Blue (Japanese: グリーン Green) is the second main character of the manga series Pokémon Adventures. He is the grandson of Professor Oak.

Blue debuts in the first round of the manga, A Glimpse of the Glow where he and his rival Red sees a Mew in a Pallet Town forest. His first Pokémon was a Scyther -- he is shown one when he was a child. When he was young, he trained in Johto under Chuck, the Gym Leader of Cianwood City.

Blue's special skill, as described by Professor Oak, is Pokémon training -- that is, leveling them up and making them strong, and as such is referred to as the "Trainer" (Japanese: 育てる者 Trainer).

Blue has a serious, calm, and focused personality in everything he does. Although Red and Blue were once bothered by each other because their personalities are so opposite, they ended up resolving their differences.

Blue and his Scyther were trained by Chuck of Cianwood City when he was a child. Thus, Blue has some cursory knowledge of martial arts, and his Scyther knew Generation II techniques.

Blue also has a rivalry with Koga of Team Rocket. This began when Blue almost killed Koga's Arbok by having his Charmeleon cut it in two, and continued on throughout the series until Koga's reclusion.

Character history

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Blue in the first chapter

Blue and Red set off to compete in filling up the Pokédex for Professor Oak. Blue receives a Charmander from his grandfather and trains it extensively, causing it to evolve quickly.

During the course of their adventures, Red and Blue accidentally traded Pokémon. This caused Blue's Machoke to evolve, and Blue took the opportunity to teach Red's Pokémon more exotic, varied, and useful moves. Red's training on Blue's Pokémon made them more playful and lighthearted, something that greatly annoyed Blue.

Blue's cockiness becomes subdued as the story continues, and his personality becomes less mocking and more aloof and quiet. He often becomes flummoxed by Green's hyperactive meddling in everyone's affairs.

At the Pokémon League tournament, Red's Venusaur barely defeats Blue's Charizard. This tames their rivalry as the two finally begin to respect each other, and begin to become friendly rivals.

Yellow chapter

In the Yellow Saga, Blue tutors Yellow in more intense strategies for battles. He later teams up with Koga to fight Agatha of the Elite Four.

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Blue takes on the role of the Viridian City Gym Leader after Red is forced to turn it down. He captures several powerful Pokémon that were enraged by the Pokémon March Radio song and assists in the final battle with the Mask of Ice.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

Blue and Red go to Professor Oak's lab at the professor's request. They don't see the professor but find a note that tells them to return the Pokédexes. As they leave they are attacked by a mysterious Pokémon. They decide to go to the Sevii Islands. He and Red go through a series of tests given to them by Brinca to obtain the ultimate attacks, Blast Burn and Frenzy Plant. Blue teaches the legendary Template:Type2 move Blast Burn to his Charizard. After meeting up with Elite Four member, Lorelei, they split up to defend the Sevii Islands from Team Rocket. Blue fights with Oca of the Beast Warrior Trio and his Shuckles, learning that Team Rocket kidnapped his grandfather. After saving Prof. Oak, he traveled back to Kanto, and helped stop the Team Rocket airship from crashing into Vermilion City. He was turned into stone soon afterwards by an energy explosion.

He, along with the other four who were turned to stone, were shipped to the Battle Frontier in a box to be revived.

Emerald chapter

For most part of this chapter, he, along with four other Pokédex-holders, remained turned into stones. It was only at nearly the end of the chapter that he and the others were liberated by Emerald with the help of the wish-granting legendary Pokémon Jirachi.

Trivia

  • Blue and Green are the only main Pokémon Adventures characters whose names were changed for the English translation. This is due to the complexity of Generation I's game releases, where in Japan, Red Version was paired with Green Version (leaving Blue as the third), and in the rest of the world Red was paired with Blue (while there was no Green). Just the same, his game counterpart is named Blue in the English translation of Generation II's games.
  • Both the Japanese and Chinese print show that Professor Oak is Blue's paternal grandfather.
  • Blue is one of three Pokédex holders to have a last name, the other two are Sapphire and Platinum.
    • He is also the only male Pokédex holder to have a known last name.
