I agree, this would be a simple, and cool way to make a rival. I would really like to see them be twins, and the player you don't choose is your rival and sibling. They could do a play on twins being rivals from birth, always trying to be the better twin. Maybe your twin has always been ahead of you, in everything they do, and they make it their goal to be ahead of you. They let you choose your starter first, just so they can choose the starter that's strong against yours. A jerk move.It would help fill that sort of jerk rival that everyone has been wanting, while still making it new and interesting.I predict that your rival will be your sibling aka the gender you dont select.
Hugh kinda fits into that.And if they didn't want to do a jerk rival. maybe they went on a journey to help push you along on your journey. It would be neat to see a play on that too.
Despite them being friendly rivals, Wally, Barry, Cheren, Hugh, Calem/Serena, and Hau were fairly competitive. This is standard with most friendly rivals.Hugh kinda fits into that.
I'd also like a rival that's competitive since we've had our fair share of friendly rivals.
Yes, I'd definitely like to see rivals like them again.Cheren was friendly, but reserved and analytical. Hugh was brash, vengeful and angry, but he was very much your friend and biggest supporter. Gladion was rude, worked for Team Skull and actively avoided being your friend, but he was a good kid with reasonable excuses for coming off as an edgelord. They weren't strictly "jerk" rivals, but I'd still like more rivals like them.
I don't want another Trace, Hau, Hugh, Cheren, Bianca, Serena/Calem, Brendan/May, Dawn/Lucas, etc. either, but I'm not holding breath-Game Freak just doesn't seem like they want Rivals with any blatant negative traits nowadays.I don't want to see another Trace and I get your point.
They could most definitely be that and still be pompous jerks at the same time lol They'd just be "polite" about their perceived superiority.I hope we get a jerk rival and not a gentleman or lady just because of the British theme.
