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)


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)


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)

ORAS Wally

Just saying, he uses a model like other important characters rather than VS artwork. Eridanus (talk) 10:57, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Certified Trainers: Wally, You

Remember those statues at every Gym in X/Y? The ones that seem to only show your name? I don't know when it starts, but while at Sootopolis Gym, I happened to check it. Wally's name was on the statue. I believe this needs noting somehow, even if it's just as trivia, but I do not know when this begins to happen. Clearly, it's after the events in Mauville when he loses to you while trying to challenge Wattson, so the fact that his name appears on the statue at the Gym suggests he was there before the player. I'll have to get Alpha Sapphire to further research when his name begins to appear on the signs. CycloneGU (talk) 05:43, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

He shows up in the fourth gym. Aidanzapunk (talk) 21:03, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I discovered someone had already researched that and added on in the article. All is well. Thanks! CycloneGU (talk) 22:02, 26 December 2014 (UTC)


is his age really 47!!! I mean, it is said he is young, 47 means he is too old. Please someone confirm his real age and regard the issuePratik_12 (talk) 04:06, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Move to Wally

Other rivals such as Cheren, Bianca, Hugh, Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor have pages at undisambiguated titles, even when they have counterparts in the anime or manga. Major characters such as Brock and Misty also are treated this way. Is there a real reason for this page to be disambiguated? If this page is not moved, Wally should at least redirect to this page, as it is the main page about Wally, containing a brief section about his Adventures counterpart. --Abcboy (talk) 16:57, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

If this page is not moved or "Wally" is not redirected here, the manga and TCG info needs to be moved under a "Counterparts" section, like on May (game). --Abcboy (talk) 03:08, 28 May 2015 (UTC)


Wally's Magnezone in the Battle Maison Multi Battle doesn't have Sturdy. I don't know if it has either Analytic or Magnet Pull, but it was just OHKO'd in one of my battles by a Breloom's Focus Punch. Scribbl 05:10, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

It has Magnet Pull, sorry for the mistake! --Spriteit (talk) 07:29, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Ability Capsule

I saw in the remaches section that it is possible, although rare, that Wally will give away an Ability Capsule as a prize upon being defeated, but there is no mention about the real chances of this evente happening. I'm not sure if anyone knows what are the chances, but if someone does it should be added to the page, or otherwise there should be a note saying that that section is incomplete. Suic12- (talk) 23:08, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Pokemon Sun/Moon Sprite

I got the sprite from the article "Pokemon Sun and Moon" and made it like the other sprites (no backround, just the character), but, there's just one problem. I'm new here and can't upload. Can someone upload them for me? It's on my website. ( (in "extra" section)) - unsigned comment from Reppop (talkcontribs)

Fourth Rematch

Does somebody know what triggers Wally's last battle? I have tried everything (beating the League, waiting a day, a higher Battle Maison streak...) but I can't battle him. Does somebody know what are the conditions to battle him? - unsigned comment from Prog rocker (talkcontribs)

The likely answer. o7 -- Kai * the Arc Toraph 10:25, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
So, it's random? I guess that explains why people have problems fighting him. --Prog rocker (talk) 23:01, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Trainer's Eyes/Match Call

It's listed twice under Games. Is that intentional or a mistake that got overlooked? DarienLeonhart (talk) 00:35, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks. --Spriteit (talk) 08:59, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Return to "Wally" page.
