorite tag-alongs if it suits you.
As a side note, my personal favorite is a few of the Stat Trainers (Cheryl and Riley). The former was a walking PokeCenter with a lovely design, and the latter basically bleeds badass. Cheren and Bianca are second.
Least favorite easily goes to the XY gang...though Shauna is probably the one I like the most. They all looked too funny for me to get attached to, and Teirno just sucks all around in my eyes.
At least they "attempted" to give Shauna some development; not to mention her fireworks scene caused one if the biggest stirs/flame wars in recent memory. She's also adorable; although her Sugimori artwork makes her look dreadfully more annoying than I found her to be.

Blue is the best rival, since he was always ahead of the player, showed actual malice towards them and was generally someone you'd actually want to strive to beat.
Silver is decent, since he at least has the malice, and him being Giovanni's son is cool. He never is shown to really outdo your player character, which makes him less of a threat than Blue, although the fact that random NPCs throughout the game are shown to be intimidated/overwhelmed by him makes him somewhat of a threat.
Everyone else is awful. After Silver, all the rivals turned into massive wimps, who didn't actually have any tension with your player character, and were always shown to be vastly inferior to your player character in everything they did. N actually kept up with the player, but due to being such a little crybaby b**** there's no way you could ever take him seriously, even for a second. Plus he was just Ghetsis' puppet, and was involved with that joke called Team Plasma. Gen 6 is what I call rock bottom. Why have four times the rivals, if they are all completely awful? Quality > quantity.
Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.
