Brendan & May

Your rivals in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire take on a different approach. For the first time ever your primary rival is the character opposite to your gender: May if you're a boy and Brendan if you're a girl. They are the child of Professor Birch and aid him in his research. They also appear more friendly than rivals of past games. As well, unlike previous games they don't make it as far with their teams as you and you don't get to see the final evolution of their starting Pokemon. The first time you meet the rival is after you move in, as asked by your mother..

Encounter #1: Route 103

Details:
Shortly after you receive your first Pokemon, the professor asks you to summon their child from Route 103. This is the second time meeting them and now they have a Pokemon to battle you with. As with previous games the Pokemon always has a type advantage to yours

Encounter #4: Lilycove

Details:
The final battle is outside the Lilycove Department Store, and you have to best your rival once more to get inside. This time they add a Swellow to their arsenal. Unfortunately, they don't fully evolve their starter Pokémon in this game, which prevents you from being able to see them in your Pokédex
