>>24954123 >>24954160 Those aren't rivals. Those are push over friends that give you items and heal you. They never once give you the feeling of Green challenging you at Nugget Bridge, in Silph Co., or at the E4; or Silver challenging you in Azelea, on at the Victory Road exit.
>>24954279 Sapphire (May) and Wally are nothing. Sapphire constantly gives you items. She maxes out at 4 pokemon in Lilycove. You never even see her starter's final evolution. Only Platinum (Dawn) is the only wannabe rival who is worse than Sapphire because you never fight Platinum. You only fight Wally twice: once with just Ralts and once with 5 pokemon on Victory Road. I had Ruby and Emerald, son.
>>24954387 I'm underage for preferring the older rivals because they're more challenging. Yeah-k-thanks-bye. >>24954391 Rivals can't be fair? What does that even mean? I like the game name and character name synchronization more than the fan adopted/anime names.
>>24954432 >Blue and Silver >Challenging That's just because you were a zygote with no actual tactics. If you play the games now you find they're just as easy to beat as the newer rivals and if you don't find them easier you're either retarded or lying.
>>24954440 I'm playing Red right now. Green constantly overlevels me by 5 to 10 levels. He is intimidating at certain points of the game. At Nugget Bridge my team averaged level 12 and he lead with a level 18 Pidgeotto. At Silph Co. my team averaged level 30 and his starter was level 41. I'll play Gold after Red, but I remember Azelea's fight being difficult for similar reasons.
>>24954582 I liked the Exp Share. I'm the kind of guy that loves to roflstomp in a game and have no real challenge. And that's why I play Pokémon. It's not challenging. It never has been and it never will be.
>>24954556 Silph Co. Rockets had Pokemon closely leveled to mine (high 20s through low 30s), the strongest grunt I saw had a level 33 Arbok I didn't struggle with them. My rival just had pokemon 10 levels higher than they, or I, did.
>>24954070 honestly the best rival, he legit hates you, you battle him a shit load, he did something bad and he doesnt heal you after every battle or gives you any tips like that toddler girl from X and Y and May
>>24956346 i agree fully, my friend says its to fast paced and im like, bitch this theme is the best because it IS fast paced, then he started ranting about diamond and pearl's rival theme being better. i lost a friend that day
I wish so badly Silver wasn't Giovanni's son. He was so much more interesting as a mysterious trainer like you yet who unlike you hated annoying faggots like Team Rocket and wanted to crush them apart of some crazy desire to be the strongest.
The fact that he stole his starter floored me as a kid. I was like "he hates Team Rocket, but he's just as bad as them!" Silver was the first morally ambiguous character I ever encountered. His heart was in the right place, but he thought his way of doing things was better than yours until it became completely obvious that it wasn't. I liked that he actually developed as a character instead of these other rivals we get that stay the same through the whole game.
>>24956408 >>>24956403 >That's always be the point of the games: catch and train them all. Each time I go to the Pokecenter, I switch out at least half of my team. You can't hide your post! Not from me!
>>24956375 >you catch him a ralts >you fight him later in the game >has a level 14 ralts >wonder how he made it this far >absolutely destory him >fight him at the end of victory road >groudonprecipiceblades.jpg HAHA bad joke man
>>24956403 That's always been the point of the games: catch and train them all. Each time I go to the Pokecenter, I switch out at least half of my team. At gyms I have whichever Pokemon have advantage offensively and defensively. I have to get my E4 team ready soon. I don't remember their exact teams, so I'm just going by main types: Ice, Fighting, Poison, and Dragon.
