Wally (Japanese: ミツル Mitsuru) is one of the two rival characters in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Pokémon Emerald, the other being Brendan/May. He is the first rival not to be the player's first battle, and the first rival not to have a starter Pokémon.

Wally is a young, sickly boy who just moved to Petalburg City. Despite his illness, his dream is to train Pokémon.

His illness is never explained, but his symptoms appear to clear up in clean air, so it may be asthma.

In the games

Wally was a sick young boy who asked Norman, the Petalburg Gym Leader, to help him catch a Pokémon before he moves to Verdanturf Town to live with his aunt and uncle.

Norman allowed his child, the player of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald to assist Wally, and loaned Wally a Zigzagoon.

Using this, Wally was able to capture a Ralts. This is the catching tutorial of Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Ironically, it is the player who is teaching Wally to catch Pokémon.

Wally shows up again later in Mauville City, pleading with his uncle to let him challenge Wattson. He battles the player to prove his strength, but loses. He decides his uncle is right but says he will train to get stronger.

Wally eventually runs away from home and challenges the player at the end of Victory Road in Ever Grande City, seemingly totally recovered from his illness. He remains there, and it is possible to fight him several times per day.

Trivia

  • Though he is never classified as a "rival" in the games themselves, Wally essentially takes the place of Brendan/May as the player's rival after he/she decides to help with Professor Birch's studies rather than be a competitive Trainer.
  • He shares the same Chinese name with Dawn.
  • Wally is the only rival character to not have a Pokémon received from the professor of that region in the games, not counting Silver, who stole his.
