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.
>>
>>24954118
Silver never gave me a challenge like Green did.

>>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.

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.

You're going way too fucking fast then

>>24954523
It's just because you're underleved
>>
>>24954555
I don't grind and I rotate my team. If I didn't, I'd be like the people who complain that XY and ORAS are too easy because of Exp Share. I boxed Exp All as soon as I got it.
>>
>>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.

Silver be first if they pushed his levels up a bit like in the basement and if you fought him in front of olivine gym

Bullshit. DP/PT takes place at the same time as HGSS, so he'd have to be in 2 places at once.

It does, when the game starts the tv shows the Red Gyarados stuff from Lake of Rage dumbass

>>24954130
Both of them have different fathers shown in-game, y'know
>>
>>24954130
Well Silver's dad is Giovanni and Roark's dad is Byron
>>
>>24955226
>>24955228
The answer is simple. He has two fathers: they're in gay relationship
>>
>>24955228
Cousins. Giovani's brother, Byron is in construction for mobster reasons.

Back to /v/!

Am I the only one who wishes Blue met Silver? I just want to see how that would go down.
>>
>>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
>>
>>24956290
>that toddler girl from X and Y
?
>>
He does have the best battle theme

>>
>>24956323
that cringy girl who wears that pink shirt with black hearts and torn jean shorts, everyone hates her
>>
Silver at least has the best rival theme hands down. This isn't up for debate.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>24956269
Google "pokemon green and silver" you'll get tons of fan drawn yaoi.

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.

You can't hide your post!
Not from me!

If you're talking about the original gsc yeah sure.
With hgss, I thought Barry or Hugh had a better theme imo

No, it is fucking not.

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.
>>
>>24956424
I wanted to correct be to been. Sorry.

Blue would beat the shit out of Silver. Discuss.
>>
>>24956431
Here we go again
Let's just agree to disagree
>>
>>24956434
I understand, I just wanted to make a joke.
>>
>>24956451
I figured. It's all good.
>>
>>24956440
do you mean in a fist fight or in a battle?
>>
>>24956494
Both honestly.
>>
Hugh was the best to me. I liked the fact that he was just a man on a mission instead of actively trying to best you. The fight at Undella was pretty tough too
