Rivals don't really make sense in Detective Conan, since all the heroes exist to solve crimes they don't really get anything for doing it in opposition to each other. There are the loose detective battle cases but they're rare and usually go back to working as a unit. You can see in some of the opening that they expected more a rivalry among a few characters (opening 5 mostly) but the story line just doesn't facilitate it.
