Wally

Why did they choose this name? What does it means?

It's just a name, I think. Like Brandan or May, there probably isn't any deep literary reasoning for it. FabuVinny 11:11, 26 January 2006 (CST)

Should Wally be considered a Rival character? ---- Shaddow Boy

Possibly, though he isn't the conventional rival. Prima's R/S strategy guide calls him your protégé. --FabuVinny 12:56, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Is the Sceptile Emerald has supposed to have evolved from Wally's Grovyle? --Zeta 07:28, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Trivia section

This also makes him the only rival who is not related to a celebrity, unlike Blue (Professor Oak), Silver (Giovanni), and Pearl (Palmer).

Was it ever really confirmed that Giovanni and Silver were related? It's most likely that they are, but I don't ever recall hearing that Silver was Giovanni's son other than the "Giovanni's kid has red hair" comment. It might be that Wally isn't the only rival related to a celebrity. --ケンジガール 04:13, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

It sure is now.WVI 06:12, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Anime

Isn't Wally the only rival not to have an Anime equivalent? ☆ShinyPiKa 16:59, 9 August 2008 (UTC)☆

Pearl? Silver got a five-second cameo, Brendan was a movie cameo, May was a main character, but Pearl's not even appeared. TTEchidna 17:10, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Now, with the anownsment of Jun, can we finnaly add this comment? §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 23:16, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Wally is not the rival of RSE. Brendan and May are the rivals. -Sketch 23:18, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually May and Branden are Peosudo-Rivals §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 23:20, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
The character who is the opposite gender choice is the rival. -Sketch 23:21, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
By that logic, Dawn/Lucas are Rivals §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 23:23, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Because they are. You don;t fight them, they fight with you. -Sketch 23:24, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Pearl is the Rival of the Player; not Lucas/Dawn.Secondly, the trivia States that Wally Becomes a Rival!!!! §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 23:27, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Wally essentially fills the place that the "true" rival Brendan/May abandons in Lilycove by appearing soon before the Elite Four challenge inside Victory Road, much like previous and later rivals do. TTEchidna 00:01, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
So is he considered a Rival or not §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 01:28, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Wally is the true rival. We don't even get to see the final evolution of Brendan or May's starter Pokémon. With Wally we do. Also we encounter him right before the Pokémon league so yeah. He's the real rival. --ケンジガール 02:58, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Wally takes place of the rival. He is rival-like. -Sketch 11:25, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Sketch, Im sorry but Wally IS THE TRUE RIVAL, not Brandan/May!!!! §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 00:15, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
Obviously what we have he is a conflicting opinion. I don't think you can classify him as a rival unless an official source of information says so. -Sketch 11:22, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry Sketch, but the others are right. Wally was revealed as the TRUE rival at the end of the main quest, as he was the one who reached the Victory Road after Brendan/May gave up on trying to reach the Pokémon League (assuming s/he was ever interested in it). Game Freak just wanted to keep him as your secret real rival for most, so that finding him in the Victory Road would be a surprise. Brendan/May was there to fooling you into believing that s/he was meant to be the rival.
Also, every Pokémon game lets you re-battle your rival infinite times. You can re-battle Blue and Silver in the Pokémon League in RGBY and GSC, Wally in the Victory Road in RSE, and Pearl in the Battle Area in DPPt. If Brendan/May was intended to be the true rival, you would be able to re-battle him/her, and Game Freak would have allowed him/her to reach the Victory Road. Spideym 23:29, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Wally isn't a rival. I guess people are upset that Brendan and May are such lame rivals, but really, Wally's not one. You only ever fight him twice, at the very beginning and end(I'm not counting the rematches), and he doesn't have his own theme. He doesn't even use the rival theme. Come on, guys.WVI 06:11, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
What's more, calling Wally a rival is like calling the Kimono Girls a villainous team. WVI 21:45, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Shiny Gardevoir?

"Wally's Gardevoir is notably one of the few Pokémon that can be shiny within another Trainer's party."

On one of my save-files, Wally encountered a shiny Ralts, however his Ralts was not shiny when I fought him later. Is that just my game, or is the trivia wrong? Could we get a picture of the shiny Gardevoir? --Bardock 19:02, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

I think the trivia is wrong. Every time I used AR his Ralts would appear as a normal Ralts when he encounters it in the wild. --ケンジガール 19:07, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
I have actually managed to get Wally to encounter a shiny Ralts (albeit by accident) but as I say, it wasn't shiny when I fought him later. --Bardock 19:42, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Well, as you proved, Wally can encounter a shiny Ralts. However, the programers probably didn't count on the Ralts being shiny, so they just programed it to be strictly non-shiny. Alpha CuboneKing 19:44, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm guessing it's because the Ralts was shiny because of the player's ID number. Once Wally catches it, that effect goes away. --ケンジガール 19:46, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Should I go ahead and change it to something along the lines of "Even if the Ralts that is caught by Wally is shiny, it will not retain its alternate coloration when fought later in the game."? --Bardock 12:38, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

His Gardevoir

Doesn't it deserve it's own page? I mean, it's his signature Pokémon and all. Reign 04:46, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

The notability criteria for Trainers' Pokémon, I believe, revolves around the anime. In the anime, Pokémon have characteristics and plot development and other exciting things. In the games, however, all Gardevoir has is a moveset and a couple of notes about ability and nature. All of this fits into the party template on Wally's page, so there isn't really anything to split off to a separate article. —darklordtrom 10:02, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

main character?

should we add him into template:Pokémon Adventures main character series even though he is not given a pokedex? he did own one once though. thought we should discuss this -Pokeant 10:28, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Walda

Could Walda be a counterpart? They're both sick, and the player helps cheer them up/get better. -- Pringles 17:40, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
