Wally is a character that appears in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. He is one of the player character's rivals during the course of the game.

Appearance

Wally is a young, slightly small for his age, skinny and frail boy with messy green hair that sticks up, pale skin, and bluish gray eyes.

Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald

Wally wears a white button-up long-sleeved shirt with pale blue buttons, khaki green, slightly baggy trousers that are similar to the color of his hair, and slip on shoes that are a pastel blue color with white soles.

Wally wears a white shirt with a big collar under a pastel blue jacket with large buttons, gray slim fit trousers with turn-ups on the ankles, and slip on shoes that are white with pastel blue soles. He also wears a brown shoulder bag and a Mega Pendant around his neck, shaped like Gallade's head.

Personality

Wally has a kind, calm, gentle, shy, and passive personality. Unlike most of the other Pokémon game rivals such as Blue, Silver, and Barry, who often taunt the player and love to show off, Wally doesn't. Instead, he is more shy and cautious with the things he does and is extremely humble. He is frail and sickly, but despite this, he tries to be brave. When he catches his first Pokémon, Ralts, he begins to gain an inner strength and confidence that builds within him throughout the game. Later, he becomes quite a powerful and skilled Trainer, who challenges the player character just before they exit Victory Road.

Biography

Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald

The player character first meets Wally at the Petalburg Gym talking to Norman about how to catch his first Pokémon. The player character then proceeds to help him catch a Ralts after which he leaves and goes to Verdanturf Town. You next meet Wally at Mauville City in front of the Gym where he is talking to his uncle about challenging his first gym. His uncle is skeptical but Wally insists that he could beat one because he and his Pokémon have grown stronger. Then Wally notices you and asks for a Pokémon battle to prove his skill to his uncle. The last time the player character sees Wally is at Victory Road between Ever Grande City and the Pokémon League, and he will have caught and trained more Pokémon and asks for another battle. After losing the battle, he will remain there for the rest of the game.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Most of the time, the player character meets Wally in the same places as in the previous games- Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. However, instead of evolving into a Gardevoir, the Ralts eventually evolved into a Gallade capable of Mega Evolving since the encounter in Victory Road.

The player character also later meets Wally after beating the Pokémon League, in the Delta Episode. Additionally, the player character meets Wally in the post-game in the Battle Resort.

Sun and Moon

Wally is one of the challengers the player character can take on at the Battle Tree.
