The rivals are kids that are just like you and the protagonists have a history with them. Their personalities are varied, but they're all willing to challenge you to see how strong you've become over your journey.

** One may even consider the case of the encounter with him in Silph Co. His placement is DEEP within the building, in the room with the warp panel that leads to the president's office and Giovanni himself. However, it's very clear that his sole reason for being there was to challenge Red, as he promptly leaves to go challenge the Elite Four when you beat him, '''[[SomebodyElsesProblem clearly uninterested in the fact that an infamous criminal organization has invaded and taken over a civilian corporation and taken people hostage]]'''. His only mention of it is that he muses how much trouble the Rockets gave Red before reaching him. While his Pokemon Origins self is considerably more dickish than in the game, in this situation he’s a bit better about it, it’s clear that his refusal to engage the Rockets is more out of considering that they’re in over their heads dealing with a notorious criminal organization. It helps that their encounter happens outside the building, the operation itself is clandestine instead of a city-wide invasion, with the two only learning about it from an employee that managed to escape, and Blue at least goes to inform the police with the employee while Red infiltrates the building.

** Being that the Raticate in-question disappears about the point you encounter Blue in Pokemon Tower, plus Blue seems a little bitter when you talk to him... the implications aren't pleasant.

* ActionGirl: The female protagonists by default.

* BadassAdorable: Majority of the protagonists, male and female, are no older than kids. [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Generation V's]] and [[VagueAge maybe]] ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X and Y]]''[='=]s characters are in their teens.

* AnimeHair: In contrast to the player character's hat, they tend to have instantly recognizable hairstyles.
* {{Badass}}: They stay competitive with the player character who always becomes the best trainer in the region. They're at least equal to Elite Four Members, if not the Champion, in power by the end of the game.

* {{Badass}}: Takes ''no'' nonsense from Team Plasma. At one point when you enter Driftveil City, he just rushes onto the scene and slaps/shoves/punches/otherwise physically assaults a grunt like it's nothing.
* BerserkButton: He pretty much flips out the instant he sees a member of Team Plasma, both new and old. Part of his CharacterDevelopment is about outgrowing this.

* ActionGirl: Not Shauna herself ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass most of the time]]), but her starter Pokémon will ''always'' be female. This is a first compared to the rivals having male ones.



* TheChick: Values friendship and teamwork. She's also one of the driving forces for pushing the rival towards enjoying things aside from just getting stronger.
