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 as well as their Generation III remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. Blue becomes the Pokémon Champion but is quickly defeated by Red/Leaf, the player's character. In the Generation II games, Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, as well as their Generation IV remakes, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, he becomes the somber Gym Leader of Viridian City's 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. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, he also hands out TM92 (Trick Room). 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 known for being cocky and arrogant whenever the player's character encounters him; after losing, his typical way to bid goodbye is "Smell ya later!"

In the games

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. To be able to rebattle him, the player needs to go meet Daisy Oak and get Blue 's Call register to the player's PokéGear.

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, as well as the only Champion who does not induct the player character into the Hall of Fame (Prof. Oak does it instead).
  • Blue is the only Champion to date who can battle with an Electric Pokémon.
  • Blue is the only rival whose starter can be weak to the player's starter (his Vaporeon in Pokémon Yellow).
  • His team as Gym Leader from Generation II is based on his team as Champion from Pokémon Red and Green 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, and in Generation IV both his battle and VS sprites, giving him a total of 13.
  • Blue is one of only two NPCs who has been both a Gym Leader and a Champion. The other is Wallace (though Wallace was a Gym Leader before becoming Champion, and Blue does the reverse). Both of them were the eighth Gym Leader and Champion of a region introduced in an odd-numbered generation.
  • All Japanese games that feature Blue as the rival has at least one of his default names derived from key people in the Pokémon franchise.
  • When fighting Blue for the final time in Generation I, there is a glitch that automatically turns on the battle animations.
  • Some fans assume from Lance's words that Blue was the very first person to ever defeat the Elite Four.
  • When rematching Blue, he replaces two of his Pokémon with a Tyranitar and a Fighting-type Pokémon. In FireRed/LeafGreen, he replaced his Pidgeot and Rhydon with Tyranitar and Heracross. In HeartGold/SoulSilver, he replaced his Gyarados and Alakazam with Tyranitar and Machamp.
