A '''Rival''' is a [[Trainer Class]] in the game that battles you often throughout the main storyline, often being a childhood friend or a bully and hater to the player. When your player picks a [[Starter Pokémon]], the rival will have a type advantage over your starter with the exception of [[Dawn (Game)|Dawn]] or [[Lucas (Game)|Lucas]], especially [[Bianca]], who all choose the Pokémon with a type disadvantage. [[Wally]] starts out with a [[Ralts]], rather than a conventional [[Hoenn]] starter.

Having a rival as the player's opponent has been introduced since [[Generation I]] with the known and popular rivalry between [[Blue (game)|Blue/Green]]<sup>{{tt|JP|Japanese version of Pokémon Red and Green}}</sup> and [[Red (game)|Red]]. A rival mostly appears in the main game series throughout the game and challenging the player in different Pokémon battles. Rivals mostly appear early in main game series, mostly have been picking their starter Pokémon from a Professor in a different region. Their starter Pokémon is mostly the one that has a type advantage against the Pokémon that the player has chosen, as example: The player choose Charmander, the rival will choose Squirtle, because Water is stronger than Fire. But in exception of [[Bianca (game)|Bianca]] and [[Shauna (Kalos)|Shauna]] who choose a weaker type than the player's. Most of the player's rivals don't come to pick up a starter Pokémon, or have seen that they took a starter Pokémon alongside with the player. [[Silver (game)|Silver]] as an example, stole the Pokémon from [[Professor Elm]]'s laboratory. Mostly, a rival has a deeper story line about their behavior. Most of the player rivals depend more on strength than strategy.
