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.

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).
  • It is currently unknown whether his English name remains as "Blue" or if, with the release of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, it has been retconned to "Green". Many fans believe that a remake of the Generation II games will provide a clear answer to this question, as the originals provided the official names of both Blue and his rival, Red.
  • It is a mystery who Blue's predecessor as Champion was.
  • He is the Only Gym-Leader that appear in the games that doesnt have main Pokemon type
