(Really? IT'S ONLY YOU! We refer to him as Pearl and it's agreed. You can call him even Stinky if you want but it's NOT OFFICIAL. To be honest, a much more likely name for him is Barry.)

'''Pearl''' (Japanese: '''パール''' ''Pearl'') is the [[rival]] character in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}.
 
 
The character {{Special|Pearl}} from the [[Pokémon Special]] manga is based on this Pearl. A version of the character also appears in the [[Pokémon DP (Shigekatsu Ihara)|Pokémon DP]] manga.
 
 
This particular rival also appears on the {{TCG ID|Diamond & Pearl|Rival|113}} card in the {{TCG|Diamond & Pearl}} and {{TCG|Secret Wonders}} expansions of the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]].
 
 
Pearl is always in a hurry, and because of this, often crashes into other people or misses important details. He is incredibly determined and it is very difficult to discourage him; the only thing that has done this so far was his crushing loss to the [[Team Galactic]] [[Commander]], [[Jupiter]]. He is also quite the braggart, often boasting about his battling prowess or how cool his Pokémon are. Pearl ''does'' have a soft side however, as seen after the wild Starly attack.
 
 
Pearl is also one to take risks and quickly jump into action; it was this behavior that caused the player and himself to be attacked by [[wild Pokémon|wild]] {{P|Starly}}, setting off the chain reaction that would result in the player receiving his/her first Pokémon.
 
 
After becoming the [[Sinnoh]] [[League Champion]], the player can find him training at [[Stark Mountain]] during the week, and at the [[Fight Area]] on weekends, ready to battle. Unlike the player and {{ga|Lucas}}/{{ga|Dawn}}, Pearl did not receive a Pokédex, due to him rushing out of [[Professor Rowan]]'s lab before Rowan could give him one.

If player doesn't give the name for Rival, in the Japanese [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions|Diamond]] the name パール ''Pearl'' is automatically given. In [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions|Pearl]] at the same situation, the name ダイヤ ''Dia'' is automatically given. In English version, the same thing happens. However, in the English version of [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions|Pearl]], the automatically-given name is ''Diamond'', not Dia. This is because while the English games have higher character count limits for name fields, the player's and rival's names in the Japanese game can only be five characters long. '''ダイヤ''' ''Dia'' is three characters long, while the full name '''ダイヤモンド''' ''Diamond'' exceeds the count at six characters.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
* Pearl has achieved a high score of 2000 at [[Pal Park]] which serves as the default high score.
 
* Although Pearl can only be battled on weekends, if the player saves the game in front of him on a Sunday, he can still be battled on weekdays if the player does not leave the Fight Area (even to go to the [[Pokémon Center]]) during the periods of time in between.
 
* Strangely, among the default names for him in the Japanese version of [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions|Pokémon Diamond]] is Shigeru, one of the names that are default in both [[Pokémon Red and Blue Versions|Pokémon Red]] and [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|Pokémon FireRed]] for {{ga|Blue}}. "{{Gary}}" is also one of the optional names for him in the German and Italian-language versions of Pokémon Diamond. Gary's Korean Name, 바람 ''Baram'' can also be found among optional names for him in Korean-language version. Another point of similarity can perhaps be found in the fact that a relative of theirs is well-known in the Pokémon world, being [[Tower Tycoon Palmer|the]] [[Frontier Brain]] of Sinnoh's {{si|Battle Tower}} in Pearl's case, and being [[Professor Oak|a]] [[Pokémon professor]] in the case of Blue. Furthermore, both rivals are childhood acquaintances of the [[playable character]]s who go on to compete against them in collecting [[Gym]] badges, unlike {{ga|Silver}} and [[Wally]]. Finally, Pearl uses the {{p|Starly}} line, while Blue uses the {{p|Pidgey}} line; they both use {{p|Heracross}} at some point in their respective games.
 
* All Japanese default names for Pearl come from game staff members' first names. They are all listed in the game's credits. Jun is from '''[[Jun'ichi Masuda]]''', production director and music composer. Shigeru is from '''Shigeru Ōmori''', game design leader. Kōji comes from '''Kōji Nishino''', a game designer. Toshinobu is from '''Toshinobu Matsumiya''', game scenario author. Hisashi is from '''Hisashi Sogabe''', battle system programmer. Sōsuke is from '''Sōsuke Tamada''', field system programmer. Akito is from '''Akito Mori''', communication system programmer and Nozomu is from '''Nozomu Saito''', also one of programmers.
 
* Pearl has a [[Pokétch]], however, it is orange, while the player can only have a blue one (if playing as {{ga|Lucas}}) or a pink one (if playing as {{ga|Dawn}}).
 
* Pearl has the highest level trained Pokémon in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, namely his [[Level]] 74 {{p|Torterra}}/{{p|Infernape}}/{{p|Empoleon}} after defeating the [[Elite Four]] 20 times. {{p|Arceus}}, {{ga|Red's Pikachu}} (as well as the rest of {{ga|Red}}'s party, save {{p|Espeon}}), [[Steven]]'s entire party, and {{ga|Blue}}'s [[starter Pokémon|starter]] still outclass him, however.
 
** In {{v2|Platinum}}, his team has significantly increased [[level]]s, with his [[starter Pokémon]] becoming the highest-level Pokémon in the series (even beating {{ga|Red's Pikachu}}) at level 85.
 
* Of the three main characters of Generation IV's games, Pearl is the only one whose outfit remains much the same between {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}} and {{v2|Platinum}}, with his shirt's sleeves lengthened.
 
* Unlike rivals for the [[Generation II]] and {{gen|III}} games, who had only cameo appearances, Pearl has an anime counterpart in {{an|Jun}}, making him the first game rival since {{ga|Blue}} to do so.
