Throughout the original Pokemon games your rivals change, and the latest as far as the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald days is Wally, a sick child who you're trying to best. He's got asthma, and you're running around beating up on him and his Pokemon. You even face him at the end of Victory Road -- this kind boy who isn't a jerk and actually behaves like a normal human being. We felt kind of bad beating him to a pulp.
