Blue (Japanese: グリーン Green), is the grandson of Professor Oak and is the main character's rival in the Generation I games. Blue becomes the Pokémon Champion but is quickly defeated by Red/Leaf, the player's character. In the Generation II games, he becomes the somber Gym Leader of Viridian City's Gym, known officially as the Viridian Gym, notable for being the only Gym Leader in the games to not focus on one specific type. He hands out the Earth Badge to trainers who defeat him. He often goes out of Viridian City, which causes problems for challenging trainers, as he's rarely found in his Gym.

Blue is differentiated from Red/Leaf by Professor Oak's notion at the end of the Generation I games and Generation III remakes that Red/Leaf cares for Pokémon better than Blue does. This is also evident as Blue leaves the Silph Co. building while it's still under Team Rocket's control, leaving Red/Leaf to take out Giovanni.

He is notable for being cocky and arrogant whenever the player's character encounters him; after losing, his typical way to bid goodbye is "Smell ya later!"

Quotes

Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow

Before the Champion battle: Hey! I was looking forward to seeing you, player! My rival should be strong to keep me sharp! While working on my Pokédex, I looked all over for powerful Pokémon! Not only that, I assembled teams that would beat any Pokémon type! And now! I am the Pokémon League Champion! player! Do you know what that means? I'll tell you! I am the most powerful trainer in the world!

After being defeated: NO! That can't be! You beat my best! After all that work to become LEAGUE champ? My reign is over already? It's not fair! Why? Why did I lose? I never made any mistakes raising my Pokémon... Darn it! You're the new Pokémon League Champion! Although I don't like to admit it.

Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal

Yo! Finally got here, huh? I wasn't in the mood at Cinnabar, but now I'm ready to battle you. ... You're telling me you conquered all the Gyms in Johto? Heh! Johto's Gyms must be pretty pathetic then. Hey, don't worry about it. I'll know if you are good or not by battling you right now. Ready, Johto Champ?

What? How the heck did I lose to you? ... Tch, all right... Here, take this -- it's Earth Badge.

... All right, I was wrong. You're the real deal. You are a good trainer. But I'm going to beat you someday. Don't you forget it!

Trivia

  • Gary Oak from the anime was designed after Blue. Furthermore, Gary's name comes from one of the optional names for Blue. Despite this, they are not the same character, not even in Pokémon Yellow.
  • Blue is the only Champion who is the player's rival. He is also the only Champion that the player has battled before, as well as the only Champion who does not induct the player character into the Hall of Fame (Prof. Oak does it instead).
  • He is the only League Champion thus far who changes his party after the player gets the National Dex.
  • Blue is the only Champion to date who can battle with an Electric Pokémon.
  • It is a mystery who Blue's predecessor as Champion was, or even if he had one.
  • Blue is the only Gym Leader not to have a type theme.
  • He is the only trainer where if the player whites out at specific points, will not be transported into the last healing spot.
  • His team as Gym Leader from Generation II is based on his team as Champion from Generation I without his starter Pokémon (instead taking whichever Pokémon it takes the place of in his other teams).
  • Blue is the single character with the most sprites in-battle, having ten total, due to his sprite changing as the player progresses through the game. In Generation III, he also has a sprite not used in-battle, but at the beginning of the game, therefore, he has 11 sprites.
