Very first time I played a metal based game; my Silver I kept him ???; it was only the second pokemon game I had ever played and I was used to yellow so when I was asked for his name I somehow thought his name was SUPPOSED to be ??? XP

I called him asshole, all lower case, cause there was this one Pokemon collector near Lake of Rage, it was funny cause he'd say "Some asshole made fun of my pokemon. Darn it my Pokemon great" :P I got a kick out of that every time :P

I named him 'Chris'. Because it's a very basic and common boy's name.

Always name 'em with their "default" names. Except Cedric/Pearl/Barry/Nobodycanagreewhatthispunksnameis, in Platinum. I named him Batman.

In Gold, I called him Qmark. In Silver, I called him FWCS (acronym for Fail Who Can’t Spell). In Crystal, I called him Alex (there’s a very annoying boy that I know called Alexander but I can’t fit Alexander onto the name space so I just called him Alex). I used to own a hacked version on Blue which was set in Johto, but it didn’t work. Plus, you can’t name him, he’s automatically called ABCDE.

I originally set it as somewhat obscene but legitimate names like Dick, which is very common. A celebrity name example is Dick Van GAY WOMEN which is a whole can of its own... and even phrases like 'every Tom, Dick, and Harry'.

I later moved on to naming him after various villains. Currently though, I'm calling him SHINN after Shinn from Gundam SEED Destiny - I hate that character so much it might be unhealthy.

I usually name him after my twin brother. I name all my rivals after him because....

- Your rival never wins against you. (he has never won a battle against me)
- rival never completes his dream and keeps it. (twin has never completed a pokemon game)
- rival can be your friend or your enemy. (we have good and bad times.)

Incredibly, I just randomly type something and add some vowels.

Example:

bkf: Bukaf
uas: Ugaps
fda: Fedai

However, it's usally "Silver"

After the obligatory "???", I restarted. Named him plenty of different things, including old IRL pokemon rivals/friends.

Finally settled on RHG, because a friend and I used to refer him as "the red-haired guy" when we'd talk about where we saw him/what level his pokemon were.

Ive recently been naming my rival the opposite colour of my game. For example, for red id name him blue and so on.

The first time I played Johto in Silver I made a newb move here. Somehow the ??? came across to me as his actual name so that's what I called him. XD
That was the only file I ever had in Silver, In Gold and Crystal I have no memory of most of the things I named him but I do remember his name was August in a Crystal ROM I once played based on a film theme I was doing. That's usually the case these days.
I might have named him Trent at one point in Gold after this kid who picked on me and my at the time best friend in the fifth grade. I know that's what I named my Yellow rival.
