Brother or Father
Is he your rival's brother or father?--DSDark 16:25, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
His father. He refers to your rival as his son.--Angerman 03:31, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Do you think Volkner is related to them somehow?
Oh yea, they do look a lot alike. Ryguy 10:34, 19 August 2007 (EST)
- There's nothing canon, though. In fact, there is just as valid speculation that he is the father of the player's character. --FabuVinny T-C-S 14:45, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
- They are obviously related. Look at both of their pictures:
Look at how similar they look! --Shiny Noctowl 14:50, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
- Fanon speculation, not article-worthy.
BTW, where exactly in the game does he refer to Rival as his son? Jonah 17:15, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
In the time right before you fight him as the 21st trainer at the Battle Tower, or your first match with him. He says you played with <rival's name> while you guys were children and then he makes a reference to the rival being his son. Maybe you just mashed B when you first fought him?
